SYMPATHY

Every ounce of an expression

on my face

tells a story untold,

written by The Creator

with depth

and dissection

of thoughts

inconceivable

to all the benighted ones,

who offer their sympathy

to please me.

MYTHS OF LOVE

Don’t call me Radha,

and yourself Krishna!

Let’s not tether each other

with these myths of love

besieged by controversies

demanding existential proofs

unavailable to mankind.

Remember, 

Lighthearted souls

never weigh you down.

GAME

Fortress

Chances to win

Chances to lose

Folded hands

Blinding moves

Marching pawns, to and fro

Bishops cross path, rooks seldom know

Knights in armor

battled their bate

King’s in check

What’s Queens Fate?

BLUE

You painted me blue

You called me a star

You took me places

farther than far.

Should I rejoice while floating in this space of nothingness?

Should I mourn your breathlessness?

INTENTIONS

So numb I’ve become;

I read your words to feel my feelings,

I seek your love to give’em meaning.

You ask me to pour myself a glass of inspiration

but

do you know that it comes from you?

Your good intentions usurp all my contentions

and though I lose this case,

I still have your smile

on my face.
