Behind the palm trees
In the vast, rust coloured sky
Sets the orange sun
I tried to get rid of the loud silence
Of your voice ringing in my head
I tried to shut out the presence
Of your absence
But the more I tried
The more crowded I get
In the solitude of loneliness
Only if I could break it down
We sat patiently
Waiting for the free flow of traffic
Then you alighted
Said you needed a stretch
I waited and watched
As you took a step after another
Till you were quite a distance
Then it started
There was movement
I called out to you
No reply
I screamed and beckon to you
Still you just kept walking
Farther away
Until you are no longer unreachable
Till you were out of sight

I wanted to come after you
He held me back
He said
That's your bus stop
I hoped he was wrong
Hoped you would turn back
And say it was all a prank
But no!!!
You never came back
It dawned on me
And then I wished
For all the time
We spent apart restored
Wished I had made good use of time
And made you proud
I wished I could tell you
How much I love you
One more time
I wished I could hear your voice
Telling me you miss me too

If only I could turn back the hands of time...
Opportunity once a life time
My Body My Right
A sequence by which I live
Violating the twist of the night
To tell a tale of a life time
If I must my wish
To do accordingly
To my body as I will
To tell the story
Of how I violate my body
Without the fear of justice
Lost in the plain
Of painful pleasure
With the assurance of the night
Sitting closely
Beneath the cool
Of the moonlight
I tell the tale
Of the violation
Of my right
My body and my pride

Sorry I've not posted
In a while
Time as been
Very so tight
Or I just couldn’t
Find something to write

Morphemes clustered in unison
Dancing wistfully
To the melodious tune
Of ink dabbed on empty pages
Drawn from the deep well of art
Framed from freely forged phrases
Adorned in a symphonic clause
Of well taught sentences

Oh the simplicity of it
The art of writing!!
