Part V - Final
Over the journey in the bus, by being together they realized that there must have been something between them. They reached Chitzville, and joined the Fest. They sensed a peculiar aura as they stepped in. The environmen...
Her silence arrested me. Her no reaction boiled down my heart.
She was one my closest friends until that awkward moment. But then, everything drastically turned sour. I could sense the anger in her eyes, bulleting into mine. I could feel the uneasiness between us.
Should I have not asked her this? Two heavily honking cars went by, as we're standing at the exit of the beach. The honking rang a bell of awakening in us. She finally made a move. She turned her back, probably for ever on me and started paving the distance between us, for real.
Was she taking away with her all our memories? I couldn't fend my helplessness too. A broken vase never gets sold. A pinned heart, can never again ...
For the first time ever on Lettrs, a collaboration between 4 Lettrists.

On the outskirts of a small town- Chitsville, a fest was going on, a fest of jams, where people would blend in organic fruits to make some of the most delicious jams in the country.
"Excuse Me! Excuse Me! Please make way; cartons of Jams coming... Excuse Me!"
Before anyone could realize what was happening, a girl and a boy sat on the ground entirely drenched with different jams.
"Are you blind, mister?! Or stupid? Can’t you see where you're going?!...
"I no longer exist.
I'm invisible to her.
She'd call out my name, she'd even search for me in burning flame.
The pain I take to let her know that I'm next to her, just goes down in vain.
I whisper, I scream, I bruise my nerves, but I remain unheard. I've been punished, twice.
Her tears roll down inconsolably, her silence haunts me mysteriously. I try wiping her tears with my trembling hands, but I fumble in feeling them, just like the slipping of sands."
Fate has bitten me like a vicious serpent. Just when things looked alright and sane, they started falling apart. That day was tough to forget, I was diagnosed with pulmonary carcinoma. I couldn't let her know about the stage. The doc...
Come to me,
As our world awaits,
Close your eyes,
And feel the shade.
Burn with me,
As the candles fade,
Love me like ever,
In my lonely days.
Cuddle up with me,
Feel the warm hug,
And tears shall hold.
Step into my heart,
For the princess you're,
This night is long,
This is where you belong.
Our room turns dark,
Our souls enflame,
Remember this night,
Forget your name.
Guarded we are
In our search, our quest.
Lets find our hearts,
And lose all rest.

The room of mirrors welcomes you.
Leave your sane mind outside, to the right of the entrance. Walk in into the world of magnificence. Brace yourself to witness the ride of a lifetime. These events and things shall be in prime.
Say hello to our midget man at the door. He has an enticing smile and a burning candle figure, don't you think? I forgot to mention, he gets angry if you stare at his height, or even if you ignore him. Exchange a warm smile and come ahead.
Wait there, to your left is the mirror that makes you feel like a giant. You're already a giant if you don't see your head in that mirror.
Do not try to touch any of the glasses and strictly no selfies please....
Untitled Emotions 2
Expectations have drowned me into a disdainfully rotten sea of sorrows,
I looked up to the flashing stars to show me path, through the lane that's steep and narrow.
I trenched to them for support, I was beguiled by them vehemently,
I couldn't resist but to show them my world, the color filled dreams, the color less ones, non hesitantly.
I was living everyday, loved they say, I was dying, without mercy,
I moved in anticipation, I succumbed to the affection, but what remained was just an unsaid philosophy.
Closing like a plastic soul in burning water, my thoughts have always been solidarities,
They couldn't be accepted, because I was never someone they w...
He lost his midas touch. His words turned mute. They reached the point of their saturation.
He changed positions. He shifted rooms. Yet, his creative juices have taken a sabbatical. And very clearly, a disparity was growing within his soul. He pleaded to god, he urged his heart. He, but has not shown disregard.
He opened the door of his balcony. He couldn't control the flashing curtains, flying to that monster wind. He tucked them to the adjacent window.
He pulled a near by rocking chair into the balcony and took his guard. The skies in pale blue, a pleasant evening he thought.
He closed his eyes to witness the power of nature.
A desert he saw....
I'm chugging those merciless crystals out of my throat,
As the volcano of emotions and
contemplating sorrows erode.
A star of a far away land is hitting the sinful ground in distance,
The thudding of it erupted a spooky air that cycloned into the present.
The nostrils of the universe gasped the poisonous virtuosity of the beauty,
Tangled in the womb of lust it spits the remains of her bloodied glory.
Ensnared in the undying quest of masqueraded feelings,
I slumbered to the thoughts of this unforgiving nature in search of its never existed changelings.
I just read few of your latest lettrs....each one more beautiful than the previous...simply amazing...
you are such a brilliant writer...loved the collaboration...:):):):)
keep writing. ...would love to read them all...:)
I sooo wish I could write as good as you ..:)

My Untied Laces
Day 1, Cont'd.
The elevator screamed over capacity, stairs to the 11th level too up,
Even before I faced my interviewer, I had a tired face and life in mishap.
Quantitative easing sounded like a new turf, though degrees I held, I fumbled through my replies,
This interview summed up my day, perhaps my everyday, the dart losing its sharpness with each hit.
I gathered myself to wake up in the midnight, to see the streets still busy,
My awful little apartment adjacent to the railway line, with no love to cozy.
The candles have been burning all night, they just scintillate through the cracked walls, but no light,
Months have passed, still I wake up at mi...
He sat there like a wretched statue in dire state,
He was ridiculed as he lost his hope, his ugly fate.
Gallons of tears rolling down his rough cheeks, inside,
Yet, he sat there, emotionless but strife.
His warm skin turned cold, he couldn't feel the numbness of his toes,
He closed his fists to control the urge, the urge of breaking down grows.
The sadness propelled him like a rattler, he was baited by the chanter,
He gave everything to them, yet, trapped like a bone in winter.
He wiped his tears for one last time, one last time he swallowed the shame,
He closed the door of his room,
never wanted to be seen again, he crashed his life too insane.
My Untied Laces
I pretend to be busy in those lonely moments of life,
Walking the roads with head down and no joyrides.
I look into my watch every thirty seconds,
Wiping the dust off it each time, I rush my feet more as time torments.
Rusty shoe and untied laces of them, untidy they look,
I shake my head as I falter my step, I blame them and forget.
Reaching the station just a minute late everyday, I'm just perfect,
I can see faces judging me just by that, know me more and regret.
With coins that I count to pay off that cab, did I just joke?
He laughs at my misery, but me lost in this worldly choke.
Be my guest said the homeless man to me, stepping down ...
This purge only grows stronger,
The revenge I seek is not enough.
I cannot entrust those teary cheeks,
I cannot again kiss those sultry lips.
The day you departed, that day I decided. That this thing is not ending with you.
That this thing is not about only you.
That this thing is cringing me down. That this thing is burning me inside out.
No more blocking from heat.
The shield I carved for you has melted.
The cross I paved too revolted.
You see the blood on those sulking walls?
You see the collapse of those sand castle vows?
In front my naked eyes,
You run covering those false lies.
You still try to make me believe,
I can forgive, but then, you turn me into a sleaz...
Fill Me With Poison
Ask me to ask you,
About my happiness,
Lover, trust me to trust too.
The way you kiss on my shoulder,
Whilst all see,
That smile and day turning brighter,
Sweet little things and we.
Ask me to ask you,
About your exclusiveness,
Girl, remind me to remind too.
The way we interlock our hands,
Throughout the day,
That air and roads in trance,
Traveling distance and future ray.
Ask me to ask you,
About our memorableness,
Darling, pamper me to pamper too.
Here comes my first collaboration with Hadia (P.O. 98238), the wizard of words!
I see you standing behind the dark and hazy frozen wall,
I can sense the reverberations of your each tear as it dilutes into dust as scanty rainfall.
I touch the heavy bricks between us to feel your love,
That touch convulses me into a state of puzzle and rough.
Nothing seeps past this barrier,
Not even the carcasses of the melting glacier.
The pulsations of our heart synchronize up till death,
Yet, we are separated by the sliming destiny to rust.
The quenching of my thirst and a reason to this love is unending,
But, let me sip the pain we elude when together, let me slip into a deep forever.
In collaboration with Aparajita (P.O. 190042)
Miles of space between us,
And all we share is this vast expanse above.
So do you look up when you think of me?
And is there a star to remember me by?
For I try,
To feel your shadow,
When I meet the end.
But another horizon meets me.
Sweet longing never subsides,
As I watch your gaze on a clear blue sky.
Miles of space between us,
But I'm reminded of never shying pristine skies,
That remain high above,
That recoil our love,
For they sparkle on the dust,
Your smiles and glow.
Just not a star, my love,
Each time my eye blinks,
Each time I skip a step,
Each time I feel the spaces between ...
Fill Me With Poison: Prelude
Induce me into sin,
Caress me with your seductiveness.
Barge into my uncomfortable senses,
Make them your own, in our completeness.
Freeze me in your gaze,
Never let me escape, for I want to be in your sereneness.
Love, Life and Me
Days when I'm lonely,
I peel those scars that are tender,
Whispering shadows of your tranquility,
You thrive me of my missing Schindler's.
Wait till I catch up to your quarter millions,
I might be late,
But, that day is nearing Zion,
Darling, late is better than no later.
Weathering love this,
Sees no sun,
No, not even winter.
Moments when I'm ugly,
I pluck a stone from my raging thought,
Pelted and hunted, what a life tragedy,
You show me the doors to heaven, in reality, a hell of all sorts.
Wait until a day arises,
I might be dead,
But, my grave shall be filled with roses,
No thorns like you, but petals in red.
I'm standing here,
Against your force,
Of our days in close.
One step in tomorrow,
Two steps behind,
Greatest pain this,
Toughest time is,
Now in disbelief!
I don't want to do this. I promised myself to not do this. But I just did.
I just couldn't grasp the urge of unblocking you, just to see you. I know you've moved on. I know it's been quite a few months.
I just wanted to see how you're now. Just to remind myself, how much I miss that innocent smile, those deep eyes. I could only pull a pin and slip into my heart. I could only pierce it further and further, each night in every thought.
I see, you're already in better days now. I can sense the calmness in your strides without me. I know it's been tough for me to forget. But then, I know you're happily married too!
Valentines special #5 : Thanks note
He is a creator. He creates characters that emote love.
He makes his readers live in his stories. He takes them to the joyrides of those temporary worlds. He takes pride in doing so.
He has to recreate a new world everyday, with each new story he dreams of. He is relentless.
He lived through all those characters he created. He sucked the pain, for he has seen the world with their eyes. He loved them so much that, he gave them a shape, gave them that life. That life he hasn't been living. Happiness that eluded him long back. He was content. He had to be.
But what burns him inside is the fact that, he's...
Valentines special #4
Her love has been unflinching, like an eternal cluster of orchids. That fragrance she leaves with each moment we share, I want to reprimand it for the rest of my life.
Her voice triggers the corners of my unspoken heart. Just like the morning sunshine, she fills my day with hope.
February 14, 2015.
A hope, that we can wipe these boundaries between us.
A hope that this world will stop demarcating our love.
A hope that when we meet, the time will halt to embrace us.
I don't like going by the rule books. I don't feel the necessity to stay the way our predecessors have lived that meaningless, loveless frivolous lives.
Valentines special #3
She hesitated to stand next to me. Or maybe she's just shy letting her love out. She never makes anything clear now.
Returning home after a tiring Strategic Management paper, I rushed to the station if she's still there, still relentlessly biting her nails to see me.
I saw her sitting there, with her friend. I watched her blush from a distance. That relief and nerve chilling joy was much needed after our hectic exams. But for me, she was the reason for that tinge.
Her train was arriving in 5 minutes. My train would arrive on the next platform in 3 minutes. I will skip this train I thought. Yes, I will skip this, I made my...
Withered soul of mine,
Pleads not guilty.
Abandoned memories of us,
No longer exist.
Glazing roads we traveled,
Pleasures and cravings,
A sky that's fleeting.
Days between you and me,
Scars too plenty.
Through my ears,
I can feel it,
An ephemeral death.
Ahead of me,
Like a sheltering tree.
Surrounded by angels,
That He has sent,
Void fills itself,
With pride and joy,
A token of gratitude.
That I needed,
Of tears and smears,
And greater multitudes.
Evoked a smile,
Forgiven the tears,
And healed the wounds.
Valentines special #2
In the elevators, lobbies they fought.
For others they're just a couple always in trouble, creating trouble.
Some days they never fought, those days they moved in different elevators too, not to forget, in separate cars.
But what is making them stay together? Almost 6 years, say their neighbors. Phew.
Look, he's coming. Hurry. Start the camera.
"Mr. Carlson? What do you have to say about your tumbling relationship with Maria?"
"Man, he is not even looking at us. We need to get a byte, somehow.
Sigh! 4 days and no answer. It's better if we go to Steve's place. He's always jumpy to get us some junk mews!"
Our Snow Village
Hands, quivering to this cold,
As I moved out,
And shut the door.
People heavily clad in wool,
In that whimpering silence,
And mystified shallow.
Faltering eyes and perturbed emotions,
Rubbing my palms,
To make them feel warm.
Behind the mountains, our village,
Visits us the snow,
And all day long puts up a show.
Walking through those empty roads,
With lives still there,
Without their joyful moments of share.
This rage has never hit the block,
This fall, now fits the dock,
And we, used to this eternal dark.
Must I say how happy I am
To come across
Someone like you
I still remember
How you did
I asked for
From voice notes
To smirk to face palm
How you never
Felt bad for that
I got a friend
Who I could
And told me
“Everything will be fine”
Thank you for
And loving me
Too much (#pun intended) :P
PS: I will not be so good to you always, It’s just once in a while. And thanks for the wonderful poem.
Love you too much too Jaggu :P
Et Tu, Brute?
The betrayal and beyond,
His love and allies, surmount.
A dream I saw,
Do not go my King.
The story unfolds,
That filthy untold folklore.
Senate pitted against their ruler,
His aides, couldn't offer a shoulder.
Et tu, Brute?
Watching in silence they're,
The conquerer, now frozen.
Stabbed was he with trust,
His family and kingdom he left.
That cold and dark, now scar,
Dusted, deserted Northern Star.
