Sue My Heart

Enlarge poem

Beneath the somber deeds of thought
I obstinate my self and vend my heart
Before my hands reached to you in the night to call
My eyes saw thy serene joy emptying my soul
My ears heard thy sweet judgment provoking the pieces of my heart….unbending
My knees felt the long distance while the grievous justice remains forgotten
And I sat
Am I to thee a fortunate lover?
Though I was caught by love and I went undercover

Beneath the moment of being a lad
I betrayed life that has never been planned
I searched my heart and found nothing to remember
Shall I summon my self to thee and thrice times must I beseech or surrender

Beneath the somber deeds of thought
I obstinate my self and vend my heart
Beneath the moment of being a lad
I betrayed life that has never been planed
And there I was….broken hearted, longing to search for thee along the river Nile
But you sued my heart with thy wistful smile

Midnight Walks

In the darkest hours
of those murky nights
beyond cold limits
in the thirst waves
of longing thoughts

At pensive fiery hours
of empty landings sight
there is a black shadow
under the harmony voice
of hungry restless dead

The tranquility shadowy
aspiring in my heart hath
led away to endless dark
avenue bled midnight walks

O sad Moon erase darkness
my soul preserves outshines
in my dreams I see myself
in the range of my belonging
faith bubbles soothing hell

Souls beseeching forgiveness,
pleading for mercy, I mottling
pale yet stood motionless forth,
and forth I resolution walked,

My emptiness hunting death depart
the stillness of empty land still
stretches and moonlit grows,
view to my soul darkened heavens
light form dimensions skips across.

If these yearning avenues
bind those numb souls
directionless Monstrosities…

Years of my reminiscences
brightened this moment agonies;
if darkness remain and conceal
lost thoughts of my memories;

And if I lapsed dreaming
again death parting my soul
beyond longing cold days hope
forever more saunter must I athwart

Erstwhile midnight ago
the vanishing hours
of my presence enlightened
my shadow cast souls

How tenderly I live on earth
I wilting how decently I crave
future, how adherence lingers

within me as if I am
to die I was expiring.

Still for the last time,
for only once, death
and I may sink together
in my moon cast dreams.

In the journey
through those avenues
of midnight walks.
