Vermilion



The broad forehead glows
Embracing a red dot 
Of invisible Sun,

In the dark cloudy sky
Wearing in the sad parting line
Of her heaving hair -
The colourless vermilion

Of my mute love.

 

Feelings surge --

Wish I could be the light
Of her Sun
Obliterating the black 
Dots of the warts and moles 
From her fair face;
I wish I could be the sight
Of her big eyes!

 

Alas! Some wishes remain

Unfulfilled, buried

At the bottom of the heart,

Squirming for love

And emotional fulfilment!
