Skirting the truth, I skipped around the beach
“Water’s dangerous”, chirped many a noisy beaks,
“ ‘Tis cold and deep and dangerous and unkind,
Stay away, little girl, oh you juvenile mind!”
The endless skies were my heart’s delight!
“Soaring too high, beware of the Sun’s might.”
“Bask if you want, but from a distance.”
Here I stood dejected, at the edge of a rigid fence.
The glory of night, was only despised,
Warned, I drew away, scared of horror-filled cries
"The home of haunted", did have a mystic touch
The dark was hailed as abode of forbidden lust.
Tempted to step over, needing that one prod
Mired in wonder, did I actually need a nod?
He had to come, and come he did,
Filling me with beauty, dispelling all myths.
He came bathed in the crystal ocean,
Luminous, with softness of rising sun
Descending from a beaming unicorn,
Whom glittery jewels of the night adorned.
We allowed the waves to caress our feet,
His hand reached out, to steady my wobbly gait,
The water was warm, not a prickly cold,
Danger stood afar, my heart was in his hold.
The balmy sun sent out its love,
I and he basked in its mirth.
Together we rode on the stream of air,
Plummeting down? No longer a fear!
Night came again with its horrors and charms,
Nervous and cold I stood in his arms,
The cries I heard were of my own ecstasy,
In pleasure and passion now lay my dark fancy.
They all say love comes with its risks. They further color it with forbidden hues. But each of you who has experienced it knows the joy which only true, rich, passionate and intense love can give you. Throw the stereotypes in the ocean. Go out, immerse yourself in love and feel it to the fullest. A morning walk on the shore, hand in hand, talking of nothing in particular and yet conveying a lot is the perfect start to a lover's day. A night, filled with emotions shy of daylight; the dark giving cover to two souls trying to become one is the perfect end to a day spent loving and living. And as John Donne puts it, when you wake up the next day in your lover's arms,when it is The Good Morrow, you will find your entire world having come alive in that one little room you share with your beloved.
Don't be shy. Love is all there is.
