By Solahudeen Ridwanullah O.

Spiders are here again tangling webs
One entangles into the other like inter-net 
May our spirits connect
Like the twin arms of a walking clock
One ticks as the other tacks.

Mother said honey is good for kids, 
I threw cakes away and shuddered towards her breast.

To see is eyes; to love is heart
Do you see what you love 
Or you love what you see? 
To tango is a game of the two willing birds
Wrestling to know who best can care
For both our eyes and the hearts
Friendship is a water for two souls, 
And if you offer me a cup from your heart
I swear, I'll take you down to drain my father's pond.
