Marry Me

Marry Me ode

Photo by Lel4nd

i will not marry you,
because of your color
i will not marry you
because of your nationality
yes, i will not marry you
for your faith
i will not marry you
for your social status
for our political differences
marriage is off the table
i will not marry you
my parents object it
i will not marry you
because of age-long taboo
between our communities
i will not marry you
for personality differences
for medical reasons
i will not marry you
i will not marry you
because my visional
say: no
my spiritual father say:
no
i will not marry
because our visions
are different
i will not marry you
yes-i will not marry-
move on to look
for your lover
i will not. i will not. i will not.

Nothing Fascinate Me Anymore

Nothing Fascinate Me Anymore short poem

Riding slowly among the misty clouds The endless curves of mighty hills But i wonder it’s not fascinating me anymore Why i curtailed my world in you? Deep down there lays beautiful valleys Defining life beyond explanation But my soul

Kiss Me Each Morning

Kiss Me Each Morning short poem

Kiss me each morning for a million years The joy it gives is the reason for my tears; Honey I take your love and I make it right Now here is my body Let it be your velvet for tonight
