K I S S - Poem by Nibedita Deb

Superpose your silk eye-lashes in anticipation
And here as I bestow a new world upon your lips
Feel the shredded brush of lip-lines smudging & reshaping
Into newer landscapes

Here we lie feigning repose to the reposing world
While all that's within us shakes and shivers in wonderful wakefulness
Till all the flowers that constitute the delicate sculpture of your face
Slowly melt and dissolve into dreamland

Till blue angels of the night guard the glory of this moment
Till my tired fingers slip your arms and the Goddess of sleep leads me away
Till the magic whisperings of night strive to equal the music of your breath
Till music and poetry all give way to the threshold of eternity.
