A poem to my darling

A wondrous verse in the corner of her eyes!
A mesmeric lyric, in her, in her lotus eyes!
Oh an enchanting poem her eyes so haunting!
Verses, verses,every where oh melodious verses!
So what, so what, perceived, perceived?
What not, what not, so well perceived?
What in what, I didn't so mention?
Why so, why so, not such mention?
Oh my looks in the looks, all looks-
My soul, so in the soul, so love,
My words, not charming the inner chest oh bright-
All so known, so known, well right,
Weeps so, weeps so, the hermit of anger?
Or laugh oh laugh, oh, the hermit of anger?
Playing, playing, oh the hermit of anger?
Take a bath, take a bath, oh the hermit of anger?
Today truth, tomorrow fiction-
On the next day, nothing, nothing,
Painful truths, all following?
Filling, filling in the inner chest?
Unknown,unsaid, telling, telling?
Known, so known, all vanish?
A poem, poem, oh to my darling-
In a few words, poem, poem,
All so filled a poem, poem-
A poem, poem, oh to my darling,
Would you come, so come with me?
Then could fill,so fill me, fill me?
Could so be in my Soul, my soul-
As a charming song, oh song sole?

William John

I am born and brought up in Kerala state, in India. In Kerala, Thrissur city is my native place and now I am residing at Kadavoor village in Ernakulam district.I am a senior lawyer at The High Court of Kerala. Literary talents all dwelt in my blood from my very birth itself. From, while studying in the primary classes, I wrote stories, dramas and poems in Malayalam.While studying in high school classes I wrote stories and poems in English. Then it grew in me as an endless blessing craze. I do write in English as well. I do write stories, novels, dramas and verses. I have written more than twenty thousand poems in Malayalam, about twenty novels and more plays.In English, now I have completed more than seven hundred poems. I think, very soon that it will grow to at least a five thousand. I am so much pleased and thankful to those nice friends who go through my poems all over the world and shower the rain of horripilate congratulations.
