A Masquerade

Disguised behind a plastic  carnival masque, life  can’t be more than a  masquerade, a mere facade of jarring humour labeled a tragedy for few intellectuals who shed  crude tears on the transient,  Slapstic miracles  for those   godly beings, may be a loaf of bread for the beggar on the cobbled pavement a dying sigh proclaims a lover,  Life …

Life

Blunt  swords of red-eyed karma  spare no one, A beginning has an end    Fate a meandering  serpent cunningly arrives hissing licking with its parched tongue venoms of misdeeds long done and  forgotten !    By the way What is in life to lament about?   A Sysiphian myth  a vision carrying  heavy rock up a tall slope to  see it rolling  …

Enlightenment

A particle of dust  gliding on wings of  air relishing momentary  life embedded   in a single beam of  a sun-ray, bathed in  warmth only to die the next moment, soaking up all the  light in that transient  moment, enlightened  knowing life is all in  one moment!   

Endurance

Every dawn I travel back -forth from hell blazing flames of pain resting in the darkest gorges of  sufferings torments me as naked infernos burn my parched skins   Revealing to me  translucent blisters hiding beneath my skins but as the coolness of  dusk swaddles me in its scarlet twilights   I swallow my miseries like  a bitter pill …

Those Charms & Glows

I’ve possessed my bitter sorrows long back, Adorned and wore it as part of my flesh , Pains which gushes as streams of scarlet blood through blue veins, raging as river Nile  Like whiffs of cheap psychedelic drugs, I  consumed every bit and angle of my grief  For a woman doesn’t become a woman until …

Those Rubenesque Flutes

In every fissure of those Rubenesque flutes I blew to my heart’s yearning  deep sighs  of burlesque passions,   Sync together euphonious hums of those  unrequited moments, which like whiffs get infused in elements of thin air,   A melodious tune conceived out of the duskier crevices of fluted grooves where dwells hooves of undeclared …

Mirror

I looked myself in mirror not able to recognize the former self, wrinkled hollow, patched skin Cracks, folds open up  Oozing dry white lumps  lose bosoms hanging out Echoing a common tale  sordid but mundane An ordinary but of millions Unrecognized in sea of people Burden of sagging skin  Bulbous bones and aching heart Falling …

Shooting Star

The day  I pass on and become a shooting- star, disintegrat into million  dazzling particles   Think of me an anonymous vision  who came and went on   A mundane dream who lived well and  relished all the bounties    An unveiled phantom who roamed the narrow aching streets as the northern lights,   A faint …

Hundred Years of Silences

A blind woman I wandered in the shadowy woods, oblivious of the shades of my emotions as I left behind the years of eerie silences, unspoken verses, random sentiments… only to exhume hues of pinks, blues, blacks and grays buried alive in the unfathomable pits of heart, unearthed the rusty clots and residual tissues from the bony …
