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

[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.

Greateful

Starlit nights and moon beneath skies

The mild breeze and ever stretching seas

The bright sunny day when little birds play

The icebergs that look like foam

I’m greateful for the Earth we call home.

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!

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
