"The Earth without Art is just Eh"

The Darker Side

She had despised that spark,
The spark of a charmer
That would turn her cold,
While the rest turned warmer

The flamboyance – discomforting,
For a timid soul that thinks, overthinks
In spite of the vanity in the smooth mingling,
Cocooning into preconceived precincts

Seemingly belonging to a myriad,
Those misjudged, misapprehended phases
In another moment delighted, proud;
Yet in an instant a slave of chaotic mazes

Observant, yearning to be ignorant,
Gazing at a half that isn’t much of her
Yet when consumed as an inseparable whole
The darker side, absolved and blur!

‘Coz My Mind is a Nomad

Leave aside your blast from the past
Wow me now, the now is vast

Don’t prepone me, don’t postpone me
Awe me here; here’s where, I’m meant to be

Poised, yet noised; free and uninhibited
Give me your today, the rest is unsolicited

‘Coz I too have unrestrained memories darling
If only I lived there, you’d be left dazed and startling

I’ve had my moments, there and then
Glorious, that will never be the same again

Then why go back? Rejoice in the now and new
Celebrate better, leap ahead of the memories’ queue

Reminiscing bygones, nostalgic romanticism
Ain’t my deal mate, ain’t no fun

I live in this day, festive, barriers unclad
Unfettered, never held back, ‘coz my mind is a nomad

Adulthood – Ready, Not Ready

“Could I get a packet of childhood please?” she asked, like she was asking for a packet of cigarettes. “Mine just got over”. The last few words came out in the most effortless and factual manner from the lady who was supposedly in her thirties.

Growing up was her choice for the longest possible time. And she had most certainly taken this for granted, until it was suddenly her only option. While she still had her fairy tales and fantasies not fading away completely; quite evidently, it was now time for change, for maturity.

The world around was different, very different from how she had always imagined it to be. With a newfound perspective of adulthood, she was ready to dive into this world that she did not quite feel a likability towards. Teenage passions, manners, indulgences were all holding her back, the shackles just wouldn’t break, leaving her hanging somewhere in between! No matter how hard she tried to fit into the grown up world, her trials had childlike errors, a lot of them.

The world she had gotten into, did not seem to be very forgiving towards an erred adult. Still hanging in between she pulled out a cigarette, the last one from her box; lit it up and filled her lungs. In that burning moment of realization, retrospection and aspiration, she handed the empty box to some more emptiness and said, “Could I get a packet of childhood please? Mine just got over”.


Vibe or Wish – #newbeginnings

PC Google

They bumped into each other again, after days. It instantly brought an involuntary grin on his face.
In an endeavor to keep his ecstasy hidden, he immediately said in a relatively somber tone, “I, um… kind of, had this vibe that you are around”.
She flashed her reserved smile, wondering quite knowingly−was it a vibe, or a wish all along!

Let Us Know Some More

PC Google

Talk more, communicate
Let me comprehend you;
Your stillness, your madness
The lull, and the storm
That’s within you

Ask more, be curious
Let me confide in you
Show the eagerness, and intent
To fathom me, my soul
That’d unveil to you

Meet more, sit next to me
Let me see and sense you
Your texture and its mixture
The subdued and the rough
That builds you

Touch more, connect
Let me feel the warmth in you,
The pulses beneath your skin,
Orating the nuder story,
That hides inside of you

Look more, let the eyes speak
Let me gaze through you,
Unearth the mysteries,
Inside and out, all around
That surround you

Embrace more, trust, believe
Let me assure the faith in you
A togetherness, without barriers
Transparent, sincere; real me
That’d hold the real you

“If only closed minds came with closed mouths”








The more people I speak to
The quieter I get, wondering
What do they say, where’d it lead?
What triviality will the next word bring?

Words, they’re full of words
Notions of the sorts, varying
Such spontaneity of frivolity
Reckless mediocrity, worrying

The more people I meet with
The lonelier I feel, contemplating
Being distant; for what good
Are ideas, that’re only meandering?

Ideas, falling out thoughtlessly
Unaffected, they call it teasing
Insensitive I say, for last I knew,
Humor was a sense that was pleasing

The more people I see, everywhere
There’s an urge to look away, fading
To a time and space of depth, intelligence
Where souls talk, not frenzied chattering

Where words are meant to comfort
Ideas meaningful, strong and achieving
Laughter bringing togetherness, not secluding
Heart and mind open, free of envy, endearing

Stay Guarded

You keep yourself guarded,
Yet, you’re caught off guard,
Not before long, come down hard,
And you’re restrained again!

Who’s got your back?
Not them, not anyone.
You see, sensibility is no fun,
They’re busy shielding themselves!

It’s a vulnerable world,
The world is, vulnerable,
Never get too comfortable,
Stay guarded, every moment you can!

A Woman

Don’t intend to cage me,
I’ll be gone, farther than I’ve been.
Expand your heart and be my sky,
I’ll soar higher, and deeper within.
