Living My Own Death

I can tell you exactly when it happened. I was sat on one of those plasticy leatherette chairs. You know the ones, they have them in all hospitals, they're easy to wipe clean if someone has a little accident. I had my hand clasped about my wife's fingers and though I knew I was squeezing them too hard she didn't complain.

She, the doctor that is, or should I say consultant? Anyway, she leant in...

Congra to a dear boy!

What a joy
What a joy
My little nephew,
Two decades back
Born abroad,
When a  guest here
A ride on
A piggy shoulder
Who used to enjoy,
To whom I bought
A motley toy
Out of himself
Made a brilliant boy.

“As per my choice
Could you buy me a donkey
Or a could you allow  me
A  tortoise
To touch
When we go to
The squalid market square
Or  the nearby church?”

Double mind

A dead rose for a dead friend.

I came across with a dead rose.

How impure and crooked it seemed.

Deteriorated without the life it once had.

I kept walking with it, holding it with my right hand.

How sad it was to see a rose like that.

Where once it was bright red,

now it’s only a brown looking thing with nothing left.

I kept walking with the dead rose,

a sad rose with no thorns.

Until the path ended i...

Love should always be fashioned in pairs

Love must never be an alone accessory

Love should always be fashioned in pairs.

For it will then be dressed in loveliness -

and thus be exquisite and most fashionable.

Walk With me At A Distance

My Love,


Wanting to be nearer to you

I am writing you

That we might walk at a distance


It is my request

That each word on the page might hold you

(As I have held you)

I write them longing to be in your hold (your occupation)

Where we might breathe a placited, beautiful sigh - or two


Carefully I commission each word to the page

That they might be the ar...

Be Still Be Wild

Time is not concrete

Unless we meet

Then it runs free as a child

And all that be still

Be wild

Homeless Love

She wanted to give love

It was looking for a home something permeant not temporary like a shelter

Feeling one with warmth, joy, smiles, compassion, honesty, trust, kindness, and remediation of love

"She was a little all over the place, that was for sure. But the good news is that when she loved, she loved big. And if she loved you, you knew she loved you You never had to wonder"

Story of Night

So you are lost in dreams so deep whole night

And I long to hear phone's beep whole night


At dawn, I realised, my awakening

Though my destiny remained asleep whole night


I know the remedy, I know the toxin..

What to lose, and what to keep whole night


She might have waited for me to take her back

This is what made me to weep whole night


Sharafat, night is...

Confidence in a Man

He easily closes the space between them

She’s near enough now; he breathes her in

But before taking anything else

His eyes consume the beauty before him

The flutter of heavy eyelids before they close

The parting of soft lips before they’re exposed

The holding of breath before being taken

There’s confidence, yes.

Words About To Break

Why don't you kill me
By the speed of light
And forget those times
When evenings vanished
On our wet heads
And when we together
Sighed so much that
We were prone to break

Let me hold you
In my endless arms
Where I will lose you
In the depth of Love
And I will find you
Again in the dreams
The dreams those
Crave for my sleep
In my sleepless nights

I asked

I asked If I wrote for you would you read it? I asked if I still had love for you would you need It? All I can think about is when we on that dock had our first kiss, Cupid shot that arrow and did not miss, How will I get through this? When you asked me to leave caused all this pain, Every day we have been apart has driven me insane.

So far gone

I’m worried you’re not okay. 

That the taste of my lips can’t revive you. 

I throw my love at you. 

But you refuse to accept it. 

You live with your tounge not your heart.

Have you counted the seconds that we have been apart , 

I have ,

I've counted grains of sand from an hour glass,

Watched every last one fall 

Hoping When it reached the bottom you'd be here again 

The cycle repeats and nothing has changed. 

The damage is done ,

I can't get this time back 

I should've gave you more when I had it. 

Every second. 

Every lesson

Dark Beauty

your lip stick must be posion 

your breath must be so cold 

your eyes can be so piecering 

it seems to match your soul 

a devil in high heels     

a devil in a dress 

how can you be so evil

and at the same time be so blessed

Go far 

without me 

I was the anchor 

you were the sail 

you were born to fly 

I was born to fail

loveLetting Go



You're a nice sensation when you are on my lips

I love to touch you with my fingertips

I like the feeling when you are going down

You say nothing, and you never frown


You're tall, slim and as cool as ice

When you touch my cheek it's very nice

Oh love is blind, yet I can see

You're my favourite G and T


Oh my, my, my, my G and T

How I love you ...

Beyond A Dream

I've found a love which

Encompasses all

My happiness is almost unbearable

Am I worthy of all this wonderment?

Never did I believe anything

So beautiful could exist

The honesty of us needs no

Pretence, the feeling so


Takes my breath away


Written in 1990

A Single Flower

A single flower encapsulates

An aura, your feelings

So intense

Intimacy, two bodies, one soul

A dreamlike existence

You caress the petals

Breathe in its heady fragrance

You need it like life-giving oxygen

Be here now and give me

The kiss of life

Alone Again

alone again 

because of my selfish moves

you was going through some shit 

I couldn’t help you through

at least I didn’t try 

and now regrets from my decision eats me alive

you were my light 

now you're my dark 

a true love story  

and you write the parts

Let me be free 

I'm alone 

but in chains 

to the memory of you 

I became

a slave

Invaded Identity

I am me

Who said this? 

So is my body

An invaded custody

Occupied by her

Thoughts and memories

Two sided glossaries

Not a reflection is mine

That would determine

My own identity

Out of my sanctity


I may be a string

Of any cacophonous Sitar

Where she creates

On my wounds

Riot of sounds

Without bounds

miles and miles 

miles apart 

you still got my heart 

the one from the start 

you gave me that spark 

took me out the dark 

I took you for granted  

 you still stand by my side

you are my heart beat 

you’re the reason I breathe 

without you where would I be 

you are my heart beat

and you can believe  

with out you theres no me 

you are my  heart beat

stood there with a blank stare  

a beautiful nightmare 

this devil in a dress 

or an angel in distress 

crowd full of women and I’m focused on you 

grab another drink the clubs open till two 

bartender asks what i’m having 

I reply I was hoping for you ..

Drinking About You

Drinking about you all night long 

Playing all your favorite songs 

You said you loved me 

I believed you 

When you said 

I’d never leave you 

I’m drinking about you 

I’m drinking about you

Do not waste your tears 

on a guy like me 

don’t blur the picture

your eyes might see 

this is not a loss its a gain 

you can be yourself again 

feel no hurt and feel no pain 

all that fighting left you drained 

all that crying I done caused 

al that lying I would talk 

relieved you ain't wit me 

this toxic love to say the least
