i fear, mostly
though i welcome you time to time.
i feel, unceasingly
and yet i wish the contrary.
men find the beauty
then want it to decrease
or bury it in eternity
where it begins to decease

men see the riddle
and show no act of solving
they try to escape it with a giggle
that only causes another riddle
my longings are quiet
since there is no point of shouting
my longings are deep
because of the depth of my crying
i have someone as the muse
whom i always want to amuse
and never intend to refuse
in order not to see her blues
Fuming mind
Steaming eyes
Absorbing mask...
Seen by none....
Except
The crying heart!!
I fell in love with candlelight-
in my darkness, she shone so bright.
She danced the breeze, lit up the night,
her glow consumed my very sight.

But wax and wick both burn away,
and candlelight just cannot stay.
As sure as night turns into day,
that fickle flame will go astray.

But for a moment, through the storm,
she lit my world, she kept me warm,
then flickered out, as is the norm
for candlelight, its fleeting form.

I fell in love with candlelight,
for but a moment, all was right.
Her glow, her dance, consumed my sight,
and faded out at end of night.

Tora
pulls them in like little boys and girls
lost in the woods, in the safe embrace
Of a candy cottage
I thought I could be happy
As you would make me happy
With you around me..
As your gift for me
On my special day...my birthday!!

But
As always

Loneliness accompanied me
In your place
With Wonderfully packed gift of
Disappointment!!
Beneath my ..

Fancy dresses
Designer jewellery
Coloured smiles
Beauty make ups and
Gorgeous Make overs....

Resides....

A Burning heart
And a paining mind !!
Maybe lies are sweet
because that's how sugarcoated
things tastes like
