When we say Yes

Saying yes has so much power. It gives hope to our dwindling thoughts and brings silence to the endless tirade that chaotically infests our minds. Saying yes is beyond mere intent, and is a demonstration of faith we bestow upon someone we put our trust in. That someone whose hand we can take without any second thought, and leap into a world of the unknown with a beaming smile.

This Time Around

This time I will refrain the words of comfort I used to abundantly display, 

impede my feelings that often used to surge in copious amounts,

efface all questions that my curiosity
used to possess

tarnish every thought that demanded you
to do things in certain way

This time around I will exhibit patience,
accept you without any preconceived riders,
be there whenever you need someone to talk,
never disappear, even when silence is all you have to offer

This time I’ll let my heart know,
that forbearance will one day open doors,
and maybe one day you will tiptoe back into my life
when we’ll find our abode
which once we dreamed of together
in the fold of each other’s warmth

Tenderness

Her impassive visage is the reflection of a torrid past. And then he arrived demonstrating a sense of urgency, further pushing her down into some convoluted cocoon.

But then he learned that for souls to heal one needs to show patience. He realized, her decrepit soul needs tenderness. Only then her haggard appearance will slowly convalesce under the warmth of his thoughts. She shall then break free with boldness in the comfort of their mutual beliefs.

Deciphering this Enigmatic Life

The listlessness, 
the emptiness,
the yearning,
the longing,
often we are crowded in such emotional turmoil without being able to comprehend why?

Why do we long to meet someone?
Why do we fall in love with people who we know will only give pain?
Why are we nostalgic about the past that is engraved deep in our hearts?
Why do certain places keep reappearing in our conscious mind, making us restless all the while?

The answers to all the whys are hidden in the depth of our souls.

When we don’t learn to be content with what life has bestowed us.
When we blind our soul with an imaginary beauty that pretentiously shimmers a tad more than what we possess.
When we fail to look within ourselves.
When we yearn in the past and remain anxious for the future.
When we don’t accept the moments, which is here and now.

Then it leads our mind to unattainable desires, making us perturb and anxious.

Let us shed away all such illusions and enjoy every moment of this beautiful thing called life.

Love Failed

Those promises we made holding hands, 
and the love we saw in the eyes
that was never going to end,

when we enjoyed the summer breeze
dwelling in love
and swelled in the winter warmth
flowing through your voice,

the songs that we hummed in unity,
the poetries I wrote
praising your beauty,

the care we deeply felt
in each other’s thoughts,
the prayers we offered
drenched in love

All those promises,
the seamless love,
the touch of summer breeze,
the warmth of winter thoughts,
the songs we hummed,
the poetries that rhymed,
the care we felt,
the prayers we made,
have betrayed our souls,
for the endless love
has become transient,
and the silence now screams
with an eldritch tone

Loving without condition

When you love her 
without carrying the burden of
creed, prejudice or judgment

when you embrace her
just for who she is,

when you include her in your life
without any hidden agenda
or vicious expectations,

when you stand beside her
regardless of what she has done
or not done

when your heart always brims
with joy for your love,

when you shower her
with empathy, humility and joy

When you celebrate every moment
because you are blessed
to be in her life

Then your deeds become effortless,
and with an ethereal feel
you reach the Eden of elysian

And for such love
the universe,
the celestial bods,
the firmament above,
the seers,
the gods,
all conjures
to make your pious bonding
the true testimony of gorgeous love

Dilemma

From the corner 
of your heart,
in the crevices
of your gaze,
and from the quagmire
of your turquoise thoughts
you watch me,

and though you desire
to dwell in the summer rain,
and submerge
in the warmth of the cold sea,
you refrain

and hold your reach,
making the two of us miserable,
and the yearning remains interminable
amid our desirous soul

Crashing Dreams

The dreams crashing one by one 
falling like sheets of ices
dissolving in the abyss
of the deep blue sea
and the clamor that remain behind
though receded in a trice
yet its eldritch voice
echoing for a lifetime

The Vacuum


The silhouette of her desires 
shadowing my thoughts 
from dawn the dusk 

and when her words 
spoken in yore 
brushes my desirous soul 
the vacuum that exists today 
discovers itself 
with a crashing clamor 

as if the Elysian we nurtured 
not too long ago 
has come crashing down 
and the splinters 
of your absence 
piercing my existence 
inch by inch, 

the blood refusing to recede 
is now smearing 
my world 
one drop at a time 

and in such agony 
the  irony remains 
I still yearn for you 
with a pensive smile

Desire

Every unsaid word

that leaped from your heart

is now paused as a thought

ogling me from a distance

with a desirous drawl

raring to erupt

but arrested on your labium

like some amorous smile

Portraying the longing

from some anarchic times
