Rhythm of the Moon

An empty room with a lonely soul sitting beside the window, with a clear view of the moon. A soft hindi retro playlist in a loop, eyes half-closed with lips murmuring with the tune. Eyes have a language of their own- a lot to say, a lot they know. Somewhere in the middle of thoughts,…

A Letter to You

For all the hours that I spent tracing the softness of your skin, for all of the nights that we were together, I am writing you this letter, my love. I know that you will never see this, because I’ll hide it within the confines of my chest, locked away like the most precious treasure…

Surprise

How many times haven’t we met before? That first time, at that loud, crowded party, with all those new faces around, I barely noticed. Those other times, every now and then, I can’t tell exactly when I learned your name and got to know you. That recent time, when I recognised your smile, and memorised…

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;…

Our Story

Sometimes I feel tired, so tired I can see a cradle made of your arms, for that, I want to come to your side of our story. Cause you look well-rested, I need a nap in your lap, for that, I want to come to your side of our story. My hopes are limping these…

Story of a Woman

Those scintillating eyes and the powerful aura- she reminded me of no one, she was completely her own, distinctive self. Nothing was more beautiful than the way she carried herself around, as the strongest I had ever known. She was not always so proud of herself, but the beauty lies in her story- the story…

Opia

The ambiguous intensity of looking someone in the eye, which can feel simultaneously invasive and vulnerable–their pupils glittering, bottomless and opaque–as if you were peering through a hole in the door of a house, able to tell that there’s someone standing there, but unable to tell if you’re looking in or looking out. Coined in 2012…

Home

Flickering candles that smell like home- a smell only I seem to know. That reminiscing feeling starts to grow, when your lonely eyes meet mine, from across your warm glow. Maybe your arms will fit, just like my memories, from long ago. Perhaps we’ll only uncover, when you take me home! Wanna be a wordmate?…

Jinxed

Your deep brown eyes, They were so mysterious. It lured me in, like a moth turn to a flame, I was jinxed! I knew I might burn, I knew it was all just an illusion, But I just had to go for it, I had to inch a little closer and I did, And that…
