Memories undone

  A fleck of me I left behind, traces that held on to the emptiness Around the shower cubicle a strand of my hair twirled halting for a second. Faint shadows from yesterday looming over the cold barrenness  of the deserted floor. Desolate sheets clung  to the impressions on the bed that now comforted none….

The Power of Black

   Her dreaded weapon had dropped dead many Deep, deft powerful strokes, that yielded the sharpness of a knife’s edge Not once did she flinch as she went around creating drama, every single time she cast a spell of enigma The mesmerizing liquid pools shone arrogantly as the veil of her eyelashes revealed the kohl streaked dangerously along the…


The Mysterious Harbinger

The security guard forbids me  as I capture you   from where I stand, mesmerized by your unfolding enigma  You’re obliviously lurking above  a treasure trove that stands heavily guarded I tell him you belong nowhere So, click I will As he looks away Looming dark over the mighty corporate horizons Engulfing within your fluffiness, untold…

The rough sloshes of paint sometimes oozed spurts of warm love  Joy emerged rapturously once in a while peeping through vibrant tones Shades of self-doubt sprang up unceremoniously now and then Bringing with them haunted feelings of dripping melancholia At…


Let’s Feast, Shall We?

Wow!  We did get lucky with our hunt, didn’t we? I enthused, “Dinner was going to be a feast, wasn’t it?! ”    “Didn’t see this coming, did you?” I questioned Ria, as I fixed our meal.  She shook her head, licking her lips in excitement. Our aromatic meal simmered fiercely on the fire,  like the turbulent storm outside……


The Vanishing Seductress

She breezed in… …kissed my senses Tickled my reason…. …Plunged me into thoughts Weighed me down  with her ifs buts ands etcs… But alas!  Even as I reached out to fathom her And snag her in my words forever Poof!  …She vanished in thin air  As abruptly as she appeared! That’s how Inspirations act at some point….


The Closed Door
