The skies are wilting leaves Today it rains like petals falling from above Flowers of heaven shed their eternity The earth laughs in cyclones and hailstorms When she claps her hands forests are laid ablaze The fire slowly subsides when the windows are shut And doors forget what it was like to be laid bare, […]

Staircase to Earth

Hell. All this time, he spoke to me in varied hues of oranges and reds. He whispered in flames that burned my head, he moved about in a curfew that swept my need for fresh air. I am a tree, with a broken heart carved on my stomach. The knots of insomnia tighten around my […]

The Mirror

They weren’t eyes, They were Windows to you; A glimpse of my Secrets. No matter how hard I tried, Pain had a way of making Itself evident through the Brown hues fading into The morbid blackness Hovering upon my Existence.

A Joke

When did jokes become, An inherent hub of racism? Why do inane gender roles, Have to play a part in jokes? About equality you preach, Yet your joy lies in racist memes. His eyes are so narrow, you see, He surely has to be Chinese. An accent so very deep, Must be an Indian, I […]
