That September

“I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair”— Pablo Neruda

Image result for desire painting

In the sleepless nights of thunder and laughter,
I craved the shape of your mouth,
where the butterflies built a rainbow
soaking in the solemn orange skies.
Tranquility glitters as my reflection
and my anklets clamour my tears.
Oh, the moon weeps, upon the last September
where I was here and you still a dream.

  1. I am awestruck! This may be my very favorite of your poems. And you’ve written so many of them that I have adored. I saw the title and got excited, thinking “This one has got to be good!” You exceed my expectations. And I don’t think I’m biased because September is my fave month lol.

    Thank you for always sharing.

  2. You’ve hit the mark again Devika,
    regarding romance and relationships
    as only you can.
    September leaves
    tumble down
    the street like
    broken butterflies
    she is the light
    that brings
    the rainbow
    to the storm

  4. You really make it seem really easy with your presentation however I find this topic to be really one thing that I think I might never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and very broad for me. I’m looking forward to your next publish, I will try to get the dangle of it!
