But I dream of your image

distorted by the glass window

dashing across on your way to places

only in my imagination could follow.

My breath painting the surface

of the glass with secrets I swallow

with dismay, for you will never belong

to my heart in this reality,

nor will I ever touch your hair

the way the wind does in the misty rain.

And for you a moment not long

but an eternity in my despair

to taste this instance in time,

distorted by my longing your image

the only thing truly mine-

H.O


“See how she leans her cheek upon her hand.

O, that I were a glove upon that hand

That I might touch that cheek!”

Embriaguez

~

Si me miras de una forma, me enloqueces

si sonríes de momento, me estremeces

cada gesto me desborda mis anhelos

como vino entre mis labios tú me embriagas

con miradas y con gestos-

Y en las noches tu mirada en mis desvelos

me persigue y me roba la cordura

mis deseos una locura

pues tenerte serían sueños

y tocarte en desesperos

cuando el tiempo se me agota.

Dime entonces niña amada

si carezco de tus gestos y sonrisas

y me enfrento a mis días sin empeños

¿puedo entonces liberar mi corazón?

Tu no entiendes que en mi mente la razón

ha perdido cuando puedo entonces verte

y tus gestos me desbordan los anhelos

y tu sonrisa me estremece el corazón.

Intoxication

~

Certain way you look at me, it drives me crazy

if you smile all of the sudden, it will shake me

every gesture overflows my constant yearning

like red wine between my lips you intoxicate me

with every look and every gesture-

And in nights your look awakens

it will follow and rob my sanity

crazy notion my desires

for to have you only a dream

and to touch you a desperation

when my time becomes exhausted.

Tell me then beloved girl

If I lack your smile and gestures

and face my days without persistent

Could I then break away and free my heart?

You don’t know how my mind loses reason

when I’m still able to see you

and your gestures overflow all my yearnings

and your smile trembles my heart.

H.O

Lost Garden

Lost Garden

~

I still see you sometimes

wandering lost through my garden

gently touching the flowers found

among overgrown weeds.

With tender hands you pull the vines

to expose the beautiful petals

hidden undergrowth,

giving them light in  a profound

gesture of love,

spreading seeds

to continue the cycle of life.

I silently watch you from afar

trapped in your spell

following the scent in the air

diverse amid the roses.

Alone I will trace remnants of your touch

lingering in the flowers

a farewell

to dreams overgrown

in my deserted garden-

H.O


“Happiness will bloom

With fragrance and beauty

If you plant the seeds of love

With a deep driving desire

in the garden of hope

And nurture with tenderness,

Compassion, and care;

If you are always eager to share.”

― Debasish Mridha

Double Pleasure

Double Pleasure

~

She lies in between two lovers,

four caressing hands

with heat rising to her wants

a fusion of kisses under the covers.

What a delightful sin to commit

a daring act of pleasure as she submit

to every exquisite desire

fulfilling her fantasy to acquire

two lovers to quench her fire.

H.O.


“…There is the heat of Love, the pulsing rush of Longing, the lover’s whisper, irresistible—magic to make the sanest man go mad.”

Your map

Your Map

~

I was following the bluish lines behind your neck

your moon pale skin became a map

I wished I could somehow traverse across your back

and follow paths that lead to heavens-

And then you smiled

like if you knew somehow I had

these thoughts in mind

while sitting close, so close behind

to smell your scent

and see the map so clear aligned

with bluish trails

I wished to follow across your back-

H.O

Butterfly

Butterfly

~

Fleeting wish to capture and keep you

my beautiful butterfly

wild and free among the blossoms,

I dream to lure you away from a majestic life

into my eager hands

selfishly hiding you from others

to touch your wings

and smear your colors of desire

all over my soul-

H.O


“She is like a butterfly,

Beautiful to look at

But hard to catch.”

Equal

~

Let’s exchange our passion

and compare flames burning deep within-

We can sooth our longing on each other’s skin

without any promises,

we can scorch each other without any ashes

left for sifting through.

And I know your flames burn hotter than mine

for I seen your glow far across the sky

so let’s swap our heat and become entwined

in a molten bed burning our desires

where you’ll come to find

our equal yearning

will be satisfied-

H.O
