In pursuit of love

In pursuit of love I tried to run

from the ordinary,

the mundane,

the drab of life’s existence,

dressed in my new clothes.

I saw love lurking in the shadows

furtively blending into the dark.

He moved like a bandit,

crouched like a sly cat

too elusive for me to catch.

Then the madness consumed me,

wanting so badly

for you to love me madly.

Beyond the world of reality,

in quest of the love in my dreams.

There were streets filled with people,

stridently stepping  like me.

Turning dark corners,

ducking through  alleyways,

sniffing for their opiate,

Stealing others’ needles for their dreams.

When I woke up to the ordinary,

I cried into my pillow, disappointed

that this was just a bad dream.

So I take out a clean sheet of paper

and doodle throughout the day.

Maybe tomorrow and the day

after  – I’ll finally find you,

synchronistically searching for me,

The one who is not complete and whole

until he finds the other side of me.


Touch to touch

We touched.

Shadowing fingers,

Print traces,

Hidden faces,

Still haunted by the same dream

Of a lover’s touch.

Still longing

For love’s rainy days

With its taste

Consumed in haste

Of wave’s cascading surges

When your mind met mine

And a hostage was taken of time

Two souls falling to rise again

In new incarnations

I feel you still!

Your lips don’t conceal!

Aphrodites’ dream

Night deprives me of sleep

In daring dreams I keep

Reminiscing love’s fervor,

Ecstasy’s culminating murmur.

The first day of spring forever

A day to fondly remember

Moments suspended in time

In christenings deep and sublime

Head bowed down in holy devotions

Performing all rituals and motions

For deliverance of all rites of passage

In honor of love’s divine message

Breathing new fluttering fragrance

Lighting candles with ardent radiance

Two souls unite in sumptuous splendor

Hearts and minds in replete surrender

Lingering soft touches, and kisses

Fulfilling release of silent wishes

When sun’s new dawn arises

Lovers will reveal new disguises
