Utopia

February 13, 2017 | By

Love is… finding utopia even in shackles. On Valentine’s Day, enjoy this sweet love poem from Ramendra Kumar.

paper boat

I was at peace
Floating along
Like a  paper boat
In the torrent of life

Until
You exploded
Into my being,

Sweeping me away
Like a postage stamp
In a gale.

The touch
Of your pliant lips
Holding me
In thrall.

Your eyes spinning
A gentle web.

The dulcet notes
Of  your voice
Enmeshing me in a collage
Of  rhythm.

Your smile
Shackling me
In eternal captivity.

Without you…
Freedom
Is an anathema.

With you
Bondage is
Utopia.
