Why Should i?

Why should I embrace the satanically lecherous; with uncouth blood stained profusely on their devilish palms? When I had her impeccable memories floating vividly; in the crystalline white of my poignant eyes. Why should I play with the acrimonio...

Why Not We Forever Live In The Same Breath?

A different spoon for you and a different spoon for me; why not we forever digest with the same spoon; whose metal was made of the threads of invincibly compassionate symbiotism, A different glass for you and a different glass for me; why not w...

Why Not Mother's Initials?

It was only a mother who so majestically bore you 9 months in her Omnipotent womb; nourishing every ingredient of your blessed body and bone; with her very own pricelessly inimitable blood, It was only a mother who delivered you so celestially t...

Why Just ‘happy Birthday' Once A Year?

I was amazingly born everytime; I spoke the unflinchingly peerless truth; wholesomely unperturbed and unaffected by the zillion abuses and gory atrocities meted upon me; by the fathomless planet outside, I was ecstatically born everytime; I who...

Why Has Truth Disappeared O! Lord

More invincible than the colossal mountains; virtually impregnable from all sides, More unfathomable than the blue skies; prevalent in billions of entities transgressing upon the trajectory of this planet, More mesmerizing than the voice of the ...

Why Don't You See

Why do you always gauge me just by the complexion of my lips; Why don't you see the blistering passion fulminating passionately inside? Why do you always gauge me just by the color of my mascara; Why don't you see the overwhelming empathy linger...

Why Don't You Kill Me Forever?

I was dying a pathetically agonizing death every moment waiting for your sensuously silken fingers; why don't you just come infront of me; scratch me uninhibitedly on my cheek with them; and then forever kill me? I was dying an inconsolably disa...

Why Do you?

God blessed you with such magnificently immaculate palms; why do you uncouthly massacre with them; instead of philanthropically uplifting all devastatingly deprived humanity? God blessed you with such impeccably sparkling eyes; why do you witnes...

Why Did You Come Into My Life?

Why did you come into my life in the first place; igniting the most uncurbed passions of my soul? Only to eventually discard me like a piece of baseless shit; not even feeling the need to shower a single petal upon my veritable grave. Why did yo...

Why Did he

Why did he have to walk with a crippled leg, when several of his age took part in marathon race. Why did he beg with bruised bowls of cheap copper, When bulk of the population sipped peach flavored chocolate rum. Why did he travel long distance...

Why Couldn't you?

If the ravishingly mesmerizing lotus could spawn from the; stinkingly sordid pond of lugubriously dolorous dirt; with nothing but an obfuscated haze of decaying scarecrows around, Then why couldn't you exist as pristine as an immaculate angel; a...
