My Favourite Picture Of You

I like you in those pictures
Which no one particularly likes,
Those blue shirt soft hued ones
Where nothing but liquid vapour like
your naked emotion strikes.
You look brazenly vulnerable,
With those softly lit eyes
And hair that’s been breezy,
a little unruly there
Quite like you trying to hold 
Clouds of reflected goldsmear
In those wet lashes, 
brushed by delicate tears:
Not sharp, or too crisp and wavy, l
ike some blade that could bite;
Or words that smack derision, 
stinging and slight.
It is here, in these 
unjacketed unimposed poses
That I have loved you most
Tender and sensitive
Staring sadly from your moat
And I want to put my arm across
And bring that blue collar close
Held by my hand, like it were craning
A proud purpled Zinnia on its stalk
And looked straight and deep into the eyes
With a love to be never lost
Then to be caressed 
By the back of the hand
And by my nimble fingers
That soft stubbled cheek of yours
Ever so gently as a reminder
Of your own forgotten 
softness as a charm
Where more real than real
And tangible than intangible
Was our holding to each other
More humane yet strong 
and impeccable was our bond.
I loved you only for your gentleness
No looks could do it,
the way words handled
ungaurded fragile mess.
Like once cradled a petal holding dew,
Oh I miss you; of those genteel times alone
Though the heart still beats inside of you,
But now it stopped feeling for me
It seems like you’ve turned to stone

Pink Melodies: “Love is blind”

image

Love is blind
so Mind your Heart
coz who listens
to the Mind when
they’ve made a start
On the journey of
Troubled waters
Tracing unseen trajectories
Rowing the boat
Carrying those partners
who sing and hear
Only & only Pink Melodies.

|| The colors of Holi,
spread out like a peacock’s
color-rich plumage ,
make for the amalgam
of delightful moments,
mixed through smears of
color caresses and
hugs of happiness ||

♡●Through inked letters and typed poems, I am just a part of you;
The inside soul has stories printed,  some in pink and some in blue ●♡

Crushed Paper Flowers

That poem which was the first flowers that I sent you
And the pierced earlet dangling you wear now
And meanwhile all the books that I wrote or sent
They are everything now but the love they were meant to be
The mailbox full of junk, Every leaflet except your letter
And my fever from between 103° F to coming down to a 101°
You are all the madness in between
Of patience having kept and lost
And finally the unbecoming of the poem
you once became in a half-felt hazy dream
but never in real person; The taste of it all bittersweet
Not coffee, not any other brewed concotation
You are the blood of my heart
Splattered in the gully where you play games of mind.

There is something that snapped today,
Quietly, between you and me,
Amidst your dawn and ensuing evening.
