To breathe life into my Soul

Like a parasite, she crawled beneath my skin,
Into my life, the demon in her dancing,
With the angels of my existence, Meddling,
Trembling, Suffocating, Clenching her fingers,
She pulled me closer, To breathe life into my soul.


-Roshni Rajshekhar Nair



Tired mammal
With battles many
Victory few, Friends none
Stumbled, fumbled, troubled, struggled Soul
Be at peace. Time is near
You are now weak, though once notorious
Farewell. I beg you run. Alarming winds call
You have no place to hide. Emptiness follows you
Your glorious life is here towards the end. Into Oblivion.


-Roshni Rajshekhar Nair



Oh let me bleed, In peace! I say
Don’t talk between my  legs today.
Let my uterine lining shed away
Better let me colour you red as a foreplay
Ahh! Fine. Let it lay.

Roshni Rajshekhar Nair

Until the next…

And with that last gasp of winter,
I buried your memory deep inside
My temporal lobe. Never to be awakened,
Until the next purple Acashia’s bloom
And I shall meet you again, in our barn,
Holding that knit sweater made from green yarn.


Roshni Rajshekhar Nair

Oh, Pheromones!

The lingered sweat from my body
Perfumed the room. 
And his senses desired,
To be drunk in my fragrance,
To kiss my lips and Be gone
For once.
Oh, Pheromones!  

-Roshni Rajshekhar Nair


Crazy, stupid, ugly, Love
I am knackered by your conundrum.
Stop. I’m not yet ready.
Inconsistent. I like being Empty.

In midst of the moonlight
He sat there on the park-bench
Wrapped in a blanket, Alone
And life was nothing less than perfect.bench-1031353_640.jpg

napo2017button1Day 26 and today’s prompt is to write a poem on what future archaeologists, whether human or from alien civilization, will make of us?

‘Open your eye to the future’, greeted the doctor from the 23rd century
Here the sky was the Land, the land was barren, People flew,
And roots never grew. Time itself had travelled beyond space
And human acknowledgement. Out of the black, the space creatures
Breathed in something unnatural, produced in labs,
Green was a colour unknown to these humanly creatures.
The new born child looked into his mother’s eyes
Wondering, astonished, What should he feel? He imagined
Her eyes didn’t connect beyond the relations of the umbilical cord
She didn’t have glitter in those eyes, His father yet another space creature
Seemed like a man from Jupiter. It was the age was of science,
The age was of no emotions of love or happiness,
for no one here smiled, No one knew what laughter is
until today, When those tiny feet wiggled and that baby giggled,
It was a new unearthing and there went the future archaeologist
Insane in search of that new thing called “Smile”.
In search for the history of something named “Happiness”.

I Do Apologise

In the spirit of Earth Day, here is an apology. 


A   P    O   L   O   G   I   E   S
I know you have been hurt, tortured, burned,
I know you had to smoke your own lungs,
I know you had to face my (and my kind’s) rage
I know you’d rather be a no one then be our someone
But here I’m, I do apologise.
I like to drink my tea,
Rub my belly, breathe you in,
Dance in your winds,
Shine in your mahogany coloured sky,
Swim in your portion, set my heart in motion
Without hurting your limbs, I want to swing your arms,
But here I’m, I do apologise.
You said the water is blue, clear, transparent,
I made it red, black, oily, opaque, killing
You said the ice stands strong, for those seals and the penguins,
I melt it down, heat it up, I defied your laws,
I beat you up and You offered me things to dine
I treat you garbage and You offered me a roof
But here I’m, I do apologise.
I wanted to live in harmony,
I wanted you to be in harmony,
But here I’m destroying your peace
Killing you inch by inch, piece by piece
I wish I could stop this, I’m trying to stop this,
I am a mere human, You are a massive body of forgiveness
Oh Dear Earth, I hope you survive, I’ll try not to be hostile
But here I’m. I Do Apologise.
