Taking a raincheck on one’s feelings
Is a recipe for disaster
Trying to be strong for both of us
Has only made me weaker

World’s greatest armor
Is being in disguise
Only when the chinks start to show
You will know that there is nothing brave inside

 So why don’t you pull that veil
Make me scream
Say those words and
Save me too?


  1. Ha...The first two lines are an absolute truth. Screaming is healthier :) I love that 'recipe for disaster' expression.

  2. Sometimes the words do need to be released. Awesome response to the prompt.

  3. "World’s greatest armor
    Is being in disguise"
    And as you show, it is flawed armor with many chinks. I'd rather scream!

    1. Good to know that someone relates to these lines! :D

  4. Perhaps, a scream is a healthy and saving release. Great response to the prompt.

    1. Thank you! It is :) especially when it is withheld for an unhealthy amount of time

  5. A scream is definitely called for!

  6. At least a scream will stop people in their tracks.

  7. Oh yes. A good scream is worth a thousand words. It's healthy for individuals and relationships to allow and accept emotional expression.

  8. Thought provoking poem that screams JUST SAY IT!

  9. Ah yes, words can save us from ourselves, our insecurities, our fears, our inescapable conundrums. If only they are said by the right person, at the right time, at the right place! Lovely poem!

An ode to the good night

The night gave me his shirt And solace and comfort I could stare at his face All night long And expose my secrets how
He gifted me solace From mundane encumbrances For most part exacerbated by That cantankerous bitch known as day.
Her piercing eyes Questioning everything Intent on making me sweat You cannot excise the truth mom Just ask nicely maybe?
Why do you like him more you ask I can walk his streets Dark it maybe Safe to brandish out my scattered self And lick the ice cream off my hand
Streets sparse with kindred spirits Silent whispers Ready to let me in On their simmering secrets

Once the sunlight sets in The clocks get reset The same souls turn back into harsh humans & Atone for yesterday’s falter
With my back broken I limp through the day And surrender to my dear father He puts on his twinkling smile Reserved only for these special nights And snuggles his daughter The travails of the day seem far away If only for these few hours.

"in the street of the sky night walks scatteri…

Writing to the tunes of a tamil kuthu song! 

Unleash the pyaar  When the chest is too tight  and future not too bright  why so morose  when you can write a killer prose
Get in the groove lady  and do a bam chika bam bam  dreams can be lost and won  firstly you need to run  Smile at the sun we don't need another nun  actually we do  Amen! 

But first go  nanananana yah yoo yipee  whooo  MEEE
Found a judgement I was searching for all day , so decided to unleash some silliness :P  

ek gaon mein ek kisan raghu thatha! :P

It's been a week in Pune already!! :O
and believe it or not  - I have fallen in love with this city! <3
or maybe it is just another one of my defense mechanisms , protecting me from shocks. Whatever this is , it has aroused me enough, to write a post! So let me finish this before reality sinks in .
( Side note :

  Defense mechanisms are pretty intriguing . Do you know that I haven't cried a single tear drop yet? My friends think it is some kind of sacrilegious blasphemy from my  part. But hey! If pessimists argue that I have effectively ended one life , I argue back that I have just started a new one :) I do miss chennai . However , I am not going to go gaga over it. Okay I just did . )
I haven't had much chance to discover the city in its entirety yet. But , from whatever I have seen - it is fresh , green , pleasant and mindnumbingly beautiful :')

So here it is . The elusive list of things I have noticed about Pune and my new life in general :

1) I was never a nat…
