Melancholia

the night grows on as minutes burn to hours I lie in my bed curled in the sheets that was once ours ♥ the matted off-white blanket the stains on the pillows remind me just how inconsolably incomplete I am ♥ like frozen ashes your smell from the covers slowly replaces the air in my…

Innocent Vengeance

She was just a little girl incapable of hatred. She stood by the shore for hours each day hurling pebbles into the sea hitting the harsh waves. She wanted to hurt the sea like the sea had hurt her by prising away her father. She cried and cried and wanted the sea to cry too. For…

If…

If words could release the rues I’d write a 1000 page book If tears could beat the woes I’d cry out an ocean and more If pores of the skin could subsume the deluge I’d plug each pore with grit and soot If heart beats could override the hope I’d make the heart swell and…

la douleur exquise

And ever so slowly I fell in love with you while watching you lost in worlds far away from me with the way you lose yourself in stories drifting to unreal places desiring fictional novices when you scribble hurriedly when you smile contently with the way you keep secrets buried in your heart only your eyes bearing testimony ♥…

Unlove

One fine evening I sat knitting. Shifting patterns and struggled trials, Doing and undoing the thing, over and over again… At times, I cursed beneath my breath, other times, I hurled them yarns and needles, right across the room… It was less a struggle with the needles, more with my heart and mind. The mind made it so…

Dying Embers

Fire burnt the logs through the night, and all that was left behind were the dying embers… the warmth of your touch sinking deep under my skin, you were the fire slowly turning me to ash… under the starless sky, we lay, counting beats that slowed down, like twigs turning to embers… ♥ as you traced your finger…

Finally Home

Lived stranded, for far too long, accepting, all that came along until I met you! ♥ The moment I set eyes on you is the only moment I’ve lived in a long long time A nice warm feeling it was, and I was cold and numb this far, I had nowhere to go But now,…

Black

To me you’ll always be the colour black concealing a part of me So dark so mysterious so seductive so rebellious Engulfing me heart and whole like the darkness  that surrounds There you are and yet not there cease to exist at the slightest touch An illusion a mirage in the depths of my heart all…

Following

In the middle of the night When I turn out the light I see your shadows Following me Anxious I push aside the curtains Peeking out the window Check over once thorough Finding nothing Less settles my restless heart Bringing myself out on the porch I tip-toe Behind the bushes, Beyond the fence Waiting for the shadows…

If We Ever Meet Again

On restless evenings, filled with utter hopelessness, Lying sprawled under the ceiling, weaving mindless fantasies. I wish for the hundredth time, that we crossed paths, someday. And also curious, that if we ever met again, what would it be like? A thousand memories lie scattered on the floor, From that day, when it all ended.…

The Woods (Part 2) – A Short Story

contd… Where were you? Panic was starting to set in. It was no more a joke. Please come back! Teasing me? Like I was teasing you minutes ago. You always played this game. Hide n seek. Only so you could come around me and hug me from the back. Startling me. But this was no…

The Woods (Part 1) – A Short Story

You held my hand as I walked ahead of you. You trudged along. The dried leaves, tangled mass of branches, scattered everywhere. The leaves crunched beneath my feet reminding me just how much I love autumn. Sunlight crept in through the dense mass of leaves and branches overhead. I looked up, above me, loving the feel of the not-so-harsh…

Mindless Musings

You crave for something for only so long, and then you begin convincing yourself. That certain blanks will remain unfilled forever, certain meanings undeciphered forever, some questions will forever seek answers and gradually, you lose hope, there’s no more faith left, no right or wrong. Just you and your mindless musings, for days, for years,…

Letters

On the loneliest days, when living’s hard to do, infused with pensive longing, your letters carry your smell, and also the reason for wanting to breathe again ~~~~~~~ Asha Seth

December

the snow, the chilly winds, these will always be, December, though, will always remind me, of us, you and me, your whispers on foggy breaths, the warmth of your touch, melting beneath my skin. ~~~~~~~ Asha Seth

In your eyes…

I don’t really remember when was the last time that I was away from her. Maybe when I was very little to even know what missing someone means. But I’m sure it wasn’t for so long that every beat of my heart craves to see her again around me, casting that radiant smile shining my…
