Far Away

Grey furniture in a room full of colorful walls Black being the most significant constant I look at the skies like a naked painting organizing itself by evening, With the last stroke of the sunlight I watch my sins flutter upon valleys with foreign names My body parts morph into my mind I am my […]

The Cure

Gold like honey dripping from The tip of your tongue Willfully made a way Down my throat Through the Chipped lips That never Seemed to Bother you. Your enigmatic daisies still Sit intact, crowning my Strands like precious Gems favored upon An ocean of Black. The fragility encompassing Each beat of my heart is Afresh […]

Exposed

In its internment, My heart was on Its knees, ever- Ready to serve The master’s Command. Be it burying myself under A mountain of responsibility Or diving in an ocean that Was never enough to Satiate your thirst for Perfection, I had my mind set On fulfilling your Wishes before They had to Travel up […]

Inertia

Purple curtains drape Windows that are shut So tight not even air Gets through, Aphixiated Anticipated Assimilated I stare at a wall For hours on end. I’m laughing now, Like a child he says Because I bob my head Back and fourth as fits Of laughter distort my Vision. I’m happy, Drowning in this moment […]

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. They’re tainted pink & purple, But exhaustion is always Crystal clear. Didn’t you ever feel, […]

In My Mind

Compliments -I’ve always loathed them, I mean, can’t we just keep quiet? Even Pablo Neruda would agree, After all ‘Keeping Quiet’ was his dream. Or was it just wordplay to soothe the senses and brighten perspectives? It’s funny how I sugarcoat depression, Making it taste like candy just so I can forget what self-hate does […]

Rape – An indelible blot upon society.

I feel agitated every time I watch the news. She’s disrespected in every possible way. Candles are lit once her eyes are devoid of light. In the spur of the moment the whole nation comes to know of her existence. I pray that this kind of fame befalls upon women no more. After the deed […]

Solitude

Innocence

It was but a flame, A tiny speck of dust. But once untamed, You ran out of luck. It knew no control, It’d perish for sure. It wasn’t a mere stroll, Against it you were lured. It began with a revolt, That dawns with age. You were a thunderbolt, Satiating youthful rage. As years went […]
