Once upon a time.

For Challenge Day 16

Once upon a time
I wrote about you me and love
The tormented souls
The rejected heart

The corporeal flowers
The late night talks
The fervour
The coffee
And the drama

These days I don't write about love
But of failed lovers
Like you and me
And the dim blue light
Under which we entwined
Like lost birds
Forever seeking the unknown
Amidst the known.

Halfway Done

For Challenge Day 15

When I told him I loved him once
He shrunk
As if my love would destroy his sanctity
He doesn't talk to me much these days
Fearing if he falls for me.

He asked why didn't I tell him then
He could have tried to love me in return
He just didn't understand
Love was lost anyways
Only the lover withstand.

I am running late these days..lagging behind. May be it's just the mood or the tricky words which sometimes leave me.

A Candle Light Dinner.

For Challenge day 14

"Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?"
...Mary Oliver

A candle light dinner

An outcome of a left over party
For some stayed behind
Words were thrown as if they were bubbles
Pricked and nothing
Cigarette ashes lay mercilessly on the floor
Rings of smoke absently stare
A few empty beer cans
Some half filled scotch glasses
Cubes of ice wait patiently to melt
Bits of food were thrown to stray dogs
As if it was an example of life less simplified.

For Challenge Day 13

'You always write about blue,
Blue flowers, blue lights, Blue vase
Even our curtains are blue',
He complained

I just smiled

For I knew
Blue is the vastness
Blue is the depth
Blue is the light reflected
on the sea
Blue mesmerizes
Blue synchronizes
Blue is you
Blue is me.

I am really running slow. The internet not working. So all my posts are a day late.
Anyways enjoy.

For Challenge Day 12

The wailing moon wails
The night demands
The body desires
The mind resides elsewhere
A longing prevails
The wolf in him awakes
And she eagerly waits
For the morn to arrive.

Enjoy the poem.


For Challenge Day 11.

They found me diabolic
And said evil resided in me
I smiled and said
Isn't other side of God is evil.

I didn't follow the prompt..though our newspaper was flooded with the news of Malala and Kailash Satyarthi but somehow didn't feel like writing for the prompt. I have written on child issues before ..some are posted in the blog and some printed. This time I share a poem on slightly different note. Enjoy.

If you call me mad

For Challenge Day 10

Call me mad if you want to
For I don't belong to the
world of yours
And yes I saw the shrink twice
in my life
Once when I forgot the world
And then  when you forgot me.

I keep counting stars and moons
The lunar always has an effect on me
And scribbler in me scribbles on
For that is my destiny

Loved I have many a times
Sometimes it is the road side dog
Sometimes a human like me
And yes I saw the shrink twice
Once when I forgot the world
And then when you forgot me.

Enjoy the madness.
