LOVE’S MYSTIC TAPESTRY…
As silky seconds sublimely ooze out
through the pores of night’s mystic branches,
silvery moonbeams gliding through the lace curtains
morph as ephemeral rivulets on marble floors,
and I so drunk on the wine of your admiration
become a glint wholly enslaved to your eyes.
Together, let us face the daunting mirrors of truth
hanging forebodingly over love’s verdant shade,
and make a vow to compliment each other’s flaws
while accepting and celebrating our uniqueness,
as we decide not to peruse the elusive mirages of perfection
which keep taunting us from afar.
At times of need, I will be your selfless candle
continually giving you my love’s gentle glow,
as we walk together through life’s winding paths
paved with concealed treasures and hurdles,
where I will melt for you till my very last breath
while your hands lovingly shield me from storms.
Merrily, a fire crackles in the distant corner
its flames making entwining shadows on walls,
as your endearing words fall as virgin raindrops
in the unaddressed depths of my parched soul,
while a passion’s chariot takes us to far away places
where slices of paradise become one with this earth.
Fireflies of imaginations dance around love’s lake
as we marvel at these lanterns of new hopes,
and tomorrows and yesterdays fade from our minds
as we become ecstatic captives of these moments,
adding shimmering jewels to the ivory box of memories
to fondly hold and reminisce in our twilight years.
Yonder, a cluster of stars unblinkingly stay guard
to our love’s treasured tapestry,
while tiny bundles of clouds proudly float by
as if puffed up with love’s myriad mysteries,
as we begin to percieve everything in brighter hues
both in the kingdoms of dreams and realities.
