Oh My Jasmine Don’t Hurt Me! - Poem by venkatesh nagaraj

Oh my Jasmine don’t hurt me!


On every full moon,
The jasmine glow by the moonlight
And her memories glow my sense
Having sleepless nights
Thinking of her.

On every full moon,
As jasmine glow by the moonlight
Her sweet memories are glowing
my sense gifting the sleep ness nights
thinking of her.

As the fragrance of night nightingale spread
Attracting reptiles make
Mind insecure and selfish
Thinking of her.

Everyday sunrises and nightfall’s,
Moon goes red and white.
I gather my courage to explain
My feelings to her but she neglects me.

As the niligiris karangie bloom once in
every twelve years and stays for four moons
her memories are to stay for ever.

Everyday my foolish mind thinking of her
Lost on this lonely planet, has made be mad
As petunia looks brilliant from far,
I can’t understand her deepest mind!

At every Sun rise,
Mind in this hatred and selfish world
With never ending struggle has started to kill me.
I carry my jasmine’s sweet smile and killing
Looks and wait for her love.

As every jasmine and karangie
Die one or the other day.
My poems and feelings live
Are For her for ever.

Oh my jasmine,
After every full moon is the darkness
And jasmine wait for full moon.
Her moon light memories are my radiant
Strength to fight the darkness.

I write the last poem
As she neglects me once again
But my jasmine memories hunt me.
And gives strength to fight this world

Oh my jasmine..Oh my karangie
Don’t hunt me

End or Start

karangie ia a nilgiris orchid, which blooms once in every 12 years
