Guiltless Indulgence

26



Shivering to Bliss












Tender limbs quiver,
as bewhiskered slithers.



. . . giving in to the caver;
. . . retreating to the burrower:



quavering,
mewling,



while abandoning morals
and relinquishing principles–



helplessly conceding to an ache that dominates;
feebly letting love and hate collide–



as two ravenous give in
to a passion burning deep inside.

















Their Fairytale

576852_488010741231984_1161701904_n










What could be more tragic
than a love
that never
comes into life?




Is there anything
more melancholy
than a song
unsung?




What could be more piercing
than keeping blank negatives
of photographs
of a dream
never meant to realize?




Is there anything
more agonizing
than seeing two hands
dying to hold each other,
but their fingers
never made it through?







Coz though tears
may not be flowing visibly;
And though groans
may not be roaring loudly;




her heart is drenched,
as his soul remains aching
for their fairytale
they know is true.

When Heart Fails to Find Its Way Home

16


Like a Kite.4






Home says:





It’s okay.
You don’t have to explain
why you’re away,
where are you at,
who you’re with,
neither,
why you’re there
(and not here).


It’s not because,
I am not
interested
to hear your story;
Nor,
I am not concerned
at all;
Or I am not taking
your word for it.


It’s just that,
to know you’re well
and safe,
and happy–
and HAPPY–
I am but relieved.


For more than
this silly wish
to be with you–
I always pray–
always, always pray–
for your happiness–
even if it means,
us, being always apart;
or being away from each other for so long;
or you, being forever far away
from me.

The Very Essence of a Woman

29



The Very Essence of Woman3.july2015

 
 
 
The very essence
of a woman,
is to carry life
in her womb;
And to be
in the arms of . . .
 
 
. . . a man,
who
loves and cherishes her
as his priceless
treasure.

. . . a man,
who
is confident enough
to bring out
the best woman
in her.

. . . a man
who
is strong enough
to embrace her
not just as a lover,
but as his soul-mate
and lifetime partner.

. . . a man
who
is brave enough
to hold her hand
and look into her eyes,
and say,
“You complete me.”

Yours and Mine

11



You and I.3








One of
the toughest ironies
of life:
All that breathe
are timed,
including
You and I.





And that
everything within,
may either wilt
or turn to ash–
except,
yours and mine.





For though
our bodies
may turn to dusts,
there’d be another
two hearts
beating for each other;
two souls
so deeply entwined
just as
You and I.

The Very Essence of a Man

13

The Very Essence of a Man

 

 

 

The very essence of a man,
is to build
and keep a roof
over his
and his family’s heads-
with all his might;
and, with all his strength.

And to have
in his arms:

 
 

. . . a woman,
who
is respectful enough
to follow his lead
into a world
of their own.

. . . a woman,
who
is trusting enough
to hold his hand
until their bodies repose.

. . . a woman,
who
is faithful enough
to believe him,
when he says,
“You are my home.”

All About Mihran

49

 
All About Mihran

Original posting date: August 17, 2014.

Thank you, Mih–for your kindness, your patience, your friendship–thank you!

 
 

I have blogged for years now. But I never met a man as gentle and kind as Mihran Kalaydjian. Because aside from the fact that he had been so generous reblogging my posts, there was this one very warm conversation I had with him.

When I posted my condolences to our dear Ajaytao, I made Mihran cry that day. Although I was worried if I made him cry because I wrote bad; or I wrote something for Oscar’s (coz I do have the tendency for drama), but I was really touched with his honest sentiment. Coz Mihran never met Ajay, yet he shed a tear for him. He even asked me “Why am I crying, Aina?” I told him, “It’s because Mihran, you’re a gentleman with a very big heart and beautiful soul.” And so we were both crying in the end.

And I mean those words up to this very minute that I am writing this post. I could go on forever enlisting all the great things I appreciate in Mihran. So, I narrow it down to ten, and they’re below:

ALL ABOUT MIHRAN

1. “I’M A SUCCESS TODAY BECAUSE I HAD A FRIEND WHO BELIEVED IN ME AND I DIDN’T HAVE THE HEART TO LET HIM DOWN,” Mihran Kalaydjian.

2. He reblogs everyday, and in his most sincerest ways.

3. He visits, reads, likes and comments in our posts.

4. He has a picture of his brother (with his wife and beautiful kids) in his Awards and Accomplishments Page.

5. He writes free of ambiguity.

6. He uses simple words in straightforward ways.

7. He bridges bloggers–and

8. He is a live conduit of goodwill and friendship.

9. He has a heart as big as the world.

10. He has a soul as enormous as the universe.

I guess, what I am trying to say:
Mih, thank you for coming our ways! Thank you for the kindness you do everyday! Thank you for being a true gentleman in every way! You earned not only our respect, but our hearts as well. May all the blessing of Heaven and Earth be upon you, my friend! A million thanks to you kind thing!

P.S. Please own the message of the song below. It’s for you. I thank you with all my heart and soul!
