She stepped into her small kitchen, which seemed otherworldly in the early winter hours. Sunlight pooled in through the window, its slant rays illuminating the dust particles that waltzed in the air. The refrigerator hummed in the quiet and the birds sang their hearts as the sun warmed their bodies. … Continue Reading
Colours of Love: Black
They say life goes on
People mourn, people forget
But that’s not for everyone, is it?
For some, it is too much to bear
Like her parents
Who lost their only child
All this time, she was their everything
But now, she’s gone, leaving them with nothing
Like her … Continue Reading
Spring, the meat between your McDonald’s burger, the conversation after a fight, the jam in jim-jams, the glances between painful sobs laced with the slightest giggles over the absurdity of it all, the season between winter and summer.
Spring follows cold, harsh winter. When you’re left alone, all you … Continue Reading
Colours of Love: Blue
Love for me will always be blue,
Tinged with sadness,
It’s a bittersweet hue.
Blue for the sky that Icarus fell through,
Trying to soar for freedom,
Too close to the Sun he flew.
Blue for the loss Daedalus felt,
When he beheld his boy,
Suffering the curse he was … Continue Reading
Colours of Love: Autumn
Weary of summers past and wary of the winter to come – Autumn is a gaunt, worn veteran, hunched over on public benches. He sits with pursed lips, silently mouthing the ending of every story that begins now. As the harsh, dry wind claws the leaves off the trees, the … Continue Reading
Colours of Love: Lilac

Wait for the colours to change
To what reminds me of the years gone by,
You, me, and the lavender haze.
The sky is pink
The breeze cool
Even on a cold winter night
Or scorching mid-summer June.
I’d hate for … Continue Reading
Colours of Love: Pink
You carved little hearts out of the cement,
and I laid down the foundation of the road.
We paved the path together, and now you repent
for creating with me, your house and my humble abode.
Our hearts, which were once whole, are now empty with agony,
I forwent … Continue Reading
Seasons Of Love – Monsoon
Mi amor, come as abundant as rain,
Pervade my senses, render me restless,
Hold me in your spell. Do you see me swell
Akin to columns of wood, whose fortune you tell?
Beckon me from the shade, whence you dwell –
Illuminate every creature under your spell.
There’s no … Continue Reading
Colours of Love: Red
I arrive in her cheeks,
his hands in those hair,
that kajra hanging like it’s always belonged there
the arms hugging from behind, the lips on that neck.
There’s snow outside yet warmth in that home felt infinite
Dancing, yet again, to that flop song
With that twinkle unexplained, those … Continue Reading
