Saved from fetters

among all the fishes in the ocean
you caught my attention
my heart fell at the fountain of existence
where free love flows
thus was caught and marooned 
at the bottom of a river of love
where there are many fettered souls.

you swam by in fish-mother-figure
your face, a personification of uniqueness,
with a diamondiferous eyes, burned fires
into the shackles that bound my soul
thus freedom fell upon my soul.

at the touch of your brooding love
every strand of hair on my body became a nightingale
chants of excitement flow down my spine
cold sweat watered down my frisky body
my fogeyish heart stood defrosted in your hot presence
thus bristling with unendurable desires.

I saw, the stars shining in your eyes,
the full moon illuminating on your head,
and your head surrounded with halo
all left me moonstruck that I quake 
like I suddenly came back from the dreamland 
when your breath stroke with my breath,
a river of air that meant the world to me,
in the same breath, brought me ashore.
