Let’s linger in the pour,for a little longer than usual.I’ll show you those tiny beads transfiguringinto silver strings of happiness.Hey, can you see those champak flowers?Those flowers would tell me stories all along the…

Nine

Shivers shoot down my spine, how we lost count of time. Fingers tracing fine lines- stumbling to the edge, I tumble out of bed at nine. Two humans flawed by design, error is indeed divine. I resign myself to the fact that I am destined to lose sleep over you, and never wake up to…

The Lost Cause

His eyes were pleading, searching for someone to understand, to voice out what his imagination couldn’t even grasp. But they all looked at him passively, making him feel hopelessly numb. He was looking for an anchor, but he couldn’t find one. So he crashed inside, his muscles rippled. A range of expressions masked his face;…

My Mother- A Warrior

She carried with grace, her dazzling hues abrace. Her body being frail, she walked at her own sweet pace. She fought life- tooth and nail, and on her final journey, after her voice tailed, heads turned in every place along the trail, Her spirit had prevailed! Wanna be a wordmate?

Loving Lies

Loving lies that love lies.. Knowing and understanding, the past can’t be undone; lies get you down, making you want to drown in sorrow and in heartache, until you undo your mistake. A mistake which can be reversed, so life you must traverse, to find your truth and your future, to be the best version…

Adieu

How happy will the mind be, when from your memories it shall flee; escape the sweet sweet recollection of you, and whisper to our past- “adieu, adieu”. No denying, what we shared was magical, but the end to it was all so tragical. Maybe our love was a perfect delight, but the moment and time…

You

You are the poetry I want to write. You are that lush bough I want to alight. You are such wild rainfall, I’m dying to be drenched- a thirst that never be quenched. If you are the petal, I am the dew; an unsung ballad, a canvas of hue. You are the love that never…

Someone

Have someone who pushes you everyday,helps you face and fight your battles.Have someone who makes you believe in yourself,someone who says “you can do it”.Have someone who can love your scars,someone who doesn’t only appreciate your tender heart.Have someone who teaches you to learn more from failures,not just be with you in your success.Have someone…

The Tide of Grief

You said that I enjoyed being in pain, that maybe, nothing you did would make me happier than the shame of my long sleeves; scars buried underneath the soft fabric, lies to be revealed in due course. Of course, you forgot that you were my favorite form of suffering. We never fall for the ones…

The Stray

My stray, I promise not to push you away again. I’m sorry, I was selfish. I apologize, I was confused. I know that you’re not good for me, yet I love you more than I love nicotine. Yes, my timing is horrifically poor, but my heart soars out of my chest and collapses at your…

Firsts!

Firsts are precious; firsts never leave us. Even if we have our seconds or thousands, no matter good or bad, firsts are our true companions. Holding flash lights in the darkness, giving us dark at wind down to rest, they are pillars to lean on, when our knees feel weak, hold us when elated. They…

Graphite

I am a story written in pencil; one day you decide that ink is more desirable- perhaps a permanent state of mind. But I am a story written in pencil; no matter how many times you try to erase, or cover me with ink, my inscriptions remain engraved on your paper! Wanna be a wordmate?…

The Moon

The Moon is melting down, giving the stars her crown. The blanket of sleepy sky, is receiving heaven’s blessings, above high. They are not mere stars, they are the twinkling dreams that the Almighty scatters. The Moon is melting down, pouring her silver shine in my somnolent town. She is eluding and dwindling away, with…

Advent

After every bad day, there comes a good one too. After every rain, there’s a rainbow too. After every hardship, there comes ease too. After every sorrow, there comes delight too. After every darkness, there comes light too. So don’t you give up, for the worst shall pass too! Wanna be a wordmate? Connect with…
