Bicycle – Neeraj Kumar (Exposed Emotions)

I walked backwards,I did headstand,I mimicked, I juggled,did the private danceto make it interesting. I tried to understandyour deliberate nonsense.I ate and swallowed my offense,and wriggled on your palmto keep it working.

Celebrating Mothers – Indishe

I loved her, And she loved me all the more. I cried, And she cried all the more. But the dewy pearls only inside seen, For outside she was all serene.

It’s raining almost every second day,and I’m learning to bloom from the earth,From life less branches to bed of dead leaves,something inside of me is telling me to know my worth. Sun is always shining over mountainsstill, there is this darkness in the woods,dripping down the lifeless branchesin a way only hope could. My mindContinue reading “Hope – Mermaid”
