I can't get rid of this line of poetry from my head

It is from Ahmad Shawqi's famous poem on Zahlah, Ya Jarat Al-Wadi, and it says:
وتعـطـلـت لغـة الكـلام وخاطـبـت
عيني في لغة الهوى عــيـنـاك

(And the language of speech was spoiled, and my eyes communicated with your eyes through the language of love)
PS Sulayman is right: it should be, and your eyes communicated with my eyes through the language of love).
