Poem - #8 | Just Love Me

If you're going to love me this softly
Nurture and care for me,
Hold my hand like yesterday
With all your fingers interlocked as if a tie,
I'll let you take me to the places
You make me dream about.
If your lips feel the same way every time,
Soft and promising
A little sweet-a little scared
As if we'll run out of time
And we'll end up late,
With haste l'll let you kiss me tomorrow
One more time: Before I leave for the night
And keep missing you until the morning
But I cant tell you that.
What you must know ias that
You can love me,
Don't ask if you can
For the things you want
Just stretch your hand to hold mine
You don't need to look away
When you can't find the right words to say
Just stay there in the moment with me;
We don't have to talk: smile at me
Or just watch me gaze back at you
Without hesitation- 'Cause  
Speeches don't define love,
We lovers do.
And if you get lucky.
Before we depart, after our lips have:
I might tell you that Ilove you
                                             -  Pushpanjali.

Alireza Taheri Araghi | The Immortals of Tehran

BLURB: As a child living in his family's apple orchard, Ahmad Torkash-Vand treasures his great-great-great-great grandfather's every mesmerizing word. On the day of his father's death, Ahmad listens closely as the seemingly immortal elder tells him the tale of a centuries-old family curse . . . and the boy's own fated role in the story. Ahmad grows up to suspect that something must be interfering with his family, as he struggles to hold them together through decades of famine, loss, and political turmoil in Iran. As the world transforms around him, each turn of Ahmad's life is a surprise: from street brawler, to father of two unusually gifted daughters; from radical poet, to politician with a target on his back. These lives, and the many unforgettable stories alongside his, converge and catch fire at the center of the Revolution. Exploring the brutality of history while conjuring the astonishment of magical realism, The Immortals of Tehran is a novel about the incan

Poem - #13 | Utopian Dystopia | On Poverty and Racism

On Poverty and Racism They say it ain't good When you show your cunning self But when you have to beg for food Being honest is of little help. Sit in the heat, sit in the rain; Is it the best way, you use your brain. But you know what? The rich don't care, About the miseries the poor share. Oh! Please don't spit there Thats where I sleep dear: And don't you piss there My food is in there! Yeah you heard it right But you still will fight, With the people and the government, Everytime they have us money, lent. For the rich get richer,  And the poor - poorer: Very few things in this world Are more truer, Than this clich├ęd phrase. You see, we live in such a country When dogs are prayed but men slayed, On the basis of their so-called caste How long do you think can such a rule last? And the black men, kicked out and murdered Just because God had them coloured. And yet they say we live in an uto
