Writing for me is therapeutic. Besides literary artifacts I find happiness in cooking and music and capturing the serene beauty of nature on my mobile phone.
I have been a part of many anthologies and now wish to publish my solo poetry book soon. Till then,trying to find harmony in discord as life is a concoction of both!
Once a song that broke my heart.
Once a song that broke my heart reminded me of how life became vitriolic on my sins.
Plunging me into an abyss of penance.
Castigating me for diabolical incivility.
Once a song that broke my heart is now my lullaby.
On a lonely winter night its dulcet tunes beckon me to a world of delusional mutterings
Where peace resides in melancholic corners.
Enmeshed within the labyrinth of disheveled memories.
Peeping through a dilapidated edifice.
Reminding me of forsaken moments
Which were a concoction of torn poetry pages on dismal noons.
When petrichor emanating from the sordid earth
Calmed my oddball mind.
And traversed me to a world of incoherent mutterings.
Looking for fireflies inside empty jars!
