Besides the point…

How many sides
does a circle have?
I asked

“It depends
On which side it is,
your side
or mine”
she smiled

“Its a locus
of a point”
I explained.

“What’s the point
of that locus”
She frowned
“Its always
distant from
the centre”

She dragged
me close
and whispered
“Here at
the centre,
we are equidistant
from your side
and my side…
isnt that the point?”

I lost
We won


Time lapse…

Oh! the passage of time;
A myth we embrace,
with joy,
with despair;
Slow down.
There are many pains
yet to be explored

Oh! the winds of time;
How you erase,
the caravan’s tread,
without a care;
Slow down.
there are many strangers
yet to be estranged


Its wise
not to irritate them,
let them lie
in the graveyard
in your head
lest you dare
a gruesome game
of russian roulette
with exhumed memories.

As I scrape
the blood and flesh
off my living room wall,
I wonder
how enigmatic it is
that I cheat death
one more time.
