Amaranthine





I love you when your scarlet lips pray                       
And your feather feet turn the fate of my way,
I love you when you carry the sky in your eyes
And bind the oceans in seraphic smile,
You're the moonlit verse which heavens wear
An ageless song that clouds shower.

I love you for amaranthine is your loveliness
Your arms a fragile haven for my slowing self
I love you when you kneel with kindness
And touch my barren soul's emptiness.

  2. There is a certain color to your poem. May be due to some of those beautiful words. And then comes your verses. A wonderful blend of color and love.

    1. I wrote it recently when something very tender happened, something that was tender than the tender night. Maybe the colours reflect the shades of my heart Pranju. You're such a friend. Man needs his friends in the nights of his happiness as he needs them in nights of darkness. Thank you for always being there.

    1. If you say this, then she has won. What are my words if not a heartfelt shot at reflecting her care, my words a humble seeker of her promises. Thank you Umaji.

  5. The love expressed in your poems is divine... The words that express this love will fill a desire in any girl to feel and experience it for once in her life ... But when you go deep into the poem through each and every line , it gives a sense of joy to love and be loved and at the same time when you go deep through the lines of the poem you can feel a sore point that is being described through words by the writer through this poem !!

    1. Hi Lopa,

      Perhaps it is hard to separate the melancholy for the poet from the love he feels for her. Thank you so much for dropping by. It's always great to hear from you.

  12. Reading the words was like a slowing down of a fast life, to savour the moments they elicit. There is a tenderness in the surrender to love.
