As I sit by your side

As I sit by your side I realise, I have been so wrong.. This feeling of guilt is killing me inside.. Everyday I fake a smile and act strong, Now all I want for is u to be happy. I regret, for I never understood your love, I never really deserved it all.. I’m done hurting you, I don’t wanna stop u anymore.. Trust me there’s someone out there, Who needs your love more than me. Someone who would really care, Someone who will love u back much more. I apologize for all I have done, I just want u to know that I tried.. But my Heart is something I can’t control. There have been times I cried, Because Read more

A Beautiful Dream

I woke up in a shocked way and felt my heart to be moving in a hasty sway. It was me, binded in a splendid quilt… took in a  deep breath filling me in with the sweet- smelling silt. Recalling, the episodes of last night… Of him holding me so tight. The brushing of his lips all through… Kissing me with the words ‘I LOVE YOU’. But something snaped in my mind then Last night, we were not alone… A guest was to come there, Who would be taking over the throne. I suddenly looked at my side, It was our son wrapped in his arms And he held him all with a pride… He looked so quiet and calm…!! Read more

The Alphabets

They were young, loveable too Some straight, some twisted Some crisply cursive Shining chalk white On my innocence’s slate Till the day, they found their way Till the day, they flew away Out of my bedtime fairy tales To the yellow posters of highway protests Out of my mother’s sacred scriptures To the pink gloss at footpath stalls Out of my father’s one-act plays To the expired ration cards! Now, they are old, ugly too Some straight, some twisted Some brightly painted Overnight they run around On the cogs of printing wheels To scare me the next morning To laugh at my frailty… As i read out the headline Of the front page bleeding over my tea!

Wasted Inheritence

He carried a spear in his hand To protect his father’s fabled land For father had taught him never to fear And to worship his land and his spear So…he waited from dusk to dawn Fervently glaring the remote horizon One morn…they came on thousand horses And valiantly he stood against the forces But…to his awe they offered him wine And four full grown turkeys to dine He threw his treasured spear…bowed down And conceded his fatherland to the crown The crown greeted him with a grin And used his spear to circumcise his skin!

Never Again

The red marks turned into black and then vanished, But I did n0t understand the bitter part of it. When you realize what the time taught you Just like childhood, t’was already all lost. Once I lost a gift and I replaced that with a kind. But the inside rumbles and the face faked. Now tell me, why there is a value to all that wraps, rather than the one that is wrapped. It’s not the final destination that I am afraid of. Even it’s not the rebels whom I care about. But it’s me and my insidious whom I adopt and I fear. Never again it says, that you are driving an engine without back gear.
