The clouds say that the moon was gloomy

while they passed him by on the sky tonight

missing a dear star

that was an apple of his eye

and who broke into pieces

with a boom last night

Moon wasn’t crying but his heartbeats were uneven

he looked more pale

and his sadness started to spread in the surrounding

so all of a sudden his friends rushed

to cajole his heart

like the trained troupes

dancing and diving

and chanting the slogans of merriment

to distract him from his loss

a little star who loved moon very much

came closer and whispered in his big big ears

what if its not the same as yesterday

what if it doesn’t seem right to you

everything happens for a reason

everything is right in its own way

the moon heard these words from one ear

pondered, smiled for the cute little star

and out those words flew from the second ear

into the vast milieu

leaving a smile on the moon’s lips

a smile for all those who cared for him

but at that time a few scars appeared

on his pink pink heart

to stay there forever

This world shall pass

and all that goes on here shall pass too

the little boys of today

will become grey haired tomorrow

the flowers that adorn the garden today

will perish too

the caravans shall pass

as they ain’t meant to stay

everything that exists

and all that we see

is intoxicated with the wine of change

but a lover’s heart never changes

although the sea reaches the sands everyday

to erase the footsteps of those who part their ways

but the tides don’t touch

the impressions made on the heart

the way someone makes you feel

stays in your memory till the last sigh

while the body gets busy with the daily chores

the heart spends its days similarly

remembering the love every moment

singing the songs

and dreaming for unison

I need some space

to hang my imperfections

just a little space

besides the dresses

that someone lovingly hangs in the cupboard

a space where i can hang my flaws

where i can tuck all my glitches

to wear them proudly one by one

before going out

every other day

without any fear

without regret

knowing that after all

somewhere i have got

a space for my imperfections

Let’s be strangers again
who brush their shoulders

on a crowded street
gaze vacantly at each other

and move ahead

reading the bill boards

at the bald old guys with shocking pink sweaters

If the Brutus had stayed loyal

to the mighty Caesar

story would have been so simple

no one had lamented

for the deeds

that we now consider abysmal

who really cares? who pays attention?

when events are usual and things are normal

lucky, the Caesar

that he didn’t survive

or he had to suffer

with every sigh

the daggers of gloom, the pangs of betrayal

She kept changing

trying to make people happy

losing her true self somewhere

became a public property

There’s an image in my mind

and i have decided to paint it sometimes

though it still lies

on the canvass of visualization

Euphoric colors scattered

in the vibrant shades of bright imagination

i cherish this painting

as a sinful obsession

For a hundred times

my fingertips have felt

its dried rough texture

and heart has marveled

its exquisite gesture

i keep altering it

to balance the proportion

and sometimes i spoil it

by daft extortion

but still, it lies in me

and i have to bring it out
