Heartsong

A melody arises deep within,

A secret song that never there has been.

It swells and grows and rises up until

It fills my heart, imparting endless thrill.

 

O, fair Muse, pray, tell me, what song is this

That lights a flame within, effusing bliss?

That, gathering all my energies, decrees

That boundless love should bring me to my knees?

 

My frantic mind expends itself in vain

In doomed attempt to reach this higher plane;

But Intellect alone could never dream

Of penetrating Love’s obscure regime.

 

Instead, this song proceeds to flout and thwart

Each bid to disinter its wondrous art

Of making heart and mind combine to sing

And stubbornly to their belovèd cling.

 

Indeed, my very spirit glides away

To drunken dreams of blissful, endless day

Where finally I’ll lay beside my bride

And darkness nevermore can turn the tide.

 

But until then my heart will sing this song

That bursts forth fluently from love so strong,

As I thank God for causing it to be

That I’d be loved by one as sweet as she!

 

Should Narcissus, that handsome fool, have known

The awe of standing ‘fore Love’s glorious throne,

He’d fain have put away his fatal pride

And never would so shamefully have died.

 

Heart Song

Peace,

Young. Intellectual. Spiritual. Pragmatic. Talented. Seeker of Wisdom, Knowledge and Understanding. Musician. Writer. Human. Ordinary. Extraordinary. Passionate. Friend. Humble. These are a few words I would use to describe myself. I'm simply a young man in search of something bigger and better in life; not merely in the socio-economic sphere, but in the holistic sense. Life is not simply the biological process of living or the social process of existing.
