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 […]

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 […]

I think about the death bed […]

Wish and wishes

Gazing at the sky which is sombre and starless, we wish for the moon to appear from the shadow of clouds, we wish for a rainbow to brighten the sky after every rain, we wish to forget the past and live the present, but somewhere our mind is caught up with regrets and ruminations.We wish […]

Wish

If you decide to manage expectations, what do I exist for? “Make a wish”, ordered the heart to the brain. Many times our heart controls the brain. We make quick decisions and judgements from the heart in situations where we have to work practically involving logical thinking. I believe that a person who is capable […]

Unplanned and unedited #1

I open google docs and type this. I hear a neighbour yelling at the lean uncle who’s laying the road in our colony. I see a jasmine creeper dying. I feel heaviness in my head. My hair bun is heavy, I have to oil, comb and plait it before 6, before we switch on the […]
