When a Woman Loves a Man

by David Lehman

When she says margarita she means daiquiri.
When she says quixotic she means mercurial.
And when she says, "I'll never speak to you again,"
she means, "Put your arms around me from behind
as I stand disconsolate at the window."

He's supposed to know that.

When a man loves a woman he is in New York and she is in Virginia
or he is in Boston, writing, and she is in New York, reading,
or she is wearing a sweater and sunglasses in Balboa Park and he
is raking leaves in Ithaca
or he is driving to East Hampton and she is standing disconsolate
at the window overlooking the bay
where a regatta of many-colored sails is going on
while he is stuck in traffic on the Long Island Expressway.

When a woman loves a man it is one ten in the morning
she is asleep he is watching the ball scores and eating pretzels
drinking lemonade
and two hours later he wakes up and staggers into bed
where she remains asleep and very warm.

When she says tomorrow she means in three or four weeks.
When she says, "We're talking about me now,"
he stops talking. Her best friend comes over and says,
"Did somebody die?"

When a woman loves a man, they have gone
to swim naked in the stream
on a glorious July day
with the sound of the waterfall like a chuckle
of water rushing over smooth rocks,
and there is nothing alien in the universe.

Ripe apples fall about them.
What else can they do but eat?

When he says, "Ours is a transitional era,"
"that's very original of you," she replies,
dry as the martini he is sipping.

They fight all the time
It's fun
What do I owe you?
Let's start with an apology
Ok, I'm sorry, you dickhead.
A sign is held up saying "Laughter."
It's a silent picture.
"I've been fucked without a kiss," she says,
"and you can quote me on that,"
which sounds great in an English accent.

One year they broke up seven times and threatened to do it
another nine times.

When a woman loves a man, she wants him to meet her at the
airport in a foreign country with a jeep.
When a man loves a woman he's there. He doesn't complain that
she's two hours late
and there's nothing in the refrigerator.

When a woman loves a man, she wants to stay awake.
She's like a child crying
at nightfall because she didn't want the day to end.

When a man loves a woman, he watches her sleep, thinking:
as midnight to the moon is sleep to the beloved.
A thousand fireflies wink at him.
The frogs sound like the string section
of the orchestra warming up.
The stars dangle down like earrings the shape of grapes.

Love is a many splendid thing. Love lifts us up where we belong. All you need is love!
~ from the movie Moulin Rouge ~

movies. book and being lethargic

well my exams are round the corner and i am not studying. nothing new. but the thing is i want to study and i cant. well one of the factors being that its cold in here and i have a tendency of becoming extremely lethargic in winters and that's y i cant stand this season. anyways.
i read a book by meg cabot called every boys got one. well the book was good. it really pasteurised what a women really wants and what she really is. i believe wen a guy asks a question to a girl 'what do u want?' he should read the book. he would understand. of late i saw a lot of movies. and notebook happens to be a favourite. it was good. maybe since i am partial towards romantic movies. but the screenplay was great and even the lead actor. whos name i have clearly forgot. then i saw twilight. i was a little disappointed since i expected a lot out of the movie. the seemed to wrap up the movie as fast as they could. but robert pattinson was yummy vampire. i'd fall for a vampire as sexy as him. then came American beauty. i dint like the movie. strangely it won academy award for best film......anywaise....golden globes happened, and to my delite (except the slumdog win) kate winslet won. i was rooting for her even when i have'nt seen the revolutionary road' which btw is next in my list. sharukh was amazing and for a change id say he looked really handsome.
chandini chawk has released and much to my happiness it has been getting bad reviews and i hope it bombs. not because of akshy( he is good)...but because of a certain miss i have ranbir kapoor.....oh how i wish she gives one flop after the other,,,,,,,,
and star screen awards happened.....i was fine with the awards given but best new comer went to farhan and rajeev.....clearly disappointing....hopefully filmfare would correct that. as it is award function are big time losers....
australian open is gearing up and i hope nadal clinches the title.....
so i guess this much of all is enough.....not to forget i saw rab ne......i got a head ache...aditya chopra dont make us start hating DDLJ.......
and yes jonas brothers might get a Grammy....hope so

Noah: I am nothing special; just a common man with common thoughts, and I've led a common life. There are no monuments dedicated to me and my name will soon be forgotten. But in one respect I have succeeded as gloriously as anyone who's ever lived: I've loved another with all my heart and soul; and to me, this has always been enough.

y i hate deepika padukode

i hate her...really...especially wenshe is standing wid the man of my dreams...agh...but my hatred towars is not consentrated on the fact that she is ranbir's gf. but how much she is hypd by the media. she has no talent and she gets the debut award. y? just because her film was a huge hit? soman is perhaps more beautiful and talentd that this arrogant. she plays wid a man's heart like a toy. look wt she did wid yuvraj is liable for abuses. and then madam goes on saying their was nothing....ya rite? any body buying that.....
she is not only arrogant she has no respect for other ppl. and if ranbir marries her it would be a big mistake

libra n 2009

Focus on inner growth

September 24 to October 23

Mantra of the year: Work on yourself from the inside out.

The year 2009 for the articulate and artistic Libran is one of soul searching and finding who they are. Librans are blessed with a happy, sunny spirit which they counter with their constant worrying about small matters. Librans are also gifted, gentle, persevering folks and believe in getting to their goals slow and steady. When challenged, they can show their controlling streak, however their way of viewing and making the best of every given situation is an art they use to the best of their ability. This year, all their creative thinking comes to their rescue as January sees the need for maximum strategy and execution techniques. Your resolution will be to be more calm and cool. You also need to focus on your inner growth rather than looking at the world outside.

Changes of all kinds are on the cards - be it relocation, a new project or a new home! The moves will also make you learn lessons from difficult situations and teach you how to challenge people in your professional life. It's vital for you to be honest with yourself for sustained success. Staying away from shortcuts and manipulations will help you progress and achieve your goals by August. Some of you may add more members to your team in order to expand your ideals and ideas. If connected with art and craft, you spend quality time on design and methods of advertising to give your best to the product.

Money owed to you returns in September, giving you the spending power to choose and enjoy. Purchasing and decorating a new home/office space in the winter months is indicated especially as the market conditions improve. For businessmen and lawyers, this year seminars and conferences prove to be fulfilling as you meet many a like-minded folk and exchange/work on good ideas that head towards common goals.

This year, you will connect with family and friends dispassionately. You give and share with your loved ones without expecting any in return. And that, by mid-year, will translate into balanced relationships at home. Travel over the weekends visiting friends is fun and frolic as your circle of love grows. Those single will enjoy happy dating and be at their flirtatious best.

This year, health will remain good. You will need to watch out for minor accidents and soothe your nervous nature with walks, fresh foods and a lot of quality sleep. You will need to take care of your back and get a good massage every once in a while to wipe your stress lines away.

Lucky colour: Wear silver for hope
Lucky stone: Cat's eye
Lucky day: Sunday
Famous Librans: Ranbir Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan


Ganesha Speaks

Lucky year for fiscal gains through your career, but hardships or hard work may also be there. You might have to keep putting in more and more effort at the office. You may also receive due appreciation, but you may still feel bit dissatisfied with the position and power that you possess. This is the right time to go for further studies in order to build your career. If you wish to move out of your current job, please think twice as nothing worthwhile would come across your way during the first three quarters of the year.

You will be at ease with your beloved or life partner in this year. New dimensions at the love front will lead the relationship to the next level of understanding and your love for your beloved or spouse may become more intense. This year you are likely to enjoy a passionate time together. Ganesha feels that this is the right year to think about marriage and go ahead positively, if you are single and looking.

Caption: Librans are also gifted, gentle, persevering folks and believe in getting to their goals slow and steady. But they -- Ranbir Kapoor too -- always make the best of a situation.

i know i said no more depressive poem but i couldn't help it...i had to.....

it seems yesterday
when you kissed me.
it seems yesterday
when you
told me that
you love me.
it seems yesterday
that you walked away
never to come back again.

cause i know
you love her.
you never loved me.
cause i know
you miss her.
you never missed me.
but every tears i dropped
were just for you...
it seems yesterday.

when i'd be on my deathbed
promise me you wont come
near me.
you are my locked
who always made my
heart bleed.
it seems yesterday

since two years
I've wasted my life
in the hope
that you would come back.
but when i know
you kiss her passionately
every day
i die every passing second
thinking of it.......

cause i know
you love her.
you never loved me.
cause i know
you miss her.
you never missed me.
but every tears i dropped
were just for you...
it seems yesterday.

it seems yesterday
when you kissed me.
it seems yesterday
when you
told me that
you love me.
it seems yesterday
that you walked away
never to come back again.

it seems yesterday....
