Nameless

Flame and smoke. 
What else your skies have to offer? 
Was it not a crime against 
poetry articulate? 
 
Come near me. 
I want to amble with tears - 
of humanity before the fragility 
takes a big toll. 
 
Who says it was time 
to turn over a new leaf? 
The blistering gale had taken 
away all the boughs and blossom. 
 
Are you pregnant with some 
idea of a candle? When it burns 
through night, it has an otherness: 
nameless melting.

It Was Invasion

How will you measure the wide 
gulf between words and hyphens? 
The apostrophes will give you 
restrain and isolation. 
 
The predators will sit and 
wait for the fallouts. The night 
was your domain to start 
sinning; in erasing the numbers. 
 
The midnight grief during the 
assault of moon. Were you ready 
to unmask the hidden inter- 
polator? The merciless thrush? 
 
Candidiasis? It was eating 
away your smell, your taste 
and moments of glimpses 
of the fire in the groins.

Ritualist

Boundaries untouched- 
I held your hands. 
Peer to peer. 
 
The highway apart- 
we will become strangers, 
when life would beat the flower beds. 
 
From mountain top- 
the moon will come down, 
to ask for the way to martyrdom. 
 
How will I find you- 
riding on a hurricane, 
when the deluge underwhelms the bridge. 
 
Not made public- 
I took you in moonlight, 
celebrating the arrival of the cage.

The Trappers

There was left no middle, 
of the path. It was a washed- 
out theme and 
negative numbers. 
 
No bounce in the steps. 
You were cowering in terror 
of tomorrow. The fear 
overwhelmed the alp. 
 
It was a family feud, 
from ashes to bones. 
The mixed cadence was sending 
the wrong signals to the walls. 
 
The voices now come on the street, 
for traditional wars, in 
change of seasons. It 
was raining out of turn.

The Firebrands

Do not remove the hyphens. 
The stars were trekking 
on foot. 
 
All that was a mirage. 
A hot rood was leading 
to a watershed. 
 
The wholeness splatters 
on the bank. The water, 
takes all the dots and dashes. 
 
The black tree was stark 
naked. No leaves, no fruits. 
Only the singed wood. 
 
You cannot make the 
matchsticks. You will have 
to rub your hands to start the fire.

The Second Night

A gene switch takes an 
ultimate spin. The 
hunger pangs increase. 
Nostalgia looks up at the moon. 
 
- - - - - - - - - - - 
 
I cannot predict the junk; 
cannot see the dark matter. 
But I know well, how you will 
behave when your head explodes. 
 
- - - - - - - - - - - 
 
The body stuns the anointed 
deity. It was difficult to foretell 
who was a sinner. I 
do not want to summon another god. 
 
- - - - - - - - - - - 
 
You open the belly knot of a 
beast. A butterfly flutters 
on your lips. I implore a memorable 
kiss of the beautiful descent.

The Poem

In high definition 
you were extolling the 
unspoken words. 
I was trying to grab that 
something, so nice, 
like a poem. 
 
My mate! 
Let us talk about the 
rhythm of wilderness in private. 
It has been ages 
when we slept together, 
like a poem. 
 
Where there was a 
waterfall, you were crying, 
as a fallen dew. I 
wanted to hold you on 
the leaf of grass, 
like a poem.

With Apologies

Sitting in ivory tower 
you will watch a tragedy 
of epic nicknames. 
 
In future of reprisals 
there was a culture of hate. 
A solar hit will claim the frenzy. 
 
It was a naked death 
of a stolen whip, at 
high speed game of sex. 
 
A new wrinkle appears 
on the headless body, 
after the wow, oh wow! 
 
Why did you take my 
name for your name? 
After all what is in a name.

Emission Biochemical

The spill overwhelms- 
the bank. The fish 
will meet the mates. 
 

 
Fireflies outstretch, 
in green blaze, igniting 
the extinct flame. 
 

It is September, and 
I need you, for 
a final rendezvous.

Mystery

The fumbling picks up. 
The sixth sense 
was failing. 
 
A mother weeps 
for the unborn child. 
You were still ogling the peaks. 
 
Were you true to yourself 
in the dark, when the 
moon was away? 
 
I had lost the burning 
coals, after the 
rains came. 
 
The dark mine, where 
they were shot, for 
picking up the lightning.
