She touches herself
as he had explored her
reaching in places
he once brought to life
the memory of his touch
those whispered love songs
as their bodies merged
in a symphony of their own
vibrates her entire being
aching for that magic again
for him to stake a claim
and take her as his mate


Rainbow of life

My words bind him
weaving emotions intricately
in a tapestry of our memories
golden waves for joyous times
dotted spikes of jealous green
passionate red splashed throughout
tender love blended in pink
strong yellow resembles friendship
supporting bleak grey moments of doubt
layers of memories intertwined
gradually forming a rainbow
of our life


Our bond
has seen all seasons
passed rough weather
tested to its limit
twisted with words
hurt with pain
soaked with tears
lashed to with anger
tugged at seeking forgiveness
wrapped around us with love
matured with each day
kinder after each fray
surrendering vulnerable bits
taking strength from memories
the connection goes deeper now
awareness grows firm roots
with each passing day
we will find sanctuary
in each other
with time and love
paving the way

In search of acceptance

The pain crops up
time and again
gently throbbing
in untouchable places
restless reminders
of forgotten memories
of broken smiles
by words that hurt
it is the baggage
we carry within
for being vulnerable
but fools we are not
the search will not fail
there will be those rare ones
for whom our quirkiness
will be okay


Some people when they go away
inside us leave traces of them
hollow knotted spaces of memories
that we try to shut off
stuffing them in locked vaults
thinking we don’t need them at all
even they didn’t bother to look back
or so we think,
till the memories come roaring back
a painfully paralyzing rush
ridding the illusions
of ever having forgotten them
But these are crosses we bear
for giving where none was asked
for hoping things would last
for friendships offered and turned down
some burdens are custom made
for just being the person we are
