Pleasance

‘Do you know that Rumi is married to our cousin?’, she asked as I pronounced his name. I nodded. Looking dolorously at me, she squeezed my stained palm with her own and sighed. I understood that she wanted to hear everything. After-all, I knew that she was going to be my closest friend in that…

I am no Wanderer

I still wonder how to wander but often the useless burden turn my journey into futile whispers of mere dreams and never happen. A wanderer has no attachment perseveres as a speck of dust to the vow she made in the heaven she knows to return like a bird at dusk. I am no wanderer,…

Incarnation

I have no words to proper describe my feelings right now, Thinking about those days when you used to crack jokes and how we used to guffaw.  Those days when you used to drop me in my class and tell me to study well and not cry, When all I used to do was cry…

Deadwood.

If I were you I’d tell you why you didn’t deserve someone else,  ’cause that boy really loved you and was nothing but a bless.  If I were you I’d defend your name when you weren’t present with me and few other,  Making sure I don’t fabricate stories and tell you everything later when we’re…

Night sky.

The fire is dead, The ember is gone,   Lying down,   Staring at the night sky,  Looking into the stars, I close my eyes.   With your hand, Inside mine. Our hearts entangled,      Together with unfathomable, And Forever love.

I Bequeath

Once I preferred the company of extravagant beauties, All I now see is a heavy dosage of vanity! Glamour, Splendor, Lavishness, All these things gave me pleasure as I grew, Now purely…

Voice of an Expat

The smell of boiling rice from the kitchen reminds me of you Ma, Now I’m recalling the times we sat together And how you served us lunch from the little you cooked. Coming home to this fancy apartment in the rain reminds me of our little house, You and I going around fetching pots to…

Procrastination

I hardly believe in second chances. Once a cheater is always a cheater. You can frantically doubt my stances, Like I am standing in your way obscure. It’s purely my madness, Thinking of this cold blooded massacre, Disguised as a princess; Deep inside you are a monster. Sinister, I can forgive thieves and killers, But…

Fallen

My gaze caught a flaunting leaf, Brown, dusky, old and fallen. Rustling doughtily to the tune played by the; Gusty wind, with a high relief. Chilling with absolute poise and grace Despite cringe and dead within. No grandeur conquered yet on the show Downturn and dejection are no more But to realize the moments which…
