Unsaid Parting

I think the separation that hurt the most is when people drift apart without knowing the reason? Reticent mind, painful silence, and arduous vagueness, all teasing the worn-out heart, making parting such a devilish experience. Then there exists this pretentious thought, which peeps from the grayness and through the hazy window of a murky mind, giving the delirious heart to raise a tender chance of a fast diminishing hope, ironically making egress a difficult task to fathom.

Emotions blemishing sanity, eyes brandishing gargoyle vision and mind oscillating between sudden sparks of blithe and many bursts of sorrows. Often a lifetime goes by seeking answers and then at the end the mind buries the battered soul in a shell, trying to survive the life, as we call, an ostensible paradise.

Divine Love

In life, we often get drawn towards people, and the allure and the lure make us fall in love, not that we plan it that way but mostly it turns out to be transient, surviving only a few seasons of bloom.

Then when we expect the least, we meet an aberrant soul, someone who is mysteriously different, reticently enticing, enigmatically desirous, and before we know we intricately connect, which never breaks despite testing times. In a momentary trice, to our surprise, the world changes, drawing us into a seance, and a beacon of uncalled attraction looms our mind, our heart, our existence as if the soul has found an anchor to repose its listless soul. And no matter what the universe states or there is void of reciprocation to our longings, we remain in blithe regardless.

The indifferent demeanor, harshness, or sheer no acceptance of love, strangely proves insignificant, for our ardor will triumph all such trifling thoughts. We may not realize, but just to spend a few moments of togetherness, we wait for a lifetime, without remorse, without prejudice, for everything we do is for the happiness of that person, and what we get in return becomes frivolous over time.

And one who experiences such divine love is most fortunate, regardless of what they get out of such an ardent love.

Gnomic – A Flash Fiction

Everyone of your smile, the simper one, the smirk display or the guffaws has such a vivid artistry such a enigmatic pull and no matter how hard I try I will never be able to decipher your gnomic unsaid verse

Ostentatious – A Flash Fiction

Crawling her thoughts in the crevices of her heart she died a thousand deaths every day, and those nights when she was in the company of her miscreant mind, she battled several torrid times. Yet every morning she woke up, put her make up, displayed a brave face and much against her wish she wore that ostentatious smile. And she survived

Aplomb – A Flash Fiction

The kids in her class were loud and mischievous, creating ruckus every moment of the day. As if the uprooting from her country was not enough. She missed her friends, school, and everything that reminded of her beautiful home town. Now caught in a delirious setup, she put a defiant shield on her smile, like armor and kept her interaction with her alien world to a minimum.

Few miscreants took offense of her silence and never missed a chance to tease her. And then one day they took it to the extreme. While climbing stairs she was deliberately pushed down. She tumbled and fell with bruises all over her body. But she didn’t let her aplomb fade away and got to her feet swiftly. Her football coach, who saw the episode, rushed to her and promised to take harsh action against the culprits, but to everyone’s surprise, she didn’t utter a word against her classmates. She put forth her aplomb face and mentioned it was an accident. That day she made many a friend and her new world after all was not strange anymore.

In Nature’s Arm

When a heart is wrapped in melancholy, often it finds solace in nature’s embrace, for seldom humans can give respite in testing time

Drowning in wave of clouds

And she roused,
leaving the aberrant world
and the ostensible milieu behind
to chart a new route
to believe in a new life
and she was now floating on cloud nine
but she drowned again
for while she left the world
she still carried the defiant thoughts
in her miscreant soul

Faded Sepia

The reminisce of our yesteryear yonder
still lingers fresh on my mind,
the moments of our innocuous touch
playing a fresh

And those carefree guffaws,
and the sleepless nights
the silly talks
and the momentary delight
all wrapped beautifully in my soul

And they play back today
like faded sepia of some stolen memories
resurrecting from some past yore

———–

In response to Manic Sylph beautiful though Faded sepia memories of stolen Memories. Let me know your thoughts
