The moment I close my eyes,
I profoundly feel you by my side
Embracing my indelible scars.
I feel your soothing hands holding mine.
Your bewitching eyes gazing at mine.
Your beats syncing with mine.
Your fingers tangled in my tresses.
The moment I feel you to my veins,
I feel you painting my suffocating soul
With shades of warmth.
I discern your essence
Casing my shattered core.
I discover you effacing
The ravages of life from my dungeon.
I perceive you weaving
The webs of harmony in my head.
Let me again plant desires
In this relinquished heart.
Let me dwell in the ambience
Of your pious heart
And flow in the veins
Of your vivacious being.
Let me free myself
From these fetters of agony
And wear your imperfections as Ornaments.
Let your arms be my eternal refuge
And the lands of love be our destination.
I know it is all my insight
But I don’t want to blend with reality.
All I want is breathe, breathe and breathe!
Breathe in your aura, an atmosphere of tranquility.
All I want is to behold your breath,
For beholding your breath
Will be such a SUBLIME delight to behold!
