Ghost Feet

This little poem is about that moment when you long for your better half. In the morning, even when the bright sun has risen, it seems all grey because of their absence. Being habitual of their embrace, and their warmth, your feet feel alone in a bed for two. 

Grey dawns this sunlight,

when it doesn’t seem so right

shuffling fervently two bedsheets,

your warm embrace doesn’t meet

anymore,

doesn’t envelope my two cold, trembling feet.

Throwback Thursday – Exam Special

All those years ago, when writing was part of summer vacation assignments, I never thought I’d pick up on this little habit, and go on to enjoy it so much. Which is why it is never a surprise when I read my kiddish, simple, just happy poems from aeons ago. Those were easier days and blissful was the theme for everything I wrote. Not that I don’t write happy poems today. It’s only a rare feature now.

Although it is basically a list of all the things people do when their exams are over, the excitement is palpable. Just for the sake of Throwback Thursday, a cheeky smile will last on my face all day, proud of what I accomplished with this masterpiece. (Jokes!)

P.S. Don’t miss the cute little “Snap Shut” drawing of a book at the top! 😉

I used to write on everyday things in a sing-song manner. And now I when I pen down something, I make up my own structure and word preference. The poem that I am posting today was written a decade ago. It makes me feel old talking about stuff that I created in 2006, 10 whole years ago. I started maintaining a diary in 2009 and cataloged all my writings,
