The Angel

I think of you, I think of her. Will you leave in November? I think I miss you now more than ever. I see visions of you in your hospital gown, we’re getting closer by the minute now. Summer is ending, and come winter, you’ll be gone. I’m not strong enough to lose you, are…

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…

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…

Reborn

When I close my eyes I’m with you, when I open my eyes I miss you. The feel of your fingers, still linger on my skin. Blissful sin in every form, when you’re with me, I am reborn. Stoke the fire all night, when you’re with me, everything seems bright. Two bodies entwined- pure lust,…

Mine and Mine Alone

“Tickets for three please”, she said to the attendant. All this while she feigned ignorance, putting her best act, as though she hadn’t noticed my presence. “Well played”, I thought to myself with a crooked smile lighting up my face. “She just won’t let anyone know that I am the only one who gets to…

Seven Moons

There was a time, I considered myself privileged on this Earth, because in contrast to her single moon, I had seven. Her powerless moon forced a reputation all by the charm of Mother Nature, while mine were the cause of my shine. I had never desired anything better- neither did I have any big wishes,…

Nighthawk

A recurring thought that only seems to strike you late at night—an overdue task, a nagging guilt, a looming and shapeless future—that circles high overhead during the day, that pecks at the back of your mind while you try to sleep, that you can successfully ignore for weeks, only to feel its presence hovering outside…

Routine

I missed the days when I went to bed feeling like I’ve accomplished something, now every night I stare at the ceiling and think of the great plan that will miraculously pull me out of this routine, then I fall asleep thinking, then I wake up and repeat it all again. The End Just some…

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…

Miles Away!

I soared high and above, towards the night sky, it felt so calm and serene, away from the noise. I mingled with owl hoots, and flittermouse echoes bathing in the silver moonlight, and playful winking of that innocent shining star. I mingled with the cold, fresh and clean air, my lungs heaved a sigh of…

The song was written by Kamtin Mohager – a band member from The Chain Gang, and released in May 2016. Drive is a soulful song which perhaps everyone would…

My Life

My life is like a night sky, full of brilliant stars. Below, everything is shadow, but above, light shines- something beautiful, a gleam that will never end. I know, it is through the darkness that I see the light. Even though I can’t see in front of me, I look up, and the light lasts….
