Unrequited Love

I have seen you in the misty mountainous mornings And in the pitch darkness of the moonless nights . I have breathed you bit by bit , Without a bait All through the neurons of my memory , . I have walked with you , Ahead of you , Behind you , Sometimes holding your…

The Quiet Of Indecision & Failure

Have you been quiet? The kind of quiet after a storm , Where you walk through your ransacked home , Searching through the debris of broken dreams and a pile of failures, Where you search for the pieces to build up a roof again over your head , Have you been quiet at nights? In…

Of Cropped Hair And Fierry Love

You have a thing for my neck , I have it for the short cropped hair . I have a thing for how there are no long tresses , To hide my vulnerabilities to you , To cover up the point on my ear, Where your lips sent chills down my spine, How everything lies…

The Silence Before The Storm

Are we the only ones anxious here , Moaning the loss of a battle not even fought , Or celebrating the winning of a war yet to take place . Are we the only ones fearing here , Of a failure that may just never take place , Of a victory that sometimes seems just…

You Have Their Laptop, You Have Them !

Have you ever felt a sense of nostalgia, a memory that tingles your heart, hits you in gut on seeing a gift that someone had given you a long time back ? Especially when that someone is rarely around you ? Especially when its someone you love? When almost the entire span of your relationship…

No longer , And longer

No longer do I want to say , And longer I just want to see. No longer do I want to try , And longer I just want to feel. No longer do I want to ask, And longer I just want to wait To see if it’s really meant to be . To see…

What You Choose ?

What You Choose? I see perfect couples all over , I see these fairytales , I see it from the eyes of a girl I see one man showering her girl with joys and care , with a sense of security , and with a heartfelt love. And then how smoothly they exchange vows, how…

Life Is Not A Battle

I think life’s not a battle. In its entirety of 24 years for me its learning and growing. I wish people realised the importance of being joyous , generous and tolerant as they moved up the education levels , as they passed  or even failed any exam in the hall or in life. Lets vow…

Respect Vs Authority

Sometimes people use “respect” to mean “treating someone like a person” and sometimes they use “respect” to mean “treating someone like an authority.” And sometimes people who are used to being treated like an authority say “If you won’t respect me I won’t respect you” and they mean “if you won’t treat me like an…

How Do You Name ?

You think you can name it? Or give it a vague , anonymous shade ? You call it love ? The promises, the carefully woven words, the kisses, the touch, the roses, the gifts , the poems, the care … All a palace of cards ! You think you can frame it? One day it…

Digging The Sand

Like stranded travellers on a lonely island , Like some lunatics who have lost their memory , Like two old people taking sifting through dust clad black n white albums … We meet , Encounter , Cross ways , Every now and then Revisiting the lanes whose address we have long forgotten , Looking at…
