Saint Valentine Provokes - Poem by Vadakkumpurath Ramesan

She hugged him
And she kissed him
As if in a madness
But that didn't invoke
Anything in his heart
As he was lost in her love!
He was mad as a poet
And lost fear or shame
As love intoxicated him
At the heights of insanity!
He felt the whole universe
Reducing to her eyes
Her eyes enlarging to universe
As the dew conceive the whole sky
As the flower imbibe the spring!
At times he was to embrace
The black-clad death for love
At times he was logical
That life has to go on!
At times he was enthused
By the sacrifices of lovers
Who embraced death
And flown to heavens
To become stars in the galaxy.
At times she lamented
To the nights, the stars and moon
And the snowy winter
Dropping tear-drops of love
At times she thought
Of the fate of valentine
The priest of love and sacrifice
In whom nobody lived with love.
Yet he lived for the love
The absolute truth of supreme soul!
His sacrifice did auger well
As he was made a saint
And the God of love!
She in moments of love
Turned insane felt
To became a saint of love
To be canonized by lovers
Of the world after beatification
And jumped from the steep
Mountain top to the blue green
Ravines of the black death!
And she became a saint
Leaving him wander in madness!

    Nicely written poem about Valentine matter is interesting to read from the beginning to the end! Love, sacrifice and death for the sake of union of two hearts makes it is very important in human life! Indeed an important festival to celebrate for the sake of humanism thriving in the world full of hatred, problems and sufferings endless! (Report) Reply
