I belong to India and have lived here for over 24 years. My profound interest is in writing poetry. Though these days i have been trying my hand at story writing as well. I pursued Masters of Arts in English from Delhi University. I am a teacher by profession teaching at Doon Public School as a TGT English.

I Prevailed Sedately

On every little unjust act,
I broke inside,
On every little partial comment,
I broke further,
On every crude conduct,
I became empty,
On every piercing remark,
I filled myself.
On every impertinent instance,
I hardened myself.
On every snippy judgment,
I was filled with dissent
On every consuming denial,
I stood sturdy
On every pretentious care,
I felt shallow.
On every demeaning proclaim,
I felt elated,
On every inconspicuous attack,
I forbade all repercussions.
On every disparaging effort,
I prevailed sedately

Winds of Change

Winds of change

Blow sweet wind,blow loud blow clear.
You carry the aroma,
the aroma of metamorphosis.

Knock every door
where she suffers
because she is SHE
hit every face,
soothe them, sedate them,
for their values fetch no true sedation.
Caress every shoulder,
so they may carry
the load of their sins.
Pierce each heart,
so they may love profound
like a mirror.
Wither each mind,
so they may re-learn
without grudges.
We are ‘near the wind’,’
on the prowl
for winds of change.

When words fail you

When words fail you,
heart ceases to be at peace,
eyes speak for it, can’t enwrap it all
they can’t deceit, for they show all.

Mere movements of lips,
shaking unshakingly ,says a lot
trembling, not meaninglessly
When words fail you

Curling the toes,
turning away your gaze
kvetching the silence
When words fail you.

Incertitude of love-less-life
when you expect the favor
but fail to evince
When words fail you

Numb body, brimming love
Lost coherence of soul and self
Unflagging desire to get solace
When words fail you.
