Kiss Me … Wrap This Heart In The Fire Of Your Breath.

Kiss me … wrap this Heart in the aroma of Thy breath.

This sweet gaze; this burning fire of Your lips;

Those magical blue eyes,

Pulls me to the lap of Your indigo moonlight.

Come, my Sweetheart! On this Valentine's special,

The crescendo of my Love is immense!

I want to die … to walk on the battlefield of Hades,

Sacrificing all for the glory of Thy name.

These precious roses that I carry today,

Was grown from the weeping of my Soul.

When a chivalrous knight encounters his Beloved,

He aspires to wrap and be enwrapped in ecstasy.

O my Queen! Come! The hunger in my core is aching.

Kiss me … wrap this Heart in the fire of Your breath.

The Agony of Longing

Life’s journey, like swimming, is not always easy,

Even for the initiated.

The tides of man, rushes through

The mind’s turbulent waters;

Sails upstream, pushing against a raging current --

A crescendo of ideas, caught in a stream of struggle.

Amidst all this, my life - boat plies, in a spiral,

Swinging, as on a Libran Pendulum,

Rising above the crest of the horizon,

Before landing into the drop below.

I am the seeker; yet feels like the sought,

Even while feeling the agony of longing.

The Grace of Love’s forgiveness-ocean,

Like the waves, lashes against my burning Heart.

_Manatita, The Lantern Carrier. 13th February, 2018.
