Confessions Of Krishna - 6

You thought I was conquering the world
And you believed I was ruling it
But I was wandering in this chaotic world
In search of my only truth - YOU

But you could not realise it
You could not feel my mind
That is the way the whole world is moulded
To believe men as cold hearted

But you must try to believe the truth
That I am as soft as the butter
With which we played a lot in our child hood
By spreading it on our faces

My heart is as tender as the 'Tulasi' garland
Which you knotted with your soft fingers
And garlanded me with your sublime prayers
With your heart and soul so serene

I am still locked in the dungeon in your empire of love
And I pray you to release me
Crown me with your diamond studded heart
And make me your own king

I know when you do so
All my sins will be washed away
By the purity of your loving blood
Which will tranqulise me to feel your divine love

And let me sleep in that ecstatic trance
In your feathery lap with my weary heart
Till my soul rest in peace
Until we have our all new rebirth

(This is an imaginary poem written as narrated by God Krishna to his childhood love Radha, to show how sublime and deep his love was.)

Tulasi- Ocimum sanctum. An aromatic herbal plant used for holy prayers.
Tulasi, which is Sanskrit for the 'incomparable one', is worshiped throughout India, most often regarded as a consort of Vishnu in the form of Mahalakshmi.
There are two types of Tulasi worshiped in Hinduism -'Rama Tulasi' has light green leaves and is larger in size; 'Krishna Tulasi' has dark green leaves and is important for the worship of Vishnu.

    Absolutely beautiful! You know just how meaningful the 'krishna and Radha' story is and that I cannot wait for the next installment. Don't think I'll forget that you mentioned awhile back you had many already penned!
    I feel so bonded to these poems and to Krishna and Radha. Every night star, that is named shines and glitters, senses overwhelm, overflow, completely fill such that my cup runneth over like the night's rain in the emerald greens of a forest. Bravo! 'In search of my only truth - YOU', my favorite line in this poem! (Report) Reply

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
