I Left My Heart in Istanbul

I Left My Heart in Istanbul

Listen to the Spoken Word version of this poem I left my heart in Istanbul, On a late March run, amidst the clouds and the Sun, I left my heart in Istanbul, On top of the Galata Tower, Inside of a chic apartment in Beyoğlu, Amidst the very alive Taksim square, I left my heart. [...]

Lines

Lines

Sharp, edgy like her glances, She swiftly moves her seductive eyes to the other corner of the room, Trying to hold back her desires. Soft, round like her voice that can melt his heart. “What do we do tonight, my lover, Where do we go? How much time do you need to explore, The taste [...]

My Song

My Song

The momentum - solemn stillness holds, Lifting up my spirits, high, High above the blue sky; in form of rays from the Sun, It shimmers like a thousand fireflies, Up, high above the sky.  I hear the sound of solitude, ringing into my ears; Telling me the tales of love, Almost impossible to recognize my [...]

Nami/Anna

Nami/Anna

“Nami”- Not that I hear anybody calling me that anymore but that doesn’t mean I don’t know how it feels to be called “Nami” He’s not around anymore but that doesn’t mean his voice doesn’t ring into my ears like before. It finds me when I’m at my most vulnerable, lying on the floor. It [...]

Waves

Waves

I’ve lived my life around waves, Yet I’ll drown in them. I’ve learned to love around waves, Yet I can’t trust them. See, how they break their ways on the shore, Like my heart on the mend. Their calmness haunts me till this day And I get shivers due to their roars. Waves tell me [...]

Roma

Roma

Listen to the Spoken Word version of this poem *** I met you on a starlit night, Under the glistening beams of a half-faced Luna. I knew we were meant to be, It was as if the stars aligned and brought you closer to me. Roma, I fell in love with you, Will you stay [...]

Tiramisù

Tiramisù

Cozy; the familiar taste on my tongue As it swirls inside my mouth I go for another turn. The smell of coffee and that rich, thick, heavenly sensuousness, Oh! Tiramisù will be the death of me. I go licking it time and again Taking every bit that might have been left That mascarpone cheese, I [...]

Souls

Souls

The roaring waves of the seven seas, Come undone the bond in between, Lovers we have known for long, Their love has become song For those yet to come, Generations, Bond of souls, Not of Skins.

Romancing the Blue

Romancing the Blue

Wrinkled, parched amidst the desert, Cautious with a little conscience He's the one who cooks! Schwartz out, desperation in, Turning the man into a wizard. What he makes, can show you places, You've never been. The crystal can make you feel Like anything. Who could’ve imagined him, The man with that hat, And with those [...]

Escapade

Escapade

The scorching Sun upon my burnt-brain, While I keep my gaze on the dry leaves, I stumbled upon her imagination, Unruled, scattered, But amongst the things that kept her sane.   She doodles on her little notebook before her afternoon nap, Keeping her tiny head and big hair on her grandma's lap. This is the [...]
