Leave the door open

You looked into my eyes

You saw my soul

Now don’t look away

After opening the gift

Don’t wrap yourself again

You laughed at my every joke

Now don’t hide that grin away

After quieting all my doubts

Don’t fill the silence again

You raced into my heart

Now don’t walk away

You put the good in my morning

Now don’t call it a night

After getting close dear pal

Don’t get all formal stranger again

You opened all the windows

Now don’t close the door

You found me

Now don’t let me get lost again

Don’t go

Forever stay.

open the door

Before Sunset


A tutty fruity coloured sky,

The last rays shining through the clouds,

Like skin peeping through white lace.

Waves racing then breaking at the shore,

Birds chirping noisily rushing to reach home,

Footsteps running to make it in time.

A smooth satin finish to the final moments

Before the vast stillness takes over,

Only a slight breeze keeping it alive.


Miss Doll

She knows how to make an entry,

She stops the traffic,

She halts every conversation.

Her features are chiseled

Her hair curly brown

Her grey eyes sparkling

Her lips tight and peachy

Her dangling diamond drops

Her jingling bracelets

Her smoky eye shadow matching

Her dress fitting like second skin

Grace at every turn

Elegance in her every move

Ignorant of her charms.

Her emotions are displayed

As transparent as a child’s

Her desires are hidden

As secretly as a woman’s

Quick to anger

As easy as to please

Her forehead frowns

As cutely as her dimple

Take care

She is a porcelain doll

Every eye wonders after

Every hand afraid to touch

Lest she breaks


You are an enigma

Not a child

Not yet a woman.


Freeze the frame

The last embers of the fire die out

Red, orange and yellow fume into white

As life ebbs away

The fragrance of being fully permeates

The chloroform of unfeeling

Words shivering

Voices whispering

The unexpected hour of reckoning

The resigned acceptance of the inevitable

The childish observations of the realist

The hoping against hope of the eternal optimist

The cold humor of the gallows

‘Let’s laugh it off while we can

After all, we’re not dead yet!’

The apologies of the risk taking adventurist

The gratitude of the practical and objective

The promises of eternity

From the mouths of mortality

The hostile confessions of trapped emotions

The dying declarations of the fleeing soul

The sound and light show ending

The slipping away of human hands and love divine

Oh! Hold on, hold on tight

The reason to live is going quiet….


Who will you be?

Amidst the checkered landscape of life,

The raining heavens and the cloudy moods.

A cold steel pyramid of success,

A towering symbol of love and romance,

Standing proud and tall,

A lighthouse for miles,

A beacon for all and sundry to look up to.

The humble human shield,

With room for only one or two.

When the world turns upside down,

A red ark turned inside out,

Remaining open and exposed,

Wearing an outward garb,

In colors of the human heart.

Feeling, filling to the brim.

Who will you be?


No Rhyme, No Reason

Fair Warning : Amateur Poetry Ahead!

Is it a goodbye, an ending, a closing?

Is it moving away or moving closer?

Forging ahead,


Left contemplating,

The realm of possibilities

Yearning for more,

But standing still.




Routine, mundane,

Closed space,


The relaxed comfort of darkness,

Calm and efficient voice,

A blinding light

Looking into the distance,

Concentrating mind at a point,

Heart taking flight in the veil of night

Unspoken dreams and fantasies closing in,

A momentous forgetfulness,

Drowning out the physical reality,

Is it right?

Is it desirable?

The undeniable knowledge it’s possible,

What weight of surprise brought this to the fore?

Floating fleetingly,

Till all is bright again.



I make a wish list

Never knowing that it would come to life in a split second

The universe listening closely

Agrees to turn it into reality

My ideals come closer

One by one

Yet taken by surprise at this sudden turn of events


Never knew it could feel so good so soon

How do you want it to play?

A deep breath

What have I wished for?

What path brought me to this present moment?

Never dreamt far enough to know how it ends

Left speechless, thoughtless

Time’s up!

A blunt break-

Have I just been taken for a fool?

Yes! No, maybe

Left In a daze

In the heat of the moment

Wondering was I not ready

For my prayers to be answered.



The stage is set

In colors of white, blue and black.

A soothing voice

Sings a haunting melody

In the shadows of the night


Frozen love

Forgotten promises and commitments


A human heart

Bone chilling,

Melting, thawing,

Slowly trickling

Everything solid disappearing

Under the day’s blasting spot light.



Dedicated  to all those who DANCE

Let’s play our favourite music

Let’s escape within and without

Let’s get in step with our inner rhythm

Let’s sway to our own beat

Let’s put our guard down

Let’s be comfortable in our own skin

Let’s take this small simple step

Let’s ease in

Let’s loose ourselves

Let’s have fun

Let’s plug in

Let’s unfurl

Let’s leave our inhibitions behind

No one’s watching

No one’s listening

No one’s holding us up

We are alone

On this date

Body, mind and soul.



Pack up

Leave all that is familiar and comfortable

No matter life’s thunderstorms

The crackling lightning

The torrential rains

Come with whatever little remains

Hold on tight

Even if the mist does not clear

Bring your heavy heart

Bring your hiding tears

Let them rain

That they clear your vision

Destiny o so glorious lies in wait

In readiness to accept and love you

Soaking wet

Battle wounds and all.

Your dream come true

Only a breath away

It never is too late

For the honest truth

Forgiveness is for the taking

A heartbeat away

So cross the bridge

Come on over

Catch up and embrace

Join hands

How long can you runaway?

Stop and stay.



Your smile

Warms from a mile

You are my relief

You are my release

When you pick me up

My spirit soars

When you lift me in the air

I forget the cares of the world

When I am in your arms

I feel safe and sound

When you read my mind

Everything is warm and fuzzy outside

When you hug me close

Hearts melt

When you are so adorable and cute

Everything feels right with the world

For a moment the ice breaks

Sworn enemies smile

And bridge the fence

When I am in your embrace

I can reach for the stars

When I am in your arms

I finally

Feel at home.
