Dream Lover

In the

harsh glare

of daylight

I see clearly

the wrinkles

of your shallow promises

the zits

of selfishness

the dark moles

of naked lust

the pus-filled acne

of jealousy

the scaly dandruff

of cruelty

that you so well conceal


that irresistible smile


chocolate coated words


I’d rather

you be mine

within the soft

smoky veils of

my dreams

About Elizabeth Kuriakose

A hectic career as a banker and looking after family kept me busy for ages. Quit my job to look after family. Once the children were old enough to take care of themselves, I discovered my love for writing in late 2014. Words in poetry or prose have been my constant companion thence on.

    Replete with memorable phrases–”I see clearly/ the wrinkles/ of your shallow promises”, Elizabeth romantically affirms the purity and perfection of her” dream lover.” An exquisite poem.
