The Sunset.

Once at a crossroad,

Two figures met,

Clashing yet striking,

One, a blinding sensation of light,

Pulsing softly and hard at intervals,

The other a dampener on light's dazzling aura,

Cool and heavy with unnatural burdens,

Shrouded in gloom and darkness,

They met,

These great figures at a crossroad,

And stood watching,

To the mundane eyes,

A clashing of powers,

But to them,

A sad reunion of two lovers,

Forbidden to love,

Forbidden to touch,

For they compliment each other,

The very opposite of themselves,

But forbidden to meet,

For humanity sake,

So they watch on,

Longing and aching,

But no more than that,

Darkness reaches out to day,

But she shies back,

Afraid of the catastrophe that would be born,

Fleeing from her lover's face,

She cries and bleeds,

Darkness grief is poured out in volumes,

And the sunset is born,

A spectacular moment for the humans,

But a sad parting for the immortals.

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
