WHEN I LEAVE THIS WORLD SHALL I LOOK BACK? – 3

 

When I leave this world

Shall I look back

Trying to plan

My flesh landscape differently,

Placing rivers of pleasure

Within solid banks of chastity,

Green valleys of meditation

Around volcanos of desire,

There,

I would tell my dethroned soul

To reign again

With your Kingdom’s

Eternal winds.

 

 

WHEN I LEAVE THIS WORLD SHALL I LOOK BACK? – 4

 

When I leave this world

Shall I look back

Trying to reconstruct

My fleshy structure,

That once was

Your supposed-to-be

Safe temple,

With higher ramparts

And a securely locked gate

So that

You would never leave

However long

I had been icy

However long

You had to wait?

 

 

WHEN I LEAVE THIS WORLD SHALL I LOOK BACK? – 5

 

When I leave this world

Shall I look back

To ask why my body

Has so long been

Accommodating

An invader called

‘The desire’?

And, in vain,

I went on and on

Asking You to put out

The deadly fire

Till I finally got, innermost

My yearning heart,

Your eternal flames

That heals, cools

And tames.

 

 

WHEN I LEAVE THIS WORLD SHALL I LOOK BACK? – 6

 

When I leave this world

Shall I look back

To see my body?

It wasn’t perfect

Nor beautiful …

Neither huge nor strong

Nor sacred …

Nor even pure.

Yet, oh!!

How desperately you wished

Your deep warm heartfelt

Dwelling … in there …

Would endure!
