Living In Wax Palace

Absolutely pure, 

I would not believe, until 

a dark spot 

appears on your cheek. 



The petals now split 

into rays, as in marigold 

dividing the sun― 

between the eyes. 



I look through the stains 

now, wearing the blanket 

of moon, mottled but silvery cool. 

I do not mind to…

Give Me Something

As if walking― 

in cyberspace, searching 

for you. 



I want to ask you 

to give back my tears― 

which were shed, 

on murder beach. 



What renunciation― 

you need, living in the shell 

of a mollusk? 



You don't want to― 

be found. O destiny, goddess 

of ciphers― tell…

The Prodigal Son

Priest or thinker, 

you wanted a moral engagement. 



Moon shined, 

You were waiting for a 

prophet or saint. 



It was pointless, 

boat will not arrive. Standing 

on beach, your journey ends here. 



The sun was too hot. The 

umbrella conceals the face 

of a motivator. Nobody wants 

to touch…

September Woes

You pick up a homeless 

word and weave 

into a poem. 



Suddenly it becomes 

a dove, fluttering 

in my heart. 



I love them most, 

the flying pods, carrying 

unknown seeds. 



White and red 

I send you my summer 

blues today. 



The cottony cheeks 

I blow…

Black Currants

You do not want to reach― 

where the journey ends. 



Can you keep this secret 

how do I harm myself in ecstasy? 

Your shadow walks― 

on the lake solemnly. 



I want to talk of― 

the broken musicality of black 

veils. Do we need to touch 

the tulips under the moon? 



Big toes digging in…

Rehearsals

A lunatic has found 

a touchstone, to know― 

your nights to burn. 



Gazing in still waters 

you forget, to become complicit, 

with the incoming waves. 



Can you shout at me 

without an uproar, sans words, 

in the blind alley? 



How will you remain 

bounded to your consents, 

unheard in…

For Whom The End Waits?

Saturday. 

Night cries again. 



Can I call you midnight 

to kill the moon― 

and celebrate the dark? 



A book and sitting on the 

birthmark of a fig tree's thigh 

in the temple of a failed god, 

I haul up the stains and blues. 



Dirty linens. You would 

faint in the stale smell of…

Punishing Myself

My personal agony, 

very precious to me. 



I was carrying you 

on the paint brush, on crayon. 



Canvas was 

empty after you left. No oil 

painting of curved lips and digitals. 



You hang a man eater― 

panther, after lynching. 

Whole length suspended from a tree. 

So beautiful, as a star…

Regrouping

My truth was very brief, 

sitting at a long distance. 

You were plucking words 

at my lips. 



The toxic path, I knew 

the destiny. Not afraid to 

catch the saboteurs. 



Paper tigers bring 

the spurious hemlock. You 

drink from the eyes of bystanders. 



Like the dropped 

hot coal, you look…

Not Harming You

Another tear rolled down, on time's cheek. 



It was not meant to be 

like this. Undaunted, 

you open the fire towards the moon. 



In your madness― 

there was a discipline. 

A psychological withdrawal― 



from the nesting niche. 

Believe me― it was not a fake, 

I will not reclaim my gifts. 



Lesser known…

The Thrill―the Game

Forget me― 

not the blood truths. 



I was reading your thoughts 

from the deep furrows 

of your forehead. 



To follow the peace 

I will not purchase the 

eternal bites. 



Poverty was the bliss, 

when you were not there. 

Ripped nodes were sucking― 



the lame legs. I…

Rising From The Ashes

The rise, the fall 

of twin blasts. Were 

you going to repeal the 

writ of divine code? 



With spring in your arms, 

will you throw the dice 

to win the virgin― 

ring of Mars? 



Peace makers were at large 

for the crown. Who― 

else would hold black― 

the apocalypse, along…

Recuperating

Only the bones will 

tell, how tall you were 

without flesh. 



This was my bane. 

All night I walked towards 

the moon to locate you. 



Sucking sound does 

not die. I wanted to reach 

unannounced near the fire. 



This was pathological. 

There was no prophecy. 

Panic makes you a…

Dancing On Flames

I will retrieve your 

consecrated shrine of 

innocence. 



You will kneel 

eating grass. The great 

shift towards Agni starts. 



It burns the stigma, 

the sins. Whitens your 

dirty teeth. 



What you have done 

to me O queen of hoods, 

hood of queens? 



The kernels were…

Some Sequelae

The bald eagle's pain. 

Man-made monument 

of cruelty. Summer was drawing 

near. The black noon. 

Waiting to bring to life, 

sleeping cacti. 



You have lost your 

home. In sand storms. So 

you will find shade under 

the long tresses. 



And eyebrows were arched 

skywards. You purse…

Coming Full Circle

This was the surrealistic 

nightmare. 



Omitting the guilt 

I will paint a nude. 



It was not kind of 

pink. Cosy with words― 

you will polish the legend, 

misspell the murder. 



Transfixed I enter 

the still life. You come 

out with bound hands 

to say…

With No Mistake

There was some pain 

in your thick voice. 

You had gone too far. 



Hunted like 

a deer, for an ecstatic vision 

I was very angry with me. 



Learning deep, back 

to back, you were aware of 

the dogma. It was a witch. 



Chasing you on reverse 

feet. One kiss less― 

you become a…

Alone In Myself

The scaffolding falls. 

The end and means 

become one. There was― 

no other second moon. 



The prosthetic hand 

feels your face. Blind eyes 

hear your lips and a severed 

leg walks me near you. 



Under the tongue you 

hide a word. I will never know 

what. The armless sun 

steals away my golden…

Moon Was Not Rising

Ask the destroyer 

of the day, why did you 

cross my path― when the 

sun was setting? 



A subdued sexuality was ready 

to get the answer― 

from the ultimate punishment. 



Meanwhile I search 

the ruins of old empire for salt seepage. 

Freedom from bread and roof 

was still far away. 



The…

Scuttling

Enfant terrible. 

I disown myself, 

and try to follow my 

occult intution. 



Crossing the magnetic 

field, I become neutral. 

You will have to 

collect my tears. 



There will be no anniversary 

of the funeral, 

I will die imperfectly. 



Failed to kiss the uninviting 

throat…
