Desire - A Commitment

Updated on October 15, 2016

This raining night,
are we having, cold feet?
cause our breaths,
have such warmth.

Wish these drizzles, fizzle sooner,
our natural desire for pleasure,
Lest, fires could rain,
inside our brain.

Probably, the rain god is evaluating our resolve,
towards, the promises and resolutions, we have.

To be together forever, is our dream dreamt.
Containment of contentment, too, is our merit.

Until we've tied, the knot,
as i can, so you can,
stall, this instant gratification.

      Tamara it all my pleasure too. I like to keep things short and crisp. Only a few are big too, it all depends on flow and thoughts that I have to churn to make the point.

      Thanks for a great comment. I cherish them.

      Very wise words, Hari. It's a rarity to meet someone who does not go along with the crowd. What I especially like about your poems is that they say a Lot in very few words. They are easy, and untiring to read due to this aspect. I really do enjoy reading your words and am so happy I came by to see your writing!

      Hugs,

      Tamara

      Containment and Contentment are very wisely chosen words here.

      I love the last verse. It shares the responsibility of waiting--the way it should be. I endorse the message.

      This was my first romantic attempt.:-). Was a challenge too because of the topic and to make sure feels genuine and not over the board too.

      Thanks for appreciating.
