    The shabby toys and plushies in my
    cupboard reposes stashing a handful of
    anamnesis in derisory spaces of the shelf.
    Where credulous silence often plays
    hide and seek with transient kalopsia
    The sofa sets in the living room are adorned
    with carmine Threadbare covers tacked
    meticulously by mother's delicate hands
    I often asked her about the innumerable
    scars on her palms and the ones that
    purloined the pink tint in her fingers.
    And secured with a bright smile, she'd decode
    it as years of her alliance with the kitchen
    knives and Ladles since juvenescent days.

    The sewing machine, roughly three
    decades old, but closer than an inch
    to her heart, embraces the rust on its
    tear stained cheeks .
    Lingering on the same corner of the
    spare room fixing a mirthful grin across
    its face during the day
    And grieving one thousand pieces
    of elegies when the sun departs
    for a ~ s i e s t a ~

    The vacant side of my father's queen sized
    bed permeates a concoction of odour
    reverberating her untimely demise and a
    fragrance spritzing her fabricated existence
    And few romantic novels stacked on a tiny
    shelf of my drawer, half read, inflict frowns
    each time I open it by mistake
    For love had retired bit by bit like changing
    hues of the leaves, since the moment my
    fingers placed white flowers on her grave
    and my weak moth-screams bid a
    farewell to August

    And like a butterfly, I burgeoned
    adamantly leaving the cocoon of
    childhood in silence, cooking metaphors,
    serving poetries and gulping pills of liabilities.
