Long ago, I gazed into your eyes and then stopped breathing but still survived.
Now day and night I only sigh and dream of being in the midst of your enchanted company.
The song of love that came from once your silent lips found quickly its true aim mesmerized my innocent heart which beat on still the same.
But my legs went numb and my tongue grew sweet when the fragrance of your skin my love enveloped me in its warm embrace.
Come play with me I would sometimes say but you always had it your way and how glad I was to be your slave with no power to make you stay.
So, in my solitude content with love completely unspent tonight, like all the other nights you keep dancing in my dreams.
Play hide and seek not too much longer and risk this longing grow even stronger.
When people ask unashamedly why your love flees from me embarrassed and silent I stay.
What honest answer could one make and can you also say for sure that in choosing me as your lover you have made some grave mistake.
Pleasures and pains haunt me still but no one asks me when I will stop living on dreams of yesterdays, quietly lay down on the hill and slide into eternity.
Nowhere to look, no lights around don’t want to see any sights at all with rhythm of your lullaby will come the thunder of the soundless sound.
I only miss you when you are gone. Not that I mind being alone but having known your touch it’s too much to bear sometimes that my heart has split in two looking for the door that opens to your majesty.
My steps are faltering and unsure this hard fought battle, although lost pains all the more; it was almost won.
Walking through the desert dry sipping water from mirages does help to pass the time but I can’t quench my thirst divine.
It’s hard to say why staring at the blazing sun the eyes now do not try to see the cool moon and stars and what else hangs in the evening sky.
Now, who can say how I get by and breathe just enough air to stay alive.
