(i) soon i watch, as i slide another marble, from the throat of the bottle of scotch: we emptied together, soon it’ll be choked on betrayal, like me. (ii) typically a butterfly delicate, elegant, colorful, you were a butterfly, i could never get over from, and you tasted from your feet too, Ah you were…

SMELLING THE DEAD

A sunny bright morning, The wind is hot, Delicate flowers chiefly tuck themselves, Inside the leafy green umbrellas, And those who do not have this luxury, Are burnt already; Stealing a glance, I pass ahead feeling pity for the ones, Who are still up for a fight, With their tiny mildly-venomous thorns, Eager to slit…

Flashback – 1

My day starts, Fidgeting with the buttons, Oh there are annoyingly infinite of them, From my shirt’s to the escalators’, I know something instantly, What makes me intolerably weak – Smell of the perfume I used to wear, Back, when I met you first.

MAGIC (A HAIKU SONG)

We glow, like marbles Crunch and glisten, in the palms Of a magician, Hallucination, Comes with a circumference, We get none although, We’re floating balloons, Flying from earth reaching moon, Our lone ambition, Is to elevate in love, We are magic on our own, We glitter golden, In each other’s eyes so bright, More than…

SO CRUEL OF YOU

The bowl, Won’t break on meteor shower, That’s surface, Is distempered in twinge, Beneath which, Lies my heart defunct my love, I haven’t tore, The wallpaper off its walls, Since ages; Lessons learnt: (They get you anyway,) ‘Drought comes solely for what’s green,’ Seasons don’t change here, Not anymore; Listen, Crippled my visage, Didn’t just…

Her laughter defies the defined limits of time and space. She is the center that causes gravity so intense everything falls in rotation around her…

Feathers

Shiver, In my bones, You instill voltages, In my veins, Your fingers know, When to be feather-like, When to put pressure, And where; I’m a lotus petal, As white as not white, As soft as cloud, You hold me not, ‘Cause that’ll make me, Change color, But you hold me, And I ravish; A bird,…

LOVED YOU, PERHAPS

All along, You were a squeaky wheel, A perpetual grinding, Your words: blustery, And heart with no heart, But I kept greasing, ‘Cause I loved you, It was foam not the wool, I knew but I let you waste.. My time letting you lay upon me, Your tongue tasted bitter cocoa, I kept sipping on…

LOVE FROM SPACE

I wonder, Would you be feeling any difference at all, When up here, For me the nights are mere The presence of artificial lights, Those lit our surroundings on earth, When horizon is away from our nearest star, I don’t say the Sun has risen or it has set anymore, Because days are just the…
