The heart wants what it wants

Appeal and Magical
Womans Lure
Curriculum at School
Values at home
Seldom include

Happens to all
Age no bar
Objectified at first
Finds its place
On a to do list

Neighbor Is a start
Teacher is not far
Set high the bar
Silver Screen
Provides it all

Neighbor Teacher Actor
All from afar
Emotions mixed
Guilt adds a twist

Category in a Sport
Age defined emotion
Heart demands action
With its brain a friction

Mystery and Mystique
Adds to the Allure
To know if true
One has to mature

Lucky if beautiful
Unlucky if not
Qualified by looks
Quantified by wealth
Strategy in play as well

Eyes of the beholder
Never more truer
Beauty skin deep
Philosophy to seek

Art to master
Good with women


Feelings not at play
Skill paves way

Question the source
All in natural course
Clarity absent
Emotion present

Fantasy or Reality
Sexual or nobility
Purity a necessity
Turmoil insanity

Quotes and Idioms
Dime a Dozen
Marriages made in heaven
Peace in fusion
Entire human race
Gods grace

Emotion Divine
Feelings Sublime
Process Spiritual
Lucky the individual

Logic and reasoning
Passion and desire
Absence of Harmony
Melancholy in Sanctity

Foundation laid
At tender age
Seeking Intimacy
Fulfilled or frustrated
Cheerful or Crestfallen
The Heart wants
What it Wants

I am currently a Table Tennis Coach. Being a former competitive player I have been pursuing my passion for the past 8 years now. I coach at Academies, Schools, Apartments and also have my own Coaching Center. I have been into Stock Broking in the Trading Desk, Used Car Sales as a salesman and even worked in a Film and Television Company as an Assistant Director mainly involved in Reality Shows Of late I have been dabbling in Writing. This is the first collection of my works. I am an avid film watcher and a movie and music buff. I would like to call them songs. As a huge fan of the Rock Scene of the 1970’s I have written these with the intention that they get converted into tunes and fill the air of music already existing. I have named this SONGS FROM THE HEART more…
