A Noble Heart


A lover can buy love peddled like a soda effervescent
And gift it glibly to a bubbly bunny with feelings nascent.
Deed done, departs rapidly with a freewheeling flourish…
At Dawn, the lassie, laconic,sees a Night’s dream vanish–
A wide-eyed doe, dourly, realizes how her will was bent !

Her vow to chastity forgotten, untempered emotions uncaged
At Noon,recalls how a slick love-drama comes to be staged:
Trap adroitly the weak flesh hosting a weakened resolve;
The rake beguiling her to be only too willing to serve
His fetishes till satiation-in a scheme enticingly laid.

Yet, in her ruminative state, she let her thoughts chastise
Her own actions for her noble heart was one without malice–
Enabling it to overcome unscathed an encounter fugacious
And forgive, generously, provocations, however, audacious–
Charmingly indulgent,even imbruing her life with some spice..

About Kumaara Sukeja

As for my bio-tidbits, had studied English Literature for my B.A ( Hons.) degree in the 70s.Dad was a writer and a journalist of repute in the vernacular media in his time. There were also others before him in the family who had celebrated works in their names in the Kanarese, the local language.I was fascinated by Ogden Nash for one for his originality. Among the literary devices, I have almost a weakness for Alliteration and Rhyme schemes also come easy to me. As one grows mellow with age—I am Sixty–I guess, Empathy is one virtue that develops in the character, naturally, after shedding a lot of flab throughout the years…Although my name is Ramesha, I prefer to write under my pen name.
