That Touch

And he said he didn’t touch me, I smiled Hiding the storm inside. The storm of urge- To have him, To love him. If not it was the touch Then why did I feel that way When he came close, His scent infused so deep That I could see nothing except him The words, like … More That Touch

Solitude

The grass doesn’t disappoint it anymore, Accepted the truth has it from the core. Not green, Nothing more can be mean. The leaves betray, But branches stay. No fruits, no flowers, No praises and pampers. May be roots hold strong, God knows for how long? Neither autumn nor winter, The seasons don’t bother. Enjoyed the … More Solitude

Where my teary eyes are comforted By the smiles you bring, Where you crave to reveal Again and again- … More Interchange

Am I the reason?

Am I the reason You fight often, When I question your trust Every now and then . … More Am I the reason?

With dreamy eyes She starts the day, Listing down the roles She plans to play. World so vast She sets to cover, Be it formal tea Or the family supper.
