Flashback Friday

Flashback Friday: Pride

At the first touch of your trembling lips
Mine breathe cold ice

Gathering strength
Blues meet the eyes.

No universe can satiate
Drowned souls of love’s frostbite

Two zany imperfect outliers
In this glorious moment bind.


I have been posting some of my very first poetry on this blog with the Flashback Friday series. Now I can reach a couple more bloggers and that brings me immense happiness. This poem in particular is one of my favourites, because the theme is so much more contemporary than my others. The theme is experiencing that moment, the second of infinite love that one can feel with the acceptance and embrace of another. I did not start it that way, but it ended up being very liberating. I’d love to know your thoughts on it too.

Flashback Friday: Ultimate Flight

I look for love, for peace, for rain
A drop that forever quenches my pain
The moment of immense bright white light,
My chance of the immortal ultimate flight.

Flashback Friday: Raging Battles

A young girl walks bare feet,
Amongst the gunpowder and debris,
She looks at the bloody bodies, now covered,
She mourns deeply for her beloved.

The world was such an empty place before,
Then came her prince-on-the-white-horse to the fore,
They shared a bond that could last forevermore
The world wasn’t so empty anymore. Continue reading “Flashback Friday: Raging Battles”

Flashback Friday: Secret

Myriad colors and faces in the crowd,

Thoughts, dreams and wishes echoing loud

Find the man most glad, he’s stark,

For he hides a secret most dark.

PS: This one is from my diary archives. I remember penning this forever ago! It’s still remarkably accurate.


This was posted on my blog in July 2016 and received mixed reactions from the ‘crowd’! Because it is a litte dark, it seems like a twisted quartet. But the thought behind it is actually the common thread that binds us all today – that we carry deep secrets within us and yet be social, pretend to be happy and hide behind our smiles to appear normal. If you believe another interpretation of it is valid, I’d love to know.

Flashback Friday: After You’re Gone

Discovering your brown boots
And one by one
All the things you left behind
Books and keys
Clothes and receipts
Crumbs of us.
Some of you and some of me.


I’ve started Flashback Friday to repost some posts because I have a lot more followers than I did last year. It is also a very simple way to reminisce about my state of mind from a year ago! This was a surprise sort of short poem that just came to be because I was thinking about how it is the little things that remind us of the people we no longer have in our lives. It doesn’t always have to be a better half, these verses work for every relationship we’ve ever had that was so close to us. That we see the crumbs of a past frequently every day and we miss that person every single time that happens.

Flashback Friday: Lay Bare

Get me a pale blonde bob,
And suede boots in grey charcoal.

Make me look a little different,
But separate from my soul.

Claw at me with your suspicion.
Try me, I will still be more!

I’m now two souls, incorrigibly different,
I am not the ME you’re looking for.

Learning to love yourself normally takes a while. To accept your flaws, to embrace your quirkiness and celebrate the qualities of oneself come with age. And, till then we try to present a different front to the world.. an artificial, made-up version which conflicts with our true image. If that persists for long, we become two different people, looking perfect but feeling almost empty with our rendition of ourselves.

This was posted in June 2016, and I am reposting this under Flashback Fridays so a lot more people can see this now, leave likes, comments and make my day. 😛

Flashback Friday: Sole Soul

She is aglow with the right vibe,

Exuding through her radiant soul.

Men see only the embellished sole.


I’ve started Flashback Friday to repost some posts because I have a lot more followers than I did last year. It is also a very simple way to reminisce about my state of mind from an year ago! This was a surprise haiku that just came to be because I was thinking about how inner beauty is  much more than apparent beauty that people so revere.

Flashback Friday: Desolate

Languished innards
A rage gains traction.

Putrid with power
Of your behemoth play.

Single swift motion
But a slash and a burn.

One soul surrendered
Broken, two bodies lay.


This was a poem about how heartbreak leaves behind two bodies. Some of my poetry is more profound between the lines than with the words. This is one of them and was posted on the blog on May 29, last year. With the Flashback Friday series, I have been posting some poems and articles I wrote when I didn’t have as many followers so more people can see it now and share their views.

Flashback Friday : Doodle for You!

A first for me, a witty poem. An attempt at being funny, candid and very (very) truthful!

Doodle for you
I’m curvy.
Flavor for you
I’m witty.
Nature for you
I’m rosy.
Lesson for you
I’m funny!

Life with me
It’s peachy!
Loving with me
It’s easy.
Mornings with me
They’re cosy.
Prospect with me
It’s sunny. Continue reading “Flashback Friday : Doodle for You!”
