What Do I Have?

What do I have? I asked myself…… Oh, I see, A name to utter, A birthday to remember, A profession to flatter, Some pains to suffer, Some memories to torture, Some rewards to pleasure, Some paths to stagger, Some talents to flower, Some strength to order. And, Some youth to squander, Some truth to decipher.…

Me, Today

Today, I heard a song makes me insecure. Today, I saw a post triggers me insane. A date, the meaningful remembrance for blessed many, and, the dreadful reminiscence for selected few. Perhaps, selected by God, or volunteered before birth. But, it makes no difference, Hell was waiting…. I did not know what hell look like,…

Empty Notebook

My notebook has remained blank for months My words have deserted its oath ever since thanks to the light showered around me, I have no use  for my pen, which lies  languorously without grief.  Nothing is better than to live  a storyless life that needs  no writing for meaning—  And when I am gone, let others…

Heading Home

Bid me be silent, bid me to conceal, Secrecy has been a duty to me. I could reveal my heart absolute, But Fate doesn’t wish it to be. The sun’s bright path, outshining my delicate sorrow, Dark nights fade away, delivering to sky another tomorrow, The marble stone cracking exposed its magnificence at last, And yields…

Marigold

Tenderness your gaze, rewards the prime of my youth. Sentimental my phrase, A marigold, I brushed at your every praise. Nostalgia, now filling my breath, This path, ruled by millions alluring roses, glowing laurel and vines mingled close. With billion stars swinging above us, Dear one, I ever wondered, Who would be so pleased with…

A Moth

I was in a state of confusion, How I was drowned to this deep well of unworthiness, With dusty rose fill my eye, Invisible ache my heart couldn’t cry. Somehow, Relieved, No one sees me, sees this. I was in a state of evaporation, How I wished some kind soul might toss down a rope,…
