When I am Sorry

When we say sorry and when we truly mean it, a burden is always off our chest, yet we hesitate to unleash it. And even when we do say the words, we give reasons to justify our behavior or even worse, at times we ask for redemption. To me, this is to satisfy that ego we nurture on our minds.

From now on, if I apologize, I will simply apologize without any rider, and if at all I want to do anything, I will show it through my action without promising anything upfront.

Why I love Her?

I love her not for the contours of her gorgeous countenance, but for the cathartic relief her presence exudes on my amorphous soul

Your Reminisce

No matter how many beautiful moments I conjure, they never dazzle enough to outshine the reminisce I keep for you in the fold of my heart

Let it Go

Hold me in your eyes, 
accost me tête-à-tête,
ask me what you desire,
let the resentment you’re beholding
release with an ease,

it is time to drop the guards,
it is time to attain the dreams,
let no past grudge hold you down,
for love is awaiting,
let the longing we nurture
breach the silence we keep,

and if you give me a cue,
I won’t disappoint you

Silver Thaw

The nip in the air was refreshingly charming, 
you in your blue overall denim,
and I wearing my yellow cardigan,
walking in the embrace of nature
lost in each other’s words

Now a year has gone by,
the nip in the air is piercingly arrogant,
and the silence in the nature is eerily frightening,
perhaps the love has drifted
in the thin air of confusion,
morphing into an enigmatic sliver thaw

Juxtaposition of emotions

There were times when remaining lost weaving her dreams was something I desired earnestly, and such are the days now where I am entangled in her yearnings, hopelessly trying to find a path to escape from this dreary world

Deciphering this Enigmatic Life

The listlessness, 
the emptiness,
the yearning,
the longing,
often we are crowded in such emotional turmoil without being able to comprehend why?

Why do we long to meet someone?
Why do we fall in love with people who we know will only give pain?
Why are we nostalgic about the past that is engraved deep in our hearts?
Why do certain places keep reappearing in our conscious mind, making us restless all the while?

The answers to all the whys are hidden in the depth of our souls.

When we don’t learn to be content with what life has bestowed us.
When we blind our soul with an imaginary beauty that pretentiously shimmers a tad more than what we possess.
When we fail to look within ourselves.
When we yearn in the past and remain anxious for the future.
When we don’t accept the moments, which is here and now.

Then it leads our mind to unattainable desires, making us perturb and anxious.

Let us shed away all such illusions and enjoy every moment of this beautiful thing called life.

Reflection

Desires are curtailed when heart surrenders to the pretentious rationale put forth by an overthinking mind

A Diwali Wish

The pewter skies 
though draped in grayness
without giving any sign of thinning
stirring anxieties within you
is transient

And how long the darkness will last
is leaning on how you conjure hope
and nurture belief

May the festival of light
shed away all the shadow of doubts,
let the light within you glow with an ambient spark
and may your perturbation fades away
Levitating your shining soul
in every moment of your life

Turmoil

If I can conjure enough willpower, 
muster enough courage,
to drive her thoughts away
from my mind
that infests within me
like some Corinthian dreams,
echoing from a distance,
ricocheting the past reminiscence,
with a constant hum
that refuses to subside

And even if I succeed
in driving her thoughts away
from my mind
by cajoling and pleading,
will I ever be able to
shed her off,
from my bleeding heart?
