Were I Yours!

Were I a bird
I would fly and perch
On your bosom
And tenderly peck
The pair of delicate petals!

Were I a bee
I would swarm around you,
Humming beautiful croons
And feel the aroma
Of the concealed riches!

Were I a piece of clothes,
I would wrap you
From toes to the head
Unwrapping the jewels borne
On yours!

Were I a glamour
I would glow and glow
In your demeanour
And remain glued for ever
To your crimson skin!

Were I a sun
I would warm you
With warmth of my heart
And caress yours
Melting the heated crust
Of surging passions!

Were I a moon
I would remain blinking
Winking and swoon
You into my embrace
In the dead of the nights!

Were I a door
I would shut you inside
In the chamber of my heart..
And stare at treasures
Of your beauty!

Were I a book
I would hook you to the pages
Of my fervid life
And explore all secrets
Of your dormant feelings and

Were I a pen
I would write off your pains
Through the blue blood
Of my existence
With its annals writ with love!

Were I an art
I would never part or depart
From your heart
Through any drawings
On sheet of paper
Scattered in the world!

Were I yours
I would never ever croon
This crude melody
Composed by the longing
Of my heart!

Lust and Longing

Searching for a memory

hoping to give life to it

a time of fulfilled longing…

a cherished and happy time

A longing for someone from a long time ago, it seems like ages now

Someone I used to know so well

I gave myself to

Someone I shared a memory and a time with

Someone always in my thoughts…

but all gone with time

even as with time it came.


At first, the one is no more

and then the other knows not

It seems like a mystery to all

and what can be done is known to none

But I watch and wait for a time from long ago

a memory from a world lost

to rekindle, to come to life, to be born again…

for with its loss, a lust died within me

and now a lust it seems can save me.


But saving is beyond me

for love lost is not what taunts my night vision

if it were that, I could love again…

but a lost lust taunts my waking thoughts.

I plead for a release like from a blood covenant.

It’s a longing that cannot be quenched

for it is a longing for lust

From that I seek freedom

but none seems to know a way out

and alone I bear the flame of its wants.

I Long For You

My heart
My Soul
Longs for you

I can hear your whisper in my ear
Though you are not here

I can feel your touch
Your Caress
Though I know you are not here
I must be crazy

I thought
You belong to me
It was all wishful thinking
Nothing is real

You have your life to live
I have no life
I only have my dreams of you
I am awake
My thoughts are fill with your images

We have a connection
It is so untrue
You don’t even know me
I don’t know you either, in person
Illusions and wishful thinking
Make believes

Live life, my love
I must live mine
Go on and I will also go on
Even without you

You’re a sweet dream
You’re also a frustrating dream
I’ll see you when I do see you
If not
Let’s go with life
without each other
