Take Me Now – Poem #04 – (2022)

Take me now,
Into the springs of your natural flow.
Let me feel the beat of your heart
While in my hands I grab your face
And make love to you.
Take me now,
I mean my breath!
Let me lose myself
Into your deepest self
Let me take you far far away.

If You Want – Poem #7 – (2021)

If you want a lover,
I’ll do anything for you.
And if you want another kind of love,
I’ll kill myself for you.

If you want a writer,
I’ll write books for you.
If you want a poet,
I’ll narrate poems for you.
If you want a love-mate,
I’ll drop everything just to make love.
If you want a boxer,
I’ll step into the ring for you.
And if you want a doctor,
I’ll examine every inch of you.
If you want a driver,
Climb inside my heart.
Or if you want to take me for a ride,
You know you can, ‘coz I’m your man.
If you want a father for your child,
Or only want to walk with me for a while
Across the road, hold my hand.
‘Coz I’m your man!

Oh sweet love, look at the moon!
It’s too bright.
The chain of thoughts,
[you leaving me behind]
It’s too tight.
The beast inside me, won’t go to sleep,
I’ve been running through these
[Promises] to you,
That I made and I could not keep.
But oh sweet love!
Ever a man got a woman back?
Just by begging on his knees?
May be Yes, may be Not!
But I am lost.
