POETRY FORMAT, 12 Sep 2016
Come, my beloved,
Let me taste your ambrosial nectar.
I have had my fill of this cruel world: tainted
The taste of misery upon my lips.
Only You can take away these pangs.
Your love – the remedy
For all sensual desire.
I wish only to bask in Your light; to
Suffocate in Your strong embrace.
So come now, my sweet Govinda
Fulfill my desire and lay waste the longings
Of my heart, for only Your love can
The only peace and happiness
The only love that’s true
Is that which comes from God
The love He has for you.”
Bhakta Joseph P. is an inmate at a Correctional Center in Illinois, USA.
