Mirage of Love - A Poem.

Harsh reality knocks
like a sharp lancet,

Shifting season shocks
amid fading forelsket;

Wrap of loss, stalks
like an ice-cold blanket;

Seeking nepenthe stocks
in nature's basket.

A lucid mind talks
reveals unknown facet;

Mirage of love mocks
in rhapsodic casket.

Respect - A Poem.

Respect the heartless
who teach
many lessons new.

Respect the heartbreaks
that invoke
prayers & poetry anew.

Respect the blessings
in your life,
so rare and few.

Respect nature:
mountains rivers seas
sunlight & morning dew.

Respect your being
& precious soul,
for life to renew.

Slice of Heaven

A slice of heaven,
in the saffron 
of the trees.

A touch of magic,
in the buzz 
of the bees.

A scent of bliss,
in the sway 
of the leaves.
A solace in greenery,
in the whisper
of the breeze.

Dormant Passion - A Poem.

Betwixt their eyes
lies the universe;
Knowing souls are wise
as hearts converse

Quandaries doth arise
secrets they nurse;
Dormant passion lies
in wait: a propriety curse.

Cosmic ties
for better or worse,
Love, in disguise
of lust, flows in verse.


Sweet Aches - A Poem.

In solitude
I discern
the masquerade,
as the last dream shatters
& ignites in combustion
of memories;
as broken promises
dissipate like vapor;
as frugal remains
of hope
disappear to return
again and nevermore,
to melt away
 the sweet aches
of our love.


Pirouette - A Poem.

In a pirouette
let me swirl,
into your heart
like a hurricane.

Sassy silhouette,
let love unfurl
splendid art
in the hazy lane.

Hurt - A Poem.

Soaring tempers,
senseless fights;
Sour memories
spin like ghouls.

Scornful spurns,
snubbing slights;
Sullen sulks,
moods are foul.

Hurtful words
of chilly nights,
leave bitter tastes
in the soul.

Shadows of Loss - A Poem.

A whim of a distant echo
of forgotten words
whets my appetite
for a glimpse of
moonlit nights
of shadows
of loss
of playing
with darkness
while silhouettes
of desire threaten
to lay bare the secrets
to unveil lost memories
from crevices of my soul.

Mutilated Heart - A Poem.

A mutilated heart, abandoned
but not empty, folds every
tiny fragment of memory
with exquisite care, into
hushed corners of woe
to rebuild & revive
to allow itself to heal
to refill spaces with joy
to revisit with fortitude
legend-worthy pathways
where angels walk with love.

Read Me - A Poem.

Read me,
like your favourite story;

Tune into me,
like a delicate melody;

Let me be,
your perpetual mystery;

Revisit my memory
as an enchanting history.


Walking on Skies - A Poem.

The calm darkens, 
spun upside down
betrayed & stung 
by artful lies;

She slays fears, 
repairs her crown,
severs & shuns 
painful ties;

Orange clouds beckon, 
sorrows drown,
In liberty she revels, 
walking on skies.


Warped - A Poem.

Dare I unlock the cage
of a heart destroyed,
with no hope left to show?

Can love assuage
to fill in the void
with a soothing glow?

Wary wars to wage
 in life, when fate toyed
with a warped blow. 


Follow your dreams - A Poem.

Follow your heart's desire,
and just go with the flow;
Unlock your hidden fire,
allow the flames to glow!
Let each day transpire
like there's no tomorrow;
May your dreams soar higher,
never let them go.


Scars - A Poem


The visible ones
bring silent shudders,
memories of past pain
or even a nostalgic smile.

The invisible ones
are torturous reminders,
of lessons we gain
from betrayals & guile.

Savage petals - A Poem.

Heartless dragons break
her pieces, of passionless penury;

Strangle her love like a snake,
wisps fade into the wind, in misery;

Savage petals make
 her despair, a mockery;

All that remains is a mistake
of love, only a mystical memory.


Bridge in the sky - A Poem.

A hazardous 
frozen sentience,
amidst ravens flying high;

Snow bound whispers 
in silence,
above aurelian gardens nearby;

Like a lighthouse 
of lonesome penance,
glows a brittle bridge in the sky.

Masks - A Poem.

Conning Words
in clever manipulation.

Donning Ideas
to create an impression.

Spawning Thoughts
in skilled argumentation.

Cunning masks
of deceitful intention.

Phoenix - A Poem.

Don't be 
a whining victim
the loss & ire;

Be a glorious 
and let 
your ashes 
breathe fire!



Rage - A Poem.

Agonising tremor
of unsaid Words
storm in volcanic fumes
to devour my soul.

My rage seethes,
in silence
reluctant to erupt
to the surface.

Await the day
I unleash the chaos
& pent-up inferno
of my heart.

I'll turn us
to ash
& revel
in your obliteration.

You ain't a Phoenix,
I am.

Set Us Free - A Poem.

Only an artist
can sketch the key
to unlock the heart
from chains of bigotry.

Only a writer
can pen the prose
to release the mind
from prisons of society.

Only a poet
can weave the words
to dislodge the soul
from manacles, with poetry.
Only the greats can set us
