apple sweat

we  could  have  met  then

if I were to  sit in

watching the apple sweat

if I were to  fill in

we could have introduced

if I were to put in

that extra  effort and know

you     many    years    ago

spotting    that   long   hair

we   could    have   begun

to love..




bed of nails

all this while

I was lying on

this bed of nails

as the wind and rain

gorges my skin

from up above

keeping me distracted

I was totally unaware

of the pain

prickling below


when you came

into my life

and rested yourself on me

blocking me from the wind

and rain

only then did I

regain consciousness

and realize the discomfort

of having to lie

on this bed of nails..
