Her Visage

Her visage
like a reflection of love,
like peace and harmony
mixed in some stupor

And her countenance
radiating benign smiles
held in some magical spell
winding me
embracing me
arresting me
for this and many lives to come
and I, draped in her occult
surrendered in her love

Her Voice

When she speaks
with her melodious lilt
it seems as if
water flowing through a rill
on a faraway hill
crossing the boulder,
jumping the shrub,
like the sun
smiling through the mist
and when I hear your voice
I know our love will blossom soon
for it didn’t appear like a distant dream

Escape

Not because of the desirous look she possessed
or the suave she infused through her jones eyes
neither for the vigor she exudes
or for the heart longing to behold
what makes her aberrant from all
are the imperfections,
she proudly wore on her infectious smile
seeping through her enchanting visage

Once It Was Love

Her heart a miasma
of convoluted miscreant thoughts
reek oozing through every crevice
each possible cleft

Her demeanor
curtailed emotions
wrapped in the shroud
of a wrung soul

Her tears
dry on the arid countenance
with scars of lost battled
crisscrossing stories of the past

such was her stature
for her love had turned rogue

Resurrection

Have you noticed the burning wood
reducing to some blackened char
life vapored into thin air
with the signature of nothingness
all over it

Have you observed the empty nests
broken abode
scattered feathers
reminiscent of some past chirping
dissolved in a distant yore

You call it the end of a beautiful dream, write off with a heave
but you are wrong
for the char subsumed some burning coal
hidden in the disguise of an ebony night
and it resurrects
with a golden spark
and sure you are surprised now
and the deserted nests
are now the dwelling
of a bird called hope
