Dr.V.K. Kanniappan

(17.10.1944 / Madurai, Tamil Nadu, India)

I can’t withstand while your straight looking eyes torture me!


O’ my love!
Even if the sharp sword kills me by piercing,
while falling down, I shalln’t die by touching
the sand with the chest!

But,
While the lids of your straight looking eyes
like one thousand swords torture my eyes,
I can’t withstand!

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
