The traveller’s tale
Embellished with mysteries
Bejeweled in romance
I searched for peace and along you came
Fragrant as an autumn breeze
Torchbearer to desire’s sensual flame
Love’s emissary, breathing words that bring ease
Through the hidden paths of lush forest trails
Your hand was laced in mine
Familiar, intimate and yet unknown.
Through the ripples of sunlight in the river vale
Your beauty sparkled,
Your complexion dazzled
You were mine, but only on loan
Oh the secrets of a lone traveller!
For what is an epic quest without love
What is a cherished memory if one acts as divulger
For upon my return
She’ll be the one thing
That only I can have
Where wrong and right become one
You and I collide
Foreign places can bring foreign love, touch the facets of our being that home can never reach.
Release the flow of an inner chakra perhaps.
I don’t know what you think, have you ever found that brief love that lone travellers are prone to find?
It does not break, it sates
It ends but never leaves
A secret that renews
