Forget

Don’t be unsettled
by the settling emotions,
Come and trace my lips,
with an atheist’s devotion.

We are nothing but shadows
destroyed by touch and light,
It’s getting darker with this onset of rain,
Let us hide in each other, tonight.

We shall slumber to melt,
for these desires should be dealt,
But not in silence, not in shyness, not in timid love,
but by forgetting ourselves, by forgetting the touch, by forgetting who we really were.
