The Cosmic Woman






stranded in herself
her soul tugs at
the invisible gyve

the light
at the end of the tunnel
distant, cold,white

a planet chained
to its orbit
the indifferent cosmos
has forgotten her

between eclipses
and glares
her craters ache
for a pause
and some respite.

Shiver





 Kissing a thousand frogs
sometimes she would see
the flicker of a prince

lips brushing
tongues digging
fingers that reached
only the cleavage
never the hidden treasure
beneath that skin

bodies and organs
the cosmic dance 
desire,lust,seduction
a missed heartbeat
a moment
liquefied
in the corner of an eye

dreams quiver
and vaporize
time you traitor
kissing the next disguise

she waits to undress
the light
she hides beneath
folds of flesh
and a shiver travels
down her spine.

THE CLOSET



Featured post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers









Tentative fingers dive 


into the layers


entangled layers rather


of years together






This smooth cleavage-like


silk scarf from Brugge


A coarse cotton 


hand-loom in Bhutan


hairy, sweaty 






pulsating time


the pairs of watches


never worn together


never torn apart


heartbeat?






and I tug and pull out


the soul beneath flesh


smoke grey


my favorite one


from Istanbul






and it all tumbles out


as tears, memories


bruises and scars






I am a drowning closet


spilled on a cold floor.

Guest Appearance

some absences are conspicuous
looking for something lost
that was never yours

listening to baul songs
I understand nothing
other than the pang
snip,snip,snip

rust mark of a pin
on two papers
they must have been together
long back ago

valentine loneliness creeps
like unusually cold February
grief never fully thaws


The crater in my chest is back
so is the tumor in the spine
love keeps making
guest appearances
