A Reason to Believe

Will I have a moment to seize?
a smile to accost?
a reason to raise my believe?
because you reached out to me today
giving me hope
that I am still there
in some corner
of your abstruse heart

Figment of my own Imagination

The nightmares I dreamt all my life
had now become a reality,
and stooping to such low in life,
I realized, I had nothing left to lose,
and before I could fathom the change
the charms returned with verve,
for I was nothing
but a figment of my own imagination

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.

Your New Sun

Today you found a new sun,
and it appeared to shine brighter than my moon
that you once held close to your heart

You, dazzled in its glitter
now forgot my existence
while I still hold you deep within me
not waiting for you to falter again,
neither hoping for you to come back crashing in my arms,
but with a pray
that this time let no other star
dwarf the shimmer of your sun,
and you remain in blithe always

The Battle

She pretends to be impassive, not giving any emotions away and it doesn’t matter what she desires, for she pulls a shroud upon her giving nothing away, and if he insists, she answers his yearnings with impeccable silence, but this time the battle is on, his deviant love taking off one brick at a time from the tall walls she raised made of perturbations and devious societal norms – the juxtaposition of a passionate dolt

My Protagonist

The world is desirous to meet the protagonist behind my every piece of work, and I proudly keep her in the fold my heart away from the pretentious crowd, for even I fail to decipher her abstruseness at times, thus saving her from any ostentatious prejudice, and keeping her in my world forever to be mine – the juxtaposition of a passionate dolt

Until we Accost

Can you sense my throbbing heart,
pulsating with a valiant lubdub,
while my desirous soul
trying hard to catch breathe,
for I have your smile draping my visage?

And I may be
a few thousand miles away
but my thought will stay with you tonight

And when deprive of sleep
I will gaze at the moon
your reflection in it
will make my countenance embrace your smile
making me remain in a unexplainable bliss
of delirious charm
thinking our time to accost is not that far

Throng – A Flash Fiction

She ran as if it was her last sprint to freedom and holding fear in her eyes and hope in her soul she dashed. She carried the burden of lonesomeness, the horror from the past and depressions of yore way too long. Now she desired to accost people, talk her fear out, feel comforted and be loved. So, she bulldozed her way to be with a crowd. Will she get respite surrounded by a throng? For in a crowd you may not be lonely but can still be alone
