Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare (Audio version)

Let me not to the marriage of true mindsAdmit impediments. Love is not loveWhich alters when it alteration finds,Or bends with the remover to remove:O, no! it is an ever-fixed mark,That looks on tempests and is never shaken;It is the star to every wandering bark,Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.Love’s not Time’s fool,Continue reading “Sonnet 116 by William Shakespeare (Audio version)”


I remember, pangs of the aftermath have forced me to…As if it would be quenched, I dipped my flute in a glass of beaming yellow hues.Which refracted away its soulful stead; and found it rather hefty and pensive.It was clogged with honey: the same remedy only bitter.As it drenched my tongue which bribed my bluesContinue reading “A FLUTE IN WHISKY”


She sits under the shade of passion.A nemesis to the toppled pedestal that lies in relief besides her amongst leaves.As the day sails away, her floral blouse ripples to the hint of wind.Illuminated in her repose; isn’t she beautiful? Her lucid features pressed solemnly against the stem of bliss.Her coy eyes fixed on the leafWhichContinue reading “SHE THAT LINGERS”

Twilight as the flapping shutters wrestle the hinges of time,We take a bath in each others embrace,this time I am the gleaning lather and she the frail candle flame: flickery and unguarded. Reckless are we, we’ve dared the wind again.A dip in a pint; drown and drown dear.And let your eyes wander through the sketchesContinue reading “I WILL LAY YOU IN THE WIND”


She that lingers like an immortal ancient fable,When trees undress their worn leaves and cloth us in velvet decay.I have to let her hide her sentinel ways in my vacant stare.The difference between her tears and the rain is the subtle warmth. I linger, but in haste: hurrying to procure her one last dream andContinue reading “WHEN WE LINGER”


Everything is dull whenever the record stops.There is a recluse she cherishes that fades away into nothingness,She claims there is someone in the music.A man of undecided wrath and sensual flares.He wears a sumptuous crown ; a velvet curtain upon his eyes.When the record starts to play he rises.The melody is his breath; haunting hisContinue reading “HE THAT LINGERS”
