Rewriting Byron

This is a reworking of Lord Byron’s famous poem ‘When We Two Parted’. Do check it out before reading this one –

When we two collided
In frost and flame,
chipped and broken-hearted
we were as different as same.

Warm grew thy cheek and bold,
Bolder thy kiss;
Unstoppable, immovable, ’twas foretold
No magic is more real than this.

The dew of the morning
Shone like diamonds on my brows-
I could feel ancient tunes storming
in the vaults of my heart, resonating your vows.

My fears are all broken,
Thou love I unabashedly claimed;
Thee art the answer to questions I left unspoken,
I silenced my demons with the sound of your name.

They name thee with me,
A heaven to mine ear;
Shivers of anticipation comes o’er me–
I celebrate you with quivering lips, my dear

They know not how well I knew thee,
How well we synced in ebb and swell–
Long, long shall I rejoice thy touch and thee,
Too deeply to tell, in love I fell.

In secret we met–
In silence we danced to a fate we designed.
I revisit the fading memories of that glorious sunset ,
when our lips were metaphors of souls entwined.

After long years, if again should I meet thee
The twinkle in thy eyes shall tell me if all’s the same,
how would thy like I greet thee?–
With gasps of frost, and kisses of flame.
