Say That You Love Me
By Fiza Pathan
My dearest intellectual lover
Please utter softly in my ear that you love me.
That you can’t live without me
Just as the honeybee cannot exist without the beautiful flower.
I’ve been in love with your simplicity
From the moment my gaze was graced by your presence.
Now I long for your friendship
Which shall stop my heart from aching in pain.
But you show no mercy for my state of being.
I’m the moon who reflects her light from the revered Sun
Whose name starts with your letter of the alphabet.
This moon will be drawn into infinity
If her lover the Sun has no mercy on her.
Dearest intellectual lover for once leave your philosophy behind
And listen to the sound of your heart
Which will only echo the sound of my name.
Direct my steps into your hearts chamber
And I’ll spend my days in your solitude forever more.
Your eyes shine with the luminescence of a glowing star.
You have to travel a long distance
Before you reach your destination.
May I be your servant along this part of yours?
May I measure the length of your distance
And travel along with you hand in hand-one love for another love?
You do not answer my love and play with my emotions
Yet I will still pursue my downfall into the abyss of your memory.
Either let me love you dearest one,
Or let me count the heartbeats
That churn out red blood to enliven this love
Which one day you will have
For even a poor lost soul like me, the poet.
