You my love became
a  burden to carry
like chewed gums hardened by saliva
in thirsty mouths and
with no bins in sight

You are now stuck
under the barstool that cradles me
at a hundred year old bar for the heartbroken
I drink the night away but
no one really knows now that
I loved you

I fade with age
I am only human
I am dirt and water,
a little bit of everything
in the sky and on earth

But I burn brightly like an oil lamp
before it finally gives away
everything in its womb
to the wind, to the wind

There are realities
far and beyond what the human mind
can imagine or process
Unbirthed parallel universes,
a million suns brighter than our sun,
moons in colors we have never seen,
words of poets we will never read
souls that belong to us,
deeply connected to us
but will never meet us in this lifetime or more.
Complex questions and even more complex answers with
love being the most complex reality there is
here in this universe,
there in universes we don't know
or anywhere
stars will be

Just Be baby
Be drunk,be Bukowski
Be the whole god damn book of poetry
Be the whole goddamn movie
if that is what makes you happy
Be Titanic
Be majestic and drown
Be art, be Frida
Be love, be tragedy
Be who you want to be
Just be

your breath darling...
the blind love in my brown eyes
the sheets on an unmade bed
the next poem that I didn't write
i can only dream
with open eyes
come closer I say
closer some more
over and over
heartbeat to heartbeat
everything is a mess
mess tonight

Love was war
Heartbreak was a bloodbath
But all this time
The poetry was savage

in the darkest of days
i felt god less
like no one was answering prayers
on the other side of this wall called life
like i was put through this pain and forgotten somehow
that i will be famous someday
and be known for this despair
this sadness in my eyes will lure millions
that I would become a mirror of mistakes
for most who came in contact with my skin and bones
that i will remain even if i disappeared
as a poem
as a memory
as a name tattooed on the arms of a lover
as love in the nascent eyes of
pieces of my heart that I gave life to
but then immortality was never my aim
godlessness is not a great place to be in
being lonely almost feels like a sin

I am not a smart woman
For most part of my life
My heart has done the thinking
And in this world full of brains that work silently
To win every race
My heart loves aloud
Screams in joy,
whistles and applauds even when
Others slay the dragon and win the game
The castle is yours
And I am just a grateful soul for having seen you make it
I am not a smart woman
I am just a woman who is happy that the dragon died.

I see my mistakes
in the mirror every morning
with a frothy mouth
as I aim for
a sparkling set of thirty two

It's sad and poetic
how you are everywhere
and my eyes are unforgiving
now that September
was dropped mercilessly
in this sinkhole by you

The tap is going to run dry
I wish I could just have
a moment alone

Pain plataeus after a point
It becomes a part of you
You find a way
To keep it and yourself entertained
How else do you think
there is so much beauty and art in the world??

The sunflowers turn their heads
desperately seeking you at our window
Clouds gather to grab a piece of you
through the opaque curtains
of an earth shaken room
You sneak out silently
gloriously naked
in your unclad self
From the ocean of white sheets
“Don't go”, says a jilted lover
and the lonely strand of my hair
on your sun-burnt pillow

~An excerpt from the poem Sex
from my debut poetry collection Loveish

Me,disillusioned like the sun at  twilight,
I seek  answers to one pertinent question 
I face him and pour my sorrow into the words 
I know a nightmare awaits me at the end of this line
"Do we have to go? Can't we just be? Why does this have to end?
I am not asking for your life."
"Love has crippled us and destiny wants us to walk", he replied,
"It wants more, more ink, more salt, more chips, more risks.
You have to climb your Everest and I have to climb mine.
We got to do it alone this time.
Look for some answers ,go explore, go find
Let go ..
Release this pain, these sighs in the atmosphere tonight"

When you hold me close
You will hear the white noise of the waves in my hair
And smell of the wet shore on my face
As you touch mine with yours
Inside this skin I am all sea
Blue and crazy
Disappointed and content
Lonely and loved
Angry and at peace
I ate everything that life threw at me

I left the remains of a ruined lipstick
A sigh , a fall 
A fallacy called love
Love, once enough to fill the stomachs of all the souls on heaven and earth
Left them all at the same spot on the bridge over Seine
At a portal named forever
I left a little postcard called you
With the last few words of poetry left in me
Pick it up as you sail farther from my dreams
And I will be okay knowing I gave it all away finally
I never knew how to live a life worth living
But dying everyday came to me easy
I will gladly die another day knowing
You gathered pieces of me
At the threshold of time that slipped away
For I was just there where you are now
I was there yesterday!

Malady

I find comfort in staying lost
My world is inside my head
I wasn't made for the men
Who walk around like corpses
Emotionally disconnected
Radio towers emitting energy and accepting none
Asserting themselves
Seeking  validation from their conquests on 6 inch phone screens
I am too beautifully vulnerable for  this malady
I am silk and butter on bruised egos
A wordsmith with a broken heart
Master of a few metaphors
Hiding  my truth
I was built to poet
To fix the broken
And mend a heart or two
I am happy sad in this space
Where it's just you and me
And our little infinity
It is devastating and blissful
For that is not our reality
I am empty when I am in a room full of voices
And none...

I NEED A DRINK

I looked around the house
and in the solitaire adoring my ring finger
There is a river that flows through this bed
into the living room
And there are muddied puddles
of pain  and happiness scattered
all over its cracked walls
that I walk through every night
as I try to clean my soiled feet
I desperately scour for our song
that is lost somewhere in this chaos
But this river swallows everything
and still keeps flowing
just like me
just like love
The holy Ganges of matrimony

Saw you at a club for the broken hearted,
a place where all fallen stars meet
Wandering and floating lifeless..
High on vodka and
recovering from an unattainable romance
Can two broken hearts ever make one whole?
Soothe the aches and fill the scars or two broken souls
Wonder if that would ever be enough
for hearts so wild and out of control?

I refuse to conform
to agree with your idea
of who or what I should be
I am too much me
to be what you want me to be
I am just too much

I hope you get that
when you see
what you see in me

Tonight she was made of fuchsia dreams
Her pink sillouhette 
Sliding skillfully on poles
In his white shirt commando 
What hope did anyone have
Surviving a hunter as she
A maneater 
An addiction
A seductress
A vixen
.

Tonight she tasted like 
Whiskey and cigar
Unbuttoned down to her skin
Clothed in just his poems
She was an intoxication 
Of a thousand bottles
Making love to a poet
Who had been sober
For a hundred days
The mouths of lilies on the nape of her neck
Inspired songs of love and yore
The words flowed from the tip of heaven
Heaven, that she tasted on the edge of his lips
And the weary poet in him was drunk to the bone

This isn't the end I hope
Though our bodies will never meet at the equator of life
Don't  stop visiting my dreams
Don't stop intoxicating my insides
With every sip of cognac on a Friday night
Let me feel your presence everytime you think of me
I hope you will...
Haunt me like a ghost
Miss me in my black brassiere
And your hands in it
Stay in my eyes as sadness
As love
As yesterday
As a mistake
As a break
As a loss I will never recover from
Promise me that even though  you let go
That you will never forget me.

My knees are bruised 
I have been kneeling for too long in prayer
Prayer for that song that a little bluebird
Sang in my deaf ears
For a destiny that can be found
Deep inside the seed of an apple tree
For a life hiding in the pollen baskets that are
Achingly heavy yet pollinating the pistils of
Hopeless sunflowers
A burden on a honeybee's thorax
Yes I pray for you everday

I am lost somewhere between my death and now
I float around the sun
Travel wormholes
Defy all theories of  time and space 
Somewhere in the middle of no where
Not in this universe
But some place where the ocean doesn't swallow the sun
I desperately seek a fissure in time
That takes me home
Where I hope to find you waiting for me
On a crisp summer day
Sitting under our favourite oak tree
Reading a book
That has my name on it

Seduce me with your words
For my heart is like no other
Broken and imperfect
Much like the gravel around this silent lake
The edges are rough and jagged
Cracks that run through it
Much like the age old porcelain crockery
My mother refuses to part with
It has more than four chambers now
I assigned each to a lost lover
Sutures from the scraps they left barely hold it in place
Blood oozes from my open wounds
From the despair each of them left behind
One more blow and it will explode
So seduce me with your golden words
Write me a verse or two
It will take more than your charm to heal 
This vermilion heart of mine
I need more than just  a provocation
And the smithereens of my heart are done settli...

TATTOO IT TO YOU

I want your eyes
Staring into my words on a cold winter night
I want your fingerprints on the pages of my life
I spent all the midnight oil in my heart to write

Look closely, read between the lines
The hope in my eyes and the midsleep cries
The amorous sighs on my breasts
The failing breaths on my chest
My sins, some broken truths
And the comforting lies

The bleeding heart, the desperate pleas
The good byes
The healing and the recovery
Its all you
Its always been you

Hunt me down with flowers in your hand
With hope in your eyes
And poems on your tongue
I am naked
Clothe me in the fabric of freedom
Give me new wings to fly the ambitious skies
I see you in cameos
On the montage of my life
Kiss me now
Come on in don't  hide
I want see you in full bloom
Stay with me
Don't be so uptight
I wait here with Jack and coke
Give me a ear
Listen to me, spend your stars
Let me cry
Let me die
In your arms
Let me die in your arms tonight
