Tiny Lights

“In my heart,

the embers, they still smolder

like tiny lights on a street

at dusk.”

STARRY SKIES

8e93224cf7e9cff2fb81b95978c48d90.jpg

Laying on a bed of sand,

Ever-changing patterns

Of the crystals that guard-

My body, my soul.

Every time I move,

I yearn to leave an impression

On the world that I call my own.

My shadow has departed

Enabling me to revere

Every single memory

Uncloaked and bare.

I still lay amidst the grains of gold

Cautiously eyeing the

Glistening moon;

My lamenting heart

Attempting to contemplate the-

Synchronicity of my imprudence

And tribulation.

The gurgle and lashing

Of the waves

Echoing in my ears,

Leaving no stone un-turned

To mask the thudding of my

Reckless memories that are rushing

In my mind that remains clogged

And misted and numb.

The wind blowing kisses

To my soul that lay bare

Exposed and vulnerable-

To the audacity of fellow humans

Dancing in my memories

To a tune of their own.

The sky is studded

With resplendent stars

Simulating the flicker of hope

That illuminates my soul

Every now and then.

And here I am

On a bed of sand

Fancying for this

Comforting night

To never end.

Among the wildflowers

PhotoGrid_1537799139336

Between the lines
Under the starry skies
Among the wildflowers
Along the waves
In the arms of nature
Kissed by the rising sun
Embraced by the breeze
I lay beside you
My head on your chest
Our souls converge
On the land of serendipity
Holding our souls
Is the promise of eternity.
~Shambhavi

Lotus

The petals that bloom
Dissipates light in gloom
Rises above the murk
Altercates darkness that lurks
The symbol of purity
The petals of serenity
Divine flower that unfurls
Suffusing universe with love as it swirls.

I’ll Survive

 

20181008_123411_0001.png

Feelings that reverberate
Within like air locked in
the chest- choking;
I graze the surface
of the sea that
you drowned me in,
to taste the reality.
Coughing up phlegm
Of sorrow!
Breathing in strength
To survive.
The spaces in between
my fingers lay vacant,
I miss you.
But, like any warrior
I’ll thrive,
I’ll survive.
~Shambhavi

#10 Truth Of Life: Wild Wild World

Being docile and naive
Is not the key,
To a life you’re living
In a world brimming with
liars and deceivers.
Embrace yourself tight
My dear the World
Is full of monsters
Not the ones who prefer
Cookies, they’re in for
Something more,
That you can never spare
Always be aware of them
Who are lurking around
For they want
nothing but,
Your Inner Peace.

#9 Truth Of Life: CONSCIENCE SPEAKS

1b05e0d7cbcd158590fc71d39b273d84

DON’T DROWN AWAY

Sweat clings on
To the frowns that
Ornament the fore head,
Then
Dripping down onto
A sheet that’s white & spotless
From spick & span
To blotch & patch
Now making a difference
But not later
Likewise a mistake
That clings to your conscience
Then drips onto guilt
Making you sad & miserable
A mind that’s guarded by clarity
From sound & stable
To wounded & unstable
Now making a difference
Not later
Unless you choose
To forgive & to forget
To accept & to de-stress
Choice is yours.
~Shambhavi 

P.S: When conscience speaks listen to it. Change your ways or succumb to the guilt that may eagerly come your way.

Humble Epiphany

PhotoGrid_1525589295560

I’d become my worst enemy
And you left me astray
All I had was me for me
To hold my soul
To hear me say
Bi arms that turned
In to embrace
To hold me while I cry
I sobbed away
Tears washing my eyes
To a new day of life
I’d this new credence
I had fallen in love
With me myself
That’s where I found my way
Into light and no turning back
I’d learnt it the hard way
I’ll have my back always
Fear, You needn’t stay.
