Gravity of Love

The sun shines shyly,and the sky blushes in red and orange hues.The rain ceases to tease them both,and the clouds gather to tie the knot.As the Sun finally droops into the sky,with a rosy blush he whispers close to it,asking for the eternity he longed,and the sky nods in a yes.The wind blows and the…

ചുവപ്പ്

ചിലപ്പോഴെങ്കിലും നിൻ്റെ ഓർമ്മകൾഎന്നെ തിരയാറുണ്ടോ? മഴ പെയ്യുന്ന രാത്രികളിൽഅരിച്ചിറങ്ങുന്ന തണുപ്പിനോടൊപ്പംഎൻ്റെ ഓർമ്മകളും നിന്നെ വേട്ടയാടാറുണ്ടോ? എൻ്റെ ശരീരത്തിൽ ആഴ്ന്നിറങ്ങിയ നിൻ്റെ നഖങ്ങൾക്കടിയിൽ ഇപ്പോഴും എൻ്റെ നനുത്ത മാംസപേശികൾ അള്ളിപിടിച്ചിരിക്കുന്നുണ്ടോ? അവ ഇപ്പോഴും നിന്നോട് അല്പം ദയ യാചിച്ചു കേഴുന്നുണ്ടോ? ഇഴയറ്റുപോയ എൻ്റെയുടയാടകൾ നിൻ്റെ കരവലയങ്ങളിൽ ഇന്നും പിടയുന്നുണ്ടോ? ആ രാത്രി ഇന്നും എന്നെ വേട്ടയാടുന്നത് നീ അറിയുന്നുണ്ടോ? എൻ്റെ മുടിയിഴകൾ ഇന്നും നിൻ്റെ കൈകളിൽ ചുറ്റിപ്പിണഞ്ഞു കിടക്കുന്നുണ്ടോ? നീയെനിക്ക് ആരായിരുന്നുവെന്ന ചോദ്യം നിൻ്റെ ചിന്തകളിൽ എന്നെങ്കിലും കടന്ന്…

Degrassé

Entranced and unsettled by the vastness of the universe, experienced in a jolt of recognition that the night sky is not just a wallpaper but a deeply foreign ocean whose currents are steadily carrying off all other castaways, who share our predicament but are already well out of earshot—worlds and stars who would’ve been lost…

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

A couple of years ago I came across one of my favourite poems- ‘Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night’, by Dylan Thomas. The poem goes- Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise…

Monsters Under My Bed

When the monsters under my bed scared me in the dark, I could still fall asleep under the safety of his voice. But today…as the monsters began climbing up my bed, all I had was a pillow and blanket! The End Just some outpour of thoughts in intricately woven words. Expressions from lovers of imagination and…

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…

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…

Modern Leprosy

My modern leprosy is being alone, as layer after layer peels away leaving me exposed. My skin is gone, my flesh is gone, I’m down to my bones. The darkened skies hear my whispers, destruction is my home. The sounds echo through the distraught lands, as I surrender everything my hands hold. No one told…

Icarus

I used to think that I would be a star, perhaps not the bright kind, or the one that shines in the sky. Not all dreams come true. Or maybe I dreamt a bit too far, trying to shatter limits, and even the sky. Maybe I tried to fly too far, but with Icarus’s fate…

It’s Only- ODESZA

The Door

Last year was like a sliver of light under a door; brightening a dark room in which it only stormed, a sliver of hope that this hurt would end. But this year- the door opened to let the light in. I can already see the light swallowing me whole, Oh what this year has in…

Dead Reckoning

To find yourself bothered by someone’s death more than you would have expected. As if you assumed they would always be part of the landscape, like a lighthouse you could pass by for years until the night it suddenly goes dark, leaving you with one less landmark to navigate by, still able to find your…
