Bicycle

I walked backwards, I did headstand, I mimicked, I juggled, did the private dance to make it interesting. I tried to understand your deliberate nonsense. I ate and swallowed my offense, and wriggled on your palm to keep it working. I did what I could. But I can’t, I can’t be the only wheel of…

The Idea of You – V

Hold your peachy face in my hands. Rub my thumbs a little around your blush. Kiss you just a little so we both shudder, and trace the anatomy of your jawline and ears. Squeeze a little your neck in my grasp. Feel your smooth skin hiding hard collarbones. Draw one broken heart on your chest,…

No

I say ‘no’; you say ‘yes’. I say ‘not now’; you say ‘oh, yes’. I say ‘wait’; you say ‘no’. I see your mouth, I say ‘okay’. I say ‘down’; you say ‘up’. I say ‘no’; you say ‘yes’. I say ‘but’; you say ‘up!’, I see your eyes, I say ‘okay’. I say ‘safe?’;…

One fine kiss

I’m high, but can you please clarify, why do you slip your tongue in my mouth, when you have to act so shy? If this is how you take control, then please know, it works like charm. If it’s some game, then darling you win. If it’s a litmus test, know that it’s all red;…

A snippet from Together Never

It had been three days fighting the temptation. Despite normal handshakes, Neal didn’t touch Marisa, nor had an edgy conversation that could stir the allure and made him crawl toward her. The pain Marisa felt was not limited to her. It had also twirled around Neal’s abdomen. But unlike her, he had googled that it…

Introducing Lina

Lina is thin, like a supermodel who would go any length to maintain her waistline, like someone malnourished who would get barely one meal a day. I often tease, running my fingers down her ribs, counting those little speed-breakers, you are the prettiest skeleton I know, to annoy her a bit. Sometimes, she laughs on…

Telepathy

It’s difficult to comprehend the gist of my mood. Feels like I was sliced in half, and glued again. My nerves stitched down by someone naïve. I am little bit upset, but that’s insignificant. I lie next to you, close enough to feel your breath, but too far away to touch, as if my limbs…

The Lab Rat

She asks same question over and over: “do you love me?” like interrogation, as if trying to find a pattern, an anomaly in my response. Every time she does this, her pupils grow bigger covering most of the iris of her eyes, her expressions tense and her grip tight on my arm. Then when I…

Full Circle

Life has come to a full circle in this city of dreams. A year, gone in a moment, feels like a lifetime. Trapped in shackles of routine, I often rebel for the memories I’d made and cherish which I couldn’t in time. Isn’t it funny we all act often too late? Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow…

The Idea of you – III

The idea to pull you out once I’ve pushed you down to be drowned. Fill your lungs with Oxygen, then watch you dry on the ground. So, you would know a near-death experience – exactly how it feels to be in love with you. You may not know how much torment I’ve already gone through…

In poetry

so when you are bored by your routine, and damn ditched by endorphin. when you’re in need to recharge your batteries. come find me at the bank of my miseries. I’ll put my sting to rest awhile. I won’t bite you. we can plug each other to the cosmic ripple, and let the interstellar magic…

Unfinished-IV

A warrior of metaphysical battle, as if she had the weight of whole world on her shoulders. She suffered the curse of Gods, endured the wrath of monsters. Her wings withered. Her body turned a titanium case. Her fingers, wrapped on a spear, forgot how to interlace. Goddess of love, she, had a lot to…

Unfinished-III

A queen of misty mornings, As if she was driven to be a hazy reflection. Although fascinated to be loved deep, she pretended to get turned off of affection. Winter often cooled her heating body, Her heart was altogether a different story, Being in love with her could’ve been triumphant, But is already pungent this…

You chose to be an oops

Show you the places never seen. That’s where the grass is always green. Where music cleanses the soul and lyrics quarantine. You could be the one you’ve never been. Take every path you stumbled and deferred. Crack every code hiding in random words. Decode zig-saw puzzles and every crossword, Unexpressed emotions, and prospects blurred. I…

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….

Unfinished – II

A queen of twisted endings, As if she had a fascination for misery. Her smile tore her lips from the edges. Her laughter was an alkaline chemistry. She craved for Moon in moonless nights, Hid when it was one sparkling satellite. Beaming in love with her could’ve been a pleasure, But is already an ache…

Death of Her Breath

That feathery touch of her fingers dropping into a sluggish serpentine track on my chest, and circling around my aroused nipples, that curling toes and pressing her breasts on my chest to match our heights, that urgency of her soft lips into mine, that mist of her visible breath – lingering, mingling, filling my nose…

What I’m saying…

I was eight. She was six. We were in park, playing Sit-Knit-Fix, A game of twisted tales, kisses, and Kicks. I point at her and I tell. You know what I’m saying. Dazed, she opened her mouth, But nothing could say. Then I kissed her anyway. Fast forward ten years, We were in club with…

Few Things Spiral

You would wonder, What I’m doing these days, After years stretched between us, I wonder that too; Do you still like to talk till you fall asleep? And want to tweak nose when you feel affectionate? Who you share your secrets with? After all, I’m your biggest secret now; Do you know? The distance between…

WHAT A CRAB!

She had mood swings, Often in tune with librating moon. She was more than one at a time. So much more than I knew. Cuddling with her was The liquid pleasure. There she was. She was here. She was Everywhere I swear. Her lips, Oh so flawless, Kept shut. But her mind, I knew, was…
