incessant rain

Posted on Updated on

absorbed
in the symphony
of raindrops,
our shadows lend expression
to undiluted colors
of madness
of dreams
as you become my muse
inspiring me,
loving me

you come closer
draw me near
a meeting
upon the altar
of our shrine

a sweet torture
as amorous stars
fall from your gaze
into this silent reverie
fading us away

boundaries dissolve
words melt away
in this duet
between the shores
of delight and pain
submerged,
we loose ourselves
in the spell
that remains

……

inspired by music – Night of Rain by Craig Pitcher

    boundaries dissolve
    words melt away
    in this duet
    between the shores
    of delight and pain

    achingly beautiful words and music Himani,
    ty for sharing both. yearning and music are
    constant poetic inspirations, aren’t they?
