Sun Tzu of Love

Sun Tzu of Love
by azly rahman

love thyself
love thine enemies
a hundred battles
a hundred memories

were they not thine beautiful eyes that i saw?
as bright as Venus could be?
that captured my soul
as i was walking slowly
towards eternity?

were those thine lips as sweet
as memory red
as the sweetest strawberry
as though heaven-sent
for my lips and eyes
that are mine only?

carved like the open shore they are
a tempetuous wave
of a night of rage

thine lips smiled a thousand whiles
shifting sands
weeping are mine
yearning for yours
as the calmness of the night
to ease things entire ...

beauty is a loss of words not longer
i see beyond this
no sound nor fury shall prevail
for thine eyes hath pierced the many worlds entire

each teardrop thine shed
of a memory we once shared
becomes a drop in the ocean of mercy
only sages and sadhus and siddharthas
would cry to sleep
yearning for the soul to be free
from this bond
of the longing and the belongingness

have i not seen you before
in a distant memory?
when my soul was not yet in me
when my spirit is but a form none can see?

have i not met you
in that lone dark street
that face i yearn to see
to feel
to touch
in no haste?

of immense beauty you are
larger than any Universe i have seen

what form you are?
wherein do you reside?

why have you cometh to haunt me?
from here till eternity?

release me
from this madness
of uresolved hopeleness

i called thine name
from mount ararat
from the ruins of paradise lost
from the snowtops of kilimanjaro
from the ocean floor of my humility

thine love is a weapon
thine gaze is a curse
thine eyes a cage

of endless horizon for my battered soul
whose life is lived for a love forsaken
when madness and melancholy
and the dread of what i live for daily

is all in the circle of the cries
of longingness
for thee i worship
incessantly
