Why do we love
The wrong one

How long does it take
To learn that the sun
Shines in the eyes
Of the unexpected

No matter how much we cry
This will not bring the love
Of someone who does not
Love in return

Even with yearning to die

Wait for the light
Of the right one

The fire that burns
In a destiny
Swollen with opportunity
Arrives without force
Running a course
Just for you

Friendship will
Promise this

Believing beyond
Where this is
Reigns a generous
Wind carried off
With a kiss
To one day

And remind you

When the time to recall
Of what once did befall
A true reason for love
Will enthrall you

In Our Blood

Fall into an altered state
Golden hat for two
Crackling embers of a fire
If I composed a letter today
I would write one out
And send it off to you
Intention in every stroke
Every overcurve rising with my
Innermost thoughts
Every descender every slant
A heartfelt manuscript
Even the ink would be blessed
But I don’t know your address
I’m not sure where you reside
I watch the things you scribe
From a distance
Like watching the geese
Disappear in the mist
Of the morning fog
Your words gather in
Flocks of love
This way and that way
I am thunderstruck
Before the storm
The stove is warm
Inside my eyes
As I watch you prepare
A feast for the heart
Words the sweet divine
Passes through you
I see you too
Have the Gods in your blood
Creation is love
Love is divine
What is it like
To be with you?

The space between us
Is in particularly
Would it be a mouthful
If we were together?
It doesn’t really matter
I don’t know where you dwell
Perhaps it’s the in the sky
Underneath a shell
Somewhere in the sea
Or on an island waiting
For a letter just
From me

Desi Love

A humble prince
A gorgeous spirit
A sovereign raajakumaar man
With open arms
A loving smile
Soft spoken words
A soul to play
Like a guitar

Where will one hand
Find the other
Upon which beach
Will our feet walk
Is there a place
Within the universe
For us to share
One heart?

I have a dream
In which you come
Into the garden
Where I write
I have a wish
In which you grant
When you will visit me
One night

I tell the moon about
My dreams
And the moon then
Tells the sun
Look in the rays of light
The tears of Surya
Raining down
With love

Although I am here
And you are living
Where you are
I know our ishq
I know our prem
Still shines between us
In the stars

Take my hand
And walk with me
From here into

Across the petals
Of our souls
Above the Universe

Our names embedded
In the stars
Footsteps in sands
All over Mars

And volcanos meet
Rising chemistry

One hundred and
Eighty three moons believe
In our

Comets bolt
In yellow gold
Sanskrit scribed
In tales of old

Mutual heat
In flames between
The color of red
That cherries dream

Lightning dances
At our feet
Black holes
Form exhibiting

The gravity
Our love defies
Angels will sing
Demons will cry

Walk with me
Through horizons light
Where morning makes love
To the night

Love Came to Me

Love came to me
It was as sweet a scent
I remember and recall
From long long time ago

When it arrived
It offered nothing but itself
Which for as long as
It would choose to stay
Was more than enough time

Surprise took me by my breath
Away love came to me
And with no warning
Dressed in arms so graciously

Love’s embrace swept in
Then left again

Love for Self

If ever I have seen
With the intensity of eyes
It is now

If ever I have
Been aware
It is now

I couldn’t ask for
A better place to be

The ambience
The dress
The success of nothing less
Than pure love for the self

More room for loving
That which draws

Even in dark paths

The sleeves
Slip up around
The angry bark
Of bitter delight

The leaves
Into the blue

A freedom tonic

As I blend so well
With tree

As we bend eternally
Environment exists
When we become it

Endless chance
And all that we create
Will now succumb it

Scratch the surface
Peel the tape
Reveal this timeless
Warm embrace
Ages will spurn
Our cosmic light
Lust after dust
Saturns return

Born in an
Empathetic sky
Heartaches unwind
Rings undefined
How perfect harmonies

Crescent by Crescent
Charm by charm
A sudden haze
A new moon phase
A pounding deep space

What love can do
What magnitude
Uncertain chains
Release the

Naked and hot
Look how we swarm
Comet eclipse
New planets form

Above the Earth
Twisting in bliss
A sensual amber

Beyond the broken words unspoken
Are the treasures on the pages
Of my soul and flourishing love
That rages underneath

Unending is the saturation
The dedication
To the promise
Of what love
Can seep so deeply
In between
From up above
Bequeath the seam
And all around

The ancient text
Beneath my chest
Beats in complimentary
View of you

In words that pass
At curving tips
Edge of my lips
Are dialects of
Shattered panes
That transform light
Into multi-colored
Stained refrains

Our path will empty
At the waters mouth
Where it flows into the ocean
Upon our citadel
Soaked in memories
A small village of emotions
We still have yet
To manifest
