show me how to wear diamond
dreams without trembling beneath their weight. I am a pebble, peeled off from a peak, fraying and falling, faltering at its feet. end up locked between the lips of married mountains; eyes hinged to the sky, feet sinking into earth, chest caving into a coffin where my heart hides its head. as despair crawls in to devour the decay, I linger between the decomposition, dead to dust to soil—waiting to bloom again.
I got married in 2015
a journey I started I thought I met my dear She barked fear I got scared as I had dared Love turned unknown Fights were homegrown no memories to look behind no feelings stood behind I made my commitment long Emotions all went wrong 15 to 19 seemed like a decade everyday looked like a parade No where near was my wife Faith in God marched my life
The poem inspiration came when one of my near dear one was going through a very tough time and to make it easy for him to pass this phase, I penned few lines on his phase.
Me, my wife and our married life
I got married in 2003 Life was young and free I was 26 and I took the risk I belong to a joint family she grew in a nuclear family Our thoughts were a mismatch conversations were out of catch She liked to have an open talk I was a reserved lot Her expectations were different my ideologies were repellent she was a career woman I an ambitious man I persuaded on my own business her career was left in a mess slowly I started understanding life started turning she became my good friend our conversations are in blend Now our marriage is in teen Life looks all young and green With my kids, my dear Thank you God, my eyes in tear.

I penned this poem on completion of 16 years if my marriage. It is one of the prized gift for my wife and me.
I give her love with the protection & wisdom I carry
I chase after her consistently as if it’s our first time meeting all over again I carry her flaws on my shoulders to show that these are my flaws to I help her seek God when darkness attacks our light I love her shades of brown skin because Black Lives Matter I held her hand in marriage, & propose this ring that symbolizes “Till death due us part”
and she got married
gave birth i’ve become kind of a relic like sun or time because we’ve known each other for four billion years
I dream of you in color
I see you, through all life's clutter I dream of you in color In all the shades Of red and greens and blues I dream of you in color You make the world that much less duller I see you in my dreams And forget i'm in reality I dream of you in color You make the emptiness, that much fuller.
Domestic life, wouldn’t it be nice,
wine in hand, topped with ice. Your hair shining ginger in the sun, at the BBQ, loading sausages in buns as our son screams and trips over. Twice! On Thursday we lounge and eat egg-fried rice, all we do is laugh and you say: 'This is Paradise.' Then we shout over cake, it’s overdone! Domestic life. You see my tears and hug me, feels nice. You’re still the man with the best advice. So take me to Harvester, just for fun, then we talk in funny voices to our sweet son. Let’s drink more wine we bought half price. Domestic life.
A modern take on a rondeau.
My dearest wife,
no matter how cruel the world is, we don't break over weak words and lose our sanity over uneducated fools For my vow is strong and my words are true the sky may fall but atleast I have you. For I love you, in every parts you adore and hate. I have found myself a woman so priceless that in every richness the world has, no dime can outshine you and no other woman can have my heart Because it will always be you
the fact of the matter
the wrong thing never feels right because you've been here before which should prove that rings are inconsequential malice is not the genius of what you wanted her to be they say you cant have your cake and eat it too the royal they are right you get married white dress and shes beautiful when she falls out of love and ends up in my house in my bed in my life ******* everything up for me making me wish i could have her make better choices that ended up with me and her in the first place not sneaking in silver while current bronze former gold who won on a technicality sits at home hoping she doesn't fall in love with me well. she did. but so did i.
