Less Words

Breathing your love,
I want to master the art.
With less words,
How to occupy your heart?
I thought for many nights,
Under cloudless sky conniving with the stars.
Intoxicated with your love,
Even the striking clock sounds like the guitar.
Neither, I can play with words,
Nor, I can weave a fable.
I get goosebumps on my body,
When we sit across the table.
You're a man of few words,
But, I'm little loquacious.
Fearing my utterance of useless words,
Project me as flirtatious.
So, the less words I want,
Can you help me, please?
Or else I'll say love you,
Every time I breathe.


  1. Yet another wonderful piece Saru... "Even the striking of clock sounds like guitar." - loved this line very much!! I assume you've lived and enjoyed each line you describe here... An unconventional approach to a common situation :) And kudos on crossing 10,000 page views :D

  2. You rock in love poetry...heart piercing lines..so soft a theme and so softly said...I get the different intricacies of love in your poetry:-)

  3. you know i keep running out of words to describe your work...your Romantic Quotient is increasing by the day...and so is the number of vivid images that you sneak in....in every single line...i can drink this one :)))

  11. You do breathe love Saru, maybe your heart also beats love in every blood cell..
    Else no one can come with such a piece!

    You're a man of few words,
    But, I'm little loquacious.
    Fearing my utterance of useless words,
    Project me as flirtatious.

    These lines really made me think, I said to myself "Isn't this the same case with you? This lady has expressed that feeling so beautifully!"

  12. superb!! loved it :) u'r awesome!! love ya ;)

  13. @spicy sweet : You wont believe it, but i was going to write the exact same thing.I could totally relate to those lines.

  29. To say that you cannot do wordplay in your own post, it is highly underrating yourself, because I see the words dance to their own tune while they sit here on this blog page.

    Blasphemous Aesthete

  30. words are your slave saru :) and well, the ending couldn't get any better than that...

  31. Sometimes we do not know how a word can change our lives. Love is such a word. May you get the love of your heart and may you be loved.

  32. OMG..From where do you get these beautiful words...

  33. Wah Wha saaru jee kya baat hai :) :) Loved every lines of this poem. The way it started was awesome.

    "Breathing your love,
    I want to master the art.
    With less words,
    How to occupy your heart?"

    Sooooper :)

    And this is my fav. line :)

    "Even the striking of clock sounds like guitar."

    Just loved it :)

  34. Loved each line and loved the finish. Sharing it on FB.:)

  35. Wow...what a flow.....enjoyed reading this :)

  36. I read few poetry blogs. Not that I have a dislike for verses but most of them are either mechanical or cloying. Your diction is simple yet deeply touching. Good Work, Saru!

  37. You say it best..when you say nothing at all :)

  38. As usual, you have stolen all of us heart by very few words of your poem.
    "Even the striking of clock sounds like guitar", liked it alot. No more words. :-) ...

  39. i tried my hand in poetry once, i cudnt get past the 2nd word even :) LOL.. ah love. 1 up Saru!

  40. saru...there u go again, popping the charts this time :) Good show

  41. the last two lines say it all for me :)
