This moment, out of all the day’s ruckus Hour, minute, second or millisecond; Frozen in time – firm and poignant Like the distant watch tower – Assuring, comforting; And yet, ridiculously fluctuating Like the wind raging against your face- (Feel your wings yet?)

Night, some music, some shimmering lights, Wind, and the sea, and us – just us; In this void, chaotic vacuum, Words you whisper, Heard by my soul – over the vast ether; And I wonder gazing over these ‘long-distance-troubled’ hapless romantics, How distance never bothered us, I yearn for you and you “wave” back – […]Read More Lunatic Love..!

The coffee in your veins, That situation galloping out of reins, The startling silence in your truth, That stalking face beneath the hood, Chills creeping up your spine at nightfall, You gotta get your masks down- when the spectre calls; Break the bonds, count your blessings, sins, addled beliefs and ambitions bereft, Count them up […]Read More A Foggy Attempt..!
