Manatita is an esteemed author living in London, UK. He writes spiritual books, flash fiction and esoteric poetry, his favourite genre.


“I’m so glad, my Love, so glad

That even my shadows, have felt

The sweet tenderness of Your gaze.

I am so glad, my Love, so glad

That You sweeten the pangs of my adversity.

I’m so glad, my Love, so glad

That one tender kiss from You,

Can cover a million sorrows.

I’m so glad, my Love, so glad

That while I was so eloquent in speech,

There was a lot to be desired in harmony;

You carved and moulded me well.

I’m so glad, my Love, so glad

That you placed roses on my Spirit

And not thorns on my soul.”

“My sweet child, O my crushed angel,

Into the depths of the abyss I came

And shared your distress.

For I need the joy of a Lover’s longing,

To rush through your pores.

My sweet child, o my crushed angel, come,

For I have a thousand stories to tell you.

I want you to smile; to transmit

The beauty of the Heart,

To the dark night of the Soul.

Here, open up thyself, let me stab you

With the arrow of the New Jerusalem,

Flooding your core with My resplendence;

Emanating fireflies;

Dancing in the moonlit beauty of twinkling stars.

Struggling Against Self to Enjoy Thy Delight

"Reposed in sleep ... or death,

He paints his tapestry, upon a canvas of sorrow.

A focus of concern taints his brush,

Dabbling at the onlookers gaze.

Calligraphing a heart-rending awe,

The room renders an unforgiving silence,

Made more potent as the drama unfolds.

Captured in this poignant energy of solemn attraction,

A long sinewy muscle adorns itself.

Descend! O my Beloved! Chisel a path of Light before me.

illuminate the dark mists from my tears;

Show me a way to disperse my sorrows.

I lie in stupor, on the red satin of my lover’s lap,

Struggling against self, to enjoy Thy Delight.

-Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 7th December, 2017.

" Love touched my Soul;

I was burnt with the fire of God's piercing rays.

I escaped my drunken ways;

Basked in the delight of His supernal rays." -Manatita

Love, more Love
