Twenty minutes pass.

We're still in each others arms.

My tears soaking your hoodie.

I hear you gasp for air.

I feel your tears on my skin.

This is it. Our final hug.

As soon as we let go it's over.

No turning back, to what once was..

Is that why we held on so long?

To prolong our ending?

I kissed you for the last time and let go.

For the last time I saw you leave my place.

The door closed, and our relationship with it.

Left are scattered memories and moments.

Our story's over, our time is frozen from now on.

No future, only flashbacks.

The Law of Karma is very deep
As you sow, so shall you reap
The bad you do will make you weep
The good that you do, you get to keep

It's a Law of Action, a Law of Reaction
It's a Law that says you get what you give
A Law that ensures what goes around comes around
A law that's for everybody on this ground

The Law of Karma is born from your Dharma
It's a Law, a Universal Law
A Law that watches all your actions
And a Law that ensures the same reaction

If you plant tomatoes, you won't get mangoes
If you plant cactus, you won't get a rose
So also if you do good, your reward will be good
And if you do bad – what returns is just as bad

What is this Law of Cause and Effect?
A Law that ensures the balance is perfect
A Law that records everything you do
Good or bad, it must come back to you

But how does this law work, we don't know
It belongs to the One who created this show
It controls how on Earth we come and go
Does it end at death? The answer is NO!
Our Body may die, but our Karma stands by
We CAN escape our Karma – that is a lie!
Our Mind will be reborn to live and to die
We will continue to suffer and cry

Death is not the end; it's just a bend
Whatever we have done has to be undone
If our actions are rewarded as we live – that's great
Otherwise, the residue will decide our next fate

Is our body responsible for how we act?
No, it's our mind that's in charge, in fact
Thus, the Law of Action is that of the Mind
It's a new body that the mind does find

It carries the good and the bad that we do
The score doesn't settle at death when we go
Life after life, the score goes on
The score decides how we are reborn

So should we suffer again and again?
When will we finally escape this pain?
We can if only we Realize the Truth
We must get to the bottom; we must get to the root

What is our purpose of life on Earth?
Are we just born to die and take birth?
Where did we come from? Where do we go?
The Law will go on till the Truth we know


Are we the Body? Are we the Mind?
Are we the Ego? The Truth we must find
The ignorance that's around us, we must rewind
We are Energy of a different kind

The Law of Karma makes this world go round
It's a Law that makes sure all's well on the ground
The Law is for all who come and go
Except for those who understand the show

Those who realize we are not the body or the mind
Those who are able – the Truth to find
They are the fortunate few who escape from action
For them, there is no Karma, no Law of Reaction

When bad things happen to the good, don't blink
It's the Law of Karma in action, just think
If you plant a seed, you will face the deed
For what you do will come back to you

If you want to master the Law of Karma
You must realize that the world is a Drama
You must know you are not the body and the mind
Then True Joy, Bliss and Peace you will find

What is Karma? It's the Law of Action and Reaction. Read AiR's thought-provoking take on the Universal Law that governs us all....!

There's something in the air
Sounding similar to a symphony
World sheds melodic raindrops
Look at the downpour and see

It is as if I'm hallucinating
All the tears I've ever cried
The sky my martyred substitute
Weeping loudly open-eyed
I don't write about nature much but when I do it usually ends up relating back to my feelings anyways somehow..
How do you breathe?
With lungs full of smoke,
My throat all scratched up and torn.
The lips of my lover kissing me with those eyes,
Yet his lungs breathe the chilly air.
I brace the break between our parting lips.
My dear,
Those eyes help my lungs remember the air I used to know.
Baby I’m afraid to say I love you.
Oxygen
Is everywhere
But we only know
We're Breathless
When it is gone
You
You are you,
In my life a dream come true.
Like a wisp of fresh air,
Sweet and fair.
Morning dew,
My broken heart you glue.
A breathless breath
My soul you bathe.
A soft beat,
My heavenly treat.
My everything,
Without you I am nothing,
With you I am something.
Once I sleep In a sleeping
over looking the sea
to wake In the morning
mist rolling off the
sea, traveling Inland on
the wind
The smell of the salt sea
air, seagulls flying around
In search of the first meal
of the day
Dew on the grass the crisp
clean air, cooking eggs and
bacon on a camping
stove
A mug of freshly made coffee
roll up sleeping bag then to
go search of a new
day
When I young that's what
freedom was about to go
where you want, sleep In
place of your own choosing
"freedom"
Too old now but when young to me sleeping bag travelling that's what freedom was
about.

Smoking out my window.
Crisp autumn breeze.
Candle barely alive.
I swear to myself.
I’ll have to let you go.
But just like the smoke I blow out.
It always comes back in.

Butterflies
born when i looked at you
love seems to be in the air
