Embodying Me

Posted: August 20, 2019

While juggling multiple roles, don’t forget you are important too.  Make yourself a priority because no one else will with #KhayaalRakhna

Embodying me



Always in my head, a sense of being distraught

Over- brimmed with one color, an unassuming rust red

Mundane chit chat, litters into afterthoughts

Scribbling screams tethered tight on farm stands


A photo collage experiment, cacophony

Every square inch, a body sucked into vacuum

Calculated planetary moves, leave me a speck in cosmic astronomy

Rendering days into nights, an assemblage of salty atoms


Candles light up, one for each year of my age

Unlearning seasons, attempts to discard my embers into baskets

Become an installation, a garish backdrop to a painted stage

Sharing an affinity, with my demons secret ghettos


Embodying womanhood

Like a leech to the walls of my lungs

Embodying womanhood

In the sores of my incurable tongue

Embodying womanhood

In harnessed flames making bonfires easy to light

Embodying womanhood

Into a debris of embers that crackle

into desires that I can collect

souvenirs line up

for each year
