The Persian Laila

Having feasted past-midnight, PersianLaila got up lazily at the stroke of twelve. Wearing her sparkling tiara, she rose with a numbing headache resultant of a hangover, Caused by the left-over French champagne that she drank greedily from the China glass of her Benevolent master. Her master’s darling she occupied a special place in his cozy lap …

Wounded

I don’t carry with me golden strings of pompous words, nor an embroidery of the  embellished locutions for  what I carry in me is a bleeding heart from where words gush out a greenish pus from decomposing wounds forever in loop for they never heal, as my brain keep playing the same slapstick movie again and …

Lofty Desires

I aimed for the mountain top while rare florets ooze from the ground beneath me, I longed for the sparkling stars neglecting the lapis lazulis laying on the beds of the mighty rivers  I craved to suckle on the heavenly nectar, while bees synchronized intricate combs in my backyard then when the dusk spread its …

Elysium (Paradise)

The moment when your glance fell on me rivers of lust flew surging so many emotions opening fissures of my soul, but as I stretched my hand to feel the warmth of that glint, it evanesced into a fourth dimension, as I lay sunken in golden bed of desires, each cell in my body bathed …

No Land For Women

Yes my right boob is bigger than the left and there is something going between my thighs You see Mr. I breath from there… But then don’t you breath from hole too?   I’ve been scared walking on the ancient silk routes, always  covered in dark veil stalked by the hawk eyes, conscious of my timid …

The Colossal Poise

I ran naked midst tall elephant grasses breathless, gasping for some air in my emaciated lungs collapsing  on the red Earth beneath.   Alarmed by the blob of sounds oozing from the fissures, leaned  and settled my left ear to listen to the heart-beats of my own unborn still floating in   vast cores.   Gentle pulsing sighs of life gone …

Mamma (Mother)

(This poem is a tribute to my mamma ( as I call her) for being an amazing mother, for raising two children single, working hard to put food in our hungry bellies, for loving us so much, for setting us free and fad away)   Carried in warm waters of her womb for 280 days …

A Believer

Me a speck of dust insignificant particle  May be a believer or  may be not…. Yet here I am…, here I am with topaz rays of the glorious Sun on my  malformed face. Azure brook flowing gently through my blistered feet. Fluttering of crushed leaves, music to  mine ears. Buzzing of bees, melody of  fallen florets. …

Snobbish Indifference

Stolen glances  missing beats  those translucent moments, porous  breaths evaporated  in cheap sooty puffs  of gas-station cigarettes, lungs  choked of highway psychedelics, motel caffeine to measure vaccant hours of  your casual neglect,  I measure from puff to puff, smoke to smoke and make most of those empty hours, all while gazing at your  sinful lips, marveling the …

Love And Lovers

Love a deceitful whispered silently in cold nights gently waking me from a self induced delirium, echos of those chatters and laughters, lingering on in some nights, for Love remains deceitful and dimpled lovers elusive , I humbly accept what my beloved offers knowing that price paid for few moments and sighs in love  is much …
