Marble Floor

Marble Floor

Like marble floor
love to see your footprints
in the moon reflections,
I know there are less human now.

Inured, deeply wound,
less courage, less splendor,
of long forgotten prayers,
weep like a tree in the blinding rain.

memories lost in the deep gorges
and fear has expanded manifold,
still a rare moment
etches a long shadow.

a stream of opulence,
which engulfs and embraces
love-struck looks,
induce a tremor of the past.

we hold each other
in our endless travels,
in desire and lyrics of dream,
in colours of scar and sacrifice.

    Marble floors ,as they mostly appear in a chess board like pattern, the blacks & whites are like the twine characters in this poem. Yes, marble floors have a story to tell.
