Silence

That night she heard,
A voice she always feared.
That night she saw,
She was clenched in his claw.
Dream or reality?
It hurt her fidelity.
She had cared too far,
It ripped her apart.
Her soul drowned in pain,
She had cried out in vain.
Murder or suicide?
She couldn’t decide.
So they made the pyre,
And she let them burn her alive.
Afraid of the crowd,
She had shut her mouth.
In a hope for the day,
When silence speaks loud!

Is this how it ends?

Walking down the memory lane today,
I wondered, can you be so close to some one,
and yet not know who they are?
I saw all those pictures of us.
Those pictures you remember?
They hold infinite memories,
Of laughter, of joy, of happiness, of us.

When I first met you,
I didn’t know we were gonna end up like this,
Neither enemy nor frenemy,
Neither strangers nor friends.

Walking down the memory lane today,
I wondered, can you be so close to some one,
and yet not know what they are gonna do to you?
I saw all those pictures of us.
Those pictures you remember?
They haunt me now,
On nights like these, I cry my heart out.

When I first met you,
I didn’t know we were gonna end up like this,
Neither enemy nor frenemy,
Neither strangers nor friends.

Walking down the memory lane today,
I wondered, can you be so close to some one,
and yet so far far away?
I saw all those pictures of us
Those pictures you remember?
They hold so many questions now,
And when it’s too hard to keep in, I scribble them down.

When I first met you,
I didn’t know we were gonna end up like this,
Neither enemy nor frenemy,
Neither strangers nor friends.

But tell me, can you please?
Is this how it ends?

Of Wind and Mountains

A spontaneous plan,
Three ardent soul,
The mountains were calling,
So we started.
Far from ground,
As we reach to the top of it,
I ran towards the edge,
With arms wide open,
Almost wanting to hug the wild wind,
I stood there waiting for it to hug me back.
The wind just caressed my skin
and passed through me,
But I was content in that mere intimacy.
As I know,
It’s their nature to flow.
And then I sat on the cliff,
Staring into it’s depths,
Everlasting and desolate,
But I loved how still it was.
As I know,
It’s their nature to stay.
And I realized,
I’ve met winds that soar high,
And mountains with the deepest valley,
And how I’ve loved them both equally.

Your Melodies

These days,
I have so much on my plate,
I never strive to even think about you,
But like the coffee stain from years long gone,
Your brew is too strong,
Like a deep tan of all those summer vacays,
Your colour stays.
Like a sun burn in desert
Your wounds still hurt,
And like the half learnt lyrics of a faded song,
Your melodies just come along!

Stay

Thank you, like all the other ones,
you pulled me out of this illusion too.
This illusion of living with you!

So there I was, hit hard into the reality again, sitting infront of you, my mind still reviving from what I heard, my heart still thriving to say something, anything!

I gulped a lump of dejection down my throat, It burned my innerself.
Your words still echoing in my head, like a sad song kept on repeat.

I don’t blame you, but I liked it there, the illusion I live in feels a better place, I have you there, laughing with me, caring about me and unlike reality, you stay.

Can I not bring you here? Can you not stay?

The End

On Some days,
I miss you so much,
Your voice echoes in my head.
I picture that curve on your lips,
A small depression at the left.
I smile through those memories,
And some tears I shed.
Remembering how,
On your shoulders
I used to lay my head.
Every path you seeked,
To me it led.
You’d always come to me,
I was always the end.

I searched for you,
In every inch of you left.
I craved for answers,
That you wouldn’t tell.
And Every night as I slept,
A hope in me died.
But I Couldn’t give you up,
‘Cause you were trapped inside.
I wanted to pull you through,
Bring you to life.
So I could love you forever,
Come what might.
And I could be with you,
Till the end of other side.

The Rain

The rain today felt a little too heavy,
A little too heavy to bear,
A gush of wind whispered your name,
And I remembered the moments you were near.
I remembered the rain when we walked through the wood,
The back of the school was where we stood.
I remembered the rain you said you’d walk with me,
for as far as this life may lead.
I remembered the day our hearts danced in rain,
Like it would never pour again.
I remembered the day
You said I love you
And I said I loved you too.
I remembered the rain we parted in,
With a promise that we’ll meet again.
I remembered the rain that made me cry,
For you were long gone, I knew.
And I remembered the rain I waited for you,
The day all of it blew.
I remembered the rain you called,
And the rain you ended it all.
I wish I remembered any rain after that,
For the rain is what I dread.
My heart is cold, may be dead.
But the rain today felt a little too heavy,
A little to heavy to bear,
A gush of wind whispered your name,
And I wished you were here.

And So I Write

I couldn’t express, But I could feel.
I was wounded, and I wanted to heal.
Pain ached through my heart,
Sorrow flowed in my veins.
A deep scar,
A remarkable art.
And at night I cried,
Those tears I couldn’t fight.
And so I write.
The pain isn’t gone
And my heart still aches.
But I wish for the world,
To be a better place.
I found art in pain,
I found colours of ache.
And on days when I am sad and unloving,
I drain my self out.
On a piece of paper,
my heart I encage.
Without this sword,
I couldn’t survive
And so I write.

In Your Arms

 

With the chaos inside of me,
In your arms I find peace.
With all the struggle in this world,
In your arms the fortune
deigns to smile at me.
With all those traitors in disguise,
In your arms I shed my sorrows.
With all the happy times,
In your arms I hold my joys.
With the scorching sun above,
In your arms I keep my cool.
With the thunderstorms outside,
In your arms I inhume my fears.
With the winter chills around,
In your arms I acknowledge warmth.
With all the times I was sick,
In your arms I felt relieved.
With all of this over, one day,
And the world sets me on fire,
In your arms I want to rest in peace.

Insomnia

As the clock hits midnight,
I try to sleep tight.
Hug my pillow
And assure myself
That everything’s right!
But as soon as I close my eyes,
The thoughts flood in.
I lay down with no sleep
And I try not to weep,
For if they here me sob,
They’ll ask why?
And what do I tell them?
For I can’t confide.
It’s the memories,
That I go back to every night.
It’s who I was before,
Whom I cannot revive.
It’s that loneliness,
Which incarcerates me inside.
So I hold my breath
And calm myself down.
I caress my head
And I try to sleep sound.
But they reoccur,
Until I give in
And blame myself,
For every happening!
