A plethora of dark veined leaves; whispered frantically to the silhouette of plum tree, To stand like a mountain in turbulent winds; not to succumb even when its roots were attacked by parasite.
Mammoth sculptured blue bodied whales; whispered fervently to the saline ocean,
To drench their silken skin entirely with salt; gratify their gluttony with scores of sumptuous fish.
Scorched sands of the colossal desert; whispered abusively to sapphire puffs of clouds,
To unrelentingly rain; transforming their impoverished soul into one with bountiful water.
The venomous form of rustic jungle spider; whispered incorrigibly to the threads in its intricate web,
To bear it’s weight for times immemorial; entangling in a vise like grip; a battalion of succulent insect.
The obdurate stones strewn incoherently on the ground; whispered to passing pedestrians,
To trample they walked; pleading with the bystanders to kick them into remote corners of oblivion.
Dry sticks of trimmed lumber; whispered intermittently to steaming flames of fire,
To incinerate them thoroughly; transforming their composite proportion into frugal heaps of burnt chowder.
The newly born mammalian sibling; whispered pleadingly to its mother,
To feed it’s famished lips; with perennial supply of salubrious milk.
The sealed demeanor of stamped envelope; whispered nostalgically in the ears of the postman,
To deliver it without further delay; into the safe hands of the person it belonged.
A fleet of orphans in the sanatorium; whispered inevitably to God,
To reveal traces of their loved ones; unite them as one again; to bring back lost anecdotes of supreme felicity.
The articulately carved key; whispered sonorously to the lock,
To accommodate it with nonchalant ease; opening without apprehensions the moment it caressed its periphery.
My tangible heart at the end of the monotonous day; whispered to my soul,
To grant it reprieve from misdeeds inadvertently committed in the day; forgive it for all the evil it harnessed.
And the omniscient aura of God; whispered philanthropically to all his fellow beings inhabiting the earth,
To extend comforting arms towards those in distress and pain; profoundly master the art of perpetual love.

3. INVINCIBLE LOVE
Every night is empty without its resplendent festoon of shimmering stars; paving a path of mysticism through the dreary morbidity all around,
Every desert is empty without its majestically glistening carpet of sands; royally rising and falling with the exuberantly blowing winds,
Every road is empty without its flurry of boisterously gallivanting traffic; granting new dimensions all the time; to its never ending repertoire of enigmatic curves and turns,
Every day is empty without its dynamically flamboyant Sun; bedazzling even the most remotely dilapidated corners of this Universe; with a garland of magnetically golden light,
Every throat is empty without its harmonious melody; the captivatingly rhapsodic sound; that catapulted even the most impoverished; to an enchanting entrenchment beyond realms of mesmerizing eternity,
Every mountain is empty without its irrefutably towering summits; kissing the clouds unflinchingly as they seductively drifted by; proving an ultimate exemplary to all other diminutive aspects of incarcerated life,
Every mind is empty without its unrelenting fountain of enthralling fantasies; relentlessly exploring; discovering; and evolving into a waterfall of stupendous newness; as each instant unveiled,
Every cloud is empty without its tantalizing droplets of rain; the unprecedented enthrallment that it spell bindingly bestowed upon this planet; with its profusely heavenly tumblers of water,
Every palm is empty without its unfathomable myriad of tingling destiny lines; the magnanimous bifurcations which astoundingly governed; stardom and horrendous pitfalls in a mans life,
Every ocean is empty without its ecstatic fish; the voluptuously ravishing elixir that they imparted to the undulating waves; culminating into fireballs of desire before clashing against the scintillating rocks,
Every calendar is empty without its meticulous array of dates; the most euphoric depictions of days and weeks; propelling living kind on the path of radiantly blooming prosperity,
Every flower is empty without its fabulously gorgeous fragrance; the scent that handsomely pervaded even through the most heinous webs of uncouth lechery;
flooding dwindling souls all across the Universe; with vibrant light,
Every forest is empty without its untamed wilderness; the unsurpassable blend of leaf and animal and stream; which weaved cloud covers of unparalleled excitement,
Every vein is empty without its scarlet rivulets of blood; the Omnipotent fuel to gush forward with insurmountable fervor in life; the only religion that bonded all human kind,
Every oyster is empty without its marvelously shimmering pearls; the incredulously embellished globule which fulminated into vivacious happiness,
Every canvas is empty without its vivid splashes of color; inundating the sullen atmosphere around with waves of poignant compassion; suddenly making drab
moments of life replete with astoundingly exotic charm,
Every conscience is empty without its invincible righteousness; the sacrosanct virtue which made every organism feel as the richest alive; massacring the very essence of blatantly coward lies; from the colossal trajectory of this planet,
Every heart is empty without its perpetual beats; the everlasting rhythm which bonded all across boundless earth; in thunderbolts of insatiable passion; alike,
And every life is empty without its immortal love; the unconquerable soul mate of its dreams; which was its very reason to dream of an infinite more lives; more
importantly in this lifetime; be blissfully breathing and alive .
I asked the road; the things that perturbed her the most,
She replied saying; that she was mutilated every unleashing minute,
By the juggernaut of trucks; and cloud showers of swollen rain.
I asked a cluster of fish in the Monsoon River; about the ultimate fantasy of their lives,
The answer that followed was studded with arduous lines of brevity,
As they unanimously dreamt of swimming in stormy waves of the ocean.
I asked the domestic lizard to narrate its tale of woes,
It didn’t ponder even for a fraction of a second,
Curtly saying; that it was a paucity of succulent insect that kept her starved these days.
I asked the bleary eyed moon to impassively blurt out its agony,
The celestial figure in the sky retorted with a volley of eloquent expletive,
Blaming a fleet of monstrous spaceships; pilfering through its exquisite decorum.
I asked the merrily swaying trees; to recount me their expeditions of the blistering day,
They retaliated with traumatic screams; with white blood trickling down their entity,
Rebuking the farmer; who had sliced them down for daily fodder.
I asked the stray dogs in the street about their conditions of blissful health,
They made a gallant mockery of my question barking,
We aren’t fastidious about food; all we need is a solitary place to sleep.
I then interrogated my tangible heart to disclose its candid feelings,
There were mystical vibrations which shook my entire silhouette,
Beads of cold sweat camouflaged my shock of black hair,
As it responded to my query saying; that it wanted to imprison forever,
Posses for times unfathomable; the holistic form it loved on this earth.
5. FOR THE SAKE OF
For the sake of starved territories of tarnished grass,
The crimson colored sky should sob unrelentingly and; rain.
For the sake of pallid regions of earth obliterated from bright light,
The celestial body of sun god should dazzle brilliantly; and shine.
For the sake of blind afflicted with distress and inexplicable pain,
The handsomely affluent and privileged should help them attain their goals; and aims.
For the sake of nimble footed squirrel leaping in bubbling fervor of youth,
The neem tree should emboss itself with lots of crevices; and game.
For the sake of distorted bones of broken calcium,
The sacrosanct and robust cow should ooze milk; and frosty cream.
For the sake of famished alligator lurking stealthily on nocturnal prowl,
A cluster of succulent fish should relinquish breath; and become food.
For the sake of vacant sheets of satiny white canvas,
Adroit strokes of the artist should fill it with resplendent root color.
For the sake of fortifying a lock of strong blue metal,
There should exist a master key that can wind it; rendering securely close.
For the sake of freedom of mind, body, and spirit,
There should be philanthropic harmony; blending varied races under the sun as one.
For the sake of life to proceed devoid of savage brutality,
There should be bountiful messiahs of god to impart the essence of truth.
For the sake of pictures taken with sleek camera,
There should be animate or inanimate in neighboring vicinity.
And for the sake of my heart throbbing at rollicking speeds,
There should be a solitary girl residing in this universe; who can love me intensely; making me feel that I am alive.
6. WHEN I SAW HER
When I slammed my eyes shut; with vigorous tenacity,
My hands started trembling in animated ecstasy.
When I stopped my hands from shivering; pinning them down,
Infinite hair on my persona stood up in poignant alacrity.
When I soothed down dainty nodules of hair; applying Luke warm pads of heat,
Juxtaposed clusters of my teeth commenced to chatter in indignation.
When I put brakes on my teeth chattering; executing exorbitant power,
The big toe in my feet started to nostalgically reverberate.
When the big toe in my feet ceased to flutter; as I firmly pressed it on the cold floor,
Balloons of stale air got formed in mouth chamber; inflating it disproportionately.
When my mouth transited itself to realms of synchronized normalcy,
My neck started to prolifically bleed; as if stung by a million thorns.
When my neck got rehabilitated; after plucking out a plethora of nails,
Obstreperous cacophony profoundly iterated itself in my sensitive ear.
When sensations of abhorrent sound dramatically reduced in capacity,
Fiery vibrations strangulated my fists in entirety.
When my hands pacified themselves; releasing their clenched demeanor,
Intricate cavities in my heart started to throb turbulently.
And eventually when her enchanting silhouette unfolded before my sight,
I fell in celestial stupor on her dainty feet,
With all the commotion drowned forever; in torrential rain showers of her unrelenting love.
7. SHE WILL HAVE TO STAY ALIVE
She will have to laugh with pungent raptures of melody,
She will have to cry with effusive sobs of unsolicited hysteria,
She will have to nimbly dance to acrobatic leaps of the skipping rope,
She will have to crunch raw slices of blood red radish with arduous zeal,
She will have to walk upright in blistering currents of austere sun god,
She will have to smear her forehead with sacrosanct shades of vermilion,
She will have to adorn her dainty earlobe with jingling chains of white silver,
She will have to bounce with resplendent euphoria at times of felicity,
She will have to kiss the satiny tendrils of fragrant rose at the diffusion of dawn,
She will have to submerge her silhouette in salty waves of the ocean,
She will have to consume cupid mouthfuls of chocolate candy floss,
She will have to knead colossal masses of spongy dough to prepare appetizing sundries,
She will have to emboss mascara on her eyes; shielding them with traditional grace,
She will have to bathe with sheer nostalgia in pelting showers of monsoon rain,
She will have to sing in a voice replicating mesmerizing tunes of the nightingale,
She will have to perspire like a bull; while making indispensable attempts to clean the house,
She will have to break into guffaws of uninhibited laughter; when witnessing an authentic clown,
She will have to pen down enchanting lines of calligraphy; depicting rustic civilizations,
She will have to ride like a professional; on striped bare back of thoroughbred stallion,
She will have to decipher enigmatic puzzles in life; Inevitable for survival,
She will have to sleep like an angel all throughout the perilous night,
She will have to slog in the monotonous light of the diurnal day,
I would excuse her even if she failed to execute all of the above mentioned,
If only she kept herself alive for centuries unprecedented; for me to love on this earth.
8. THE FIRST ONE
Why did you stare at me with profound hostility; trying to devour me uncouthly with your ghastly expression?
When you knew that the very next instant you would be the first one to wipe off my tears; as I hurt myself on the floor and started to cry.
Why did you kick me ruthlessly with your feet; abusing me incessantly with a volley of horrendous expletives?
When you knew that the very next instant you would be the first one to protect me; as scores of burglars attacked me viciously with their pairs of gleaming knives.
Why did you scorn at me in utter disdain; refraining to talk to me no matter how vehemently I pleaded?
When you knew that the very next instant you would be the first one to sing umpteenth number of songs melodiously in my ears; to put me off to blissful sleep.
Why did you starve me of food; hid all baskets of fruits in the house as I frantically groped for them at midnight?
When you knew that the very next instant you would be the first one to steal appetizing food from the neighborhood; in order to satiate my taste buds; the
moment I let out a string of hysterical squeals.
Why did you frown at me in overwhelming irritation; drenching my clothes completely by hoisting at them your pails of colored yolk,
When you knew that the very next instant you would be the first one to dress me up again; iron the garments I was about to wear to the most meticulous of perfection.
Why did you mischievously embody the bed I was going to sleep with a flurry of thorns; leaving a fleet of red ants of dauntingly march through?
When you knew that the very next instant you would be the first one to apply the balm of your love on my wounds; swipe the last iota of dirt with sheer
contempt outside our house.
Why did you puncture the tyre of my car as I was about to leave for office; deflating the last bit of air trapped robustly inside?
When you knew that the very next instant you would be the first one to carry me upon your shoulders; take me wherever I wanted; sequestering me from the acrimonious world; behind the cushion of your voluptuous hair.
Why did you insult me in a group at the riverside party; ostracizing me for not having worn clothes of the matching color?
When you knew that the very next instant you would be the first one to apologize to all; and then proclaiming loud and stringent to the world; that your husband was the best of all.
Why did you try and snatch my children away from me; trying to possess them more than anyone else in this world?
When you knew that the very next instant you would be the first one to recount to them tales of my childhood adventures; the path I undertook in life to achieve
the corridors of success.
And why did you leave me; domineeringly banging the door in my face; cursing your destiny at the top of your lungs for marrying me in the first place?
When you knew that the very next instant you would be the first one to inevitably turn back with fiery love swirling in your eyes; comprehending the passion in my heart; and lock yourself in my embrace for times immemorial .
9. UNITED EXISTENCE
Please adorn my fingers with rings of glittering gold; with the metal tightly clinging to my skin,
And the shimmer emanating profoundly illuminating the gloom lingering around; exotically piercing through the blackness of the atmosphere.
Please embellish my earlobes with sparkling diamonds; pellucid beads of stone
weaving a way through the walls of my eardrum,
And the glow disseminating voluptuously tickling your senses; making you gasp
in spell bound consternation.
Please beautify my intricate feet with anklets of scintillating silver; incongruous golden threads engulfed loosely around,
And the tinkling sound making your body stagger; fomenting infinite goose
bumps on your robust flesh.
Please embed my petite palms with mystical designs; coating them with a stringent extract of sandalwood powder,
And the mesmerizing aroma inevitably reviving your dead bones; causing beads
of ecstatic perspiration to trickle down your nape.
Please paint my nails with gaudy color; blending alluring shades of scarlet
gently on their periphery,
And the flamboyant display causing you to trip over your face; in your attempt
to sight them at close quarters.
Please decorate my neck with a necklace of glistening pearls; cascading in
perpetual harmony down my chest,
And the shine diffusing enticing you to come near me; caress my shoulders with
your passionate breath.
Please smudge my lips with garish lipstick; rampantly applying it all over their fluffy periphery,
And the luscious color radiating compelling you forcibly; to taste their sweetness, suckle them with your tongue in entirety.
Please drench my body with emollient rose spray; the reinvigorating droplets
of water splashing all over my entity,
And the enamouring smell that wafted; drawing you closer to my persona from
Please garnish my eyelashes with piquant mascara; enveloping my lids with
outlines of emerald green,
And the fiery rays that emitted placing you into a celestial stupor; drowning
you wholesomely into the unfathomably deep ocean of my eyes.
Please impregnate my scalp with your blood; scrupulously bifurcating my hair
into commensurate halves,
And the tenacity in our romance profoundly portrayed to the world; proclaiming
us to be bond in threads of holy matrimony.
Please flood my heart with your love; filling every empty pore with the fervor in your veins,
And the essence of our love spreading far and distant; bonding us immortally in the chords of united existence .
10. FOR IMPARTING NEW LIFE
For imparting life to dead granules of soil; all I did was to inundate its surface with cool buckets of water,
For generating life in pallid patches of the dilapidated wall; all I did was slapped it with several coats of vivacious color,
For instilling life in broken lips; all I did was kiss them intensely every where over their chapped periphery,
For giving life to the sad girl philandering in corridors of gloom; all I did was danced like a clown; bringing a smile to the contours of her face,
For reviving life in the lackadaisical flower; all I did was commanded the clouds to shower droplets of exhilarating rain,
For bestowing life in the shattered web; all I did was leave a cluster of spider to weave their way through the same,
For reinvigorating life in a dreary pair of eyes; all I did was vigorously rubbed them with raw extracts of pungent turmeric,
For rejuvenating life in a scorched throat; all I did was tickle it with chilled champagne,
For reinstating life in a cluster of rotten vegetables; all I did was place them in the interiors of a swanky refrigerator,
For revitalizing life in the tired soles of feet; all I did was put them on the accelerator of a flamboyant racer car,
For stimulating life in a fractured hand; all I did was to bring it near a panthers jaw; fomenting the bones to automatically reshape themselves at electric speeds,
For offering life to the voice chords of a dumb man; all I did was bring his lost children in front of his eyes; triggering him to shout in ecstatic euphoria,
For energizing life in a lazy camel; all I did was put him under the blistering sun of the sandy desert,
For propelling life in the silhouette of a battered car; all I did was flood its belly with gallons of golden petrol,
For resurrecting life in visage of an orphan; all I did was held him close to my chest; in the comfort of my arms for times immemorial,
For fortifying life in the wrinkled skin of the abysmally old; all I did was recite to them nostalgic tales about their boisterous past,
For reanimating life in a ghastly bruise; all I did was to dress the wounds with the bond of my empathy,
For regenerating life in a dead man; all I did was blend my senses wholesomely
with his soul,
And for imparting new life to a miserably devastated heart; all I did was fill
its cavities with the stream of my passionate love.
11. WITHOUT THESE THREE
Without these three I would have run, but without the slightest power or tenacity in my legs,
Without these three I would have dreamt, but those fantasies would have revolved wholesomely around ghastly death,
Without these three I would have smiled, but that tinkle on my face would have been as morbid as the buried corpse,
Without these three I would have eaten food, but each morsel would have been like a million barrels of poison,
Without these three I would have kissed, but my caress would diffuse cancerous tissues instead of spreading the bond of friendship,
Without these three I would have read, but the letters would have seemed darker than the blackest of clouds,
Without these three I would have cried, but the tears which dribbled down my cheek would be of pure blood,
Without these three I would have earned money, but the currency would have been as infinitesimal as ash for me,
Without these three I would have attended parties, but would have sequestered myself under the table, with a pool of mosquitoes hovering around,
Without these three I would have seen people wandering around, but they would appear to me as lifeless entities,
Without these three I would have heard voices, but would have forgotten to decipher the melody in the sound,
Without these three I would have gulped water, but would have remained thirsty all throughout the day,
Without these three I would have written long letters, but would perceive each word embossed as a rotten abuse,
Without these three I would have driven my vehicle, but would loose complete control of the steering wheel,
Without these three I would have worn clothes, but would have people laughing as I had worn my trousers enveloping my neck instead of my shirt,
Without these three I would have sat on the royal chair, but would have tripped head-on on the floor, disdainfully losing my balance,
Without these three I would have gone to the market, but would have spent my entire wallet on a flimsy chunk of spiceless vegetable,
Without these three I would have fought valiantly with my fists, but each punch of mine would have been like frozen ice,
Without these three I would have behaved, but only for the sake of appeasing a bunch of idiots running the family business,
Without these three I would have perhaps have existed, lived for the heck of it, but without my heart actually throbbing in my ribs,
And I know, by now you must be desperately waiting to know their names, And I have not the slightest of hesitation; infact am proud to christen the three immortals in my life as my “CREATOR”, my “mother” my “beloved” .
12. AT HER DOORSTEP
When I was sleeping blissfully on my bed; she came intermittently in my dreams,
And as I emitted my first thunderous yawn after awakening; the dainty outlines of her visage last night struck me like bolts of lightening.
When I just bathed my disheveled persona; taking stupendous care to evacuate the last bit of dirt adhering to my eardrum,
The scent of her body tingled me beyond the point of no control; and a sly smile crept viciously across the contours of my lips.
When I thought of starting from home; her dwelling seemed far away; with
several barricades separating us,
The summit of her building seemed like an ephemeral glimpse of my memory;
with a desire to meet her heavily stifled due to the long distance.
When I just kicked my scooter to commence on my expedition; my heart throbbed a little,
And there was a profound glimmer of hope in my eyes; that I might salvage a
chance to meet her.
When I hit the streets; traversing leisurely lost in the enchantment of the mystical surroundings,
Her voice seemed to stimulate my nerves; and the ravishing silhouette of her eyelashes propeled me to increase my speed a trifle further.
When I had to stand still in the traffic; with the lights changing brusquely to red,
I wildly tried to cognize our last conversation; in the midst of chaotic pandemonium of blaring horns and exhaust smoke.
When I met her friends in the way, I gave a peevish smile; with a tiny wave of my hands,
Tried to visualize the infinite aspects which made my beloved more beautiful than her spuriously attired mate.
When I was extremely near her lawns; the blocks of her edifice now prominently visible to my eye,
The blood in my veins ran faster; and buckets of perspiration trickled down my
nape in rapid succession.
And when I reached her doorsteps; the caress of her doorbell at whisker lengths from my hands,
That was the moment; when I swooned on the floor in sheer ecstasy; and before I could knock on the wood; her mesmerizing forehead appeared before me; and her breath bonded perpetually with mine.
13. BIND US TOGETHER
The moment she was with me I shouted at her stringently; showing her my fists in indignation,
But I realized it only when she went off to sleep; that I craved to speak to her; missed the bustling noise of her footsteps.
The moment she was with me I teased her unrelentingly; scowled at her making ungainly faces,
But I realized it only when she went out shopping; that I longed for her like anything; desperately craved to hear the melody in her voice.
The moment she was with me I kept scratching my hair; hardly paying attention to the activities she recited of the day,
But I realized it only when she talked the same to her alien friends; that how inquisitive I was to hear it passionately from her mouth.
The moment she was with me I castigated all attempts of hers to tie my shoelace; portraying myself to be a perfect man,
But I realized it only when she went to mothers place; as to how inevitably I needed her; and what a child I became in her absence.
The moment she was with me I shrug the food she made; declaring it to be bland and tasteless,
But I realized it only when she fed the same lovingly to the servants; as to how much I cherished each meal she prepared.
The moment she was with me I revolted vehemently that she snored; not letting me sleep blissfully for even a single minute,
But I realized it only when she slept in the lawns; as to how much I missed her caress; the ardor in her breath that intermingled with mine.
The moment she was with me I protruded my tongue at her for not bathing; admonishing her for flooding my nostrils with a smell like rotten tomato,
But I realized it only when she walked out of the house in anger; that I found the most exotic of perfume to be raw dirt in front of her perspiration.
The moment she was with me I pointed fingers at her eyes; saying that she was horrendously squint,
But I realized it only when she closed them abruptly at me; as to how mesmerizing were her lashes; the poignant empathy that they oozed out every unfurling second.
The moment she was with me I told her to dismiss off from my presence; leaving me alone to delve in my world of fantasy,
But I realized it only when she exited; that my dreams ended there and then; and each pore of my body cried for her in agony.
Therefore this is my humble plea to you O! Almighty lord; please don’t separate us ever, For she was my blood and I was her breath; and we would die a gruesome death to take birth again as lovers; if you didn’t bind us in this life together .
14. NOW OR NEVER
When I thought of philandering with her high on the summit of the Himalayas; feeling the icy winds dash past my stomach,
All that happened in the end was that; I ended up taking her out for a cup of sedate tea; the instant I met her.
When I thought of kissing her wildly on her cheeks; making exotic noises while executing the same,
All that happened in the end was that; I found myself seated in front of her in the bullock cart; playing a pack of cards.
When I thought of drenching myself with her; profusely in the rain,
All that happened in the end was that; I found myself crunching chocolate biscuits staring desperately into open space.
When I thought of embedding a redolent rose in her hair; letting the dense ensemble of flower tickle me voraciously on my lashes,
All that happened in the end was that; I found myself watering the lawns with her; the rusty lawn sprinkler sedately held in my hands.
When I thought of bathing under the fountains with her; splashing her visage with tangy cold drink diffusing from my mouth,
All that happened in the end was that; I found myself shopping with her in the grocery store; searching frantically for a pack of soggy matchsticks.
When I thought of painting her enamouring visage; instructing her to sit mute without even budging a trifle from her place,
All that happened in the end was that; I found myself lighting a candle in the church; intensely listening to the admonitions of the priest.
When I thought of applying honey on her lips; before greedily slurping the same from the periphery with my tongue,
All that happened in the end was that; I found myself tenaciously pulverizing medicinal herbs; to blend in the water she had to consume after her nocturnal supper.
When I thought of embracing her tightly; in an ambience encapsulated with walls of frozen ice,
All that happened in the end was that; she slapped me thunderously on my chin; for gawking at her open eyed in brilliant sunlight and afternoon public.
When I thought of blowing air from my nostrils into her ears; flooding them mercilessly with melodious tunes emanating from my mouth,
All that happened in the end was that; she engaged me in the task of swapping every mosquito hovering around her face.
But it was only when I thought of proposing her; audaciously proclaiming in front of the society as to how much I loved her,
Was that she smiled at me for the first time; fell in a celestial stupor on my feet; running her hands wildly across the strands of my hair; tears of joy gushing down her cheeks and at the same time staring deeply into my eyes; scolding me for hiding my love till today; telling me candidly that it could have been now or never .
15. WHAT WAS THERE IN THAT BODY
What was there in those eyes; that drowned me in an ocean of uncontrollable ecstasy?
What was there in those lips; that made me stare in spell bound consternation for marathon hours on the trot?
What was there in those feet; that made me swoon in a bedraggled heap on the ground?
What was there in those hands; that made me long for a caress that could last till eternity?
What was there in that nose; that made me crave for oceans of moist breath taking me unaware in their swirl?
What was there in that voice; that made me wholesomely oblivious to the passing of time?
What was there in that palm; that made me see my destiny explicitly in its mystical lines?
What was there in those fingers; that flooded my mouth with a taste more sweeter than the wildest of nectar?
What was there in that neck; that made me feel incredibly lost even in the sedative solitude of the night?
What was there in those ears; that made me dream like a prince even though I was poor?
What was there in that tongue; that made me remain thirsty even under blistering heat of sun and umpteenth volcano’s?
What was there in those teeth; that made me perceive night and day about
the enchantment in smile?
What was there in those eyelashes; that made me hide my reflection within; even in the most tumultuous of storms?
What was there in that chest; that made me go berserk every unleashing minute
for an everlasting embrace?
What was there in those nails; that made me shiver like an infant even in scorching heat of summer?
What was there in that belly; that made me trip head on the mud; even while I was walking in spiked shoes?
What was there in those hair; that strangulated my throat; made me gasp for air with every contraction of my heart?
What was there in that blood; that made my pulse race a million times faster each time I felt it running through the veins?
And what was there in that body; that propelled me to love each time I saw it; that triggered my existence till date today; and for many more generations to unfurl hereafter?
16. WHEN YOU BREATHED
When you smiled; it seemed that a million lotuses fell on the parched territory of earth,
When you cried; the waves in the ocean clashed flirtatiously with the blazing chain of rocks,
When you sang; the birds in the jungle forgot to chirp and a celestial
silence descended all over,
When you ate; the most abhorrent appearing logs of charcoal seemed like golden nectar,
When you wrote; the most nonchalant of literature seemed like a string of shimmering pearls,
When you danced; all gods in heaven gathered to watch in stunned silence,
When you yawned; there seemed to be a valley of eternal bliss right down your throat,
When you were naughty; it seemed as if the most heinous of criminals around
you were small children,
When you perspired; it seemed as if the melody in your aroma pacified the most tumultuous of turmoil,
When you winked; it seemed as if springs of white froth gushed down the pristine slopes in lazy tandem,
When you walked; it seemed as if a cluster of fairies had fallen from the sky to permanently inhabit the earth,
When you slept; it seemed that the most glittering of gold was showered
unrelentingly from the cosmos,
When you bathed; it seemed as if shriveled and decayed beauty in this world had taken a new birth,
When you shivered; it seemed as if the mesmerizing night had forgotten to unveil into the sweltering day,
When you sneezed; it seemed as if lost charm and exuberance flooded back into the atmosphere,
When you blushed; it seemed as if silver bolts of lightening plummeted from the sky igniting multiple fires even in frozen water,
When you screamed; it seemed as if the profoundly gloomy ambience exploded in fury; to illuminate the blackness,
When you stared; it seemed that all the uncouth and barbaric activities were replaced by unparalleled innocence and empathy,
And when you breathed; I felt that I was re-born; and as each breath of yours caressed my skin; I felt myself more and more entangled in the bonds of your
17. I DIDN’T NEED BREATH TO LIVE
I didn’t need blazing fires; as I had her flesh in intimate contact to ignite my yearning desires,
I didn’t need the turbulent ocean; as I had the river of her ecstatic tears
cascading down my neck,
I didn’t need the poignantly smelling lotus; as I had her luscious lips to kiss unrelentingly and feast upon,
I didn’t need mesmerizing sights of the world viewing through my binoculars; as I found all beauty and fantasy embedded in her curled eyelashes,
I didn’t need water to drink; as the last drop of my thirst was quenched with her mere caress,
I didn’t need a spurious sequence of laughter; as her innocuous gestures when she played; made me have the smile of my life,
I didn’t need dreams to inundate my mind; as my ultimate reservoir of imagination lay encapsulated in her hands,
I didn’t need food to eat; as the profound empathy in her expressions made me entirely oblivious to both morning and night,
I didn’t need enchanting sounds; as the melody in her voice pacified infinite infernos exploding in my mind,
I didn’t need time to be acquainted with; as the enamoring complexion of her lids had cast a mystical spell on my life,
I didn’t need brilliant sunlight to shimmer across my face; as I had the austere rays emanating from her persona to enlighten my darkness,
I didn’t need a couch impregnated with pure gold to sleep upon; as I had the moistness in her lap to succumb to an everlasting slumber,
I didn’t need salubrious vitamins to resurrect my shattered senses; as I had the tenacity of her love to guide me through every step I took,
I didn’t need valleys laden with blossoming flowers to rekindle my soul; as I had the enigmatic passageway down her throat to stare at in open mouthed astonishment; till eternity,
I didn’t need trees with dense foliage to sequester me from the sweltering heat; as I had her fascinating shadow; to scrape out every bit of fatigue from my tired bones,
I didn’t need exotic perfumes extracted from a mountain of musk; as I had her sweat to inhale; which sent me right back into my innocent childhood,
I didn’t need magicians to decipher my future and fate; as I clearly saw my destiny prominently in the lines of her soft palms,
I didn’t need intoxicating cans of beer; as the sensuousness of her body stimulated my mind more than a barrel of alcohol,
And I didn’t need breath to exist; as the bond of her romance had ensured that I would live beyond time; immortalize the essence of sharing for boundless decades to come .

19. PLEASE FORGIVE ME
I know I may have pinched you several times; causing you to wince in contorted agony,
I know I may have pummeled you to the ground; hurling at you a volley of poignant abuse,
I know I may have kicked you in the stomach; made a face at you resembling a hideous demon,
I know I may have splashed your face with orange juice; soiling your impeccable clothing with infinite blemishes of black paint,
I know I may have stared at you in animosity; fomenting you to ooze tears down your glistening cheeks,
I know I may have made you trip; poking my large toe deliberately in your way,
I know I may have scowled at you umpteenth number of times; tickling you in your ribs when you didn’t want it the slightest,
I know I may have shrug off the breakfast plate inutter disdain; dictating you thunderously to make it all over again,
I know I may have sprinkled upon you freezing water; inundating your persona with frozen ice in the peak of winter,
I know I may have used my pen to thrash you; more than I might have used it to write literature,
I know I may have philandered with several girls; giving them a peck on their cheeks right in front of your eyes,

And I know I may have behaved like a perfect brute all these years; rebuking you on many occasions in front of the society,
But then; they were those moments when the human in me had metamorphosed into a savage animal; the tyranny of earning had crippled the innocent child in me;
annihilating all my perceptions about romance and bondage,
While let me candidly tell you today; that I have always loved you; valued your caress more than any other object existing in this world; have longed for your company more than the Sun has longed to shine; and I know that perhaps you wouldn’t even prefer to look at me in this lifetime of mine; but I will still say this; as I love you more than myself; that please forgive me .
20. UTTERLY HELPLESS
The cow; knew that the crow sitting on its back was a treacherous nuisance; tickling it on umpteenth number of places; when it actually wanted to blissfully rest,
But in the end she found herself completely helpless; as no matter how hard she swished her tail; the bird kept sitting; without incorrigibly budging even an inch.
The Majestic edifice standing tall on the road; knew that tremors occurring during the earthquake werereally unwanted,
But in the end it was helpless; as they inevitably kept coming; and despite the most severest of its resilience; weakened its foundations beyond safety limits.
The gargantuan Oak tree; knew that the snakes crawling on its formidable periphery; disrupted its serenity and tranquil shade,
But in the end it was miserably helpless; for as the years unveiled its crevices grew; and the hooded monsters kept proliferating in dozens; although it tried its best to kill them with its juice.
The ocean sprawled over a billion kilometers of territory; knew that the choppy waves rising high; broke its mystical spell and dreams,
But in the end it was completely helpless; as the harder it tried the more the waters swirled; and a tumultuous storm enveloped the entire surface; causing the froth erupt towards the sky.
The granules of earth sprinkled all around; knew that ploughing them would give them agony; massacre their virginity beyond their capacity to redeem,
But in the end they found themselves disastrously helpless; as man kept digging them with greed in his eyes; till the time he struck pitchers of glittering gold.
The hot cakes sizzling on the grills; knew that the bees hovering around would painstakingly devour their sweetness; render their sponginess with
innumerable number of holes,
But in the end they were helpless; as try as hard as they could; the flies kept buzzing feasting on their appetizing surface; till the time they satisfied their gluttony.
The tongue suspended in chamber of the mouth; knew that its demeanor would be reduced to rotten garbage; the instant it blurted out abuses,
But in the end it was totally helpless; as even after resolving in the name of Almighty lord; it exhaled out the most abashing of bad words; when provoked by the passing pedestrian.
The clusters of blossoming rose; knew that the parasites clambering up their stalk would render them fragile and lifeless,
But in the end they were wholesomely helpless; as the more they tried to defend themselves with their sparse thorns; the more the army of leeches enjoyed in
sucking them to emptiness.
And I as a poet; knew that working in office with a monotonous bunch of morons; would vanquish all my creativity; annihilate the passionate fantasy revolving in my mind from its very roots,
But in the end; I found myself stumbling at every instant of life and utterly helpless; as; If I wanted to survive in this uncouth society; I had to substitute fantasy with bulky checkbooks; chop my dreams in entirety with the sword of commercialism; in order to feed me and my wife with sumptuous food; rise with her early at dawn; to confront a new tomorrow.
21. HARD TO CRACK
No matter how hard I banged the tortoise shell; it simply refrained to split,
No matter how vehemently I struck the human tooth; it just didn’t chap at its edge,
No matter from how high I threw the coconut down; it didn’t display even a single scratch on its shell,
No matter how tenaciously I crushed the human skull; it simply didn’t show any
signs of snapping apart,
No matter how passionately I hammered the elephant tusk; it still remained as stoical as white ice,
No matter how stubbornly I boxed the punching bag; it didn’t gasp the slightest; even after infinite punches of mine,
No matter how ruthlessly I kicked the diamond ceiling; it still seemed to have retained its perpetual shine,
No matter how many harpoons I shot at the shark; it still came back hostile and alive from beneath the waters,
No matter how much pressure I exerted on the spring; it still rebounded back with thunderbolt velocity,
No matter how viciously I thrashed then whip against the wall; it still didn’t seem to have lost; even an iota of its sting,
No matter how many holes I drilled in the base of the iron ship; it simply
didn’t appear to sink,
No matter how hard I tried to twist the bars of the prison; they kept standing like a fortress in front of my eyes,
No matter how resiliently I tried to control the storm waters from rising; they kept swelling up; evolving into a flood like never before,
No matter how fervently I tried to chew sweets of steel; the entire armory of my teeth broke like frigid matchsticks; but the biscuits retained their silvery polish,
No matter how badly I pierced the dinosaurs eye; it didn’t blink the slightest; shone brilliantly under the Sun,
No matter how wildly I squelched the walnut in my palms; it simply didn’t alter its shape the slightest,
No matter how insanely I hammered the walls of my conscience; it simply
didn’t surrender its ideals,
No matter how pertinently I tried to control my dreams; they kept growing relentlessly; fantasizing about the entire universe every second,
And No matter how doggedly I tried to break my heart; it throbbed even more violently for the person it loved; cried incessantly for the girl it wanted to imprison in the vice like swirl of its romance; forever & ever & ever .
The scorched roots of grass sprawling wildly on the soil; were greedy to drink monstrous sized dew drops,
The car lying dilapidated and burnt in the garage; were greedy to drink gallons of golden petrol,
The eye gruesomely dry after the day’s work; were greedy to drink a bottle of tears,
The scientist working ingeniously all round the clock; was greedy to drink testubes bubbling with brilliant dyes,
The bees buzzing irascibly around the rose; were greedy to drink its sweet honey,

The mosquitoes feasting on the rotten pile of vegetables; were greedy to drink pure blood,

The prisoner’s ears lying in solitary confinement for years; were greedy to drink the ecstatic melody in sound,
The penguins wandering around in dazzling sunlight; were greedy to drink frozen ice,
The thorny cactus sprouting in abundance from the jagged terrain; were greedy to drink a vase full of sweet water,
The lips severely agonized and gloomy; were greedy to drink a fountain of uninhibited passion,
The walls of the century old grave; were greedy to drink thick coats of rich paint,
The unfathomably deep crevices in the valley; were greedy to drink strident echo’s,
The twin pair of nostrils in every man; were greedy to drink a tunnel full of fresh air,
The matchstick lying soggy and frigid in a pond of water; was greedy to drink hostile flames,
And my heart palpitating at lightening speeds; was greedy to drink immortal love; drown in it for eternity; while drinking the same .
23. I THINK I AM IN LOVE
What was this O! lord; that my lips refrained to speak; sung mystical tunes instead while walking on the streets?
What was this O! lord; that my fingers incorrigibly refused to write; drawing incoherent shapes in the mud instead?
What was this O! lord; that my eyes stared wildly in open space; instead of shutting down under the blistering Sun?
What was this O! lord; that the hair on my scalp itched incessantly; as if attacked by a thousand ants?
What was this O! lord; that I forgot to have my afternoon meals; when normally I was the first one to finish food in our family?

the same fever as millions of my kind are struck every day; O! yes I think I am in love .
24. BOTH ME AND MY WIFE
It was impossible to clap with a single palm; no matter how turbulently I swished it in the air,
So in order that sound be produced and noise be heard; both my palms needed to come abysmally close and strike.
It was impossible to run with a single leg; no matter how much passion I ignited in my eyes,
So in order to win the race with nonchalant ease; both my legs needed to caress the ground; and then sprint like a panther towards the finishing line.
It was impossible to see with one eye; no matter how far I stretched and revolved it without respite,
So in order to sight the entire universe; profoundly admire mesmerizing beauty on this planet; both my eyes needed to move in harmony; and capture living organisms alive.
It was impossible to hear with a single ear; no matter how alert I kept it all throughout the night,
So in order to catch each intricate voice existing; coherently decipher the mystical tunes of life; both my ears needed to pop up in exhilaration; hear the far cries before anyone else might.
It was impossible to breathe with a single nostril; no matter how hard I tried to avoid being suffocated; even with gusty bellow of wind blowing by,
So in order to blissfully inhale pristine air in vicinity; sleep like a king under the stars; both my nostrils needed to suckle in breeze and blend with the ravishing night.
It was impossible to eat food from only one corner of the mouth; no matter how incorrigibly I tried to used teeth protruding from that side,
So in order to chew the most succulent of meals; digest the most voluptuous of leaf; both my cheeks needed to participate in the process; devouring food; water and sweets with supreme contentment.
It was impossible to write with one finger; no matter the infinite number of times I tried to hoist the jewel studded pen,
So in order to emboss boundless lines of literature; inundate every nook and cranny of white paper with exquisite calligraphy; both my fingers needed to dance in synchronization; race with pleasure to express their might.
It was impossible to kiss with only one lip; no matter how dexterously I tried to rub it against my beloved,
So in order to trigger off flames of desire; exult in the aisles of fiery romance; both my lips needed to move in fervor; explore the sweetness and taste of offered by life.
And It was impossible for me on my own to evolve another of my kind; no matter how many prayers and penance I offered to the Almighty,
So in order to procreate my progeny; and keep the world forever moving; both me and my wife needed to blend together into chords of perpetual love; to ensure that the world never ended; and there was always someone at some point in time; breathing alive .

More passionate than the beating of my heart; the ferocity with which it throbbed all day and night,
More faster than the blink of my eye; the revitalizing moisture it provided to my rotund eyeball,

28. THE HEART STAYED YOUNG FOREVER
The flowers blossoming in the fields; withered away as the soil on which they stood was thoroughly stripped of water,
The leaves of the colossal tree disdainfully shriveled and fell; as the onset of autumn took its toll on the surrounding,
The mesmerizing rivers tumbling in fury from the mountains; shrunk to a mere trickle as the Sun radiated its hostile rays in full fury,
The blazing stream of lava which fulminated in tumultuous agony from the ground; cooled as a few days elapsed; and with the drifting of the placid winds,
The ominous looking black clouds reverberated thunderously in the sky; but after a while the rain pelting down reduced its agony; as the Sun filtered passageways of crystalline blue amidst all vicious dark,
The delectable and freshly painted exteriors of the edifice; slowly started to develop shades of pathetic yellow; as they blended with the smoke; and weren’t
cleaned meticulously every day,
The gargantuan shadows of the wandering giant; seemed to loose their entity completely as the stringent light of the day was encroached completely by night,
The mammoth cubes of frozen ice; shamefully metamorphosed into a pond of water; under sweltering heat of fiery afternoon,
The monstrous Bull ploughing valiantly through the fields all his life; one day found himself seated by the riverside; not even having the capacity to shrug away the flies sitting right on his nose; as the gradual onset of age; had exhausted every ounce of his stamina that he once upon a time proudly possessed,
The dolphin that once swam merrily in the heart of the sea; found itself now kissing the shores; as it felt supremely weary to swim,
The magnificent palace which once used to be the pride of the Royal Kings and monarchs; was now inhabited only with a battalion of cobwebs and dilapidated
space; as the years and centuries unveiled by,
The biscuits of silver when extracted raw from deep within the crevices in the earth emanated a scintillating shine and shimmer; but the same transited to cheap nuggets of coal; after being used for several decades; and blending with human oil and perspiration,
The photograph of the individual looked absolutely astounding when snapped on the first day; but the same resembled a ghost when sighted after infinite fortnights; with obnoxious crusts of dust changing him in drastic entirety,
The face of the fairy was dainty and stupendously sweet as she descended from the skies; but she hardly had the power to speak; with scores of bones protruding from her cheeks; as she lived for more than a century on planet earth,
The innocuous wails of an infant were profoundly enamoring to hear when it was just born, however they converted into a sonorous and hoarse; shooing every one away from him; a few months down the line; as he began to walk and joined college,
The battalion of vegetables appeared young and robust as they were just plucked fresh from the sprawling farm; they however turned rotten, black and blue; with an incredibly foul odor dissipating from their body; as the previous day now unfurled into the new dawn,
The dead mans body buried under the ground was embodied with lots of flesh when freshly cremated; but if you dug it up again after a few years; all that was now retrievable was just a pair of bones,
And everything seemed to wither with age; shrivel and shrink as time sped by; but there was just a single thing that gained more impetus with the passing second; got more passionate as even as everything encompassing it seemed to abdicate life; palpitated more violently as the tyranny of age crept by, or shall we say ” the heart stayed young forever ”
29. YOUR VELVETY SHADOW
I was profoundly enchanted by her; relishing her soft caress till times immemorial,
I felt privileged by her presence; everytime she drifted with me standing in open mouthed consternation,
I stared at her unrelentingly all night; even as the last person on this planet had gone off to sleep,
I admired her relentlessly till my last breath; although my voice had become horrendously hoarse; and my tongue incorrigibly refrained to swish an inch further,
I kissed her infinite number of times; with smooch of mine; igniting unfathomable desires in me; to do it all over again,
I was drowning in her honey coated eyes; with the mascara in her lashes casting over me a spell impossible to break,
I clasped my hands securely over her demeanor; blocking every possible source of acerbic light striking her dainty skin,
I pacified all the uncouth pangs of hunger arising in my stomach; as I was lost in cognizing my destiny in the intricate lines of my palms,
I whistled incessantly as she glided by; flooding her ears with the inferno blazing in my tunes,
I sprinkled golden dust on her body; as she overwhelmingly enjoyed the silken powder; voluptuously tickling her skin beyond the point of no control,
I was simply mesmerized by the titillating cascade of her hair; and the grace embedded in her form; made me stumble; even before I put down my first foot to walk,
I compared her visage with the angels dancing daintily in the heavens; with the ravishing fragrance that diffused from her persona; putting me in a state of immortal bliss,
I craved all night and day for her enchanting touch; the vividly painted nails on her fingers; circulating at electric speeds through each pore of my skin,
I worshipped her feet; like I had worshipped no God; no deity that I had every encountered on the surface of this globe,
I slept even on a blanket of acrimonious thorns; as I was completely lost in the essence of what she spoke; kept iterating the same words in my mind; till the time it had eradicated all other traces of memory,
I commenced to cry worse than the newly born child; even if I missed her presence for less than a fraction of a second,
I ran as she ran; walked as she walked; halted when she halted; ate when she ate; emulated every action of hers; howsoever much it might have seemed worthless
and inconspicuous to the outside world,
I emptied all the blood running through my veins; even as she uttered the slightest of scream; even as just a small fragment of her flesh was ripped apart a trifle by the blowing wind,
And I know by now you must be burning in the aisles of jealously sweetheart! But let me tell you that there was not any rhyme or reason for you to do so darling; as the person I have been mentioning in all the previous lines; was none other than your velvety shadow .

As long as she was sitting beside me; making me laugh uncontrollably with her innocuous gestures and the mischievous cadence in her voice.
And how does it matter even if I was the poorest man of this earth; with the Creator blessing everybody else except me with mountains of gold and silver?
And you tell me how does it matter even if I had nobody to believe me; people shunting away from me wherever I put my foot on this soil?
As long as she was sitting beside me; blending her breath entirely with mine; taking an oath to spend infinite more lives with me together .
