Fluttering lashes
Dreamy eyes
Cherry lips
Flashing smile

Slender waist
Tender hands
Butter skin
Long legs

Dazzling skirt
Jingling anklets
Heavenly grace
Pretty woman

(Only left with..)

Lifeless living
Hurting shame
Unspoken word
Pricking pain

Cloudy eyes
Pearly drops
Deadly void
Cruel fate

Freezing gaze
Healing touch
Dream man
Beyond reach

Caressed dreams
Unfulfilled desires
Everyone's woman
Yet noone's..

sure sounds like my dream woman for the most part :-) anyways, found your blog from saranyan's.


Vani Viswanathan said...

ummm, sorry akku.....
i can't understand the poem! just dropped a comment to say i read it! ahem!!!!

Anupama Viswanathan said...

Hi desi@heart,
thanks for dropping by. I am glad the post could capture your dream woman for the most part..

My dear sister, First, I don't know whether i can call it a poem..I was just experimenting descriptions in two words, an adjective and a noun for most part...I wanted to construct the image of a particular woman..Let's see if someone gets it..

First paart nanna irukku ;), baaki onnum puriyala

Vani Viswanathan said...

no...i think it's someone i donno much about! :)

reNUka said...

i suppose u r talkin abt the infamous and the lesser privileged women...

Narayanan Venkitu said...

And why ?

Good Anupama.!!

Anupama Viswanathan said...

I wonder who has posted and deleted so many comments!!

Anyways, Renuka got it right!!! It's about a prostitute..

Narayanan, why..because I just felt like writing about is a very sad life that they lead..

Vijay and Vani, now you know..don't you?

Desi@Heart said...

oh geez... now i get the point.. i read only the first half.. very good poem.


Kumari said...

Loved the verse.
But then it wasn't a prostitute who came to my mind. I don't know but somehow felt the verse would suit just about any woman - someone 'liked' by all but 'loved' by none; someone who had to give up her man to live with his shadow.

I guess that's where the fun is...when u interpret it anyway you want.
Once again, lovely stuff Anu :)

Oviya peN azugiRAL viRkap paduvathai eNNi...your poem reminded me of these lines!! And nice experimentation (the two word style)!!

Anupama Viswanathan said...

glad that it makes sense now! :)

Kumari, Hey good to see you again..and you said that really right..the beauty of it lies in the freedom to interpret it the way you choose!:)

Agnibarathi, Thanks! :)

DD said...

lovely one
once again!
Minimal words
highly touchy!!
Just loved the very description "Butter Skin" and "Cloudy eyes..." part is too good :-)

Anupama Viswanathan said...

hey DD!! Thank you! :) and even you seem to have adopted the two word style!! :))

Eroteme said...

Enjoyed reading this. Yup, a lady left wanting from life does come to mind. Could have been a servant maid too... This is a really neat style of writing that you have come upon. Did you see this somewhere else, or is it originally yours? Very creative... keep it going, lady! :-)

Nyscha said...

hey there!
was aimlessly going thru blogs.found this post and just one word-WOW :-)

RT said...

hi, new to ur blog...wonderful lyrics!

Anupama Viswanathan said...

Eroteme, you ask questions that make me wonder, don't you? Well, I just thought about it..and you know what came to my mind..??
"Chubby cheeks,
dimple chin
rosy lips
teeth within.." :))

Nyscha and rt, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to drop a comment! :)

Karthik Subramani said...

Wow , this is the most powerful poem I ve read with so few words in them . I just loved it ... maybe its the engineer's idea of optimising the creation to mean nothing more than its purpose ...?

Once again , just amazing .

Anupama Viswanathan said...

Hi karthik, thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment..I happened to see this comment when I scrolled down my blog..Thank you, you helped me begin my day with a smile! :)

"maybe its the engineer's idea of optimising the creation to mean nothing more than its purpose ..." - Honestly, I didn't think this far! ;)
