Dim and gloomy

Deep in the dungeon

They sit

Dishshevelled looks

Deepening frown lines

Startled and alarmed

At the turn of the tide

Worries mock their senses

Where is the escape?

Will anything be enough?

The weight of mounting expectations

“We ain’t no miracle workers!”

Dear ones,

I hate to burst your bubble

But you’re fighting a war

No less

There’s no time to waste

Keep on!

Keep on!

No one’s seen the future

Keep on

Marching towards the light

Take heart!

A different world awaits




“As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light in the darkness of mere being.”

― Carl Jung

Til times up

Elbow deep in the trenches




Didn’t know what I was looking for

Til I found you

Darling, aren’t you a sight for sore eyes!

Weapons down

Walls down

Hands up!

I surrender

I’d rather be a prisoner for life

No place safer than

When I am trapped

In a garland of your arms

So tie me up tight


It’s a badge of honor

To be locked for life with you

Until hell freezeth over




He who loves has conquered the world and has no fear of losing anything. True love is an act of total surrender.”

– Paulo Coelho

La La Land

Somewhere in La La Land

A handsome guy and a gorgeous gal

Together on a ride

Fueled by pure intentions

Hands-on the steering

Adjusting the rearview

Take a seat darling

Recline -relax

Buckle up baby

Am stepping up the gas

It’s time to fly!

Drunk on the sea breeze

Hair and laughter blowing in the wind

Let’s promise each other this-

Whatever be the terrain

Sandy beaches and tall palm trees

Scenic greens or empty streets

High rises or mountains

Whatever be the weather

Sunny and clear blue skies

Or cloudy with a chance of thunder

Whether the light turns red or green

Let’s race to every stop

Let’s live life king size

In this land of dreams

“Welcome to Hollywood! What’s your dream? Everybody comes here; this is Hollywood, land of dreams. Some dreams come true, some don’t; but keep on dreamin’ – this is Hollywood. Always time to dream, so keep on dreamin’.”

-(Pretty Woman)

Remember dear ones, the reality is that life as we know it is a dream…

The smell of mischief and coffee

The embrace of your hands on my back

And a garland of mine round your neck

The kick of caffeine and a drawn-out kiss

Leaving you wanting

I leave with a smile on my lips

“How did I get so lucky!”


Sexy mornings start like this!


When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.

– Marcus Aurelius

Private & Confidential

Tiptoeing in…

“Sweetheart, are you still awake?”


Is that a whiff of intoxication in the air I breathe?

Is that a smile creeping up your face?

Widening into a full-grown grin

Are you biting your finger?

And seducing me with those telltale eyes

I guess

Someone’s feeling lonesome tonight…


Will it help now?

-If I slide in next to you

-If I pull you in

-If I let my hand wander here and there

-If I unbutton that tight number

-If I whisper sweet nothings in your ear

-If I tip tap trace your arm

-If I tickle your shoulder

-If I move in even closer

-If we burn the midnight oil

Giving and receiving favors

All night long




“Seduction isn’t making someone do what they don’t want to do; seduction is enticing someone into doing what they secretly want to do already”

Déjà vu

I chanced upon a musty old book

Out slipped brittle paper letters

Love notes

Of lovers from a different time

Baring their soul

In words to one another

Innocent of my reading eyes

Why do they seem to be speaking to me?

Of a lucky moment

Coming closer in this lifetime



Code RED

I see danger

A tomato-red shirt and

A peeping white lacy brassiere

I smell mischief

I smell mischief up your sleeve

I taste temptation

I’m craving the taste of you

I touch me

You touch you

I lick my lips

It’s so hot

I’m popping a button or two

“In the mood to play?

A game for big boys and girls”

“Darling, you’re such a striptease,

Let the games begin!”


“When temptation knocks, imagination usually answers.”- Dan Bennett
