My Angel


Her childlike smile enchanted me
She led me with ease on her little finger
I danced on her tune
And made a fool of myself..
I adored her for her angelic looks
Forgetting mine, that drove people away..
Infinitely thankful for being loved
Inspite of my ugliness…
Inspite of all my shortcomings
Years later on the thresh hold of death
I love her more for being with me
All through the dark days
Loving me, giving me strength
Showing me the path that leads to light
For being able to look inside and love myself
For being one with my angel
Living in my soul…..

Black Hole




The tall lanky girl with her awkward gait

Stood alone outside the circle that surrounded me
I wanted to catch her eyes that looked beyond
Eyes that concealed more than what anyone could say ;
Dark clouds gathered on the distant sky
And gusty winds started blowing…
People scattered like fallen leaves
Hurrying across the river bed
To their little huts
That they thought were safe..
I looked at those eyes
laughing dancing and lighting up
Like those flashes beyond the clouds..
Drawing me near with a fierce desire with certain knowledge
Lingering within that “touch her
And you are gone
Gone with the winds
Beyond the clouds
Into the black hole
An ocean of death……..”
