Her Promise in My Heart

And she appeared
gently diffusing the morning mist
layer by layer
like a dream rising from starlit dust
and the morning breeze
kissed her tresses in a wavy trail
and her smiling countenance
embracing the flair of dawn’s smile
then I saw a dream morphing to reality,
for her eyes held a million promises
and I floated to blithe
holding her promises in my heart

In response to Manic Sylph beautiful prompt Her Eyes Hold a million promises

Faded Sepia

The reminisce of our yesteryear yonder
still lingers fresh on my mind,
the moments of our innocuous touch
playing a fresh

And those carefree guffaws,
and the sleepless nights
the silly talks
and the momentary delight
all wrapped beautifully in my soul

And they play back today
like faded sepia of some stolen memories
resurrecting from some past yore

———–

In response to Manic Sylph beautiful though Faded sepia memories of stolen Memories. Let me know your thoughts

Halcyon – A Poem

Her fabric of smile
still lingers on my mind,

Those halcyon days
weaving many memories to treasure
many moments to beacon

And in the years to come,
I will smile often
reeling back in blithe
and lost in the ensemble
of those glorious times

Propitious

When we meet
the flower blooms with glory and pride,

The azure cerulean skies drizzle
creating a breathtaking sight,

The Zephyr gently blows
captivating hearts and mesmerize souls

Every soul enthuses smiles,
every thought displays a charming verse,
for our meeting beacons a propitious purpose
beyond any rhymes or reasons

Shanghaiing

You are never out of your deceitful tricks,
at first you display an innocuous smile,
cajoling a pretense
that didn’t mean any harm
winning my innocent heart over

Then you slowly creep into my world,
driving me to a point of obsession
and when I am entrapped
in your deceiving spell
you get what you desire
without much effort

And after Shanghaiing me
into your rile needs
you escape like a speck of dust
into oblivion
leaving my betrayed soul
in a state of disbelief
and then I wonder
who to blame
your miscreant deeds
or my deviant heart

Will She Survive

The screams on “don’t do” cease to exist

The quietness she longed for was in abundance

The frequent unannounced clamors that troubled her the most had magically disappeared

The house was too clean for her to recognize

The tranquility she longed for all this time was finally arrived

But the clamor inside her mind still survived

And no matter how much she tried it failed to recede

Tale of Our Untold Story

Dissolved in the potent of some vicious charm,
blended with radiance
of thousand nova’s sparkling brilliance
drenched in the eternity of love,
magically mystical,
desirously vicious,
enviously luscious
is what you gobbled
through your blue doe eyes
the tale of our untold story

Evicting Memories

How do you evict memories
from the miscreant mind,
rudely awakening the emotional quotient
from its deep slumber,
right at the moment, you thought
the bygones were good riddance,
thoughts rattled,
appearance muffled,
eyes bellowing the crimson skies
those reminiscence making the heart sink
in just a moment of trice
