Bodies

How many bodies
do you want me to pile up
before you are
well and truly mine?

You knew very well
all along that
I was all yours
even before I nailed
the first coffin shut

What is it that you desire
from all the sins I collect
What is it that you enjoy
in all this blood I spill
What is it that you seek
in my murderous pale hands

I was always a sinner myself
from way before I first met you;
What is it that you gain by
moulding my sins
to the shapes of your choice

If it means that you are
eventually gonna be completely mine
I will rack up body after body after body
for my heart doesn't tire in pursuit of you

I am only running out of places
on my wrists to slit.

I want my heart to be broken by you

I want my heart to be broken by you
After I fall madly in love
To the point where I don't remember
What a world without you
As the centre of it, is anymore

I want you to leave
Completely without reason
After we've created sunshine
And rain and rainbows
Among the barren meadows
Of the vast wastelands
Our hearts had become
Before we met each other

I want you gone
When the sun is at it's peak
When the rain pours down the hardest
When you and I are the happiest
And I want my heart
To explode into multiple tiny pieces
And my entire soul to be deformed
Due to collateral damages

Maybe my heart is
Already exploding for you

Maybe all I'm trying to say is that
I really want you
Even if you were to
Leave my heart in
Powdery shatters

haiku (33)

Wish you are not sick
The party won't be as lit
When you are not here

You are a great lake

Shining in the bluest of blues,
You are a great lake
and in the vastness
of your immense glory
I, with my soul and body
not intact, am drowning

My limited sight
bound by my humanly anguish
can only gaze as far as
the foamy lake waves
crashing against the shore
which mesmerize me
through their irregular meditation

But as I drown and drown
and struggle for each breath
filling my lungs with You...
I experience the great depths
of beauty, hidden within
the trenches and deep waters
Unexplored in you

I am just a spec of dust
disappearing beneath your magnitude

Miracles

We are so small
With our conceptual high rises
Hovering over the heavy air

Our eyes too blurry
To focus on anything beyond
Our own little personal bubbles

And the air smells like magic
With distant chatter and indistinct laughter
Dispersing into the atmosphere

But we, in our individual selves
Are only specs of dust
In this great old suburban desert
Waiting for miracles to happen

But miracles only happen to
Those who make them happen

haiku (32)

Why do you do this
Why did you have to come here
Gorgeous heart wrecker!

haiku (31)

Could you stay afar?
My knees tremble under your
Misty amber eyes

haiku (30)

Please please keep raining
I want to get washed away
Your smile is painful

sinking

I am sinking
in her bathbomb eyes
and her deep brine tears
as I jumped into the
deep end of her
late fall heart

not knowing how to swim
yet.

would I

Now, you bring a smile to my lips
whenever I think of you
and I cannot keep my mind off you
but when it really comes down to it
would I really fight for you?
I want to set fire to
the image of you in my head
before it completely freezes
my head and successfully
ends up destroying me

windowpane

Water dripping down the windowpane
drop by drop by drop
and my tea getting colder and colder
sitting on my table in solitude
lights beaming in the distant city-scape
colours fading in the polluted rainy skies
and my mind losing itself, sinking
further and further into these untrodden territories 
as you roam the corners o my heart
that I didn't know existed

haiku (29)

I want good ice-cream
Finally it's warm enough!!
WHERE IS MY WALLET!!!!!???!!!

haiku (28)

In break at work now
Not enough syllables here
To dock all my thoughts

haiku (27)

I want to tango
To the rhythm of your heart
Two steps at a time

haiku (26)

Drowning in your eyes
That amber glow fills my lungs
This death is so sweet

haiku (25)

You kept me sleepless
Thinking and dreaming of you
Legs, eyes and that voice!

purgatory

Concrete monsters hovering over this realm
we are stuck in a low budget indie film
we do not understand what we speak if not for these subtitles
subtitles from a strange language we do not understand
we barely comprehend what is real and what is not
and if not for this perfect cinematography in this dream
we'd rather be stuck in purgatory and be there forever
or is this what purgatory is?

(im)pure

Pure hearts and impure thoughts
pure drugs and impure highs
pure friends and impure foe
pure foe and impure friends
pure mouths and impure ears
pure ears and impure mouths
pure smiles and impure tears
pure tears and impure smiles
pure highs and impure drugs
pure thoughts and impure hearts

haiku (24)

Please don't stop smiling
You rid the skies of dark clouds
Gorgeous - Sunshine - You

self portraits

As expected
I struggle to write these words
but somewhere
between these lines
she will be smiling
and it will easily be
the best smile you have ever seen

And of course
I drown and drown
between her eyes
stopping not
for a single gasp
of a dying breath

with her post impressionist
self portraits
all over my dreams

ප්‍රේමණීය කිවිඳියෙනි,

ප්‍රේමණීය කිවිඳියෙනි,
ඔබට මා අත්පිස්නාවක් ම
පමණෙකිද?

කුඩ නොමැති වැසි දිනෙක
දෙපා නෙක පටලැවී
සිතිවිලි මඩ වගුරක
ඇද වැටුනු රුදු මොහොතක

දෑත් මත පැටලැවුනු
ඛේදණීය වේදන මඩ කැබලිති
පිසලන්න පමණක්ම
ඔබ භාවිතා කරලන

නොකිලිටි,
මොහොතකින් කිලිටි වන,
අත් පිස්නාවක්ම පමණෙකිද
මම

ප්‍රේමණීය කිවිඳියෙනි ඔබ හට...
