I live in Bangalore, India, and work in a multinational semiconductor company as a wireless systems engineer. I love working on technology but also have a keen interest in literature and fashion. I write poems and design clothes outside my working hours, and someday I want to pursue a career in poetry and fashion as well. My poems are heartfelt and personal and they carry my thoughts and feelings about the world around me.
Let us both play a game today.
Let us each be a sport today.
It need not at all be rational,
Let us just brace ourselves.
Let us both harden our hearts.
Let us both cloud our senses.
We will play with pointed daggers
With which we will etch lines
Dark, serpentine and crooked
Like our morbid tangled thoughts.
We will play with sharp swords
With which along the built barriers
We will cut up lands, rivers and seas
Into pieces we will call mine and yours.
We will then assume positions
Rigid, offensive and unchangeable.
We will hate and clash and fight.
And then with assumed victories and defeats,
We will walk back and farther apart;
Widen lines; etch them ruddier and deeper;
Raise barriers, make them higher and stronger.
Like many games, this will fetch us accolades.
