By the windowsill
First diya of night breeze
Keeps burning.
The light stings everyone alive.
The door opens after knockings
Behind the scene images flash open for
Display of affection.
I recall your presence when the door closes
And melting thoughts stop dripping.
The wax of your memory is a candle of art
Waiting to be shaped.
Your heart-warming embrace
Makes the smiles on photographs
Too difficult to live and forget.
It is not easy to cherish once
Before the emotions roll away.
Creases on touch
Miss the age of innocence.
The night of experience keeps me awake.
Skin to skin and breath to breath
Sunken solace floats above
Our sea of consummating fire.
Burning is an affection
Highly touchy with regards
To distilled emotions.
