Shooting from the heart- Ten Intricate One Liners

My first attempt at writing one liners.  I always liked poems for the brevity of expressions.  One liners challenge the poet to say what’s in his mind in as few words as possible but still be meaningful to the readers.  Hope my readers will find these meaningful.

 

Poison

Trapped by your charm, drank poison.

******

Silver Bullet

Your heart hides my silver bullet.

******

Pain

Pain of separation ravaged my heart.

******

Prisoner

Imprisoned by your charm, I’m blind.

******

Hurry

Hurry, the bell tolls, why dither?

******

Temptress

Temptress, your arrow pierced my heart.

******

Tears

May deserts bloom from your tears.

******

Nectar

Your kiss turned hemlock to nectar.

******

Mellifluous

Your mellifluous voice soothed my journey.

******

My Life

Hidden in your smile, my life.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

    1. Thanks Oneta.
      When I started writing, I remembered the story of poet Kalidasa, regarded as the greatest poet and dramatist of Sanskrit (4th – 5th century AD). The story goes that when he attained enlightenment, he came to his wife, who was a princess, at midnight to share the good news and knocked at her door. When his wife asked what the hurry about, “Asti kachchit vaag vishesha” (have some special news to share). In response, he wrote an epic poem / book starting with each of the letters of her question and these are gems of Sanskrit literature.

  1. “Shooting from the heart_10 intricate oneliners”:

    I had commented on the Assamese ones. The English translations are equally sharp, heart-piercing, just like your ‘silver bullets”, these have not lost anything of the originals, may be because these are your own genuine feelings, not someone else’s that you are translating.
    I am partial towards short poems, as I have always believed in the saying, ‘Brevity is the soul of wit’. And these days, who has the time to read very long poems?
    Although, these are 10 separate oneliners, they are like a string of lustrous pearls, the silk thread that bind them together, being the theme of Love.
    Congratulations!

    1. Wow, you think so😀. My wife thinks I am the most boring person in the world whose sole purpose of existence is to torment her😀. Not that she does not appreciate the food I cook as can be evidenced from the clean plates.
