The Change in your Expression

It is your journey, I just want to see you, With no presumptions, just really really you. When you are unaware of being observed You are neither frank nor reserved. On one side, I want to tilt my head And see your cheeks going red As I whisper in your ears, ‘I love you’ in…

The Masochist

The imbalance I feel Is my fate's seal. Holding my head high Before you, I kneel. On the scaffold of sheer honesty, A glance at you I will steal. Yet Our love will die naturally, No ceremony, no last meal. In the salt mine of misfortunes I twist and turn with zeal I stand a…

The Sun was Kind Today

The sun today, shone with delight, I could feel, if not see it smile. Fighting cold air, piercing each crevice, It basked in glory, happy to be of service.

The Demise of the Fittest

‘Super’ is what they called me ‘Magical’ was how I was described when all failed, I was the one who survived. I saw my fellows wither, For they could not compete against the changing times.

Guardian Angel

Forget about happy endings. Happiness shouldn't end. Create a mosaic of moments, Sad, happy, happy, sad. Lend me some of those, The thoughts you push back Every time a fresh one arrives. Your discarded ideas fall through a wrinkle. Right into my lap. Let me be the catcher of the dreams, You had never dreamt.…
