You seduced my blank p a g e s  w i t h a purple                stare Your s c o r e agile —with bare lines, fragile— and a smoky flair * Paper trails going a m i s s during o u r morning                       walks While we kept silent O, u n s p o k e n mysteries— […]

Under the sea all somber rites b l u e l i n e s that twist and gunshot cries Those birds that sing this autumn night all b e a m i n g g o l d all dancing bright These c a r e f u l thoughts your vinyl lips their eerie looks those birds in flight Spreading wings that sail - fair air - this perfect d r e a […]

In Transit

comments 2
Poetry

Willfully silent and opaquely beautiful Like a love affair that fades wordlessly, A two-act word play just hinted at. A fateful page the reader doesn’t want to turn —Lest it blankly shine, so devoid of meaning— A blurry sentence smudged on the mirror —If only they could read it out— Drafts left behind while I was still in transit, Silent tunes I hum to myself, Unwritten plays I, by heart, remember, —And will not dare […]

Blueberry Notes

Last night I travelled to the dream libraries of our childhood summers A pastel-coloured palette, cotton candy, and liquorice o n m y l i p s I imagined fantasy birds, fell in love with new words, And savoured mesmerising s o u n d s * Last night I travelled to the dream libraries of our childhood summers Nina sings to herself while I rub my eyes— still too sleepy A sandy, crisp, and […]

Tender fire Loving, grand, Witless fables— Vacuous S o u n d s Damn his hunger For fast food Callow words And easy D e a l i n g s When all I fancied Was slow-cooked, Spicy lines, And complex M e a n i n g s ! * Wide, wide, windows, Lavish bloom, Pompous, charming, Prosaic, B l a n d Damn his hunger For fast food Callow words And easy D […]

A Twist of Lemon

Poetry

He smiles as I write these words A twist of lemon, some bitter tonic— flowing through thirsty veins * I smile as he draws a pair of eyes The ones that brighten the darkest days of our nocturne souls * Chilly air swirls into our empty space While I get rid of commas, full stops— irreverent aftertastes * It all ends with a styled, stained letter and a twist of lemon— As it gently infuses […]

Silver Mansion

Poetry

S l o w l y , yet oozing danger, a spider trail-blazes the path to her silver mansion The one I, yawning and weary-eyed, visit on sleepless nights I shout— but there is no point in getting bewildered— I’m just tripping / I n t h i s i m a g i n a r y i m p l o s i o n o f m y s l e e […]

Wild One (Collab)

By Secret Bree and Vintage Black With a piercing  stare  and unquenchable  appetite—   I’m one   of the wild ones captivating  and  fierce Slowly  ever so vigilantly you approach  trying to embrace  me with  velvet  sounds    —Casting that wicked  magic  of a   wild  cat  whisperer—    Yet I’m not falling   prey  to your  taming  charms     Inevitably  you’ll fall  in lust   Everything else turning to dust against my sensual verses   Sweaty,  playful-  breathing,  […]
