Analog Love

Analog Love

“How much do I love her?” she asks. I know not what to say, for my love is not a one nor a zero it is. It is analog, not a line, let alone linear. Each person, each thing, gets not affection on a scale. I can’t plot it on a graph, to fathom it, […]

the love is always there

the love is always there

She bore you for months nine, She took the pain as you came into the world, She denied you things that you liked, for your own good, For the love was always there.   He was not there the day you were born, He wasn’t around for your successes, that he was providing for, He […]

no weekend for the heart

no weekend for the heart

Its aches work hard, for a long, 24×7.   These aches, they know no breaks, they need no off days, they can go at you, hour after hour, endlessly. Relentlessly.   Just like the heart that they belong to.   Just like the heart that they belong to, they do their job on and on […]

मुलायम

मुलायम

सर्द मुलायम सी है ये तन्हाई, सिलवटें है सुलझ रही,   सहलाता था जैसे छूना तेरा, माथे की शिकनों को हटाता हुआ,   नर्म सी थी तेरी आवाज़ भी गहरी, हैं वैसी ही ख़ामोशियाँ ये सारी,   ठहरी सी तेरी नज़र इन कन्धों पर, पिघलाता ग़म जो था लबों पर,   मुलायम था जैसे तेरा […]

The Flittering Blank

The Flittering Blank

Now it’s here, now it’s gone, the flittering blank that I so long.   Its existence is perfection, its disappearance, a promise to return.   It’s the center. I’m all around. A slight movement, and the blank fills up.   Even if they are colors gorgeous, I yearn for the blank, the blank beautiful.   […]

fly

fly

soar high with me. not beyond the moon and stars, just two inches above the ground, just two moments of you and me.   that place is safe. from your prying eye, from your own guards, from the limits you set for you.   there’s laughter innocent, it’s baseless and beautiful. there are smiles limitless. […]

Hurt

Hurt

You told me you won’t hurt me, but I hurt anyway. You told me you won’t hurt me, and I hurt every day. It must be me I should blame then, for you wouldn’t hurt me, when you said you won’t. How do we know it’s not you? For I feel the pain so. But […]
