Unkissed Kiss


why you vanished
like migrating birds
from the vista
of darling desires

on the melancholic wings
my un-quenched thirst
flaming and burning

in the depth of horizon
deserted dreams
falling like setting sun

yet I wait for you
near the grave
with unlit pyre
to embrace you
to own you
like a soft
unkissed kiss.

    Denture of your unkissed, kiss
    yet not complete

    the reality of my dream

    The craving par-excellent!
