Set aflame by faith...!

Tearing down the dark hour of solitude,

The septet of your voice...!

Now an illusory rain of falling beads of snow,

Hopping around like the stars,

These white pearls in my night sky!


Witnessed the metamorphosis of your presence,

I believe in our unification,

A journey from illusion to reality,

A soul set aflame by faith,

Like the morning that sprouts,

As if the prime rose on my graveyard!


Piercing through the heart,

Whispers to me the spellbound trust,

You there like the wind,

Untouchable like the mist,

Dusky too; at time you are the light.

Rain drops to dew drops,

The autumn giggles on the grassy tips of my lawn,

Melting across the front yard of my little nest!


Like the commotion or solitary silence,

Across the limitless ocean of worries of the night,

You flow and perch_ed_ on the cord of my heart,

Voiceless..! ;thou embrace my shadow,

And bring set me on fire!


To give or to take away,

Some unfulfilled desire

Don't know or understand,

What could be your questions..!!!


You are a mystery,

Day by day from tiny cell to a full moon eclipse,

I change my clade,

From caterpillar to a butterfly!


Stay please dear always near,

Like an imagination,

A dream that may be forbidden,

And let fall heaven and hell to go united,

The wild cascade of mountainous love and lust,

Breaking all the ties!
