Joseph and Julekha


We were like ancient Egypt's Joseph and Julekha
You attracted me like Queen Cleopatra
But guilty feelings barred me again and again
From making love with you O my sweetheart

We were like Adam and Eve in paradise
But Satan has driven us out of there
By his black magical tricks

We were like two flowers on a branch of tree
A wild wind has blown us apart
From each other

We were like two birds singing a love song
A hunter has caught me by a horrible trap
Now he wants to sell me in the marketplace

Now we are like one soul having two bodies
Living in two separate worlds all day all night
With hopes and dreams like a dying supernova

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
