Ode to Love IX
Words have wooed, yet failed to bring her back;
Persuasion has stretched to her, its eager arms
In vain. I have roamed from street to streets,
Keeping her image in the core of my heart,
And around her, have risen and fallen the growth
And decay of my life, over my thoughts and actions;
My slumbers and dreams.
She remained in her loneliness waiting for her
Own day for recognition.
That ‘I want you, only you’, let the heart repeat persistently.
All desires that distracts me, day and night
Are false and empty to the core.
In the labyrinth of my unconsciousness
Rings that cry- “I need you, only you…”
