My incomplete poems are numerous questions to god asking him the reasons for the prejudice at birth and unfair deaths,
My incomplete poems are answers to the people offering unsolicited advice like – take a plastic surgery to get rid of your scar,
My incomplete poems are a moment of silence to souls seeking salvation without appreciating blooms of flowers, warmth of moonlight, motion of clouds, veins in withered leaves and the joy in ferris wheels,
My incomplete poems are an ode to acne prone skin, an ode to stretch marks, an ode to defects, an ode to body hair, an ode to everything that’s less appreciated ,
My incomplete poems are the smallest reasons i look for – everywhere, at home, in someone’s eyes, in memories to make my existence more meaningful,
My incomplete poems are attempts to rewrite the laws, rewrite fate of people, rewrite the widespread notions of femininity and beauty,
My incomplete poems are the greatest efforts to paraphrase pain, love grief, romanticise void and unlove humans,
My incomplete poems are the never-ending ted talks with mirror and speeches preaching the art of living, just preaches,
My incomplete poems are meaningless phrases, complex words trying its best to capture the raw feeling my heart senses,
My incomplete poems are a set of questionnaire measuring the sensitivity of man who are thought to be rigid having high young’s modulus, my questionnaire are broken attempts to prove that men change shape, men cry with emotional overload,
My incomplete poems are unfulfilled dreams, stories of struggles and unacknowledged success,
My incomplete poems are the unsent letters to Santa Claus and tooth fairies, to people who broke my tender heart right from the age of 5 by teaching me what disappointment is,
My incomplete poems are songs to unsung female characters in life, in mine and in yours,
My incomplete poems are the silent NO’s, no other go ‘YES’s’,
My incomplete poems are the unheard voices against misogyny, agony, anguish, woes in every households,

My incomplete poems are nothing but poems written to myself and they are meant to be incomplete.

Thank you so much for reading!

  3. I really enjoyed the depth in this Hema. I like the sound of these uncompleted poem… They are the perfect space for reflection and growth. This really is an outstanding piece you have published 👏


  4. I completely incompletely get the real of this…. especially the acne bit as my first achievement was to be on the top 5 of the most spotty people in the UK when in my teens… but also because you flip negation of form on its head which I think is pretty neat… And, and I say this again… you got something going on with your writing Hema, although I am getting a bit lazy with mine as you write so well and it hits the spot… pun intended ha ha ha… Brilliant, Hema… And, and, and… thanks for making the effort too…
