The Memoir

She lived her life in blithe,
charming and cheerful,
displaying her superior self,
never impeding from her will succeed,
for she didn’t want to regret,
the day when she will
sit down and look back
to write her memoir

Behind the Ostensible Shield

She lived her life in style,
every day a memory,
every occasion a moment of pride

She was a dream to aspire,
a hope of making the dead alive,
A desire to weave
a reason to nurture believe

That’s how she appeared to the world, beauty, perfection, astute, impeccable were the superlatives
she was known for

But people failed to see,
how she achieved
what the world now envied

For her grit to succeed,
the abrasion and the bleed,
the emotional turmoil,
and the times
when she broke down and coil,
all the harsh realities were never seen by those eyes,
as they thought she never had to try,
for she was born to touch the skies

He Survived

Her guffaws were imprinted on his mind,
like a recurring uproar
laughing his worries away,

And every occasion the heart betrayed,
looming the dark clouds
over his benign thoughts,

She planned those accidental visits,
and it didn’t matter
how dark the alleys were,
or how desolate his aura was,
she found a way to invade,
occupying every corner of his mind,
and despite the wretched self
or the melancholy he assumed,
her aberrant thoughts made him smile,
and that’s how he survived

Those Words

Her words were like splotch
smeared on the horizon
with shades of crimson,
and the scarlet dipped verses
were bright and vivid,
for she spoke
from the creases of her beautiful heart

The Fall Foliage

The fall foliage scattered all around
and the evening gentle breeze
tossing and turning them with ease,
and the tall oak trees
sprinkling some more
of the crimson red leaves
to the wide-open prairies

The verdure’s musk,
the downy’s chirp,
the wilderness call,
the endless uproar,
all unstructured,
and are in some absolute chaos,
yet there exists harmony,
deviant from the normal,
but still the best symphony
I have ever witnessed
in the blithe of such nature’s caper

Unspoken Verse

We never shared any moments together, neither have we drenched in each other’s love,
there isn’t even a thread that hold us,
nor a visible bond for us to restraint

Still I am unsure why?
the eyes twinkles,
the heart glows,
the thoughts smiles,
and love echoes,
when you casually decide
to stroll through my incoherent disguise

And it doesn’t matter
whether it is summer, winter,
spring or fall,
my brow displays
the hint of perspiration,
and the nervous countenance
some shades of eagerness,
in anticipation to meet your cerulean eyes.
