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

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

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

The Untold Story

Between the what if’s and if then,
reasoning and questioning,
doubting and resisting,
a beautiful story died before it could born

Courage

I wonder what is more difficult to brace, the aftermath of a silent goodbye or deciphering reticent thoughts and embracing adieu

That smile

She lived her life through the vicarious imagination of her childhood days and that beaming smile said it all

Divine Bliss

My eyes often search for you in the horizon,

for between the feathery clouds and the sparking hues,

against the backdrop of the snow-clad mountains and the cerulean skies,

in the crevices of the crimson red and amber skies,

your thoughts float with divine bliss

Pensive View

Another moment has gone by without your presence another moment I spent weaving a story about us

Sadly

His words slipped in the midst of a rage
and she held it close to her heart,
brewing it till it became a rife,
alas! those were the only thoughts of him she kept
discarding every good deed he offered throughout his lifetime
