The beginning and end of forever


Forever begins
with heart-stop,
a virginal rebirthing
and umbilical dissolve
that separates and erases
all illusion
of heart, touch and things mis
named.
Forever never ends, though;
it just gets lost in the
Alzheimeic plains
of reason and other encounters
The first love is also the last, I think.

  2. Hey Malinda, you can fool some people sometimes, but not everybody all the time.

    Your so-called "elegant" poetry CANNOT cover the fact that you were a Mahinda Rajapaksa stooge. We all saw saw how you went to the supermarket (කඩේ) for the dictator මැදමුලන ගන් කබරයා before Jan 8.

    Now you are slowly trying slither your way into යහපාලනය. We will not be fooled Malinda.

    What is your true feelings towards යහපාලනය?? Is it better or worse than your dictator Maraa's පවුල් පාලනය?

    You are a two-faced snake in the grass.

  4. I fully agree with the definition 'two-faced snake in the grass'. It should be qualified as 'multi-faced snake'. Under your so called poetic finesse lies a hypocrite like none! You are full of venom nothing else- politically and otherwise--
