Fire of desire

By: Manas Chaturvedi (Leeuwnhawk)


I am holding a burning matchstick

from it’s tip, firmly in my hand

The fire is reaching it’s tip

Still I’m not trying to defend.


For this fire is nothing compared

to the fire burning inside my soul

The fire of desire to achieve my dreams,

and my life’s only goals.

My co-bloggers insist on me posting something new today

I am out of any new ideas , I have nothing much to say

But determined to write something and not to disappoint them again

I just wrote this sweet little quatrain!


Shadow and Me

By: Manas Chaturvedi


The sun has long set in

The darkness begins to crawl

Cold, dark and disfigured

My shadow on the wall


Long lost companions

Long time, no see

As I stare at my shadow

And the shadow stares back at me!

The unforgiving street

By: Manas Chaturvedi


I stand here in the middle of this street, all alone
Trying to meet new faces, trying to seek the unknown
But the journey is big, small’s my feet
Better get going on this unforgiving street…
