The Sunset

An evening, mid monsoon, mid July, when the shadow overcast had taken a break, they spent the evening, under the setting sun. The scorching heat burnt their skins while the cold breeze calmed those burns. They waited for two hours, two long hours, to watch the sky glow. Behind the grey clouds, the sun remained shy,…

A Gift, Unexpected.

Satisfied, she wakes, Corporeal, her happiness, Memories, of the previous night, Wonderful, marvellous, Bare intentions, serpentine, Thirst quenching, In a draft of emotions, She lays, observing, A heart, hitting the ribs, Heaving, rhythmically, a chest, Naked, unguarded, A shoulder, contoured, Perfect, responsible, A recurring thump, carotids, A face, so calm, dreaming, Harmless, Innocent, An unintentional…

The Perfect Kiss!

She was a little short, He was a little tall. She had to stand on her toes, He had to bow a little. Her chin raised up, in pride, His chin bent down, in humbleness. Their eyes met, And the hearts beat together. They found their heaven, In each other arms.    

Oh my crescent love!!!

Miles apart, Smiling in the loneliness, In you black garb, So adorable you seem, To pull you close, Is all I want, On this moonlit night, Oh my crescent love!

Mind Games

Reality isn’t what we see, but what we understand. In the past few years, I have had the opportunity to observe a lot of people, people belonging to various strata of the society. However, the one thing that has deeply embedded my mind is the fact that everybody is different and yet, everybody is the…

Metamorphosis!!!

Today, when I look back at the situation I was in a year ago, I smile to myself because I survived. Life has changed amazingly in the past calendar year. The journey has been overwhelming, a metamorphosis, from a girl into a woman.  Challenged with difficulties at every step, from a tiny hurdle to a…

The Path

Standing at the crux of my life, I think, Which road should I take? Should I listen to my heart? Should I listen to my brain? Tormenting, these moments, These forked paths, They lead me no where, I stand, stagnant and defeated. Fork

Are they real?

Have you ever wondered why do you dream? What are these dreams? Story from a different lifetime? Future events? Or a mind game? A conscious effort? Or a subconscious picture? It is said that you dream what you think, but many a times we don’t dream what we think. In fact, we dreams of things we…

Pensive of Karma

Bit by bit, it fills, Deed by deed it fills, Your pensive, Your pensive of Karma. A little tilt here, A little tilt there, It floats, Balancing itself. Weighing positive at times, Weighing negative, mostly, It sways, Your pensive of Karma. You will have to answer, Oh yes you will, If you can’t keep it…

Don’t give up, yet…

I picture myself sitting on my couch with a cup of steaming coffee in my hand. The cup is so hot against my hands but everything else is so cold, so numb. I am looking out of the window, its hazy. All I see a these tiny little drops racing their way down the glass….

To live or to survive?

Does living and surviving mean the same? Does living for long years mean a survival? Or does survival mean living for long years? If you answered as a yes, you are wrong. These two words, though intricately related to one another, do not have the same meaning. One may survive, for ages but what is…
