Playing with Words

Like a ball
you dabble my words with your feet,
hammering it,
beating it
pushing my thoughts away into oblivion
but like a boomerang you again look for my words,
like the way you loved to have possession
of your soccer ball,
for you cannot survive with it or without it.

Convoluted

Tenderness of those words,
the smooth texture of your verse,
has transposed to harsh reality of today,
smearing the ugliness
on the canvas of our heart,
making the cerulean horizon
turn into shades of pewter gray,
raising a miasma,
for you decided to break
every promise you promised to keep

Muted

Labeled with uneasy quietness,
prolonged moments of deafness,
muted silence of myriad agonies,
the unchartered eerie,
all juxtaposition with my chaotic thoughts,
a cacophony of quietude emotional barrage,
the sinking of my clouded soul,
a confusion crowding my world
with contradicting notions
when you left

Pensive Thoughts of a Convoluted Mind

I sometime wonder,
maybe for a trice,
do you feel the pang?
the pain of our separation,
the barrier of the unspoken words
and the love that we once called our own?
And if you do,
can you for once
open the flood gates of that emotional barrage,
so that even if I remain pensive
I will not be lost in my thoughts
thinking I am alone
entwined in this complex thing called love

Crushed

And you plundered away the last hope
that was flickering frantically
in my darkest of nights
with a shimmering flame
and that tall resilience
in a whiff, you crushed it
against that gray wall of nothingness
and now my heart is a vacuum
listlessly floating away into oblivion
unsure what it awaits for
as you watch from a distance
with meandering eyes
displaying callousness
pretentiously wondering
what went wrong
with a dandy person like me

Love a Conundrum

Love is an interesting phenomenon, for when we chase it often scurries away but shows up in sudden burst when expectations are left in some hidden shack

Escaped

His malicious intent camouflaged behind that pretentious smile, and in its illusion though she may have lost her benign heart but her soul remained untouched, for it was far from the reach of his spiteful thoughts
