The lullaby that put her to sleep


Seated over the majestic rocks scattered by the shore,

she  strains her ears to the musical voice of the  nonexistent significant other

fantasizing him singing about their love in ways galore,

 making promises that would set her dreaming forever and more.

Tired of chasing glee and troth

she lays her head on the uneven lap of the rock, thinking of her paramour.

Listening to the quixotic lullaby rocking her heart back and forth

she falls into a permanent slumber, putting into sleep her paroxysm and fervor.


About SK Rajeshwari

I am an incurable bibliophile, dreamer, writer, poet and connoisseur of all things beautiful. This blog 'My Cosmos' is my first love and nothing pleases me more than constructive feedback for my write-ups. My second love is books. I am an insatiable and roly-poly bookworm. Books teach me how to explore the world inside me and the ones that are outcomes of someone else's unadulterated imagination. What beautifies my existence is the endless walk I enjoy putting on those shoes of imagination. Step into my world, feel my poems and allow your wandering soul to be hypnotized by the fragrance of the captivating manifestations of my dreams, experiences and imagination. Allow this feeling to creep into your being and let your nerves speak the language of beauty and artistry. Bienvenido :)
