Unceremoniously

Your algorithm 
has failed. 
There were colossal mistakes. 

It brings back 
the memories of 
counting on the fingers. 

A moon, a river 
and a night, had 
fallen in love for ever. 

Why not a langur 
should now be 
declared a person?

Captive Of Conscience

You shut to it― 

the window, on watching 

a row of walking stones 

without feet. 



Pouting, 

scowling― 

in a mile of tears. 



(A pink lotus spills 

the colors on water) 



Let me talk 

to my wilderness. The 

script was incomplete 

in shadows of…

The Dialogue Continues

My logic 

was not a part of belief. 



The answer you proffered is 

not, what it was 

supposed to be. 



The question sits like a 

butterfly on my chest. 



It was a sham exercise 

to wipe out the dirt from the eyes. 



Life, death and the 

unknowing are the failures 

of…

After The First Moon

Reigniting blood moon, 

I have come to 

seek my abdication. 



After a long haul of 

dark clouds, I come face to 

face with my failures. 



My experiments with faith 

and disbeliefs did not help 

to understand the mysterious self. 



Now the significant hurts have 

become my strength,…

Inauthentically?

Sperms and legacy. 

You scream for the justice 

for the space between words 

and sentences. 



I don't want to be separated 

from my half-eaten moon. 



Without a dance 

your anklets have broken into songs. 



Someone commands me― 

to sacrifice my pen. 



Hallucinatory- be seduced for the sake of…

Pardon My Darkness

You always said, violence 

was in you. Everything was dying 

around. 



There was a tacit understanding― 

enacted, 

interceding with― 

a lasso. The baked silence 

always stares at you. 



I have no praise, 

no condemnation for anyone. 



Inevitably you suck the moon, 

your…

No Time For Mourning

Without shadow 

an agony, slits me open. 

As when I bleed. 

I write a poem. 



It hurts, 

when you touch the words, 

the lines, the paragraph― 

the page. 



From teaching 

to be a learner― 

a long odyssey from― 

innocence to scream. 



My namesake, my…

Bioluminescence

Like a lingering doubt, 

the moon stood on the maple tree― 

for a relationship. 



For my sake don't take a 

downside, my liberalism 

will suffer. 



Killed in your own house 

by lightning, have you 

ever heard of self-immolation? 



Let's make it simple. 

Take it from the giver, 

what he…

To Man

The city was going to 
fall. An earthquake? 
A flood? No it is war. 

Money making and 
crime. Two things are 
left in my coffer. 

Man made had 
become better thing than 
god made. 

Mars sends another 
image, of this side― 
of the man's earth.

Gleanings

Autumn moon― 

in full grace. I have 

come out to say hello. 







Everything was in 

order. A stunned silence. 

The cuckoo gives a long call. 







Long ago, such 

was the night. I 

wrote my first poem. 







My innocence, 

intact― I still…

Et Tu?

Like half-brother 

moon was following me. 

Tonight the dethroning commences 

on the murderous hills 

of faith. 



You grab a snowcloud 

to refuse what you would be. 

The animal that lives 

in you has become silvery haired. 

There was a terror of being isolated. 



Earth was dying in me. 

A…

Reflections

You were not listening, 

when I said― 

" After offering my head, 

I will go into deep sleep " 



Coyotes were gathering. The 

prairie was on fire. Under 

the feet, the smoke was bursting. 

You had started eating your toes. 



Carrying the burden of unsavory― 

reputation, the books were not 

telling that time has…

The Jealous War

It was very edifying. 



When you shut the mouth of 

the oppressed― 

the mass grave speaks. 



The widow was still mourning, 

after the causality of my belief, 

my psyche, my rights. 



You don't make me, then 

how can you break? What 

was the height of fall, 

will you let me know? 



The…

Mode Of Dying

Brutal. Another lover 

too. Four-letter words kill. 

A self deception begins. 

You shut up in yourself. 



From meaningless trivia you 

want to extract peace. 



The leather was becoming feminist. 



You can eat your partner 

if conflict increases. 



Will you like to read Camus 

again? Especially- The Myth…

Scissor Hold

I don't want any applause. 

Think. think on 

what I have to say. 



The morgue is full. Still 

the bodies were arriving, of 

all the dead innocents. 



The son, daughter, mother and 

father and grands. 

What rituals you want to do― 



to honour the departed, or 

praise the killers? 

The rigged…

After The Stampede

The dusk panics. 

Molten ash stings, bearing 

you down. Your enemy had penetrated 

very deep. 



Your pride shrinks. 

Infinite pains from moonlit streets 

climb up the palm trees 

to count the dead. 



You can not arbitrate in disputes 

of wind and flags. 



The night rolls down on…

Una Corda

This was not physical. 

Which part of your psyche, 

I would touch? 



Sometimes you swing 

without a rope. A chasm 

appears, then vanishes. 



Blindfolded you open 

a death door to see the fall. 

The deep pain bifurcates. 



The distance was increasing 

between clouds. A crack 

of light burns…

Eyesores

A wreath of skulls 

you want to hang on the wall. 



I don't want to 

lose the skin. 

The land was bleeding. 



Mars mission. A very 

lonely flight, pulls me down. 



Do you have a 

pearl knife? 

Small talisman, you used to wear 

when you were a child 

to ward off the evil…

Voices In Dark

I should not have been 

there, where I am now. 

The destiny was unscrupulously quiet. 



Time goes in suspension 

when I don't see you in me. 



Flaunting the assets 

of dwarf generation, you 

kill the galaxy of stars brazenly. 



Paraplegia. You break 

the eggs in air to touch the placentae. 



Twirled. I…

Lynx-Eyed

The long tentacles return 

to gather you, 

in clawless loops. 



What do you see in the godless 

domain of winged 

colts? 



The colossus had 

glaring flaws. Binary 

curse falls like a barrel-bomb. 



I remained oblivious 

of the uncorrupted dawn, 

rising from the ruins of fallen…
