Needy Sleep






Touch me now in my deepest sleep

When my dream falls from the crest 

In my conscious fancy I redeem and forsake life 

With your fingers meandering through my body 

I heal from within and all my malice perish 

I seek your wings and long for our sunrise 

Carry me to the boundaries of your passion, if there are any  

Force me into prayers that we left behind  

Seep into my pillow as gently as the morning dew  

Never let me go – stream life into my dismal dilemma

Prosperities of Shame





On the loveless shell of the butterfly-lady I knocked again

The feeble wilderness trotted to the door

Wagging her tail she smelt my whiff

And touched the fresh rain on my forehead

The wagging needn’t stop

And it didn’t until she heard those silver chinks

Palms greased, love bloomed

Sights turned blinding with every burning swig

I lived my night in celebration of necessary infidelity

Sleep vanished, with desolate dreams whispering my name

I took the tired night train home

My steps faulty, my throat lurking about a torrid tune

I saw a moth sleeping in my bed

My fingers felt like claws

Outgrown in my heretic spree

I know that even my dingy smile,

My rebel-red eyes or my tearing claws

Will never move her one bit

She has seen all my cards, my claws, my shudders

And my shivers too

The cruel time has clipped her tender wings

Unmoved unconsoled understated

And in sleep sublime she lies

The monotony of my existence and mother of my child

Masculine Monotony





Boredom has set sail into the ocean of time


The same face, the same birth-mark, the same flesh


The same fingers of the same lady tottering on my chest


Dancing to the same simmering silly melody


Sometimes, when waves break in my head, I loosen my stride


I rape I rinse I ride and in my leach-like superiority call it love


May be she loves it, may be she doesn’t. Who cares!


My forefathers have assured me this masculine liberty


She’ll have to bear this bondage for eternity now


She can’t have the luxury to choose, and she never will

My War, Our War





Raise me again my mother

Bring me up in chains

Kiss my forehead one last time

Before I die in vain


Point those faces to me my mother

That bred this eternal unrest

When I come home sew my wounds

But send me back to our war fest


I will be born here again my mother

With the same innocent flame

Seeking in this wasted wilderness our unborn peace

We’ll dream together a dawn caressed by the breeze


This birth has spawned nothing mother

So I snatch what fancies my eyes

My dreams have never surpassed running water

And we’ve spent years of lies


Call me undead if you wish

Make sure we are completely slain

For we are living infestations

Forced to gnaw your home again


Your coffee-mug readers don’t speak our tongue

So you will never know our fate

But we will live forever

To pounce upon your plate

Last Gaze





Peep into my jasmine gaze


In the shadow of my leftovers -


My stolen roses, my tinsel memories


And all those mindless days



Even the eagles of my desire


Wish the end of my ailing fatigue


My unmoved time sleeps like the princess


Who cried all night in satanic gloom



As I spend my cakes and sand dunes


In my rarest spite of passion


I know I’ll return to live yet again


Like a swordfish among whales

Denial Meets Disgrace



A brown wilderness stares at me

The barren lady has nothing more to offer

Her parrots bark in the stale air

On that silent day we went inside



The lady lying disheveled on her wilting meadow

The pleasing velvet has peeled her skin

Her voices crave indifferent emotions

And her pale senses live me like death



I have bought pain with unnecessary silvers

An attack of conscience stifled my brain

The mythical love has just started fuming inside her

As she erupts to kill her empty pain



Holy pilgrim trapped within those dead walls

Eager to lay bare all that she’s learnt from her age

But to me the cynical submarine has resurfaced again

Youth unleashed at last from her broken livid page



That needless noon reared the children of negotiated parents

With spotless names they were born

Characters have turned usual metaphors

Denial has finally met disgrace

Bullish Blues


1


Repair my mercy with your silence


Shadow my mirage with your life


Etch my mistakes with teardrops


Bear my moments of selfishness



2

On a night like this flyovers gather to talk


Strangers shower murmurs in the wind


When we swim in needless numbers


Down comes rain and all we cared for all this time are dead again



3


You bore a thousand seeds, my land


You soothed a million listless hearts


You chanted the rainy night moon-song


Over your silent membranes I pull myself along



4

No competition, no virile joke


Neither I fathom them, nor do I reproach


I missed again my rising time


No one will know my undue shine



5

Crying will not help, sow again


As the lights rise from the grey hills


The rugged peaks waiting to be unhinged


From layers of stone growing within
