A cyber lament

Ah Microsoft Word you tempt me
As I lay across my keyboard wrapped
In a red wine haze
My fingers lingering over the letters
Caressing the ‘L’ for ‘Love’
You speak to me silently
Tantalise me
Trip me up why don’t you? 
Trick me into spelling out a line
Which will come back in later times
To haunt me
Red wine words bleeding soft across your page
Dripping slowly down the screen
                                                    Drip
                                                       Drip
                                                          Drip
Your ever seeing eye
Seeing me
Seeing me
Like nobody else
Hearing my thoughts 
Like nobody else
Bringing me the world
Here, in my fashionable room
Here, in this cold grey city
The rain drips down my window pane
Again
Again
Again
Like the blood red wine 
Relentlessly scalding me
Scolding me
Hold me
Hold me
Holding me in your unblinking gaze
The rabbit caught in the headlights
Standing, bedazzled
Not knowing which way to run
So just standing, standing, standing.

There are warm memories melting through my
Red wine haze
Lucky days
Indian days and lazy days
And loves won and lost
And life goes on running in rivers
Of Red wine.
