It seemed so easy to love you-
Effortless to touch such perfect
Skin that I thought longed for me. 
In the gentleness of the night you
Left and I was forsaken and
Abandoned without reason.

It seemed so easy for you to love me-
Undemanding in...Read More

Premium Member The Why of Goodbye
Hidden dreams silently fall

upon the window pane of love's antiquity

where I find your face,  drifting in an out of view

until I leave...with my delirium 

to rooms of what should have been

forsaken to a spiritual lethargic reality

leaving me alone...with abdicated...Read More

Premium Member King Eddie The VIIIth And Wallie Simpson
King Edward The VIIIth, pitiable blighter, abdicated the throne.
He had the hots for an American divorcee - this the Brits would not condone!
He was King for a spell and the paramours continued their torrid romance.
They later wed, he was busted...Read More

Premium Member Life Abandoned Me
I’ve been deserted and forsaken, 
relinquished and reawakened.
Renounced and completely vacated,
living a life intensely complicated. 
In the throes of woes, I’m saturated. 

No more time of sincere elation, 
now only a lonely sensation.
To this pain shall I surrender?
I used to...Read More

The Adversary

He watched them as day passed upon day, peering upon the intimate scene,
As God communed heart to heart, one on one with the woman and the man the only
Beings where his likeness and image could be seen.

Within grasp
There was something in the breeze on that day,
Perhaps an idea by which he was dethroned
Or rather he abdicated
And all this while he had her at arms reach though never enraptured 
It was on that day he would pine for...Read More

A scientist pursuing research—
with disinterested curiosity,
Poets distancing themselves—
from personal emotions,
from ‘personality’ (in Eliot’s idiolect),
A sportsperson focusing on the event—
not obsessed with results,
demonstrating sporting spirit,
Anyone doing their karma—
regardless of results,
as characterized in Indian scriptures,
notably the Gita—
All these are instances of detachment—
Of...Read More

the burnt beauty
the tears of futility rain,

on her beautiful stained frame,

color crimson runs the lines,

of the paths etched into her mind,

 

but it cant hurt, say those who care?

the relentless laws of pain do not spare,

a lot respect, a lost pride,

RENOUNCING
Move the steps, 
    to accept the dark. 
    Moon has abdicated the throne.

I am still trying to become. 
    Not becoming something. 
    A lot has remained?

Justice

The king is dead! Long live the king!
History of rulers is no different from ordinary mortals,
The crowns and kohinoors travel from one head to another uneasier head.
Emperors, Monarchs, Kings, Pharaohs abdicated
By methods natural and unnatural,
Thrones usurped, kingdoms conquered, succession relinquished,
For...Read More

The Cry of an Unattended Addict

My scaled lips have a story, repelling
enough to well up tears in the telling.
My heart is rocked at its place of dwelling
Expect not a merry word from a face unsmiling

Toppling of troughs in the shrine brought anguish  
Suffocating under...Read More

Down and Out number 2
You eager commuters
you don’t see me
in the shadows shivering
Remembering that green door and the
warm baking bread smells
A king in a pocket sprung bed
Beside my abdicated queen
And the curly haired prince who
No longer hears my song

You eager commuters
Forward looking
I alone have...Read More

Scripted Imagination of Flesh
Ardent death imagines a self haven

Entrance glowing by distraction

World speed redolent of circulation

 
Social climbers ringing out

Transposed at the gates of bounty

Advancing as far as time allows


Currents sweeping have abdicated

A constant pursuit, jury-wrangled doubt

Still born as conscience flees

 
Momentarily chastising...Read More

Equisetum
Every layer amassed vertically on the previous

Quintessentially abdicated from the next’s cornerstone

Upward from yet another illuminated chlorophyll-filled vascular vessel

Inspiring the growth of the next generation

Seemingly taxed at consecutive intervals

Each layer recedes like roman pilasters.

Tolling delicately to not topple the tower...Read More

Gloomy
I was abdicated, not once, but many times
by many different people;
but still, each rejection
drove a cool red down, down,
in between my teeth
which were ground-white stubs
of glum, glum, glum.

And the way they tread on my tenderness
is still agony, made so much...Read More

Oh! she is so beautifully bent...
she's not rock postal... 
she designed the plank... 
Knows how to avoid the edge... 

she doesn't need to talk to you, 
...but will listen with intent... 

she used to pull the wings 
off flies... 
something, she learned, 
now regrets...
