Remember September

Leaves are green, breeze is cool and serene

Parrots fly from tree to tree

Light drizzle falls rhythmically

Sky is still cloudy and calm

No lightning to alarm like screams

I remember my friend Tazeen

I miss her smile, soft voice and purity

I never thought she will die so soon

Leave me alone to mourn

Masked faces

Started the year with no clue.

The fever called Covid-19 was not new

It was surfing before last year end

Now we got masked faces in the streets

Robbers are getting away and so are thieves.

You can not catch who you can not see

Nor touch , for social distancing is a must 🙂

Who will we turn to, who can we trust?

No one can find a vaccine or medicine

We are left to die and turn to dust!

Left silently with a smile

Lonely heart departs in fear

No last glances, no smiles nor a tear

Shattered life with a blow unseen

lonely heart is waiting in dream

Hearts are broken when held too tight

I will never put on light for dark nights

Did not destroy nor left me alive

How it pierced like a knife

I am in between a kiss and a dip

Will I get your hands

or will I slip

tries to smile but fails instead

Ask me anything

I will answer right away
may be not truth
or half truth is what I say
yet..ask me anyway
Sometimes a question
is an answer to silence
to a smile
to a feel
that you left behind
Ask me a question
I will remain silent till you go insane
that is a question I never answer
as it would be a mistake
if you find this poetry in confusion
I will stop it right now today
