"I Am Not Yours"

I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candle lit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.

You love me, and I find you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.

Oh plunge me deep in love -- put out
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.

    Not as a candle lit in noon. the sentence illustrates the whole meaning of the poem and poet's feeling about the soul, spirit is well written in the poem.

  • Yogiraj Biplab (4/10/2014 2:20:00 AM)

    That is the soul in you, that you felt. What a sprit, the true sprit.

    Wonderful!
    Well written! Worthy to read!
    Able to change a reader's state of mind and emotions!

    Why do I get a sense that poet is talking more of spiritual love rather than worldly love? it's like I look at moon, knowing that I don't belong to it yet have longing for it.

  • Osama Waqar (4/10/2013 1:24:00 PM)

    Ah! : -) beautifully the pieces of these little words are wedged together.
