Not for you...

If I shed tears
It is not for you, Adunni
If I made thorns my nest
And clay my bread
It is not for you
I ignored the pleasant sights of Venus
I resisted the pleasures of Jezebel
I refused to hide in the trojan horse
To conjugate in the naked night
Only If I never risked my father's rod
To love you afterall

How could you have danced with me in the rain
When your love was not to reign

If I sat at the doorway
Lost in thoughts all day
with no words to say
Sighing 'n' Grieving
How i end in deperdition
It is not for you, Adunni


My heart is stained n bittered
By the shores of Nile you flattered, You wooed n tamed me
The sands of Arabia felt our warmth
The bright skies of the Austria
Gazed on us
We were magic to the Hindu's
Trapped in your viscious smiles


Ah, I begged Time
To call back kikelomo
I Plead the spirit of love to
Send wind and rain
Send light and ravens
Let them deliver my heavens
Wishes untold
To Legends reborn

Kikelomo,

I was lost
But now I'm found.

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..
