Coconut Ice-cream in a Waffle-cone

Please give up, don’t even try,

You know you’re pathetic at telling me a lie,

Wipe off that tear of regret,

Sit with me and enjoy the sunset,

I’m happy treasuring what we had,

If we’d part with a smile, it’d make me glad,

I can’t cry over what I haven’t known,

All I know now is happiness in coconut ice-cream and a waffle cone…

Ok, now since you are pretty much aware of all the cribbing that goes on around here about me being single and all, here is another one!
Right...since I am always pestering people with this whole "Why am I still single crib..." I keep getting all sorts of new and improved answers. This latest one though takes the cake...
She said-
"You're the kinda guy girls know their parents would like...unfortunately for you, girls aren't looking to take a guy home yet!"

Mind blowing I say!

In a cup of Coffee

Funny how in this cup of coffee

I see a metaphor for my life,

I know there’s a bitterness in it for me

But it’s the bitterness that I like…


There’s cream floating at the top

It hides the blackness beneath,

I know I will gladly lap ‘em both up

Then wish I’d have stirred it all just a bit…


I take the first sip

And think a little sugar would do no harm,

She looks at the twitch of my lips

And adds more sugar, sweet as her charm…


I look at the cup and then her eyes

My foolish pride comes in the way,

In that instant to her I lie

“I don’t like it sweet,” I say…


She smiles knowingly without saying a word

I shy away from her stare,

It’s as if all that she’s said I have heard

Strange is this bond we share…


The cup gets empty as the coffee gets colder

This evenings drawing to a close for me,

“I love you!” is all that I don’t tell her

But then neither to me does she…

All she needs is a little to drink
And I dont even need a reason,
Of where we're heading I dont even think
Nor does she in any season,
We head out in the dark of the night
Along roads we've never been before,
We land up at a beautiful sight
Somewhere along the sea-shore,
Never has she failed to cheer me up
And remind me of how much this life I like,
A million such memories to sweeten my tea cup
Of my first love...my dearest friend...my beautiful beautiful bike!!!

Who am I?

Emotions aplenty churning inside,

My tears hidden behind a fa├žade of pride,

Sometimes that I wanna be strong but I cant,

My tired breathless heart stops to pant,

From life I want so much more,

On the wings of ambition that I wanna soar,

But yet my goals lie undefined,

Battles that wage on endlessly in my mind,

Not yet a man but I am no more a boy,

Define me please…I’m still searching – Who am I?

I'm never speaking up again...

How do I manage to get it all wrong?

When I have thought over this conversation for so long?

I open my mouth and the words sound so unfamiliar,

These aren’t the words I had rehearsed for you to hear,

You’d think that maybe I’d be better off just saying a polite “Hi!”

But you know I’d goof it up too, no matter how hard I try,

I have made a fool of myself and how,

I’m gonna shut up and not say a word…starting now!

There isn’t a reason to me, lost alone I’m fumbling,

Nothing with clarity can I see, at every step I’m stumbling,

Everything I have ever needed, you have made sure I have gotten,

Even if I haven’t succeeded, you have never let my spirit dishearten,

But I sit here miles away, and the times spent with you seem long gone,

And mom I’m really missing you a lot today, Dad I wish to you I could come home…
