Chocolate cake, 
can be eaten fast or slow. 
Depends on who, 
is at the end of the fork. 
But I tell you true, 
there is a thing that happens, 
to... a... few. 

They are taken to better places,...Read More

Ambiguous Loss
Ambiguous Loss**
(a paradox of presence and absence )
(coined by researcher educationist Pauline Boss)


You disappeared.. without a last goodbye   
a story ends incomplete, holding on to hope
beneath frozen tears, an ambiguous sigh
an uncertain mystery, tell me how to cope.

In the cold space,
between the ceiling and the rafters, 
angels drift like butterflies, 
ever answering the calls, 
of both hope and sorrow! 

A mother's song, 
a father's whisper. 
A loved one lost, and one born.
Close to heaven and ever nearer...Read More

When you get the urge to smoke,
Just go and kiss your dear one!
You may think this is a funny joke,
But not until you tried this one!

On the cheeks of a loved one,
Release your...Read More

A race against time ..
As her life is faced with challenges..
A tragic loss of a loved one ..
Grief strikes her like a hot iron..
The pain intensifies as it shoots through her heart..
Paralyzed in mourning..
Feeling trapped inside a frozen tundra..

It was true love, passionate and twisted,
But was, in fact, never consummated,
Those famous lovers who never existed,
But nevertheless are celebrated;
She was wild and wilful, headstrong, untamed,
She loved one man but married his rival,
The tragic outcome might on her be blamed,
Had...Read More

How many tears can one person cry?
How do you learn to stop and allow them to dry?
The holding of breath in such dispair,
Looking, searching, for your loved ones, but they are not there!

Two beings feel like they are divine pairs..
Met each other...so very compatible in every way...

It was all said by the unheard music from universe...
Their union was more than merging into the absolute...
Such immense pleasure...adrenalin is not known about...Read More

Premium Member O Death
O Death, how can I not resent it that
Your dire rapacity admits no bounds?
With no appeal… unmoved, an autocrat
Whose cruelty every human ill compounds,
And in the end all final hope confounds.
That you must come for me upsets me less
Than something...Read More

She slips quietly into the semi-circle of the grotto,
reverently lights a votive candle.
A pretty girl, her form drags my eyes
away from the plaster virgin
into a carnal daydream.

She does the whole Catholic thing,
and every ritual gesture seems natural.
Rosary beads guide her...Read More
