Losing Sight


For a prompt of Carry on Tuesday #118

“An eye for an eye will make the whole world go blind”
-Mahatma Gandhi
Task: To use the first five words

*      *         *        *

An eye for an eye
You see plucked pupils everywhere
Resented souls, poisoned intentions
As these dark sockets find beauty
In the glaring pupils of the glazed souls
It irritates, it mocks blindness!

@ Whitesnake, I will not bedgrudge you your interpretation. It made me look at it from a different angle. Thank you for stopping by.

@ Nara Malone, thank you for your sentiments and for reading the piece.

@ Beccagivens, appreciative for your humbling comment

@ trailsofthepen, you made me re-read the poem and boy, you could be right! Thanks for the comment
