absence

cadence

Posted on Updated on

I trace you
in quiet moments
of love and madness
in a language
beyond words
for thoughts collapse
when lips part
and a hidden speech flows
from your soul to mine

I beckon you
to dream
for within you, my love
the shine of a million diamonds
is waiting to gleam
the likes of what
death cannot touch
and life cannot flee

I treasure
your most aching parts
for even though
we have loved and lost
we still believe
in the sheer enormity
of our sacred beating hearts

I hold you
in tight embrace
for even as rain pours
your love soaks me
to my bones
without a warning
it often comes crashing
at the threshold
of my soul

I invite you
to come in and stay
for my universe expands
in encounters
like yours
where in just feeding
each others appetite
and caring, one finds oneself
cared for

so hold my hand
and lets chase cosmos
and the stars at play
as the Divine writes
our eternal fate
between me and you
beloved soul
love will always find a way

reticent reverie

Posted on Updated on

come to me
not as a wild thought
a forgotten image
or a transient feeling

not as the wave
that returns
after kissing the shore

not as light
that trickles
through the leaves
on a sunny day
unsure of its presence
or absence

but as the coolness of sand
under the shade of the sun
as the white of pearls
or the green of leaves
as the lasting depth
of ocean bottom

stay with me
like inherent nature of things
constant yet fascinating
unwavering
enduring
real

on days like this
words fail me
lost without you,
my steps falter
these lips tremble
and breath hardens

‘when will you come?’ my heart cries
‘melt my frozen body
in your warm embrace
give me a reason to stay alive,
wipe tears off my face?’

I wish you could see
how I await your arrival
lost in space and time,
wandering between
the dead and the divine

and when only stillness flows
in endless motion
how I lie scattered
in a grave
on the edge
of a glowing ocean
