A traffic signal,
Red, yellow, green
At the same time.
A glorious melange!
But, I don't know,
Should I, u-turn?
Move ahead slowly?
Just stop and wait,
For the lights to repair?
Just want to avoid,
The incidence of accident.

Night blindness

I know the sun
Is there,
I just can't see it.
The sky is overcast.

I can't sleep at night,
For I haven't felt
The sun's rays
On my skin.
The sun hasn't
blinded me yet today.

It don't feel right.
Feels like
Its been
Night all day.

The holidays due to this pandemic couldn't have come at a better and worse time.
It gives me so much peace to be working on my projects throughout the day without having to feel the guilt of not attending already bad classes in an even worse virtual setting.
I shouldnt say this, but then, randomly, some people are physically closer, but feel psychologically even farther away than they would've been.
And so many more are still coming to terms with this new partially forced lifestyle.
This period feels like some sort of validation about my whole point in life of always keeping myself busy, alone, and happy.
But then, so many others are in so much pain.
I don't know what to feel but just know ...

My heart was
A burning tinderbox,
In a burning forest.
Surrounded by the drifting embers,
I'd close my box,
Like the laboratory door,
And the fire choked and stopped.
Only for it,
To reignite when the door opened.

My heart is
A burning tinderbox
The box burns with Your fire,
And all I've ever known is closing it.
Only now,
The fire burns regardless.
Not a little bit, A whole lot.
This time though, it comforts,
For I'm sharing yours.

I'd rather,
You expect from me.
Like the sea,
Which rather aimlessly,
laps the stones,
With her waves.
Only,
To turn them,
Into the stardust,
With her caresses.
That seeps through,
The gap in my sleeves,
While I lie here, drunk
On the beach.

Don't put no tags on me.
Don't call this creativity,
Or that logic,
Or another, something else.
All i've done Is
try to carve a difference,
To rebel and
Inspire you to, too
In the end i'm just doing what
maketh me
And those close to my heart
Happier

I cherish every moment,
Of being drunk,
Like it's the first,
And the last.
Just as confused about reality,
As happy as I am.
I hope it isn't as bitter,
As the drink I swallow,
In large unforgiving gulps.
My love for you,
Burns my insides.

I'm not really panicking.
For one,
I know
Tension cannot heal tension.
I have made my peace
with death,
but not yet with the
pain and sorrow that
comes with it.
What has to
Happen will happen -
The good, the bad and, the ugly.
Surrounded by
this frenzy to live the best life,
I'm just trying to just live myself,
One day at a time.

Thought:

My prayers go out to all refugees, waiting at the borders. I don't yet understand how I can help. I still feel like a puppet, yet to understand the true nature and secrets of a vile society.
Just remember that someone somewhere thinks of you and loves you. No matter what.
This coronavirus feels like a lingering genocide of the destitute and economically poor. I hope it doesn't become one. I hope I'm thinking too much.

Somehow,
With you,
I find no need
to hide or lie
or exaggerate
or wear a mask
as I'd do
with almost everyone else.
The differences are but liberating.
Makes it all the more
'special'

I wonder,
That I wonder too much.
Dazed and confused,
Nothing makes sense.
Why does this insensibility
Hurt?
Every moment you don't answer
My question,
Feels like an eternity.
Am I just another one?

For a long time,
I had forgotten what I wrote then,
The words were right
in front of me.
But the words had
gone outta the words.
That is until you
put them back in.
Do they make sense again.

SO THANKFUL

I wonder whether all
I remember
Is true?
Is a dream really,
A dream,
When you can't remember
It? And when
the memory haunts you,
Innit a nightmare?

Double-side tape.

Common. Normal.
A pact. Has been made.
But has it?
Ain't I just another dream,
To amalgamate?

Rain rain go away
Come back another day,
When I have an umbrella,
And a hot cup of coffee,
Or at least gumboots.

Dear Santa Claus ,

For me, holidays are when I get back home.
My favourite traditions will always be my dad's nonsensical jokes and my family's laughter at the dinner table.
Home, the word fills me with warmth. Though I love travelling so much

I believe the world's biggest sadists
Are not those who would kill or feel joy at so eone else's expense..
But those who comfort (or are comforted)
(i'd rather use the word "coax") feeling happy that
There are more 'less luckier' people in the world..
"So sleep Johny! Thank your stars"

You don't realise, they are the ones who smile the most.
And they observe the traffic go by..

Why is talking about death hushed up?
Like its supposed to some bad deal.
But what if Ive already come to terms with it?
Like not that I wanna or don't wanna die.
But that I hope ill be comfortable either way.
Do such thought necessarily enrol me for therapy?
Seriously?
Am I even writing this?
Are you even reading this?
Don't, forget it, go about your daily lives.
Cuz ignorance is a blessing in disguise.

  Why do I lettr?
Frankly,
Its because no one I directly know, uses it
(Not that I know many)
And I can see myself.
And be MYSelf
By my self.

If there was no money
I'd roam the World to the end of time
And discover all the vibrant colours
To the white of the Antarctic,
Because if there was no money,
That all would probably still be there

That heart,

Ain't curious,
Ain't questioning,
Ain't revolting,
Ain't feeling,
Ain't angry,
Ain't loves,
Ain't loved.

So what if
I think different,
I do different,
I live different,
I eat different,
My skin's different,
My face burnt with acid,
I'm force fed,
I'm censored,
I live under the bridge,
I don't appear for the IITs,
I'm not a feminist,
I dont wanna study science,
I wanna do something different,
I wanna hike,
I wanna play,
So what if I dont hate money,
BUT the very concept of it,
Or the fact that it rules 90% of our mindspace
Almost every milisecond of our lives,
So what of Im a Cancer survivor,
So what if Im a thief,
So what if I Lie,
TREAT ME LIKE YOU'DE TREAT ANY OTHER HUMAN

Take on Optimism -

What the f*** is optimism?
Isn't it just another word to say 'maybe'
I don't know how this word has
Gotten into our neo-materialistic world.
But there's nothing like
Optimism or Pessimism.
Things are as they are,
Things are as they will be.
Why do we need to think so much about everything,
As to take on Optimistic or otherwise view on it?

But,

Human is another social animal,
One on a whole new different level,
And it only keeps getting higher,
Still not high enough,
To socialise with north-easterners
To hear Chanu's call,
To have ever heard about Article 370,

What will these people do,
Other than being Optimistic?

Well, I don't think that they really care now....
High...

End of Summer Day....

For my end of summer day,
I'd like to hear the word 'Yes' from her lips,
Before I delve into the chasm of studies.
I want to party crazy with my best buddies
And not sleep till the bell rings.
On first day, I would like to bunk all classes,
With her hand in mine,
I will want to wake-up with that aim in mind,
Well what aim?
I don't know.
Do you?

You don't know,
But I do,
You don't understand,
But I do,
You don't feel it,
But I do,
You don't think it,
But it never gets out of my head,
You go about every day routine,
But I can't,
I may be just another person,
But you aren't,
You don't get it,
Do you?
Cuz' I LOVE you..........

How puny this human mind is!
Thinking it is mighty,
Well that's our problem,
Everyone's problem
Even Mine...

Why do we work,
Well everyone gives the same reply
We work for ou own satisfaction,
But let me tell you one of the most bitter truth,
No one will ever want to work without recognition.
That is why India had Nehru, Sardar Patel, Jinnah, Kashmir, Article 370, AFSPA, Irom Sharmila, The NAGA Pact, the Communists, the Modi 'Wave'
How puny we are,
So beautiful!!!!

Everything else was wiped out, but the tree remained. Shows how strong they are and how we should actually be taking in inspiration from these so-called lifeless organisms.....
