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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Death

Sometimes, I find death to be the most interesting thing to think about.Would there be flowers dropping from sky,would my words fade away,would my paintings be restored,would there be angels coming from heavento carry me to their place,would there be people to cry after I’m gone, gone far away? I think about the death bed […]

Who am I if nobody is watching?

(i) if nobody is watching, i’ll walk barefoot feeling the roughness of the grass and coldness of the dews in our park’s lawn. (ii) if nobody is watching, i’ll try to stare at the sun with eyes wide open and gaze at the moon as if she’s my best friend. (iii) if nobody is watching, […]

AGONY BEHIND HER ROUGE.

She applies truckload of makeup,glittering saree,darker shade of blood red lipstick.She bleeds inside and outside. In the dark,she stands, in the tollgates and bus terminus inviting the unknown guests. Her genitals screams every night,screamed in pain, disgust and agony.The society which call her the epitome of impurity, a coquette and a slut,has no name to […]
