Night is drawing close over India In only a few hours She will draw Her curtains over Germany
And the rest of the world.
She whom I love sleeps alone So she will not sleep she says she is a night bird - I say she is afraid of the dark.
But Night has Her own ways And Her patience is immeasurable She will cajole her to come to bed at some point' Lie beside Her'. She will place magnets under her feet So that the iron in my lady's body Will rush to her feet And make her limbs heavy, tired
Night will tire her mind and my lady's eyelids will fall, Like leaves in her own garden Drooping in the night sky she will succumb to the tool of Night's desire ' Sleep Dark. Hypnotic. Silent.
Night, they say is the other side of day She works in hiding'. You cannot place your finger on Her doings.
She will envelop my lady's body and her mind With love She is holding in Her womb She will caress her head and draw it to Her bosom And hold her in Her arms Gently' Making sure my lady does not wake Till dawn comes and opens her eyes to day.
In Her inimitable style, She will make love to her - Who says lovemaking is about sex?
She will caress her shoulders and gently kiss them with Her lips She will hold my lady's fingers and the insides of her palms And kiss them too She will gather her to Her heart And whisper sweet nothings in her ears Even my lady's name evokes such strong emotions In the ethereal mind of Night! And unknowingly my lady will give in To the desires of Night She cannot do otherwise.
When dawn arrives Night will quietly recede Waiting for day hours to pass My love will wake to the jubilant touch of dawn With memories of Night as if it were a dream.
At work she will tell her friends " I dreamt I was lying in the arms of Night And Night made love to me till early dawn No! It was not violent like sex But I was totally out of control."
