I'm drinking coffee now Recognising the pain inside my head; Could be the alcohol last night or, Just my mind aching to express As each sip moves past my heavy throat The caffeine courses through my veins Making me mournful and sad; My heart mourns and my mind saddens As I get to the last … Continue reading Only coffee can.
Sure, full of leaves, a tree looks grandoise Green, fertile, and significant Like a mind full of ideas, wants, and despairs Then comes a subtle blankness A period of lull and peace A serene dormancy Like the beauty of a snag in the fading light It remains as a hopeful beacon For the coming fresh … Continue reading The fullness of emptiness
Drown in a sea of sorrow? Why not in a sea of happiness? Why a sea at all? The grandness of its depth; The firmness of its evocation; The saltiness of its nature; All of these are the attributes That I reason out with myself Whenever I end my pilgrimage, On the sandy shores of … Continue reading Sea.

The two days has been the same With restlessness of the air, so sultry; As unresolved conflicts went aflame Importance of affected egos turned paltry; Just an hour after night … Continue reading Down it poured.
The reason for friends to exist Is for that little space below their face; When dragged towards earth, not due to gravity, But by the weight of the tears or laughter; You let your head fall hoping to hit the ground Instead, it rests on those scapular bones, Which you knew to be always structured … Continue reading Random rants.
Sometimes the things that we love, will kill us. But, weren't we dying anyway? You know, life happens. The feeling of being in danger looms, The terror of being intimately understood; All that mastery in wearing a stone face, And securing the heart with an iron armor Is as easy as walking on water. … Continue reading A bad student of life.
Someone called it puddle-jumping I wanted to believe it to be so; But it seems more like jumping over the sea Still on my way, trying to cross, struggling midway; With parched throat and dried lips, My disheveled hair fraying and splitting, With circles around my eyes matching the Raven; Burnt skin peeling and bleeding, … Continue reading Scream within Silence
