Oh you sleepless night, could you be less charm,
You I try to avoid, yet am pulled back into your cozy arms,
We talk endless, yet incomplete the duologue always remain…
He, who holds both of our hearts captive, we talk of the very same
You envy me for spending a peaceful few with him too,
Even I am surprised, how fast the time flew,
But you & I are bonded from the time, him, when I hardly knew,
We are the soul sisters, Us – no God can slew..
I have visited you time over time, In adulthood, In teen
I have experienced with you, experiences, new and pristine.
With you, I lost my virginity to LovePain.
Without you, this life, could I ever sustain??
Here I come to you… back & again..
Have lots of memories to sail through, to share
Tonight I am going to stretch to the dawn.
All the Sleep Gods …… beware!!
3.How do you fuck poetry? By Anushree Bharadwaj
How do you
take it by the wrists and
trap its flutterings in the circle of your
thumb and forefinger–
How do you bend it over the kitchen counter
and map the foothills of its spine?
Do you wear a harness to trek the plateau of its
and not fall off the cliff as you dig
a bite off the precipice–
What do you hope to find here?
This is no fairy with trapped wings, this is
a fire raging on dry shrubs,
a doe trapped in a bobcat’s gaze,
a tigress shielding her cubs–
There is no caution here,
only impulse – because what do you hope to cling to
when your chin loses traction and slips off
the ‘L’ curve of its shoulder–
How do you pull free when your knee
sinks into the parabola of its waist,
when the forest of its hair calls you home?
There is a point of no return at
the dip near its navel
where the kisses evaporate;
there is a numbing paralysis at the
small of its back like the tongue of a glacier,
and there is a life jacket upon its lips.
How do you fuck poetry?
You don’t. You savor it.
4. Ain’t That Easy by Swati Panda
Holding your hand, walking in a moonlit night
This is always just what I have dreamt of, baby
Thinking of you, looking at the stars in the sky
Knowing you don’t feel the same, ain’t that easy.
Looking at you, listening to your appealing voice
You so know that my heart skips a beat, baby
I can see the world through your gleaming eyes
Knowing they don’t crave for me, ain’t that easy.
You know that I love you, you know I always will
You aren’t that perfect, but I give you a ten still
You know that you dwell in my heart, baby
Knowing that I don’t in yours, ain’t that easy.
Feeling you fade away in the darkness forever
This is something I had never wanted, baby
Thinking of you, looking at the dark night sky
Knowing I can’t have you back, ain’t that easy.
