Reminiscence

​When I’m gone,
Do you promise to remember what the sound of my voice felt like? 
How my fingers slipped into your palm
How your wrist felt my pulse.
Remember the way you smiled
When I inked you in my poetry,
When every word had something to speak of you.
Remember the gleam in my eyes
As they reflected yours, 
How my name echoed with yours.
Remember the way I espied you
A way none else could
With belief more than yours on yourself. 
Remember my warmth, when you’re stranded out cold
Remember every second, when you had my hand to hold. 
When I bid adios, when all of me will fade, Every shade, 
My voice, my image, my essence, 
Do you promise to keep me safe
In your Reminiscence?

Kindness is a sin

​I plucked flowers from my tiara, scattered them upon the graves.
I bled and drops were dropped,
to let all know,longanimity isn’t theirs alone.
With my tears, I stained every sheet,
For the callous to know, that sentient lives still exist.
My song emanated as I traversed through every ground
To let poignancy know, what hope must sound.
Left imprints on the sand wherever I tread,
To set an example, so that people could follow my footsteps,
But here I am, getting chased by demons instead.

A Plea to Preoccupied Thoughts (Haiku)

None can see nor hear,
No one’s at home. Yet, I’m
Begging to be alone.

PS : It’s been so long since I posted a Haiku

Writing It with a Gulp

Stuck I was in a conflict
Whether to do or not to.
To fall, I chose, And so I did
off a high and isolated cliff.
The cold hard ground, I was scared to hit
But a glimpse of river made me do it, 
Now as i drown with no breaths out and no breaths in
I wonder how I forgot
I cannot swim…

Saviour

A broken twig is all I was
I kept on falling beneath
You turned yourself from green to yellow,
Just to be with me.

For every tear
You had oceans ready
No, not to stop them,
But to save them from me.

You Grew thorns all over
While I was just a blooming bud,
Plucking remains way beyond thinkable
Nobody could even touch.

You knew, darker than your eyes
Had been all my nights,
And so you burned, yet with a smile,
To give me the brightest of lights.

Red you were, and so you bled,
Piece by piece, inch by inch
Just to colour, just to hue
My full of wounds and faded lip.

To heal my scars
You risked stealing stars
To wash away my pain,
Under the sun, you challenged rain.

You gathered feathers and built wings
Whenever my steps seemed to get heavier
A soul full of love and a heart full of thanks
Is all I have to give to you, my beloved Saviour

Mizzle and Mist

As dusts shuddered with the winds,
I glanced how the rain drops helped them down, 
Settling them on earthly grounds.

And then did winters arrive
I heared vapours quaver,
Just when the dusts lifted up in fogs
I knew they were retunrning the favour.
