The Eye of the Tiger

1 Feb

I watch you from

the corner of an eager eye,

hopeful, loveful, parched for droplets of

approval, attention,

a wayside crumb.

You glisten,

then wink,

and evilly twinkle;

then shut shop to slumber

or only pretend.

All the while I pray for

your light to shine,

your orchestra to blare,

your rendezvous to fructify,

so you, blasted computer,

can whip up the damn internet

like it’s your bloody job

to do.

    🙂 Your posts leave me speechless most of the time so I don’t know what I write in the comments except that I really like them.

    sukanya: Three short plays, performed back to back. The Last Annal of Alamgir, Karna and Aftermath. The information was on my Flavor of the Month/Minute/Moment page until yesterday. You can still read about them here: http://www.mumbaitheatreguide.com/dramas/english/20-preview-three-short-plays-.asp

    wordjunkie: I pretend to ignore it and not let it know about the trauma it’s causing me. Certainly won’t give it that pleasure. Hmpf!

    D: Said twice, it’s more believable. 😉

    two people have already said what I wanted to say – wow.
    So will just say you always manage to give me a whole new, better sounding, perspective about ranting.
    Missed reading you. 🙂
