The grip that felt like home

That very feeling of warmth-

had thawed away

like the wax burning

off a candle,

slowly consuming it all

leaving no trace of its existence.

When it comes to love

We lose ourselves
So quickly, so stealthily
When it comes to love;
Torn between selflessness
And attachment.
We lose ourselves
So quickly, so stealthily
When it comes to love;
Torn between contentment
And fulfillment.
We lose ourselves
So quickly, so stealthily
When it comes to love;
Torn between happiness
And sadness.
We lose ourselves
So quickly, so stealthily
When it comes to love;
Torn between fantasy
And reality.
We lose ourselves
So quickly, so stealthily
When it comes to love.

Rowing away solitary

free-shipping-boy-girl-collecting-shells-impression-seascape-canvas-prints-oil-painting-on-canvas-wall-art

I’m floating in stagnant waters
You are no where to be seen.
We started our journey
Together on a boat
We drowned in bliss of melodies
We enjoyed together
We rowed away;
Happy as people for life
But here I’m-
Floating in the stagnant water
Where your trace is long gone!
You’re aboard another boat
With someone who you adore.
It’s sad you don’t realize what we were
It’s sad that I do
I guess letting go is all I have
With all the strength I have
I’m letting you go.
Good bye dear friend
I’ll just remember the good times we shared
In the past, that made us smile
From eye to eye.
I shall continue to row solitary,
as the ripples fill in
life- into the stagnant water
Of life, that had dulled-
the light in me.

Detachment

Let-it-go

On a divine day,

An emotion made it’s way

into our hearts

Sneaking into our lives-

slowly & steadily;

cajoling with our senses

that are bedazzled

by the bewitching spell of love.

Alluring our hearts to tango

to the beats of amor.

Singing aloud the merry notes

of lost wisdom and blinded trust’

succumbing to the nearly perfect 

fairy-tale ending!

Our love wasn’t ours’ alone

to cease or resume.

You wavered away,

I stood still, while the amor

lingered, suffusing our soul

with pain and distraught

writhing away in pain-

yearning for detachment.

For my best friend

Dear best friend,

I met you when I had no friends
I met you when I was in a foreign land
I met you when I didn’t know how to blend
I met you when I didn’t know that you were there to hold my hand
I met you when I needed a sister
I met you when I was lost
I met you when all I did was just whisper
I met you when I wasn’t aware of the cost
Of our friendship that’s priceless
You’re my sister
May you be happy always &
stay blessed
I wish for you A Happily Ever-After
You’re a beautiful soul
I love you my dear woman
We’ll continue to rock and roll
And to this let’s just say ‘Amen‘.

Good afternoon! Hello fellas! 😃💁💁
It’s weekend already, so get in your best attire and rock the party or wear your most comfortable pajamas and hit the lazy mode, while those working the weekend , have a great day!

I am over the ranting episode I had yesterday. Moving on,
I’ve been nominated by Abhishek for the Black Cat Blue sea award. Perhaps I can write it better because I saw a black cat at the beach last weekend so that might just be the scenario I need to keep in my mind! 😀
I guess I am pretty much gobbled by the rant so please bear with me!

Abhishek, of imockery is a great writer and has really good insight on aspects of life. His way of putting his thoughts into words is enigmatic. Please visit his blog soon if you haven’t already. I am so happy to have him on this beautiful journey. Also, he loves batman so batman lovers you’ve company! Me included! 😀

Thank you so much for nominating me! 

Let’s know more about the award:
