Tomorrow

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
Towards eternity,
Let the void swallow us
Let us drown to the place we want to be
Let us drown in tomorrow

[Alternates] The road not taken

I shall be telling this with a smile
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood and I –
I took the road less taken,
Or I took the one most taken
It makes no difference whatsoever
In the grand scale of things,
Not the road, but YOU matter.

Painting

It’s my thoughts, my emotions

My life, diligently painted

Dot by dot

I put the brush away, and stared

As everything fell into a single line

My past, present and future

I carefully hung it in the wall

And I stepped in

Into my magical world. Adieu!

Curves

curves and subtle bends

coarse texture and silky flow

she glides towards sea

The Delusion

I slowly raised my hands
The grim monitor came to life
Trying to reach the far away sky
I reluctantly pressed the keys
The hopping rabbits played with the dew
When I reluctantly switched between apps
As the cold zephyr brushed my face
I flipped through documents
I took the flute in my hands
Opened its cap and started to write
Birds chirping to my tunes
I corrected and re-corrected my writings
I wanted to fly too
Sitting in my office chair

The End?

The gentle breeze drifted

through the streets

I slowly took her hand

brought it to my chest

I saw her pink lips curve to a smile

The light was bright

sudden and blinding

I was thrown,

as the heat punctured my lungs

Our hands parted,

like an evil force dragging us apart

My head throbbed as I fell,

my legs hurt

I pushed my hand

as hard as I can to get up

I saw her, meters away,

with bleeding head

My legs failed, so did my ears.

I shouted

Shouted her name

She stretched her arms towards me,

I stretched mine, to reach her,

so far away

She smiled

I smiled

Her eyes slowly closed

So did mine

                                                                               .

Sometimes

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

is trust

trust in us

For which I don’t have the courage

or the strength in my heart.
