Elysium

ELYSIUM
Long steps taken forward with slow and steady strides,
Enjoying lush green landscapes along the countrysides:
Speckled with blooming flowers in the distant trees,
That swayed gaily in the cool winds carrying salted sprays
As the sun drowns beyond the seas with his last rays

All the straws are sewn to form a world so exquisite
As the words are fed to the ears listening intently to elicit -
An Elysium from the heart having deepest hidden desires
Waiting for ages to be free because of untold sorrows
Of not savoring the glory, buried they were in the hollows

When the craving eyes opened to see the face of reality
Among the bed of roses, there was a lonely palm tree
Planted in the backyard garden of a solitary cottage
Shining droplets landed on her joyous face from the skies
Like pearls from heaven against the darkness in her blue eyes

The heart poured out pitiful tears in unutterable distress
Unable to bear the guilt of envy caused by words of joyfulness
Rotten chagrin & shame ascended the throne instead of euphoria
Although it was a little cottage; to her it was a wonderland
But for the rest of the eyes, it was nothing but a barren land

Those pleasing words aspired to open the blinds of gloom:
An endeavor to live life in the couch of her soul-room
The magical spells were her means to foster a paradise
For ultimate delight is flourished from deep within the core
Then the glamour of innate beauty is felt like never before
