Our Poetry

Pull me closer to your diamond skin
a place that eats all my molested scars,
in the walls of books and poetry
you shall be my muse, the other half.
of my upcoming poetic line, upcoming splinters of ice,
we make love castles,amidst the dirt hanging like spider web,
Precise knots of commitment are the strongest.
Skin:a reverie of splashing memory,
Something that your lips eat daily.
Turn by turn, inch by inch
we mark each other’s soul
creating geometry, defeating geography.
My collarbone is star dust today,
Ebullient scents from your whisky eyes
expand my artless poetry,
like the writings scribbled onto my library walls,
pink, orange, brown.
Infinite, Indelible.

– my valiant soul

P.s_- To my love, my constant.

  2. When people talk about lovers as muses, I remember a party where a poetry friend met one of my prose writing friends, both women, and the poetry friend asked my prose friend what the women in my novels were like, thinking she was going to get dirt on me. She was shocked when my prose friend said, “They kick ass!” And then I realized that my positive and negative emotions were being channeled into two different mediums of expression.

  3. Wow! What a passionate analogy for shared love. This is brilliant, Devika. I could feel each of you caressing each other like one would caress the spine or familiar pages of a favorite book. I love, too, your use of the library motif. You are so creative and unique: that’s why your work stands out!
