[“Desire is not what you see, but what you imagine” – Paulo Coelho]

‘I’ starts a conversation
with an image in the mind
sometimes getting prodded by the eye,
for only images don’t age,
intoxicate like gin
a virtual world of dreams
and when a human heart
and is hopelessly helpless,
becomes sublime
and love makes an entry
disguised as desire!

[Arvind Passey]
