Only A Memory…

Now what are you, but only a memory. I can make no more- you are only history. But what about the words you swore? The mystery behind those promises, I wish I could unfold. Now what are you, but only a memory. You were a part of me- every moment being exemplary. But each emotion,…

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,…

Days of the Week

I’m writing you a letter,like I always do,when you fall apart on Sunday afternoons. Monday night,it was raining when I texted you.I couldn’t quite understand how my body was here,but my soul was with you.Little things are like glue,always keeping us together.And no one really knows me better than you do. Tuesday morning came around,left…

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…

Love…or Is it?

“Let us all remember- We are dust, and unto dust, we shall return!” With that the priest concluded the funeral service and the body was laid to rest, never to be heard from again. The cause of death- major blows to the head, leading to a broken cranium and intense bleeding. Gina had met the…

Thereafter

To my dear one, I don’t remember the day I met you, but that day made me remember you thereafter. I don’t remember the first word you spoke to me, but that word made me converse with you thereafter. I don’t remember the first smile you gave me, but that smile asked me to keep…

Embrace the Journey

We often go hard on ourselves when we realize that we’re not where we want to be, for whatever reason. We don’t blame the cracks in the road, or the storms that caused us to trip, we only blame ourselves. The thing is, the concept of blaming should be erased from our souls. Finding anything…

Bloom

How familiar we are with darkness can be quite surprising at times. You sit there and wonder how someone that looks so alive can actually be so melancholic. I believe that this darkness is what sets the right contrast for us to see clearly. But our role doesn’t end there, we don’t just survive and…

Dear Comrade

Dear Comrade, I know your life hasn’t been great lately. You don’t have anything good to talk about. Everything that you thought about your life went the other way. Just when you started to give “love” another chance to come and dwell in your life, you realised that it was a luxury that you couldn’t…

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…
