To My Anonymous Lover - Poem by Valsa George

Somewhere in a strange land
An unknown heart throbs for me
Etching an amorous graffiti
On the blank walls of my mind
Where ever I am, I feel a pair of eyes
Fondly surveying and scanning me,
Speaking to me in silence
And keeps me awake in the night
I feel it all, I hear it all
Filling me with a sweet ache!

When night birds croon in the woods
And their mates answer the serenade,
When the moon begins her somnambulistic walk
And light beams percolate through pine needles,
When a hundred eyes open in the blue heights
To watch over the sleeping Earth,
When the whistle of a train is heard far away
And its music wanes into a monotonous drone,
When the rooster makes his first clarion call
Breaking the serene silence of the night,
When glow worms float in darkness
Like cruise ships over the sea,
When night gales shake the slender coniferous trees
And wind whistles among their leaves,
When sailing clouds blind the stars
And the night turns into an ebony shade,
When the opening Jasmine secretly exults
In her own exotic scent,

Sitting in my dimly lighted room
I draft this message of love
Pouring all my warmth into it
Thus emptying my love laden heart
That blazes with the fire of love
And encode it in cryptic script
To be mailed to you, my love!

Oh, it might take much time
Better it be a whispered endearment
Sent through this perfumed night breeze
That shall carry it from this end to that end

So kindly leave your window open!



Wish you all Poem Hunter Members A HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! !

    'When the moon begins her somnambulistic walk'

    Perhaps one of the cleverest line in poetry I had read in a long time! I just hope that her walk is not akin to Lady Macbeth's! ;) But maybe it should be, she had kept many a lovers awake at night..

    Thank you very much for your beautiful poem that is filled with such vivid imagery that stimulates all senses of the reader...

    Let the love remain as reality
    it is certainly blessings from an almighty
    no matter whom you may chose
    but honest problem really pose?
