The shores are far away;
The waves are breaking on the cold
Alabaster stone, on the corniche.
My paper boat is rollicking unruly
On the waves, in a sea of tears.
There is no one to share the throes
Of this heavy burden in the mind.
The twinge is spreading malignantly
Into the soul, like a crab in the sand.
I can see the gleam of a few stars
Glistening in the far away precinct
Of the skyline, like sentinels guarding
The darkness and the occasional flash
Of lightning trying to assuage the wrath
Of the night, by snuggling in fondness.
Still juggling in the hands of the cruel waves,
I remain ignorant of my directions, in frenzy
Listening to the cry of the sea birds in derision.
The flame of life is deflecting in the vortex of
The swirling waves, of the rancid water.
The earthen pot of agonies wrangling
To quench its thirst, in despair;
Now a faint twilight dawns in the horizon.
I am nearer to a verdant shore where
She is waiting to greet me with
Wine of her love and the warmth of her body…

Time is an unknown lover, and
Life, his sweet beloved.
Yielding dreams and tears,
Embrace and kiss, adore and hug,
And then discard like an unwanted treasure...
Will make beautiful gardens among the sky
Build a mansion inside that garden,
Will cherish and foster children of love,
And at last drown us in the pyre of grief.
Alas! Such is the amazing kinds of dreams!
It will display unseen heavens and then
Take us for a delightful joy ride
In a chariot of gold through the sky;
With a lullaby will soothe you and lead
You to a slumber quietly with
The most excellent music on earth.
Then land in a forlorn desert and
Abandon you there to die and become rancid.
Alas! Relationships entangles in such a way!
