Please read my latest poem featured in the latest issue of the Indian periodical.
Read it here Dance. This poem is about the beautiful dance a hummingbird weaves with her wings to get the taste of the elixir hidden in the flowers, which is so necessary for her sustenance. Do leave your thoughts in the comment section.
This poem is based on the micro poetry Pain.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you.– Maya Angelou
I wonder why it throbs
aches and hurts like hell
every time that moment passes me
touches me gently
with its fleeting touch
but leaves blisters and scars on
my suppurating skin
shuddering in pain
a moment spent in hell
I wonder why I choke on my words
stammer every time your name
in a passing conversation
I turn mute
and all the
screeching and the screaming
fails to bring out the pain and agony
flowing through my pores
they are left untouched
I wonder why my quill
still bleeds when I write
and words scream and
howls of pain;
they are waiting eternally
/to realize this/
writing about YOU again.

Here is my attempt at the prompt. Do share yours.
Those fleeting memories
scribbled in the yellow tinges pages of my diary
is not meant to be forgotten
those reminders of my past are yet to be
recited on a crimson tinge day like a poem
Those tattered pages are not only laced
and soaked with the tears of your yearning
those footsteps of the mind
are long lost trail of my beautiful journey.
