Woman In Tears

But who washed her in pains
That her tears, soil to drain
When innocent mind blots in grief
Affliction that is intransigent
The mystery that brought tears
To His hands she await in fears
But as sun kisses her naked eyes
Drained her pains, heavenly friend
As the drip passes fluids to her hole
To her daughter she smiles
Agonies of her absence in loneliness
The nakedness of the truth, she will know
That today is the time since awaited
And the kiss of the sun again
From the glass pane of the window
The gentleness of its touch
That, of course, is the heaven dew
Eyes now brownish, date given now due
In gentleness, she closes her eyes
In tears, her daughter knows she’s gone

The Pink Blush


That pink chunk of flesh on me
Is not a blush you see
It is the rush of blood in veins
That has not been set free

Passing through the gaping window
Keeping well to my side
Sheltering under the blazing sun
From every corner of circles around
When tangled threads of desires surround
I bother myself
And whisper aloud
Am I a sentence that must end at a full stop?
Or a blessing that shall be used as a prop?

What if someday I am lost?
What if today I drown?
What if I shed the pink blush?
Will these make him frown?

I pity not him
But the animal within
He lets him not see
My longing for love
He lets him not hear
My craving for care
How then will he
Come to my rescue?
For his rotten soul is already dead
For his mind is not well fed

But when did I earn it?
Or how did I earn?
When did I let my desires burn?

He was the one
The sacred of all
Why did he then
Let us fall?

He did say not once
But a million times
His heart ached too
He suffered from inside
And I failed to hear
His musical chimes
I failed to hear the
stories of all times...

ooooh Marian

your sultry voice
your gentle laugh
those warm notes
welcome me in
how long has
this been goin' on

I've been around
and so have you
your soul touches
your fingers dance
gnarled with age
yet light on keys

across a wire
across the sky
clear across time
we say goodbye
how long has
this been goin' on

To the woman not born for this love

It is a pity that I'm not your baby,
the fruit of your flesh and blood,
you will have provided me with such care and attention,
that nobody on the ground could imagine about.

You have nurtured me and grow from early years,
day and night kissing and plying tenderly.
And long before that the wholly nine months
I would be concluded in the placenta
prisoned in your belly and you gently brought me,
as the most dearest yours patient and heir of your life,
you constantly talking with  me,
though I do not understand  what these words matter
but I felt the eternal warmth of maternal love and strength
when your fingers so gentle touch to my body.

And then one day I was born in that world,
and put on your warm stomach carefully,
and the birth pangs unbearable 
turned to the flash of limitless tenderness.

And I have lived with you till your last day,
enjoying by the ineffable  love and happiness

And maybe then, dear, my lust, thirst and love for you 
appeased and satisfied completely and forever.

to my most treasured woman

My most precious, how do you?
Does Elysium dreams adorn you well?
Do you go good with the dew?
The land out there must be vast and free I guess
When I look at the empty chair
Or feel the breeze of loneliness blow upon me, warm and fair
I still can't help but close my eyes and feel your pain
Remembering how it runs deep down your faulty veins
I will forever adore your lovely smiles
The ones you gave even when you know you would die
I will keep the memories of the brightness in your eyes
As you never for once let it cry
I want to say many things tonight
But I can't find words to put them right
So, in the depth of heavenly dreams; peacefully be
Till the time when again we see..

A shadow
Then it was

But wait
It's here

Was it
The eclipse
A passing
Of the moon?

It brought forth
To soon
Still borne

The presence
Of one long 

A shadow
O'er those
Who felt
The presence

Of her
On us

A playful 

In our
Leading onward

N'er looking 

Close your eyes
In the shadows
