About the Author






Nothing but Love


Every morning I wake up to your smile

Each night you weave yourself into my dreams

So intricately you become a part of me

Leaving me to marvel - the beauty of love

Your thoughts breathe life into my soul -

Left forlorn by unforeseen betrayals

How easy t'is to soothe the pain

Making use of your immaculate care

Your proximity elates me to no end

Fills me with cheer and erases all malice

What strength are you made of, love?

That you become the elixir to all that is called affliction



When Love Became Saviour



When she was a little girl long ago

Innocent, filled with ignorance about the world

She had slowly learnt to live with pain

Or her memories would never let her grow up

Those hurting memories of broken trust

When immaculate love was but, betrayed

That dirty touch of a trusted kin

Those vile looks of an older acquaintance

She kept it a secret as advised
