carry your cross

and when the time comes
He will carry you over His shoulder
inside out
to crisp your soul

soar

it is not those beautiful feathers you fly with; for flying, it is wings you need.

let me bask in the sun
oh! what do you know
how much fun it was
to toss you around
and lose you

oh my! 
do lose me too.

we re

If you really want to hear about our story,
you'll probably want to know how we first met, 
and what our lousy first date was like,
and when we first kissed,
and how we decided to make this our little world,
and all that mushy crap they feed you in the movies, 
but if you want to know the truth, let me not begin.

i

the world's a crcus

romeo

I remember places by the way they taste

once

it was a wicked Friday evening,
an evening akin to the final chapter of a gripping romantic tale,
and he didn’t know what he was doing in office.

(look here)

we interact not with words, nor gestures; we sit beside each other and stare into spaces that we know in our hearts are only ours

thou shalt
keep firing
fictitious bullets
into facts
to breaketh
the sharply design'd
constructeth of thy foe
- penultimate commandment; the courtroom

I propose
you drift with me
into nothingness,
float around
borderless spaces, 
experience a certain
lightness of being
I pray not
for wisdom;
if it so came
with the tooth
I’d have it extracted

envy

live my life on lease
for a while
then, you may choose
to play it till the end

this is the least
i can do, my dear friend
to heal you

"trust me", he said
"you'll forget it all within a second", snapping his fingers

"i assure you am not jealous", he said
"i just wish you dead for following my dream"

you're most vulnerable when you think you're invincible, and you are

those pictures are the only proof she has left
of how much her parents once loved each other

the prestige

what's going on?! I was to be him by now.
oh, what's the world come to. a yawn travels faster than a smile.

never man

a boy, not a man
no matter how much I can
take on
hold on
carry on
a boy, not a man
no matter how much I can
lay out
make out
break out
a boy, not a man
for I never can

"i want to have your children", she whispered in his ear pouring out some oil into the boiling cauldron.

rear view mirror

let me begin from the start
where I am
at the fag end of my life
in the hope I can live
twice

calypso

“there came a day
the fiery red lips
decorating the lord’s bed
were caught slyly pouting
at the butler”, described
the watchmaker
“and the triumphant servants 
broke into a boisterous roar”

scraping those wounds
must become a habit;
unless, you are better
at narrating stories
from the past.
then, it is
scars you must go for

I will sleep for you
dream your dream

flippant desires

you lead me to a place
I have been before
only now
my beard excites the trolls
and they remain
tempting as ever

the lakehouse

when the pendulum swings
disproportionately to the
settling sand
dimensions of space
aren’t linear no more
you only have a split second
to decide where you ought to be

the prophecy

of toothless smiles and broken embraces
unaccounted miles and lost traces
on a country road by a tree
waiting for Godot
they must be warned

cacaphony

spending measured nights, awake
strumming life's unproportionate segments
albeit leisurely

haute couture

buttoned up to the top
with precious little stones
embellishing the cuff
and additional strip of cloth
securing the neck
is not what I signed up for,
protests the boy
scampering around
in torn boxers, just.

accusing a flippant heart, convenience is underplayed

role play

screw your fantasy, she said
you do not play me well
and it is uncomfortable being you

source code

his fingers
move
like magic
through clay clumps
dumped on
spinning wheels

does he though
bake them 
at their best..
or his?
