Severing ties with my claustrophobic box,
Without a flicker of sympathy,
With neither regret nor remorse,
My higher reason helpedme
Discover ultimate love,
The love I was looking for
With tears in my pleading eyes.
I had known the twisting and turning
Adventures of love,
With all the highs and the lows,
The strands of thoughts, sublime,
The dreams and reverie,
The lucid feelings and touches,
Transmitting glimpses of love
And the beautiful words playing charade,
Making love so mechanical,
So vacant and so transient,
Like an ocean without a shore.
There was a strong emotion in me,
So desperate was I to release it.
It seemed like a mystery,
So hard to demystify.
Like a fire of desire,
Soft and palpable,
It slept in the grey ashes
Of my tiny heart.
And when I met you,
It was like a celestial blessing,
Difficult to fathom and hard to speak out.
Similar to a strange metaphysical super reality,
It looked like a juxtaposition
Of the reality and the surreal.
Sitting in the cool pond in the stone quarry,
I looked at the Nerium Oleander’s
Similar to a star of David.
I said to myself,
‘To a star, my course is fixed.’
I crossed the oceans
And while the comforting touch
Of your kisses softened my feelings,
I fixed my love’s flag
In your heart
Which I had conquered
