From A Lover To His Lover - Poem by Dave Tanwar

In the wilderness look at the ray of light
In the far distance, of new dawn when i can see the first sight
Overwhelm me in the embrace of thy frightful love
before fetters bound me in the horrid darkness of the night

certain constraints when parted me from thy longing soul
in the anguished fire of merciless time when my virtue extol
come & shall we touch this new dawn of hope?
be it the streak of insanity encompassing before quench anguish coal

Intoxication of thy love when will fibres in my every vein
when thy shall seek immense peace in my arms reign
thy bones in my grip when will melt & on thy kiss when my heart shudder
yet i smelled only paled rose, but now will scent thy breath again

Skies & the Earth when will ask 'Go ahead! why delay? '
Just one kiss and let it escape your lips once, O My doll of clay
before castled time is lost in soiree, part them quick to rest them soon
and let that moment of eternity last in infinity before time goes astray

douse down those flames of love and compassion with thy heavy sigh
take me beyond my conscience, my religion and beyond this sky
pagan i am for i accept only thy charm; eager to self-forget in thy arms
haste! hasten it quick. let not allow this fragile era to whisk by

i smell again from the air thy breath reeks of the eden's grass
undoubtedly i am enslaved by thy naive charm O enchanting lass
let this skin feel again the touch of thy silken silhouette arms
and encompass this moment of passion in my eyes to let it never pass.

    As the other poets mentioned it is an extremely passionate poem, and I find it has rich vivid imagery
    as well as rhyme. You have written it with longing and I can see you have put a lot of time in to writing it as well. 10 Karin Anderson (Report) Reply
