FAMILY
The six letter word that holds the meaning of life,
Where the love strengthens with more and more fight;

Passion, Necessity or compulsion, don't know what,
But the six letter word is now torn apart;

Days together, we define as 'childhood memories',
Recreating togetherness comes...Read More

An alternate way to start the world, the vision makes me proud

too soon
You entered this world right on time,
Just what we needed and we did not know it.
You were feisty, and wonderful, and funny.
Many days you tested me,
You challenged my resolve,
You lit up more rooms than you darkened,
The only rooms you darkened...Read More

Missing Pieces
Caught you in my reflection,
It zaps
My insides 
Like a sting from a bee.
It is not the wisdom you exhibit in your eyes.

It exerts the rawness of our connection.
Trying to wrap
My head around the way we collide,
The way you bring the...Read More

Missing December
December’s eminence claims enduring memories of bonnie, emerald rejoicing: exams ended, children cavorting, elders exulting, mangoes maturing, beaches beckoning, everyday evergreen, and richly radiant. It was everyone’s favorite month; the end of a school year, when all let out a...Read More

My sweet girl
  

Time moved so fast.
My little girl has now grown up
to enter a new life of her.

As I close my eyes,
I could still hear her giggles.
I could still remember her school days.
I used to search my little girl at...Read More

True Love
True loves kiss
Is one that you cannot miss
What no one tells any though, is it’s just a lie
And will always end with one saying bye
Then comes the pain
That will only bring the rain
Suicide is not an option 
But it does...Read More

Baldness for beginners

Put on an artificial one instead
And if your eye sight needs improving

Time
They say time is all healing,

And in some ways it is.

Time takes away all hurt, all pain, all feelings.

But what it doesn't erase is the memories.

You may forget about it, 

But it's always there, lurking in your subconscious, waiting.

WHERE DID THAT MOMENT GO

Promises expand into lies :
Is the jaw strong enough 
Three decades stretched out now deceased ?

Not even vodka removes the taste
The sickening realisation ;
Nothing paints over the stain of such deceit !

Sections mingle 
Cold dead discrepancies 
Parasites of peace
Gnawing at...Read More

"Midnight to 3.33, Morning Kills"



He said, 
“Go to where the poets go
Love rolls wet and sways
Intensity wraps itself inside out
and somersaults its legs backward
to open a way
Out
It’s kind of burning hot 
like Summer burns 
bare feet on 
powdered shells

She’s been gone far too long
Yet the memory still so strong
I feel her presence all around me
Sometimes coming on like a tsunami
Her sweet perfume barely left a trace
Through the garden I recognize her grace
But mostly it’s a gentle breeze

At the store, 
there was a sea of people. 
Not one or two or a thousand, 
drops from heaven, 
that never stopped
On a parched land
of holiday cheer. 

Shopping lists, 
wish lists, 
Christmas lists, 
and the like, 
none to show...Read More

You are hard to find.

I am crazy.

I wish that you would love me back,

If you stay
I'll be complete
There's no time to weep from one's eyes

If you love me, don't turn around

Love will be true
