Love’s Promise

A promise of love

promise of love

 

As streaks of darkness weave slender pleats

around weary countenance of the day,

a soothing blanket of stillness descends

on the heat of aspirations and demands,

and i watch everything else sink into oblivion

except this moment enclosing you and me.

 

Let me drown for once in the depth of your eyes

which are the faithful mirrors of your thoughts,

to momentarily erase all the blemishes in me

and embody perfection in the light of your love,

while flirting endlessly with dreams and fantasies

getting drenched in these transient showers of joy.

 

Let us dissolve all the boundaries and demarking lines

as we travel to the zenith of our desires,

and own the eternity of both the oceans and skies

getting lost amidst the waves and stars,

you becoming the warmth of first ray of dawn,

and me, melting like the pristine snow.

 

In silence, let me listen to beats of your heart

brimming with unspoken vows of love,

before waking up together in the lap of a new day

to unlock all the promises it holds,

knowing that our tomorrows will always lie entwined,

our destinies, the same, for this lifetime.

    Anjana, so sensitively and beautifully written. Your words draw such wonderful pictures of love.
    Naturally and evocatively brought into play with all the nuances of love attached in such a brilliantly shining format. I loved this.

    I hoped to see poems of love from You here, so thank You so much for this one my dear, Your husband is the luckiest, the warmth You give so tenderly providing security and assurance is grand, to touch one in his core like this, and give him the ultimate of devotion and love, beyond where the feelings keep abounding gracefully is sheer bliss, yes he is the luckiest and most blessed to have You.
