Words

Words for you and me, Words said and unsaid, Sorry words, Angry words, Words of love, Caught in the moment’s whirlpool. I am my own saviour. But, I am drowning; I AM SCREAMING! Voiceless… Can anybody hear me? Can you hear me? And then I see it, Written in letters, As faded as an apparition,…

Arranged Marriage

Knock, Knock! Who’s there? Arranged Marriage. Arranged Marriage who? Arranged Marriage’s coming to get you. Thus, began the nightmare. “Ah! So delicate and ripe she has grown, With eyes like petals of lotus, A small, celestial nose, And a mouth as luscious As two carpels of oranges.” Her inviting smile Exposes the pearly white teeth,…

Her Songfulness

Like a rush of breeze, Surprisingly fragrant With an aroma Oh, so mysterious; Like the breeze, which Is alive with the sounds Akin to joy, When she makes Her presence felt, How does one Refuse oneself that? Music she is, Like the sweetness And sadness of the Piano chords, Tapping a beat, Bringing about a…

The Perpetual Ache

  Did you not wished To be forgotten? It is you who wanted That you Should be left alone; The heartbroken recluse, is that not What you had become? It was you again, Who hid from everybody. Looking for an escape, Instinctively endeavouring To remain unseen. Then why, at this moment, You ache with the sorrow, Which…

Whence It All Came

In his reticence, He smiled often, Gazing into nothingness, He wished for that Which could have been his, But was not: His joy, his love, His own little world Within this obnoxiousness.

Dear Friend

For some time, I miss you Sometimes, and sometimes, A glance of yours I shudder from. Sometimes, but, When I see you In the fraction of a moment, It is enough to last a lifetime. I wish to hear your voice, Sometimes and Sometimes, I am glad Not all wishes come true. At such times,…

My Box

I live in a box. My box is not like other boxes. It is not symmetrical Like a geometrical shape: Cylindrical, cuboid, or cube. It is not asymmetrical either, You know, the irregular kind? But it is a box; With a floor and a roof And walls. Pretty walls. A two-way-mirror like walls Artful walls….

Reminisce

He feels she is close by; After a long time, The sound of footsteps, Reminds him of her. She seems her old, Carefree self. And so is he, Somewhere between Lost and spent. The past is put back In the wake of realisation That his love is meant for Anybody but her. But, the familiar…

We Are All Warriors

You remind me of Someone I know, Someone who has been fighting A war, inside And outside, silently, Someone hurting and Yet enduring. She is not the teary eyed one Because she does not Mourn anymore She is good with her sorrows; She has toughened. However, You are no less of a warrior. You have…

A Mushy Little Love Poem

  The kindest emotion, Which exists in nature – Love, Which is breathed in with the air And tasted with a kiss, Who is anyone to say When its story is Worth retelling and When it is sinful? The sun, the moon And the stars, I see the universe In your eyes; I see the…

The Day Before Today

When I was there, In the yesterday, I mean, Some golden hours ago, It was chaotic. My yesterday held me back. The ties more constricting, More sleepless nights loomed. I was in that moment With Mitra, Quite the explorer She is; I am not. I am like the frog That was too afraid to To…
