Sinking Lantern

She was a pretty poetry, Stung with venomous verses. Her eyes were smoking fire. Her heart was weaved in tornado. She knew not how to disperse it. She didn’t have to. Her hope was a sinking lantern. Her soul was inking silver. She floated through despair Where lows and highs were a constant truth. She…

Begin Again

Show me that smile again That’s known to rejuvenate. Show me that passion That resurrects the surge of love. Show me the hunch of warm kisses. We have much more than these crazy indifferences. Tell me that new hymn That you love to hum these days. Tell me that secret That makes your eyes ablaze….

Writer. Fighter.

On a bench in the corner, Lost in the crowd. Adamant to be apart. Convincing self to be an art, And the artist. Twisted wrist, and a split heart. Learning chords on broken guitar back home. No phone calls. No messages. No one’s out there thinking about this lost drone. Vibrating on the verve of…

Faith and the fall

She would often tie me up, in my hands, my legs, my lips. For her I was a toy, a ball. She would throw me up in air, and catch me as I fall. It was scary and a lot fun too, like jumping off a sinking ship. It didn’t matter at all if I…

On your tongue

Ground, Right under my feet is shaking. My mind loves to babble too much; Stumped it’s now, Its time it’s taking. I know my face, what does it say. I’m trying but I’m not good at faking. So eventually You would know that my dreams are in the making, and then you would try but…

Tonight, I’m bleeding white

Tonight, I’m gonna be home alone, They say it’ll rain tonight, So I’ll be… probably on, Some nights are so magical with empty rooms and sad old songs, although you can’t be around, if there’s a chance, Can I borrow your lips on my chest tonight? Ache in my psyche, Holes in my heart are…

Stardust (Valentine’s Day Special)

It’s the magic of your eyes, Like you operate me with some device, I feel I’m flying high, Up in sky, I taste clouds in my mouth, And the flavor is butterscotch, I’ll bring some for you When I’m down, I’m not sure if it is night or a day, As I’m passing through the…

Take you home

If the clouds are heavy on you, If the wind is wildly blue, If all the people make you invisible, And you feel lovelorn, Tumble in my arms, I’ll take you home, If the sobs are on a longer stay, If smiles constantly betray, Days are dark and nights so gray, And you feel lovelorn,…

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…

TEN O’CLOCK

Oh, The tree branches hang a little wider, A Little lower, The sky above has same color, All same stars and constellations, Perhaps; Ten o’clock, The bridge squeaks in some distance, Following a siren to split, While moon remains predictable as ever, Beaming as, is in love this time, Like her eyes, When she paused…

PARANOIA

I’m old, I’m the youth, I’m a white lie and complete truth, I’m trouble – inevitable, I’m the resolve, around which I revolve, I’m epicenter and the circumference, I’m the beginning, I’m the end, I’m a star, In a deep outer space, I’m blamed for indifference, I heat exoplanets, I’m camouflaged and I’m bare, I’m…

TADPOLES

Tender words start to itch, The same those got me you, What I’m doing wrong, I swear I sight no clue, Did we lose the magic, Or I’m overdoing it, Tell me what’s broken, Tell me a bit. Do you wanna walk back? Swifter than you came, But love aint the sandcastle, That will quickly…

JEALOUSY

His hands are way too big Like chimpanzees When you walk beside him You seem his detainee He holds your face You struggle to breathe I’m afraid: a little jolt Can get you beheaded You’re a tiny frail bird So light-weighted Do you wanna die In his small-heart-cage I’m sure it ain’t that big Not…

ZEBRA-CROSSING

How long The road between us can stretch? How far My sweetheart can you go? Charcoal has its limit on elasticity Nothing can expand beyond its limit This much physics I know, But how do I cross this stretch Without the bridges of your eyes There are things beyond physics In this world too, When…

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…

ABDUCTION

My veins feel like stringsStretched and clamped at thresholdDown under Its feet,Hung up I’m the treatNever had seen a thing like this before, I must but I can’t attempt to runWith my body wide open, I learnThat my veins can also produce The sound of a Violin Except of just transporting blood, I smell mephitic;…
