Festival of lights



I Ponder…

I fly...

I sulk…

I smile….

No more contemplating “The Why”

I reach out

With my voracious clasp

To the screaming spirits...

Convulsing beneath the abyss...

Trying to behold

In the Scorching Fizz….

I uproot them and scatter

Beyond the yonder skies...

And then..! What do I see...?

My Landscape so bright...

I look up and wonder…

My spirits shining high...

I Thank…

I relish...

I fathom...

I ravish…

“The Festival of lights”.

Death Wish




Thoughts detonate
In my whims...
Like a drop of light in grim

I Flutter
With a pair of wings
In the morning sun
And vanish

I sulk
In the fabric of darkness
Into which I dissolve
And vanish

I ponder
over emptiness
beneath those walls
of four dimensions

I plunder
Deep into my roots
The less it seems
I shall ever know….

I trivialize
Our tiny lives,
flame the dreams
behind those fiery screams
swallowing worlds
And spitting out steams

I wander,
In the realms of my past...
In the closet of my present...
In the epitome of my Future...
Seen, done and wasted...
Making a Death Wish.

A Tryst..with self...

Transcending from a meadow to gump,
A threshold leading to the core of a dump....
Like stepping from a cathedral into the street
Like a solitary sorrow perpetuating in fleet.....,

I beckoned my metaphysical pest.....
We navigated to re
mote tranquility ...
I saw an invitation for an eternal quest...
Plundered the mystics of her immaculate purity..

The stains in my fabric were then concealed.....
And boundlessness opened, I was retextured
Cascaded into the rivulets where weeds once were.
An evolution...a phase where reality was pictured...

I marvel at the unseen spirits which led...
To reveal the rhetoric of my self unsaid...

Alive...Am I?

The Lightening stroke…
Down on my surface
I felt a moment of sharp pleasure

I watched the blood cascade…
I did it…don’t know why…
I wanted to drown in tranquility
Detonate into darkness
Perish….
But feeble shivers down my spine
Enchanted by the pervading blood…
Let out a scream….
I gazed at the trail of immaculate red…
Going down my wrist…
Wetting my Bed
The Journey seems endless…
I am confused…
I can still see myself
Drenched…
My eyes are sinking into tears

My heartbeats retard with fear…..
My spirits float high..

Higher than the sky....
& Then....I heard...
Surprise!! Surprise!!!!
My Vicious Fate whispered..
You are not Dead…

Mistakes I Made



Darkness cascading into my mind….
Exploring the depths I could find…
Chivalrous of breaking the mould
Indifferent to the tongues hot and cold…


Every moment was a new life led…
Every drop multiplied when I bled…
Every pain felt like a rose on my bed…
Every smile mocked at the alive and dead….

I sulk in the snippets of you and me…
The face of time we scorned with glee...
The refinement I was compelled to see…
Our parting forlorn, when you had to flee

I miss you indeed,”The Mistakes I made”.
The happiness you gave, thou shalt never fade…..
