Familiar Stranger – Love & Mystery – Poem

poetry Alok Mishra love mystery

Why should I stop
this ever-unsung tune
of warmth
of this strange coldness
that brings our love

when I hold you
just beneath my breath
and your lips give
salvation to mine
and properly, carefully
enshrine the bodies
which pleasantly cage
our happy souls

and after all this,
I think
never to pull the curtain
because we need
to be free
and to be free
we need
this mystery
until forever.


by Alok Mishra

for M, forever
