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.

Dusk!

its dusk
we know when
the bees buzz back to hives,
the breeze becomes cold,
the chaotic world pauses,
blushing red sun hides
behind the horizon.

The lost letter

I am a flower,
not the one on the garland
on the temple idol
but the one which is
used and thrown
for them I am a mere
object of fragrance
they touch me, smell me
use me and throw it away
to be stamped by random strangers
I wanted to live
but they don’t care
I searched for a meaning
I searched for courage
there is only one decision
that I can make.
I Quit.

Suspense!

is it him?
no, its not
but what if its him?
it can’t be
he is careful
very, always
should I see?
probably I shouldn’t
because its not him
ten yards felt like
a million miles
I slowly opened the cloth
to reveal the face.
my heart stopped.
