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

Sonnet in the winds

Entrenched I was in my plodding reality,
She swooped in like a sonnet in the winds
Lifting me to her distant dreamy world

Conscious dream (The banyan tree – II)

Read the first part here: The Banyan Tree – I

 

The sky painted blue

Yellow lantern rising

Its rays waking wings

Sparkling dew on green carpet

He skipped a puddle

Towards the big floating branches

I could watch him all day

His soft hair, his stubble

 

He sat near me silently

His eyes reflecting my face

A small curve on his lips

With his back touching the

Banyan tree, he took my hand

Within his hands

No words exchanged

 

I turned my face away from his

As he slowly leaned onto me

Its not really a good bye, he said

My eyes went watery

The war isn’t easy,

And all the life it has claimed

Sacred isn’t a word enough

This banyan tree has been our sanctum

With myriad memories flashing

I choked

 

He said nothing

Kept mum, shifting slowly

‘Oh Mike!’ I gasped,

as he slowly slipped

A ring onto my finger

 

to be continued…

Silence

Always-severus-snape-23854963-500-333

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

And mumbled,

“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

                                                                                                     .

RIP #AlanRickman

Written on the memory of Alan Rickman, on the day he left us

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.

The Banyan Tree – I

image

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.
