Bad Omen

humans are strange
they dress up graves
and coffins
just like they do brides

They won't care
unless your death can fill
their gossip inboxes

the one who might write
lofty obituaries
shall do so
to keep the superhero tag
of compassion 
for the doomed you

you will be alone
dying
drop by drop
or falling
floor by floor
images flashing by
faster than the speed of light

the little girl leaning on her father
the young teenager's first kiss
the woman in love
giving up her world for it
the mother who survived
the child who didn't

the wife hiding the scars
behind the makeup
the brave woman
who didn't let her hand
or her voice shake
even when her soul 
was falling apart

all of you
she loved
she had only soul to give
and a body
but you wanted more
so she let you go
to find your more


and let you push the dagger
deeper and deeper
into her heart
smiling


The mirror had cracked that morning
the hairdresser warned the bride
it was a bad omen!

Don't say you love me

Image : Google Images


Chooses the tenderest words



to describe a lost love


if you choose to remember me


sometime, in a rooftop cafe






whenever on a beach, if


a receding wave brings back memories 


of my impossible dreams with you


smile at the sea






the moment your newborn


clasps your finger in his palm


whisper my name in his ear


tell him he lived in my dreams






if you write an autobiography


leave a chapter blank for me


for ruins can't be mentioned


in stories about homes and families






Choose to move on


for burials must be brief


no words are ever appropriate


don't say you love me


that is the worst part !

Cenotaph




Pushing the sprained ankle
on the accelerator
she wants to speed away
from the invisible 
cage of misery 

She remembers 
his eyes, when he looked 
at her

what if she won't 
bring back the foot
to the brakes

she will die 
on a road
be buried or burnt
somewhere
but his soul will be her
cenotaph
