Living the Easy Life

Often in the rush and hurry of this magnanimous rat race, we forget to idle over to the lazy river, to enjoy the finer facets of life. There will be a great many advocates against doing this, against living the slow life, but I will today talk about why it is absolutely essential to take a load off. This point…

Cardigan

There is a green cardigan, buried deep under my bed Not the green of leaves, or green of eyes But the green of lollipops meets the green of vintage hardbacks It is buried with blankets, and old clothes that no longer fit, and my parents’ marriage photo album. The cardigan smells of mothballs, and lonely winters, and ecstatic sweat Motorbike…

Cityscapes

I dream of days with you Days filled with wandering into unseen, dreamy places Discovering new crevices in each other’s hearts Looking at the nightlights whilst listening to the crescendo of waves Crashing into the rocks Cliched, I know But then, so is love. I dream of these cityscapes Of spending nights strolling with you Talking about life, old tales,…

Isn’t it Funny?

Isn’t it funny How every minute a person dies And somewhere someone crumbles, Succumbing to the grief, And yet million others probably had  The greatest day of their lives. Isn’t it funny How cruel words roll right off our tongues and into the abyss of insecurity Acting as a dagger to another’s  Already crippling self esteem. Isn’t it funny  How we…

Urbanique

  Dull yellow buildings, musty air Smell of sweat, stenching dreams Sleepless nights, ochre mornings Windows collapsing on each other Like bodies in a metro Shirts sticking, eyes aching What are they searching for ? I can’t fathom whether they are happy or sad Or just surviving Long rides on hurrying roads Smell of smoke brings you home I count…

This one’s for you. A note of hope. I…

Losing Myself

Ever so gently, the starlightFrom amidst the clouds has befallen,Upon my skin, blazingSeeped into my blood, forgottenAnd it led me to the tranquil layersOf miseries long forgotten,Thought beautiful by those of usWho by the pain had grown rottenAnd in those very layersI found fragments of my identity,Like a mosaic built by GodHidden rather carefullyAnd in finding myselfI lost my sanityBut…

Dear Love

Dear Love, Everyone admires you. They yearn for you in the waking hours when they can barely remember their own names. They long for your warmth in the nights they sleep alone, tossing in the layers of cloth with body tired and mind restless. They seek your comfort when tears threaten to leave their eyes and crave your embrace when…

Widespread Misandry on the Internet

“Men have sacrificed and crippled themselves physically and emotionally to feed, house, and protect women and children. None of their pain or achievement is registered in feminist rhetoric, which portrays men as oppressive and callous exploiters.” ― Camille Paglia In today’s aggression of society and widespread knowledge, one often thinks about how females have been oppressed, rather openly, online. For…

I Put A Flower Behind Your Ear

I put a flower behind your ear Its loveliness grew too much- The setting fog this winter Is more beautiful than last year’s fall The coldness of some flowers is much endearing than warmth The Asters I once slid behind those curls have withered I see now, the Snowdrops But I have no ears- But the sun shone like flower’s…
