The art of war

image

I have always been distrustful,
Skeptical of people’s affections and intentions
Less because of the arrows along my spine
And more because of my rose-coloured eyes,
Discoloured now;
But I have learnt to trust
Not them,
Myself,that no betrayal would break me
My corporality is not built upon the mosaics of their being

I have always been territorial,
Ferociously protective of what is mine
And look how those demarcative thorns
Marred  the beauty
So I learnt to lower the weapons
But I havn’t forgotten the art of war
I will destroy you
If you cross the line

A lyric of memories

image

Words keep me awake at night
Yours and mine

They ring in my ears
Like whispered prayers
Or sensual moans of a lover
And I wrap my senses around them,
Caressing their texture
They sing to me in your voice,
A lyric of memories
In a pulsating cadence

The things I left unsaid
Like a choice never made,
Or the monster under my bed
I never could face
Haunt me when I close my eyes,
Remind me of my incompleteness,
The anomaly of my existence

An unwritten poetry
Waiting to be read.

Scratches

image

I have drunk desire before
But nothing like the fire in my bones
Conflagrant within,
At your touch
I see it mirrored in your eyes,
Smoldering topaz,
Burning it to coal

Grunts and growls
Moans and screams
We are animals,hunting ;
You are preying on me
And I am drinking you in
High on the creamy manna
Ambrosia couldn’t taste better than this

I know now why they call it destruction
When two planets crash,
When you jounce into me
I can see colliding stars
Exploding senses
Like its the end of the world

Then the waves wash over and away
And I am drained of words
I close my eyes
Unwilling to watch you leave
Make no noise,
Disappear like a dream
I could believe,
It happened in my head
But you left scratches all over my skin

Ribbons

image

The ribbons of grass
Paving a pathway painted with temptations;
I can feel my heart’s fool,
Eager to tread upon the lush greenery
But I know the verdure
is too fragile to endure
And will wilt at the touch of snow
I can see the sporadic stretches of gravel ahead,
I know its the kind of pain I lust for
Dangerously tempting ribbons of bondage
But I am not ready to go where they lead
So I look away and swallow the taste of my greed

Gehenna

image

I have seen your face
Heard your voice in my sleep
Ached for your arms
Curled up On your side of the bed
Refusing to let go and weep
Promised myself everyday,Without fail;
One day I will laugh
At the scary semblance of your ghosts
And they will go up in smokes
But then I saw you today
And you said hello
Every syllable you spoke
Plunged into my heart like fingers
That pushed my rib bones aside
Fishing out all the emotions I had burried
Disbelief,that I could look into your eyes again
Wonder,that your voice still sounds the same
Need,for a place in your arms
Hunger,for the taste of your lips
Thirst ,for the salt on your skin
And fear,that I might just give in
And pain
That I have to smile
Pose indifference while I choke on my tears inside
And regret
That I have to say
“nice meeting you”
While the memories of us
Drag me back to gehenna
Chains of mistakes and regrets
And shackles of love
Keeping me from breaking away

Our home

image

When you take her home
Do you tell her the stories?
Of how we fought over the choice of colors
And ended up splashed in paint,
Stitches at our sides from laughing so much

When you take her home
To meet your folks
Do you remember how we got scolded
For staying up late
Talking over the phone?

When you take her home
Does kane ask you
With his puppy brown eyes and wagging tail
What happened to his mommie
With her chocolate cakes and treats?

When you take her home
And show her the garden
Do you tell her
How you planted all those roses
Cause I loved them so

When you take her home
When you take her to bed
Do you remember how we first made love?
The warmth,the nerves,the steamy breaths
Do you remember our last night in bed?
When I told you I love you
With my last breath
And the dewy smile when you kissed my forehead

When you kiss your bride
And take her home
I hope you know I am happy for you and her

Yes I wished it was me
I prayed death to let me be with you
A little longer
Yes I wanted “Our home”
But baby,you gave me enough and more
Everytime you held me in your arms
I was safe
I was home

The ridiculous labels

While the social networking sites are flooding with “zonal” humor, phrases like “friendzone” “friends with benefits” are sneaking into urbane dictionary. If I were to label these phrases, I would label them as “labels”.Arent they?
If a girl refuses to take a relationship further than friendship its called” friendzoning”. This classification manages to throw a very mean light on the girl

All right lets just stop and ask,” does a friendship or intersexual relation always have to end in a cock-cunt association?”
Was there a previous agreement regarding where the relationship was heading?Is the girl REALLY obliged to say YES?
Come to think of it,if she said yes to all her friends wouldn’t she AGAIN be labelled a slut??
So whats so mean about it when she says”I dnt look at you that way”? And where is the freaking devoer to do so?

And all that fuss about ” trying to break out of a friendzone” ,pardon the cliche but a friend IS an indispensable part of life.¬† if you arent comfortable with being a friend call it quits! Whats with all that bitching?

And then ” friends with benefits”
WHY do we have to label things that arent resolved yet….that may be are on the way to something deeper…may be growing??
How do u define it when,
You adore him, respect him,are sexually attracted towards him, care for him,need him but you are not just ready for the big step cause you cant trust him or yourself enough?
Friends with benefits?? Are you kidding me?
See…all relationships cant be defined and they dont need to be.we are HUMANS with complex cellular structure and even more complex sentimental mechanism
Not GROCERIES
Why do we need to be labelled when we dont need to be sitting on supermarket shelves, labelled for consumer convenience?
And how can we label relations,emotions so superficially and yet take ages to understand them,justify them?

Lets just leave labelling at supermarkets and labs and GROW UP.
