Diamonds and dreams

Diamonds and dreams

Diamonds and dreams in the eyes thirsty,
miles away lies what I look for.
My soul is handful of dust,
but still I wish to cross the Getaway.

Majesty in the sunshine of my day,
distant monsoons I see in every poem.
My heart lives in ruptured illusions,
but still I wish to walk on Marine Drive.

Will I ever reach the borders
of the Arabian sea?
Will I ever visit “the city
where changes happen overnight”?
