Tamara The Sequel

The dried leaves cripple, lifeless,
Stomped underneath his restless feet
Open the path to the falling waters
Visible through naked eyes,
So arrogant
Spread its wings, like Garuda
Tons of sounds, fall into
The river, where Tamara unleashes her voluptuous
Flesh, for the Sun to glimpse with a smile

Her mountainous breasts, tremor
Whenever it touch the cold water
Breathlessness has captured the Prince
Amid the brisk walk he endures
To find the fortress that seals thousands
Of secrets, concealing her well kept beauty

He looks up to the blue sky
Whispers to scores of Hummingbirds
“Hey buddies, lead me to the Princess,
And I’ll make you, a Kingdom”
The Hummingbirds unhesitant
Lead him to the Hanging Garden of Babylon
Like walking into a dream that never ends
Pink Primrose, Mountain Laurel, Hellebores,
Hydrangea, Persimmon and Glory Lily
Her smell is like those flowers

The Hummingbirds sing to him
“Tamara wants you to scratch her back,
Scratch her back, scratch her back,
And she’ll scratch yours”
With laughter that drums up
His heart beat, Prince Charming
Runs his way through the enchanting waters
Naked, he kisses Princess Tamara, who is
Forever more, wants to die in his arms

Heavy tears, dropp from the sky above
Flooding the two souls, vanish
Into ecstasy,
A lifetime gift
They are the priceless gems
Almandine Garnet, Chrome Tourmaline,
Larimar, Peridot, Rhodochrosite
They are those gems

Morning dews sizzle, panoramically
As the couple, dance
In the bed of Roses
Where sigh and moan
Attunes, without hindrance
Their breaths perspire profusely
Legs tremble like tambourine
The bed reads maximum Richter scale
They say love is a many splendid things
They are history

    Hello, no wonder you will really appreciate my poem Making Love'. And have you read my Illicit Love.Beware? Romance? Almost all my poems expressing passion, runs like yours. Maybe we have the same waves of poetry.

    This poem of yours express too much love, aside from desire, which was very visually seen by the creative minds. if you are the character of the prince charming, your love is great, full of passion... Good interpretation.. Very well written!

    Eroticism is rarely done justice, even with as many plaintiff words one might carry for their defense. However, you have by far come closer to reeling in the most bountiful and tremendous joys a poet can ever have....
    Seeing his work ripple through others as it does you.

    Lovely little piece, it sent ripples quite marvelously.

    Again in this stanza

    Her mountainous breasts, tremor
    Whenever it touch the cold water
    Breathlessness has captured the Prince
    Amid the brisk walk he endures
    To find the fortress that seals thousands
    Of secrets, concealing her well kept beauty


    At start it was talking about he,
    In this stanza a little bit of she then the continuity or Link was broken when all of a sudden it talked again about he....

    Cheers.

    This poem needs music. It's an Aria.
    And History is good. A memory is all one needs.

    i enjoyed 'Mayati' so i had to read the sequel; although it starts again like the first with the lifeless; here again is celebrated life and passion.

    hmm..i seriusly dont know what to post here... anyway
    U n ur princes....seems an ideal couple.... that what i have perceived after reading both of your poem.... but you know its not practical at all.. according to me... its sort of a fantasy world... you are talking abt...

    Love, lust, and marriage go hand in hand. Between love and lust, neither is greater than the other. And that is my point: love endears while lust desires. Both love and lust must be given their due. Love is a kind and respectful motion that holds someone gently in our hearts. Lust is full of passion and desire, even covetousness that breeds a need to physically be with the other person. A marriage can't endure without both emotions present.

    After marriage it is generally observed that the bond between the individuals strengthen and grown stronger as time goes by. Once when individuals start spending time together, they also understand each other's need and being more committed to each other's feeling and sentiments.


    Love gets enamored in commitment after marriage. It also gets interwoven with trust and empathy and once this begins to happen then true love begins to grown in your relationship. It is then that you begin to gradually make sense of your relationship and figure out that you want to be together forever.


    On the other hand, it is utterly false that love results from marriage. On rare occasions one does hear of a miraculous case of a married couple falling in love after marriage, but on close examination it will be found that it is a mere adjustment to the inevitable. Certainly the growing-used to each other is far away from the spontaneity, the intensity, and beauty of love, without which the intimacy of marriage must prove degrading to both the woman and the man.


    Marriage and love have nothing in common; they are as far apart as the poles.. No doubt some marriages have been the result of love. Not, however, because love could assert itself only in marriage; much rather is it because few people can completely outgrow a convention.


    But loving a person, actually knowing all their faults, having sought out and being fully aware of everything that makes up their inner person, knowing the good and the bad, and still choosing to be with them – that’s love. That’s what you must have in order to experience the feeling of being one. And only when you can both love and be ‘in love’ with another human being can you ever know and feel what you were taught love was supposed to feel like in fairy tales…

    Love and lust are totally opposite of each other... Love is unconditional and has everyone's best interest in mind and lust is based off of selfishness and doesn't care who gets hurt to get what it wants... Lust destroys the individual, and doesn't strengthen self control.


    I am one of the most rational people I know. I never ascribed to the silly notions of romantic love or being swept off my feet. I always figured that love, true love, whatever that is, was practical – a giving of oneself, a continual sacrificing of one’s own needs stability, caring, contentment. I assumed feelings were involved in there somewhere, but I never gave them much thought - after all, weren’t those supposed romantic feelings just a by-product of a good, stable, trusting relationship? ...


    You got to understand this…..first…


    A good attempt……

    regards
    Marrium Tahir
