Loving You

Reading Time: 1 minute

Here’s an intense love by Nilakshi, in Different Truths, that catalogues her love.


Let me talk of love…


Of Fossil fragrance

Of rock-hard chest

Of ponytailed haze

Of man-bun frame

Paco guitar

And Rodin-hands.


Derelict muscles

Toothless grin


Blazing eyes

Cushiony hands

Grey- beard

Wodehouse wit

And Saigal songs.


Picasso pate

Wit-rimmed specs

Baritone calls

Stingray touch

Rattlesnake moves

Mehdi ghazal

And a Pompeii heart.
