intoxicating splendor

where do I exist, dear Beloved?
one minute I am here
another, with you
what place do I call mine
this or that?

what is this space
separating yet binding us
where I stay
enchanted and scattered
like a million stars
reaching out to the Sun

homeward bound

the pain of longing
ferments me slowly
but what use
is this sweetness
when all I have desired
is you
take me with the flow
dissolve me in you
till no more of me remains
only you, only you!

love beckons

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

bare soul

what can any of them possibly give me
when they all originated from you
tiny specks of your magnificence

what can I ask from those
who wander looking for answers themselves
amazed and puzzled by the mystery of it all

they might not hear me, and I might suffer
they might deny me what I ask, and I might grieve

what can I possibly say from my tiny mouth
to get your attention?
what can I possibly do with this withering body
to have your love by my side?

in your ethereal beauty and grace, lies the wisdom of the saints
in your silence, lies thousands of answers
when your one glance can change my world around
why would I desire anything from anyone else?

tonight, I offer my tender soul to you
let it lament endlessly and parch away
or make it resonate with your eternal frequency
in the realm of your sacred essence
