The Dark Night Of Soul

Spread the love

Between the crescent moon
and satin sheets
a heated flush is spreading
that makes my heart
taste storm
while city is asleep.
Do you ever wonder
how deep
and decadent it gets
when your scent
as wild as box-berries
writes lines
across my skin–

  6. HA says:

    OOH, the flow of the poem is reminiscent of the gentle touch of a lover. The scent writing lines on the skin is such an evocative feeling — the smell, the ardor, the intimacy all have such a pathos like quality to them with the end in sight. Almost reminded me of the word “Viraha”. And that took me to Faiz.
    Sublimely done.
