I head to a bar
And sip on some cognac.
I have always been this person
who finds erratic ways to cope up with the pain.
Who would know it better than you?
The first you saw me
Was In a lounge where our story rests
Rolling a couple of joints
And sipping on some beer.

But this time
It was different  
I reeked of alcohol in a bar
That reeked of loneliness
And before the whiskey could hit me
Your memories did.
There is a table
On the extreme corner           
Of this empty bar
Where I used to sit
And tell stories of heartbreaks
To the walls that listened
And at other times
Closed down on me.
Nostalgia comes and takes a seat
Next to mine
And slides a postcard...

It might be the herb
The leaves
Packed
In a joint resting
Between my fingers.
Or the
Glass
Half filled
With single malt
That stares me
In the eye,
Resting on the table
Beside me.

It might be the pictures
That make me go crazy
Or is it the joint?
Or the drink?
Or our memories?
Whatever it is
Summed up in a picture.
They were your thoughts
Glowing in my face
When the light hit me
And there
In my picture
Were you
More than me.

I wish I could carry your heart
In my hand
Or the pocket
Of my shirt
Where it embraces
Mine
Through a curtain
Of translucent skin.

I wish I could keep your heart
Somewhere
In the drawer
Of my study table
Or between the pages
Of my favorite
Poetry book

I wish I could place your heart
Under the pillow
While I went to sleep
Or just thought about
You,
At night;
Sometimes during day,
Or if I could just
Place it
On the desk
In my classroom
On the notebook
And pen down stories
And poems
About how it breaks
And how it bleeds.

I wish I could have your heart
If not your soul
I wish I could have your heart
If not you.

On angel's wings you were taken away
but in my heart you will always stay.
I will hear your whispers
in the tallest trees
feel your love in that gentle breeze.
And when I find, I miss you the most
inside our sweet memories
I will hold you close.
You are a pure soul watching over me
with all comfort and blessing you bring,   
to embrace my heart and hold it close
forever on those angel's wings.

                                         beautifully painful

People dance when the music comes in,
And they cry when the words hit them.
Just a little tale of melody. Of words making love to music.

Amidst friendships and euphoria,
And love beside them with a cigarette dangling.
Somewhere
Between those stages
Of subconscious and consciousness
I failed
To find
A safe haven.

But somewhere between the search
Of reality and truth
I looked around
To find
A cure.
Memories were
The tonic
That would heal.
And cover
The wounds

The one that would leave scars
On skin
To bring back
The memories
To heal.

The perpetuity
And the euphoria
The back and forth
Brought me
Back and forth
To you.
Time and Time again.

Never had I known
You're not of me
But I am
Of you, yours
Since long
Until forever.

The words clung on to the scarred skin to weave stories.

Dripping rum
Set them free
Into nothingness.

Craving for a touch,
Volatile,
Vulnerable
Those words.

A slight
Sensuous touch
Of the moonlight.
And they were stars.

Part of a constellation.
Each star
A sentence.

And a constellation
Unheard
Our story
Unknown
Shining in the sky above.

A poet
And a poetess
Fell in love.
And their union
Like a night sky
A star and the moon
Playing hide and seek
Behind the covers
Of clouds.

Their passion
Dripping down their
Young skins
With drops of rum
Dripping down
Their tongues

They embraced
The voids
The flaws
And their stories
Clinging to each other
With words
Wringing out
Of their wrenched hearts.

A poet
And a poetess
Fell in love.
Their union
Like the evening sky
Where the day kisses
The night.
And the heavens blush
Unknowingly
In the open
Clear
Evening sky.

Roses rained
On their skins
And honey dripped
Off their skins.
Their sensuous touches
Crawling
Through each other's bodies
Gently
Like a dead leaf
Floats
And flies
In...

I peel off the skin,
Chapped,
Dried,
A little burnt,
From the scorching
Cigarette filters
Clenched tightly
Between my lips.

I peel off the skin,
Slowly and steadily.
Dead as it is,
A part of me.


A part you kissed
Chapped
Dried
A little burnt
Since you left
And most importantly
Dead.

I peel it off
So that
I embrace someone,
Kiss someone.
And they don't
remember
Or know,
What it was like,
With you...

If she's better
Or you were...

If I expect to be endeared,
I deserve to be shamed,
By those who were forloned
By those who were maimed

If I expect to be recuperated,
I deserve to feel the guilt,
For those who savvy
For those who split

If I expect to be radiant
I deserve to be unlit
To feel the torment
And let go until I quit

For everything I contemplate
I deserve to be shown
All raucous truths of life
That are meant to be known

And someday if,

I'll be free from all expectations,
I'll deserve true peace
I'll be self infallible
To be stitched 💔 in one piece ❤️

Let's get lost in a night,
A night in which we don't make love,
A night in which we don't cuddle,
A night in which we don't share words,
A night in which we just share our togetherness,
And embrace the presence of each other's soul.
A night far away
From words and expressions.
A night in which we just share moments
And don't intertwine in any sense.
A night in which,
We look up at the sky and talk to the moon,
A night in which stars are our only companions
And silence the only language.

Kiss me a decade later
And I'll still remember
The touch
The taste of your lips
Forever.

Hug me a lustrum later
And I'll still feel the warmth
that radiates off your skin
and soul
Forever.

Caress my hair
An century later
And I'll still remember
The warmth
of your wrinkled palms
and hands
Forever.

Make love to me
an eon later
And I'll still
kiss you after it's over.
Brew some coffee
and smoke with you
with laughter
Forever.

Hold my hand
A millenium later
And Ill still
never ket go of your hand
For I vowed to hold it
Forever.

Walk a while with me
After a lifetime
And I'll still synchronise
My footsteps with yours
For I'd promised to walk

A smile,
Too enticing,
That calls for love
From each shred of my bone.

The porch,
the aisle,
the balcony,
the terrace,
the room
Each corner smells of you.

There's a part of you,
a part of you
in the memories
that engulf my vision
on those abandoned,
lonely roads.

Where my hand craves
the touch of your
warm skin.
Where my fingers wait
to intertwine with yours.

Where my smile waits
for your presence.
Because it doesn't come to me,
Unless I look at you
and absorb enough of you
in my veins
to breathe
and achieve solace.

The stories I write,
The poems I pen down,
The heartbreak that I speak of,
Has remnants of you.
The applauds I recieve,
Are my trib...

The breaths felt heavy as the sun drowned behind the mountains, to kiss the horizon once again after the moon had flirted with and embraced the stars after a night.
The stars shined bright and casted the light to my eyes, their image distorted by the curvature of a bottle that lay abandoned in front of me.
The bottle had glitters floating in the vacuum inside it.
Little did I know, in this brief period of musing that I was captivated in, the night wasn't going to leave me any less befuddled.
And there was life's wile for me, lying in a bottle. The bottle of memories.

The thundering breezes suddenly fainted to witness a broken heart get sloshed in memories. The stars shimmered to fix ...

My teardrops rest on the paper now, embracing the ink and blotting it. This was another letter I sat down to pen to be sent to you. But this time it was different. This time blotted ink was a mark that would tell you about the tears that I cried while remembering you.
The tears of wait. The tears of longing for a letter you never sent. The tears that seek the answers to the questions that I ask. But these tears evaporate away too quickly when the volatility of time takes them away into the sublimity of life.
I write down to you. I will, always. For not just this lifetime but for the coming ones too. For ages. For seasons that pass. For decades. For centuries. For eons.
Because every time...

"Rainbow8 : A short story"

Monsoon have its own Beauty. In the usual hustle on the street, one can find unusual sightings. At times touchy.

As I was walking down the street, I saw a little girl with her DOG. It was a 'dalmatian'. She was wearing a nice 'colourful' CRAVAT.

It was a beautiful weather, light showers along with slight sunlight. I had put down my UMBRELLA as sunshine grew. I saw a 'rainbow' above.

Kids love Rainbow. So when I told that girl to look at it, she did not react. I got curious as to why she was not surprised.

'She can't see it as it is, she'...

Dearest
I've seen you just once, for moments that can't be counted. Because in just a moment, you gave me something to remember for a lifetime. You gave me your remembrance. I don't know who you are. I don't know where you're from. But I know wherever you are, you're still as beautiful as you were the day I saw you.

The sun reflected off your vibtant skin. Your hair shining in shades of gold due to the reflection. Your eyes captivated me like they had a universe inisde them. And for a moment, just a split second, I was there in that universe when you looked at me. For a moment, I was lost in those eyes.

I'm just sitting here, I don't know how many miles away from you I am, but I'm still t...

In collaboration with Vidya PO#630822

Honey your soft skin
I wonder where have you been?

You mesmerize; you hypnotize
Moments with you looks enticed!

You & Me, let's add up some spice
Hold your breathe, close your eyes

Will give you a pleasant surprise...

I lean in a little, diving in your deep eyes
Entangled in it, my emotions can't hide
Holding you, my heart is gushing
When you shy I love that blushing

Embracing your touch...
Forgetting all the petty lies.

Your warmth entices my heart & everything looks so fine...
As I wrestle your tongue down with mine.

Nothing at this moment is verbal
The love we have is eternal.

Also, thank you Vidya for the help. The efforts you...

What do you seek in the mirror?
In the stagnant water of the pond when you look at it?
What do you seek in the reflection?
It's you staring back into your demonic eyes,
That will open up into your angelic soul.
And confront you with the little flower of life that awaits it's continuum to eternity,
Once swayed by the breezes of love.

I lay my worries to rest after the tempest,
After the catastrophe has passed by
And failed miserably to captivate me in the labyrinthine of its commotion.
For I let the silence before the thunder sink in,
And yet found solace in the quieter silence that follows the peaceful snow.
Frozen, yet the warmest. The most silent.
