Yes I Do Blame


Over a cup of tea

I thought

About you!

Your lingering thoughts lingered


Over another cup

And another

I realized it’s too much

Never I blame my thoughts

But three cups of tea at one go!

Yes, I do blame

The reason behind.

Status Quo


Neither I’m happy nor I’m sad

A state when I’m occupied

With me,

That awakened me

Who witness everything

The happened

The happenings

And the up-comings

Without being involved

In senses and sensualities.

Waiting Room


They come, they leave

In fact, they come to leave

Between coming and leaving

They rest a while

In the waiting room


Every chair has some memories

A smell, a touch,

A concern, or worry

A joy or an excitation

A feeling of love or hate

Always remains in the empty chair

As leftovers

Of a being


The quiet memories sit quietly in the chairs of the waiting room

Before another memory confiscates the place

Gentle memories vacate the chair

To accommodate another

Even though the memories retire

They never fade away

Layers of faint memories slowly melt into the chair

Uncountable emotions and their untold stories

Remain infused in to the soul of a meditating chair

If you put the ear of your heart they whisper


In an unknown country

In one such waiting room

From one of the corner chairs

I got to know about you

I heard your emotions

Left a smile, as finally I met you

And left a tear, finally I’m leaving too

If anytime you come to this waiting room again

Please meet the corner chair

I felt my fragrance

You are acquainted with.
