Jugnu Si (Like a Gloworm)


Late into troubled nights
I have often caught myself flaunting
A flicker of a smile, unaware.
It must be you thinking about me
After your two shots of Vodka
Or is it Rum 
That you have these days?

  1. Alcohol induced thoughts...many ways to go with those...smiles and heartaches, both!

  2. Alcohol brings out our inner thoughts in ways sometimes we cannot deal with... good and bad memories that take hold of us stronger because of the alcohol...

Long Winter Chill

If I could do a Neruda,
You would have smelt of summer roses
And Autumn pine.
There would have been sheer love
Of the kind that causes our hearts to ache
And loneliness bordering the divine.
You would have had so many secrets
Welling up as in a girly giggle
And so few friends who would hear them all.I am no Neruda
I can't paint you a Summer breeze
Amidst this long winter chill.

The Color That Blinds

Every time I close my eyes
I see the green of Kerala countryside
The dark greens of lumbering rubber trees
The even tranquil green of silent paddy fields
The light lemon yellow green from tender clover leaves 

And then I remember your dupatta
Deep red or possibly maroon
Standing out among the Kerala countrysides.

Hush

You don't have to tell me.
I just know.
Its that little sniffle that comes through
The unexplained pauses
The slow responsesI know when you call
Just because you needed to cry.
