The Unsaid Bond

Do we have anything between us?
or am I chasing a mirage,
a shimmering shadow
that glitters sometimes
only to disappear
after some blithe moments
to treasure whilst your absence

You mayn’t know
but every time you decide to leave
I am pulled into a ravine,
an abyss,
a bottomless pit of darkness and despair

Until you appear again to disappear
and the mirage loop continues

Valiant Soul

And I tried to crawl
beneath the shroud that she silently wore
imposing an aura of her stout being
defiant and strong,
ready to brace any passing storm

But when I undraped her soul
I found a tender heart
like yours and mine
vulnerable and yearning for love
maybe story of every valiant soul

Totem

You showed up
as if the world I lived in
post your disappearance
didn’t exist,

only to vanish again,
creating a crate
of insidious pain
submerging my existence
into a delirious abyss of darkness
where the sun
the moon
and all the celestial bods
are sucked into a large ball of dark fire,

yet I resurrected
for the grit within me
had an epiphany to realize
how you never defined me
and the totemic semblance
on my soul
led me to a world where I survived

Her Insidious Outlook

She didn’t know
how her sudden emotional deluge
laced with some peripheral love
works wonder on his barren soul
and while he remain in trance
enjoying every blissful moment
that life has bestowed
she recedes her love in the next trice
and she remain oblivion
to the insidious impact
she carves on his desirous soul
but he never learn
for he let her exploit his bleeding heart time over time

Throng – A Flash Fiction

She ran as if it was her last sprint to freedom, and holding fear in her eyes and hope in her soul she dashed. She carried the burden of lonesomeness, the horror from the past and depressions of yore way too long. Now she desired to accost people, talk her fear out, feel comforted and be loved. So, she bulldozed her way to be with a crowd. Will she get respite surrounded by a throng? For in a crowd you may not be lonely but can still be alone

Throng – A Thought

The loneliness that drapes my mind, I often try to evade throng in the crowd but miserably fail for the ostensible world can hardly give any company to an aberrant heart

Lost in the labyrinth of times

I traversed the time forgotten lanes of yore,
digging deep into myriad paths of unknown past

And meandering and pacing across eons of memories
I looked for the shore to rest my anchor

And as I looked around
searching my share of beautiful reminisce
from the yonder
I dwelled deep within
lost in the labyrinth of times

Prompt given by talented Manic Sylph Lost in the labyrinth of times
