Mother, I sometimes think about how I fell apart from you in all these years That I have stories to tell my friends, my lover and even strangers But I have nothing to tell you. That as soon as I left your womb, I have just wanted, craved and desired And never looked back ever since. That I often gro  Read More...

Take me there Where clocks don't wind, Where a man can't victor, Where what stands up for me is more than my feet, Where colours excite me, Where cold gives me chills, Where I feel more than my body, Where breath is spring, Where nothing exists. Lord, Wherever you exist.  Read More...

Inside this stupid body Lives a saint & a creep. They say you need man and woman to complete, But inside I have my own bickering couple, that never wants to cede. Nobody inside is wiser, There’s always boiling a civilwar with peace. Well, the problem gets more miry with my two soldiers, Th  Read More...

The Hope hawker

From that rickety raggedy station with broken seats Pavements stripped off any flesh of porch or even a patchy beginning He’d hope on & Rush to ambulate every coach perennialy Usurping eyes & nimble feet Hawking Tea for 5 , Cheaper than the bundled waste in bins Egged on  With eve  Read More...

The sleepless night

This Time of Night, When only my mobile screen shines bright. When these eyes beg for sleep, I keep them burning, Gleaming in the artifical light Wanting & Waiting to be told a Lie. To be sold,  A goodnight.  Read More...

It’s a dark, dark day. And yet the sky has never been clearer It’s a dark dark night Yet the chill from the moon has never been fonder I thank my neighbour, talk to my room mate, ask my maid to take rest and randomly help a stranger.
