I Sing - Poem by Raj Thampi

'Why you never painted me? ' She asked
'I am afraid? ' I lowered my eyes
'Afraid of? '
'Painting something so perfect'

She smiled-so I wrote
'Wine your eyes
Drunken my moments
And I sing
Sing through the night
Holding you close
So close envied by the
Passing wind- without room

Long your fingers
Fire against my skin
And I sing
The song of togetherness
And when morning breaks up
From the tight hug of the night
I find your cheeks redder
Your eyes shimmering brighter
Than any sun ever seen

Ocean your eyes
And I am the waiting shores
For the waves of your gazes
Returning one after another
Only back to the depth of my eyes
And when my eyes rest
Within the embrace of your eyes
I sing
I sing not to fall asleep
Not to miss your eyes'
