Dachshund pipsqueak

“Do ask me questions. Come to my room, I’ll be very happy to help you. Solve more numericals to score more in exams.” (They don’t listen to me. Do they?) My cuffed sleeves dabbling from my morbid arms; my gray languid trousers lay lively with checkered chalk marks. (A smaller me felt covered in mud…

I don’t come in bits & pieces

  Just slam onto your face and run away, I’m here to prove not to stay. I’m just a coward who wants to stay but when I’m done I’ll run away. If these words don’t explain please don’t fail. Come I’ll try again. A fake story not in vain… Write from your left, maybe it’s not…

An advice in socks

I walk through this garden With you by my side. Though I generally don’t confide But beg your pardon. As we walk by Looking for the same flower; One that would win the other over. We spot a bee, bright and yellow, As we stop by. She feeds on the flower you like And you…

Prepared to die

Kill me on my road, When the mirror fails to confess And I lie in my own eyes. Kill me on my road, When my obsession speaks for itself, And I shall deservingly die. No wince, No mince But just my open eyes Towards the sky. No one will hear any cries, And there will…

Along the rusted lane

Back then, when growing up was fun … Untill now, where grown up is a pun The days don’t count & the memories don’t add up; Back then, when I lost myself. Deep into the well, a sneak peek well! It was dark as it is now, I thought of turning away. (I wish I…

Watchman’s Bark and Dog’s Radio  

The grandeur of the main hall of our house is in stark contrast with our wooden dining. Our entire home reflects the rajasthani royalty except our simply crafted wooden dining space. The glass is distinctively etched with beads and pistachios and leaflets sharp and all captivating. Our dining space is small. Our four seats each…

Soldier’s Night

Courage wins a battle, But it takes more to endure a night. When the clouds gather, And you miss your father. When all work is done and all jokes repeated, When your arms ache of pain and your heart craves for home. It takes more to fight the lonely night When the tales of triumphant…

Fifty fifty love

In a gentle song, Like a sweet melody. Not always, But always in her own way. The carrier of life, She’s the bough Which bears us all. One of us with a heart, enduring as a mother’s love … She can be like a beautiful butterfly in spring’s blossom Or like a comforting moon on…

DREAM DEFERRED (by Langston Hughes)

What happened to a dream deferred? Does it dry up like a rasin in the sun? Or fester like a sore And then run? Does it stink like a rotten meat? Or crust and sugar over Like a syrupy sweet? Maybe it just sags Like a heavy load. Or does it explode?

The Red Housefly

Out of the hutch, out came a hunch. Hush!  No not at all. It was and is, Chitter-chatter all around. By no cue or lance, Could you! Flying around all around. But yet something caught my eye. No it wasn’t the fly on my pie, Cause it wasn’t red. The pie didn’t bother me, Neither…

Luckily mad

You see the stars, you saw my dream I saw a bird, that meant you freedom Both of us scared to share Scared to dare We tuck in our hearts And sleeve up our mellow manners Don’t let stars catch you in bed, Cause they are worth your night. The bird won’t wait till the…

The lost bird

26 OCTOBER 2014, 17:03 I feel free, I feel I can fly In the clouds, over the peaks I feel I can fly It ain’t empty but emptiness surrounds, It’s the expanse and freedom which echo in unison Bird I’m, with a cherry like heart Equally big & equally sweet I dare to fly, far…
