The Shelter

Your own shelter of erected pretentions is beautiful 

but you don’t want to come out from the cage. 

Fear of falling from the cliff, cloud and sky 

on the claws and pincers is terrific 

which could maul, lacerate and dismember you, 



You want to hide behind the arguments. 

Somebody starts knocking at your head like a woodpecker 

Why don’t you stick to a legend like…

Flame

What shall I write 

from the empty, desolate heart, 

when every word is being scraped? 



You want to clean the mess 

of a lifetime, 

yet labour brings loneliness 

and you inherit 

the depth of a problem. 



A thought which has no ending. 

A constant battle with yourself 

in the bleak winter of…

Crossing Time Zones

I became uniquely quiescent 

like a depthless indulgence, 

in shadows of conception. 

The waves after waves, 

of a restless continuity, 

swept the floors of mind. 

Anonymity of self started expanding. 



Sun burns mercilessly, 

on prayers of parched lips. 

The breadwinner beats the chest 

and the dirt of long…

A Hot Patch

All the wayward words 

mock me for inadequacy. 

I remain detached from meaning, 

emigrating to eloquence of wordless solitude. 

The hymen breaks. 

Dumb poems cry. I don’t want to be buried 

in ruins of daydreams. 



Sandstorms have a strange melancholy, holocaust. 

A legitimate uprooting of faith. 

Sometimes I feel a hot…

The Anodyne

Unmasked inside, 

we play the games of a torch 

the living legend, 

great beauty of dirty thoughts. 

A twin drama unfolds. 

the icon burns and a wealth 

of praise drowns the priest. 

Now death dance begins. 

Neither immersion nor 

the float ends the relationship. 



The hunger leaps 

to death from…

The Shooting Star

This was an obscene observation, 

seeing through one’s mind 

a terrible happening. 

The naked truth was always dangerous. 

I close the eyes of a beloved day. 

The first lover hovers over 

the trees like an invisible ghost. 



By transforming the obsession 

into the wholeness of a metaphor, 

don’t you externalize the…

Away From The Home

Non-thinking was a tremendous effort, 

I scratched the years one by one. 

Between you and me was a river, 

it has gone now. 

Are you beyond the imagination? 

My eyelids bleed, 

and there is a painful punctuation. 



Give me fireflies, 

it is too dark here. 

The future tense, 

is not relevant…

Transitional Edge

Pathways have no boundaries, 

thinker was without a thought. 

Hostile mind refuses to believe 

truth was missing from life. 

From depth to depth measurement had failed. 

God does not know his creation now. 



Foolish flesh now burns in thudding bangs 

of dry butter. I want you to touch the 

opaque eyes of eternity. In captivity…

For A Cause

Do not talk of unhealing wounds, 

talk of the weapons. 

Talk of the hands which used the arms 

and talk of the brain which pressed the trigger. 



Violence was primitive 

but the cruel eyes had a new glint, 

At night they ransacked, stamped and burned 

the relics. 



Is it the retrovirus of a new menace 

dreaming the feast of…

Muse And Sorrow

An uneasy blood cascades 

in the slender arteries 

when you, 

that I wanted to touch 

disappear into twilight of memory. 



Always a sense of bereavement. 

why do I care for you? 

Time drops like an old coin 

in the hands of a drifter. 



Take away my sleep 

I want to wake for the whole…

Archaic Humour

Something was always missing around 

one had to die daily. 

To find out, what? 

Just a slip of time, 

life was death and death was life. 



Death of a man or death of a city 

death had no other name. 



Hearing the footfalls of death 

dogs were howling around a temple 

where god was dying. 

The nation now…

Unzipped

Faded years come back with a vengeance 

Clutching your sorrows. 

And you were walking on the burning coals. 



Spirit of journey was more relevant 

than destiny. 

You lifted the burden of anecdotes, gathered 

the dusk from the sky 

and moved on towards moon. 



Tormented, abused, the motive unknown, 

hostilities were always…

For A Forgotton Story

The decline is steep and fast 

Life groans 

under the debris of charities. 



Can you trespass the designed lies? 

When the path reaches the milestone 

long arms of justice defies the boulders, 

which were ready to build a shrine. 



The mutiny was feeble 

and the poisoned arrow did not find the guilty. 



A big mouth…

Moved Earth

In unthinkable death how do you carry 

yourself? 

An intimate dialogue with death 

Fearless, undaunted. 

I admire your grit. 



One thin blade, one silken noose 

but you want to face the bullet 

straight in your heart. 

The death should come instantly, because you 

want to be witness, your head falling…

Tall Promises

I am asking 

who is calling the shots? 

The time makes noise, 

and silence brings pain. 

Years go by. 



Night of stars and moon 

develops a sonorous dream. 

All kinds of brutes and aborigines come to parade 

flaunting their arms and ammunition. 



Where they are going in veils? 

The body of truth is already…

Voyage

Clouds had refused to part. 

A fractured moon was walking in dismay 

stroking the gazing stars. 



Cornwhite belonging of ashes was 

to fire, beloved sky was enchanted 

with water ceremony 

as a sign of gratitude to earth. 



The wind decided to reverse the clock 

and navigate in trees of waxing summer 

blowing yellow crystals of…

Cup Of Darkness

You refuse to grow in a grim challenge. 

Already the witch-hunt has started. 

It was strange to step outside your body 

and don’t look at the death 

on your doorstep. 

Softly flows the dolour in God’s shining eyes. 



I have run out my thoughts 

my brain wave. 

shame to be still breathing. 

Starving, I eat the…

Orgy

After an erotic asphyxiation 

on the dirty lips of a game, 

I hear an immaculate rhyme 

like a whore in a prayer. 



A hazy patch descends on eyes. 

Night slumbers 

and day ends with a bang. 



The guests arrives with a gusto 

dreaming the end of a track. 

Grief stands on a banished spot 



My flesh, my…

Geometrical People

Children of sorrow gnaw into their thumbs. 

Nowhere to go 

nowhere to sleep. 

Something implodes in their ruined minds. 



Everyday sun comes with a dream 

in summer, when jasmine blooms. 

This year winter is going to be different. 

A tranquil hand will cover 

the sobs of wailing buds. 



Backward goes the illusion…
