‘Be My Own’ is a poem by Kerala artist Amar Tenzin, self-styled as ‘a divine love letter to my boyfriend.’
On this night of autumn full moon,
I just feel your presence.
Fragrance flowing from pappaya flowers, that make me a
I’m adorning a lotus garland and dancing like Kurukulle, the dakini of love.
You come like glorious Amitabha, I just embrace your body with vows.
Hey boy, your boy is hear with a flower garden for you,
Look me with compassion, embrace me with passion, let our love blossom in the three realms.
I saw you everywhere but I couldn’t find your form,
I know that your presence is in the depth of divine masculine love.
