Maple Syrup

Maple syrup dreams The garden of roses doused in reds Buzzing of bees at your kneecap A handicap desire skips in the middle of my chest My mouth is a hollow cave It hollows out on a platform of colorful lies My paper heart crumbles with laughter This music makes me love you like neverContinue reading “Maple Syrup”

Open Up

When they say, ‘Open up!’ what I see is the picture of my heart running like a wild goose in a jungle of confusion. It often steps in a puddle of familiarity but slowly, that very puddle begins to wet its feathers in droplets of shame. How could I’ve been so reckless? Did they reallyContinue reading “Open Up”

The Question Mark

I remember the Colorful question Mark in my old Sketchbook from When I was 13 A clueless rhythm Shook me to the Core while the Sea failed to kiss The shore I stood still My feet crushing The sand underneath Waiting for answers Then in the distance I watched the sun set Birds flying towardContinue reading “The Question Mark”

They’re tainted pink & purple, But exhaustion is always Crystal clear. Didn’t you ever feel,Continue reading “The Mirror”

Apprehensions Regarding Bharat.

I don’t think there’s a way to avoid this. Every minute I breathe, eat, or talk there’s going to be an inevitable waveContinue reading “Apprehensions Regarding Bharat.”

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 doesContinue reading “In My Mind”
