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 […]

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.

Unplanned and unedited #2

I sip my coffee as I type this, coffee time is the best part of my day. A whirlpool of thoughts swirl around and the subconsciously suppressed emotions show up. If you ask how my coffee looks, it would obviously be less dark than my sad poems. I miss writing sad poems, not that I […]
