A Poem In Visible Darkness - Poem by indira babbellapati

Your love stirs my body
Tender-leaf-body nods
To the balmy sensuous breath
Blown on the nape
In this wilderness I’m enclosed in
I searched for your heart beat
There’s hidden
Your touch
Your love
The colour of earth under my feet
Turned from brown to red;
I was blushing in anticipation
I quickly looked around for a niche
Where we might fold into each other
Where a bird didn’t quiver
Where a leaf didn’t stir
Where on the sky the last star too
Slipped into sleep…

There there I wish to remain
Under such slumbering sky
On the red earth…

My love,
Let me barter my love
For your touch
In that visible darkness!
