The Samosa Theory

The brain feels like a Punjabi samosa, stuffed with lots of potatoes, peas and chillies, and then fried – the end result put on the table.

Poems

The Night Haunts

Why do I fear
Of exclusion
Of solitude
The dreams I’ve had
Pull me closer to you
But the very fear of failure
Stabs me each minute
And buries my soul in emotions
Of exclusion
Of solitude
Can this night be over
And never return and
Rid the troubles I put myself into
Unintentional but uncontrollable
All I want is to breathe and be closer to you
So I can dream without the fear
Of exclusion
Of solitude
