Eons away Yet not Far

The spatter of our nonchalant talks, 
the endless guffaws during those long walks, 
the meeting of the miscreant eyes, 
the melting of hearts with your gentle touch, 
the unfinished goals, 
the stories, 
some shared, some untold
the aspirations to reach beyond the azure skies, 
one moment draped in love, 
and the other caught in a brier
the heartbreaks, 
the fights, 
the numerous fallyet
never giving up the urge to climb, 
our dreams, 
our life, and our little abode 
holding hands, rekindling thoughts 

Years have gone by,
times have changed, 
you and I are no longer the same, 
the dreams and the plans 
took some deviant detour, 
life moved on, 
some made sense,
some in stupor,
but despite all the clamor 
one thing that has not changed thus far 
is the love we nurture for each other 
hidden in our yearning heart

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.

Transformed

I was just a speck of dust
lost in the oblivion,
trifle and insignificant
like some foliage in fall

My wins my losses my joys and my pride,
never met with any rejoice,
never received any smile,
neither a tear was shed,
nor a word was spelled,
for my existence was trivial,
like a picayune noise
in some clamor of voice

And then you came unannounced,
and held me close to your throbbing heart,
you picked my scattered being,
nurtured my mortal soul,
and before I knew
I wasn’t insignificant anymore,
for you gave me some purpose
showed me some hope,
you rekindled the fire
that was dormant for long,
and I stood there beaming
discovering the new me
beyond the definition
of any right or wrong

Her Enigmatic Spell

The enigmatic spell her aura spelled
abraded the shroud his soul draped,
and before he could comprehend,
his rustic life was painted
in shades of red,
vivid and distinct,
clear and lucid,
liberating him,
from his otherwise incoherent life

Avenge

I unearthed her slowly one layer at a time,
exposing her dormant emotions,
one sense at a time

Like a skilled craftsman,
I abraded the masks she wore,
made her stand naked,
with her soul exposed

A sense of victory
crossed my evil eyes,
a dancing smirk graced my lips
spilling venom laced briers

My time of avenge had finally come
I desired to abandon her
and mock her like she once performed

But then I committed a mistake
that I should have never done
I looked at her eyes
and I all my hatred was gone

For this time those eyes had
bellowing love for me,
the eyes showed my reflection,
which I couldn’t reckon

And I surrendered my life
in the capture of her eyes,
for those doe-shaped eyes
now would never lie

I am a Man of Extremes

I am a man of extremes,
I don’t understand things in between, mediocrity never suits my way,
nor can I be confined to one place

I don’t love anything in pieces,
nor do I hide my emotions in a shroud,
my eyes speak my heart with a scream,
for I am a man of extremes

And when I embrace any soul,
I don’t do it with preconceived notions,
I love without boundaries,
for I am a man of extremes

And if I decide to shed away
no reminiscence linger
to trail any shadow of mine
I don’t believe in residual regrets,
for I am a man of extremes

Never Lose Hope

Don’t lose hope
when the nights are dark,
for the moon has just
transiently smeared
in some celestial smite

But soon the darkness
will dissolve
and brightness will regain
its shimmering light
