Dark Lady

With her seductiveness she allures, Conque’ring all incestuous values. Beaut tinged with Medusa’s tandems. Gifted to charm hormonal totems. Sweet mistress of promiscuous blue, Pruning hopes with her vulva’s dew. Slide through the crevice betwixt her legs Akin you be to hades’ accursed dregs.             […]

भूल – भुलैया

मन का तो काम भटकना ही है जीवन पथ पर पर भटक गया जीवन मेरा मन की गलियों में मन  की गलियाँ  ! जो सिर्फ अबूझ पहेली ही हैं लक्ष्य नहीं, स्वप्निल  मरुजल हैं, जो स्वाति का मेघ नहीं , उन इंद्रधनुष  के झूठे , मोहक रंगों में, है उलझ […]
