A CASE OF TETHERING

Red ribbon Around my neck Oh, my love, you got me tethered I’m spending my life in circles Wriggling, dropping feathers Wet my sleeves I wring: Why my love you don’t see I’m all soaked in love Plethora of it I weep. Then she speaks: “What’s in the depth? In the place The secrets are…

THE PUNCH

List Is on my mind I wish To shorten up with some twist At the angles it ain’t familiar with: I mean your wrist. My fist is ready to enlist A few signatures with my signature style On your face, at the jowl And at every bone it may consist, The aftermath would turn into…

UGLY

The one That’s beautiful only outside Finds the flaws all around: Small eyes Big nose and who use the hair dye they know, For them the world is an ugly habitat ‘Cause they think they are beautiful. The one That has gone through few textbooks Declares: He’s, the way he overlooks, an erudite. Rests –…

The night, she moved on

Asking me to touch her Grabbing my hands to run over her skin She says she loves me I know she’s abusing She speaks softly in my ears Kissing them with her tongue hard on She says “abuse me” and my persistence is quickly gone. My fingers soothe her hair She appears no lesser than…

Q-Tips

Retired and tired for any physical activity bored and stored lots of wax in his ears, Swinging and singing the song of good old days in his thoughts he runs wild, yet rocking chair is where he stays. Geek and weak lacking immunity tweaking ears, keeping eyes on kids his sole responsibility Round and round…

THE TALKING FISH

Did you ever see the talking fish Or eyes for that matter – Talking the matter of hearts? I did. She had the most beautiful pair of those Like the fish Since they could not see, they talked So much that lips can’t And her lips didn’t However I think they can But apparently Not…

TILL I FALL ASLEEP

I wasn’t sure What will come after me After the broken sentences and dropped heartbeats Burnt skin and momentarily satisfied greed Messed up room and stinking sheets? I was concentrating on parting legs Concerned about the things You would do in the deep From the top. I didn’t know That a fall from the pinnacle…

BLOODY HYPOCRITES

Your brains operate the way mine doesn’t You call me mistaken ‘cause I’m not in prison Set on sand castles you yell on my might Any puppets can’t stand for a fight The way I go is the way I shouldn’t It’s where I doom just because you couldn’t Even dare to think leave aside…

DUALITY (5 Haikus)

1 Opt not for a fling My head often gets this itch Life’s a boomerang 2 Sneak in solitude Trouble’s uninvited, I’m Often audacious 3 The bridges we built Shrink distances between us Let us burn them down 4 Parallel we walk Perpendicular we get Stop on a dot, we. 5 Breaths I need to…

PRESERVED

That day On my sprint to somewhere far (My head kept banging with: ..I’m leaving something with you Something very precious Even if I wish I can not take it away I know, it is going with me as well In every corner of my living and soon-to-be-dead cells Might even be in a better…

100 Meters

Lined up on a track, In a tracksuit, Weak and cracked, Cracked dreams on shoulder, Determined to make it bolder, Aligned to make it straight, Straight to the podium, And that too without sodium, Old guilt makes him frustrate, When he was terminated, by sodium bicarbonate, So he’s cleaned it all, No, this time he…

CHASING HER CHASING PAVEMENTS

This is how it started A day I was out on routine On my way to the things of no matter Stumbling, uninterested Pushed by the gush of mean Obligations towards … eh whatever, Obeying shadows Feeling my feet off ground Encapsulating apathy looking all around Yawning, disintegrating Hushed by the lips of exhaustion To…

FUTILE PRIDE (5 Haikus)

1 Ah, my feet off ground I fly on bi-wheel machine I’m unstoppable 2 They ain’t contest me For her petals I relish Ecstasy I breathe 3 Few buttons I push Then do some (Gobbledygook!) No? You’re so stupid 4 Crossed out bucket list Met the quest of ice bucket I’m epitome 5 A hum…
