Regrow the Copse of his love

Lost in the hullabaloos of the city dwelling,
between the hustling of vehicle,
and the cacophony of escalating noise,
his emotions were in turmoil,
and his delirious soul
trying hard to survive,
but his attempts were frail
as it assumed quietude

And then one day
with rustling steps
his soul wandered away
from the concrete structures into the woods
trying to find its share of respite in the wild,
the abode, which he left long time ago,
drawn by the glitter of the city, he so much loved

And now as he saw his roots withered,
dreams shattered,
soul sold,
the city took away everything away but not hope,
as he coppiced his heart
to regrow the copse of his love

Elide

She left him bereaved
without giving much reasoning,
and faded away like sand sift through the hand,

He quivered,
pleaded for her to stay,
did everything he could to appease her

But she passed a queer smirk
and left him alone
to absolve her disguise
in absolute quietude

And as he was nursing his broken soul
she appeared again with her signature smile,
pulled him into her universe,
and told him he was her world

He was in blithe
but before he could declare the clouds had evaded
she vanished again into oblivion
without much reason or rhyme

He had shattered again,
but this time he didn’t plead her to stay,
neither he hoped for her return
he cultivated his broken yore
and set a path of resurrection on his own

And she appeared again,
wearing her ostensible innocuous smile,
but time had changed ,
he smiled but not with love,
he spoke but not love,
for he elided her out of his words, thoughts, and mind

Prescind

Her love,
an occult,
like a mystic tale
blended in a melodious allure

And her thoughts
had shades of a bohemian soul,
gravitating to a desire,
impossible to escape

One can doubt her existence,
her presence,
her words,
her meandering talks,
but never can anyone
prescind her love

That Smile

Not the mascara
shaping your eyelashes,
or some shades’ glare
that cover your visage,
the only thing that looks good on you
is your benign sparkling smile

Let Me Be​ Me

Let this ostensible life
which we drape day and night
pretending to be someone else
take a backseat

Let me drop all the disguise
shed away all the gimmicks
drive all unwanted thoughts
let me be me this time
