Molten fire

Waking the desire

Pelting rain

Wash the pain

The bloodlit paths on the plain

Dark to discover

 

Uncover

Dodging the bullets

Riddled booth

Cracked tooth

Fairies older than the truth

Fate is a lover

 

We hover

Between instances

Tidal wave

Roads to pave

We will put to rest the knave

None can seek cover

The sunflowers hope

That mornings will turn brighter

So they stay in sun

 

Sunflowers hasten

Their desire locked in black

Seeds that stay inside

 

Morning optimism

Meets midday where sun will stride

To point of sojourn

On a cold wintry night when the logs bade fire

The fog covered the moons white silvery faces

The dark shadows bowed slight from weight of desire

Like drunken addict swoons revealing his traces

 

The shadows followed light opposed to each aspire

Consume glory in spoons display your best laces

Centered twirl in the might of your glorious sire

Talk music draw the runes of transitions’ spaces

 

Dead grass called to crickets solemn dance to amaze

As the nightingales sang to dark secrets unwound

The woodlands bore thickets that circled in a maze

 

Thunder clapped with a bang lightning twirled all around

The surges broke pickets more than wood set ablaze

Knowing deadly bells rang as his face hit the ground

In waning moon I see the light

A jagged cut of warped desire

An end for burden of this fight

Letting go circumstances dire

 

Lost the colour of cheeks then flushed

I wish my face a lily white

Silence dwelling in bosom hushed

That mind may find renewed respite

 

Grant me courage that I may find

And travel into fields of lore

New peace for all to leave behind

That only soul has touched before

 

And as this frame I would discard

Our love eternal lives unmarred

Restless Times

The road knows two sides

Straight ahead

Wall awaits

Pacing left right and center

Footsteps a quagmire

 

Burnt desire

Parchment of memories

Coded red

Bloodied lips

Utter words of safe havens

Peacocks and ravens

 

Middle way

Lost in centuries

When dragons

Founded grace

The knights adopting their pace

Upheld the old code

 

Angels sway

To tunes of morrows

When sorrows

Overcome

The thunders of their low hum

As voices crackle

 

Knitted faith

Protects no longer

Knots untied

Unweaving

Widows and sons bereaving

The lost promises

 

Spear pierces

Its thrust solemn sigh

Exposed flank

Receiving

Like a fluttering dove weeps

Exhaling stillness

Caring much

Flames in heart a pyre

Soul outlet

Part regret

Equal portions of the two

The fear, the desire

 

Climb higher

Mountains may have peaks

Yet they stare

Into clouds

Solace a vision of shrouds

On heavenly frame

 

Call my name

In whirling waters

Abyss stares

Into skies

In between a string of lies

Man-made disasters

 

I fly free

The heart in throbbing

Holds the key

To kingdoms

There are castles in the air

Between mind and flair

 

Implosion

Internal order

Aligned streams

Path of dreams

The world less than what it seems

Dissolving matter

 

Rays scatter

Remnants of the fear

Scorching suns

Raise the bar

Feet walking on liquid tar

Roads of redemption

 

Losing touch

Recollections void

Nothingness

A slow spin

Neither lose nor ever win

Souls in between worlds

Your hand in mine strong

We walked into green pastures

Love was fruit and bloom

 

In rapture by shores

Flowing into the river

Each other haunting

 

Looking within you

Beloved in ecstasy

Into me you breathe

 

Your heady scent soared

Beyond headiest flowers

Sage and lily white

 

I held you trembling

Your arms around spelt powers

It surged through your frame

 

Gazing at your face

The smile of Love reaching look

That gushed loving Heart

 

Those sinuous lines

I marvel at their beauty

Decorating eyes

In Peace with the Flames

In Peace with the Flames

Seven days and nights

The task had me in waking

My feet bore no sole

.

I roamed wilderness

Through the thicket and the thorns

Gathering all fuel

.

Building the Bonfire

The twig like the log will serve

Awakening sparks

.

Rapture turned desire

Desire spent itself in Love

Making Light shadows

.

Human sacrifice

I threw myself into fires

Agni wept my Soul

.

As the fire soared

Hands extended in ashes

I dissolved in void

.

In Peace with the Flames

Bodiless and soul flying

I merged with the One

Into my slumbers

You seep forth your pressing urge

I greet you with wake

 

Summer bursts with scents

Fountains of joy flourish ripe

With seeds of your fruit

 

Immersed in beauty

Looking into you faceless

Your breath on my shape

 

You knead me desire

I need you infinitely

My soul for you calls

 

The ravens have tired

Bearing you on wings they sit

Guarding our twin souls

 

Morning pigeons coo

As you take a daily leave

Rising with the suns

Demanding mistress

I snatch more of your presence

During waking time

 

Our stolen moments

Leave the daytime unabashed

By our flaming nights

 

Every inch of me

Recognises your fragrance

While you elude me

 

Come into my Life

The nightingales are worn out

In nocturnal watch

 

Gift me your past aches

I will teach you present tense

Submerged by our touch

 

We will invent Time

Infinity will give in

To our radiant Love

Through the veil of dark despair

Through the veil of dark despair

7 September 2015

 veil huffingtonpost com taslookingglass com

Darkness will surround

Body that light diffuses

Compass in magnet

 

Matter enters void

As void will absorb matter

Each to its own end

 

Face kisses faceless

Fate embraces the fateless

Brings Faith to the faithless

 

Lost in night’s embrace

The willow will weep never

It finds peaceful sleep

 

Destruction in Love

Brings the sweetest mutation

Renewal all spells

 

Change is not for weak

Glory will find the strong Heart

That throbs with all Love

 veil greatmystery org

Change is for the meek

Humble is the one who seeks

Blessed shroud of Love

 

Be oak and be reed

Let every blow be blessing

Bend and stand tallest

 

The heart knows the truth

Though mind hums ever with bees

Deep inside you know

 

Dawn as you have learnt

Loves the darkest point of night

The peak of desire

 

Open your heart. Look!

Through the veil of dark despair

See the green morrows

 

A day will shine bright

As the night casts away veils

And sorrows scatter
