The Longing To Such A Desire - Poem by Lady Lilith
I steel words, ...all I ever knew...
If I would dare... To tell you...
Thou art so fair of outward view...
With thy dark hair, thy honey skin,
thine eyes of hazel hue...
Of this desire I never knew,
Until thou smiled upon me...
Then I saw that thine eyes are bright,
a well of love, a spring of light,
and thy very frowns are fairer far,
than smiles of other princes are...
Please smile at me...
I cannot look back at thee...
and every minute that I had not,
Before this my forlorn hart was cold,
But thou makes solid iron in fluid gold.
Please see me...
Because I could not have told,
to my surprise,
I myself cease not to behold
and gasp upon the light in thine eyes.
Please hear me...
I cannot hear thee across all noise
and any minute without thy voice
is an empty echo.
Please feel me...
Across all seasons
Any minute I did not feel thy warmth
is like a cold dark winter
Please embrace me...
Across all frontiers
I cannot reach thee
Every minute I do not feel thy skin
is so lonely
and a waste of my time
Please touch me...
Across all time
Every minute I had not touched thee is otherwise lost forever!
Please come to me...
in this life or the paralel
or in my dreams..
But than finaly... kiss me, with thine perfect lips that cannot taste the sweetness of my love, since thou art at such a distance.
Let the wind bring the touch of thine lips to me...
Please kiss me, I begg thee with my weak hart, with my odd soul, please kiss me!
Kiss me and I shall kiss thee back,
so that thou might know
the flavour of that desire.
