I’m Not An Amateur Etcher



I embolden my folded hands

to hide their cementing elements


my watchful entities feel

the glow of the fire

of her glutinous closeness

assuming their spontaneous

and enthusiastic cooperation

in my game of love.


I look cautiously at my mirror

and gnaw the nails out of their fingers

as I’m not an amateur etcher,

itching may be there in mind

but of her

I long only to be a beloved lover

wishing to see my esquire alive

dancing and singing

on the stage of her sweet and soft lips

for ever.


So, I’m ever ready

to tolerate the biting of her blind nails

and forbid my eyes from caring of

the resultant blood shedding

and my heart

from feeling the objectionable pain

as to me

it will be an effective price

charged by my love for her.








A Burnt and his Rivals



Tactful rivals are approaching

showing their dreadful canines


A burnt

remains fearless and relaxed,


He just checks once again his locker up

Wherein his heart and soul are locked,

Comes out in the street to observe his body

Which is ever busy

To turn dust into gold,


Looks at his people

Who are still extending their hands to him

Sketching the lines of smile on their lips

And then

He climbs up his search-tower

Consoling his dream,

“Let them come, I’m ready to protect you.”
