    Its an inexplicable rush,
    almost comical
    and insanely cute
    to watch a pair of
    strong hands
    tremble nervously
    at the first thought of
    holding those
    delicate, tiny fingers
    worrying that
    it's fragile skin might
    crease with his
    clumsy touch
    that it's wobbling head
    might roll off his
    steely embrace
    that his rough
    lullabies sound like
    an old, crumbling plastic bag
    carefully folded & hushed
    and all of his masculinity
    begins to moisten at the
    first look of it's face

    The tender transition of a man into a father, is perhaps one of the most underrated, graceful, vulnerably melting, pure and fleeting moment we mustn't fail to witness.

    Eureka

    At the outset, it looks deceptively simple.
    Something even a layman could appreciate, and appreciate, a lay(d)man definitely does. But deep within, there's a little curled finger hidden that gently nudges the awakening of one's intellect for those who seek to find it. And it's a reward both to the reader and the writer to discover and experience this moment of shared epiphany, when the mind finally goes, Aha!

    टकसाली नज़रों से कुछ यूँ टटोलते हैँ मुझे
    जैसे मेरी बुद्धि इसमे कहीं दफ़न है
    बस दुपट्टा ही तोह बंधा है साहब
    मेरे अस्तित्व का नहीं ये कफ़न है

    Put-on

    I seek validation but a pseudo sense of self respect cringes at the thought of aggrandizing myself. For if I truly wrote just for me, these words would have lived and died in the shrouds of a diary.

    When I was being honest with myself, I had to own that there was something about me that was drawing an energy in my life that left me feeling underserved and unfulfilled. I decided to grow. I decided to purge myself of anyone and anything that was not full of goodness, serving me or making me happy.

    Purge

    Blunt knives
    do no good
    barely arrives
    dead as wood
    yet we hoard
    through many seasons
    a claustrophobe
    crowded with reasons
    whetstones we fear
    of the rubs & grinds
    off doors we steer
    drawing sluggish blinds
    corners, we fill
    heavy blades so dull
    of shelved skills
    inside our skull
    shoulders now sag
    under yores we borrow
    two heels to drag
    chores into tomorrows
    empty your head
    scavenge, what weighs
    weed out the dead
    and sharpen what stays
    blunt knives
    just eat space
    from our cluttered life
    either sharpen your blades
    or do away with the knife

    You must have your own ideas about it. You have to have your own myth. To have your own myth means to have struggled and suffered with a question until an answer has come to you from the depths of your soul.
    - Carl Jung (couldn't verify it)

    Miss Lead

    I throw a doubting pebble
    at the calm skin of the lake
    And watch them turn to ripples
    Learning what it really takes

    Concentric speeding circles
    that show me what they mean
    Muted and non-verbal
    Nihility is not what it seems

    Let's offer the benefit of doubt
    perhaps its nobbut a happenstance
    Then it's not you, I'm all about
    Just my subconscious state of trance

    I throw my thoughts as stones
    And grow love like
    weeds of infestation
    Manifesting it in skin, flesh and bones
    from seeds of an untapped imagination

    Then I think afterall
    I may not
    have fallen for you
    Perhaps I did fall
    for the idea of you
    But hey, ideas are caught
    inside my own head
    And as I
    give it a deeper thought
    Maybe I have
    fallen for me instead

    Direction is more important than speed.

    Cul-de-sac

    Every now and then
    I step back
    and pause

    For after all
    these years
    I've now learnt
    rather be late
    than arrive early
    at the wrong cause

    Every now and then
    I halt & witness
    my life like
    a road of thoughts

    I access
    the maps to
    where I've been
    where I'm heading
    and my
    present whereabouts

    Double checking
    the route
    scrolling it out
    until its end
    ensuring I'm
    not just racing
    towards a
    phantasmic deadend

    Attention please!

    Break it down and it all boils down to attention and to what lengths one would go to either attain it or avoid it. Now fill in the blanks with the whose, whys, whens and hows and you will have a vague answer to the question, 'What do I really want in life?' And if you wish to break this down further, ask yourself, 'Then, what!'

    Comatose

    Lies hurt less than unsaid truths and half-truths. There's a finity to lies. A certain demise. But half-truths keep a comatose relationship painfully alive for years. For the lack of something brutal to help your guilt pull the plug.

    Revelation

    Love, like religion
    must be discovered
    in your own ways
    at your own pace

    Force someone
    and there's a good chance
    they will protest it
    resist it or
    simply detest it

    Love, like religion
    must be discovered
    for it to be found
    but discovered,
    & not just be found
