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!
