Counting The Steps

When saline drowns the lips, 

my words tremble. 



Almost I stumble upon 

the fish house spilling the vertebrates. 



I had given them, the name 

to the swirling limbless thoughts. 



One by one they come on the edge 

and blow the ashes, towards me. 



You always dream of a procession 

of dead bodies under the…

Empathy With Tattered Cape

Weep every don. 

All the translations were fake. 



The yellow peaks do not burn the 

sky, now at sunrise. 



I am forgetting myself― 

in the gathering of my foes. 



The pilgrim's path is now dirty. 

You cannot transcend the― 



dead remains of ancestry. In 

the hutment, that was the end of…

Demanding Answers After The Chemical Attacks In Damascus

I was not afraid of the clock, ticking, 

dividing your attention. A guarded 

withdrawl of the statement, had 

brought a comic relief to the distraught 

vicitims. 



Caving on guns, the 

mustard cloud could wipe out 

the entire generation. 



The tender bodies 

wrapped up in white cloaks, 

ready to be sent…

Unhurting

Unshackled, the pallor moon 

was lying still, in a white― 

shroud of clouds, only face 

visible, staring― 

down languidly. 



I have come afar, 

from the whispering dark, 

to annul my existence. 



Your hands tremble, 

carrying your name. The 

magic of unsaid― 

poems,…

Ancient Echoes

Art of dying 

comes, after 

you listen to the siren song. 



The intention 

was to kill yourself, 

non-violently, when 

moon was hiding. 



Man was changing the skyline. You can 

redraw the landscape without hurting the grass. 



Don't offer to sacrifice 

the goat on the rock, 

where the…

Stopping The Wheels

It was a free fall. 

A plot seems to thicken. 

I would never know. 



Perhaps I will not explain, 

how the test tube baby 

slapped the sky. 



The fun of unknowing 

the secret of 

a cold-blooded murder. 



Suddenly the streetlamp 

goes off. Night cracks 

open to release the…

Rehabilitation

Trying to bring the change 

with bleeding silver. 



As it is/was, this world. 

You may not agree to it. 



The release of tension 

from the cupped eyes? Will not 

alter the secret deal. 



There at the hemline, 

bodies were scattered, slain 

after the trespass. 



The royal coin,…

Endless Yearning

The thirst will know, 

the river was there. 

To lie on the grass was ultimate. 



It was not the green, 

it was not the blue, 

but desire had the keyhole to look 

at the fine sands, 

where you stand to find the 

elixir of life. 



A crackling of joint, awakens 

you. You will not wait 

for the…

Of Innocence And Black Magic

The evil city? You 

become the smallest 

light. 



The lamb did not save 

the godman. I was 

praying loudly. 



It was falling apart. 

The concept, the belief 

the palace. 



Years roll by. Until 

the priest was shot down 

on the street. 



You marvel at…

A Keyhole Surgery

Sometimes, I want to write 

a folk poem, without name. 



Anonymously, you want to 

postpone the commitment 

to accept the murder 

of yourself, 

the griever. 



The towering belief― 

that there were skeletons 

on the grains, as the words 

become verses. 



A snowy virgin 

will…

I Shall Let Go

Moisture was becoming 

the strength of dry eyes; 

pounding a glacier. 



There were different stages 

of anguish under the aegis 

of moon. I am abandoning 



the night of terror. Days 

were numbered. One by 

one, they fell before the dawn. 



Time had been revengeful. 

Asking for the pound of…

Condensation

A butterfly 
in a bell jar. 
All I know, we understand 
each other. 

There was no sun 
at midnight. 
Only a blue black 
dilemma of― 

the sky, to burn 
like human combustion. 
I am ready to start 
a journey with sunbeams.

Unbroken View

Segment by segment 

the secret breaks. There was 

no song afterwards. 



A robin hops on the dirt road. 

Time was scare. 

Living water was escaping. 



Visibility has not changed. 

I walk in great agony 

without you. 



The fabric was loosing 

the color. The book will 

never be…

An Uncanny Feeling

I would let it go 

anything now. Will not accept 

any grace. 



I am moving unfazed― 

buttons apart. Let the night 

descend. 



A hired applause was not needed. 



As the gorgeous earth plays its last tune. 

I will wait in the lobby, to fail again. 

There was no repeat 

of the deciduous…

Not Water Proof

Stoned to death. 

The rooted plants had begun 

to climb the mountain. 



Very hot here. 

Difficult to breath in. 

Why lesser flamingos were landing 

on dry lake? 



They enter via back door. 

The multi-tuberculates. 

Why the man was 

running away from the orchids? 



Strange, our lineage…

Classical Entry

It takes billions of years 

for ancient light to reach us and 

rescue the trapped darkness. 



You can hunt among rocks 

in the palisades, behind 

the ramparts. 



There was an apocalypse. 



Stem cells were ready 

to repair the myelin― 

searching ancestry. 



It was a tense…

Updated

I will not elaborate, 

what I mean. 

You have to dig out the treasure. 



The puzzle was not new. 

The memorial will be 

buried in the sand. 



A bloodbath will give― 

the final touch to the 

ground, less savoury now of inhumanity. 



We celebrate the anniversary 

to forget the…

Invisible Ink

I will meet the moon 

on the terrace, 

when the dust settles on the 

lids, smothering 

the uncharted barricades. 



Life had been full of dresses 

to play the lead in 

conflicts of alliance vows. 



Like untouched goodbyes, 

you hover around the exit― 

to seek the blessings of dark. 



In the…

Holding Back

The credibility 

of an apple 

becoming an icon. 



It draws first 

blood, when you― 

were sleeping. 



It still matters: 

thinking of milt 

but sinking your ferry. 



There was no epilogue. 



A midsummer night. 

I will forget 

your name. 



Standing in…

Not Accountable

A breast bomb, 

makes a sudden lunge- 

disfiguring the landscape 

till your body was pulled out. 



Your choices were very few. 

Either you walk straight 

or become a leaf of grass. 



It will not work. A swift― 

withdrawl from the controversial 

marriage with ferocity, 



as naked as moon.…
