I am delighted to announce that recently I was a part of an interview done by Pooja of Lifesfinewhine. We discussed a few aspects of Art in a short, crisp way. Head over to her blog to read my interview and all the lovely things she writes there and do show your love to all her blog posts.
the voice cracks in the summer sun
I hear things falling apart
underneath my door knob
behind the cobweb- almost gone now
i hear things decaying,
distorted as the morning yawn
the leaves so parched
the sun , cold and warm
there is a music that stops playing as i write this
the music that speaks about fallen dreams,
listless curvature of atmosphere.
stillness is what i observe 'stillness in my body, my toes and lips
the earth so happy and warm now
almost like a cerulean sadness
torn into threads of bruises
into diverse sects of lemon dried faces.
the hands so small and white
with my bosom hanging restlessly on the table.
there are things so peculiar occurring everywhere.
restless yet a still monochrome pattern of life
But this sorrow never ends. The tongue that runs cold due to platonic threads of sins and cold meadows the ache is blooming each day beneath the blue unfolded eyes the colour green- now a tone of burning bodies this is my survival song, you see with lines cryptic sunset on my lap the night never fades away the soil enriched with a glint of my water my heavy overwhelming collapsing lungs. this poem shall not soothe you- instead would ask you to hunt something more some more of air, water, sun , fire. in your neighborhood about the fallen leaves. dry tongues, neck choking. about things so unpleasant you would not otherwise want to know.
But the thing is everything shall be depleted. This. Us and our stay. What if, I could hold the habit of loving you for once? My eyelids dipped in lemon peel thinking of ways to dream about you. The rooms that still roar about our love making. The walls still cracking a semantic, quiet low noise of our moans and fight. Erratic evenings, whereby we submerge our small elbows in the auburn breeze. I want to cling to the habit of just that. Your coconut hair, small long talks, talks so mellow and crisp almost like I ate my fruit bowl. To hold your poetic words and brown moments of paper noise is all I had dreamt of all this while. To stay connected to your face, slender neck always popping and mind / spring quartet. Nothing else. That’s my habit/ a ritual that I perform each day to listen to the music of things staying lost between us. The Art of a singular dialogue. A singular atom of love. A single You.
I am more than glad to have stumbled upon Lucy’s gorgeous blog and we both decided to do a collaboration together. Please read and let us know of your opinion in the comments. Show some love to her blog as well.
It happened again the dead sea full of dried emotions and the charm to write about withering winters happened again, from my arms to my toe nails with colors and with a paint- brush the knuckles are red due to migraine, the bosoms are sagging due to age. The concept of time throws my memory into a massive ocean of sins/ fears/ aches. And I think of myself as a soft folktale, lost somewhere, occurring due to occult or a greasy lovemaking. I count the days back and front to defy the mouth in exasperation to write about the shivering body. Madness is what keeps my soul intact, I can talk to my mind for longer hours often with dead bumblebees right beside me, here- with leaves falling upon my chest my mahogany textured hair clinging to a sad tree.

If this is bliss, please don’t leave; silhouettes played by sculptural midnights is a song and dance of memory; the opus rises like god's rainwater of tragedy and embrace— it entrances my bones kneed into pride like a strange dream; a legacy of my footing in the stone, I saw it today in the past to defy the orgasmic cult, prime and prime shadows in the back of my mind, as messianic blood drops from my feet it had crushed the late moon on its garden bed, almost thieving the sleeping bear mentioned for its own season; the eucalyptus wilts in my asylumned winter, the violence within my dreams and the uncoiled warmth of the thorn into my side, claws into my first breath.

Dear readers, How have you been all? Even though I write my poetry and words and keep on doing so many various projects to help the writing community and people in general why is there a sudden urge to relax a lot? I agree I need to take a pause. I believe in slow yet productive growth but somehow my mind is getting tired to easily due to all the works I am managing and no its not the stress that I have. It's something else. Anyway, I wrote a short poem about how I feel.
The air burns, with a punctured sniff. the breeze sits on my chest counting my eyelids, backwards and the body swells up without a notion of cold blossoms. The air petrifies my nail, the tears stink, often. It's the forehead, it's the arm or is it my lips that hallucinates? A cobweb, so brutal on my chin blooming like a flower. What do I call it now? The season of spring or a particle of dust.
The other day I thought of writing a poetry about healing About self- love, growth Nonsense. My tone is still abrupt, crooked, melancholic Orange like the winter sun My hands are yet pale. Yellow as the home cooked oil, The other day I thought of writing about memories that soothe me Motionless. About the barren walks Only to find how my head still bleeds The mind that has empty grass, Wild flowers not beautiful my friend, Everything wild is not beautiful for things need a foundation too. Everything I know is rust Everything I know is blue rain, Forgotten like the rains so beautiful Forgotten like the winter chills in the Summer. Healing is a slow process Coiling into a watery prayer.
