The Reunion

After 24 years, I met most of my mates in India. Even though so many years have gone by, our bond & brotherhood has grown stronger. It’s a great reunion filled with joy, emotions & heartfelt moments. The way we talked & joked around, it was hard to tell the difference from our engineering days, besides the look & physique.

So many years have passed by

But time seems to not fly

The tight hugs and swearing

The true signs of deep bonding

The way we greeted & met

And then we were so crazy wet

The ball in the pool

It was so funny & real cool

The hawaiian shirts & glasses

It was time for lots of poses

The 3 min Maggie session

Where mates shared their passion

Dancing on those Punjabi songs

All we needed were some thongs

The fun with beach volley

Oh yeah, we did see big bellies

The topless picture by the beach

Relived the moment with a twitch

Sentimental songs he surely did choose

Simply touched the hearts on the cruise

We did notice a guy in hat though

He filmed us as if he were a drone

And then those intimate talks

Where we did take those hostel walks

The moments are well captured in the frame

It represents strong brotherhood…

…It’s the Reunion scene

Darkness – the intense light

I was told that after I published Fading Bonds that “It’s sad to see such darkness; I’ve been very very blessed”. I knew that family members would react due to my strong words. I don’t see darkness as something negative. It’s not an attack towards anyone but I need to stand true to myself & my folks. One must have the courage to look deeper without blinking into one’s own eyes. It’s the intense light of a different form. So this poem is my reply. I can feel things will only go silent (/bad) from here. But I don’t care of the consequences, else I would’ve never written such burning poems. It’s about breaking the fake image that has kept the truth hidden since decades under those walls of excuses & stories.

It’s sad to see such darkness (when I express)

I’ve been very very blessed (all my life)
