so the next time

so the next time when love knocks your door,say that you lost its keys long, long agoand you are searching, still searching,whisper word by word in love’s ears, because she’s partially deaf. ask her to wait with little patienceandinitiate a conversation,ask why she comes, gives and goes,ask why her life expectancy is short, so short,ask […]

November

This november was draped withdampened, drenched roads,cold winds, incessant showers,brewed perfect coffee, frozen tiles,quite absence and grey evenings. This november had short sunshines,the lack of warmth by sun outshone my yearn for someone’s presence,i sought comfort in diyas, in scented candles, in moon, the crescent stringed my soul swinging in eternal solitude. This november made […]

A note of hope

shall the seeds you sowed months back in the pot rise up rooting strong enough to the mud, shall the tiniest buds in the garden bloom to the brightest colours, shall the sunshine peep through the dark clouds after a week of heavy shower, shall you find time to admire your reflection in the puddles […]

Lacuna ft. Phir Bhi Tumko Chaahunga

i’m a blank and empty spacethat’s void of everything,my heart doesn’t beat lub-dub.close your eyes,place hands on my chestyou’ll hear the symphonies of love,lost love, old love,rhyming with million metaphors.is there an antidote to heal my heart? “meri jaan main har khaamoshi mein*tere pyaar ke naghme gaaunga…” i feel that a part in me is […]

Unplanned and unedited #4

Thinking about the unfinished books, incomplete poems, half-done painting, yet to be cleaned cupboard, about the mess in my mind, about the fragmented thoughts passes each day at home. The random conversation with people who are miles, states away, the discussions of different perspective on the most common thing, about the uncertainties, about the unfair […]

An ode

An ode, to the walls seeing the unseen faces/ to the floor carrying spilled coffee/ to the gates etched with the memories of goodbyes and hellos/ to the mugs held in between fingers with little care/ to the plates disrespected most of the times/ to the unclear mirror of dust/ to the micellar water removing […]

October × Love

Love isn’t mere kisses on the region behind ears, or on neck or on lips, It is a tender forehead kiss sounding like a response to a rescue call, Feels like the ray of sunshine to a grieving sunflower, giving life and warmth. Shiuli, the white flowers,blooms in the night to only perish in the […]

Life, a road

When i lean on the couch, holding coffee in hand,I think about the park chairs, my best companions.about the forgotten smells of people,about the forgotten smiles, about the forgotten warmth. I don’t want them to fade away like the tint of flowers in between the pages,I want them to stay fresh, I want to feel […]

Somedays, sometimes.

someday words flow like a river, somedays i relearn alphabets to string verses somedays i close my eyes and re-visit memories, and write involuntarily. somedays i feel like living, somedays i feel like thriving, somedays i don’t feel the existence, i look at the mirror and wonder about, how the acne marks heal slowly, like […]

Destiny

We met, we kissed, we hugged, we shared love, I called you home, your arms were my safest haven that I like to hold on to, your chest were the soil I would deeply sow myself in, our home is barren without love, without your forehead kisses, this is not a home anymore, a room […]
