LIFE HAS BEEN ON THIS JOURNEY OF COEXISTENCE FOR YOU

The horizon was all blank when you had seen it then With undefined images and virgin transcendentalism A lot has changed since then, in you and in your life With images, speaking to you, or at times confusing You experience existences, you try to write identities Something that has been the driver of change for you All those years of ...

EVEN IF YOU KNEW YOU WERE PURE IN YOUR HEART

You were never right to say it wasn’t wrong You were never wrong to feel something was amiss Coz you never realized which side you were Coz you never realized where you belonged Until words became too hollow to hold any further It was always a square or a circle with trapeze And not the straight line you had in ...

IT WAS SO..NO SO LONG AGO..

It was so Not so long ago When reasons had gone dumb And senses were forced to go numb Life was in moments but not as a whole It was so Not so long ago When a life was in denial Even if succinct was every trial Reasons came in flashes, on an isolated pole It was so Not so ...

LET’S GO BEYOND THAT CLICHÉ

Let’s begin on something With newness in the air Let’s go beyond mere saying That every day is a new day Yes, it’s a new you every day But aren’t you trapped In a living that makes it Nothing but a cliché When was the last time? When you had run wild, Without calculations The feeling so thrilled As if ...

LET’S SIT TOGETHER AND THINK

Let’s sit together and think Together, That was quite sometimes ago Don’t you think we should do so? It’s been some time When we had last this silence Spread over the colours of us The race life has become Takes us to shores Where words though echo They always look in a hurry To rush to the middle ground Life ...

O CHILDHOOD

(An August 2010 work, rearranged and rewritten today.) Sometimes beginning the day with a whisper, Sometimes with a cry, Sometimes gaping in the void, At times beginning it with an innocent invite. Cruising into the myopic state of your bionic reflections, Jaded by the hyperemia, The ephemeral circumvention of the moment, Drawn away from the routine empirical hysteria. To the ...

OF CREATING, OF CONVERSING WITH IDEAS..

The sheer joy of these days, Of creating, of conversing with ideas, In these labyrinthine alleys of times, The good life had some best moments. Travelling deep in thoughts, Traversing worlds and beyond, I met life many times all this while, And sat with many lives all along. Sometimes, it was dark, Sometimes, it was illuminated bright, But always it ...

EVEN IF I STILL BELIEVED IN..

I never knew emotions could have run so cold I never could have thought so, yes, before it But I was forced to go through it the last winter A frosty experience of a long winter Inflicted on a chilly night on that wily day Inflicting a blow so heavy that it still rains Pushing me to dark oblivion of ...

ON MY LIPS, PLAYING VIVACIOUSLY..

Well, nothing historical like Roman Elegies in this journey, But it still has a story that stretches back to the days, When I used to love its amorphous sharpness. White, or black, or pink, or yellow, colours adored me, When you were on my lips, playing vivaciously, Dipping in me with a tippy playfulness. Today always waited for tomorrow, in ...

THERE IS THIS STREET THAT I MEET EVERY DAY..

It is basically from an old poem that I wrote in ‘different and sometime overlapping’ units in August 2014. For the day-7 requirement, I have reworked and rewritten it – with modifications – and with ramifications :). I chose to do so because I found it close to what I wanted to do when the mail about this assignment dropped ...
