Love, as dictated by my pen.

Ah, the joy of putting pen on paper - it's like running into an old friend unexpectedly, the conversation often turns out to be pleasant and ...unpredictable! And, so it is with this experiment, I command not what my hand decides to scribble, it is the pen I hold that dictates what my thoughts are to be, coloring them as it paints a picture, mere wisps of outlines seen only to the discerning eye to begin with but more defined as the ink begins to dry...

Trailing epithets that demand to be associated with the lazy eyes - dreamy, beguiling... :)

From my archives, more for relevance than anything spectacular - A slight lifting of the corners of the mouth, an almost imperceptible smoothening of the crinkles of the forehead, perhaps a dimple that winks at us from one cheek…a small wave rising from the lips, touching upon every feature of the face, gently coaxing the eyes to speak, to evoke, creating magic for the one who receives it…a smile.

My surrender complete.

wow :)
How do you think of such things?

What do you think about the nature of this realization- is this an one-time irreversible event? or is it a condition with a not-so-clear equilibrium?

IBH said...

I second K's comment..

How could you think of such things?;)

i am growing to be a big fan of ur reflections blog more than the short story one...i think this is more versatile! :)getting a sneak peek into all sorts of materials that you can offer :))

RS said...

To kamal: :)) I half expected to see the cute crying baby link again!

To anon: hmm...interesting question. I guess the answer would depend on age and maturity. As we grow older, as the relationship grows stronger we hover close to equilibrium perhaps.

To ibh: thanks :)) Do visit the other site too, lest the raconteur should get lonely :)

Thats amazing.

I was given to understand by another blogger who frequents your blog, that your blogging diction is very very good. So decided to take a peek. To say the least, I was not disappointed. Impressive.

Maybe you should keep up your date with the pen more often.

simply WOW !

An eternity ago, when we still kissed,
I stole a peek at her closed eyes,
During a particularly passionate kiss,
And wondered what pictures played,
In those eyes that dreamt my dreams.

PS: It's probably obvious, but, note that it's "my dreams", not "dreams of me". I don't want to come across as being conceited.

PPS: Do you think that was "feminine"? I have been told that some of the people that read my comments think they are "feminine". I fail to see what logic that conforms to. *confused* ( I wrote this when I first read your post - but held back from posting because of this :-/ )

PPPS: To those that are concerned... (I see no reason why you should be) - I'm not KP, KP is not me.


RS said...

To P~K: Sema compliment po, thanks :)

To KSP: Thanks, mikka nandri :))

To eshwar: Welcome here and thanks a lot :)

To ANM (Satish): Ah...the curtains open to reveal our own poet from Lexington :)

In response to your:

PS - "...I don't want to come across as being conceited..."

You never do.

PPS - No, I don't think your comments are "feminine"...they are beautiful, I have already asked you when you are going to start posting these in your blog...would love to read them. I wish you wouldn't hold back from posting :(

RT said...
