Urgency in Life


You know those people who are good at being old? Some people do it so effortlessly.
I, on the other hand, don't know how to take care of myself.
I forget to take my medicines when I have a bad fever.
I forget the dietary restrictions.
I indulge way too much in the things I like but are not good for me.

I guess, somewhere deep down,
I don't care about live long and grow old.

I guess, this is why I walk around with this life-must-happen-now look which puzzles people.

Come Back


OK, it's been a while since I've posted here.

If you are reading this, thank you for your time and patience. Bear with my rusty writing, its been a while since I've written, as well.

Food so good that it leaves no room for guilt,

Random letters of sweets-nothings on Monday mornings,

The feel of your lips on my forehead in half-wakefulness,

If this is all I can think of to be blissfully happy,
Why is the world drenched in hatred?
