Haiku

Hastily tidied, desk
gains semblance of order –
the weekend beckons.

Stumbled on a haiku from 8 yrs back. Quite apposite.

Presence

Posted on

Heating on
Duvet up to my chin.
Cat curled sleeping
Peaceful, beside me.
Sudden coldness
Lifts hairs.
A step on my grave.
A ghost passing by.

Taste

Disappointment rises, 

burning like bile 

in her throat,

curdling hope.

She chokes it down 

and turns 

and smiles.

Fire and Water

Wailing, roaring, burning and hissing, leaping shadows, reckless in his rage, he hurtled down.

Unrequited

“I think I am keener than you.”
She laughed but didn’t contradict.
Better he should think that
Than know the truth.
She couldn’t afford to offer a sliver of hope.
Much better for everyone
If he never found out how
Keen she really was.

Too much 

procrastination, 

too little motivation. 

Things really can’t  

get worse.

I have not writ 

one single word 

much less a line or verse.
