for evermore

ah! the games you play
remaining a stranger to me
encircling me.

closed.

your breath blows on me
as i evermore reach out to you
you, remain untouched.

concealed


concealed in wet lashes
closed in a heartbeat
you stay alive.

conscious

amalendu- thank you and its wonderful to be not only appreciated but to be liked enough to be known by the way one writes.

Oh untouched stranger!
why, why so cold?


your writings remind me of the innocence of this child in tagore's poetry.
this warmth, this sense of subjectivity which you carry in your posts leave an indelible mark on one's senses.
closed in a heartbeat
you stay alive.

...anon

I'm enjoying your scattered thoughts they've landed like Autumn leaves, many different colours and among them the fruits of the season
