Why did you run away from me?
Without a clue … a sign
Yeah, it is true that I hold an empty account
And, that I do not drive a car
Is that the reason why?

Gaze into my eyes
And, you’ll see the light
Of love
Just the way every inch of my skin
Has felt your caress
that ran down through your fingers 

I am sitting here feeling numb
Not knowing what to do
With an empty glass of sorrows
And, a room full of darkness

how do I say, without tears
that it hurts?

(Why did you run away from me?
Without a clue … a sign)

Her Breast :
She left me
When the night Bird sang a song

of farewell in the month of February
But, before she could leave
She offered me her voluptuous breast
Full of poison
Which I sucked until she pulled it away
Now, I wander through the night in search of her
To tell her how I spew venom.

The sun has never set today
Thus, keeping me awake
And, has taken away from my embrace,
the warm, cosy night.

My heart was brimming with love, for you
But you cut my lips
and then left me to die, bleeding
On that day on Valentines

Yet I sang for you
with my heart and soul
on that day on Valentines

My love, How I wish
I could see you tonight
before I fall asleep
send  me your love,
Mend my broken heart
Call out my name - AJ
as huskily as you could
and, leave me alone 
to drench in your sighs

Feed me , feed me some love
Feed me with your sexy kohl eyes
Stir it with nectar 
And, whip it with honey
add some chocolate
Turn it to brown
And, turn me on..
( feed me some love)

Kiss me now 
Hold me in your grip
Burn me down 
lets beat the odds 
And, fight the dark. 
(Feed me some love)

Love me in June
Caress me in November
Wink me a goodbye in February
Hold me, hold me tight..Will ya!

Here, I summon you
To sit across the table
And, let's make some dirty love on the streets 
( feed me some love)

അഞ്ജലി തൻ ആരോമലേ, 
നെറുകയിൽ ചൂടിയ മയില്പീലിയാലോ,
അഞ്ജലി തൻ അജ്ഞനമിഴിയാലോ നിൻ അഴക്‌? 
ഓടക്കുഴൽ തഴുകും, നിൻ അധരങ്ങൾ മൂളും
സപ്തസ്വരങ്ങളാലോ നിൻ മാധുര്യം?
ഈ ഉലകം തൻ ഉള്ളിൽ ഒളിപ്പിക്കും ചകോരനേ,
അതിലോലമായ നിൻ പാദങ്ങളിൽ കിലുങ്ങും
ചിലങ്കയിലോ പ്രപഞ്ച സംഗീതം?
ചോരനേ, നിൻ കടകണ്ണുകളാൽ ആരേ നീ
ചാരേ വിളിക്കുന്നു?

आज फिर छू  लूँ उसे मैं 
इन सीली सीली रातों से 
छीलूं पंखुड़ी जैसा उसका अंग 
होंठों की धार से 
सजाऊँ सेज मैं  आज 
उसकी सुलगती हुई सीत्कारियों से 
भीगा दूँ तपता हुआ ये बदन उसकी 
नज़ाकत में | 

तेरेलिये बस तेरेलिये
ये रात और नशा 
तू ही तो बेवफा , तू ही तो बेवफा (तेरेलिये)

सौंधी सी खुशबू तेरी
और ये बिलखती रात
मद्धम मद्धम सी
सिसकियाँ लेती हुई तन्हा,
बेज़ुबान इस प्यार को कर गयी  (तेरेलिये)

नशा ये प्यार का ढल ही जाएगा 
कच्चे रंग की तरह धीमे धीमे 
घुल जाएगा 
उसके कजरारे अखियनन में ।

This afternoon, I was hunting for hotels for my luncheon.  As there are not too many options at Royapettah, Chennai, the area where I dwell, I decide to have my lunch from a hotel which is nearby where I reside.

As I progressed to the entrance, I see an old man approaching me and mumbling something. As he appeared extremely ugly, shabby and malodorous, I decide to give him an ignore and went in to order food as nothing came about.

But then, I knew from within that my conduct was inappropriate, considering his age factor.   When this thought started pricking me, I decide to approach him. As he saw me approaching, he got down to talk to me in English and politely requested me to buy him some food.  This behavior of his intrigued me.  Somewhere, I felt, he may have been cast out by his family members.  First time ever, I decide to buy someone, who is neither my friend nor family, something which he had asked for, and, that too for a homeless man.   I ordered food for him, got it parceled and I paid the bill for the gentle old man.

I became busy with munching down my lunch and by the time I was done, I could see him nowhere in the vicinity.  He had already left.

I walked down the junction, crossed the lane and I hear a weaker voice trying to reach me from far behind; “Saar, saar.  I bless you from bottom of my heart. You have provided food to an orphan a homeless”. 

I could very easily relate to the word orphan and the emotions attached to it.  My eyes got all teary. I requested him for a photograph with him and he replied with a smile “with all my heart, and with pleasure”. (in English) 

What could be his story?  

I could be that homeless man tomorrow, who knows. Despite we cling on to our family and friends, we live a farce life, where we make ourselves believe that we are amongst those fortunate who are bound by all family and friends.   Maybe, this gentle old man, also had the same feeling, until life knocked him down.
