Maybe We Were As We Are And As We Will Always Be

Poem By NAYANIKA DEY

At times I wonder,
haven't we ever met before?
The thin ribbon of wind that once passed by,
kissing your chiseled bearded jaw,
hadn't it ever stopped for a bite of a second
on the nest of my fist to kiss my bony fingers?
Were we never together yet apart in the same movie hall
when Jack's canvas was seeking sanctuary in Rose's curves.
The lighthouse that stands still between our valleys,
were we never together witnessing its gorged rays?
Were we never together reminiscing the circles of past seasons
of the sunflower garden,
absorbing the perfume of the raw clay pots drying by the dusty road,
listening to the warble of the pigeons on the pavement of city square
and also overhearing each other's voices
while crossing the crossroads?
Maybe we were, maybe weren't
Or maybe we were always there filling in
Each other's moments of solitaire.

The porcelain empyreal
Blended itself
Like a bride

Free Them O' God!

Free them O' God!
For, the wind is spewed with ashes of hatred,
The bilboes that wait to bangle the innocents,
Hauling them down the barbed streets,

You Are

You are my heart's home,
You are those reborn rays of light,
Even amidst darkness that roam.
You are the fragrant filled breath,

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
