Will Destiny Bring a Break of Dawn?

How can he forget
her raining of kisses
on his sister's kid
glancing at him
before giving each one?

Their torrid love affair
was to caper on in bits of paper
and in the sleepless corridors
of the chest and head.

Their teeny hearts weren't
aware of their different castes,
knew neither religion nor status
nor the sects nor the vultures
nor the future and cared
nor any other snooping snipers.

All the days, she gave him smiles
were the Valentine Days for them.
But lurve was in their hearts
which felt flip to flight
or to sink down in a pool of sorrow.

They cleft his wings and pierced
his heart with fierce snickers
and threw him out with inner wounds.
With his sheet of degree
he bade bye to the world
of marauding wolves
and served to please the people
in the west and north of the land.

Before he leaves this earth,
may God bless him to fall in her eyes,
those haunting gulches
feeding his heart and mind
with streaming thoughts and feelings?
As the Almighty feels happy
to play tricks on him often,
He will, he hopes give him a chance
to see her again and share some snippets
and let the floods of tears dammed
flow down in rills on their cheeks.

    as if watched an Indian movie! I am shocked with recent famous movie. It neither looks like a Tamil movie nor as an Englifh Movie. CNN could have done a better movie through its one of the budding cameramen and journalists....We have so many issues to tackle in our home land, but we are trying to solve the problems of others...Rajendran Muthiah! Regarding your poem it is not only our culture is an issue, our men have no enough work! (Report) Reply
