Flicker Of Love
Losing the belonging in debris of broken heart
to the silent shore of sorrow I had sauntered.
My emotions swirled like dislodged moist sands
in the tide of remote time when you were mine.
On the rolling sea made of billion drops of tear
descended somber shadow of night’s slate sky,
split unseen by the flying flash of a shooting star,
dissolving like memory on the horizon of oblivion.
Transient flame of trajectory of consumed desire
furrowed in my mind a blazing trail of yearning,
that I wished I could follow with the shooting star,
even if it was transitory like the flicker of my love.
I slept on the desolate edge of the lonely night,
you became in my dreaming sky a shining star,
briefly sparkling so far away, yet adoringly so near,
but you disappeared, for I didn’t dream enough.
