IN THE PATH OF LOVE

FOR ERUDITE SWEETHEART
(The terms "erudite" [Knowledgeable] and "sweetheart" are metaphors I express beauty and love with)

a. *JOY*
"Lord, bless all Wednesdays, Erudite is visiting,
We'll sip together some sweet red ruby wine,
Aftab gets drunk by her presence, he doesn't know,
Whom to kiss first, Beloved, longing or the red ruby wine."

b. *CONFUSION*
"Beloved beside yet he feels alone,
Soul emptiness never seems to fulfill dreams,
Erudite understands beauty's bountifulness,
Gone she is, Aftab seeks refuge in memories."

c. *HURT*
"Love is like a windy day, my friend Jose said,
Oppressively storming penetrating with pain,
Infatuation alone did not draw Aftab to You hon,
Friendship freedom respect, fully harvested love."

d. *LIFE GOES ON*
"Neither we convinced nor could conspire against Fate,
Melodramatic mysteries love always possess,
With or without love, life remains vague,
Aftab clears with grape pleasure pain simultaneously."

e. *MARBLE HEART*
"What a Beauty, looks like marble in human form,
Taj Mahal is beautiful, stones maintain stony heart,
Friend don't awake memories, incomplete romance love lost,
Aftab looks for friends, Love with pure friendship charm."

NOTE: The poem
"Oh Erudite, let me make love to you like a Beautiful Book" is listed
in the section on Love Cycles Life: Poems.

*HOW MANY TIMES?*
"How many times do you break loving hearts every year?
How many times do you fall in new loves every year?
Aftab's still picking Heart pieces, reconstructing himself,
Hoping Sweetheart's love and smiles eternally every year."

*FINE ART*
"Beauties myriad around with lonely hearts torn apart,
Sun beams fulfilled Sweetheart to shine Aftab's heart,
Capriciously giving, kindly Love expects naught in return,
Soul mends in compassion, broken hearts romance fine art."
(Aftab means Sun in the Persian language)

*FATE WRITING ARTIST*
"How to return your kindness, tell me, Oh pleasant Artist?
Independent as you are, a magnificent work of Art,
Convert smiles in love mine, infatuations as spiritual Rhine,
Why create love-scenes? Reject then passionate pictorial Art?"

"Oh beautiful Artist, can you reflect painstakingness of heart in Art?
Have you crafted ever the canvass of pleasant yet restless heart?
Depicted love-longing in language of some helpless nostalgic heart?
Has any enflamed your heart, if not, find out from mystical Aftab."

"Oh Fate-writer, can your artistry reflect the painstakingness of heart?
Is your canvassing complimented with the art of winning a loving heart?
Appreciate rose thorns in love path, longing of lonesome vacant heart?
Friend if not, learn from Aftab, pleasure pain processes heartistically."

*NEITHER YOU NOR I*
"Neither You nor I may understand pleasure pain heart soul hurt mystery,
My longing your ignoring by remembering in fashion so very friendly,
Is geopolinomics playing, hindering our desires dreams and passions?
Whenever realized, neither You nor I be around admire love amorously."


a. *HAPPY NEW YEAR*
"New Year brought your happy message in true friendly sense,
You and Aftab felt incomplete without each other affectionate,
Whenever truth measures love phases the way heart soul do,
Love manifests friendship and friendship determines love."

*BIRTHDAY*
"It may look late, but memories never age,
Love and life images constantly may change,
Aftab Knows, Sweetheart neither changes nor will age,
Beholders perceive vintage through Beloved's own eyes."

*ONE LAST WISH, SWEETHEART*
1. All Our verses are edited and compiled together,
Visit My Little World, feel your Beauty in order,
Aftab has filed our memories in the cabinet of Heart,
To respect You feel proud peaceful and sober."

2. "More verses from Heart will be edited in time,
Flavor of your sweetness shall always flower and shine,
Wasn't our fault, Fate-writer's too independent an Artist,
Creating rejecting love scenes, his favorite hobby routine."

3. "Although uncertainty continues, hindering feelings of thine,
Aftab wishes one more evening quality romantic time,
Blooming spring awaits summer Heart's nostalgic season on time, Beloved, decide gracefully Fate of the last wish of mine."

b. LIFE FLIES AWAY...
1. "Accept Sweetheart, adorables unfaithfully astray,
Beauty's charm in body form subjected to decay,
You and Aftab, flowers stars will duplicate dust soon,
Love fragrance and longing, formless Soul eternally stay."

2. "Your beautiful face rosy lips and this red ruby wine,
You and Aftab human goblets will be dust with passing time,
Listen to Heart don't confuse Soul, why argue by Mind,
Love-longing in my verses, few more moons remain to shine."

3. "We've sipped Nector together from goblet-lips with sighs,
Our red drunken faces must not shine with sad smiles,
In Tavern Aftab dance sip lips full with dry red wines,
Still season, Sweetheart share more Heart-Soul-Mind love lifes."

*STAGES OF LOVE LIFE*
4. Don't hang around looking for Love every where,
Fire's already lit within, let the love-longing grow,
Aftab's not jealous loves your rosy lips you know,
Let us appreciate snow, till goblet dries Life flies away."

5. "Don't hang around Beloved is not found everywhere,
Flames may float inside, Desire fulfills very slow,
Moment of Love equals a lifetime yet counts very low,
Like Phoenix dies regrows, Aftab searches himself in Love."

6."Enjoy Love feel Freedom Beloved exists everywhere,
Love flame in all forms candles inner-Soul sphere,
Infatuation equally explains life's complex metaphor,
Aftab admires both bitter and sweet simultaneously."

c. JOY
1. "Sweetest Memory of Sweetheart"
"Last night Beloved blessed our bodies our souls,
Sipping wine from her rosy lips, intoxication continues,
Stretching each other in ecstacy two souls became one,
Aftab appreciates perfume, ordained by Her human fragrance."

d. THE WAYS OF LOVE: BEGINNING
1. "She said, what have I done to her,
Both creators transformed each other,
Beloved in Aftab, Aftab in Beloved,
Mystical memories are explained mysteriously."

2. "Love forget me not I live by thy grace,
You are life you light my pleasure depends,
You are me I am you, love itself comments,
Sweet Soul-mate, always continue your kindness."

3. "Dear Soul-mate, since revelation realization,
I've forgotten everything my books and learning,
I am nothing you something with beauty's bountiness,
Friend, away in memories Aftab seeks your affections."

d. HAIKUS: FEELINGS AND PERCEPTIONS

1. "Annet darling princess Goddess of mine
I've simultaneously her Lord her Slave,
Mystery of love."

2. "These couplets express love-longing
Body-soul union is spiritual sacred kind,
Aftab's mind."

3. "Unregretable and lovely yet a mistake
Heart-soul spoke louder, Mind dominates,
Annet's mind."

e. CONFUSION
"The boat of love is surrounded by fears hinderances,
Help Lord save love that you miraculously created,
Unknown conflicts inside her invading love affections,
Beloved with blessings, upon lovers bestow happiness."

"Powerful love is playing with unexplained abstractions,
Have I convinced her or not, time may heal relationships,
Her graceful heart insinuates inner unsafe feelings,
Aftab can't differentiate, episodes happiness sadness."

"Life's parable Fate's twisting and dwindling,
Perhaps Fate cheats with overlapping emotions,
Love-longing and friendship may not mean anything,
Hold heart Aftab, beauty love also need healing."

Note: The following poems in this section are included in the in POEMS list)

"Existence: Longing and Waiting"
"Sweetest Smiles"
"Miraculously"
"Material love"

f. HURT
WAYS OF UNFINISHED LOVE: ENDING
"Let George Bush Jr. care about Bin Ladin Afghanistan War,
Aftab is already entangled with indecisive ignorant Piaar(1),
New Great Games continue inside heart, continents far,
Soul bleeds apar in romantic and geopolitical heartlands(2)."

(References: 1)Piaar means Love in Southern and Central Asian languages).
2) Halford Mackinder's 'Heartland' theory, i.e. "The Pivot of History")

2. "Indecisive love cares yet doesn't much so in innocense,
A minute with you lost another with mysteriousness,
Indecisive in fact are Fate's unpredictable endeavors,
Aftab's love is great, justly trying to find her own-self."

3. "Unpredictable and strange ways of love relationships,
Human-beings often exaggerate watery sentimental waves,
Happiness rests enslaved by hectic romantic chains,
Aftab fondly remembers name, O perennial painfulness."

4. "Ah Love! I wish Fate knew herself, us and ourselves,
Conspired heartache through loving letter shelves,
Are you happy now Pal suffers, agonized in pains,
Why kill loving souls, who worship you entirely."

5. "Hurting human heart is wounding one's own inner-self,
Soul cycle may repeat in time old love-longing scenes,
Wounded affections, sentimental soul afflictions,
Heart-soul satisfactions follow grace kindly romantically."

g. A CALL FROM SOUL, HEART AND MIND
"You are the special one, don't act as a Soul-mate,
Your kisses loving kindness, I shall never forget,
Remember in trying times, Aftab remains the Soul-mate,
Goodness is healing staying friends, not as unkind acquaintance."


h. LIFE GOES ON...
"Peace of mind heart or world like a seasonal idealist flu,
Romantic social or political Great Games in forms continue,
Aftab knew, you cannot fulfill love demands romance dreams,
Although Heart dearly desired, it longed to be loved by You."

"Meditating her mind, beautiful nurse proudly claimed,
I care for patients tenderly with immersed heart-soul-mind,
Love-blind Aftab cannot see, how dearly I love him,
Tormenting strengthens love, experts opinion, understood!"

"Neither You nor this Heart relate or nurse me anymore,
Roses beautify thorns through harassment so delicate,
Aftab stop wondering, some heart-soul wounds never heal,
"Nurse" knows how tender pain, with kisses or hidden heartache."

"Must this hurt continue going on so indefinitely?
Must innocent Heart be left to bleed so smoothly?
Must your beauty survive several lifetimes so eternally?
Must Aftab be punished for loving you so perennially?"

"Life goes on, Soul keeps searching inner satisfactions,
Someone may come along reciprocate similar feelings,
Wounded souls value, tenderly touching affection links,
Longing for loving friendships never goes so astray."

"Neither she forgives, nor allows me to forgive her deed,
Forget-me-not promises remain often so unfulfilled,
Hurting healing healing-hurting appear undistinguished,
Heart-soul vacuums Aftab destiny may refulfill someday."

"When beauty blasts, reciprocates love very lovingly,
Romantic ecstacies last a moment to several days,
Wishes wounded dreams shattered even Friendship astrays,
In humbleness, Aftab seeks Beloved in his own-self."

*SEASONS OF HEART*
"Spring has arrived, winter continues not gone,
Pages of life turned, desired dawn is yet to arrive,
O Heart do not despair, if Sweetheart changed her mind,
Love seasons bring anew, roses thorns in Aftab's sphere."

*FRIEND ENJOY LOVE SEASONS*
"Friend join me, let us treat heart's penetrating griefs,
Clear hurt with Conchaytoro, wipe torment with wine sips,
Aftab smiles at gestures of the delicate figured in the Tavern,
Enjoys elixir; wishes heart-breakers heal own sorrows regrets."

*FINE ART*
"Beauties myriad around with lonely hearts torn apart,
Sun beams fulfilled Sweetheart to shine Aftab's heart,
Capriciously giving, kindly Love expects naught in return,
Soul mends in compassion, broken hearts romance fine art."
(Aftab means Sun in the Persian language)

*HEART'S DESIRE*
"Come sweetheart come a lifetime of love to share,
Make love religiously satisficing heart's desire,
Life's party borrowed moments, happiness a Divine secret,
Aftab must be drunk with love reentering old dusty sphere."

*THE END REALITY OF LOVE*
"Enjoy love feel freedom, Beloved exists everywhere,
Love flame in all forms candles inner-soul sphere,
Infatuation equally explains life's complex metaphor,
Aftab admires both bitter and sweet simultaneously."
