Followed by more issues
So Drama, if you think I'll accept defeat by you...Read More

I want to be relieved
I have already grieved
Show me Your serenity please
You swayed me next to you, being at ease
Show me Your prosperous peace

I long to be relieved

I keep on thinking of

The bird of prey
After a day 
That made me sweat.
I go to the pool
in the terrace to become wet.

Since it was 
During rainy monsoon
The clouds appeared after 
The sunny noon.

After a fun 
And satisfying swim
I gazed at the clouds above
The sky that’s dim.

I...Read More

Premium Member What Matters Most To Me
The coziness of domesticity
A shoulder to press a cheek to 
Someone to come home to
after shedding a quart of sweat
slaving away at work.

A precious quality time to kill 
with near and dear ones 
that love me, and still will,

Premium Member Dancing with the Plague
Entombed in apartments
Vanished behind our surgeon masks, eyes darting
Fidgeting for meaning
Pacing living rooms
Like Flintstone reruns trapped on ME TV

While in the cobblestone valley of downtown
Powdered ballerinas of steam
From vents in the streets
Twirling ghosts to the music of wind

Window shopping on...Read More

Product Of Greatness

So here I am standing face to face with myself
Staring deeply though the windows of my inner man
Wondering, who am I? And how did I get here?
I know some how, some years ago
My parents got together and conceived me
But I'm...Read More

To run.
To hide.
To never confide to being by my side.
When you left this safe haven of mine.

You weren't locked away.
But you have let yourself go.
I helped you through the sweat and tears.
I kept you from getting lost.

You believed in those...Read More

During morning’s gray and early tide
I go to sit down at my Father’s side
and tell him all that worries me today

Premium Member The Vaccine
I know I’ve caught a virus,

‘Til all hours of the night 
my pillows and sheets are wet;
From the slashes that I make 
the cuts, the bloody streaks;
Or maybe it’s your soul,

A pen tis' stride of mystery,
His search for truth eternity,
Lost in worlds so beyond,
No point of return did all warn'd,

Tread he bravely by this sea,
Forward he gazed to infinity,
But lonely be, was he not's,
In his pen and his the thoughts,

Corona Comes
Corona claws your deep-fear door, a wily wolf sniffing for prey,
sick-snarly behind its lamb-meek facade.
It can't believe its luck - opportunistic thief
at the door, happy to find you home.

Funereal florist fashioning a coronal of funeral flowers,
its corona of white lily-light...Read More

Indo-Pak Border

Soldiers strengthen the fence of iron wires.
Border looks like a fair face, disfigured by
smallpox. Virus is still active. Infiltrators 
crawl through the mist into India’s heart.
They are brave, but brainless.

A myriad of men waste their sweat in the
nearby militant camps,...Read More

Lines from the Midlife
I winged with the doves
in my unbounded boyhood.
Those rainbows and the contrails
still stay in the soul.
I sweated several times 
but that never lost me sleep.

Now anxieties sprout 
in the sweat.
I lose me 
in the parching forebodings.
Conditioned by the symptoms,
both heard...Read More

Fear Of Dready Night
In the dark night of lofty spring,
You saw the people in sweat,
Not cz of the darkness of the night,

figmental escapes
lifting through the fog
of clouded mind

my eyes closed
see you in the shadows
hands reaching out
towards me

I linger in the
breaking dawn
of brighter days
to escape the fury
of the storm
bearing down
around us

temporary shelter 
comes in your arms
allowing me to sigh

Wet season air smothers
In pelting sun

My body sweat

Thunder heads tower

And thunder clashes
Lightning flashes under
