Words Never Fail

I’ve filled the voids of my soul with slants of words, the curvatures of alphabets to gratify the endless nights of effervescent passions.   In the deepest abyss of malevolent nights, I’ve implored the meanings of your desertion through the arches of letters.   The denied kisses through the strokes of symbols, the dearth of …

Pilgrimage To The Groccery Store

For Ms. Andrea A voyage to a grocery store is a holy kind Pilgrimage to store after 6 is must Painstakingly adorned hair with kanzashi  Delicately crimson-painted lips Sets out ethereally on route number five Enthroned high on the corner seat Majestic, every inch a royal Like sultry Cleopatra on the golden voyage Flanked on …

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 …

Ram’s Arrival (Ramayan)

The sacred sounds of thousand conch shells piercing through the eerie silences of deafening  decades, a mammoth Himalayan cloud bursted  in the Northern horizons over the legendary kingdom of Ayodhya on the banks of fabled Sarayu River.   The thundering clouds wrestled, the wombs of giant Earth quivered, the regal blue-eyed peahens ruffled their gilded …

Let us you and I

Let us you and I once again meet beneath the vast skies hold hands and take long walks   In shadows of blushing trees of fall on embellished carpets of florescent leaves pour out the maladies of the souls   Listen in serenity few beats of our hearts narrate to each other the ancient tales …

Countdown For The Day

Morning sun shone In its full glory Coffee quarrels  Stiff body Artificial catnap Sleep aid pills Did it’s wonder Neighbor’s black poodle  Vanity Lazing on mosaic porch Lusting a blooming orchid Licking edges of master’s fingers Spray roses with No fragrance Hung neatly in cheap Edwardian vase On yellowish marble mantle Incoherent gibberish bla bla Of …

The Autumn Winds

You embraced my being like the fallen withered leaves of  the deceased autumn Shrouded me from the chills and breezes I leapt on to you for the  tenders caresses and fiesty cajolings, but  then you  went away like the autumn winds, abandoning   me at a site where once stood an ancient tree the siloutees of whose roots still …

Valley of Fear

Between here and over there Respites a bleak valley of fear Where dwells wailing widows Behind those green meadows Mourning deaths of bleeding lovers An ugly cloud over it always  hovers I sometimes halt at the fork Deciding which trail to unlock Every path passes the same valley For its almost a blind alley Shall …

Doe Eyed Mercy

The doe-eyed mercy paid a visit last night, the heavenly, at times a wretched appearance of bleak pathos… It coiled round and round my sunken heart hissing gradually stealthily like giant headless serpents seeking forgiveness of misdeed long done an act went wrong decades back… A deserving reparation by throttling my fragile heart to suck …
