As you arise from the turbulent lake,
I know you are mine through time
To me you'll always be the girl I held in embrace eons ago
The companion whose love flowed like the life giving elixir
The first rapture of the feelings of youth

Each time those feelings return with an even greater swell
And I search for you everywhere
My broken wings flapping against the cage
Someday, somewhere I'll fly again
Alleviate this pain in me of having half lived

The raven darkness inside wells up as tears
Why did I forsake this life?
To always seek you in others
Your fragrance
Your touch and feel
Your body
Your intimacy
I never stopped missing you,
Yet I looked outside
In spite of the knowledge,
That the fragrance was exuded only for me
To complement mine
You were in me

Those moments were unsullied by the plans of future
Or restrained by the promises of a life together
Where was the need to captivate you in binding?
It was just like knowing 'we'll be together forever'
The belongingness encompassing eternity
Let us choose to live in another lifetime
As children growing up together
The fragrance of my body shall guide you
Just as your eyes will show me
The expression of invitation there unchanged

Yesterday has slipped away from our reach
And today is just a fistful of sand
Once more let us complete
The emotion in your dulcet note
Reciting as I write
The yellow colour of daffodils
As spring meanders through
The duet in the wind
As we ride into oblivion

Once again, we will be at the nadir of happiness
Or at the depth of despair
The way we were eons ago
The wisdom of the mystical poets we lived
When their names were just obscurity
For what is love, but the need
To feel the yearning and the pain
So that we may experience real ecstasy?
