Forest of love

Here we stand! You and me together! In this place that has always been our own Our forest of love Where the air glistens with embers of fate delicate yet everpresent sifting through flecks of fortune Once, this place bloomed with colour and appeal Caressed in silken webs of pleasure Iridescent with mystique and allure…

Untamed Desires

Sometimes I lie in bed and think of you The night we met and the passions we shared The rhythm of your motion, the lust induced The way you swayed, I almost despaired Golden swan in night Stars watch with silvered desire You sparkle beneath That look in your eyes as I asked you to…

Hidden Pleasure

Delicious Secrets Spiced in guilt, seasoned with bliss To tell is to spoil It finds you in a moment of peace When your guard is down and nothing but you exists Like a flash of lightning, it’s brief as a glimpse And yet it lingers, an imprint upon your mind How you savour this memory!…

Forgotten Dreams

What is a broken dream Where does hope go when it leaves a wary soul When sparks of happiness flicker and fade amidst despair If only we could see across the astroplane Into the world of forgotten dreams If only we could witness their virtue and wonder The beauty they bring to the forlorn realm…

Gratitude

I’m not so good with award nominations on WordPress. So I’m saying thank you, the best way I can, to all those who have nominated me for awards in the past two months, here’s some special poetry. I’ve also provided links to their blogs at the end It’s borne on a delicate breeze Unseen and…

The blue eyed devil (an intoxicated romance)

Love can be found in the most unlikely places It carries the scent of a better today The terse taste of bitter yesterdays And the aphrodisiac of a blissful tomorrow He sits by the bar in his favourite watering hole; the blue-eyed devil Contemplating the opaline glass before him Holding it up with a practiced…

Dangerous Entanglements

That night dripped like ink upon a virgin canvas of mystery And within it she dipped her quill of desires Calligraphing an indelicate tale of salacities I stood bare and unsullied As she became the author of my story Trust is a leap of faith but in her case I had to pole vault over…

Seeking what is found

What do you see #32 photo prompt: Memories of us lie splayed before me As my body tingles and my pulse quickens Even now I feel the ghost of your embrace My mind falling down a chasm of carnality, Reminiscing upon the salted taste of your moist skin beneath silken Roman sheets and the red…

When dreams come true (Fantasy poetry and prose)

The Spellcaster’s bond Where dreams and nightmares are shared At reality’s end The time was ripe The portends aligned Stars in that evening sky sparkled with auspicious glee And the air thrummed with a savory taste Our hands were linked in a vespers of incantation Seeking the blip between two worlds, The one we live…

Finding home

The world you’ve known has flipped on its axis Where your true north lies, you can never tell Your childhood home feels estranged, an empty shell clouded in memories of loss, comfort’s antithesis Your past, present and future have lost all symbiosis You cannot understand the lamb afraid of day or the owls that flee…

Inheriting Nature (A triple collaboration)

Hello guys. I linked up with Aishwarya of Kittysverses to write a bit about man’s relationship with nature. I love her poetry and we’ve come to be friends through WordPress. Writing alongside her happens naturally for me so I really enjoy it, I hope you do too. I’m also using photos taken by Amy of…

The Call

what do you see photo prompt The world lies just beyond that old mother tree Vast and full of mystery Its sirene call to adventure burns her so And yet fear of the unknown tells her no One step is all it takes One step she cannot make heavy and laden with uncertainty Yet laced…

Traps and snares

Lost and beleaguered within a pale stainless night Pursued by the minions of pestilence Grotesque skeletal henchmen sniffing the night air and tasting the shadowed breeze Seeking the scent of fear In that dark wilderness she sees it, Golden light peeking through a sequestered woodshed All she has to survive is a demented warning Stay…

Calm in Chaos

Colleen’s weekly challenge Trees creaked and cracked in the howling wind And still I was drawn to the eye of that mysterious storm Called by a sweet mellifluous tune within Amidst all the chaos and havoc I found tranquility As my metamorphosis began May we find the calm within the storm and ride it to…

Torn apart (A ballad) #poetry

Flocculent clouds stain the bright morning sky a beautiful blemish, of imperfect shapes perfecting a flawless canvas The sun shines bright upon him but melancholy nestles deep where no light can penetrate As he is reminded of the blotches she spluttered upon his picture-perfect life Her skirmish of salacious transgressions All those late night calls…
