What is Wide?


What is wide?
The blue sky is wide. So is the sea
Her smile too.
As wide as my feet are long.

What is bold?
Green is bold. Forest green carpets my world.
The sun is bold. He comes out to play
Whether I like it or not.
She is bold too. She asked me on a date
With wide bold eyes, a day gone by.

What is soft?
Water is soft. She tickled me today
As I took my bath.
The wind is soft. He nudged me on
The day I went to see her.
Her lips too. When they met with mine.

What is hard?
Diamonds are hard. So hard
And she wants one – harder still to get.
Waking from my dream-
That is the hardest yet.

The Devil's Bargain





I made friends with the devil
And loved hating him
For his want for friendship
And my love for company
We made a bargain
That was to last nine months
The knowledge of which
I was never to tell.
I told him my secrets
And he loved me in turn
As much as a devil can.
At length he used my secrets
And blackmailed my trust
And within my heart
A hatred grew
That after the nine months
I had become the devil
And him a better man

Having Your Cake and Eating It



I was afraid you would hate me
I am conceited, selfish, and unjust
No one but me could have you
Your love, your smiles, your jokes-
All mine
I was terrified you would love me
Ahh! That strange word, the nerves
What would I do then- love you back?
With what- my broken soul?
I was mortified you would leave me
Out in the cold, out of the fold
Of your wondrous company
