Canvas

Your face is the canvas
I paint my emotions on
Even if my heart is left
Crumbling black
After your shoeprints.

Drinking Buddies

Glasses of pain
Cocktails of distress
Let’s raise a toast
And day, this round’s on me, friend
Start talking.

Lies, Damn Lies and Secrets

I can see it in your lies
The secrets you spill to the world
Like they’re useless facts
So they won’t poison your insides alone
I hear you.

Storytime

You say you got a story
And I say I know it already
Because I’ve read you before you wrote it
And you ask how it is
And I say
Make me nicer.

Our Hidden Truth

It sees you
Our hidden truth
It sees the games you play
Out of fear and anger and judgement
It plays you
In my eyes, action and voice.

Dreams

Dreams,
Because life is too short for hangovers
And the body, too precious to abuse.

Hyderabad Girls

Where lipstick meets biryani
I say love can be both
Hot-headed and hot-blooded
And you say you’ll be sugar
Long as I’m spice

Escape

In narrow escape routes
Inside games of shame
You hid
Breathing unabashed
And that’s where I found you
Defiant refugees together,
We loved.

#DIYCreativeClub: Hope

Today, the world. Tomorrow, a better phone. For @cassyfry's #DIYCreativeClub challenge. Today's prompt is #Hope Bombay represents one kind of glittering, distant dream for a lot of Indians. It's home to Bollywood. Thousands of hopefuls flock to this city daily hoping to have their words, their voices, their faces or their bodies discovered. Andheri, besides being the city's most populous suburb, is also the Mecca where all tinsel town hopefuls have to pay homage. I spotted this young man hastily brushing his hair into the perfect set using his phone as a mirror. And in a blink of an eye, he turned and was gone, vanishing into the sea of auditions and casting calls and other delightful sharks in my Island City. #struggler #andheri #bollywood #tinseltown #selfie #metrosexual #metrosexualgiveaway #model #aspire #aspirant #actor #artist #bombay #mumbai #twitterpoetry #people #dandy #men #man #boy
