Will You Love Me The Same?

If I told you I am older Will you love me the same way If I told you I am a cold person Will you love me the same way If I told you all that I haven't told anyone yet Will you love me the same way If I told you I get depressed pretty often Will you hold me the same way If I told you I cannot impress anyone everyday Will you spend time with me the same way If I told you I can be pretty challenging  If I told you I am aging and there are wrinkles under my skin that I hide with makeup If I told you I am not adjusting and don't talk to anyone if I don't have to If I told you I don't dress up on days and eat cereals from the box in a messy way Will you be with me the same way Are you still listening or you have run away If I told you I don't forget easy And can stalk you for days making you feel uneasy If I told you I can be dangerously hunting insects And can jump in muddy water for hours If I told you I am not afraid of blood And I can fight until I hear the sound go t

The Girl With A ZigZag Braid

A baby cries tonight..
Impatiently out of sight.
A troublesome cow denies..
As it struggles to get rid of the flies.
The clouds have darkened..
The farms are abandoned.
This evening is getting calmer than usual.
A boiling pot of tea..
Accompanied by chatter as ritual.
The rain gushes in..
Through the doors inside hallways.
The birds have soar high..
But getting wet as often they try.
Taking cover under a thatched tatter..
Just when the water splashes..
Breaking down the windows they scatter.
There’s a pond visible in the side walk..
Roads soaked in as they talk.
The little boy makes the boat..
While his school bag drifts away.
A mother waits for there’s no more food..
And whatever stored is no good.
The blurry eyes get stolen..
As the houses they built were broken.
Water glistening with the evening shade..
The downpour listening while it tries to fade .
A distant laughter invade…
From the girl with a zigzag braid.

*Dedicated to the people whose possessions got washed away during Kerala floods as they try to restore their dwellings from scratch again.Our best wishes and prayers goes out for each one of you.
