It was in my murky teen
That, flaunting myself, as was been
It was in my early adulthood
That, flipping in me, trysts with mood
It was in my nascent midlife blue
That suddenly I felt, fell for you.

It was in my early elderness
That, weeded was I, dark wilderness
I am still, clearing my lousy dirt
Eyes roam around, a filthy flirt
People's innocence, voluntary miscontrue
Deep within me, I know, am true
Yours me remain yours
Counted, weighed, dense candyfloss
Mine's you, just mine
Hollowed silence, shrieks and shine..


The king wouldn't always be there
The sky might not bellow its flair
But remember to look up in dusk and dawn
The king would wink the queen with a frown...
The king lives on for ever on and on
The queen pleads his return till the next sun shone...

Till eternity

How do I hear your beats
Without listening to the skies?
How do I feel your breath
Without touching the air?
How do I hold you close
Without being embraced by the rain?
I have learnt, my love
To live with you,
To love you till eternity
To be present in your absence.
