Confessions of the heart broken...

Is it time yet?

No. Wait.

Wait, for I have 

Still to hold your hand.


To feel the warmth,

To connect to

My soul again.

My soul seethes

With desire.


A desire, so

Strong.  To

Hold you close.

To smell the

Fragrance of your


 To touch the skin

Of your face.

Your face, I cant

Get enough of it.

Those eyes burn my

Already parched desire.


A desire, so

Strong. To kiss you.

To quench my parched



Wait. There is time yet!

Isn’t there? To sit

Close to you. To sit and stare

To hear you. To hold your

Hand in mine. Words bundle up

Inside of me. I can’t say.

Can you hear my heart beat?

My heart beats just for you.

Don’t go? There is time yet?

No? please?


Go then. Go only to

Come back to me. 

And there will be time, yet again.

  15. my first visit -

    read quite some, from the lohagarh travelogue, to the facts abt u aint getting time enuf to write, hating school.. et al; read abt the slept debt and that ur a good liar (lol!) was nice n easy reading thru the scribbles... ironic to the constructs they were representing..

    who can say what is a good write? we write what we feel and maybe try to draw the perimeter of emotions.. i dunno.. confessions was a nice.. but why does it end on a note where 'you have to come back' to me.. go only to come back to me...? does it ever happen, maybe in poetic justice.. wish there were such powers though!

    was nice reading the posts... in the maximum city, questions are never answered (is what i learnt)

  16. @ d Gypsy

    Thank you! I like the new Ire too!

    @ der Bergwind

    I am glad that you liked what you read here!

    And some questions are better off not answered!

  17. @ Nikki 'Ire'...
    fully agree.. sometimes there are right answers, sometimes wrong... sometimes there are no answers at all; so its important to ask the right questions.. and leave it at that :)

  18. i love this poem..going thru the exact phase right now..was super confused..i think this poem is a sign of what i should do..thanksa

  19. @ bugs.honey and some

#Sorry not sorry

I feel sorry for ‘Sorry’ – such an abused term. When you come to think of it, it is just a word, right? It holds significance in some instance and at times, it is a mere excuse. But we humans absolutely love it as an excuse, don’t we? I use this term a lot; I mean a lot! I think of myself as a kind being, and hence, if I happen to push or ignore (deliberate), I say ‘sorry’. I say sorry for things that may not need a ‘sorry’. I say ‘sorry’ to people I am not really feeling sorry for (don’t read this the wrong way). In short, I say ‘sorry’ a lot like I have already admitted. It is my ticket to moving on, a ticket to redeem myself for mistakes and sometimes, tinged with slight sadness (maybe).

But is ‘Sorry’ the right word? Mean, is it even appropriate? Like they say, first you commit the murder and then say sorry. What is the point of it? I would say nothing. Sorry – the term originated from the West Germanic term Sore that evolved to Sarig, meaning pained or distressed. It is also known…

I Wonder What Ants do on Rainy Days…

Source: Google Images
On days when the sun has abandoned us, hiding behind the grey, moody clouds. Do they sit inside their hills and wonder out loud? Do they stare outside at the rain, measuring the raindrops, letting thoughts splotch all over? Does the earthy petrichor take them down the memory lane? Or are they content with what nature has to offer? It is a part of their lives, isn’t it? They dredge up foods daily, diligently build their hills, even if it is to serve their queen, only to enjoy it on days like this, no? Maybe they do take stock of things, of their bearings. They ought to sleep it off, take a day to rest or do they lament on the lost time?
Unlike me.
When I gaze out, a gazillion thoughts fly by; some worthy of the pen, some so disturbing that I often question my sanity. I like the grey skies though. They seem like textured canvases waiting for me to scribble something. The lazy raindrops wetting the streets below and casting a temporary stain on window ledges bring a…

Celebrating Navratri? Stop now as we have no right to worship the female form...

Today my mom asked me to go get fall bidding done for her new saree. Navratri has begun and Durga Pujo is just around the corner. This year we are planning to go Pandal hopping on a Saptami instead of an Ashtami or Navmi to avoid the jams and the crowds. I will wear a saree too and my Punjabi husband will tag along for the delicious food.
In a multicultural household like mine, most festivals are a big deal, especially Navratri and Durga Pujo. But in the hullabaloo of festivities, we don’t stop to think of its essence – why do we celebrate Durga Pujo or Navratri at all. To celebrate Ma Shakti – a prompt answer from my mother. Navratri is a celebration of the nine stages of womanhood – a tribute to the power of the female.But to us commoners, it is a festival of dancing to the tunes of Garba or dandiya or Bollywood music. It is our turn to wear our best clothes, head out in the night, meet family and be merry. And once, this is over, the female form goes back to being what they always a…
