beautiful adjectives.......nee mehendi burns

adjectives are like sharp splinters ...
used whenever one like....
pierces the bleeding heart....
vulnerable soul.....from all sides,
knowingly unknowingly.....
reasonless....
hatred...
for a sinner...
though sins unknown...


coward...
pessimist.....
hysterical..........
mistrusting......
or no trust at all.......
pennyless....drunkard....crazy...fool
all are beautiful adjectives ...
said so lovingly....
whispered in the ear...

before a wondering, stupid gaze.....
the mehendi burns.
