Autumn Days…

If I stay still
for the smallest spell
I can drown in the silence
surrounding the rustling leaves
when it’s ravaged by breeze.

If I pause
to gather a breath
the crisp, dry air fills
my lungs and pierces me
with musk and mulch.

And if I amble alongside
the meandering gravel path
the fallen leaves
decay into clay
beneath my cumbersome feet.

But for all its romanticism,
autumn is cold and daunting
with the threat of icy winters
kissing you goodmorning…

For everyday that we spend apart
and I cannot speak
the words of my heart;
I find a snippet by someone else
that would tell you
how much my heart’s bled.

Maybe letters
are better afterall.
In them,
I can touch
the words that
oozed out of you.

Maybe paper
is sentimental
for in your absence
I can touch
once of yours.

Recollections – yours and mine

Early in the new year, a lot of my creative friends committed to creating works of art for the first ten people who commented on their status update where they pledged their art. The only catch was that the people receiving the art needed to carry it forward. Do something nice for others. For some reason or the other, I didn’t commit to it because my writing had been extremely sporadic and ten works of writing seemed impossible. But…I’m in a much better place now with words flowing just a little bit better.

And I want to do this. Not to insist you carry it forward. But to celebrate my relationship with my loved ones. So please, drop me a line anywhere with one of our lovely memories you’d like for me to try to express. Or anything you’d like for me to pen down for you.


How about it?

And I

want you
to know how
each of the hesitations
and lumps in my throat,
and every deep sigh
is because I
lost your

But I
don’t ever
want you to know
that if all my thoughts
became my spoken words –
I’d talk incessantly
about you.

And I
hope that we
are more than just
unspoken words and
unsated lust.

Inspired by this post on Facebook. I hope I did the emotions justice. :)

You don’t
have to
but I
know when
you’re unhappy
the same.

I don’t
have to
feign ignorance;
I do
the same.

arm in arm
have condensed
what’s left

My homage to my best friend. You knew it was about you without me even saying so. :)

Red streaked sky, water rushing by…
A kerosene lamp illuminates
the boat’s inside.

A soft, lingering kiss
and fireworks light up the sky.
