When she blushed she looked as mesmerizing as the sparkling oyster shell; as impeccable as the moon, Driving me into waves of stupendous rhapsody; inundating my persona with overwhelming exhilaration. When she blushed she appeared as ravishing ...

When She arrived

When she arrived; the cluster of fragrant flowers in the garden bent down in meek submission, When she arrived; the birds soaring high in the sky chirped all the more vociferously; attempting to make their presence felt, When she arrived; warm...

When She Abandoned Me

There was a time when she had just come into my life like thunderbolts of white lightening; igniting each pore my penuriously famished skin; with infernos of insatiably burgeoning desire, While today when she abandoned me; I felt worse than a fri...

When Ridiculed By My Very Own Beloved

When the world laughed at my perfectly normal hands; I rose like an unflinchingly peerless tiger; to defend my irrefutably untainted integrity, But when the same was unsparingly ridiculed by my very own beloved; I felt hopelessly crippled; not ev...

When I Woke Up From Sleep
