Sunny’s Desert Rose

a poem by Antrina Valencia Rodrigues

You called me a rose of the desert,
A flower desired by many, discovered by none.
But you, being the fortunate one.

You spoke of a blue night of celestial bodies
With a Blue Moon caressing you, in blue light,
You set alight your passionate wishes,
You beacon the Heavens above,
Desiring desert rose, you seek her love.

Desert rose blossomed on a dune,
Nourishing on rain clouds,
Nurtured by the flames of passion,
By a sphere of infuriating heat,
Radiating your love and endless enchantment.
Beautiful and sweet.
As the wildest honey,
Ever tasted by sunny.

Gently stirring to the cold desert wind,
On a dry desolate expanse, sea of sand,
Rare glimpse of magnificence, desert rose,
Radiates her glow on this dark clime.
Arms entwined in warm embrace,
Lips sealed in affectionate grace.
Your love for her burgeoned.
You have come close.
To loving the desert rose.

Soul Love

a poem by Antrina Valencia Rodrigues

If you could ever see,
the inner me,
If you could ever try,
to breath love unto Me.
If you could ever touch grace,
lost in space.
If you could just love me – for me.

Then would I see the enchanted,
Then could I feel more wanted.
I see the splendours of Man,
And the downfall of good intentions.
Like, in timeless journey,
From searching to salvage,
I take what’s mine.
And that is you forever.

Can neither reach nor fathom
Your presence, can I?
The depth your love, I so deny.
Can’t seek, Can’t break,
Can’t face, Can’t take,
Can’t hold, Can’t Let go,
Can’t hate you any more.
