sigh

eyes

even the moon
s.i.g.h.s
at the sight
of your incandescent eyes
pregnant with light

don’t be afraid to show
what you know
what you hold inside

whats kept hidden
suffocates, slowly dies
or worse what you make visible
will be perceived as a lie

only the truth that is burning well
will help you survive
a deeper knowing, a fearless thought
a feeling that consumes alive

say what is on your mind
while you’re still full of life
let go, love, express, ignite
it is definitely worth a try

my love, don’t be shy
no breath comes out of a dead self
not even a sigh!

I see you
though you are not here
in the warm eye of the sun
in the golden sparkle of galaxies

I feel you
though you are not with me
like the taste
of an ancient love
on my lips

I have known you
like the ocean
knows the water
and desert knows the sand

my love, its more
than a vague remembrance
a raw craving
a humble yearning

I am there
even when I am not
you are here
even when you are not

don’t you feel
sometimes
a thousand sighs of me
breathing through you?

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
