Priorities

Life is a collection of priorities and choices. You prioritized everything over me, and I chose to let you go

Believe

Give it in,
Let it go,
For this time believe what I show,
I am your shadow,
Not different from you,
Maybe few shades darker but I am the new you,
Untie that knot,
And believe in this thought,
Together we will create some stories untold.

Let us attain the uncharted paths,
and descry some unexplored roads,
Together let us pledge not to impede that
shining glow,
If you trust me, hold my hand,
In front of us, no gale can stand,
You connect in rarity with someone,
Don’t let it go in some doltish rationale,
Show that courage and take that plunge,
Behold the moment don’t let it expunge.

An Illusion

Lost in the palaver of her myriad thoughts,
Tarnishing  every dissuasion that suggests leaving you,
remain taciturn to listen to your voice,
Become a vagrant chasing an illusion called you.

I touch your shadow in the soot of the night,
Rummage memories to get your vivid sight,
feel your fragrance from the immemorial times,
Hold your scribbles with words that had rime.

I treasure you like relics from a past world,
Hope incandescent like plumes of love,
Your happiness matter most to me,
And I reel away entwine in my reverie’s swirl.
