Poem: Unknown

Jazz symphony’s ringing
the depth of one’s heart
Bedrock that redolent
what’s left behind
Strong like a Mikado
what might-have-been
of a lonely heart
Our expiry date
remonstrate no more
Fated to love you
Are we destined to meet?

Poem: Lack Of

the reason why you’re hurt
I did it spontaneously
No worry about me
I deal with it calmly
I was born for our love
Fate is to meet
the rest remained on
our hardwork to strive

Poem: Senses

Cure me love, or else
allow me to die in
your arms tonight
Sky above shall not
be our witness. Our
grudge should bury
the hatchet. When
you read me D.H. Lawrence

Poem: Aura

I build the fort
with a seed & cup of water
As I lay to sleep
champagne sky to accompany
Fiddling like Celtic mash
Pen and paper above my head
the puddle of blue
converting the virgin hue

Poem: Cut Slice

Molecules running wild
Searching for a place to hide
Somehow it will never find
Another heart and soul to mend
Precise & abstract
love affairs
Protecting not with paper
Bush fire to come anytime
Front route is a blindfold
One step. Mistake. A curse to bear

Poem: Title-less

Blowing softly when
you’ve rejected my MS
once and then twice
I, me; have been accepted


Backdown, no; never
only to brainstorm
I am
Nevertheless –


Poem: Dream Catcher

You find it difficult to take the place
are you feeling happy now?
my day seeing the greener side
inspiration comes from within
that thanking some1 is not enough
I should then shout from the rooftop
shall make amend w/the one I hate
not lately; but a built-up
reveal your good self. Please. Don’t!

Poem: The Inventor

Climbing age like you
Baby face but old man
look, you, that I still
adore. Why, oh why?
I am in love
In love is what I am
Twisting pool in the quantum
Will I see you tomorrow?
Day after
You put your
Membrane on my deltoid
Scent of coolwater
mind versus love-shape
Seven and four. You me both.

Poem: 3 2 1

three two one
and still counting
thirty two, if
I can minus a
step, going back-
ward. I start from
Two One Three
one two
Is a name belongs
to you and me

Poem: #240

I promise to come to you
Each night
Whether rain or shine
of my condition of heartache
Broken love shouldn’t be the
Between us
I don’t mean to raise my voice
I mean it when
I –
say how much I need you
And I love you so
My dream and reality
I’ve worked harder to fulfill
Believe not in God
Only me; a sinner!
