Library Lovers

Library Lovers short poem

I saw him behind the stack of books

Skinny build and ordinary looks

Thick black frame around sleepy eyes

Expression clammy and mighty wise

She barged in and stood with a stare

Scared me a moment, unaware

A long blue skirt and half knotted curls

Little different from those next door girls

He caught my eyes, gave a disturbed smile

And that’s what I call ‘The Nerdy Style’

Smiling is polite, I was taught in school

Then why did she react like I was a fool?

What did he think?

Did she even blink?

I should have smiled back

I just sat there like a sack

He’ll think I am a pile on

Oh no! She’s already gone

Two lives. One interesting chapter.

Fell in love and lived happily ever after!

Beast And Lovers

Beast And Lovers short poem

In the orbit, fear was invisible; was not seeking anything, just wanted to become a stone; break my body into seven rocks, each one becoming a rhyme never to die; said, I am, now, is, not mildewed past, not grizzly


Lovers short poem

Lovers are doomed right from the start, because they follow their hearts. Just because… They leave behind the sanity of their minds. The sheer magnitude of emotions. The scary depth of feeling turns them blind. Their hearts so full of

A Lovers’ Embrace

A Lovers Embrace short poem

To feel her hand upon your face, her gentle caress like a tingling grace. The heat of her hands as they trace a path. Silken stockings on an exposed calf. To gaze into eyes so deep with desire, your heart
