The Waiting Game

She sits still and in silence

watching the blank screen

empty like her mind,

the cursor blinks tauntingly

again and again and again

waiting impatiently for her fingers

to start dancing on the keys

to spill her thoughts, her memories,

the blood of her enemies

it waits for a confession,

her damning admission

yet she sits there, watching,

I know I’ve been behind with my daily poetry but I will try to do more today. 




The Elusive Scribe

Capturing thoughts that flit and float,
with flailing hands and fingers unclenched.
Flowing words can’t fill the paper,
of this elusive scribe hidden in the shadows.

Hunting dreams in the subconscious world,
where monsters live and dangers are real.
The scribe looks for stories to tell,
real or imagined, she doesn’t care.

No one knows where she came from,
try as they might they can’t find her.
From the depths of the shadows she lives,
tasting sunshine and moonbeams where no one sees.

Playful Puppy

my baby boy

Playful puppy barking like crazy
my quiet world is rocked, why are you so noisy?
Where’s my slipper you little puppy
stop wagging your tail, how can i be angry?

Playful puppy running like crazy
I might step on you when you zoom so dizzily.
Now, where’s your toy bone squeaky?
play with it for a minute, don’t be so sneaky.

Playful Jake
Playful puppy, how I love you so dearly
you remove my stress so adorably.
Your cute button eyes melt my heart easily
fluffy puppy, you make me laugh heartily.



Christmas is Here

Since one of my cousins told us that we need to prepare something for our Christmas party, I came up with this short poem. Even if the presentation didn’t pull through we still had plenty of fun and laughter with several intermission numbers from our younger guests.

To all of you who are still enjoying the festivities, Merry Christmas from me to you and your loved ones. 🙂


Christmas is Here

Now that Christmas is here
let us rejoice and be of good cheer
for we are with friends and family dear
make no room for sadness or of tear.

Now that Christmas is here
let us remember our loved ones who are not here
but let us smile and whisper a prayer for they can hear
how we miss them, love them and wish they were near.

Now that Christmas is here
let us raise our glasses and drink some beer!
Let us be glad and pray that this roller coaster year
will end on a merry note to welcome the new year.



Down the Road

Down the Road

Walk with me down the road
and share with me your story.
I’ll tell you mine if you are ready
let’s not keep secrets you and I.
This path we take is for us
to discover the truth in us.

Walk with me down the road
let us learn more about each other.
Share with me your stories old
your ups even your downs.
Don’t be afraid I won’t judge you
you see, I have the same fears.

Walk with me down the road
let us be strangers no more.
What I am I will share with you
and you I’ll keep with me
for at the end of the road we’ll find
whether we are destined to be.





Soft dawn is breaking
I hear the birds readying for the morning
the sun is slowly creeping
over the mountains it keeps on climbing.

I rouse myself from the deepest slumber
thinking thoughts and not of blunder
I turn on the shower
and stepped into the coldness of water.

I woke up to a new day
yesterday’s pain is not of today
there is no reason why I should sway
from my dreams and goals of yesterday.

For the morning offers a new beginning
so I will start my day right by smiling.
I will think of the morning sun that is so beguiling
and be inspired, be an inspiration and be a blessing.





Wishes, oh, wishes
let them happen to me.
I wish for the starlight
to bring you to me.
In these arms of mine
let me show you,
that love tastes like
strawberries on
such delicious lips .

Wishes, oh, wishes
let them be granted, oh please.
I wish for endless nights
and mornings with thee.
for today I’m on my own
but tomorrow is unknown
I’ll wait for my wishes
let them hear my wishes
until they lead you to me.



Waiting For You

Waiting For You

I tremble when you’re near me
right from the start I knew we’re meant to be
your eyes so daring, boldly looking
caressing, loving.

I can’t help but feel breathless
with every touch you give
let me fan the flames with my own
kisses and passionate embrace.

I savor each moment when we’re together
my heart yearning when we’re apart
watching the hands of the clock
waiting till you come home in my arms.



Queen in Me

Okay, so this very short poem is something just popped into my head a few days ago. Just thought I’d put it here for your enjoyment. 😀


Queen in Me

Don’t treat me like a princess

for I am already a queen.

My kingdom is where I want it to be.

I have had enough of charming words

and teasing under the tree.

Woo me with actions and let’s see

whether you can delight the queen in me.



Enter the Night

This one I wrote in the dead of the night. I don’t know what possessed me (maybe, the little ink elf) to write this. I just stirred from my reverie then started pounding on the keyboards to type this poem. 🙂


Enter the Night

The night fast approaches

I sit back and watch as darkness encroaches

over streetlamps and traveling coaches

enveloping sweethearts exchanging smooches.

The night fast approaches

I could see my pen leaving blotches

on paper white and grainy notches

leaving hands with black stained patches.

The night fast approaches

I could finally see the moon that bewitches

lovers arm in arm sitting on benches

unaware of the night that fast approaches.
