Innocent Joys - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

Looking at the shooting stars
I wished a kiss from you.
I have thirst for forbidden tastes.

Shall we hold hands and sit
on the shore of this rivulet
to dream of castles and fairies?

You are a scented flower;
Oh, how I love to kiss your petals.

I am a big bird
and I carry you on my wings
to the land of spring blossoms.

Shall I pour honey on your tongue
and may I lick it from you?

When you giggle
I shall laugh.
When you smile
shall I pinch your nose?

Come let us run on bare feet
on the green grass
racing each other.
I shall then allow you to win the race.

That will be my joy when I go to sleep;
You and me and You win always.

    very Imaginative. The simple thoughts of love finding simple joys! Yet creating a world of splendor and a pool of happiness. Is it a dream? is it real? is it a yearning? I love the last two lines. Peace and joy... (Report) Reply

    When the love blossom within two souls stream of joys sprouts. They forget days and nights. They forget the existence of world.Only they want to make their love more delightful. Under the direction of Radha Lord started dancing even he forgot he was the supreme body. Such is the Divine Love where creatures enjoy the gift of the Divine healing. A very soft sweet and heart soothing write. May God bless you to create more and more poems to express the glory of Creator. Thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply

    That will be my joy when I go to sleep;
    You and me and You win always. a wonderful portrayal of selfless love. it is egoless love. if all those who love achieve this mental state, it would have been very nice. thank you for this idea that you spread through your poem
