The Taj Mahal Bench

Do not lower yourself onto this bench

It is not meant for you

Not for lonely people like you

 

It is a bench made only for lovers

who glide over the stormy waves of love

without losing their way to temptation

 

It is a bench made only for lovers

with the same focus in mind,

much like the emperor

who built the monument here,

a fruit of his passion

or perhaps his obstinacy

for the world to marvel

 

But, do not lower yourself onto this bench

Come with the perfect partner

As the bench awaits you, eagerly

Being Lonely

I thought that loneliness was bliss

Until you left me

The lifeless house

And the threatening noise of the fan

Disturbing my unspoken thoughts

Distractions no longer entertain

My unfocused mind

I realized that silence is golden

Only for those on the other side

I got what I wanted

Only to fight looming misery

Waiting desperately for your return

When you would ask for silence
