In the greenest of fields
And distant of homes ‘
Lays a heart waiting for the other
Both genetically en coded for each
The smiles and the laughters
The believe and acceptance
Understanding overcoming pretendence
And pretendence overcoming anger
A stick and a hole
Where illiteracy was comforted by illiteracy
Recent finding solace in primitiveness
A chemistry like a flood ravaging each other’s obstacles
And like waters in a desert
My face speaks to her
Like the long awaited rescue of a king
My voice dances in her head
A demi she seems to me
But my mind won’t tell
Neither does she says
But the reflections of the eyes and mouths says it all
