Deeply in Love with Dracula’s Daughter

Strolling in the graveyard
with roses in my hand.
The fog rolling in,
for her tryst with sin.
A banshee screams,
in my nightmarish dream.

Deeply in love with Dracula’s daughter.

Creatures of darkness
what music they make.
Life in the night, most don't know,
lives in the shadows, which light throws.
Terror runs deep where murkiness falls.
Thirst never quenched from hunger’s call.

Deeply in love with Dracula's Daughter.

Never could fathom
in my wildest dreams.
Life has its own course, it seems
It follows only its own whims
I cannot but help whom I love;
I cannot help that she thrives on blood.

Deeply in love with Dracula’s Daughter

Unmindful of what others think,
I trudge along towards my queen.
Our nuptials to be held on Halloween.
I look forward to good times ahead
But vampires in love with her, are sad
as I will be calling Dracula, dad.

Deeply in love with Dracula's Daughter.

The very thought of her
love-bites after twilight;
her scratching nails all through the night
her bloody kisses just before dawn,
her writhing body against my own,
just stop short of driving me wild.

Deeply in love with Dracula's Daughter.

Autumn nights............elemental feelings

cool autumn nights
desiring of heating up
another body


bathed in cool heat
breathless, hair a mess
autumn feels like sex

New Beginning

All this while
I have been
wasting my life
at a world
full of wonders
and ignominy.

All my life
I have been busy
someone else
to blame
for my

Putting my
life on
too long
I need to
let go
I need
to learn

To reach out
take hold
venture out in
the deep unknown
reaching inside
my mind
seeking answers
deep within

Maybe when
I find
The answers
I seek
I will stop
and have
a new beginning

Judgement Day...........? Dealing with incest.True Story...

He lay there on the ground
cold and dead;
though not from bullets,
she had wished for his head.

Neither prison for him,
nor a gruelling fate.
Or judgement day
at the pearly gate.

Dead drunk, he had stumbled,
hitting the ground.
His head smashed open,
with a loud sound

Did God finally relent
having a say?
Telling, sinners like him
had to pay.

She had been scared
even in daylight;
knowing he would molest her,
come day or night.

She was a survivor,
would sleep well tonight;
now that he was dead,
she won’t have to fight!


I am deeply anguished after what one of our students said about her father a couple of days back. He tried to molest her. She had been out of his clutches till date but for how long? She wished him dead! Talking to her mother did not help. She does not want to leave the scum! And neither does she want her daughter/s to come out in the open and protest!She has 5 children and he is the only breadwinner.After much persuasion, she sent her 2 daughters to live with one of her sisters. Will this help? Neither she nor her daughters want to go to the police.......In the circumstances, I do not have a clue what to do? This is ground reality that is India!

You and I




Read on what David has to say at


empty inside
or is it outside?

Is this what?

within my mind
within my heart
is this what
keeping us both


calm, soothed mind
deep, heavy thoughts


writhing bodies
tangled sheets
storm unleashed

Elemental Chemistry.......Verse form


Plutonium...nuclear fission
Or is it nuclear fusion?
Does it matter to common man?
If the whole world is gone!

David's reply to my verse at uranium- poesy


What made the serial killer tick?
Serving tea with Arsenic.
This is a slow poison
Killing guaranteed; with precision!


Helixes, doubled all over;
Benzene, Naphthalene
Simpler ones, Methane
Ethane, Propane. All
Compounds of carbon.

Precious Metals

Silver can wait a while
Gold brings about a smile,
Diamonds are forever;
Platinum …now or never!!

Life and Death

hurtling forward
for better or worse!!

release of a soul
new beginning

Another take:

Life and Death

At her birth, smiles around
And she was crying her heart out
Smiling now, heavenward she is set
Those around her have their eyes wet

Had to write this too...:)

I just had to write it down here....:)

Resting Place...Morbid Thoughts

Feelings and thoughts as sinister as the night.
Dark clouds masking the moonlight.

I am here to have my despair released.
The only place where I will find some peace

The graveyard is calm; justifying the end.
For those left here; by strangers, family, or a friend.

The lifeless corpses in the damp graves.
With a few epitaph “in death, he is saved.”

The only remnants of those long since dead;
are the carved stones, placed at their head.

The tombstones are covered with moss and grime;
slowly festering away with passing of time.

Here I stare, standing head bowed down.
With deep longing, into the restful underground

what dark secrets
hidden there,
scarring her?

face she must
the world though;
her inner fears,
her only foe!

smiling forever
under this mask;
reluctant to reveal
the pain within;
she holds on
head held high.


sitting here with a facade
willing for this anguish to end
which I hide from all
wishing it to go away
let me be free
let me be happy.

Amidst the shadowy night,
lighthouse stands high,
radiating its golden gleam

Warning ships of unheard
perils lurking in the sea
with its circling lights

Saturday, October 08, 2005


Shaking ground
Shattered walls
Shards of glass
Dancing death
God's Wrath
on Mother Earth


I endure
Amidst a crowd
