HAPPY VALENTINE DAY~by Rajendra Padhi


 

 

HAPPY VALENTINE DAY

The moment you kissed me
I became your lips,
The moment you hugged me
I became your heart.

The moment you told me
I am loved I became
A mouthful of spring in your words.

I became
A purple depth in you,
The days had their feet
To carry us swifter than ever
To the land of stars and moon.

We were so bright
The lamps could ever know,
The dreams were so transparent
The diamonds could ever become
In those nights of indomitable love.

But the roads broke into zigzags
Our heart beat like the tail of a fish
Fluttering, twisting, forcing
And pressing towards water.

In sad evenings
We felt like turtles lost in sand,
We were broken like stems
A grey destiny waited for us
To lie alone in our rooms.

We lost our paths
Like travelers in deserts for oasis
Alas! I could not become like you
In art and wisdom of love.
