The cryptic silence of the night
Echoes of a surreal harmony so strong.
With dragonflies hovering around in the distance,
In the depths of an unfamiliar retreat.
As though the heavy breathing of the sleeping mountains
Might get disrupted by the deafening silence
This moonless night.
Magic runs down this landscape
And stands still
Embodied in ethereal dew drops
Patiently settled onto dainty leaves.
The air rings with a contrivance,
That lies undiscovered yet.
The far realms of the velvety sky
Hold witness to this inexplicable silence
Permeated with a profound history
Now hidden in the obscure depths of time.
When hunger strikes
And Adrenaline hikes,
Its time to slow down
Let the temptation drown.
My poetic sensibility wishes to step out
With anger and hunger ready to shout,
Are these words willingly pouring out?
Famished I stand,
Heart-wrenching syllables leaking out
Words drip through me
Famished I stand
I left a few words
Blowing in the air…
In the hope of reaching someone.Somewhere.
Within me are born
A million expressions
Encumbering the flow of dreamy obliviousness.
I hid a few words in my pocket
Some I swallowed
Others were inhaled.
In dubious righteousness
I succumbed to the building force inside..
Rattling, banging, vying with each other-
They seek an outlet
Through my gestures..
Uncertain strokes of paint
Mask the urge to let those words
Every now and then,
I leave a part of me
Blowing in the air..
In the hope that it reaches someone.Somewhere.

A star-lit horizon***
Is a duper after all.
Each sluggish step towards
An ineffable dream…
Each hopeless endeavor
Entailing a million heartbeats,
Echoes of a grotesqueness
An inexplicable force
Is a prerequisite hindrance.
I still walk
Motionless as the air may seem,
I imagine a whiff of breeze
Stinging my skin..
Each blemish – an indicator of a strife within.
Infinity seems a step closer
But there still remains
A vast expanse to be traversed…
Before I reach for
The star-spangled sky above!!
MY sharp edges offer the least consolation.
……….I might tear open a yielding neck.
Of pain are sometimes a torment to my ears,
Till the time
I inhale the smell of death.
I quench my thirst
In oceans of hunger…
In hearts where solitude rests.
It pained me once-
To cut into
A pretty pair of pouting lips
Then down I went
Licking my way
Through endless dusky contours…
I circled her abdomen
In relentless pursuit
Of the one thing I most desire.
The warmth of her oozing red
Splashed my sides.
Her pale bluey flesh
Silently watched the deed being done.
I can be wicked sometimes.
But I……..also offer relief!!
I watched my reflection in your eyes,
hasn’t it always been me in there…I thought.
Its a translucent screen that I see-
A hazy picture devoid of the essential details
that define ME.
The sadness in your eyes together with me in there….was indescribable.
The aura of charm that pervaded them earlier
had now been shattered to pieces……..
They had once been my shelter…
My abode of silence.
The woman who stared back at me today
was the real culprit. It was not me. Never me.
Estranged from myself, I sought desperately to reach back to you.
But its over now…..
Your eyes said it all.
The dark oceans of unforgettable memories
wrench my heart apart.
The hollowness of my heart today
gives way to a darker passage
that opens up to a lifeless existence…
It had once been me.
YOU and ME-
and the world was a beautiful dream.
Your eyes today look empty- darling,
they look choked..with the shadows that I’ve left behind!
I’ve got dancing eyes
Someone just told me..
They dance to the tune of life.
I perceive beauty in fragments
Fragmented beauties…. rip my heart apart.
A cohesive whole is what I desire.
Watch them wander,
Trying to encompass nothing less than an
They are more than mere eyes-
No black bubbles floating on a white horizon
Can define them.
They embody a million expressions
All revealing a part of Me.
Behind their smokiness lies
The true spelling of my name!
