Naughty Love

Kiss me already


It’s rainy and cold

The air is heavy with longings

Of warm bedsheets and you


My imagination has your face

Warm in between my two palms

And your slow breath

Against mine

Sending trickles

Down my body

Spreading goosebumps in it’s path

And pre-preparing my feminine body

For the wonders your man can do to me.

Kiss me already!

But before that

Lemmie hug you long and warm

Lemmie hold you…

Inhale your exhale

Let us cuddle and stay in eternity

For a brief moment

You’re all I want.

Beautiful Love*

Love Is


– your first poem to me

– the pride with which you introduce me as your woman

– the rebukes and corrections you give in love

– you telling me I’m the only family you have

– you grooming me into a woman of greater virtue and class

– the sweet messages I wake up to

– the intensity in your eyes when you say I love you

Love is you.

Try listing out the things you love about him or her………….
Did it require so much effort and pondering? If they don’t get to ten should you feel bad?… it a bad sign?

Evolving Love


Through acts of love, rebukes

And huddles overcome

You can actually hold still

And hear us evolving

I did not love you like I do now

If you rewind a month away

I did not trust you like I do now

If you fast-back October

I did not believe in us like I do now

If you replay a season before

I never knew I would come to fall so

Desparately in love with you

And I wonder if papa knows the

Date for our wedding even before

We set it

And knows we need to go through

All this growth, and pain and beauty

Before our hearts and souls say I do

And knows the aftermath Experiences of our marriage that

A part of me dreads and a part of me

Looks forward to

That every day brings you closer

To knowing every one of my demons

And how I bruise and scar and cry

Ever too frequently

And how I forget things ever too easily

Scares me

Yet I can only but stare

And hope our love will survive it

And our strength will indeed

Build for us

A family with a heritage

That will resonate for years of posterity.


                             Natasha- City

Relationships that survive the process of two strangers exposing their flaws to each other…misunderstandings caused by human nature and the huddles life itself throws at man is a sight to behold.

And in this century…for it to survive marriage and build a heritage is another miracle.

From hindsight it’s beautiful to watch the process of evolution……..indeed it’s interestingly beautiful.


Beautiful Love*

Let’s Circle Again

The adventure of unraveling

An interesting soul…

A personality that is able to do things

No other being can do to you

You come to find that

The gaze



Of getting to know him…

As you two circle around each other

Is a thrill that can never be compared

To any other moment of history

You two shall share together…

When bones shall become old

And you’ve both made love in every

Possible Way

A decade after.

Beautiful Love*



Serious and coy

Flirty and motherly

A man’s mind, a woman’s arms

Her delicate palms, her strong heart

She’s the woman who’s got my heart

With a cute tie on curvy hips

I watch her walk out of her office

Those long slender legs

Slid into my car and said ‘drive’

Her analytical brains

Prepared my financial budget

Able hands built our home

Soft lips

Eased tension from a life time of

Tensed muscles

Her softness

Cushioned my hardness

She changed my world

Sunlight in a dense forest

Rain on patched desert

She brought meaning to my life

Strict yet tender

Strong yet vulnerable

This is the woman I’m

In love with

And will forever be

We were meant to be.



What do men look for in a woman?……

Beautiful Love*

Our Vows

I remember….

The first time I saw you

All you have always been

To which I’ve been blind to

That father saw….but I couldn’t see

A man of wisdom

A man with a soft heart

You wear perseverance

Like a tailor’s suit…..

You’re the emblem of patience

How sweet it is to know….

That I am with someone who came For me even when

He couldn’t yet see beauty….

But saw only my future….

Someone who will still find me Beautiful with stretch marks even as we age

The spirit that you bring

Refused to be quenched by my

Silly self and Childish attitudes

Staring at your soul…and beautiful


That gives its all and calls me

Family; though i’m not blood.

There is where I fell in love

I fell!

I’m consumed!

I’m overwhelmed!

Did you know that I’m

crazy- overwhelmed!

I vow in marriage

That at times I’ll fail you

I vow

That at times I will fall short

But in failures and shortcomings

I won’t tap out

I won’t give up

To you and only you

Today I commit

To you and only you

I submit

I’ve learnt that he loved me

Enough to give me you

Even when I couldn’t see you

So I’m willing to stay strong

To the very end.

Painful Love

Break Up

Only emotions can describe it

Only the heart of true lovers

Can know its true fear

It’s true pain

It’s true terror

Don’t tell me you understand

When you’ve not spent a night

Rolling under the sheets seeking

The face of sleep that is determined

To allude your pain stricken soul

Till dawn breaks

Over your sighing heart

Don’t tell me you understand

The fear in the heart of a man

– paralyzed

That predisposes him to driving

Mad at midnight

In a miserable t- shift worn inside out

The fear

That predisposes him to farting

Unconsciously in front of his lady

Yet to be ex

– His brain cells interpret the action

As the least important thing

In the world

The fear

That predisposes him to kneeling

On a rocky ground oblivious and

Stoic to any pain but that of the heart

Rapturing at the prospect of a breakup

In the face of this

Day still breaks

And life goes on

Without our permission

The world’s duty calls…

And we must respond

Howbeit with lifeless eyes

For the world is now devoid

Of joy In her eyes

And life suddenly has no

Meaning in his eyes….

If only all could be untrue

So our hearts could

Be blinded to the events of pain

And we could love against the pain

Kiss against the Hurt

And choose to stay inspite

Of the odds

Forgive me…

If I can’t….

It’s over….

It’s definitely over.

                    – that was how sure I was

In memorial to a breakup that almost occurred.
