Beloved

a poem by

Shubhanshu Shrivastava

Time was floating as swift as lightening,
No melody of love entered my mind,
Until I met you, my love,
It was frightening, of the unholy past I left behind.

Your face I found wherever I was,
In my deepest dreams or the day ‘twas,
Long lost and awaiting, amazed I found,
My destiny in you, to you I am bound.
I was always divided, hollow and grave,
Feeling, half alive and half below the ground, engraved.
In that stoic silence you came to me,
Freeing from those broken chains that were meant to be,
My stony heart of the vehement cold, incessant,
Found your warmth, melting and repentant.
I look back at the recent times that passed,
Breathing, thinking of you persistent, starved,
Filling my heart with passion, and love,
To the drowning ecstasy of unspoken words.
Hence I say it, give you my word,
That I would love thee forever, O beloved.
