Indecisive

In the scare of being over intrusive
he was hesitant to inquire her deviant outlook,
and before he could discern
she was draped in layers of obtrusive shield,
and despite his best intentions
he watched her slowly morphing
from being ebullient
to a crestfallen being.

All his desires,
his dreams
and his thoughts vaporized,
for he couldn’t muster enough courage
to let his mind speak

He Survived

Her guffaws were imprinted on his mind,
like a recurring uproar
laughing his worries away,

And every occasion the heart betrayed,
looming the dark clouds
over his benign thoughts,

She planned those accidental visits,
and it didn’t matter
how dark the alleys were,
or how desolate his aura was,
she found a way to invade,
occupying every corner of his mind,
and despite the wretched self
or the melancholy he assumed,
her aberrant thoughts made him smile,
and that’s how he survived

Those Words

Her words were like splotch
smeared on the horizon
with shades of crimson,
and the scarlet dipped verses
were bright and vivid,
for she spoke
from the creases of her beautiful heart

Resurrection

Hidden down somewhere beneath
many layers of the trenchant heart,
some remain charming
and few unpleasant reminiscences
of the yesteryears

Though invisible,
yet it portrayed her dwindle image,
covered in strata of million contrived emotions,
some real,
and few perturbed human charades

And in the midst of the confusions
existed her semblance,
lost in a sea of thoughts,
stashed in a dark abyss of rotten broth

Yet after eons of spurious disappearance,
she was standing tall,
displaying truth,
speaking verse harsh and rife,
questioning each one of his pretentious smiles,
and doubting his pompous strife
as she walked back into his life

Her Aberrant Stance

He held her with all might,
but like sand sifting through a fist,
or shadows disappearing
under some mist,
she escaped,
and before he knew,
she vanished from his pretentious sight, for she was a desire,
an abstruse thought,
an aura to feel,
not to limit within the boundaries
of any societal rife

Eons away Yet not Far

The spatter of our nonchalant talks, 
the endless guffaws during those long walks, 
the meeting of the miscreant eyes, 
the melting of hearts with your gentle touch, 
the unfinished goals, 
the stories, 
some shared, some untold
the aspirations to reach beyond the azure skies, 
one moment draped in love, 
and the other caught in a brier
the heartbreaks, 
the fights, 
the numerous fallyet
never giving up the urge to climb, 
our dreams, 
our life, and our little abode 
holding hands, rekindling thoughts 

Years have gone by,
times have changed, 
you and I are no longer the same, 
the dreams and the plans 
took some deviant detour, 
life moved on, 
some made sense,
some in stupor,
but despite all the clamor 
one thing that has not changed thus far 
is the love we nurture for each other 
hidden in our yearning heart
