Indulgence

Transition

A thousand thoughts I’m trying to put to words. Just about the right time for words to fail For prose to give up on me For means of communication to fade away Because a thousand is way too much for catharsis.

Along the way of life framed by self sabotage How many do we heave into the abyss of our mind Those that deserve not to be troubled with our insecurities... Continue Reading →

Busiest temple India has loved

One cloudy afternoon I awaited a time to arrive Squatting on the edge of a pavement At one of the busiest temples India has loved. One of the busiest temples India has loved To seek relentlessly in times high and low To overpower with prayers and woe To submit offerings and in surrender bow To... Continue Reading →

Perplexity

Fire that for ages consumed every element in existence Every little thing flammable and every massive one not Sparing not one thing in the way no matter how essential Do tell, did you find the one that satisfied your hunger? Thriving through levels and levels of devastation Claiming every last bit of what the world... Continue Reading →
