Bliss Of Love


Like a bee celebrating its harvest,

Or a a butterfly perched on a flower,

This is the feeling of Love…


Because I am the song of longing and the sunbird,

I shorten the distances

And fill the spaces with love and poetry…


Because I am a child of life and the tree of love,

I soar into the sky of the soul

Dripping with water of longing..

And I write with my heart…

I voluntarily vowed myself to Love…


So tell me poetry

How do the heartbeats smile!

How do passions ignite in the arms of the beloved?

I am a daughter of the sun

My soul blossomed because of love,

On the lines are the yearning of my voice,

And the night is a cup of passion stretching my longing…


Why Do I Love You?


There are seven seas and an ocean between us

And ninety nine thousand mountains and a lake.

There is more than a street, a garden, an airport and a sky.

And there you are, where you live,

I don’t know how long is the distance between us

But I know that I love you

And how to love you

But I don’t know why I love you…

I don’t know how love is born inside the heart

And how it breaks into the world of the heart and all its details

Or how it smiles in my blood and my arteries,

whenever your black eyes few and hovered over my face.

Since your love entered and hurt my heart

I love you more than you do

And more than you can imagine

More than what poets imagine!

More than what goes on in the orbits

And more than what happens when night and day alternate.

I love you, a word I don’t understand how it gets born on the lips and tickles the ribs,

I don’t understand all these amazing expressions that colour my face, when I leave myself in your arms,

Or when you dole out your sunshine smile in front of me,

Then my heart spurts like a sweet fountain.

I don’t know or understand why my heart chose you over other men,

And why all this love and this longing are for you alone

But all I know is that

I Love You…


Oh My Love!!


Good evening oh you!!

Oh man, never left my face expressions

Oh lover of love

in my pulse

Oh different man in all the faces

In letters I wrote and others I did not write

In feelings

Brewed in my soul

How do I draw you?

And you are

A sigh in my breath

And a delicious silence

Venturing into myself

Echoing your madness,

Your hallucinations,

And the fires of your being

When my lips tremble

Then settle down

In your restless ribs

And restless arms

Tell me!

How do I draw you?

And how to read your facial expressions?

When you do not know

That my time stops

And my heart hurts

When your eyes wander

In every shivering emotion

From my trembling soul…
