24 Carats of Love

Fifteen years of faith

Five years of a world together

Three years of honeymoon

Tearing apart the years – under law

Cost of 24 carats of love


Slung mud on the face

Questions piercing a battered soul

Portals under the big red bindi – stern

Eyes and ears all around gobbling, waiting for pieces

Cost of 24 carats of love


Unfinished whims and broken dreams

Covering mutilated dead bodies

Carefully medicated cuts and burns

Unrelenting hands pulling, snatching stained covers off

Cost of 24 carats of love


A beginning of an end

End of a beginning

End of all ends

Beginning of a new beginning

Looking at life – paying price

For the cost of 24 carats of love

    Beginning of a new beginning

  11. captivating….loved the first para.. beautiful.


  12. while most pple ponder over beginnings and ends ,life gets bored gets up and leaves midway.


  13. understand that you went to calcutta ,how come no stories from your stay there? was hoping for instresting observations and anecdotes to flood our parched spaces.


  14. since u are always sighing and swaying about rain ,thot i d share this observation with u . there seems to be too much hype about rain everywhere. and absolut no talk about monsoon .
    rain to dream,romance,make love, sing,dance,romanticize,create,think.
    but what does rain want .does she really want to give without getting ? and wat does she do when she is isolated ,abandoned cos she has turned into monsoon,
    rain is really getting very very cliched .so much ,that no one really cares any more and hence -acid rain.
    and please dont give me ur poetic words as to how much u love rain and will always be there for her ,cos all said and done ,u are doing it from ur comfort zone.


  15. rain boltey money porlo – heard of the rainmaker? he waits for no clouds ,no rain .he creates it.
    saw a play,or film,or book  cant remember -romance of the rainmaker.hindi was also done- barishwala.google uncle shud give u better info.


  16. The cost of 24 carats of love today is ironically more than 24 carats of anything today man…
    I\’ll take time to understand or even get anywhere near assimilating this one. Meloncholy you see, has not been my companion since some time. Now-a-days I\’m only all extreme. But when I do, I\’ll probably add my two cents to your 24 carats…


  17. Wow, loved this one!! Tell me something how do you come up with poems? Did you have someone/some incident in mind when you penned this one?? Damnit!! You really cook??? Wow!! Someday you must lay out a lavish spread for me!!! Godddd, who told you I\’m getting married, NAWWTTT!!! I said my friends and cousins are getting hitched not me, eekksss!! Right now that\’s like \’the road not taken\’!!!


  18. : S Wht is this dear Horus????? Am low and down and beat and u say no bossom but a shoulder instead and i come here to the shoulder only to see it wilting andkinda bruised under the bent of 24 carats!!!
    Awww man!!! Melencholy!!! darn u stupid moronic state of mind!!! sad and regretful and contemplative and all tht!!! and tht too in the middle of a stifling summer of 40+ degrees! sheesh! u think tht mind wud be closed due to over heating! but noooooo………this stupid brain will run back,. across mountins and terrians of rocky memories and make things more miserable! Incosiderate stupid head i tellya!
    *sigh* the way u write abt this stuff, romantic and then not so romantic in the end…..must be banned, u cannot write like this so as to move the unassuming reader to tears and sniffling.
    24 carats? u had 24 carats of it? no wonder i was left with the poor quality kind…..u had the good shiny golden stuff all along!
    Its tough, isnt it? hugsssss, loads of them and oh u\’ll also remember me for this, wht the heck….those chest busts tooo! 24 carsts deserve tht, eh? ; )
    take care sweet horus…..
