WHAT IS THAT SECRET?

What is that secret clinging in the heart that is so intriguing?
Mere thinking of it creates laugh at times.
The eyes are asking to look at, but the mind is not allowing to talk,
Even if mind allows to talk, the voice doesn’t come out.
Partly due to fear and partly due to desire, the struggle the lady undergoes,
Mere thinking of it creates laugh at times.
Even on the flower bed, the body will resist to lie down,
Even lying on the bed, the mind will never allow to sleep,
At any time, the mind filled with desires will never remain calm
Never will it remain calm.
Mere thinking of it creates laugh at times.
What is the use in remaining beautiful, if nobody is there to appreciate,
What is the use in the flower carrying honey, if the golden bee is not there?
What is the use of remaining as a lady with softness in her if there is no happiness
Mere thinking of it creates laugh at times.
With the arrival of the first night and the happy union,
The very nearness of my lover and my feeling of melting
The way he fondled me by drawing lines on my cheeks with his fingers and suffocated
And suffocated,
Mere thinking of it creates laugh at times.
What is that secret clinging in the heart that is so intriguing?
Mere thinking of it creates laugh at times.

A Kannadasan creation!
What an inter weave of love, passion, desire, all mixed up in a subtle way and the crisp narration put in a lyrical format! Wahl! Outwardly it will look as erotica, but with a balance he has brought out the inner feelings of a lady in its most beautiful and sublime form. That is the greatness of our genius lyricist.
Thanks for the inspiration to translate in English.
