A Lamp In Us! - Poem by Veeraiyah Subbulakshmi

The small lamp commenced to burn,
When two bodies united as one,
From the day one until the day yet to know,
The lamp burns slowly in the spirit of ions.

Keeping the lamp safe from rough climes,
Protecting the yarn from the heavy dye,
Nourishing the lamp with fuels approved,
The lamp may burn quietly as expected.

we let it burn with bigger flame,
By adding steroidal fuels and nocturnal fun,
we let the motor to run in higher speed,
by pressing the temptation to accelerate.

The lamp may start to play snake and ladder,
By climbing up and down at the dice of illnesses,
Sometimes gets overheated to jam up the motor,
Hold your lamp lovingly for it to glow pleasantly.

    lamplight l believe that is what it used to be called.
    The soulspark inside each of us while we live.
    when it dissipates, it leaves for evermore
    protect it from errant winds and it twinkles
    shelter it from doucing rain and it sparkles
    fuel it with god's grace and it will aura
    clothe it in love and it burns brigther
