Dear Mumbai

By on March 30, 2017

Your days are chaos and hustle At night, blinding lights cover your skin Dear Mumbai, you are just like me Empty from within Your crowd sometimes suffocates me The smoke of hypocrisy fills my lungs Few loved me just for pleasure Few killed me just for fun You taught me a smile that works best […]

Winter to me

By on January 30, 2017

  Winter is no more about bright red and blue sweater Getting up in the morning and refusing to bathe Screaming with laughter as the skin was hit with water Or shivering under towels to watch the vapour fade It’s no more about asking him two more minutes to sleep Or pretending not to be […]

Trace

By on April 8, 2016

Searching for your trace Look where I was found Flying in the air Forty thousand feet above the ground   Spinning like a wheel Crashing like a car And before I could feel I reached so far   A thousand million lights Flickered like stars so down I was next to the moon Looking for […]

If I Could See You Here

By on January 29, 2016

If I could see you here Oh from where would I start ? The days we saw smile, Or the nights cold at heart?   The songs that we miss, Or the melody that is new ? The cuddle and morning kiss Or the strangest goodbyes few ?   A lady weeps besides me And […]

Foster’s Child

By on October 10, 2015

Running through the lanes, coming back from school She insisted her mother, to dress her in her favourite wool A shattering noise and houses fell to dust Few even sank down in Earth’s crust   Her scream was muffled by the sound of guns She rushed to the ruins, took her fastest run She was […]

In The Woods

By on September 25, 2015

In the woods, once so green Beneath the light, once shade would breathe The young leaves now old and dry Cover the place like stars fallen from the sky   The place had an incense of it’s own when warm wind blew over each trunk and stone Nature has it’s own way to teach There […]

Two Curious Eyes

By on August 9, 2015

Two curious eyes fixed on the way The month of June, school’s first days. Parents crowd to pick their child, This little one just stood with a smile.   With a jumbo bag, as big as she And two ponytails like grape wine curling so free. Her umbrella like a kitten’s face And said, “My […]

Forget Me Not

By on June 20, 2015

 “Let me tell you a story” he said, When I was lying next to his bed. He loved to write poems and stories and had them engraved in memories   The story was “Forget me not” written on a father and his daughter who grew up in a little house and had just each other […]

The Story Teller

By on May 7, 2015

The light filled up the room The one where the walls are still the same It looked gleaming every summer noon and we loved to play our games. Tired one afternoon, when no one was  there but me, I sat on the bed and tried to look around and see The bed, the walls, the […]

The Vacant Chair

By on April 19, 2015

  I see to my left, I stare at the vacant chair I glance at the books and the pages which you cared The medicine shelves, the articles you would read I run my fingers over the covers, with your handwriting still engraved. Yes, I know we have grown, Yes, I know the walls have […]
