TOUCHING YOU~by Saroj Padhi




I will touch your soul
every time you draw me
near your burns
that under beauty so starkly stare
I will not touch your body
but heal it with
the brush of some wishes
and a balm of my prayer .

I will for sure make you
an addict to my soul’s love
as an aroma in sweet air
that will always elude you
like trails of shadows
chasing bodies all so very bare .

Then at last when to a futility you’re cast
you will be the first to haunt my dreams
in the shadow of the scented kadamba tree
near my grave , with none to listen to or lament
over the wild welter of your growing screams .

There I will touch the old wounds of your body
and the black burns of your heart
under the shadow of a clouded moon
fulfilling all pending desires
to end all dark sighs and weak , hopeless swoon.
