Her Smile

Don’t go by her smile—
You’ve not seen the venom hidden underneath.
I could never understand it;
It’s like a puzzle that never can be solved—
Is it endearing innocence or dark cruelty?

Polar Star

It’s been too late in night,
There are no fire flies.
Nothing to light up the dark:
Everything’s gone so quite.

A voice that guided me till now,
Seems to have faded somehow.
I don’t know what went wrong;
Or was it always an illusion?

I don’t want the sun to rise;
It cannot save my life.
I cannot face the light;
Can someone hear my cries?

I search my polar star,
The fight is not over,
I can wait forever,
So close, yet so far.

Xopun

Aabori dhorise kaal-dhumuhai
Xunaali poja’u johi jai
Ovagi aai mur ringiyai
Kotenu herai…

(The theme is about a failed son, who had left his home with dreams for his life but failed miserably. He’s now weeping and seeking redemption)

Symphony

There is some beauty in the silence too;
In the darkness of the night I carve your face.
Your simple words echo in my mind all night through—
Like the crickets’ chirrups, they play a symphony apace.
 
The night is not too long for the dreams of you;
For I have plenty of those— the only guiding light I see.
I find some pleasure in the rejections too,
And in my mind it’s already ‘we’.
