I become the Knight

I Stand amongst the dark night
I become a knight
I walk with the bluntly sharp sword
My Shield is love,
and only Love

The path is a little foggy
The forest denser than what I had thought of
My body is fragile
The heart though has the strength of the mighty Mountain

I live in the womb of words
I was born in a rhythm of divine poetry
I dance back and forth in verses
My skin tone is a shade of ink

Call me what you will
I will in the enclosed space create a dream
Without doors and windows
My room yet shall always remain bright

Because
I Stand amongst the dark night
I become a knight.

When You touch My Skin

And sometimes
when you touch my skin
and a wave of goosebumps
are dancing on the top of my skin

I wonder what good I did to deserve love like yours!

 

And sometimes
when you hold me tight
and the breathless heart
falls in love with the divine suffocation

I wonder what good I did to deserve love like yours!

 

And sometimes
when you look at me
and every part of my soul
feels like the most beautiful being

I wonder what good I did to deserve love like yours!

I wonder what good I did to deserve love like yours!!

 

Your Girl,
Dharti

I fear Love

Walk Into My Life
And hold my trembling fingers

Steady my shaky hands
Pamper this terrified heart, my dear

I fear love today…

 

Sit beside me today

And listen to my untold plead

Sing a lullaby to me

Let the fear in me go to sleep

I fear love today…

 

Hold my hand wantingly

And let me draw circles on your palm

Caress me in your arms

Let the spell of your breath dance

I fear love today….
