I Long For You, O Lover. Dedicated to Shauna Bowling
In my aloneness, I cling on in this realm of struggle.
I am an isolated bird, lost in a mirage of sorrows.
I reach out in my despair, but You remain a running stream.
Ah! How I long to touch the rainbow,
After life’s torrential rain!
I awake to find that the vintage wine,
Only augments the pains of an aching Heart.
Now every abode appears like darkened clouds.
Come! O Lover! Make this mind tranquil;
The Heart akin to snowflakes,
Waltzing upon the whispering wind.
How I long for a Divine Marriage,
This mystic rhapsody of supernal bliss!
Destiny comes and destiny goes,
Yet I need this steadfast unflinching gaze,
Paving a pathway to the portals of Your sweet beauty,
Dancing softly in my core.
Come! The enchantment of Your music thrills my Soul;
I yearn for this intoxicated Love,
Created by an influx of ten thousand Lovers,
Caught, like winter, by the fire-wood of Your unspoken Delight.
Cute Lover, help me to blend with Your great symphony,
Floating among perennial constellations;
Twinkling with Thy moonbeams ... the stars at night.

I Long To Join Your Chivalry Of Lovers
Come! My Beloved. My Heart is torn and desolate.
Pour Your sweet balm into my wound.
Let Your stars twinkle into the tunnel of my nights.
I long to taste You ...to join Your chivalry of Lovers,
Blending with the delicious feast,
Of Thy celestial banquet.
Come, my Sweet One,
I wish to stride without moving;
To dance with the silhouette of Thy sweet image;
To dream within the dream.
Ah! How I long to remain a beggar,
Prize open the windows of my Soul,
To merge into the sweetness,
Of Your remedial and ambrosial Love. Copyrighted. –Manatita, 30th June, 2016.
