The Circle of Love

Written by: Tahera Mannan

He came and sat near me
And the evening sky turned pink
Nameless emotions happy and sad
Flowed thru the labyrinths of my veins
As our hearts thundered together
Strange are the aches of this heart
Without them, it won’t survive
Some shine like diamonds
While some are silent like pearls
As evening lifted its veil
Smoke rose from my heart
And passed thru his still form
My eyelids fluttered and blinked
The tears away
That stopped on his lashes
The circle of love was complete
