Poem By NAYANIKA DEY

Half of the universe is becoming fragile
With big pupils resting in the sockets of clay cauldrons
Celebrating the birth of death and thereby the death of immortality
Floating through the thinnest medium between space and time

11: 59 PM

I am still awake in the other half of the universe
Hiding my eyes from the reflections of reality
And shutting my ears from the silent chaos
With my womb homing a rapist's child.
Wondering if only a minute to 12: 00 AM would have made a difference.

Beauty In My Broken Places

It is as ardent as a ruby
And nonpareil as a gold,
Decked with keloids like pearls
It is a pure treasure trove,

Pain

I am addicted to pain,
For they say,
After every night,
There is a day,

Our Shadows And Sighs

Of all
That you
Wanted to say
And all that
