Away from the prying eyes

behind the velvet curtain

resides my love

surreptitiously framed

at ease, on the wall

Your luminous eyes

pore over my turbulent soul

your silver tresses

mock the vibrancy of youth

The splendor of your blazing gaze

ignites my body

mind and soul

Thank goodness

the curtain takes a toll

liberating me

from dark desne thoughts

and a lingering pain

locked in our hearts

The rhythm of our tete a tete

sings an unheard melody

as I spend some stolen moments

with you

My secret is safe

even as I count days

for our audience

O curtain!

lavish my love with umpteen graces

I stealthily plant a kiss on the cold canvas


for you to find my soul.
