The Guardian

They stand across the barbed wire Guns in hand but strength in arms Ready to plunge into a sea of blood Fighting for the honor of their land Awake at night guarding the control lines To let us sleep in peace, sure of the safety Unaware of what goes inside their own house But in…

Inhaling His Scent

Close he lay by me, just up close. I could inhale his scent with every breath, my eyes closing in anticipation. His arm brushed mine, goose bumps forming in. His skin is soft and gentle, it tickles me. One look at him and a mother’s heart beats faster than ever!  

Secluded

As I close my eyes to this lovely morning, I allow the darkness to set in again. Questions begin to cloud my mind and answers to them escape to a world unknown. Surrounded by beauty and serenity on all sides, yet the inner turmoil boils it to ashes. So much noise on the outside, but…

The First Kiss

I felt a tug at my shoulder, ignored it completely. Another one; avoided it again. With the swiftness of a leopard he pulled me towards him. Even before I could register what was happening, he sucked at my lips. Bit me hard, kissed me slowly and released with a push. He left me gaping, awestruck…

Eternal Love

Like a breath of fresh air I feel her Moist and lively on my lips I feel life run back into my veins The moment I brush my hands on her I hug her with all my might and love But she doesn’t hug me back She’s too tired to respond but… Her silence says…

Breaking All Bonds

As I wake up in the morning to your breath on my face A question crosses my mind, “why am I here next to you?” As I sweat in the kitchen preparing a delicious meal A question crosses my mind, “do you even notice my effort?” As I manage the house through the day and…

Brother’s Love

She stepped out of the room for the last time saying, “It’s all yours now”. All the memories of past years flashed by and he ruffled her hair once again that night but this time it wasn’t to irritate his baby sister. Her wedding day saw their bond strengthening!

Can Love Be Wrong?

‘Click’, something pulled me towards him the moment we met. Coffee, movies, partying; whatever it was, we were always together! But it was not before a year that I could give this attraction a name, love as they say. With a shaky voice and a rose in my trembling fingers I finally put my feelings…

That Stone You Love

Walking alone in the dark depths you stumble upon a rock. Your balance loses and mind freezes… Upon gaining your senses back, you look closely at the culprit. Such a pure color it has, what a perfect shape! Head over heels you fall in love with it, waiting for a similar response. But can stones…

Time Flows By

It was a petty fight but I didn’t talk to him, waiting for him to beg forgiveness. He tried but it just wasn’t enough for me and I didn’t talk to him for a whole week. Everything came back to normal later but not everything. A few months ago I lost him to cancer; he…

Falling In Love

I cried myself to sleep last night. Spent hours cribbing about my ill fate. Ego crushed to bits with just one message, “It’s over” but was it really over for me? I read that message hundreds of times through the night, memories flashing every second. What was I going to tell the world? He left…

I am a woman, a creature just like man I am a wife, my man’s better half I am a mother, nurturing is my nature I am a sister, rock strong beside my brother I am a lover, fighting all odds for my beloved I am a friend, the trusting companion I am a painter,…
