pepper the skyline with the flavour of sunset
and the gypsies embrace their misfortunes
with a trail of songs and rituals
let's not make this an afternoon
of empty caravans, silent cigar ashes
and black romance
poems don't come easy these days,
yet this one's been nagging me for far too long
the night air is pierced
with the cry of a solitary owl
moaning its lost love
your smile spins in the cold silence.............
snow girl,you still haunt me
in your ice blue salwaar
in my crystal mists of long ago
like the mirror haunts her own reflection......
are you still obsessed with my ancient
half- revealed secrets?
and do I still remind you of high tides
and half circles?
snow girl, I re-found you by chance
just as I had once lost you
things start happening only when you stop
let us hold hands tonight
as we remember the smell of cold sweat
beneath a brown moon
why do lovers always love the darkness?
is something wrong tonight?
have you, at last, found your God
in a tiny glass bottle?
or have lies freaked you out?
I have to say,
you got a bit too carried away this time!
the air is still corrupted
with a moist reminiscence..........
you almost stripped me of my manliness!
smile, my blue angel, smile
I have half solved your riddles of feminism!
snow girl, do you still search for a place
to hide my love letters?
I have long stopped pretending to be your friend
let's not talk about moth-eaten skyscrapers,
politics or glass mirrors
now is the time to get surreal,
let's twist words like it's never been done before
don't let pirate songs bother you tonight,
let it all bleed out through your blue intestines......
just ignore the clocks and old unicorns
let dreams take over now,
and lead us to a forbidden paradise
life now becomes the canvas of an unfinished
please don't invite the ghosts
to the dinner party
now it's onlyyou
PS:[every story has a beautiful beginning
it's the end that matters................]
