They surmise proud is occupancy of male
And get submerged in air of despondency
Synchronously, men glaciate by dream of female
And women get dashed upon the obloquy.
I dream of you more than once
Been with and for me alone
But never maintain temerity to reach you
Except a vacant stare at you to be tantalized
I wouldn’t blink watching you
I perceive the dream fetter between us
Thus I’m panic about its closure will wake up me
And dissipate you
Sceptical on your ear at my supplication
“Oh my buddy
Wipe off pains from my poisoned bash
Fix between both my splashed pinions
Unleash the tethers of my slender limbs
Be my timid heart’s traces of impregnability
And fulfill fetus dreams
Be my vessel’s sailor navigate it towards haven of life
Be my fondness’ heart, be my heart’s tenderness”.
Will bequeath my veins to sprawl
If you measure the depth of my perpetual hallucinations
Will bestow my twigs to bloom
If you be fronds screen me in second life.
I stumble in occasions my dream trips in
Like shores in instants waves depart
I cognize the absence of fate to couple us
For we hail from distinct wombs.
Even though I’m darker than you
Why you conceal the moonlight from me.?
What I know about this world except to sprout?
In the optimism that I will stay in bud once again
Can I fall down?
