untouched melody

Posted on Updated on

there is pain
that lies hidden away
the pain whose source is unknown,
where it originates, why it is there
an almost unbearable heaviness
as if a huge tragedy transpired before
perhaps in some other lifetime
as if memory of the experience
has faded away
but the agony, the pathos still remain
a sorrow I can drown myself in
a loss, a separation, a heartache
that consumes me at times
and stirs up the unknown,
the unanswered questions,
the endless pain
that flows so smoothly
when little things, their deeper perception
spoken words, their hidden silences
a knowing touches me so
it is often then
that a liberating realization,
a strange yet familiar feeling
breaks open the shell
that encloses my understanding
of the world around me
of the depths of my own soul

blossomed hopes
feathery dreams
free falling
alight
upon my breath
when your love
fills my air

gentle explosions
of vibrant colours
dance softly
in a trance
as I savour your
honey drenched thoughts

where else
would you find me
than right next to you –
surrendered
among swirling galaxies
of bubbling happiness
lazing away
in perfect bliss

your bubblesome presence
at the threshold
of my soul
scatters fragrance
in the valley
of my dreams
the things
you say
in untamed moments
the subtle clues
you drop
from your inmost thoughts
I lovingly pick up
and press against my bosom
while an innocent tear
slowly trickles
down my cheek
in happiness
that I have longed for
in knowing
that you are here
and I am with you now

rufescent gaze

how beautifully strange
is stealing of flaming glances
with your beloved –
intoxication suffuses
from each pore
when those eyes dawn over you

time, space, sounds vanish
forgetfulness embraces
the world crumbles away
each sigh, every lament
all prayers answered
tenfold

in the opening of hearts
enough is not enough
a sweet blossoming death
in every exchange
