A FEW PERCEPTIONS
A CLOSED SHOP
I stand outside a closed shop
To buy everything I like.
But when the shop keeper is seen near
I hide behind his shop
And start thinking 'why at all I must buy things'.
Given on the forehead it is affection,
Given on the palm it is love,
Given on the lips it is lust
But what is craved for alone makes a real kiss.
THE END OF THE WORLD
It has to come with a flash news
Written across the sky as, 'THE END'
In the languages written of all regions.
And we have to cry in vein, 'NEXT SHOW PLEASE'
And He will look the most dejected then
With a face He Himself has never seen!
WHEN WE SLEEP
When some sleep they look like children
Let them not open their eyes, let us observe them for long.
When a few sleep they look like corpses
For sleep is the brother of death.
How do I look like I know not.
