For Him.


I hope you have reached safe n sound
And parked yourself on happier grounds

I write to you from a clueless town
I have no idea why I frown

Probably because I am missing you
Perhaps you should have left a residue

Of your singing heart and your dancing soul
Your skin, your pores or your magic moles

To help me survive this boring week
Without the much-needed dose of mischief

I wonder why I did not keep
A part of you, that would help me sleep

Like your arm, your palm, your lips, your tongue
Your chest, your breath, or just one of your lungs

But I shall try and not dissect
the anatomy of the man you make

'Cause the man you make is a rare find
The whole of you makes one of a kind!

Of course, if you were born on the elephant's back, you would quickly learn to see the lie of the land.

How many faces lie hidden, waiting for the time when curious eyes will find them in their secret places.

In the heart of a leaf or the bark of a tree.
In the frozen pond or the turning sea.
In the twist of a chair or the look of a key
or the shriveled skin of an elephant's knee.

-Irwin Demer.
This piece was lying hidden in the book  'The Art of Looking Sideways', waiting for the time when my curious eyes would find it!

On comfort.

But I don't want comfort. I want poetry. I want danger. I want freedom. I want goodness. I want sin.

On Luck.

Luck, they say, has a peculiar habit of favoring those who don't depend on it.

On Strength

Why do people say “grow some balls”? Balls are weak and sensitive. If you wanna be tough, grow a vagina. Those things can take a pounding.

Happy Ending?

There are no happy endings.
Endings are the saddest part,
So just give me a happy middle
And a very happy start.
