Desires - Poem by ANJALI KAKATI

As darkness shrouds
The night sky,
The moon creeps in
Into the privacy
Of my room.

tossing on the ambers
Of my melancholy,
You invade,
Tight lipped,
Entangled in my dreams.

Holding your hand
I escape,
The cages.
Breaking all chains
I flee,
to tread the unknown
Forbidden path of glee.

your gaze holds mine.
Your look,
Seeking my soul out of me.
Your taste,
A bitter sweet
In my mouth.
Your hands
bruising me
a little Blue
a little black.

Where thuds of your heart
Lie close,
Music to my ears.
And together we
into the swollen floods
of desires
the uniqueness of

The flat of your palm
Still tracing,
Lingering with glee.

The moon
Still shamelessly
The privacy of my room.
Only its fire everywhere
But the smoke
No where to see.
