Like a scarlet leaf caught on the east wind
I loitered aimlessly, wherever the life took me
Before I could touch the ground, you came
Came in like a hurricane and blew me away
Away with you, to the skies,
Skies, where I thought I didn’t belong
My illusion faded to reality
As I stood holding your hands
I got lost in your eyes,
drowned in your gaze
Just to find myself.
On this special day, I confess
I confess that I am yours, every bit of me
And I promise, you will be mine
As long as you want
Hold my hands and walk with me
Let the void swallow us
Let us drown to the place we want to be
Let us drown in tomorrow
The air stopped twisting around him
And the lonely house appeared suddenly
The eerie silence pricked his heart
The flickering light scared him more
He slowly touched the broken handle
And pushed the door open
His eyes finally fixed upon her
His heart crushed, head swirling
Looking at her lifeless
“This can’t be it, this isn’t true”
He didn’t have the courage
to look at her
He took her by his lap
He couldn’t lament
He was the reason, for everything
As the memories flashed
He hugged her tightly
Beside her lay her son
Petrified, with no idea
No idea he won’t see his parents
He slowly crawled towards him
“You are mine Harry,
You have me.
I’ll give you the love,
which I couldn’t give Lily.”
As the tears rolled, he looked at her
“I’ll put my life before you
And protect you come what may”
He affirmed, as he kissed her for the last time
Written on the memory of Alan Rickman, on the day he left us
There is something inside all of us,
which tells us , it’s not all right
sometimes we wish it to be false
we convince ourselves otherwise.
Sometimes we take a leap of faith
A leap which could shatter us if we fall
but we convince ourselves
that we can fly
higher than ever
And sometimes we are wrong
all our wishes shattered
crippling us, suppressing us
At these times all we need
trust in us
For which I don’t have the courage
or the strength in my heart.
I stopped balancing with my walking stick
panting, I touched the banyan tree,
the very tree where I met her
my mind raced, back when it happened
the church bell rang, everyone rushed
out of the classroom, it was chaotic
I ran towards the woods, as always
I love the woods, the trees, the birds
they are closest to whom i can call friends
I daily play under the banyan tree
as I took the ‘Z’ bend, I saw something
something so beautiful, more beautiful than the woods
I stopped with a jerk. she slowly turned back
her eyes, so deep so bright! it lured me
she gave a mild smile, extended her hand
‘Hi, I’m Anna” she said
say something, I told my self, nothing!
my mouth froze. time stopped right there
“I- I’m M- Mike” I stammered.
She replied with a smile and started climbing the tree
“Do you want to join me?” she asked.
my whole life changed since then.

Writing101 Day IV
her laugh, pierced like thunder
I was human – my heart feeble, weak
was crushed into million pieces
I wandered like a tramp,
going to places where we have been,
from the bridge where we first kissed,
to the church where we first met,
I loved her, more than myself,
I loved her when she lost her hair,
when she got black spots,
but she wouldn’t listen, wouldn’t hang on
selfish as she was, took every single
ounce of my life with her,
leaving only her memories behind,
painful, yes, but beautiful.
as the night crept by,
the guilt slowly swallowed me, tears rolled
I was lonely as ever.
The east wind lifted her hair mildly,
she turned towards me,
As she flicked it back into its place.
She gave a cute smile,
The one responsible of all this.
We walked holding our hands.
Nothing mattered except the present,
Not a single memory of the past,
Not a single thought about the future.
She had me and I had her.
As the steps progressed,
The outside world started to blur,
She looked me in the eye,
And kissed me softly.
We walked towards the horizon,
As we started a new story,
The story of love, The story of us.
Something was wrong,
I didn’t know what,
I haven’t felt this bad for so long.
My heart longed for a reason,
Just one, just one would be fine,
I thought and thought and I got none.
Everything around me looked gloomy,
even the moon looked so angry,
Am I a betrayer, I really don’t want to be.
She dawned on me like a morning sun,
Her brightness making me blind,
I never knew the dusk was near,
Silently she vanished making my life dark.
Waiting for the dawn I fell asleep,
Will she ever rise again??
Was a question in my dream.
