Effulgence Of Love Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana


I softly stroked
My palms
Down your moist hemispheres
And gently lifted your chin
With the distal pillows
Of my digits

Your visage
Was like a shriveled hibiscus
Parched by the very same sun
That orchestrated
Satiny petals of your dazzling corolla
To yield to a midsummer smile

For love dazzles you
And bedazzles you
Until her effulgence imprisons you
To an infinite darkness
As sentience bewitches your world
Only for your soles to tread
On a minefield of sorrow

For fictitious love
Handicaps you
Until your heart finds
Her white cane
A harbor that will hold you
Until her radiating warmth
Dissolves every morsel
Of your stitched eye lids

To set you free
To reorient your gaze back
To the grandiose sun
Through a pane
Of tinted glass

For once bitten
Is twice Shy
