Litmus Paper


Because of my addiction to you

Every day I work out my best to prove

My worth to you

Because of my inclination to your view

Every day I collect and recollect some innings

To make you love, the precious you

Because of my attraction for you

Every day I try my best to bring you out

from the shackles and renew as a budding

in the garden of blossoming few

Because of the familiarity

I niche you in my core,

crave designs in litmus paper

to present myself and my worth

Because I feel you near me

So I paint my canvas with your drawings.





The forest of their emotions


Surged to the level


In a distinct nearness


The mad impulse


Runs inexplicably in one direction




Meant to mingle in one route




Their melody is heard in the brazen land




among the breeze


creating magically waves


in their hearts.



Random Wholly


Stranded within the cru fix of words


I assume the slice and dice of strands


I resume the copious counterparts


I presume its judicious impact


Resonating my image dubiously in the tracks


I check the voice


I recheck the preface


Of all the by lanes and trance


I stand lonely


I reaffirm wholly


My views to be guided by judgements


Not by dreaded tally.
