Just for Once

I often wonder maybe for once

maybe after eons will pass

maybe when there will be a blue moon night

maybe when the unruly stars will glide down to earth

maybe when fairy tales will be a charm to reckon

maybe just for that momentary trice

you will crane your neck in sheer longing

to find me just for once

melting in your arms remembering those time when we used to be one soul

and did we say for a lifetime?

The Vibes

Your mere thoughts blinds me with your fragrance,
as if you are here right in front of my eyes,
wearing your polka dot green drape
spreading that pixie smile
and though your absence troubles me often
but your sudden appearance in the folds of my memories
never cease to excite me,
even when there is a dearth of hope
yet your sudden presence,
though from yore
I feel you at yonder
maybe the only reason why I am still alive

Power of Smile

She brandished her elated state
through her doe shaped eyes,
and the twinkle that graced her smile
sparkled the otherwise barren world with hope,
and the flowers bloomed,
the birds chirped,
the rain possessed the petrichor fragrance,
for the universe came alive,
such was the power in her beautiful smile

Playing with Words

Like a ball
you dabble my words with your feet,
hammering it,
beating it
pushing my thoughts away into oblivion
but like a boomerang you again look for my words,
like the way you loved to have possession
of your soccer ball,
for you cannot survive with it or without it.

Liberated

The sparkles from the moonlit skies is dazzling my eyes

and the fireflies burning flame is brightening my soul

every such nature’s miracle amazes me today

for my mind is no longer clouded with any pretentious drape

free from the ostensible thoughts of yesteryears

Hope

With tenderness in my eyes and a smile in my thoughts, I stride forward with desires in the fold my heart and zeal. And I know the path will be strenuous and at times my beliefs will be shaken yet I won’t fail for failure only drapes when we give up on our hope

For I can’t Hide

I know you know what my heart beats for,
the sudden palpitations,
the lub dub oscillating in the rhythm of your thoughts,
the surge of excitement out of the blue,
the smiles spreading in abundance,
though I myself may not have a clue
for all such childish expression,
but I know you will know still
because I may have been aloof for a while
but all such pretentious shroud disappears in a whiff
when you talk to me with your open heart

Love a Conundrum

Love is an interesting phenomenon, for when we chase it often scurries away but shows up in sudden burst when expectations are left in some hidden shack
