Silences



Sometimes I wonder how silence can vary so much in pitch and tone. Some silences are soothing and soft..some  chaotic, while others are filled with a happy chatter. The silence within me today holds a high-pitched scream at its heart.

Reminds me of Ghalib 's words:

"जब की तुझ बिन नहीं कोई मौजूद
फिर ये हंगामा ऐ खुदा क्या है
दिल ए नादां तुझे हुआ क्या है..."

Pedestals



The problem with pedestals is that people start to look down on you..and eventually, invariably they fall off them. And I've put far too many people on pedestals all my life.

Jigsaw Puzzle



I tried to fit in all my life
Forgetting, that I am not
Piece of a jigsaw puzzle

Coronavirus Diaries



We got so caught up
In surviving, day and night
We forgot to actually live

Beautiful Me


Someday when I am nomore 
Someone, somewhere
Will take the time to learn
The "me" that I was
My truths, my defeats
My demons, My dreams
What tried to destroy me..
And what made me a fighter
What made me connect
And what made me love. 
And they will tell the world
What a beautiful story I was...

Black or White



Sometimes
We need to take
All those shades of grey
And make them
Black or white
To define a limit
And be absolute

Forgotten Bookmarks


All the words
You once whispered
Lovingly, softly
Still reside in my heart
As forgotten bookmarks
Of a story called "Us" 
That once was
Yet no longer exists

Sunset In My Eyes


I waited an eternity for you
And to you devoted all my sunrise
But you arrived, seeking me so late
When all I have is sunset in my eyes
