Let It Go

For once I thought,
I would let it go,
Ignore her ruses,
And go with the flow.

I abolished the endearment,
And detested the queer,
Losing her was,
No longer my fear.

And we drifted away,
In different spheres of life,
She indulged in her proceedings,
I enjoyed playing the fife.

There were no predicaments,
No reasonings to be done,
The soul wandered freely,
Without carrying the burden.

Eons went by,
time flew,
And then one day,
She appeared,
Without giving any clue.

All the suppressed emotions,
Came rushing by,
My false state of freedom,
Came crashing by.

That day I realized one thing,
When you bond with someone deeply,
It is hard to dodge,
that surged feeling.

Whenever she would decide,
To come back,
You would welcome her in your world,
Against what you desire.

It was way past midnight,
But that’s how time flies,
For he was in love,
And before he could realize,
It was time for her to go.

His heart sank,
Falling rapidly in an endless pit,
Like the ocean’s abyss,
Dark and scary,
He didn’t want to show,
But was unsure,
How to not let her go.

And then with trembling lips,
And a timid voice,
He asked her,
If she was open for a nightcap,
He almost looked away,
In the fear of welcoming any rejection.

But then he heard the magical voice,
Sure, but where,
At your place or mine?

The Sensuous Allure

The desires of an alluring heart,
Never ceased to dream,
Your lips on mine like an infused libium of flowery seam,
And those eyes though looked strangely calm,
Yet love screamed through the unruly teardrops,
breaking every qualm.

I gently parted away from our winding embrace,
To kiss your tendered eyes,
To held that teary sight,
But those hands pulled me back to a passionate amorous skite,
And the imperious trembling sighs,
morphed into some sensuous sight.

Your fragrance was making me deliriously inane,
And our tongues locked like shining gleam,
The copious slobber spreading over our face,
and we imploded with nothing in between.

There was silence, but in disguise
And darkness couldn’t conceal a thing,
For our throbbing hearts,
were narrating gently,
every part of our yearnings.

There was filthiness yet it was not obscene,
There was hunger yet lustiness was unseen,
We held each other closely,
bonded like the meridian spiraling the circle of trust,
And we surrendered our souls
floating to oblivion,
as time came to a grinding halt.

Detest the Past Shadows

If you keep looking at the shadows of the past,
how will the brightness of today is going to last?
Throw that towel,
Detest the veering thoughts,
Listen deeply,
To the whispers of your soul,
‘Cause the incidents of past,
Is for the learning alone,
So, embrace the wisdom,
And set forward.

For there are mountains to tame,
And oceans to cross,
There are moments to accost,
And some names to claim.

Go live your dream my friend,
A world of happiness,
Is awaiting around the corner,
Go clasp its hand.
