Aina

If I had only one poem left to write

one memorable scene
one life-altering moment
one indescribable phenomenon
one special feeling

one unforgettable touch
one memory to immortalize
one melody to recall
one word to whisper

A journey filled with the heart’s indefinable yearning – completed.
The mystery of faded sunsets, the beauty of tomorrow’s dawn – defined
in your beaming eyes – inviting me to dance – in them
Fearlessly – I surrender.

The mist of your breath lingers on my neck, kisses –like tiny tornadoes – still caress my skin
from miles away; I read aloud – your favorite poem – the one that always lulls you to safe slumber.
Half-asleep you murmur our cherished phrases – in my language – and I whisper back:

“Aina”.

****
This is not a new poem. I was just going through some of my older writings and decided that there’s absolutely no reason NOT to share them. As much as I enjoy “the now” and anticipate tomorrow; I am very thankful for yesterday. That’s all.

Edited: oh no, the first two lines in last verse were too long for this layout. I have to see if there’s anything I could do about it. The last verse doesn’t look good.

Update: Looks like it’s only messed up on the front page. If you click the title – it appears as it should. 🙂

Poetry in the Air

The moon is absent tonight
Only love illuminates the room
As you finally rest in my embrace
Far away in a dreamland
Yet in my deepest reality

Your slumbering hills
And inviting valleys
My promised land
Waiting to be explored

Anticipated scenery
Much more beautiful
Than any of those dreamy dawns
My yearning heart painted
With poetic words and shades of purple
When we still dreamed of the sunrise
On separate sides of the ocean
That does not divide but unites
Our islands – in love

On this night of wonders
I lay my lips on yours
Just to capture your smile
So that I can carry it with me
To wherever the journey takes us

A peaceful rest drifts over me
And I surrender
Under the covers of something
Unconditional, eternal and safe

I have nothing to wish for anymore
There is poetry in the air tonight

Hope

Only a breath apart
Our souls
Wrapped around
Each other
In this highly anticipated
Reunion

Forgotten worlds
Vowed promises
Reflect from your eyes
I recognize you
Undeniably

So much to say
Yet I lose my ability to speak
In any other language
Than unconditional love

My heart begs me
To reveal you
My solution
Promise you
We will make it
To the other side
Of our forever

Unfortunately,
I am not
The writer
Of your destiny

I just hold your face
In my palms
And wait…
For your lips
To greet mine

Silently praying
You’d inhale
Even a little bit
Of the faith
That whirls
In me

The song
We used to hum
Separately
Turns into a sweet duet

When our lips touch
And we breathe hope
In eternal harmony

How I long to pull you close
Feel our hearts beat sacred symphony – in unison
Drift off to sensual laziness
Nothing but warm skin between us

Trace the fullness of your curves
With my curious fingertips
Paint an everlasting love scene
Write a sweet haiku
On your skin

Admire your sleepy gaze
The emerald eyes filled with passion and peaceful calm
Read out lyrical creations – for your ears only
Fall asleep bodies tangled, fingers entwined
Dream together – in safe bliss

Tonight is not one of those nights
But still I love you here
Arms wrapped around you – from miles away
A step closer to the breathtaking dawn
That shines in the colors of your soul

No Words

I want to write you
A sensual story
Of yearning

A poem
That will never
Come to an end
But burns and flows
Endlessly
Like our kisses

And every time
Our lips meet
A new verse forms

I want to write you
A powerful ballad
Of love

A song
That will become
A part of your heartbeat
Always reminding you
Of your own importance

I want to write you
A mysterious novel
That goes back
To the beginning of time

A classic
That needs
No words
But is understood
At that moment
When our souls
Dance together
In the same space

A promise
Of undying love
That my eyes
Will speak
Every day
Until the end of time

Purple Passion

A silent moment
Naked and defenseless

The blushing morning sun
Burns
With purple passion

My body aches
To be caressed
Explored
By your searching lips
Your name is written
On my skin

How I miss the way
You hold me
In your loving arms
After you’ve showed me heaven

My muse,
There is no reason
Left to speak
Except to declare
My eternal love for you

I quiver
When your name
Blooms
On my lips

You are my home
I want to spend
The rest of my life
Harbored
In your arms
