Diatribe

If you believe in your deeds, let no diatribe shatter your soul, for criticism are often a reflection of someone else’s mind.

Ethereal

Her charm
an early morning mist
dissolving in the soot
of some pewter skies

And her smile
an unsaid gospel
floating in the thin air
in dawn’s zephyr

And I
a lost soul
resting my anchor
in her ethereal demeanor
remaining forever in bliss

Baroque

Walking down the old town cobbled street
I felt as if I got transported to some mystic time
the rustic tall iron structure
holding the lamps
oozing a baroque sense
and the gargoyles
displaying an era of Byzantine charm
and as I sauntered forward
in a haphazard way
the aura spelled out a fragrance
from the gothic times
a sense of love beaconed and
an uncalled nostalgic feel
arrested my soul
though I never belonged to that time
or maybe it was a premonition
a resurrection of time forgotten yonder yore

The Creeper

The violet lavender creeper
climbing the railing of the cafe
housed at the corner of the street
has a signature of its own
and its aura spread an enticing fragrance
dragging many wandering feet
to the helm of the milieu
for sharing smiles and lifting souls

Silent Prayers

From a distance she watches me,
keeping my thoughts in her breath
as she recite her hymns
casting my image
in the folds of her eyelids
giving me a divine touch
through some unsaid verse

Totem

You showed up
as if the world I lived in
post your disappearance
didn’t exist,

only to vanish again,
creating a crate
of insidious pain
submerging my existence
into a delirious abyss of darkness
where the sun
the moon
and all the celestial bods
are sucked into a large ball of dark fire,

yet I resurrected
for the grit within me
had an epiphany to realize
how you never defined me
and the totemic semblance
on my soul
led me to a world where I survived

Balkanize

You,
drenched in your ego
and selfish mutt
drove her sane mind to insanity
and balkanized her naive heart
to fragments of dithered emotional rack

How often

How often

we let our mind to pollute

with impressions that never exists,

draw conclusions on random emotions, and judge people

influence by ostentatious thoughts

of some myopic minds

Her Insidious Outlook

She didn’t know
how her sudden emotional deluge
laced with some peripheral love
works wonder on his barren soul
and while he remain in trance
enjoying every blissful moment
that life has bestowed
she recedes her love in the next trice
and she remain oblivion
to the insidious impact
she carves on his desirous soul
but he never learn
for he let her exploit his bleeding heart time over time
