~::~ Rhymed In Love ~::~


I looked for you in crowded faces

I looked high and low in myriad places

Wondering where I could find you

And wash away my earthly blues


I sit here waiting for the One to love

Awaiting an interlude by heavens above

Anticipating the advent of a soul mate

At the touch of whom my heart’s at pace


Oh love! I search, I search for thee

A love that makes me more me

The love that inspired me to rhyme

A love that would last for a lifetime


A verse in rhyme I write for you

A verse I dream in love-laced hues

A verse so real, of love surreal

A verse, with my feelings concealed


I pine for you and words just flow

I sit writing poems, my face aglow

I write a poem, love poems for thee

Where art thou, come set my heart free!


Written for Dverse Poet Prompt  – to write on what prompted/inspired you to take to poetry.

For me it was Love and the search for the one true love! 🙂 The dreams of which and lack of which inspired me to write many a blissful/mushy/sad poems of love. I hope I have justified the prompt as well as my inspiration – Love!!

There’s so much I want to say

There’s so much to convey

But words just elude me

I can’t seem to break free

Chains of reality weighing me down

Distances between us make me frown

Every passing second seem an eternity long

My aching heart hums a silent love song

For all the miles that lay between

A zillion could have, would have, should have been

Without you around, I feel incomplete

Even my rhythmic heart skips a beat

With every moment I yearn for you

Your absence makes me feel all blue

A stabbing pain, a silent tear

Your velvet voice I pine to hear

Slender fingers, contoured face

That losing myself in your embrace

Your silken lips laced in a naughty dimpled smile

Melts my soul into a gooey pile

My darling I stand here by the altar

Awaiting your arrival, my Knight in shining armor!


~::~ Is It Love ~::~

~::~ Is it love? ~::~


When the best place to be is in someone’s arms

When you’re lost away from all worldly charms

When an intense look gives tummy a somersault

When all emotions seem to be locked up in a vault

Is it love??


When a single touch sends across shock waves

When togetherness is all your heart craves

When everything loses colour in their absence

When even the sanest things, lose out on sense

Is it love??         


When the eyes are giddy and mind is numb

Even to minor pleasures your will succumbs

When Music becomes the best friend & lyrics all true

When mind is reeling with feelings blue

Is it love?


When nature’s beauty seem like mediocre scenes

When only a feeling of emptiness reigns

When interaction with others seem middling affair

When yearning in memories is all you care

Is it love?

I’m missing the days we spent together

Cuddled up, fingers entwined by the heather

Under the jade moon’s dim light

Stars playing peek-a-boo at twilight

‘Neath cherry blossoms, o’er leafy sheets

Canopy of pinks & whites, a clandestine treat

Resting my head on your chest

And feel your heart flutter away in zest

The rhythmic thud with a skip in beat

Your failed attempts at camouflaging the heat

Inflaming your soft rose petalled lips

Your strong hands curling my hips

Our present, into an oblivion twirled

Fervor arose, unknown to the world

Butterfly touches & feathery kisses

In throes of passion, our silent hisses

With stars twinkling & gossamer moon’s ascent

We lay there lost in love, utterly spent!





~::~ You & Me ~::~

~::~ You & Me ~::~


Golden glistening honeyed hue

Your skin as cool as morning dew

You gaze at moon hung high

Million stars adorning the sky

My fingers trace the contours of your face

The feathery touches set your heart at pace

Intertwined fingers playing a tune

Pianos, violins, Guitars – all croon

Your pink lips – sugar drops mellow

Parched for me, they yearn & glow

Senses heightened hearts aflutter

As you melt in my arms like butter

Lost in a trance, emotions excess

We lay there savoring our togetherness

A moment of silence lasting eternity

Our perfect moment – just you and me!

When love is true,

you want it forever;
When love is deep,

forever is enough never;
When heart is enraptured,

eternity is craved for;

When soul is enriched,

 infinite is the dimension of love-
Stretching far into the horizon…, Forever alive, forever young!
Lucky are those who find love, So pure as this.
Blessed are those who can love,As deeply as this.
Enchanted are the moments shared, With a loved one like this.
Enthralling the experience of a love, As deep as this…
So savor the moments And don’t let them go.
Capture them in your heart and let your soul glow…
Forever and forever more…


~::~ Lost September Love ~::~

~::~ Lost September Love ~::~

Twilight hour rung athwart the earth

Darkness spread, sunlight in dearth

She crept up along the wilderness

Stealthily, adorned in her black dress

Awaiting his arrival yet another night

Quickened paces, emotions tight

Sauntered pass the bereft trees

Sensing beyond what the eye sees

Beads on her brow, this warm September

A year back right here, would he remember?

Their mellow love inscribed across valley

Scented flowers, dewy grass- their ally

Ah! That sweet september love

When sparks flew o’er heathery alcove

Moments etched pure in her every pore

He left as she yearned for more

Alas! The night lost forever

Left unto faith to tether

Hours of tonight, passed in eerie silence

Nocturnal friends awaited, anxiety intense

In the wake of the moon shining bright

Sitting by the rock, she wept in quiet

Another night ends, another defeat

Amplified wait for next meet

Crestfallen she trudged, forlorn

As arose Sun, embarking new dawn

A wait so long, lasting eternity

Until togetherness sets her free


~::~ Hopes Affray ~::~

~::~ Hopes Affray ~::~ 

Fog unfurls, diurnal draws close

My soul awakens, dawn of night

Feeble stars arise at twilight


Many years, I have lain to doze

Awaiting influx yet today

Advents deceive, to my dismay


Standing there with a blood red rose

Patience ruffle and surrender

Hopes affray, emotions tender


Destiny belies, as life slows

Worthlessness slyly raises head

I recline, again on death-bed

The first lines of all the stanzas can be read successively as an independent poem, with the rest of the poem weaved in to express a deeper meaning. The first lines convey a theme written in monorhyme, while the second and third lines of each stanza rhyme together.

~::~ Eventide Rendezvous ~::~

Setting sun, twilight purple sky

Popping stars twinkling diamond studs

Heathery bed, velvet rose buds

Intimacy sets, fervent high

Tangled fingers, stupor lingers

Pervasive frantic kisses ply

Throes of sanity, passion floods

Setting sun, twilight purple sky


Setting sun, twilight purple sky

Euphoria rising in blood

We lay entwined upon cold mud

Up roaring furor souls defy

Drizzling rain alleviates pain

As it pours; this eve of July

Utterly spent, exhaustion floods

Setting sun, twilight purple sky
