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.

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

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.

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.

MOONSTRUCK

A curve set high
Up in the dusky skies,
Amidst the blue-ness of the clouds;
Complementing the mood
Of the night that’s just
About to set!
The skies that smiles be-jewelled,
The stars they are in full bloom-
Charmed by the glistening moon.
Aroused by the dimly illuminated
Night, consumed by the sound
Of the lashing waves against the shore,
Setting the universe ablaze
With the passion that
Now circles the sky.
I lay amused:
On a bed of sand
Enamored by the sublime
Essence of tonight,
Enthralled by the beauty
Of the moon.
