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.

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?

FINDING THE NORTH

Photo: Milestones

To plan an escape

from the noises in my mind

Yelling for the answers

I wanted to find,

I began an expedition towards North

With a part of the compass we bought

To walk together on this magical journey

but, the road we took split into two,

And the compass broke as if it knew

That I have to walk alone,

without you.

What direction is this?

Am I going nowhere?

Or nowhere is somewhere I ought to be?

Do the paths revolve like planets?

North is not there,

 where it used to be.
