Mellifluous & Gargalesthesian

All the beauty of the world - captured in words and images

“'D’you know what happens when you hurt people?' Ammu said. 'When you hurt people, they begin to love you less. That’s what careless words do. They make people love you a little less.'”

Absent-hearted

You lose your heart like people
lose keys, small change and the
slip of paper on which they wrote
down the password of their email.
They can leave it like that, right?
Just call the locksmith, pay exact
amount and make a new account.
And a heart? Yours is easy to find
because I can smell its leaking from
far away. Ferruginous with a little
scent of green tea. Pour me a cup,
please,
and I’ll put it back in place.

“You can’t expect people to love you the same way you love them, to give back what you give to them. We all diverge in our opinions, capabilities and values. The key is to find joy in caring for those who are worth the effort.”

And she is greedy. Greedy for power, for honour, for love.

Here

I close my eyes
and you’re here between
the wrinkles on my sheets.

You’re the warmth in which
I can finally fall asleep,
the only dream in which
I don’t try to wake myself
by screaming out your name.

I open my eyes
and you’re here between
the folds of my thoughts.
