A Bit Of Me

When I leave I shall have left,
No footprints on sand
No ripples on still blue waters
No images on mirrors
So when I leave,
Can I leave a bit of me with you?

Star

The night I stared at the heavenward blue,
The night my heart had wept for you.
Stranded on that sooty black
A pair of stars up and high
I knew I loved, I remember those eyes
But who, at all was the answer to my cries
The glitter his eyes had cast in glee
Her words had stuck like dust on me.

Shady ghosts arrived to veil
Till i finally caught the trail...

She was the answers to all my prayers
The fingers that gnawed deep into my layers
She was the dawn to my deathly nights
She was the star, even from long afar
that drenched me in an eternal light.


How?

How do you do that?
Undress me one layer at a time
And kiss that void deep into
the pits of my stomach with those eyes

And how do you tangle and detangle
locked away abysses of passion in me
effortlessly, like strands of hair
snarled in your fingers

How do you fit with ease,
into my arms like puzzle pieces?
We were strangers,
after all...

Conspiracy

Then I, wet with desires and forlorn
To forgotten hymns from yesterday
and drenched in praises of Gods
from the sky.

In our secret penchant for the ultimate union
Through blurred glasses and webs of dreary hair
Between rumbles of ache and background noises

Us, torn apart by distances
and sewn, in hems of a major conspiracy-
Love.

A Nobody

The way your eyes smirk at my existence
and heavy breaths sublime under hallucinating lights
The rifts of your wet lips, abhorrent and unawaiting
On mine sometimes, sometimes gone
A lover's sigh, and poet's respite,

You.

The splash of aquamarine to my gloomy canvases.


Unworthy

The ode to her sorrow, 
in the life she has lived,
The love she ever held in her heart, 
the love she never received.

Undone

In her leaving,
I saw the death of a hundred moments
of hopes and love
crumble onto earth.

In her dismay,
I saw the love in my heart
grow wilder, desperate in longing
her touch of solace.

In her smiles,
I saw the forgotten heartaches
we traded through fragrant air
in the death of the night.

In the twinkle of her eyes,
I saw a new love settle down
on veneers of dust-clad memories
of holding hands and wiping tears.

In a jiffy,
I saw her
love me and leave me
And all at once, came undone
