Buoyancy

I punish myself daily 

to deny a god. 

Do angels cry? 

Pinning hope in a crisis to extract 

the truth from a dying moon? 

A ghost walks on the 

wall to enter the alphabets 

of living deads. 

Ambrosia― was not 

sufficient to resuscitate 

a bleeding cross. 

I am charting my life 

for you…

The Great Divide

Cut the masks 

and you will find a river of sorrow 

in the unblinking eyes. 



The mud tears had smeared 

the face. 



Chimera? The fire breathing 

will start a new traction to break 

the silent protest of lying lambs. 



Impertinence? 

For whom you have come to 

offer the chador at the…

After The Chemo

You said this summer, 

hold me tight, 

when hanging lights― 

go out. 



I will heal your moon, 

your cryptobiosis 

of seeds― 



at dawn, when you wake up 

before the stars leave. 



It would not be a day of mourning. 



The quinces, japonica 

irises were deeply…

Eyes Like Flints

A streak of sin, 

just as culpable, 

gives back my pains. 

A half-finished poem 

jolts me out of my vision. 

Someone drops the moon― 

and becomes evident in mist. 

A profile floats. I 

imagine the spreading smile. 

I want to understand myself. 

The colors blend. Have 

you read Rilke? You will…

Something Different

Transcribing my emptiness, 

like emulating an ape― 

to study the anatomy― 

of a scar. 



There was a brutal assult. 

Uninterpretable was the ink, 

like the blood spilled 

after the vein collapsed. 



An egg within an egg 

would change the gender 

of a name. A different money 

was needed to…

Vox Humana

The family pride 

goes for the jugular. The rotational 

push, dooms the vessel. I 

come out in black waters. Night 

is pitch-dark. 



Riding the tiger, now you 

want to come down. There was 

no anonymous call to 

remember the wits. A buried 

myth is ready to romance. 



My country bleeds in…

Retroaction

Celebrating the summer. 

Planting a wet kiss on― 

the hiding moon. 

Dousing the flames, 

you come in crosshairs 

of a mob. 

You will light 

your own candle now, in― 

pitch-dark inside. 

Impoverished. Always 

poor to buy your happiness. 

Like Paleolithic stab, you stay 

unmoved, exposed…

Accepting Defeat

Where was the empirical 

evidence, that you don't exist? 

The vibes were becoming 

stronger. 



The comb has fallen, and 

honeybee feels lése-majeste'. 

Where the dots end, a 

new line starts. 



Adrift. The resistance is gone. 

Reflecting on the added 

infidelity. You cannot pay homage 

to…

Reply To Fear

This country divides us. 

Only cameos were 

displayed. 



The ache of the holy river 

was your body which 

becomes a canoe. 



The snow-clad peaks 

would smash 

the hikers. 



Opinions differ, 

when the tornado strikes. 

You wanted to build a new house. 



The black…

Weird Enigma

You have to spell it out. 

Where the sun sets 

in shifting sands? 

Picking up the heart rocks― 

I was learning to 

walk away from undying. 

Who would confuse the 

infinite falls. There was no conclusion. 

Again you come howling, 

waiting for the snowmelt from 

the face. 

The lips become the…

My Truce

Without trying to become 

an avenger, 

you were trying to find the― 

joy of primitive faith. 



The dignity of terror has 

to be modified. 

You were now afraid of― 

yourself in the crowd. 



This thing had a dark tone, when 

you cross the street. 

Underneath, the seed vessels of 

past pain, were…

Homage To Flesh

Far beyond the light years, 

I will seek the darkness― 

where the hope was born, 

and night had the faith. 



The trust not betyrayed, become 

meniscus, when the crowds 

start coming. Dog bitten you scowl. 

A half-written poem was ripped away. 



An inside truth comes too close 

to flames. Something…

Unborn Desires

When I make a heap 

of all my killer pains, 

rains come. 

A half-moon casts 

a spell. Hope used to 

have many colors. 

A black magic 

ruffles the feathers, casually. 

Peacock forgets to dance. 

Rocks. Like rare earths. 

Difficult to separate you 

from me. The call of the…

Tenacity

It was a breech birth, 

scuttling the forecast, 

under water search. 

Sad night. 



The sand fills your 

pockets. You start 

licking the salt 

jettisoned by violent waves. 



Don't focus your mind. 

D-Day is drawing near. 

No deference to sun. 

Unfurl all the sails and ride the…

Watercolors

It was a mixed affair 

of love and hate. 

You are in deep water 

to engage in a dialogue. 



Almost farce was the 

black ice. Animalism was the― 

same. It was murder 

in one form or the other. 



The landscape would be 

remembered for illicit violence. 

The virgin sea hides the remains 

of midair…

I Will Not Agree

This was the first 

evidence of altered genes. 

Keeping you in abeyance, the 

barbs fly from lips to lips. 

It is pitch dark. 

Reaching the tortuous path of climb, 

unabashedly you want to say 

it is over. 

At the edge of hurts. 

What was your pride? Very 

private, very distant, thinking 

to and fro,…

Stationary Waves

Becoming, 

antinormal was not a― 

big task, like discovering a new mineral. 



It was upside down 

a binary star. 

Mother and son of morning. 



From your absence, 

I pick up a poem 

and milk the words. 



Unlike the purple poesy, 

you write, 

when the pith becomes the…

Sonorous Tones

To skim the sky 

like swifts, 

when you move away 

from yourself. 



Holding a four-leaf clover, 

night drapes the moon, 

taking a lion's share of light 

on its wings. 



Your full lips defeat 

the kisses of incense. I 

will come again to 

learn Ars poetica. 



The fake…

Nobody Will Die

Knowing the beginning 

and the end, 

you stand in water. 

Transparency should 

come first, waiting 

for your time. 

A blind pursuit for a brilliant moment, 

to break the black rock. 

The bloodstained eyes 

tell the opacity of eternal lies. 

Can you melt the darkness? 

The holy edge was…
