My Valentine

My signature on your heart

A miniature of my epic love carved

Alphabets and words never required.


My memories on your heart

Moments written by transparent ink on autograph

Inside, a peacock feather winked.


My love on your heart

The infinite verses scribbled the sonata

The nightingale never stopped singing.


My presence on your life

A morphed shadow of an unlucky clone

My existence was an allusion.


My desire on your life

We met on dreams as transparent tears.

Musky scent was never smelled.
