A Familiar Face

Poem By Alice Baudoin

Child of your lips that I am
I have played around your arms,
Spent my childhood around your being

Circling you like a spider, with dreams
That you started tearing out, one by one
Leaving place in between

For reality drops;
A bouquet
Crystal like

I have been playing with your ideas
Discovering the world
Becoming aware of things

I am your creation
Sparkling fuss
In the palm of your hand

A snowflake today
Or elsewhere in time
Through stars astray

You've opened my eyes
Guided my steps
Holding my hand in your heartbeat

Only sun I remember
Abundantly burning
Over the endless dry fields of a girl

Named September
One side of my face flooded by sun
While the other drowned by love

One Last Desire

I have one last desire
Let me die
In the evening silence
By the sea

'So Long As There Is Life, There Is Struggle' -Harivansh Rai Bachchan-

Inexpressible pain
Like silence
Like a hand full of darkness

Those Who Wander

-to Amitabh Bachchan-

“Those who wander along the beach


Sometimes even gods are dying
And leave their traces on the sky
Like sunsets when they fall and die
Without smiling, without lying

Landing Like A Stranger

I mixed you up with the sky
In the end of the day

With the leaves

The Art Of Leaving Behind

Life is the art of leaving behind
A past and a passion for love
A mystery, a regret, a dishonorable moment,
An embarrassing instant of glory
