Love and Longing

Love and Longing

For all the sweetness of love,
And uncountable kisses;
There shall always be
On the tip of tongue
A salty drop of tear,
A thirst unquenchable.

I wait for you
Dressed in soft, white sand;
A little of my shore
Is eaten away every day.
 Such is the hunger of love.


A glorious moon conspires.
Every night,
You leap in passion
To touch the moon.
I wait for you
Every night
In envy and love.

You fall in my arms,
And I hold you.
I am your bottom, ain't I?
You dream of the moon,
In my arms.

  Tides of pain rise and fall.
You, playful and young,
I, Drowned in your pain.
Longing for you
To turn back.
Hoping...
You wont turn away.

A moment...
Still, in time.
Framed, in boundless space.
We stand together
In the infinite sea
Of love, longing and passion.
At the edge of the world.

A little of my shore
Is washed away every day.
Eaten away
In the rush of passion.

You have some really wonderful lines that are full of emotion and passion like the ones above, Ankur.

Metaphor is excellent and lends itself to a lot. You have successfully taken this into the realm of the good. Shorten it without sacrificing the feeling and make it great :)
