I Lost You


I lost you
Bit by bit
One folly at a time
And with each tear that followed.

I lost you
A little every month
December, May & October
April and again in December

I lost you
Like one loses time
One moment culminating into another
Until one is not left with any more.

I lost you
Like one loses precious hair
Every single day
But thinks it’s okay.

I lost you
Memory by memory
Or may be all at once
You just hid it very well.

I lost you
Or did I?
May be it was you who lost
While I, just loved.


A Pair and One More




By the sea,

On the sand

Our feet entwined

You write on my feet

With yours

In words I cannot define

That I am yours

And you, henceforth,

Are mine.


From You and I

To Us and We

But sometimes,

Less of You,

More of Me

And some other times,

More of You,

Less of Me,

And so,

No more Us, no more We.



Those waves

Just hit the shore.

No barrier of entwined feet

A pair and one more

Just the wet sand

And infinite memories

In my verse, you and I

Continue to live together

Even when reality speaks

A million other stories.
