the only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion---Albert camus

Sometimes I feel like killing it , destroying it and turning the whole tablet into ashes. But that tablet winks at me and I can see metal chains all around.

I woke up with an alarm
but there is not rush to be ready
we are in different air
with a BIG BROTHER SCREEN
braiding my life calm and steady

what we talk is an open secret
what is typed - a data!
no room for emotions
we walk miles seconds later.

big brother is the new lord
he allows us to express
joined with an umbilical cord
cannot survive if it crash

I don't wanna sleep
I don't wanna wake up
both of them are same
things untouched are real
wooden doors - new lock up

I howl and bark
but nobody can listen
as there isn't any nature ...

Nails gripping deep
In return for warm breathless kisses
How would the memories unfold.....
On the bed of thousand creases

Twisting satin layered pillows
While you flared your emotions on
For the night to be so chilled
I knew not fire embellished in moans

Greasing my body in rage
I never intended meekness to be caved
You kept swimming in bottomless love
and I eased my body
In your bites over my bones

These tales.......... on islands forlorn
will remain unkown
Don't ask me how did it all............
It all started with the pain of
"Leave me at my own"

Those glossy ones
Some cloth bound, some hardcover
And some in limited editions
Yeah..... they drive me crazy

Every word to devour
Can't keep any count
With readerly lust
I crave....... more

It isn't all about stories and essays
They held me tight
When even loved one betrayed
They never demand
And never complain
From the Helen of Troy
To the Testaments of Atwood
They are my oxygen
And tranquilliser for every mood

I am adorned with them
They grow in me
Into these mortal eyes
Like an immortal ambition!!

Do not go gentle into that good night
The dreams never rust in immortal eyes
Rage not against the dying time
You are the mountain, in you flows the stream
Cage not your wings
But rage.....against the Lilliputian dream!

Living a thousand days
Is that what you dare for?
Your soul has lived a thousand lives
So rage not against the dying time
Beyond the hell, beyond its curse
Your body wants itself to be searched
Rage against its whims and plans but
Do not go gentle into that good night

A HAPPY NEW YEAR

Year End

That not so comfortable couch in library where we sat for hours.
That not so special dosa with extra sprinkled paprika on it, flavoured with our friendship
Your not so favorite umbrella of the monsoon in Bangalore, kept still in my college bag
That bike of yours, your 'baby', which helped me at the eleventh hour of reaching exam centre.
It all started with my pursuit of knowledge in university, dragging me till you

So if eyes speak......
What do my eyes speak?
I don't know....., I don't know!

How would I say that
They are as innocent as a squirrel's jerk
Or a fountain yet to be discovered
They shine like darkness in its comfort
Or a dawn yet to come
In a world of mayhem

Should have asked you instead
Are they those tiny marbels?
If dare I trod on them
........will flip my world upside down

Like countless butterflies stuck
On a mountain
Dare I touch them
With a fear that they may fly.
Should have asked you instead
How do you treasure all these
In an endless sky of desires?
Perhaps this world
Will never be shown
Your eyes......don't speak
......they  fly

What do they say?
I don't know....,I don't k...

Dear diary,

Of course I m lost. My world keeps changing and I get drooled over sometimes. I need to embrace failure not because I have failed but because failure ensures success.
To try again is to .......... accept that it didn't happened this time!!
But the start over for me is not IT WILL
                                                 not IT SHALL
                                                 but IT SHOULD
Lets try again.......because there are no end of trials, no end of hope, no end of hard work!

Love is not a hot house flower
Its a wild flower
Born of a wet night
Born of an hour of sunshine
Sprung from wild seeds
Blown along the road by a wild wind
And
When it blooms by chance
Within the hedge of our garden we call....a flower
When it blooms outside we call.....a weed

If  I had the opportunity to turn a switch, that made sure only good things ever happened to me... I would not flick that switch because if I do.....then....
Perhaps I may become a Cinderella but I I will never know that my world is a fairy tale.
Perhaps I will never feel pain again but what will be the feeling won't be happiness either!
And
How will I write on this App?
How will I acknowledge my insecurities?
How will I ever know what love is without facing its opposite that is - Ignorance!?

So I want to eat the apple.
Not because it taste sour
But to know what sweetness is!

Phoenix

Don't let your eyes
Drown in lost woods
Of my dreamy forest

Don't let your cheeks
Fall creaselsess
On the curtains
Of my corpse

Don't let your hairs
Swinging on shores
Of neckbones
Run beside your ears

Don't let your lips
Tuck in
Your innocence

Let them celebrate
For my heart
Which still beats
In your
Imperfections!

Dear Self,
I know your elder brother who was mentally retarded, passed away in 2017. May his soul be in peace.
Your grandfather passed away in 2018. He was and he is a godfather to you. I know his care, nourishment and sense of security will remain a void.....forever! Your grandmother has to be on bed as prescribed by the doctor for her back injury. You miss her the most, you want to meet her every time you think of her.
It's true that your mother gets panic attacks.
Its true that right now your father is hospitalized and his health is worsening.
Its true that your career has sloped down at the bottom making you jobless.
BUT THESE ARE FACTS!
And many a times facts are weaker than abstracts!

An unfurnished carved entrance
And unpolished edges
For feet walking without wedges!!

Empty bottles of Vodka and Bacardi
Abandoned,
Swaying from plank to plank
Through 1 AM breezy waves
Echoing from seashore
With all those half lit cigarettes
In need of some more smoke.

She walked in
Bare
With empty feet
Planks devoid her
Of comfort or solace
Already the girl was running
Out from chase

The planks called out
To breeze
To the sound of
Empty hurled bottles
And encumbered on edges and corners
To the  noise of wattles

Yes, she want to be abandoned
In a strange company
A house of wood
Keeps growing in her mood

Was that my pain?
Or your anger taking gain?
Were those my complains?
Or your temper going insane?
That you sculpted this mortal
Into simmering ether
Caressing my feathers
.......Into endearing dragon

For hours,
Our lips kept smacking in each other
Inhaling your coffee through my tongue
Jeweled in the
Invisible creases of your lips
Do I wear your love?

Measuring those curves
Into your palms
Nidificating in your arms
Do I wear your love?

Your teeth punching my ear bones
Your fingers like waves on shore
Archeologising the unexplored
Do I wear your love?

In return for my nails engraving your torso
How you kneaded my skin with flesh
Into the ether where silence slept
Weaving both of us into mess
Do I wear your love?

Love is a theatre....strangely
The characters laugh to make the other smile
They cry to amuse the other
They are clowns
Trying to perform their best...there is still no retake!!
The curtains never drop strangely
Why?
Because there is no exit here
Some calls it trap
And some calls it roads without map

Short story: Out of Order

Next station would be Danapur". The cabin attendant replied to my question. He could see and understand the urgency and impatience in my tone.
"But the train will stop merely for few minutes. How many luggages do you have?" He completes his doubts."I have three boxes , two blanket bags and one trolley". I answer.
"We will help as much as possible".Another attendant throws himself into conversation with a responsible smile.
The train stops but there is no platform on either side.
"Where is the train right now?" I enquire after gazing through window.
"Danapur  Station".
I have to step out no matter what happens.
" Please throw my luggages out from the train quickly!"

To remember someone with every word getting typed on screen.
To wrap one's feelings with the most toughest metal.
To unwrap them on paper,scribbled with blood.
Writing like looking into mirror.
Writing like staring at own eyes.
Writing like.......screaming in silence.
That's how much uneasy it is to ease that pain garnered from so many years.
It won't come with flow.
It can never come easily.
There is no relief when every grain of salt has promised to sprinkle over sores.

My fingers
Know
How to play

With eyes
On you
And body on
Its way

I woke
In a dream
Where
Nobody lay

To strip
Layers
In moans
And pray
I know not
Differences
Of scream
Or
Of say.

Short story
Wild Creatures
#Part 2

"Keeping eyelids closed, - the most comforting thing to do on beach - listening to the seashore...isn't it?"
"Isn't it, Chetna!!!" Priya wavered me and I was out of my thoughts momentarily.
"What did you said?"
"Isn't it pleasing to keep eyes close here?"
"Yes, indeed!". She could sense the demeanor.
Every time I close my eyes, those memories come to me as thunderstorm, lounder than the the voice of seashore hitting on the beach, the most wild creature on this earth perhaps.
There are thousands of reasons to comfort brain and pass judgement that I am not guilty of what has happened to me. But it requires an honest heart to acknowledge  real fact that now my...

These black flames of my soul
Cursed upon the world

You are the universe
Within these eye's fold
Beyond the grey clouds
Melted red turning gold
Inhaling endless gleam
To breathe without blood
It isn't all about gravity
How this rain would flood

It isn't all about gravity
How earth would devour the ocean
Every inch a discovery
Every drop a rain
Turned tree of thousand leaves
Your every tasted grain

Aren't you that cruel star
In my veins turning crimson tar
Flows till the dark dimension
With no trace of time
My love - a mortal being
With immortal crime
