My Ode To Your Love - Poem by Kamaru Zzaman

The sky never appears big
When you leave my love behind my back
You rest drowned as ever in your empty world
Your footsteps fumble in all corners
Your veiled wisdom never stokes fire
Shallow feelings surround your universe
As though you have shed blood in soliloquy
Not to regain the days and nights gone by
Dewdrops snatch your little world
When I retreat back to my isles of forlorn hope.

I have built a nest for you
I have sung solemnly at your withdrawing shadows
You only choose to be the empress of the lost throne
Stormy petrel never dares to blow his conch
When mysteries pile on mysteries on a devil's eyebrows
You seem to have forgotten the untold fairy tales
You seem to have dared to cross swords with the winds
Nothing has betrayed your somnambulist dreams
The dreams that have closed the walls on you.

I will wait for the eternity to unveil your charm
That charm will demystify your soul's silence
My love will never dethrone your empire of violence
If you ever solemnly kiss the dust of my pains.

Where Shall I go? Where will you go?
Where is the space to open up for vastness?
It is love that has carried you along
It is love that will float you back to cosmic rhythm
Love has blossomed in thousand flowers in my nest
If you swallow the nectar of life and death
What can beat you in your desires for love?
Lovelorn hearts can battle in warring togetherness
Togetherness is whispering in all fleeting moments
Shadows of light has overcast the long lost darkness
And it is you who can breathe solace into eternity.
