​The blank white page

Brushed against my fingers 

That held the brush, 

Dipped in a colourful ink, and 

All my inspirations came down 



In front of me, in the form of 

The arch of your back, 

The curves of your valley 

Kissed by the setting sun, 

Dimming the contours of your shape, 

Teaching me a whole new language. 

My mind drew the image of 

Your black locks, 

Resting on your face, 

Lighting up from the rays

Pouring through the curtains, and 

You were marvellous, 

We were beautiful. 

The twenty year old ebony table 

Carved with your memories, 


Battered, came into view, 

The wood peeling off, 

Yet so prosperous, 


On the brink of solitude. 

My soul sang songs in this new, unexplored, 

Yet familiar language, and 

My mouth sighed its consonants, and 

My mind narrated the beautiful tale, 

But my hand still didn’t move an inch.

It’s thirty minutes past midnight,
A dim lamp basking in the yellow light,
Giving me a little sunshine
In this dark room, as I come in,
Slowly sit down, and start wondering
About how contrast works,
Dark room, yellow light,
Black walls, white mind,
Closed doors, open windows,
And a cup of coffee in my hand,
A little sweet, a little bitter,
Quite strong, quite sober,
Making me notice the little
Contrasts of moments,
As I swiftly pen them down
In this poem.

Your moods are like raindrops
In summers,
Or maybe autumn.
Rare, but powerful.
Light at first,
So soft, so refreshing,
And then in the blink of an eye,
Loud, furious,
Sharp like needles;
Gradually fading away
As if it never happened,
As if it wasn’t there.
It’s confusing, how I hide,
When it rains, and
How I desire it,
When the scorching heat
Rules the day.
