2nd April 2004

If you did not love me,
Give me back my heart
For it was killing me
Like the poison from a dart:
The love inside my tortured heart for you.

If you did not love me,
Tell me right away
For it was killing me
In slow motion night and day:
What made me wanna fly away with you.

If you did not love me,
Let me know at once
For it was killing me
These last few torturous months:
What filled my heart with tons of love for you.

20th March 2004

The one I loved cared not a bit
If for her silent teardrops fell
From morning until night,
Waiting for some light to brighten up the darkness
Which once like day was lit
Even down inside a well
Only then shall there be light
And instead of blindness sight that saw with sharpness
If outpourings of the heart had been in vain
Like nomads in the desert asking God to make it rain.

The one I loved has sealed her lips
And cared not if I bled to death
For many now a day,
Waiting for a ray of light to pierce the darkness
In circles or in strips
Which engulfed the length and breadth
Of a sky that's dark and gray
And a heart no longer gay but full of sadness
As the one I loved still uttered not a word
Like responding to my letter was preposterous or absurd.

15th January 2004

If time could be frozen like ice on a tray
I'll do it at once for a night and a day
For us both to catch up on time that's been lost
Whilst everyone else was imprisoned by frost.

If time could be frozen like ice in a pond 
I'll do it at once with a magical wand
For us to find comfort in each other's arms
And me to get drunk on your feminine charms.

If time could be frozen like ice on a rink
I'll do it at once without stopping to think
For us both to watch stars explode in the sky
If off to the heavens we both chose to fly.

If time could be frozen by magical words
For us both to fly off together like birds
I'll do it at once for a night and a day
But only if your heart said: tell him okay.

21st October 2003

How ravishing you looked today,
O you without a rival,
From all that I have seen,
O future beauty queen of the world.

If soon you had to go
I just wanted you to know
That there's a part of me
That wanted not to lose a gal like thee.

Lunchtime was too short
For something of this sort
So in a little hurry hence was I
And kindly do excuse me
If I've no right to tell thee
That I don't ever wanna say good-bye.

17th October 2003

What I was told was true
That, yes, indeed were you truly beautiful
And what I saw today
Just took my breath away by the lungful.

A day in paradise
I spent because your eyes were but heavenly
Which no less was your face
Which took me to a place just as lovely.

A whole day since we met
And stunned was I still yet by your beauty
Which someone ought to write about
In black and white out of duty.

16th October 2003

If beauty had a rating on a scale of one to ten
Yours would be a twenty was the judging done by men
As women would be overcome by jealousy and such
And when the votes were counted theirs would not amount to much.

Miss Universe was lucky that you chose not to compete
For had you done so total would've been her swift defeat
But lucky was the s.o.b. in whose embrace were you
And if my feeling were by that betrayed what could I do?

Had Nefertiti, queen of Egypt, been alive today
For beauty such as yours for sure there would be hell to pay
And she who once commanded armies wouldn't hesitate
To have you barred from public view perhaps inside a crate.

How favored by the gods was one as beautiful as you
As one gal in a million had such looks or make that two.

22nd September 2003

You smart. You drive car. Car big, expensive-looking.
I stupid. I standing on road, looking other way.
You see me but no stop. You no horn either.
I see you last minute and jump.
I stupid perhaps, but you evil.
You no care if car run over stupid pussycat.
Perhaps your luck better next time.

Other day saw bigger, more expensive-looking car stop for mama pussycat and babies to cross over to other side.
Front seat passenger even got down to check if all clear ahead before moving on.
Happened on same stretch of road leading away from your area of residence.
Good neighbors perhaps. For us stupid pussycats.

17th September 2003

For months I haven't written
Or sent to you a card;
Forgive me, forgive me, 
If that was not too hard.

Have I been all that busy
To have forgotten you?
Accuse me, accuse me,
But that I couldn't do.

Did I still harbor feelings
As I did once for you?
Still crazy, still crazy,
And nuts about you too.

Why haven't you responded,
Not even once till now?
Still early, still early,
And if you were to, how?

I still remembered fondly
How you looked so divine;
How lovely, how lovely,
If you were someday mine!
