I’m re-blogging this poem in the light of recent events. The Hathras Gang Rape Case has left all of us horrified, disgusted. But first of all, we really need to erase this stupid mentality where we blame the victim for being raped. “Rape is the only crime in which the victim becomes the accused.” Freda […]Read More Why?
It swirls in the whites of my eyes, threatening to shroud me from myself, and drown me in despair. Misery now defines me and my life. Black ink spills from my eyes. In desperation, I write and rewrite my destiny. The black slate remains black. Crimson coloured curtains made of rose petals touch my body. […]Read More Into The Unknown
Deep, deep, deep inside,A place in the heart, unexplored,Lay a beautiful black rose.Touched by love and hate alike,A charming showpiece, quite ignored,Out of reach, but still so close.Some emotions that want to hide,Hide, but they just don’t go,Trapped by a beautiful rose.Lust, desire, passion–takes time,Hatred, anger and scarred ego–To gather it all, in the rose’s […]Read More Black Rose

I’m drowning in cold waters,I’m facing my heart’s slaughter.I’m destroying my own self,I’m giving up, please help.I’m pounding on the wooden door,I’m running, scared of anything four.I’m hiding in a deathly home,I’m giving up, I’m alone.I’m feeling weak and tortured,I’m witnessing my deadliest horrors.I’m screaming in unseen anguish,I’m giving up, I’m languished.I’m drinking blood, my […]Read More giving up…..
In a world where,black spills from the tortured eyesand people drink a cup of lies. In a world where,darkness forms the core essenceand dementors haunt my demented presence. I writhe and turn in this self made cage,Sculpted out of misery and rage.Silence hovers amidst those sleepless nights,Far more terrorizing than endless cries. But now I […]Read More A Phoenix Will Rise Soon
Interesting. Very interesting. Your hands mimic mine; your lips mimic mine. Curving in that familiar way to form a smile. You flip your hair the same way I do….used to. Your eyes hold the same twinkle mine do….used to. You are even wearing my favourite earrings! Those colourful ones! You are so close to me, […]Read More Mimicry
