And my eyes just fell
Upon the roundness of your lips
Now my entire body is set ablaze
In fervour to devour them.
An impeccable beauty you are
My eyes could simply not turn away
A fire you have lit in my soul
Now I prefer burning in it for eternity.
If only words could reveal
What an insane lover you’ve made out of me in a single instance
I spent years studying the scriptures
And memorizing holy verses
In one single glance it was all taken away
To be substituted by the light in your face.
Now what need is there for me
To borrow couplets from Rumi or Hafiz
Your love has kindled a fire
That will reduce even their poetry to ashes.
Count me not of those who are given to flattery
No! Im not of the glib talkers
Angels have recorded
How my heart stands baffled
By the way your eyes have mesmerised away
All my five senses
Perhaps your mirror may not reveal
Your true beauty to you
Just reside in my heart for a moment
And see how glorified you are there.
Cease not to tempt me
With those beautiful smiles
Cease not to seduce me
With that naughty glance
Here am I at your door step
Now let me in with peace
Or watch me
Break the keys.
