Severing ties with my claustrophobic box,
Without a flicker of sympathy,
With neither regret nor remorse,
My higher reason helped me
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 the reveries,
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.
I seemed like a mystery, so hard to demystify.
Like a fire of desire, soft and palpable,
It slept in the grey ashes of my 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 real reality and the surreal.
Sitting by the cool pond in the stone quarry,
I looked at the Nerium Oleander’s
Six-fold symmetry, similar to the star of David.
I said to myself,
‘To a star, my course is set.’
I crossed the oceans
And while the comforting touch
Of your kisses softened my feelings,
I fixed my love’s flag in your heart.
