love beckons

Posted on Updated on

your dusky glow brings me near
your persistent lingering, even closer
ever since I have found this bliss
ever since I have known you
I haven’t gone back
I only made appearances

in what I hold most sacred
my heart, my flesh
my soul, my worth
you are everywhere I see

don’t acccuse me of loving you so –
how am I to exist
when all I feed on is your light
how am I to breathe
when its your breath that fills my air

don’t let me yearn
for just a brush of you
let me dissolve in you and die
make me that part of you
that can never be separated .. ever again

    This is a beautiful poem. To me, it is reminiscent of the love poetry of the great Sufis.

        Indeed your poetry has the reflections of a Sufi spirit: Ibn Arabi of Murcia, Spain; Rumi of Wakhsh, Persia; Bulleh Shah of Uch, then India and now Pakistan; and many others. Look forward to more of your poetry of love.

    Love beckons is pure passion! Few can even fathom passion in words. You can!
