If Only

on

If only I could make you see
Through these amorous eyes of mine,
You’d leave the world and worship thee
Thinking your flesh divine.
And all the wars of every kind
Would cease without a fight,
And in every dark night you would find
Your own self flickering bright.

If I only I could make you hear
Through these adoring ears of mine,
And make you smell the way I do
When two hot breaths combine.
All the tunes that please the mind
Would seem like yours in morn,
And in every sweet rose you would find
Your fragrance lingering on.

And lastly one day ere we part
Like transient beings with tears,
If only once through your admirer’s heart
You could feel this arcane Sphere;
All the atomies, shadows and lights
Would say that you are mine,
And in every bend of life you’d sight
Our own true love to shine.

  2. Too bad the ones who want to see and hear us are not always the eyes and ears we crave.
