@you


I look at you & I can keep looking at you
without tiring – and your eyes
they’re eloquent

they are calm now
but they soaked my shirt
& afternoon
we’ve both
been deserts

wave of your hair
& I look at you
not knowing
where I am going
on my tiny boat
all I know is
calmness has a destiny

I am looking at you
your poise
your melancholic silence
& heart wrenching soft cries
that echoed like screams in my ears

you too are broken
but I keep
looking at you
for you are yet to find out
how beautiful you’re

All the numbness
and those eyes
so tired
do my rain
drench you warm?

I think we both know
calmness
from a shivering rain
can be sometimes be warmer
than hug
but you’ve my all today

let’s not give it a name
for there can’t be one
as beautiful
as what I am looking at

The sound of a heartbreak ~ sadly I know it all to well

Pretence

I am a river – told you before,
you aren’t the tree
holding sands on the bank;
Not the pebble on my bed,
Nor the accompanying thunder
Or chasing clouds
Wonder, who you’re?

You were there with me
When I was an insolent brook
& loved to turn the world upside down
In brazen desire
To make my way
I know you were there Continue reading

Deception 


So you have water eyes
underneath
brush of waving eyebrows
the lake of my rumination
– a mirror
that unsettle me

So you have the lips
that paint silence
on mine
with subtle impish smiles,
distance is our bondage
works well every time

Your neck – the horizon
past my blurred vision
failing over
your blond streaks
I look at you – forever

My surreal me
is a subterfuge of
rawness in calm,
perhaps
yours too

& thus my letter
to you
always ends
unfinished,
a wayword dream
