With you my love...

There are no shadows cast

On the peeling pale yellow walls

In the flickering light from the



Up above, the fan continues

to move in  a circular motion;

Slow and  steady. The mirror,

mirrors the  unkempt feeling

in the room.


The damp smell mixed

With the smells of love

Heightens the silence.

And the dripping water

From the basin tap sounds

Like an explosion.


The pillows of the bed

Lie on the torn carpet below.

The sheets; crumpled

Barely cover our bodies



Your eyes look at me

Every few seconds.

The contentment on your

Face. Sleep has eluded us for

Long, but slowly the sandman

Creeps in close to you.


Outside, the bright sunlit

Corridors are bustling.

But the noise doesn’t reach us.

Its you and me, like always.

Together. Me lying by your side

And the hint of a smile on your



Suddenly, all the trouble,

The long distance travel,

The lies, the stories cooked

Up, are all but just right.
