Mindless

"I will dance till the bells on my ankle
And the chan chan of my payal
Drown the thoughts spiraling out of control
I will dance till they silence
The screams of war my mind rages
I will dance till I become one among the night"

You care about people
You love them
You give your best
Is it selfish to expect the same love?
Isn't it unfair that you don't get a say in this?
A say in how much a person can give back
But who decides these thresholds?
Who decides when it's too much?
When you bring down mountains
Is it too much to expect
To be not treated like that very dirt?
Who decides how much to expect from someone?
They say, the happiest way to live life
Is with no expectations
But isn't that the most human thing?
To expect?

Try a better joke

Cross-dressing, as a joke, is not funny
The identity of thousands of marginalized people, is not a joke
The choice of clothes they struggled all their lives for, is not a costume
If you have no idea what to pass off as entertainment on prime-time TV,
Do a fucking Knock-Knock joke
As an upper caste straight woman
I recognize my privilege
And yet my blood boils when I see these shows
Recognize yours
It's not that hard to be not offensive
Why don't you try again?
Why don't you just try a better joke?

Love...
Feels like your grandma's saree

I am running
Every single day
Huffing and puffing
Panting for breath
I am running
In a race with no end
No finish line in sight
Just running along the marked path
I am running
In a race which I once liked
But now, I forgot why
I am running
Not knowing who I am up against
Not knowing if there's an option to stop
I am running
In a downward spiral
With an upward slope
I am running a race in which I am not winning
I am running a race where there's just no winning
I am still running

One of these nights
Lights will guide you home
But if the fireplace ran cold
And the emptiness of your home
Daunts you
If it's one of those nights
Stay
With the lights of the city
Stay
Under the full moon's light
Stay
Watching the shining waves of the sea
Stay
If it's one of those nights
When you know the way home
But your feet feel like lead
Not wanting to find home
Stay
The lights will guide you home at dawn
But for tonight
The lights will keep you company instead

It's one thing to miss the taste of your lips
The passion in your touch
The lust in your love

But it's something else to miss the warmth of your hug
The sanctuary in your arms
The presence of your being

The meticulous guide to destroying a man

(Like the evolution of every language since eternity
"Man" in this guide represents all genders
"He" will be the preferred pronoun)

(Major trigger warning)
