To be?

The unfairness of this world

Sits heavy on my chest

I need to be here

How tough it is, to grow up

To be one, among one billion

Minds and ideas and thoughts

Colliding and crashing

In this massive violent war

To breathe

To be

Or maybe,

Not to be.

I feel

I drink sips of grief

From a porcelain cup

Of tea.

I taste the bitter

Sweet memories

In this black

Coffee.

Coloured candies of

Sweet sugar sweet

Melt on my pink

Tongue.

Salt from a

Pile of white stick

To my wet fingers.

I feel.

Immerse

We immerse in our days

Of rush, rush, rush

Struggle to breathe

In this sea of work

All this while,

I remember things

I didn’t remember

And wish to hold light

Between my pale fingers.

Bulb

I feel the bulb

Shining in my room

My white moon

On the white wall

Stars of fluorescent glow

Stuck on the ceiling

Look at me dreaming

Under their dark halo

Tock tock

Tick tick,

My phone blinks

With emails and messages; flowing seas

An empty bottle

An unread letter

Deep in my chest, I float hither

With the waves of subconscious, lost and alone.

So alone.

Sleepy

Eloquent beaks of unsung tunes

Spine of feathers

Fine figures

Sleepy stars in

Warmth of blanket blue

A dream of possibilities

Sun of white and grey hues.

Find

I converse with different minds

To understand my own;

An endless quest

To find myself

In unknown faces

With voices of their own.

An endless quest

To find myself

In this thick fog of

Silence.

Not human

Root my feet into the soil

Bare my limbs

To the wrath of the sun

Branch my fingers

To a million yellow

Let me become

Not human, for once.

Rainbow life

Eyes that are always dreaming

Lips that are always sulking

Shoulders and shoulders shrugging

Hands on face and elbows on desk

A mouth that talks of managing yourself

Minds of 61 and a noisy clock

Blue sky, grey winds, a flying frock

Green trees and humming beehives;

A Rainbow Life.

20 acres

Hundreds of faces

Smiling, sneering, sweating

A mind with

Million thoughts running

Red ants on my bed

And in my clothes, celebrating

Feet on cold humid ground,

Tapping and dancing

Litter of stars

A bright moon, glaring

Booming laughs and huge trees

Drunk greens, swaying

Smoke in between fingers

That cling onto death in small measures

Dark and loud light

On my soft hands.

~20 acres of a dream

Within a dream.
