"On a Good day"


On a good day, 

I shouldn't be here kneeling at his feet on  rough rocks,

Listening to his rage and rant restlessly.

With flood running down my eyes.

 On a good day,

I should have been in the kitchen,

Preparing heavenly meals for him,

With sweet smile shinning on his face,

As he sings my praise.

On a good day,

I should be worshipped like the saint i am,

And not whipped like a slave over a sin i never sinned.

On a good day,

I should be bold and brave

And not weak like a weakling,

Shaking ceaselessly in front of him like a cold hen in cold days.

On a good day,

I should have been his spouse,

And not his spinster.

So,if today is not a good day

When will the good day come?

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Dear Valentine

Val' as you are,

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
