A Puzzle

Your thoughts drive me insane
and your presence put my world in a whirlwind,
yet despite her putting my world upside down,
my care for her remains unfazed,
the verdict given to me was craziness at the extreme,
but I know it was nothing but love that I now feel,
the starlit skies that I have finally seen
and what resides in my pulsating heart is you
fixated permanently
like some puzzle without any clue
and I happy not to decipher the DaVinci code

Drifting Away

I never thought
you will drift away into oblivion
leaving me all by myself
with your myriad thoughts,

And wrapped in your world,
I reminisce
how you vanished in a trice,
holding me earnestly in your hollow eyes

My heart still beats with the same intensity,
like before,
when you visit in my dreams,
and perhaps I still engage
with the prattle inside me thinking one day you will arrive
with your pixie little smile

Disguise

Those drawn out eyes had many tales of forbidden memories guarded closely in the shield of some cold disguise

Ubiquitous

You never left me, for when I am awake you reflect in my smile and when I am asleep you transpose like a dream

Just for Once

I often wonder maybe for once

maybe after eons will pass

maybe when there will be a blue moon night

maybe when the unruly stars will glide down to earth

maybe when fairy tales will be a charm to reckon

maybe just for that momentary trice

you will crane your neck in sheer longing

to find me just for once

melting in your arms remembering those time when we used to be one soul

and did we say for a lifetime?

Night Rumble

The day went by in a whiff,
for I was surrounded with life’s chaos,
but the night mysteriously stood tall,
for there was no one left to talk,
besides some miscreant thoughts
that kept chasing me until the dawn climbed down
one painfully slow step at a time
and in the folds of silhouette
I often stumbled
and I often drowned

Magic

I have often seen magic, and sparkle of million blooms, when the heart and the soul is in rhythm

Deciphering Enigma called You

My desires are not entwined like some complex labyrinth vine,
for the other day when we met tete-a-tete
how I wish I could hold your hand
to feel your ethereal touch
and then you would gently firm your grip
holding the belly of my palm
like you possess me for a lifetime
and in that trice you would make me sway in your stupor
and then maybe you would crack open the guards you were holding thus far,
allowing me to decipher the enigma called you

For I can’t Hide

I know you know what my heart beats for,
the sudden palpitations,
the lub dub oscillating in the rhythm of your thoughts,
the surge of excitement out of the blue,
the smiles spreading in abundance,
though I myself may not have a clue
for all such childish expression,
but I know you will know still
because I may have been aloof for a while
but all such pretentious shroud disappears in a whiff
when you talk to me with your open heart
