A Day on the Caucasus till the Next Morn

Reading : 1 minute

A love poem by Ayub, in the tradition of the Romantics, in Different Truths

 

How I have escaped

From the illusions of her lips!

On her grayish eyebrows

Were throbs of the untold mystery?

In the depth of her eyes

Blossomed pleasures of seven colours,

On the right cheek of her was a reverent

Demand of a kiss in the contracted mole.

 

In the waves of wind,

Coming from the half open window,

The wild dance of the soft curly black locks,

Pulsation of touches

Rustling in the pores of delicate fingers,

No one knows how much implicit

Infusing in my impatient heart,

The brown haired enchantress of Caucasus bound me

From each and every angle

In her unspoken miraculous elegance,

And I found myself molten in fragrance

Of her soul, sound, and structure,

Each drop of the of her

Kept quenching my thirsty throat,

Ran into my streams of blood.

 

When the rustling, moonlit-night,

Cling to the nude golden body

Of the day,

I don’t remember.

How many centuries I’ve spent,

I know not.

I’m still mesmerised how I have escaped

From the illusions of her lips!
