Don't say you love me

Image : Google Images


Chooses the tenderest words



to describe a lost love


if you choose to remember me


sometime, in a rooftop cafe






whenever on a beach, if


a receding wave brings back memories 


of my impossible dreams with you


smile at the sea






the moment your newborn


clasps your finger in his palm


whisper my name in his ear


tell him he lived in my dreams






if you write an autobiography


leave a chapter blank for me


for ruins can't be mentioned


in stories about homes and families






Choose to move on


for burials must be brief


no words are ever appropriate


don't say you love me


that is the worst part !

Cenotaph




Pushing the sprained ankle
on the accelerator
she wants to speed away
from the invisible 
cage of misery 

She remembers 
his eyes, when he looked 
at her

what if she won't 
bring back the foot
to the brakes

she will die 
on a road
be buried or burnt
somewhere
but his soul will be her
cenotaph

Poison



Pin drop silences
heavy words
both rocks
tied to my ankles
in a lake

the unborn children
I bled
a wet salinity
in the corner of the eye

liquid diet for the soul
toxic like the air
of a beloved soul space

O love
you my nectar
you my poison's taste

DREAMS

My slow fingers
draw a thick line of kohl
in which remain 
inscribed the names of 
all my lost loves

my hands shake
my heart flutters
counting the deaths
of lovers, of loves

blood-soaked dreams
I roam the corridors 
of Macbeth's mind

Did I kill my dreams?
Did my dreams kill me?
