Or rabbit’s foot
Don’t bring me luck
But I have You
She is ripe for the taking
If you had gotten through the wall
Sleeping beauty won’t be waking
Just because you call
Make room for the next
Knight in Shining Armour
Who is game to axe
The enchanted wall with ardour
Why cry over a kiss
That never took place?
You knew that one miss
Would throw you out of the race
It would seem
It was not on the card
Outside of your dream
She was never yours to start
I am sorry
For all the times I broke my word
For all the pain I caused your heart
For all the sleepless nights due to hurt
For all the missed moments to make things right
I am sorry
I have said it too many times before
Time has revealed the shallowness of my apology
You won’t believe me when I say it once more
It seems our love is heading for its final eulogy
I am sorry
I took your love for granted
But it’s easy to go save the world
When your arms are always extended
To pull me out when I am lost in a whirl
I am sorry
You trust me no longer
I have used up your good faith
My desire to live has become shorter
As none can replace you as my mate
I am sorry I destroyed our love
A love destined to be epic
I dream of a world where girls are not murdered at birth.
I dream of a world where no one knows the meaning of dowry.
I dream of a world where the price of a bride cannot be expressed in goods.
I dream of a world where education is available to all.
I dream of a world where there are no gender stereotypes.
I dream of a world where women are treated as human beings.
I dream of a world where there is no need for women to have a special day because they are treated equally in every way.
I survived today’s trial work day with only a terrible headache to show for it. Could have been worse, I guess. 🙂 The feedback I received was positive but still no contract, so it is too soon to open that bottle of champagne. I was in my element today and I am convinced that this is the right career path for me. I will write about my experiences with more details soon.
Here is a poem I wrote today. I find it extremely difficult to write happy poems. The ones about loneliness and pain are much easier to write. The irony is that my real situation is one of happiness and I am neither lonely nor in emotional pain.
Therefore I decided to end today on a happy note. Here is my attempt at a happy poem. Hope you like it. If you don’t, I blame my headache for diminishing my literary prowess.
Heavenly moments fleet like the steam above a bowl of chicken soup.
Amore mio, winning your love is my greatest coup.
Picture perfect reality transports me into a state of total elation.
Propagating these pure emotions to the universe is my new vocation.
Yesteryear blues that I grieve not are gone in a swoop.
There was once a man in paradise
Who could not believe the scene before his eyes Continue reading
Summer years beckon,
“Get out and play with us now
before autumn comes.”
As body grows old
the mind looks back to the time
happily spent indoors. Continue reading
I add another stone to the satchel I carry on my back
The burden forces me to bend forward as I drag my feet
Left, right, left, right, left, right,
I stop in front of a fork in the road
I can’t decide to go right or left Continue reading

Tis Friday night and I am not alone
I have 20 Likes on my status
The one with the picture of my microwave dinner
I open the shoe box
The tissue paper rustles pleasantly in my ears Continue reading
