Long day Tired bones Muscles spent, To the core A week’s lethargy, Finding it’s way to your heart A soothing lullaby To those chaotic thoughts The caged beast Humming rhythmically No longer hyperventilating Over the next opportunity No rhyme needed No symphony, no sounds You simply want to Run and shout […]Read More Leap of Faith..!
Saturday night. Tea marathon. Fifth re-read of the First in the series. An eleven year old orphan who lived. A half-giant friend. A wonderful Headmaster with twinkling eyes. Two amazing friends. The Mirror of Erised. I show not your face but your heart’s desire. Erised. Not surprising at all, this entity, which kept showing up […]Read More Saturday Nights & The Mirror of Erised..!
Eyes are the portals to a human’s soul, they say. Roam around on a busy street some fine evening and you see so many of them. Staring. Gazing towards nothingness. Inquiring. Searching. For people. For things. For souls? Like minded. Different veined. To go down on a sweet respite trip with. To settle scores with. […]Read More Of Stranger People and Familiar Eyes..!
We live on a lonely planet. Period. Nah, this ain’t one of those late night, insomniac, incoherent headed, caffeine induced conclusions. Neither is this an overdose of Charles Bukowski. This is the sole thing you realize after a quick solo trip. Actually, lonely doesn’t do justice to what it is. Its somewhere between a struggle […]Read More Of Solo Trippin’ & Soul Searching..!
A jagged, out-of-tune song; rumbling, roaring music- Lyrics of sharp, pounding, unspoken words, Like chaotic penance of uncommitted sins: Piercing the caged soul- with every gasping, ragged breath; Unflinching, unapologetic, damning, Numbing void – vacuuming out every little feeling; A thought, your thought- suddenly passes by – I shout: voiceless screams; Eyeing me, it walks, […]Read More Shell..!
The aftermath that comes next to a hangover. You. See, the alcoholic forgot you while he was drunk, when his brain couldn’t process what was happening. When he was weak, so vulnerable. Your thought didn’t cross his mind. But you came back when it was all gone. Or maybe, you are interspersed so deep in […]Read More The Forbidden Sixth Shot..!
Tired bones and broken dreams Emotions silhouetted by unkempt deeds; Rawest desires and the naive, immature pleas Bring them all, bring them to me; That person who thinks you come out too strong, That little failure that shatters you every dawn; Endless puzzles with pieces lost to the wind, Bring them all, bring them to […]Read More Bring Them To Me..!
This moment, out of all the day’s ruckus Hour, minute, second or millisecond; Frozen in time – firm and poignant Like the distant watch tower – Assuring, comforting; And yet, ridiculously fluctuating Like the wind raging against your face- (Feel your wings yet?) Whispering words in your soul’s ears- Untying your knotted, convoluted thoughts; Your […]Read More Frozen In Time..!
Where does beauty lie? One photograph. The Optimist, hopes for the scene on the right to transform into something equal to or better than that on the left; The Pessimist, gives up on the situation thinking “dust thou art, unto dust returnest” (literally and figuratively), and knows not that the raw, barren obstacle is actually […]Read More Beauty..!
Night, some music, some shimmering lights, Wind, and the sea, and us – just us; In this void, chaotic vacuum, Words you whisper, Heard by my soul – over the vast ether; And I wonder gazing over these ‘long-distance-troubled’ hapless romantics, How distance never bothered us, I yearn for you and you “wave” back – […]Read More Lunatic Love..!
