Would like to conclude the month of love on a high.Would you?
I’m breathing you in
taking puffs of you
and making clouds.
I’m drunk on you
intoxicated by your love
with wine-stained lips
I’m calling out your name
Can’t get more of you
seeping you into my soul
churning my love out.
I’m high on you
Am feeling dizzy
dreaming of us together
in squeals of joy
and drenched in
your wet kisses
Stained with the ashes
of our burning together
in the throes of passion
sharing the drag
addicted to you
turning the illusion of love
With those dreamy eyes
in a blissed-out body
Who needs a puff, anyways
When I’m high on you, baby.
I'm trying to balance these words on the tip of the lead so precariously where they tip and falters and every single word, every syllable every article loses its balance it's epicenter and starts falling off falling off at the edges in the deep abyss of the unknown where I can't seem to salvage them anymore they … Continue reading A Writer’s fear

Do you feel like a misfit?
Cut from a different cloth
lives in a different world
his thoughts are from a different era
he is very different from us
Not a part of the herd
stands out for himself
doesn’t belong to a flock
follow his own tune
can never be a party pleaser
Can never be owned
has a mind of his own
his personality has a different style
he surely will end up alone
Lives life in his own stride
won’t bow down to anybody
can never be an apprentice
an eccentric, an oddball
He is just, plain and simple finicky
He has his own clan
a misfit between us
a bohemian at heart
or hopeless romantic
He is a loner, a survivor
He isn’t a you or me
How many ways have you been labeled before
If you don’t fit in the society?
We are all together in this alone in every path you see I see you and I turn away my face the pain is too much and to acknowledge it will bring Oh! so much disgrace let's just hide it tuck and nip it in the bud don't let anyone read your fear get back to … Continue reading Irony

I’m so excited to be part of the feminist literary collective Whisper and the Roar. The very essence of the collective defines every iota of my personality. Go, check them out.
You are clipping
to suit your needs;
you are breaking
to fit me inside a
just so you please;
tightening the strings
to make this puppet dance
to your tune wildly;
You are bending
my emotions to
suit your needs;
you are choking
so you can save
some air for
my bones are brittle
but I have an iron will;
you can bend me
but can’t break me
like molten lava
but I have the strength
hidden in me;
I give birth
to new lands
and can melt
in a blink of an eye
I’m an avid reader who loves to sing, an ardent lover of poetry and sometimes can scribble few lines…

My first anthology. Which sin are you accused of?
Hello, my blogging family,
Recently I started working on my anthology of poems about the seven deadly sins. However, it started with me writing a poem about jealousy and while I was nearing the end of it, it just crossed my mind to do the whole series about the seven deadly sins. I’ve never worked on an anthology before and this is my first humble attempt, so I’m really apprehensive about it. As always, I expect the support and constructive feedback from my community, which makes me a better writer by each passing day.
I’m planning to publish a poem daily for the next seven days.Hoping, I would be able to live up to the expectation of my readers.
As I keep publishing, I’ll keep updating the links to the posts below.

Come read the secret potion to fight the Writer’s block.
Having been writing since I was a tiny tot I’ve encountered many bouts of the thing serious writers dread the most: writer’s block. I can say to this day that I have about five “books” made of stapled paper with my scraggly 6-10 year old writing, and I never finished a single one. I have a 40,000 word novel-in-progress that I typed up in 2014 but scrapped because it was half-plagiarised (yes, I’m admitting I stole some ideas 😆) and sounded terrible. I also have over 10 word documents on my desktop with stories I started but never finished.
So I’m going to share with you the secret tricks that I use to combat writer’s block
- Read. Always always continue reading regardless of your ‘blockage’. It doesn’t even have to be in the genre you write in. For me, my daily reading comes in three parts: a novel of…
