Pensive Thoughts of a Convoluted Mind

I sometime wonder,
maybe for a trice,
do you feel the pang?
the pain of our separation,
the barrier of the unspoken words
and the love that we once called our own?
And if you do,
can you for once
open the flood gates of that emotional barrage,
so that even if I remain pensive
I will not be lost in my thoughts
thinking I am alone
entwined in this complex thing called love

Paradox

The milieu we live in is bizarre, for when we hide emotions it labels us heartless and when we express, we are typecast as weak. Alas! we are never spared

But the point remains, should we even care?

My Thoughts

How many times I have taken your name
just to feel the metallic taste
of your vibes in my senses

And how many times
I have weaved stories
of our accosting moments

the scarlet skies,
the crimson eyes
sparkled with your vibes

And I proudly acclaim that
you can take away everything from me
but can never steal the thoughts
that holds you close to my heart,
for they are mine
away from your malicious reach

Soul Trapped

A mind clouded with many myriad thoughts, stirring an innocuous mind, leading to confusion.

But then you have love to steer your perturb heart to the shore, provided you can look beyond your yore and see the love that beacons you.

Alas, many fail to see that sign, for they are shackled by an ostensible world, a spread set by illusionist and a vulnerable trap you often find your soul entangled in. Overtime you become used to the fetters and ignore listening to the signals that often beeps amidst the noise your mind is shrouded with. And once you give up you parish.

Reasons

You may be determined today to stay aloof,
putting our hearts to the hilt of abjection,
for reasons that you firmly believe today

Or it maybe a presumption that you outlined,
fearing where this might lead,

It could be an illusion too
where you fear thinking
how we are so different like chalk and cheese

I am sure your reasons have its own merit,
but I am certain
no matter what you think today
when the cloud of your pretentious reasons will fade
you will realize illusions and apprehensions
are the only reasons
one should never reason with

Callousness

Not that you make the word “us” diminutive

Or that you don’t care about my existence anymore

Nor even when you betrayed those words
that you will never leave me alone

Or showed your callousness with ease
like it is always like this before

What haunts me the most
is the fact you doubted my intentions
and the sincerity of my love

Broken Dreams

I came to accost you
hold you in the folds my heart,
like how you used to fit so well
in the crevices of my soul

I came with myriad dreams
and splendor thoughts,

I came with hope,

I came to create our world,
brick by brick
to raise a shelter
we would call our own

I came with such feathery dreams
and a deviant hold

And now I am leaving with nothing
but a morbid soul

A Vicious Circle

In the midst of tendering a battered heart and a wounded soul I learned the most beautiful lesson of life, no one but we are responsible for ruining our happiness. But the irony remains, despite being advised by the oracle and warned by the learned, love often weakens our guards, making our tender heart vulnerable to the atrocities of life.

The Kiss of the Winter Sun

I love the kiss of the winter sun basking my world, and in its drape I reminisce the days when you were around, for then, even in the dreadful winter nights your love kept my soul blithe oozing warmth of a million warm days
