Timeless Love

Timeless Love

I am quiet.
My mouth is filled
With her warm breath,
And a storm
Of passion.

She whispers in my ears,
A fantasy
Never heard before...
"Love"!

Love?
Indeed...
I smile foolishly.
She covers my eyes
With her lashes.
I dream.

Her voice fills
The air around me.
Like the scent
Of her breath.
She says
"Promise."

My heart beats
Are faint and slow.
My world sways
In the gentle breeze
With thousands of butterflies
Of unseen colors.

I promise
To hold her close.
And she is weightless
In my arms,
In my love.

Once,
I slept with her
Under an undressed moon.

Her promise,
"Always or never?"

I wake up,
Every single morning,
In her olive eyes,
An eternal lover.

Timeless.

A timeless poem! Wow! slips like silk.. .. loved it to the core for its delicate , whiff of perfume like quality... I am at a loss of words even to praise.. mesmerizing... a song.. a drama.. a life eternal... kudos.. keep bringing out more goodies like this.
Also..
The poem had the feel of a well choreographed advetisement, short, transient capture of moments that make for a life time.. very Limca ad or maybe Lux? hummm? i dont know!

Oh my... such a romance! 'Olive eyes'.. 'undressed moon'... those are my favourite picks.
I'm saving this one. Keep it up Ankur. :D
