From this moment, to this moment

Right here right now
I want to have sex with you.
Love waits for us outside the almost closed door
To be picked up on our way out
And to be used on someone else.

Each time you come and go
I want to tell you
I don't run a brothel in my mind
Instead
I open my clothes for you
Noiselessly.

My tears
make interesting patterns
on your shirt.
They will dry again
when you leave
and she wont see the stains
that aren't there.

In one vulnerable moment
I lift the heavy curtain of hair
And show you the secret mole
What I don't tell you is to kiss me there
And when you don't hear my unmouthed words
The curtain descends again
And we both shrug off the uncomfortable moment
When I gave you more.
And you wanted less.

Hi poornima.
Your name somehow doesn't reassemble you. You look so incomplete. I may be wrong and I wish I am.
Anyways, I happened to stumble on your blog in the blog-o-sphere. I would like to know you more, if at all you feel comfortable about it. Drop me a mail sometime, if you care.

Best wishes and happy living.

Praval

പൂര്‍ണ്ണിമാ..

നിരാസങ്ങളുടെവേദനകളില്‍ കിളിര്‍ക്കുന്ന
നിരാശകളെ വേരോടെ പിഴുതെറിയുക!

അനുഭവങ്ങളെ അതിരാവിലേ കണ്ട ഒരു സ്വപ്നമായിമാത്രം ഓര്‍ത്തുസുഖിക്കുക!
