Who Cares

Who cares whether I slept on a furry quilt of satin or a blanket of acridly pointed thorns, Who cares whether I ate in plates coated with scintillating silver or didn't consume food at all, Who cares whether I used perfumed soap to scrub my pe...

Whistle

It produced a melodious sound on emanating; flooding the gloomy ambience with profound tinges of rhapsody, It awoke the squirrels fast asleep in the dense bushes; as they scampered helter-skelter to hunt for their prey, It generated ripples am...

Whispering Of nature

The wind blows at a soft tune, As I sit in the full light of the Sun, Profound with the power to enchant, Teasing tiny grass stalks with all its might, Filling stripped cavities of my heart, With waves of rapturous melody. The Sun's light on...

Whisky Complexioned Hair Wig

I was born with a thick shock of curly hair, Silky strands of light brown cascading down my scalp, Broad outlines of eyebrow fringe, They were my pride; cuddled on infinite occasions by my mother, Glistening in sunshine like pure black shoe po...

Whirlpools Of despondence

My mental imagery fluctuates, As beads of sweat drip down voraciously, Spearheads of steel stab my skin, Plucking away huge chunks of my pristine flesh, Chopping the crux of zealous activity, Plundering me with the waves of dormant ecstasy, ...

Whilst Today She Had Solely Become.

There was a time when she was the most unparalleled flirtation of the entire atmosphere; whilst today she had solely become the mischievously mesmerizing mascara; of my iridescently innocuous eyelashes, ' There was a time when she was the most nu...

While Today

When she wasn't there in my life; my hands were just hands; painstakingly staggering in flagrant incoherence to engross themselves with the mundane activities of routine life, While today; they artistically evolved a civilization of bountiful ne...

While Passing By Her House

While philandering through the bustling traffic streets; the most conspicuous thing that caught my eye; was obnoxious clouds of derogatory smoke rising in the air, While strolling past the sea shore; the most conspicuous thing that caught my eye...

Where There Is No Love

Where There Is Love

Where there is bountiful grass; sprawling meadows of leafy foliage, There roam about rustic cattle and goat; painstakingly chewing the cud; relishing the appetizing meal. Where there is superfluous water; rambunctious streams of crystal liquid, ...

Where On Earth Can I Find

Where on earth can I find a lotus flower; without the slightest of redolence, Where on earth can I find an olive green coconut; without sweet kernel water, Where on earth can I find an ocean; without majestically swirling waves of saline solve...
