I plea you come yet again
Lest on my bed I go insane
In my heart the night lasted for minutes
I guess a lovely insomnia made me sleepless
Here comes yet the day; though date gone by
I wished you would knock: yet you passed by
Then my pillow became wet of tears
And sleep cheated my red eyes.
I disappeared to meet you in saturn:
As the earth is worthless to have you borne
It is night again!!!
Hurry now and come
Ere she opens her door for sun
When night love doth have no home
Urimma, far has time gone against coyness
I would annex my heart for your love
Only attend to my madness
A genuine madness of a loving dove
I would love as long lingers it-
For the ishmelites to believe Christ
A breast I would admire for whole night
Then the whole day, your waist
A bright light would bang, that unruly sun,
on our curtain
To tell us it is down
I then tell him to visit the seas, hospitals and
Where fishes should wake to swim, doctors to
dispense drugs and students for studies
After which to mortuaries,
To awake the sleepers
Give me your emerald breasts;
Where will but revive my rugged poetic hands
Give a touch to my deserted chest,
And rejuvenate my broken heart
Come open your lovely heart
So I build my romantic tent
Then we live and beget fruits,
That will save when no love nature knows.
