Insanely sane… Surviving qualmless.

Insanely sane… Surviving qualmless.
I'm not a perfect person, But I never meant to do those things; And so I have to say before I go, That I just want myself to know. I've found out a reason for me,; To change who I used to be A reason to start over new, and the reason is you. I've found a reason to show, A side of me you didn't know; A reason for all that I do, Before I let you go...

A Day without Today.


Temperatures rise codes fail

Lying on the edge senses trail.

The sultry afternoon dawns forth as,

Tripping over the thread I tread

I break the spell that created ‘today’.

Tomorrow is the day, maybe with no today.


The obscure designs magnify

The ones I just noticed now…

Thirty barcodes to the bottle

Some crazy patterns on the palate

The colored stones on the mosaic

Layers of dust on the sill.


They were their yesterday

But my wits then in witty consorts

Diverted the gaze.

When emotions fail to comfort

To them I return

Forever they had stayed

Anticipating my attention.


They come to play now

For you had they not forsaken

They the silent admirers.

Still, I reread the long messages

To whom I had been addicted

Written so that you would stop by,

They are still their

Awaiting your attention

Animate under my care.


I burned them up today

To ease the burns of yesterday.

Nothing is left of you now

Save charred black smudges.

The inanimate have come to life now,

You will be the one

For whom I lived eternally.

But never the one

I died for.


This is my last post this month. I am taking a long sabbatical from this place, this city, this forlorn existence. Something seems to have come over me causing me to be constantly distracted from my typical self. Will miss the space, will miss you guys, will miss the city and my friends. Hope to see you again on return. Till then good-bye, take care.

I wont be able to stay here for C`s birthday, hope she enjoys a lot. Many many happy returns of the day to you in advance dear, and a verrrryyyy Happpy Birthday. :)



Please do read and comment on my efforts if you find this post popping up anywhere near you :P

"You will be the one

An apt end or perhaps a new beginning for the wonderful flow of thoughts. I hope it isn't visceral.

Do find your way back here. :)

I am tired of saying "you play with words very well" and i am left with very less adjectives...

It is very beautiful and the fact is your vocabulary is far better than mine :-)
