A flag at bay

When the torrents of the world beckons, 

When it beckons and keeps me at bay,

I waved a flag,

A call to the people at shore,

People who already laid at anchor,

In the affluence and fortune of the sea,

I called for rescue, I am ensnared,

I am trapped at bay, no one stuttered.

Bay - a state of helplessness,

Where even a man of strength cannot trod.

Bay - a situation, a time once or twice,

In the lifetime of every man,

Man only hope to get a lifeguard, 

A life guard to the rescue at a time of sinking.

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..
