I wanted to read some beautiful words Words written just for me Of exquisite expressions and pleasing phrasesTenderhearted kisses for the soul But I could not find them anywhere I shouldn’t rely on others to tell me who I am So I decided to write them for myself Time to uncover the elegance within myContinue reading “Words for me”
You say you don’t know where you fit And swear your smile is counterfeit Unable to see your contribution in time A legacy of questions run through your mind Your heart is uncertain, lost and alone Not finding another to call your own But my friend that’s just not what I see For your placeContinue reading “Your place in the world”
You remind me of someone We met under a wave as we crashed into each other Then we spent seven summers with feet covered in sand and salt Talking of philosophy and love Perhaps silently loving each other as well I was sweet and innocent, welcoming eyesWith my blond hair and hungry mind He wasContinue reading “Another Prince”
I don’t want to today Make the beds, iron the clothes, check the emails Check the emails Check the emails I know I should feel blessed and hold onto contentmentBut monotony is a draining mistress She breaks life down into seemingly unfulfilling to-do-lists I usually love a to-do-list, but not today Purpose feels empty inContinue reading “Monotony”

Just one more time. Last time I promise. I’ll hold you to that my dear. I know what I’mContinue reading “Playing with fire”

His piece called Neuroplasticity is particularly interesting. Thank you Manish Abburu, I am honoured that you would think of me. Here is my response (in my own way) and IContinue reading “A 2nd letter from Secrets (ST)”
We’ve been together for so long that I miss the thrill of missing you. I remember the burning desire of first love. I remember the urgent kissing in the car and the notes I left hidden in your books. Come here, close the door. Let’s throw off the familiar and leave them on the bedroomContinue reading “The familiar”
