Nothing Beyond Today

Do not come to me for words of kindness 

I have none to offer, nothing to share

Do not seek me for guidance, I am more lost than you are

I wander, but I know there are no answers 

No guidelines for life

All you have is your stupid voice, in the back of your head


“End the agony,”

It’s amusing to me, I know not if it’s for you

I await the sweet Release of death 

Whenever it graces me with tenderness. 

My Godot is lost too, maybe we would be stuck under the tree

So no asking for help, no seeking the higher path

There is nothing beyond, nothing beyond today. 

Like Dandelion

She is one entity, free from any tag, any name which is not her own 

She has nothing to her name, no one has her back. 

She just is, one. 

Like a dandelion drifting in the wind 

Rootless, yet with a sense of destined path 

She has to follow too,  but she is alone. 

Damn the spirit which never breaks 

Those silent tears in moments of utter despair 

That smile which never fades 

No matter the ordeal. 

She just is, one. 

Wild in her own way, drifting in the course of the wind 

Making her own way, 

To you. 

Twinkling Stars

Stars twinkle, or are those lights? 

Which seem to be fading out as I try hard to stare 

To make sense, it is all falling apart in my head 

Or is my body collapsing? 

Am I giving up? I fear

This is what it feels like to let go? 

Did I even let go? 

Or am I just fading, like dreams in my sleep 

Those lights still twinkle, or are those stars? 
From the morose attitude to the struggle to be happy, heartfelt wishes to all. Happy Diwali! 

Like saffron, this scent comes drifting to me 

In the breeze, mixed with something sweet 

Who knows what it is 

But the saffron lights on the horizon can tell

Spread over the clouds, scattered across the sky

It’s the end of another day, another time

Longing creeps over me as I remember them one by one 

And sigh the deep sigh of despair.
