Rhythm of Rain.

The day was long,
Like a smooth jazz song.
I sat on the porch,
Humming the tune along.

The sky was crying,
For all its despair.
Washing it away,
Without any care.

Not just love.

We started like all,
Smiling at space.
Thinking of the one,
Like a butterfly chase.

Exploring her mind,
Her exquisite charm.
Amazed by her thoughts,
And her mischevious calm.

We didn't propose,
No anniversary to wait.
We knew the feel was right,
Like a chalk and a slate.

We learnt a lot in time,
How to make her smile.
To make that extra effort,
And it's ok to wait a while.

We knew what we want,
Even the lamest of our need.
What looked like a boon,
Was a blooming deadly seed.

We learnt what we like,
Till their palm's dirt.
We learnt not just love,
But also how to hurt.

-Venkat Iyer

LOVE, HER

Envy or Respect?  

A sense of shy,
As I took the step.
I felt what I had lost,
Drowned in the depth

They say life is like a book.
Where you turn a page .
Well mine was a series.
Some about freedom, some in a cage.

I've licked the bottom,
And have Tasted the tip too.
For some i was an artist.
For others just prostitute.

They all knew  me by face,
But very few knew  my name.
I don't which one they did.
Names changed as the time came.

They call my art vulgar.
Others amazed by its aspect.
I had their Envy.
But not their Respect.

Jail

Time is all you get
In the cells set in a row.
Think all you can.
Till the guilt starts to grow.

You can weep all you can
But none will help the pain.
Live your life in fear.
Hiding your face  with blood stain.

Read all you get.
No guarantee it'll make you wise.
It's not to blame the books.
You've lived a life of lies.

You've lost your freedom.
Sinned enough to fail.
The justice has been served.
Live the rest in Jail.

Disagree...

We came along a long way,
Cuddly Nights and Busy day.
With many downs and up,
sharing love in a single cup.

Walked along holding hand    
Nothing , we didnt understand
Life was full with love and care
a small thought , gave me scare

Roots were deep of our family tree,
Worried and scared of disagree.
For it may start, "Who is right?"
Life may turn from Fun to fight.

With utmost care i shared my view,
To kill the tension that slowly grew.
Not a word came from "Her Highness".
The hurting part was her killing silence

Came the night she sat beside.
Mesmerized by her silent side.
Her face was calm like the deep Nile.
That's when she gave a soft smile.

Relieved, I h...

Miss N.

She was a mystery
With a secret history
Traveling a mile.
With a nice long smile

With a smile says "Hi"
Comes all the way from Powai.
Time stays still,
when she tries to speak in Tamil.

Does her work piece by piece
She hates when we call her "Raees"
People like the way she says.
Laugh and whine at her lame PJs

Looks very beautiful
and sometimes even better,
Dresses stunningly
like a Style trend setter.

She like my poems.
asked me to write one.
Above is all that i could get.
Coz, "I don't know her enough yet".

Being alone is the new trend.
Most you can get is a masked Friend.
You spill your pain, in hope for care.
All you get is more pain to bear.

Dreamworld.

Come, Live a day,
In the world of dreams.
Where you could stay,
As like as you seem.

Live life, the way you want,
No one to say, that you can't.
Rule the land, as throned KING
feel the breeze as high as you sing.

Fly freely spreading your arms.
Show the world, spark of your charm.
Hug the earth, Kiss the Sky.
Don't bother to answer the Why.

Enjoy the pleasure, both Love and Lust.
Enjoy your life , as you must.
Taste the nectar, from the blossoming flower.
Reach the horizon, at the midnight hour.

The treasures of the world,
All are yours to keep.
Fulfil your fantasy,
as long you can sleep.

Come, Live a day.
In the world of dreams.

Spark in the Can!

The space was dark and was my own, 
living in peace but all alone. 
the sound of silence screamed in my ear, 
the burden of guilt was too much to bear.

For those who knew , I was a happy man, 
no one ever tried to peek into my Can. 
words were useless without any care, 
as I could see the truth in their glare.

Flowing down deep into dark, 
When I saw the light of the spark! 
The love was pure,beyond my belief, 
which gave me peace and so much relief.

Freedom in a Cage.

It was a bright sunny day.
"Good bye forever" was all she had to say.
I looked at the sky.
Wondering what wrong went by.

The emotion was vague.
Was hurting like a plague.
Heart filled with rage.
An endless voyage.

Everything has gone.
I had to move on.
Met most seductive of the face.
She was the queen of the ace.

With power of lying.
She left many dying.
When the clock hit nine.
I offered her some wine.

She was happy for the hire.
I was happy for my desire.
For it wasn't a cheat.
Just a momentary heat

The sense I felt
Ice starting to melt.
the bed was ready
Started slow and steady

Wondered "Pleasure at what cost?"
For her beauty had already lost.
I left her with her ...

Don't be afraid....

To the heart in you,  
          don't be afraid to feel.
To the sun in you,
         don't be afraid to shine.
To the love in you,
        don't be afraid to heal.
To the ocean in you,
        don't be afraid to rage.
To the silence in you,
       don't be afraid to break.

Mesmerised....

A empty mind, a lone walk.
A silent heart, an urge to talk.
Ray of light, a leaf with dew.
A bright start,a serene view

The air was fresh, the breeze was cold.
She caught my eye, bright as gold.
The sound of waves, cut me in half.
Mind was full, with her smile and laugh.

A queen's elegance, a princess's grace.
beauty won't define, charm of her face.
Dark as coal, fine as a hair.
She got my heart, with her single glare.

Feel of  Heaven, angel from above.
They said its true, first sight love.
Denied their fact, sure of my heart.
Heart was beating, mind fell apart

Time was up, came to sense.
She got me fair,through all my defence.
Absence of desire, satisfaction disguised.

Joy of defeat....

A walk in the wood,
that was all I could.
Leaves with drops of gold,
The sun was really cold.

Mind was full,
with goals and ambition.
A careful thought,
beware of competition.

My body broke,
with all I prepared.
Victory in reach,
my eyes glared.

Just before the moment,
I started to rejoice.
The shine of victory,
Blinded my eyes.

A moment of ease,
Costed the feat
Time came to end,
I dropped to my feet.

The sense of chagrin,
A need to win.
Exult before time,
Was a deadly sin.

Tried again with my might,
The mistake I did was finally right.
Excited I skipped a beat.
All to realise the "joy of defeat."

Mirror.....

Known from start
Together from birth
They knew only me
"He" was unknown to earth

Our opinions differed
So were our views
The conflict between us
No one had a clue

Came the day
When our likes matched
The fact "she" proved
Was our hearts were attached

Loving the same.
Undivided was care
Her love was something
we couldn't share

She had to choose
One had to lose
One's dream had to be killed
The question was whose?

Rejected by her choice
Filled with rage, he broke
The dusk of the day
Was the last we spoke.

The days are lonely
The nights with her
The only time I see him
Is when I see "Mirror"

Freedom..

My heart is a clown
walking on its way.
ignoring the "what"
The people has to say

Long was the path.
unknown was "where"
walking on its whim
coz' destiny was there.

Tired the legs.
It saw at the sky
looking at the horizon.
searching for "why".

journey was long.
mystery As a clue.
The answer was there.
The question was "who"

Time about to be up.
The fear of give up
with every now and then
unanswered was "when"

finally came the point.
across the river.
Shining very bright
it was a "mirror".

Few made it happy
rejected by some.
The image it saw
was called as Freedom.

She had a heart, pure and virgin
Clean from all flaws and sin.
Worshipped love as an art.
Was hurted by and torn apart

care and love was all to ask.
but came as lies using love as mask.
tired of being cheated and used.
Selling herself was the way she chose.

Naked skin and body was all seen.
The depth of her soul was pure and clean
she chose her clients who were cute and neat
living every night in a different lavish suite

Out of shape,with bruises and dent.
but all that mattered was end payment
her life was a tree with sweet root.
but all knew her as a prostitute.

Sometimes I wonder.
what's deep down under.
A blooming love bud?
flowing through my blood.

crushed by the first.
almost turned into dust.
dreaming applauding claps.
but came as hard slaps.

Lost all hope.
Love not in scope.
Like a flash she came.
The feel wasn't the same.

Floating over the past.
when love didn't last.
Hoping to see the shore.
Love happened twice more.

Dream came true.
saw the brightest blue.
The bud turned to a tree.
wanted one, now I had three.

Care was there.
more than my share.
The castle I built
was full of guilt.

Two saw the Lie.
and said good bye.
One lost to love.
And chose to stay by.

Happily my eye cried.
Still unsatisfied.
Love, unable to claim.
Finding re...

Guilty Pleasure.....

You and me in my dream.
Pleasure with a scream.
No redness on face.
Passionate embrace

Breathe blocked with a lock.
No care over the clock.
This magic called kiss.
Every moment bliss.

Every moment to cease.
Soft Touch to tease.
A chill in the spine.
Feel of cloud nine.

Satisfaction to take.
Everything on stake.
Before its too late.
Time to pull the brake.

The moment we cherished.
Before everything perished.
An inestimable treasure.
Our guilty pleasure

JUST  FRIENDS.....

A bond so free.
Only you and me
Us at our best.
No love on test

Flying freely as a bird.
Where love is only a word.
As easy as settling dirt.
No worry, how much you flirt

Care up to a limit.
Everything perfectly fit.
No need to blame.
Pleasure, just another game.

No need to be loyal.
Live life like a royal
Partner no less than best.
First person to text

Life with no heat.
You made it Complete.
With You every wound mends.
It's love or just friends?

The strange sound of air
The darkness gave a glare
a stench so dense.
I lost my all sense.

creeping creatures of the dark.
feeling of being stalked.
screaming sound of steps.
I felt my trembling legs.

with every time I breathe
could hear the swords unsheathe
I saw my shattering dreams
when I heard the silent screams.

with all my hopes gone.
Lot was left till dawn.
unable to bear the cold.
saw a cottage very old.

The night still had more.
I slowly knocked the door.
My shoulder felt a hand.
My soul turned to sand.

scared I turned around
My heart rate fell down.
Stepped back to realise
Couldn't believe my eyes

The fairest of the skin.
She was here to commit the sin.
She too...

Sadness died

Travelling long,
she was here.
Would she be safe?
hope with fear.

years of wait
coming to an end.
wounds on heart
ready to mend.

time got slow
all of a sudden
heart beating fast
increasing  burden

world seemed bright
admiring as my duty.
an image in my mind.
of her eternal beauty.

The air had her essence
the charm of her presence.
with blink of a eye
everything vanished by.

For came the news.
that shook me by.
aching in the center.
unable to cry.

time had come to give me aid?
now have to wait another decade.
Breeze of air,brought me to sense
that's when I realised the beauty of patience.

The night was up.
whiskey in the cup.
guilt was deep.
The demon asleep.

every act with pain.
every resistance in vain.
too much the pleasure.
To just please her.

arms around the waist.
lips ready to taste.
As delicate as a ripple.
touched her nipple.

To take it to new height.
she gave the magic bite.
To quench her thirst
entered with a thrust.

every move I make.
icing on the cake.
finally all gold turn to dust.
is it love or only lust?

the show was on,
won't stop till the dawn.
in-between all waste,
a beauty with taste.

every eye on her.
In hope to get a glare.
finally slanging she say
"haramkhor mera paper de".

one fine day she caught.
The only chance that I got.
our eyes met at once.
A belly butterfly dance.

her number was a task.
very tough to ask.
For she may ask " why should I give you "
till " venku I found you ".

Then came the day.
that took my breath away.
she agreed to meet.
A romantic evening on a street.

her crazy black eyes.
so tough to break the ice.
I said it somehow
meet at Kala talao.

not sure if I am ready.
moving ahead slow and steady
just before our hearts clash.
making sure its not going rash.

you cleared it.

you smile gave a way.

heart was down with pain
but your eyes were worth it.
the way you spoke
every word, bliss.

your body never what I craved.
The kiss, it was my life you saved.
slowly but steadily heart was back
your love filled all the crack.

unable to accept the way you live.
unable to express love,want to give.
probably that was why.
u thought it wasnt worth a try.

The way it came to end.
broken down unable to mend.
I had my pride to not show.
pain inside me, unable to grow.

finally accept defeat.
It was love, couldn't beat
I came to you, to ask a chance.
you accepted me and gave a seat.
