Fragile Intimacy

A heart,
Small place
For such a big mission.

Had been visited,
By different faceted of life,
Marked and sealed many times,
By earthy love.

Had seen enough departures,
with no shame or regret.

Behind this calm, brave smile,
Lives a hero,
Full of conquers and lost,
Story of her walk in solitude
On landscapes of love.

A silent mind,
Dared to encounter with her,
Walked through her open gates,
Reached behind her sacred walls.

She was there,
Like a wanderer with no face,
Illuminated in dance of light.

The mind said ” I am in Love.”
Infatuated by fire of her eyes,
Promised her freedom,
In exchange of his black tail
Moving straight to centre of her light.

She was beating fast,
within captivity of her dreams
In waiting room of her destiny’s plans,
Within graveyards of her lost identities,
Within her thirst and lust to belong.

Finally the lovers within,
Came together as one.

Her energy linked into his,
Under the new moon,
Intimacy arrived.

She found herself,
In the new unseen threshold
Somewhere she belongs,
She named it “Fragility”.

The only place,
That lovers could live together
Heal together,
With no wall and pretences,
And cover themselves from
Bitterness of suffered eyes.

Heart is a small place,
for such a big mission,
To hold the burden of love,
At all times,
At all costs,
But with her lover in-house,
Hope visits them often,
With a gift of a lucid dream,
The open gates of Eternal love.
