Ever since

Ever since you stepped

Into the private chambers of my heart

That was vacant since time immemorial,

You unraveled the mysteriousness

Of my existence, profound and profuse,

Adding rhyme and reason

To its being the seat of love.


I overcame the dark fears triumphantly.

In jubilation, silent and solemn,

I ran towards the undulating plains

Oblivious of the thunder and lightning

While the smiling sun

Splashed its rays over my face

Beaming with unadulterated joy.


I sang to the rhythm of the bees

About your love that exaltedme

And for which I had pined till now.

While the flame of the aromatic candle

Flickered across my glowing lips,

Touching the luscious rise and fall

Of my bosom beautiful,

Not leasing my imagination,

I thought of your smiles,

Sometimes subtle, sometimes hidden.


You poured in my mouth honey

Extracted from the matured comb,

Garlanded my neck smooth

With glistening jasmines,

Nurturing the depths of my heart

With emotions erotic

With nothing to impede its brilliance.


And last night, when I swam

In your uncharted waters,

Transgressing all barriers,

In a pure poetic ambiance,

I could feel the fragrance,

Of a million roses in bloom

While your lips touched mine

In unison, aprelude to another

Love story which has neither

A beginning nor an end.
