My Scattered Thoughts ix

We could neither live nor die together
now we are neither alive nor dead
we could not cross the bounds of ceremonies
still the dear ties did not end
if not grown
the dark shadows of the long moments
of the sad evening
veiled the poles
the kids who could not trap the butterflies
got tired running in vain;
a few moments were left there
in your arrival
but the Ones who waited for ages
lost the game
and passed away;
God! bless me with an art
so that I can scribe a name in an invisible ink
deceiving all the probing eyes;
I wonder how they could touch the zenith
of the success in trials of the world
who could never ascend the heavens of hearts;
No reliance on the arms
that could not shed the weakness;
hey, you!
veil yourself so opaque
never letting others read the book of life
in your eyes, not even
the inscription of dedication! ! !

I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
