My postbox

My postbox short poem

I’m hooked to this rusted gate

and in a corner,

That’s me –

choking,

and just choking,

from slit ventilation

and you just ignore.

I hold your responses

and stack all that comes,

That’s me –

waiting,

and just waiting,

for you to notice

and you just ignore.

I’m bored with my looks

and need a makeover,

That’s me –

smelling,

and just smelling,

of all the dampness

and you just ignore.

I snoop the open ones

and shhhhh, shhhhh!!!!,

That’s me –

keeping,

and just keeping,

all those secrets

and you just ignore.

I hate that pizza boy

who delivers the next door,

That’s me –

stuffing

and just stuffing,

all those offers

and you just ignore.

I neither have an umbrella

nor a raincoat,

That’s me –

rusting,

and just rusting,

from almost everything

and you just ignore.

I like a red coat

and I know its a cliché,

That’s me –

pleading,

and just pleading,

for a ‘postbox’ look

and you just ignore.

My Pearl Of Inestimable Value

My Pearl Of Inestimable Value ode

My Pearl of Inestimable Value Out from its obscurity in this Silence Dawn, emerged an invisible Cruelty, gabbed in terminal robe; Stealthily descended upon this blissful abode: the habitation of ‘My Pearl of Inestimable Value’ With its fangs snarling in

Unto My Sister

Unto My Sister short poem

I am terribly shocked and remorseful My sister, can’t help than weeping at your ill-fate Transcending self to a passive onlooker Or to the role of an unmindful passenger With torn heart, tied hands, and bleeding eyes All finding acutely

My Heart Loves You

My Heart Loves You short poem

My heart loves you Was it not some time ago, My heart was like a rock? An impenetrable fortress, With steep cliffs at its side, A distance land, Far away, From where no ordinary soul, Would dare to reside? I

My Sunshine

My Sunshine short poem

In the darkest of hours, I still knew there will be dawn, You will arise like a sun, To fill me with light and warmth, To make the world beautiful for me, To make me your Queen, In the chariot
