The Shortest Distance

‘Which path has the shortest distance

To reach you?’ my beloved asked.

Like the calm sea assimilating a fresh river

I stood cold looking into her deep eyes.

 

(‘Drop by drop, cell by cell, breath by breath

I was dissolving in you, melting into you’.)

 

Even the Neelakurinji seldom knows

The path of spring and blooms in 12 years of blue.

Even the Hornbill seldom knows

The path of first raindrop and ends it’s wait.

 

(‘Drop by drop, cell by cell, breath by breath

I was dissolving in you, melting into you’.)

 

 

I, dream of a starry night;

Bloom in a Spring of Goosebumps

I feel autumn in my sober heart

And my sorrows fall as leaves

 

(‘Drop by drop, cell by cell, breath by breath

I was dissolving in you, melting into you’.)

 

 

I cry and tears make me blind

I sigh and lips hold my breath

I still feel your first touch

I still miss that solidified fragrance

 

(‘Drop by drop, cell by cell, breath by breath

I was dissolving in you, melting into you’.)

Tears were rolling down her cheeks.

At that moment in the west

The Wounded sun was again

Disappearing Into the calm sea.

 

(‘Drop by drop, cell by cell, breath by breath

I was dissolving in you, melting into you’.)
