Burning and burning in my world of dreams
Only tears in eyes and pain in heart, unfair it seems.
Love my religion and devotion
No sense, no fear, I lost my motion.
A Goddess rules, veiled behind hair of black night.
O Muse! Give me your charm, love my soul’s appetite.
I can’t reach her, no power I have.
But I saw her sparkled enchanted eyes
Peeping behind the veil at me.
O horror! Horror! Came a mishap,
No eyes, but prevailing darkness.
Rain comes in heart and goes,
Eyes start raining, and heart beating…..
