While The Moon Hid Her Face

Sadness, a quintessential part

Of our lives governs our heart

Since the creation of the universe.


There are institutes of seismology,

Meteorology and hydrology

For various studies of  earth’s functional behaviour

Across the sands of time.


And yet, though the heart has its own

Fire, inundations, tsunamis and sandstorms,

There is so little research done on it.

Poor heart! Just the essentials and that’s all.

With a single sigh, it disappears

In distant solitude, running out of time.


However, hers is a heart

Which  always leaves an impression appeasing

Wherever she trod with a holistic approach,

Leaving the air replete with

The scent of a million roses.


While the log fire roared

And the turquoise-hued waves

Touched the shores with peerless love,

Her mind brimmed with memories sweet,

Giving to love a transcending meaning.

She felt she knew her lover

Since a million years.

With a sheepish expression,

She looked at the feisty clouds

High up in the sky

While the rhythmic move

Of the swirling branches

Fanned the air with grace.


All of a sudden, she felt her lover’s hands

Holding her breasts lovingly,

Caressing them with soft touches

And gently drawing her close to him,

So passionate, so compassionate in his moves.

And now the fire of desire

Rose with bright flames

Trying to reach those great heights.

Sometimes hard and at other times harder,

And yet, always desiring for more,

The moments stretched

To phenomenal altitudes

Charting the transparent territories of love

While the moon hid her face behind the clouds

For a sight hot as this one,

She had never seen.
