Searching for your Abode…
SEARCHING FOR YOUR ABODE………
I have traversed the tumultuous waves of illusions
to reach this narrow,demarking line,
where i see rolling valleys of life on one side
and the silent abyss of death on the other,
as my befuddled mind desperately tries to fathom
the path i should take to reach your abode.
Without you, all seasons have lost their brilliance
and time no longer boasts its significance,
as each nebulous dawn keeps wilfully mirroring
the ebony darkness of forlorn nights,
where alluring dreams ultimately fade into nothingness
reflecting the stark reality in which i reside.
Without you, this body is just a rotting prison
where my writhing soul is sentenced to life,
my youth so stripped of all worldly desires
wholly acknowledges that you are my only respite,
while the stream of tears springing from our separation ‘s ache
remains as the only cue that i am still alive.
Just as a garden’s wilted bloom keeps longing
for the warm embrace of celestial moon,
i, an ordinary mortal, dwelling on this earth
dare to pine for you, the supreme divine,
and when i stand at this pinnacle of love and devotion
i sense that my prayers would be answered very soon.
Till then, i will roam the deserted streets of life
singing loudly the hymns of your praise,
i will dance gaily as if i am hearing
the enchanting notes of your flute,
and build an ornate temple for you in my heart
where i will place myself as the pious offering.
