Beyond Prejudice

Maybe she was dissipated,
Indulged in some passionate verve,
Accosting her tripped soul,
Jostling hard to subsume her nerve.

And all you could manage,
Was to do some cheap talk,
Guarding her like a hawk,
And tease her with your disgraced mock.

But the beauty remained in her enthralled charm,
The world didn’t alarm her,
For she was free from all prejudice,
No one could inflict on her any harm.

Breaking The Dawn

And when you would wake,
From your long winding repose,
Invigorating morning freshness,
Induced in your abode,

And as you stretch your arms,
To embrace the moment,
Coercing it to stay.

You read this thought,
and I hope it infuses a smile,
lightning the moment,
and brightening your countenance,
For the rest of the day.

Coming Back To You

He could have waited a lifetime for her return but then he realized life is so unpredictable. If it ditches him tomorrow, the wait would have no meaning to her. So, he decided to come back. It would be a shame if she missed getting to know what life had planned for her. And he believed, all the undertakings would be worth it for it would metaphor to something meaningful provided he give it a honest try.

Today she may find it intimidating but tomorrow he hopes she would call it a blessing. People say love is overrated, but to him it is not love but people perception of love that makes it fictitious.  Love doesn’t mean one need to leave everything for pursuing new hope. It is more of an inclusion than a decree.
