Haiku – ‘Monotony’

Miserable day,
Overthoughtful sleep; every night
Set on repeat.

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?

‘Two Faced’ – Haiku

What if the wind that
Keeps stroking me, is none but
Ghosts walking through me?

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.

Everything takes time….. (Haiku)

Everything takes time,
And I will probably keep
on asking “How much?”

A Plea to Preoccupied Thoughts (Haiku)

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

Forest at Night – Painting

Browsing through an old sketch book, I found this painting I made long back.

I have painted the view of forest at night under the moonlight (Nature is always a good pick when it comes to painting) using acrylic colors on paper. The abstract painting that I did on the background is done by using a palette knife (Actually, not really a palette knife, I don’t have one at the moment so I adjusted with a normal buttering knife which worked pretty good)

It looks pretty creepy though, like I did some haunted forest painting! I like it anyway 😅

Feedbacks and suggestions are warmly welcome 😌

A Change, for the Sake of Bliss

My life’s book I wrote
Filled it with melancholic anecdotes,
But he was the only jubilant chapter
Worth changing my theme for
