  I’m bored to death, and you won’t stop playing games. This is deadlier than the virus. We talk ten times a day in texts and memes and emojis. This cellphone screen isn’t life.   We should be watching birds, spending nights maybe in a camp mountain-side. Gaze at the stars or chase fireflies. All…

A fantasy land

We live in a world inside a giant cucumber. We love-fight each other so much, even in our slumber. She travels in a pancake-spaceship, hunting my variants. I’m huge and dumb, and helpless, and naked, in a tie. She comes at the speed of light, but in slow motion, (hehe).   She pulls my Rockstar…

Oh nono nono no

  What happened to the pair never letting go off their hands? Kissing as if world’s about to end.   What happened to the pair when they happened to meet, that smile of idiots impossible to beat?   Oh no.   Are all benches in dark empty now which they soaked in their lust? A…

Scarecrow

  This scarecrow I stitched with old patchy sweaters and the trousers of my dead relatives. I kept its mouth open so to stuff it with discarded marbles I made memories playing but now are a great burden upon me.   Each marble I slid through the mouth with great sorrow but in hopes that…

Same old love

Fixated by your existence I use you as a benchmark for anyone new I meet. It’s bit too much obsession I know ‘cause connections always take time to materialize. But I’m a little harsh when it comes to compromises, like a mountain I stand, my hands stretched, in my own path, demanding that I drop…

Love on sale

  Wake up you sleepy-ass. Turn on the geyser; take a steamy shower. Dress-up nicely in linen pants. Skim to the last page of newspaper as morning-coffee-slurp pumps a little life in you. There is an ad in a tiny space which says “Love’s on Sale”.   Rub your eyes a little for sure it’s…

How far away

Cool wind, smelling of eucalyptus and jasmine, blows as I observe in awe the craters on moon again. I am not lunatic; I have fair idea that I am not the only lonely lover doing this. Nor will I be the last. As long as there will be love on this planet, people will often…

On and on and on

  I’m tired when you come home smacking walls, take my hand, run my fingers upon you everywhere, and blossom layer by layer.   Take me with you on a journey to the hidden world inside your heart. Let me feel the widening cracks of your rigid interior, and smilingly cry at our helplessness.  …

Perfect

I wake up to the best mornings; your face beams like sunshine. Your kiss is my strong morning coffee, darling, the way you love, it’s intoxicating wine. Your eyes – tranquil turquoise. You giggle like windchimes. Don’t ask if that dress suits you, baby, you’re much more than just fine.   My days feel lighter,…

Dewdrops

You are gentle drops of dew. You water me and make me shoot to touch the blue.

Hopeless good luck

  Our nerves entwined; you pull away to go. You do this, you make me stretch on my toes. These strings are strong till we both invest. So, I moan on your undies lest you lose interest.   Edges of your heart I cannot touch like your hips. Or if you allow me a moment…

Till you love me too

Some day when our paths will cross, things mightn’t be same. I’ll recount the days since we spilt, you’ll try to recall my name. Seeing you chewing on your lip, I’ll hold my breath. There might still be warmth in your heart, but for me no flame. I’ll look away to a boring billboard for…

Dare you give-up

They’ll say you can’t do it. They’ll say it’s not meant for you. They’ll force to decide it for you… your life, your choices, your destiny. They’ll promise it’s best for you. They’ll warn that if you don’t follow, you’ll terribly fall. Which (anyways) you’ll; everyone does. Then they’ll say it’s over, you’re over.  …

Getting there

Arms open my heart would quake for your warmth. Hands would shake for I’ve lost a million beats. You might hesitate to look in my damp eyes, but I’ll be confident, ’cause I’ve learned to lie.   A heart is shaped by both love and thunder. What’s wrong with me you might still wonder. I…

Meh

This season I’ll be a little bit off the grid.From afar I may seem solid, but I’ll be liquid.You always say meh when I get enthusiastic.So, I’ll be trying hard containing all hydraulic fluid. Wires in my head tangle, they entwinewhen I look at your picture, I think of wine.I’m maybe a time-bound scratch-card,never will…

Sunset for two

I wrote a bit of something in the air with a little more love and a little more care.
I wish that you don’t, but if you feel alone, open your eyes, look around and behold.
We got carried away with our lives, fallen behind from keeping tracks. We can still whisper our messages and say our prayers.

Sound and Safe

The wind here is wet. The sound of your sweet nothings is silent. My world is a bit tarnished. They say you’re vanished. I search around the house thinking you would be hiding behind a curtain. I’m almost certain. I’m stuck in this time, on this planet, but my mind travels through time. We played…

Could be us

You see these birds. This could be us. Floating in air without a fuss about what’s ridiculous. We would brush our pointy beaks, understand each other even before we would speak, and shit on people we didn’t like. I could teach you to spread your wings and aim to soar high. Together we would discover…

Just good friends

She lies to my face. She says it’s been one hundred days since she kissed a boy. I dive in her eyes. I clearly see the lies, but I feel electricity travelling in my bones. She sucks her bottom lip, suggesting a distant dream. I don’t know what’s going on in her mind, but I’m…

Shaken

My feathers get sharper in hurricanes, but I create troubles for myself in my brain. I’m notorious for seclusion, but when it comes to passion I’ve earned myself some fame. I fly up to the moon and fall back in rain. I’m locked in paradox; I have no one to blame. I dream of you…
