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.

Rebound

The callous barriers,
the ruthless ravines,
the unattainable peaks,
that life dangling from a frail vine,

life often put us
on such precarious path
when the shine and glow of our visage
often turned into
some fearful whitish shades,
when the gray pewter skies
clouds every hope,
dwarfs each one of our tries,
we are often left in dismay
to tend a battered heart

and in such a moment of despair
often we break into pieces,
unable to bear the pain,
leaving hope,
tamed to the situation,
surrendering to fate

but there are few deviant hearts
who stand back every time they fall,
hold the brandishing scare by the horn
and their relentless fervor
defies all ostensible truth
and those are the souls
who leave behind a legacy
for others to cherish
and for scattered hopes to regroup

For We are in Love

We embraced each other
in some panoramic ensemble
weaved in a fabric of togetherness deviant from the understanding
of what the world prescribes

Neither laced with lust,
or with any preconceived intent
nor caged in any burden of prejudice
or waiting for any approval
for it is aberrant
from any sane explanation,
a melody from my heart to hers
and from her heart to my soul
a bond meant for eternity
for we are in love

Misunderstanding

Two souls met with glee
moments in blithe
emotions in a spree

A harmonious union
a bonding with no decree
they shared life experiences
smiles in abundance
hearts were set to free

The little confab that brewed innocuously
they enjoyed with a charm
letters written with enthusiasm
a fire got ignited
without meaning any harm

But in some fateful trice
his affectionate words that meant no harm
were taken against him
and a spark of misunderstanding
crashed the momentary bliss
