Do not keep me waiting for too long

Honey, please don’t,

Please don’t keep me waiting for too long.


With pleading eyes, I look at the moon,

Her beams filtering through the mango leaves,

And a cluster of palm trees

With beauty beyond comparison.


She knows that every inch of me is aching

With sweet pain

And my naked and unpretentious heart

Is beating faster and faster

While my journeying mind

Is trying to keep pace with your steps

Deep down the valleys.


She has promised to hold back the morrow.

Meanwhile, inhaling a deep inaudible breath,

I feel the wind rustling through the leaves

Kissing each other in love and camaraderie,

Releasing their charisma, sweetly seduced.


To comfort my throbbing soul,

I look at the gazelles

Running across the woods

Without presumptions nor reservations

While the fluffy cotton buds burst

And the pomegranates split.


While the Summer breeze sends

A rippling effect on the lake water,

I look at the stars

Riding across the milky way,

Enamored by the beauteous stance

Of the velvety moon.

With every shooting star, I make a promise

While silence becomes a source of strength

To my bursting breasts.


It drizzles.

Little did the drizzle think that

It would make me wet,

Igniting the fire of desire

Burning deep within me

With a lilac flame.


Please come faster.

I am begging the wind

To push you gently towards me

And the moon to show you your way.

I cannot wait anymore,

Please, do not keep me

Waiting for too long.
