After the fornight of activity
Cleaning, washing, repairing the broken things at house
Clearing up the clutter of confused minds
Days just sweep by
Celebrating the festival of lights
Much too much activity
For tender bones to align
Friends family togatherness
Joy and delight
Festival drained off my energy
Nothing interests me now
Sitting point blank for hours
Staring at nothingness
I am lazy tonite

Silent Diwali Night

Silent night
Diwali lights
Wishes on watsapp
No neighbors call
Sugar scare
Chocolates rare
Of nuts and raisins
Dates if you dare
Colorful mithai
Nobody shares
Where is the rangoli
Laterns, oil lamp
Where are the children
Their thrill, their claps
Running from loud bang
Playing with sparklers
Throwing hand bombs
Or noisy toy guns
Its just shopping
Crowded lanes
Traffic jams
People on the streets
Going nowhere
Eating junk food
Pizza, hambuggers
No festive spirit
No spending quest
Just silent nights
With blinking lights
Grandparents lonely
No festival to share.

Love Unloved

Valentine day depart with grace
People return to normal self
Love now wrapped in silken thread
Sits on shelf,  lips scratched

Baby howls, there is no bread
Mother runs house to shack
Greedy world wont leave her alone
Must pay a price for favor done
Where is love? A passion flower
For every bloom, desires lust

Murderers plague the city streets
Leaders accept bribe and gifts
Orphans roam naked, confused
Officers bully with ego, pride
Where does one go?
One has no home
Heaven hates you
Justice flawed

Love is such a tricky game
Freedom squeezed
Breathless, lame
You are mine, I am truly yours
Emotions entangled to suffocation

Pure love simply cease to exist
Eye for eye
Kiss for kiss
In this world of empty cliches
There is nothing but
A twist of verse
