Tantalizing Hug

I'm a prisoner of my own longings, he is unconcerned,
He compliments 'her' beauty; inside, I'm burnt.
When ashes of envy run deep in my blood,
He whispers usual melodies with a tantalizing hug.


  1. What was that!! Wow..
    I must say...such a negative feeling put forth such beautifully... U are getting better with each day Saru..
    My Doggy Barks in joy again : WOW WOW WOW WOW!!! :)

  20. I actually like hugs more then kisses.

  21. Ouch.

    But that was a nice poem.
    Quaint and spot-on. <3

  22. No doubt!- surrounds a strong imagination,
    'She' burnt(doubt!); 'He's in agreement!.:)

    Surely! emphasizes Ur quality rhythm & words.

  23. Completely agree with you Saru... :)

  24. Your poetry explore the myriad faces of love and its complexities! The lines run deep in my heart...lovely:-)

  25. Dear Saru..

    Jealousy ...I never read anything beautiful than your poem on this emotion.



  26. Saru, what was that! I mean, this is a kinda negative feeling, a little complex, but expressed so beautifully. And in such a few words. :) Wonderful, wonderful, and wonderful!

  27. i totally agree with Shaifali.. never read something so beautiful on a negative emotion...very beautiful Saru :) :)

  28. Ohh.. So, is it a love triangle?? Or, am I missing out on something??

  29. When my heart likes it, my brain can't stop being generous!! And of course this would be the case only for the most deserving ones :)

  30. Men are always known for their flattering chants and only a smart woman won't fall prey to it

  31. Love - so complicated! A deep poem. Well written!

  32. :) only you can do this in just four lines, and so beautifully :)
