Not Tonight…Baby!

By on December 12, 2017

Shooting away the night-
with fiery tongues, angry words-
bits and bits of truth on a precipice.
Mocking the stars-
Sad with the memories made-
a sigh of longing, louder than a whisper
Flying close to heaven,
with a hunger insatiable by the cherry and merry.
They watch the stars dance in a drunken stupor
The…

Broken Things-

By on October 10, 2017

Is it that the sun sets late nowadays?
or our sight fails as we squint through
half closed silhouettes, praying for days of lives.

Are we broken things-pieces of porcelain waiting to be broken further?
Awaiting reincarnation in the hands of the potter-
to…

Requiem

By on July 27, 2017

A time will come:
You’ll be scared of your own shadow,
You’ll seek your kin
akin the ruckus
and clashes of your soul:
seeking atonement for your sins,
BUT there will no time to retrieve your words.

A time will come:
When you’ll have to choose your inclinations,
your fights, and feasts.
A time when…

Crowns

By on June 27, 2017

Crowns are meant for royalty-
not for dogs and swines,
Crowns speak the language of loyalty-
not gibberish utterances and obscenity,
Crowns demand contrition-
bowing down to the deity
and drinking from the chalices of mystery
Lay prostrate before crowns,
YE mortal man-
immerse yourself in the memories of pharaohs,
the teachings of the scribes,
and the written scripts.
Recite your…

Rainy Days

By on September 21, 2016

The sky is drab
A shade of ashes:
dotted with speckles of black-
a weary shade of dark,
inter-twined with dying threads of white

I gaze at the lazy raindrops,
pelting the asphalt:
A symphony of passing time,
A hazy rhythm of life-
ebbing out with every…

Crusade

By on July 26, 2016

A walk on beaten paths, wading through
bushes of uncombed thoughts,
tongue on the cheek,
rolling eyes from the camera flashes
and flashes of stale memories
screaming shades of neon,
glamour of decomposing trash
of the moral fabric;
like they said-lost souls.

But are we really lost?

Talk of toiling fallow lands
Stretches and stretches of meadows
Praying for stoned minds,
Oblivious…

Theatre

By on July 13, 2016

Let’s dance with the ghosts of yesterday,
Precipitation of our charred memories
Sired with the milk of the firstborns
And sealed with kisses of angels
Where bellies full of untold misery
Churn deep threads…

Open Seas

By on June 22, 2016

We find love in the oddest of places.
At times it is offered in a crucible
or balanced on a precipice-daring for the fall.
Other times love shouts a hello in our…

GOD: The Artist

By on April 15, 2016

God is good.
He thrives in details
From the complexion of the eyes
To the last strand of hair,
To the number of stars in the galaxy
to the wee bits of sand.
his spirit is wind,
blows to wherever it wishes: unpredictable, unhinged
He paints the skies with a medley of colors;
shades of orange with a…

New Flower

By on March 7, 2016

Real beauty is ugly
Like a buried seed about to sprout
Life in these streets;
is like holding a fart
in front of your crash
I wanted to write a memoir
Of this new flower;
Flowing with promise
and mystery
hushed miseries
whispered failures
and shouted victories
but who am I to stand
on…
