When the bright sun was eclipsed yesterday
With shadows from below, I saw the moon
Glowing silver and soothing blue.
And right away a frozen heart within
Began to thaw. The blood rushed to my face
And my fallen pulse throbbed again.
The lavish moonlight in mild whispers said
they’d be gone in an hour or two hardly
And they asked for my eyes till then.
To which I couldn’t say no, being thunderstruck.
Standing there on the corridor, after
A long long time, it felt like I was falling in.
When the parching wind shook us to the core
With a chill from up north, I came across
A Jasmine smelling sweet at night.
I shivered, but not from the chilling cold.
I felt as if that sweet smell, suddenly
Was all that ever flowed through me.
The wind around, dewy with shreds of fog
Smelled the same. And then I could breathe no more.
In whisper asking for my love
Till her scents all fade to thin air, she said,
‘Come and be mine!’ and I couldn’t say a thing.
It felt like as if again, I was falling in.
