Shhhh..... Do not speak Listen to the Silence Whispering in your ears Words of wisdom To wake you from the slumber Castes by the spell of Reality's lies Rise from the nightmare You believe to be life Living awaits your return By the bed side. Shhh...... Do not speak Pay no heed To the songs of Sirens That has made you captives of greed. Hear your thoughts It's through those waves Your being tries to reach your body To lead you to your needs. Shhhh.... Do not speak Learn to listen For you learn When you listen The secrets that are never spoken Yet are floating in plain sight Only to be perceived by the seeking eyes.
Let's not go down memory lane For we may not come back sober But drunk with pain we caused each other And things will be back to the first squre Of the entire grid that we have crossed Or rather somehow,just stumbled across To stand in this square, together,once again.
Let's not fight,cause it felt nice Talking to you once again tonight All of a sudden I wish to hold you tight And be the source and sink of each others strength Dare to tell me you do not feel the same ?
Let's not be teens,for we were fools back then You physical and me emotional Maybe our grown up depression was meant To bring us on the same page But here on let us just be kids Frolicking in the sun Falling on the grass Drinking the rain And licking our hands Tasting all the fun we ever had Relishing those flavours once again!
Everyday I tell her Not to remember your dimples. Everyday I tell her Not to find those crinkles, Your eyes created While the smile wrapped itself, Intimately around your lips And the first nail of my coffin was hit!
Your heart is stuck in someone else, And mine I have left in your closet. After all the time that has passed I am still staring, At the empty mug to hold just a drop, A drop to satisfy this craving Or maybe just to forget this thirst. Thirst,quenched not even by the elixir, Elixir that saved the life But could not fill the emptiness in it Could not give it a meaning to be lived.
All I need is a bit of you, But sigh! I can have that never. Yet I love you Just the way you love her Someone said it right- One sided love holds an alien kind of peace, Peace in the pleasure offered by pain, Pain that I, so passionately chase.
In the morning, I woke to this sky that was white Brightly lit by the sun's light. Then the temperature rose, So rose the water droplets in the air And now my sky was a soft blue Reflecting all that came its way. The show ended with all hues, White,yellow,red,orange,blue Creating unparalleled balance of confusion and grandeur Just like it had planned to. Then the sky was smeared and smudged with black Just like the tired,innocent face of a child After an entire day of play. But the cold night is made warm And it's emptiness filled With the bright bold moon, that radiates Like the red round dot between the jet black brows. The tiny sparkling stars Like the sandalwood paste on a bride's face Shouts in celebration for all the greatness it has witnessed.
But sometimes without any rhyme or reason The sky turns grey, Like most of the time is my mood. I thought it would rain,but it turned out to be like me too. Sometimes the grey is too long The clouds too big. And they collide like warriors Producing sparks from their swords. Thus comes the lightning,the expressions on my face. The thunder follows close,where I raise my voice. Then finally it breaks,never into drizzles But always a stromy rain Causing destruction Claiming life's on its way. Now I have finally realized It's better to have a drizzle every now and then To cool the soar,instead of deepening it any more With either the flood or the drought
Where the wind ruffles my hair The rain kisses my lips The sunrays embraces to keep me warm And the serenity makes me break into a song Or just a simple humming and wiggling Where I can lie on the grass to catch my breath And for hours watch the birds fly And watch the kids play Where the innocence once more beats in me That I run up to them just to taste the shear joy in playing Where I can spontaneously plunge into a river and then decide Whether to drink it's purity or drown in it's abyssal depth Or just watch my reflection on its glistening surface And drift off to distant thoughts with the shepherd's kulning Where the farthest stars lead me to my deepest emotions Where the silence of the dark night awakens my soul There I'll make my bed On the grass under the sky And not sleep a wink For I'll be already living in my sweetest dream
