The need

We need someone to just sit with and talk about stars and skies/ constellations and celestial bodies/ suffocating hearts and minds/ withered leaves and dried bougainville/ hurricanes and drought/ tea leaves and decoction/ darkness and serial light/ smell of henna and last summer/ taxis and busy roads/ art galleries and museums/ hot chocolate and peanut […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Colours

Sometimes, they are the dim spark in the end of the tunnel giving hope to get through. It is you, who can change your thoughts, alter the light’s composition […]

Stronger than any

Wondering tears,happier for it at the end.A better friend to comfort,the troubles and temptations of life,may be many.Overcome and outlive them.Feel the strength and tenderness. Love never change, can never be taken away from you.Believe this heartily, with all your little hope,hold the silence- the sincerest prayer without words,learned the bitterness of remorse,the sweetness of […]

Unplanned and unedited #3

You don’t see what I see. One eye of mine doesn’t see the same as what the other does. One ear of mine don’t hear the same as what the other does, there is a difference at least in the decibels they perceive (I learnt this fact very recently and unlearnt many).Not our fingerprint matches […]

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 […]
