'When Love Strikes' - Poem by Farah Ilyas
On the sea shores…
looking forward to sail on more
Our body wrapped by moonlight, rocked
like tidal waves. Rushes gloominess, up and down…..
Hushed these united souls? ? ?
Under the blue sky…
no fear of a prying eye….
In the assembly of stars…
covers the journey of soul in our hearts.
Migrating from a beat to another
indulge in one another’s eye….
from love and care not to shy…
Save that moment in a box, like pirate’s trove…
As possessions packed by a traveler before we go….
We will spend life together, you say
And I... smile
like after rain the rainbow plays with sun rays
As they hit me so warmly
If that moment I blubber with joy…..
Pearls fall on my cheeks, wiped by you,
And I see you...crying too...
You kiss my lips…
I shudder to savor and greedily sip…
Come back o’ girl to reality…..
love isn’t eternal on a chariot of charity…….
Do not mingle your dreams with mine…
Written in sin, oh an unforgivable crime.
What should a man do with his woe?
if healer of your distress become a cruel foe…?
But when love calls silently
the heart still wants more
