'When Love Strikes'

On the sea shores…
looking forward to sail on more

Our body wrapped by moonlight, rocked
like tidal waves. Rushes gloominess, up and down…..
Hushed these united souls? ? ?
Under the blue sky…
no fear of a prying eye….

In the assembly of stars…
covers the journey of soul in our hearts.
Migrating from a beat to another
indulge in one another’s eye….
from love and care not to shy…

Save that moment in a box, like pirate’s trove…
As possessions packed by a traveler before we go….
We will spend life together, you say
And I... smile
like after rain the rainbow plays with sun rays

As they hit me so warmly
If that moment I blubber with joy…..
Pearls fall on my cheeks, wiped by you,
And I see you...crying too...

You kiss my lips…
I shudder to savor and greedily sip…
Come back o’ girl to reality…..
love isn’t eternal on a chariot of charity…….

Do not mingle your dreams with mine…
Written in sin, oh an unforgivable crime.

What should a man do with his woe?
if healer of your distress become a cruel foe…?
But when love calls silently
the heart still wants more
More….yes more!

    Beautiful work! I apologize for not reading this till now despite your respectable request long ago.....but this truly is wonderful! ! Deep emotions, vivid descriptions, like the scenes are flashing vibrantly before my eyes! But allow me to advise you despite my limited experience in the literary arts, to try to work harder on your rhymes and try to keep your lines balanced. Along with your creative words and descriptions, that would make your sentence structure stronger yet simpler to read, therefore more influencing and mind-blowing! I look forward to reading more of your work, and I would be grateful if you would read mine since i recently started submitting. Thank you :) (Report) Reply

    the flow is too nature
    and the sense is so deep
    (save that moment in box.....)
    the momentum is there...... when the love strikes there and you.... smile/ well done, it's piece of gem (Report) Reply

    To me, your poem is a strange experience now. Usually I try to read the poet's soul over his/her lines. Let me read you again, deeper still, until i find the real gem out of it. God Bless. wait... (Report) Reply

    This is a really beautiful and touching write.
    Two souls coming together in love and
    passion. So eloquently expressed. When love
    strikes it hits very hard especially when there is
    no prying eyes. Lovely. (Report) Reply

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
