Two Hearts Beat as One

Absence and distance might have kept them,
And the aching of the arms to be warmed, together;
Unmindful of the prominent sun, each faced the other:
A lad and a lass; the sun, inbetween, stood saturninely,
A bit higher up, and stared them in the face;
The cloud backed away as two pairs of eyes
Rained tears affectionate, and de-escalated the hot protest of the sun;
And the sky caught a cold, earth absolute audience
Gave them: the vegetations stood transfixed by heavy empathy;
And all the birds, and all the beasts too!
Having bestirred the sea of memory, two stood, and tied
The feet of space, and knotted time in a protracted, noiseless gaze.
The world waxed weary, worn with eavesdropping and hearing naught!

They must have lost, in faroff calls and indoor musing and unkilled hunger,
Their voices: empty words blossomed on their lips.
Their eyes did voiced it all: they spoke a long while
Through the mouth of their eyes, words in two heart-shaped cases
Enclosed, which oozed mild flames from the middle;
Both cases penetrated their breastbones; the lad and the lass
Closer came, the sun refactory, stuck inbetween, got choked,
The day got eclipsed; A fire ignited in their hearts, when those words in the hearts
Of both alighted; pained sweetly, they leaned closer than ever,
Bosom to bosom, hand in hand; their burning hearts swung places -
His burnt in hers, hers in his; their face towards
Each other inclined, eyes blinded - blinded to many
A blameable infringement and the condition of things.
'For fondness nurtures no dubiety, nor can dubiety make fonder.'
When two go lips in lips, two hearts beat as one.

Poem of the Day


Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
