This is where I lock up my feelings
Feelings sometimes ridiculed in a cruel world
Where a certain logic reigns supreme
Trying to bind every being with invisible chains.
Supremacy of the ego, with all its ugly facets,
Competition, rivalry and jealousy
Join together, often hiding behind a mask of prestige
Leading man to bite and snarl, growl and kill.
Killing the tender feelings, soft and soothing
Lying dormant in every beating heart
Not knowing that each pulse, each beat
Is still purity and love flowing through veins.
So I lock up safely my little joys
The minuscule specks of love and romance
The memories of touch, flaring with passion
Or soothing and soft, cool as a cloud.
Memories of kisses, exchanged in the heat of a love
Which melt down with a sweetness sticky and soft
A sweetness which clings on, lingering forever
Not wanting to leave this altar of love.
In this corner of my heart I arrange them neatly
To be taken out time and again
At the sight of a flower, at the hum of a bee
A secret joy known only to the heart and soul.
Just a corner of my heart, but the space is infinite
I go on adding meaningful moments
Everything tied to this precious love
Every ache, every scar, every throb brought by separation.
They say time wipes away everything, “but no”,
I say; we just lock our memories away
For eternity they lie, in this corner of my heart
Alive and throbbing, yet silent and still
I take them out, I put them back
In moments of solitude, often mistaken for loneliness
The radiance of these jewels, make my whole being
Glow with a silken light, soft and alluring.
