Erected In My Pain

Life gives you a sudden shock, 

with ugly scars of mutilated truth. 

Arriving becomes a failure, 

a tilted faith. 

Your eyes were blank but 

you were seeing through 

your hundred wounds, 

spinning in the import. 



Continuity of lies starts again. 

From post to post 

a sting was preoccupied, 

fed on…

On Burning Coals

Loneliness of non-being and, 

reality, fill up the vessel. 

I search for the eloquence while, 

emptiness will be my forte. 

Countless words are crossing 

like a promise in milk-white days 

I gather sunlight through grass leaves. 



Life had been full of shadows, 

lengthening, penetrating 

the tapestry of love. 

The…

It Is Too Dark

Forgetting the ultimate name 

of clean truth 

the essence of time latched on to the dangerous arguments. 

Something went wrong. 

I watched the foot crumbling, 

everything was moving towards dark.



I wiped the magnifying glass 

to witness the hunger 

of everyday life, 

blue veins of the shriveled legs. 

Sinking…

Burnt Taste

A cyan globe 

rolling in the black sky. 

I was visualizing 

an earthset 

on the horizon. 



Lianas 

threw a noose 

around my neck. 

Did I 

start the fires? 



My dissent 

was of any relevance? 

Who was standing 

on the moon? 



Self-centered…

Separated Our Lives

Shadows were talking, 

we arrived nowhere. 

Text was smaller than life. 

Millennium hung on our eyes, 

rattling the long distance calls. 

Our house was ruined, 

multiple windows 

turned into walls and poems died. 



Your face has become an empty vase. 

Dismembered cast off 

in the corner of the…

Untitled Monument

Beyond the self, 

is the freedom, unchained dawn, 

I am in a crowd of voices. 

Lifted by songs, 

a bruised truth becomes a rose. 

Choice was limited, 

I desired silence, middle path in night, 

under the lunar ecstasy. 



Nowhere to go 

I searched for tranquility, peace and light. 

Failing…

Historical Grief

A perpetual war between 

frame and content feeds 

the fire! 

I step outside the house of thoughts. 

The death begins the counting and 

jasmines start crying. 

I hear the over-worn desert 

blowing the sand. 

A raw stone throws up a sculpture. 



Midnight knocks on the door were loud. 

Rain was banging, moonlight…

Tracks Were Obliterated

The spirit of hollow ideal 

was not the thing,

I remained inconsolable.

Truth demanded endless pursuit.

The helplessness of the beaten days

was unfit for the night of terror.

The false paradigm could not ignite the flame.

The shadows collapsed

and thoughts walked in dark

into the trap.

Perfect splash of impulsive drive,

and movement of matter

created hallucinations.

and the conduct of freezing moments

had no parallel.…

Holds Me Green

The cult 

catches you 

like a black hole. 



You cannot scale the walls - 

slide back 

in a crucible. 



Like fried insects 

crisp and dry. 

Witch-hunt starts. 



Sky was blue 

in eyes, 

winds will divide the space. 



Do you need a mediator 

to read…

Writing Its Diktat

Beyond the thoughts, 

nothing I mourned, 

nameless death was writing its diktat. 

The dirty epithets were accepted for collage. 

Simply a prayer was needed 

for a childless truth. 

Rudimentary terms owned 

a beautiful diction. 



The ultimate pain makes you dumb. 

Words lose the vision, you walk in a hollow…

Humming Night

The enlightment drops words, things 

I am at peace with the light, 

the sand, the river. 

The thought of non-being is subtle, 

touches a cord. 

Hours slip, silicon hardens. 

Grains of truth move towards essence. 



The thought of emptiness 

was very powerful 

I sit by myself, swallow a stunned voice. 

My hands…

Wet Landscape

A saddened rain dropp 

strikes me at the face. 

When town is burning, 

its dignity confronts me with force. 

A human clone rises 

like a smoke from the ruins 

of our nerves. 

Why the love has evaporated 

from our hearts? 



In new spread of palaces, 

upside down roots grow with regrets. 

The dark…

A Touch Of Class

The tree, the sky, the moon, of 

summer prick the eyes. 

We suffer majestically. 

The aberrations will 

now rule the city. 

Incorruptible winds 

languished in crooked lanes. 

A pale hand will paint the unlatched doors. 



When stars meditate in unison, 

moon upcurves. 

The blue becomes dark, 

my…

The Terrible

This terracotta urn 

contains the ashes 

of an earth-baked dream. 

You worship the setting sun, 

rape of dawn will continue. 



Intravenous entry of hope 

had failed. 

Outside the window 

crowd of heirlooms, falling like stars. 

Thoughts come and go, we hunted opportunities in vain. 



Tonight I will dropp the…

My Poems Wept

I had to let them stay. 

My anguish & anxiety. 

Denuding me, filling me with hymns of pain. 

The blank days drifted in slow motion. 

I tried to sing, 

imitating the cuckoo on the tree, 

to shake off the clouds from the eyes. 



Everyday the pain was new, 

dreams were old 

in the eternal churning. 

Grizzled…

Heart Unsnaps

You gave me a name without asking. 

History of my pain 

did not need any label. 

I recalled only 

the blooms of bougainvillea, 

not the heat which gave them color. 

My burned lips 

remembered only the dew 

and rear view of life. 



The total otherness of the moon and stars 

did not heal the…

Face Of Truth

It hurts, the abstract isolation of life 

emptying of self. 

The infection 

of water in the sun. 

A nameless pain annihilates 

the ascending desires. 

I want no more 

traffic of dreams. 

Only discovery of Being. 



Where the city had gone from the mirror 

of my poems? 

Streets had the…

The Air Was Scented

The tryst with path, 

was full of voices of silence, 

confronting its wrath & revenge. 

Nothing was new, soft matter divided the winds, 

arithmetic of energy, 

faced up to its agony of spent life. 



Decently artful, 

you manipulated the clouds, its music, 

the bluebells went into trance. 

The shower…

Insult The Death

Blows had blackened the mist, 

fear of crossing the road, dented the veil. 

‘Ism’ versus the boundary had a long rhetoric. 

I was struggling with scars of learning. 

Pain unwrapped the gift of rhythm with confession 

bitten by skorpios, blue and cold. 



Finding the cause does not solve the rigidity. 

Entering my own genome, increases the panic…

Benediction

How sad you had been 

without wholeness for the, 

price of having broken shoulders? 

The people were shedding their skins 

to wear new masks. 

I was haunted in my sleep. 

Sun was not rising. 



House to house from face to face, 

death makes a pause. 

Time sits for a while, when 

we mourn in…
