Life is just an illusion. But you my dear friend, are the magician.

The words clung on to the scarred skin to weave stories.

Dripping rum
Set them free
Into nothingness.

Craving for a touch,
Volatile,
Vulnerable
Those words.

A slight
Sensuous touch
Of the moonlight.
And they were stars.

Part of a constellation.
Each star
A sentence.

And a constellation
Unheard
Our story
Unknown
Shining in the sky above.

A poet
And a poetess
Fell in love.
And their union
Like a night sky
A star and the moon
Playing hide and seek
Behind the covers
Of clouds.

Their passion
Dripping down their
Young skins
With drops of rum
Dripping down
Their tongues

They embraced
The voids
The flaws
And their stories
Clinging to each other
With words
Wringing out
Of their wrenched hearts.

A poet
And a poetess
Fell in love.
Their union
Like the evening sky
Where the day kisses
The night.
And the heavens blush
Unknowingly
In the open
Clear
Evening sky.

Roses rained
On their skins
And honey dripped
Off their skins.
Their sensuous touches
Crawling
Through each other's bodies
Gently
Like a dead leaf
Floats
And flies
In...

I peel off the skin,
Chapped,
Dried,
A little burnt,
From the scorching
Cigarette filters
Clenched tightly
Between my lips.

I peel off the skin,
Slowly and steadily.
Dead as it is,
A part of me.


A part you kissed
Chapped
Dried
A little burnt
Since you left
And most importantly
Dead.

I peel it off
So that
I embrace someone,
Kiss someone.
And they don't
remember
Or know,
What it was like,
With you...

If she's better
Or you were...

Winter was leaving.
And for the last few days that were left, chilly breezes knocked on the window every night, craving the warmth of your memories.

Time, memories and winter.

It was the perfect setup to talk about you.

About all the secrets I know.
About all the things you hate and all the things you love.

And talk.

About your smile.
About your face.
About your eyes.
About your soul.

But I'm not the only one to know them now.
The constellations now are embracing the night. For in the morning, they'll leave.
They way you did.
To be a part of some other Galaxy.

And here I'll be like the moon.
Coming out every night, fading out more every night into the darkness.

Some of me ...

The sky is a graveyard
Embedded with those lost,
Sparkling with life;
And the gazes
Of those silent
Broken
Sobbing
Incomplete
Lovers.

Each breath
That flows
Before just kissing
The scars
On their shattered heart
A tribute
To their once
Loving and intact
Souls.

The breezes
That whizz past you
Embracing
The tears
That rest
On your cheeks
And are buried
Right there
Are the roses
Which dance
To the melody
Of love
Of pain.

You don't trap
Your soul
You are not
A cage
To do that.
I see you
Every night
Letting it out
Into that
Graveyard
That sky is.

And you weep
For the dead you are
But not lost.

Let the night
Kiss the scars
Let the night
Remember the gone.
Let the night
Scream in...

Close your eyes
And elevate
Into the infinite expanse
Of the world
Where two souls intertwine
And unite
In the middle
Of the road of nothingness.

Close your eyes
And come a little closer
So that I fade
In the warmth
Of your breaths.

Close your eyes
And lose yourself,
As I did,
And embrace
The union of our lips.
The softness of your lips,
Against the gore
Dripping off mine.

Close your eyes,
And imagine us
In a world
Where we're the only inhabitants.

Close your eyes
And elevate
Into the infinite expanse
Of the world
Where two souls intertwine
And unite
In the middle
Of the road of nothingness.
Close your eyes.

It was a cold evening. Autumn was bidding farewell to the lonely world after having embraced it with it's metaphoric poetry that was seen only by the teary eyes or hearts that were drenched in love. The crumpled leaves engulfed the paths like a carpet that had been laid down for the fall to depart to come again after the scorching summer heat had quaffed the inhabitants of the exhausting ordeal in wait of warmth that soothed their shivering souls.

I walked on the leaf-laden path aimlessly, waiting for the tempest to come and pass by so I could enjoy the squall and cherish the silence that it leaves behind. The path looked squalid to many but I and many other who shared warmths or craved i...

Letters I wrote to her
Letter no. 1

Death, I have seen triggers the heart to flow in the commodious ocean of of love.
You see, you hear of someone dying and you're suddenly it by a huge restlessness. An unheard commotion deep within that flashes ardent memories from the past and pulls you into the labyrinth of love, not out of sympathy but out of the thought of being able to make last memories to be cherished.
To see a smile on that face, because it might be there for the last time before the eyelashes kiss and unite forever.

I thought of a life without you, thought so for just a few minutes before those thoughts could captivate the happiness you had gifted me with. I thought of a l...

Let's get lost in a night,
A night in which we don't make love,
A night in which we don't cuddle,
A night in which we don't share words,
A night in which we just share our togetherness,
And embrace the presence of each other's soul.
A night far away
From words and expressions.
A night in which we just share moments
And don't intertwine in any sense.
A night in which,
We look up at the sky and talk to the moon,
A night in which stars are our only companions
And silence the only language.

When you come to visit me
This time,
I'll not utter a word
And hold your hand.

I'll lead you through the attic
With no words said,
No thoughts shared
To the dim room
Of memories.

Where love resides
And our story lies hidden.

I'll let the memories
Take over the moment
And warp dimensions
To freeze that moment.

For that second;
Will be my last.
And before it passes
And loses its worth
In the enclosing measurements
Of breaths
known as 'time'.

And before its lost,
I want to be lost
With you
Into oblivion.

The light in the room
Will walk away to
give us a moment of togetherness.

And in that silence,
In that nothingness,
In that loneliness,
I won't be...

And I'll still remember

The taste of your lips
Forever.

Hug me a lustrum later
And I'll still feel the warmth

And I'll still remember

A smile,
Too enticing,
That calls for love
From each shred of my bone.

The porch,
the aisle,
the balcony,
the terrace,
the room
Each corner smells of you.

There's a part of you,
a part of you
in the memories
that engulf my vision
on those abandoned,
lonely roads.

Where my hand craves
the touch of your
warm skin.
Where my fingers wait
to intertwine with yours.

Where my smile waits
for your presence.
Because it doesn't come to me,
Unless I look at you
and absorb enough of you
in my veins
to breathe
and achieve solace.

The poems I pen down,
The heartbreak that I speak of,
Has remnants of you.

The breaths felt heavy as the sun drowned behind the mountains, to kiss the horizon once again after the moon had flirted with and embraced the stars after a night.
The stars shined bright and casted the light to my eyes, their image distorted by the curvature of a bottle that lay abandoned in front of me.
The bottle had glitters floating in the vacuum inside it.
Little did I know, in this brief period of musing that I was captivated in, the night wasn't going to leave me any less befuddled.
And there was life's wile for me, lying in a bottle. The bottle of memories.

The thundering breezes suddenly fainted to witness a broken heart get sloshed in memories. The stars shimmered to fix ...

My teardrops rest on the paper now, embracing the ink and blotting it. This was another letter I sat down to pen to be sent to you. But this time it was different. This time blotted ink was a mark that would tell you about the tears that I cried while remembering you.
The tears of wait. The tears of longing for a letter you never sent. The tears that seek the answers to the questions that I ask. But these tears evaporate away too quickly when the volatility of time takes them away into the sublimity of life.
I write down to you. I will, always. For not just this lifetime but for the coming ones too. For ages. For seasons that pass. For decades. For centuries. For eons.
Because every time...

The sombre sky of this languid evening was very much different today, perhaps because I didn't have to ache my neck and crane it upwards to look at it but instead, I just had to gaze down to see the clouds floating like damp cotton balls, as if they seized some pain inside them, collecting miseries of souls above whom they hovered. 35,000 feet above the ground , high above; amidst these clouds of sorrows, I stared out of the tiny window into oblivion to see the horizon painted in different shades of soothing fire of passion. Of compassionate love. Of shades of red, orange and yellow.

A flock of birds flew by as if to peck the floating yet stagnant clouds to mould them into messages for a lo...

I've seen you just once, for moments that can't be counted. Because in just a moment, you gave me something to remember for a lifetime. You gave me your remembrance. I don't know who you are. I don't know where you're from. But I know wherever you are, you're still as beautiful as you were the day I saw you.

The sun reflected off your vibtant skin. Your hair shining in shades of gold due to the reflection. Your eyes captivated me like they had a universe inisde them. And for a moment, just a split second, I was there in that universe when you looked at me. For a moment, I was lost in those eyes.

Honey your soft skin
I wonder where have you been?

You mesmerize; you hypnotize
Moments with you looks enticed!

You & Me, let's add up some spice
Hold your breathe, close your eyes

Will give you a pleasant surprise...

I lean in a little, diving in your deep eyes
Entangled in it, my emotions can't hide
Holding you, my heart is gushing
When you shy I love that blushing

Embracing your touch...
Forgetting all the petty lies.

Your warmth entices my heart & everything looks so fine...
As I wrestle your tongue down with mine.

Nothing at this moment is verbal
The love we have is eternal.

Also, thank you Vidya for the help. The efforts you...

What do you seek in the mirror?
In the stagnant water of the pond when you look at it?
What do you seek in the reflection?
It's you staring back into your demonic eyes,
That will open up into your angelic soul.
And confront you with the little flower of life that awaits it's continuum to eternity,
Once swayed by the breezes of love.

I lay my worries to rest after the tempest,
After the catastrophe has passed by
And failed miserably to captivate me in the labyrinthine of its commotion.
For I let the silence before the thunder sink in,
And yet found solace in the quieter silence that follows the peaceful snow.
Frozen, yet the warmest. The most silent.

I waited for the doomsday,
The apocalypse
And the moment when my remnants will be the aftermath of the catastrophe.

When my breaths will be absorbed and fade into the cosmic presence of souls that knew of the heart-wrenching saga that agonised my tears.

I waited to achieve solace
I waited for immortality to pull me back into the clear waters and skies concealed by veils of clouds.
Impatient as I always was, I turned the placid ocean inside me into a whirlpool of destruction by the todes of thoughts that drowned me and drenched the ones in the vicinity.

The happenings inside me enticed the door and allured it into an early arrival.

My soul curled up like a lost, exhausted being goes to sleep amidst the freezing temperature to warm itself up because the coldness of events had turned it numb. I got reminded of the warmth your breaths engulfed me in. Gently, as they crawled on my ageing skin to embrace it. I stood in the middle of a somnolent town where the languid breezes screamed your name out in the hollowness of my heart in an attempt of a perpetual reverberation so that you reside inside me, your name oscillates in the hollowness that resides inside me. Because as much as I was a part of my own self, much more was I yours. As much as my heart throbbed to keep me alive, much more did it pump your remembrance to each ti...

I fell for you like the brownish crumpled leaves fall off the exhausted trees every autumn. Softly like the snowflakes fall in the winter to paint the entire vicinity in white. And obviously as Shakespeare quoted "No winter lasts forever, no spring loses its turn", spring had to come for I blossomed with life in your presence. I danced like the teardrops dance with the wind. I was as scintillating as the stars around you when they're around the moon. Brightening up their lives unknowingly. But little did I realise, I was in the dark sky. The leaves fell not because they were crumpled but because they had lost life, they fell in summer, sucked out of life by the scorching sun.

Life was a labyrinthine
Quagmire nights
And dooming days
Flooded eyes
And tearing souls
Perilous thoughts
Altruism fading away
Into the dim lights
Of the moribund stars
That I talked to.
A sky that was engulfed
In the pallor
Of a lover's steady heart.
The globe was under
A chevauchee
The skin,
The mannequin
Encapsulated deep beneath the Earth
And a whining grave.
A saga untold,
Flew in the air
Until a pen captivated the feelings
And trapped them on a piece of paper.
The paper didn't wane
In the juncture of life.
And the lover breathed in the grave.
In silence
In torment
In heartbreak
In love.
In happiness.
In freedom.

Above the aisle, under the lit chandelier with the light reflecting off your face with an intensity and luminosity that can put the outer space to shame? Will you still be there draped in a veil of love and your Kohl laden eyes shifting their balletic gaze from me to the ground as you shy away from any contact of our love smitten pupils?

There was this tangible ache in my heart.
There was this oscillating restlessness deep inside my bones.
There was this unbearable helplessness in the narrow crevices of my soul.
There was this insatiable craving in the breaths.
In the somnolent towns, there was a hurricane inside me.
And you were the one who could turn it into a placid ocean
The aftermath destructing me with memories.
Where I fought an unseen, silent battle after having defeated the catastrophe.
In the silence,
My heart throbs beat loud, trying to convey the pain.
Not through tears this time.
But screams.

Your eyes stare into mine

And let me embrace your shattered soul
To fix it with my not so resilient but warm breaths
To melt your skin
And mould you back into the person I loved
Let me kiss the pain
From that broken heart
That drenches your eyes
And drowns your dreams
In those saline tears.
Let me taste the gore
Dripping off the narrow crevices on your skin
That engulfs you in bitterness
For I know,
In it's particles
Love still breathes.

To disentangle our own selves.
Shower me with your presence for one last time
So that for this once,
When you depart
You don't take a part of me along.
