I detested her presence,
And erased all her lingering essence,
Pushed away the reveries,
Shoved all the beautiful memories.

And after the ardent toil,
And battling with heart’s embroil,
I did a final search,
Doubting every possible lurch.

And to my dismay,
I found impressions of her name,
Casted on my mind like a permanent frame,
I tried hard to,
erase it all,
But when I failed,
I forced it to stall,
I wrapped my thoughts in a burning flame,
And from that moment,
things started to change.

Her shadow got dissolved,
And her image from my mind were finally absolved,
My mind was free from her humming sound,
And I was happy i found my newfound ground.

But when I was about to set free,
She appeared without any decree,
The wraps were gone,
The flames got doused,
Layer after layer,
She gently roused.

You could erase thoughts and assume victory,
But when the soul was consumed,
The heart would always be an open confetti.

She was,
Slowly but surely,
One step at a time,
Crawling away,
From all miseries and pain,
And from the precarious thoughts,
That put her in some entwined chain.

And now that she had escaped the cage,
She lost the past rage,
Her focus was on her new abode,
one brick at a time, cultivating hope,
Though the path was rough,
And it was not her playing trough,
But it didn’t refrain her to aspire,
For she had her world, she had her desires.

What You Made Me To

The harshness of the snow clad mountain,
The ruthlessness of the wintery blizzard,
The brutal ice cold brittleness,
All looks heavenly,
When you witness from far.

So, I warned her to –

Watch me from the distance,
Cherish me from a length,
Feel me remotely,
For if I am within her,
I will be a pain.

And I told her –

I am a restless soul,
A wanderer with protrude knoll,
My touch have edges that is rough,
My rolling tongue spells gruff.

But, she didn’t listen

And approached me with fervor,
Held me close in her arms,
Made my jostled soul to quiver,
And baffled me with her charm.

And then I found

I was not the boulder I claimed,
Nor was a blaze that couldn’t be framed,
And with the passing time,
the rime eased to a soothing shine.

She ploughed my fallow heart inch by inch,
And I transformed to a loving being.

Every time I meet you, I meet you for the first time. Every time you have a new hue, exude desirousness and trace of abstruseness. And every time I am left with the desire to know you more than all the previous time.  You are an alluring dream, a hazy occult, an impulse that is enigmatic and arduous to behold.

I met her through my writings,
Found her through my prose,
And in some enthralling moments,
Discovered a beautiful soul.

Dazzled in her beguile,
within you she gradually grows,
broken heart smiles to glory,
A gleam that always glows.

Her thoughts could dissolve anxieties,
And her presence coerced those smiles,
I am captivated in her abstruseness,
As her contagious beam spread for miles.

The ensemble was set,
So was the symphony,
And I sat there agape,
Allured in her harmony.

Beyond Reach

The universe was within her
The morphing moon,
The endless galaxies,
The astral brightness,
She consumed them all.

She was a force,
A rebel without remorse,
She lived per her terms,
Rules were never her concern.

She danced to her tunes,
She was a God’s blessings, a boon,
A deviant force
Like some mysterious rune.

No boundaries could confine her,
Limitations couldn’t deter her,
neither could hold her to any decree
And she soared achieving the impossible,
Abolishing all creeds.

The wind,
The water,
The elements,
She had all,
The universe was within her so was the world.

Urban Girl

You are fearless,
You speak your mind,
You are what life beacons to,
A refreshing delight,
You are the urban girl.

You appear rugged,
But have a tender heart,
It takes a man to know you,
Pity others who missed the sight,
You are the urban girl.

You are ingenious,
You experiment with life,
You challenge the usual,
You hardly hesitate from being strife,
You are the urban girl.

Break those shackles,
Detest domination,
Spread your wings,
Start a revolution,
My urban girl.
