Meera - Poem by Suzanne Hayasaki

Come to me under cover of night.
Reveal to me your tender form.
Take me in your eternal embrace
To release me from my living chains.

Come to me in my melodies.
Let your flute play in my heart.
Sing me a song only I can hear
And I will render it in mere words.

Come to me in my trance.
Make me dance.
Make me spin.
Grant me the bliss
Where devotion ends
And union begins.

If you will not come to me
In the privacy of the night
In the secrecy of my soul
Then I must go down each road
Until one ends in you.

Let my in-laws plot.
Let them poison.
Let them gossip.
I am free
In my slavery
To you.
