Leslie Xavier Poems
From Brutus With Love
It hurts when you know that trust is something you can't get. The great Julius Caesar didn't and so was the fate of many before and after him. When kindness, love, concern and honesty get interpreted as weakness, they rise and stab you from behind at the first possible chance and then leave you to bleed, a sad painful death. At least Brutus finished off the King fast, some mercy. But will I be spared from the pain... No, I think... They say the King of Rome,
With A Virgin...
A lazy touch and it all began, her passions ignite in a welcome shiver. In a soft husky voice she opens the door, baby take me down that winding road.
I Miss My Green Meadow
It's amazing! But when you are left all alone, you can only look back, and cherish the moments spent under the sun, in that green Meadow... The season's shifted I guess, with it the landscape too.
No Binge Benefits Here
I turned and walked; left, away from the shade. Sun burnt my back, walk turned brisk; towards the only place here,
Just Words And Pen Left For Me...
Was there for them all; me, who couldn’t stop feeling, who wouldn’t stop worrying, and couldn't stop crying for them;

The pain up my spine, through to the emote seat. The burden so huge, from baggage a couple months,
My Madonna Of Santhome
The lady greets with the warmest of smiles, as if she’s saying, I know you boy. I stand charmed in front of her, awe struck by her beauty and grace.
Poor Man's Lullaby
Remember how you slipped off, into dreamland with all the peace. Remember how I sang for you, as you dozed off, saying goodnight that day.
Pain In The Tale
What will it take, I wonder; to get all of 'em to realise. That I ain't sinister, I ain't bad; I ain't a pain either, but none hears my tale.
It's all my fault, I agree; my insecure heart making me fret. I worry about what won't be, about losing you to the miles.
Was singing out loud for a change, I was off to Kochi, where my roots run deep. Looking around in the train I thought, who’s here more happy than me.
Down Where I Belong
Yesterday I waited there by the dusty road, noon lashing whips on my scarred body. My heart shedding tears – of joy and pain, as my body gets drained – spirits and the water within.
Thy Name Is Woman
Think of it, the world never leaves us with any time to rest. It revolves, evolves and the cycle of creation and ‘re-creation’, which also involves a fair bit of destruction, has left us huffing and puffing, just trying to keep pace. It has been happening since eternity, scary right.
We humans call ourselves ‘masters of this world’ now, a title we earned through our race’s perseverance amidst the earth’s unending supply of life-enriching gifts as well as its life-changing and punishing ways of
