Drowned By Love

Poem By Alice Baudoin

~ Born from your lips ~
I have danced around you,
Spent my childhood around your being,
Circled you like a spider, with dreams
That somewhere in time, you started tearing out ~ one by one ~
Leaving space in between for tear drops or dead leaves

I have juggled your ideas
Discovering worlds,
Becoming aware of things,
Feeling nourished in coming-of-age,
Finding sleep, dreams ~ nights filled with stars ~
Building health, tissue, future, and a hope

I was your creation,
~ Sparkling fuss in the palm of your hand ~
A snowflake, a day,
A fraction of time through the stars going astray
You've opened my eyes,
Guided my steps,
Caught my hand in your heartbeat

Only sun I remember
Abundantly burning
Over the endless fields of a love that was
One side of my face flooded by sun,
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
