Desires

Your images
Keep flashing
On my inner eye

A long kiss in the woods
Confessing inner desires

Sleeping together
In the quiet afternoon
Our love entwined
Between us

—–

A long train
Of moving pictures

You and me
In love

The burning kiss
The lingering embrace

Warm

Like your red lips
And my brown eyes

Glistening
With slow desire

—–

I remember you
Still

That shy smile
That secret glint
That quiet wisdom
That hidden strength

The playful hands
And sensuous eyes

Touching the root
Of my wild desires

—–

Do you remember still?

That surprised night
Awkward and fumbling

You not ready
Me undecided
And confused

But
Do you regret
Letting down your guard

So suddenly?

    I see you were really burning the midnight oil on this one Anil!

    The sly finish to this one had me retreating to the start for more love calls again and again—just to get down to bottom for more fine-tuned reality.

    I am a slob for punishment when it comes to love.

    As always, your late-night electronic penmanship leaves us a well-honed, quizzical love sonnet.

    ah beatiful words! i wish your lady love would read this loving sonnet…you wont have to write in the past tense then. 🙂

  4. JW says:

    Superb as always. It’s a delight to visit this site of yours.

  5. Anil says:

    tangy: why, thank you and welcome here!

    finnegan: looks like this is my day for confessions…I’ve followed a policy of not dating the work I put up here so not everything is written on the day it was posted…some are from quite far back…a return to my past so to speak…this is one of them…but that doesn’t mean I’m giving up on your compliments…I will still take them!

    gulnaz: thank you! well, somethings are best said in the past tense…because they are over and done with…

    JW: hey is it really you? its been a long time…a warm welcome to you…and thanks a lot…it is nice to have you here!

  6. JW says:

    The same. Got your link from Ph’s blog. Had heard you’d shifted ~ but the genius is intact. Good work :)!

    “Warm

    And my brown eyes”

    I melted at this.

    “But
    Do you regret?
    Letting down your guard

    So suddenly”

    My breath caught on this.

    I breathe again, and love what I read.

    You have captured the moment perfectly. Particularly the ending.

    “Do you remember still?

    Perfect.

  12. gulnaz says:

    well…its perfect, anyway. 🙂

  13. Aran says:

    Loved this one Anil. One of your best I’d say. It reads like the progression of a relationship over a period of time. Great ending. I’m not usually so open with praise, really enjoyed this. 🙂

  14. indigo says:

    I liked the lines,

    sleeping together
    in the quiet afternoon

    and,

    glistening
    with slow desire

    mmmmmm…. sensual

  15. Anil says:

    JW: ah you praise me to much! thank you..but you havent left your site address…you still blogging?

    Mermaid and transience: ah, the two lovely ladies have returned! so nice to have you back…and thank you so much for your equally beautiful words…

    Rhohit: hey good to have you here dude…thanks!

    lorena: *takes a bow*…as always you leave lovely words behind…thank you!

    :A: ah, as always you are a man of endings! thank you…I’m glad you like this…

    cj: thank you…

    gulnaz:*smiles*

    Aran: my, my you seem to like this a lot to say that…thank you…yes…it is a condended story of a beautiful relationship…

    indigo: *smiles*..why thank you!

  16. . : A : . says:

    🙂

    What to do? I love good endings.

  17. A woman submits her soul
    Her whole
    To the man she loves
    Has no room to regret
    Though she might not be ready
    Wanting to give love
    Transform her soul into the light of giving

  18. Anil says:

    :A: *smiles*

    Nasra: The last line is so beautiful..did you just make it up? Amazing!

  19. rusty says:

    What wd you do …is she says that she does regret it ? Some things are meant to happen…regrets or no regrets….

  20. rusty says:

    …Beautiful sentiments though….U shd write more often.

  21. Anil says:

    rusty: I agree…but this was an excorcism of sorts…to absolve some guilt and make peace with the past…and thanks…I hope I’ll too!

  22. Wonderful. That’s all I can say about this, really.
