Do not love me this vigorously…
Do not love me this fervently…
My heart is searing and sweltering,
With the agonizing torridity of your love.
The luscious dreams in my eyes are
Smoldering and burning out.
I never coveted for this much love
That I cannot compromise or cherish
Inside my heart’s mother of pearl.
All that I wanted was the complacent warmth
Of a miniscule spark of love, to haul the burden
Of a lugubrious despondency that weighed upon me.
And cross the Empty Quarter of a desert of
Arduous affliction that threatened my existence.
I managed to reach the shore struggling with
The waves of grueling misery, with the helping
Heart touch of a loving hand stretched out towards me.
I could break the walls of a fortress of
The sweltering heat shield of the stifling summer,
With the chilling wetness of a moist kiss
Of your beguiling lips that lingered in mine.
I am surviving as a burning candle now,
Without perishing in the hell fire of my expectations,
Only with the fond memory I relish from the past,
Of a loving caress, of your soothing hand.
So do not drown me by immersing me
In the deluge of your savage love;
As I cannot withstand the sight of
A flayed heart by your lurid love …
