 It is my love for you, my Son
That’ll last forever
Until then,
Hold my lil finger and let’s
Walk through these clouds
That blinds us,
To a clear sky,
Where the sunshine awaits us.
Trust me; it is going to be fine
Let this hug from me comfort you, my child.
You’ve come into my life
To make me realise, how strong I am
Let me cross my heart
We shall meet again, soon
As you are yet to leave your handprints
On the wall of my life.

  Son, my Son
Hear the waves of an ocean
That’s gone silent over the years;
The moon had bid an adieu
On that awful day.
Son, my Son, my Moon
Come over
Kiss me
And, you’ll hear the ripples of love
Over again
In the ocean of my soul;
Come over
Come over
And, we'll fly to a land far off.

Lady, let me walk alone
I now love this lonely stroll
Ooh, ooh, ooh, honey
Lady, let me go
Would you?
I am through with you...Ooh...Ooh
Your kiss now doesn't reach my lips
Lady, you are out of my skin
Remember, you are the sole reason for the downfall
I’ve found a purpose to walk alone
And, it feels awesome 
Just like the feel of the mist
Ooh, ooh, ooh, my love
my alien girl
Let’s undo this love
Undo our love that once was
Ooh, ooh, ooh.
Lady, let me sleep alone
Through this wet, wet night.

O’ Lord, with boundless grace
Emperor of seven hills
the one with the captivating smile
Glory to you.
I, your subject
Circumambulate you with divine devotion.
O’ cowherd, Krishna
The one who held aloft the mountain
Glory to you.
All my life
I’ve seen you stand
In the sanctum-sanctorum, caged
In gold and diamond ornaments,
Obvious, you seem to relish such glory.
O’ divine, amongst all this opulence
Fades, the wail of my soul
I am choked
Uplift this fallen soul.
O’ lotus-eyed, descend into my heart
Let me coil you, to choke you
with my sorrows
Tell me, were you able to smile?

How elegant is that sight,
of you seated majestically
on a white swan
in the sanctum-sanctorum
draped in white, in compassion?
Your curls, truly symbolize the clouds.

Oh, Mother! you, they say
is truly the Queen of  Verses.

Then, why do you behave
as an uninformed?
Read, the soul which wails.

Oh, Mother, the fearless, shun the White,
 don the Red, Once and for all;
Stage the dance of destruction
Let those reverberations reach them tonight.

Spread open your third eye
Unleash the fire to turn them to ashes
Help this unfortunate, to end their Music.

In such ashes, is what I wish
to hold his little palm, help him write
the first letters of his life – “Pa”.
Won’t you bless us?

Your eyes -
Those which are unequaled,
In those eyes, I see an ocean of love.
Then it ensued
you were infinite, once
without a form.
An eccentric like me
sketched those eyes, lips
the bosoms, where the gushing waves of love spatter.
In this new form of yours
did you ever notice, this fall guy
who's abstained from your love!
You failed the eccentric,
Oh, Mother Goddess!

Let there never be an end
To these dark nights devoid of love,
I’ve found glitter in the darkest of the nights
And now, they send to me their angels
To cuddle with;
They hear me breathe
Touch my soul.
Girl, they caress my skin like it’s our first time
And, my mourns have become my moans.
Then, together we grind
In such a way that you’ve never known
I’ve begun to rejoice the vacuum in your heart,
I pity you, for, you've lost me.
Love, you've become a stranger
A mere stranger...

The soil is moistened
With the tears of a mother
Whose son lies smeared with his cold blood far away.
The guns and the bombs go mute
With the reverberations of her heart beats, which wails
Resonating her love
For her martyred son,
Whom she had once wrapped in a woollen blanket to keep him warm ;
Now, lies cold and limp
On the bosom of the Mother Land.

Oh, Mother!
I am a coward, unlike your Son
and, so inept to console you.

Jai Hind.

Written in solidarity with Indian Soldiers.

You make my heart pound like a teen
And, you blow fire on my skin
Oh, the gust of the breeze has swept my heart
I am dazed, as I taste the first kiss on my lips
Warm and wet.
Hold me tight
For, this is the night
And, when the moon is swept by the clouds,
Drop by drop-
Let us make love.
