In a dimly lit room,

Of smoke and ashes,

Her skin shines,

Like a childhood memory.

AND THEN IT’S YOU AND YOUR EMPTINESS AGAIN

And then it’s you and your emptiness again,

Just the two of you.

No matter how many people visit or knock the realms of your heart,

Nothing stays forever except pain,

Except loneliness.

LOST AND FOUND

My mom once told me that breaking into social arena

is always better than the other way around.

But, I’m quite a solitary and prefer to stay lost

like a sunken chest on the ocean ground.

My every dern scream and every effort

to come out these days seems a retro sound.

But, a part of me is still expecting someone

who will ask me for another round of ‘lost and found’.

OUR FRIENDSHIP WAS LIKE A LOOSELY SPUN THREAD

We used to talk but not with any expectations,

Our friendship was like a loosely spun thread.

Every time and any time my heart spent its time trying,

Trying to win your love,

It failed, and it broke.

I’M A TRIPPER

I’m a tripper,

So, warning you not to fall for me.

I can change my places in a blink,

that you can’t even see.

I keep shifting from dreams to dreams,

and mind to mind.

The world is small and I just want to stay unbind.

DO YOU FEEL LIKE NOT EXISTING FOR SOMETIME?

Do you feel like not existing for some time?

To turn invisible for some time,

To not be there to feel and break,

To not be there to fall uncontrollably,

To not be able to hear and cry.

I Am Not Afraid Anymore

I  am not afraid anymore!

Not afraid of being alone,

Not afraid of being prone!

ON A CLIFF

On a cliff,

High above the sea level,

Rested a brood,

Patching his wounds,

With the playback.

Pain

I don’t feel pain anymore,

Not like I used to before.

I hear it resonating within me,

A silent echo of the years gone by.

Home

You are home to my universe

A constellation formed from a bunch of feelings,

Right now, let’s go reverse

And feel the love, we had in the beginning.
