He said don't boil the ocean
I left the room
Drained my coffee
Poured in some wine
And got ready for a fight

For all the days you kept me distracted
And all the nights you kept me awake
This distance seems like a fair punishment
For making an innocent mistake

All your questions
Came packaged with intentions


Yes, I see right through you

"Where are you from" is trigger question for me. It triggers a flood full of memories of being different versions of me. When traveling outside Delhi, a simple one word answer "Delhi" is almost always sufficient.

But when I want to tell people of Delhi, how I from the city, I chose different answers. If I was in North/North West Delhi like Jahangirpuri or Kamla Nagar, I tell them I was bought up in Model Town/Priyadarshini Vihar and Rohini. When I am in Central Delhi, I relish about my Nani house memories from Daryaganj. When I was in Okhla, I talk about being born in Saket and also about living in Malviya Nagar/Green Park since last 2 years. On a rare occasion that I am in Gurgaon, I brag about my South Delhi pincode and being neighbours with Big B.

It's beautiful how one person is an amalgamation of so many places and their experience. It is equally ironic that I feel out of place in most places in Delhi. Except when I am in a cab, constantly moving and picking up pieces of this city, just enough to relate but never enough to belong.

What do you call
The fear of losing someone
When they were never yours
To begin with?

When all you keep doing is moving
But all you want to shout is STAY!

When you say I don't look married
Were you thinking of fixing me up with your boy?
Or were you expecting a little one clutching my hand and a toy?
Oh, you meant to compliment me for my figure
Knowing my health, I'd ask you to reconsider.
Maybe you assumed I was single from the hair colour on my head
Trust me, there far more greys under that brown and red
Did it occur to you that not all married women wear bangles and bindi?
And some single women may even wear these because they look trendy.
And of course, a ring in my ring finger wasn't an indication
Wearing diamonds and gold are part of our Indian tradition
Maybe my jokes and laughter gave it away
How can someone married for 4 years be so chirpy and gay?
Okay, alright, this time I give you the benefit of the doubt
But next time, should I announce my marital status on the mic or give a handout?

Leaving a city in the middle of the night
Is like saying goodbye to a lover
When you don't want to fight!
