Come hail, come storm
I can brave it all,
And yet afloat you remain
Among the clouds…
Lonesome star…
My distant thought of every hour,
I wait in knowingness,
And yet I wonder…
Must I?
Grasslands of hope,
And a burgeoning of emotion
Like pollens in a tuberose,
I feel this cluster of restlessness,
Laying seige on my most tranquil days
Am I open to the barley charms
Of a marigold summer
spent noisily in your arms?
And harshly though,
I must say “no”
For my heart has another side
It waits to explore.
One-sided star
Stay afar
I don’t give my arms for alms
I shall pick up the roadside poppies,
To drug my charitable side,
Just this while…
As the rains bring new rivers to life
Sorrowless traveller
I am a stringless bird
The darkest tunnels of faith
Have helped me cast away my pain
I may seem shallow
I shall accept your judgement
as my own,
In exchange for my quiet solitude,
As shivering as the waves
A sea of depth under its mothering veil
Happy, mazy star
Chasing my dreams
Like a cat undoing the woollen ball
Giggling in your ever-frothy state
Violets huddled like iridescent blues…
Under your whispering hair,
Your eyes teasing the wisdom in mine,
Your heart emptied of old ties
Inspiring me to find my vulnerable sides
Let’s swiftly plunge in this newfound love
Before my stars turn into dust.
