Hope still exists

While your dreams are getting constructed... 
To travel this entire universe.. 
You may see a dark clueless way ahead... 
And your mind will forbid you to traverse... 

Don't get scared... 
It's a mirage... 

Behind which a ray of Hope exists... 
And a world for you to explore.. 


While your belief is growing stronger... 
To clear your heart from all new and old tears... 
You may see grey d...

The eternal wait

Decades have passed... 
Everything has changed... 
Relationships have changed.. 
Priorities too.. 

Faces have been painted with wrinkles.. 
Hairs too have greyed out.. 
Individuals have grown.. 

However... 

I am somehow... 
Still standing in that railway platform.. 
Watching you go... 
That was the last train... 
And the last good bye... 

I am still... 
Writing that last letter to yo...

Chat with my bestie

Talking through the twilight...

As we let pass the ticks of the wall clock...

It feels as we are watching the rolling waves...

And the ships silently departs the dock...

 

Lost in the midnight chats...

Our souls are as innocent as a child's touch...

We are so much lost in our childhood...

That our hearts entirely ignores the present and the past...

 

And as we moved o...

"Strong" that's me

 

"Strong"....

Yes, That's what I am...

That's what I have been believing...

All through these years...

That's what I have been feeling...

All through my paths...

 

And now...

When the time is passing by...

I have realized....

That yes! I am strong...

Yes, I had believed it right..

" I am strong"

May be as strong as the Wind..

Or may be even stronger li...

"Women"

 

She is not gloomy anymore...

She is not weak anymore...

She is no more an innocent bird..

She won't lose herself to their killer instincts anymore..

 

She has learnt to break the darkness...

She has learnt to be a bright day...

She has learnt to tresspas all hurdles...

She has learnt to build her own pathway..

 

She is a sun disguised as a star...

She is the s...

Let that go..

 

"The time" I let it go free...

And it never comes back to me..

But I wait until eternity...

May be there's a hope to get it back to see...

 

The time passes by me...

As I sit silently to watch the departing waves of the sea..

I ask myself "was the sacrifice worth it?"

My heart replies "let it go from your mind as you have allowed it to flee"...

My daughter

 

My morning is beautiful when it starts with your smile...

My day shines with every blink of your eyes...

Every walk along the river is pretty if I feel your touch on my hands...

The breeze brings the love that can never be gained through any price...

 

The care you adorn me with reminds me of my father...

When I am in trouble you take the place of my brother...

You are th...

My thoughts and me

Sitting on the stairs by the shore...

As I watched the reckless waves...

Passing through my feet...

somewhere I was lost in my thoughts...

I couldn't recognize whether those memories were bitter or were they sweet?

 

"It is good to stay blank sometimes"..

I said to myself...

I realized I have been missing this comfort..

Of conversation with only my own-self..

Paralyzed

Traversing through...

A cocktail of dreams and nightmares...

I couldn't realize how many years...

Have passed by my sides...

 

While trying to peep..

Outside I saw...

I have reached a maze ...

Of some strange unavoidable tides...

 

The more I travelled..

The more paralysed I got...

And now that I want to stand still...

My limbs left my side to support...

Haunting Guilt

Suddenly, that phase has arrived...

The past is flaunting itself...

Right in my front...

I am trying to escape..

And to hide...

Running across and around these enclosed walls...

But I am trapped and there remains no way out...

 

The time is rewinding itself back...

As I just can watch and wait...

Assaults of heart aches, getting showered on me...

And countless more...

Hidden Strength

The Sun..

It's radiant, it's mighty...

The igniter of positivity..

and the assence of what life is ...

 

But it's unaware of ....

 

It's  face that is...

Scorching, powerful, strong...

And sometimes the destroyer...

 

Yes.... also a destroyer...

 

It believed it's born to be...

The source of life...

The source to lighten up...

All homes..

Dreams

True that..

Reality often backstabbed my dreams..

Still I house the courage ..

To rebuild them afresh within ...

 

True that...

I see straight pale destinations within some few yards..

However my mind opts...

For the Tangled path to reach the enlightened ones...

 

True that...

They don't leave the slightest chance to embed self doubt in me...

Distance

 

Just a few miles together...

And a never ending age of separation...

Few smiles and a handful of memories...

And they stayed forever in the heart to be my life's inspiration...

 

An unbreakable wall of silence...

Conquered the little world created by us...

Distance widened it's territory so much that now...

Even a scream at the top of my lungs can never invade your ear...

Knotted again

 

A rainy evening...

And a flashback to the yester years...

Some memories flashed like the lightning...

And a smile got canvassed through her wrinkled eyes...

 

While some sips of the hot coffee..

Ran through her congested throat...

A known voice intruded her solitude...

"Is it him?" Was her first thought...

 

And as they stared at each other...

Their lives came...

Set her free

 

Stir up her emotions

And let it settle down

While there may be traces of bitter sediments

Love will float all way around...

 

Let her swim along the sea..

And she will return to kiss your feet...

As she is that handful of sand..

That will escape with every attempt of your grip...

 

Let her thoughts touch the sky...

They will shower on you as a caring downpour....

The conqueror

Differences, yes they exist...

And get stronger...

Bonding with some crowded misunderstandings..

And a handful of jealousy...

But at the end...

'Defeat' flaunts itself on their face..

And destructions transform them to nothing...

While "Love" conquers everything...

 

Boundaries, yes they exist...

And get stronger...

Bonding with some crowded fake norms..

And a h...

Departure

To the person...

With whom I will spend my last days with...

Believe I am someone very ordinary...

But I will be your companion ..

until I continue to breathe...

 

I will rejuvenate your every passing day...

And you will experience your childhood again...

As I might have grown wrinkles on my face...

But my mind never grew up...

And I am always a child from within..

Anatomy of a female life

It has been ages by now...

And she's still walking on...

The roughest streets..

Along the desert..

And under the hottest sun...

 

There may be a few miles left...

Or may be another bunch of ages...

But she's not allowed to quit..

As she's accompanied by tremendous hope...

And a blanket of dreams she has her wrapped in...

 

And the chase continues...

 There's ...

Sleepless

The sky is still awake...

And so am I...

Once again poked by a million thoughts.. They keep lingering through my veins...

 

There's beauty in them..

Traversing across me the entire night ...

Through endless talks with myself..

Is it a pain free drug ...

Or just an addiction...

 

Whatever it is...

It's so pleasant and full of life..

It's a mother to my second lif...

Arrest

 

A drive through the horizon...

And the beauty of that dark night...

I chose the journey without a destination...

Just to treasure it for an entire lifetime...

 

The farther I went..

The clearer it appeared...

As if those streets have been waiting for me....

Through all the ages they had survived...

 

And within some blinks of few moments...

Unknowns became my ...

Past once again

 

 

The evening amidst this moonlight...

Some curvy pathways across the woods...

I am not the solitary Voyager...

Today it's just me and the moon...

 

I fall in love with the stares of the beautiful dusk...

Felt like I got rejuvenated to someone new ...

And as it got rewinded to my beautiful past...

I somehow tasted those moments I had once went through...

Perfection(expectation vs reality)

They said...

It's normal to hide yourself....

Confine, conseal..

Bind yourself within 

Tangled chains of relationships....

And be the one all want you to be...

Walk as they say...

Speak as they expect...

And do what makes them happy...

 

I said...

It's beautiful  to flaunt myself...

Be free, tear the seal apart...

Break free all the chains...

That drags me...

I believe there will be ...
A downpour of eternal  peace...

And as each drop ...
Will touch this ever thirsty earth..
Doors that were been locked since ages..
Will finally see the ray of life...

And so will my imprisoned soul be set free...
There will be freedom...
Freedom for me too...

Restless endangered species...

 

Matured by age..

Still immatured like its thoughts

A house of endless childlike dreams..

And encapsulated by its innocence..

 

As it loitered around the tangles...

Of a crowd of human brains..

Searching for a space to survive..

The Unsolved mystery

I have created a world..
And painted it on the blank canvas of my life...
It's as beautiful as my dreams..
In there I am every creature's queen...

I have decorated it with the love..
That was missing in my real life..
In there every thought of mine is beautiful...
In there imaginations and reality co - exists like soulmates..
They all are parts of my own creativity...

The journey to a woman's heart

She wasnt waiting for an ipod..
Nor was she dreaming about the diamonds..
It wasnt a holiday that could have quenched her thirst..
And none could read the thoughts that were rolling through her nerves..

She was a dot in a crazy crowd..
But still solitude was the only one she could be around..
She smiled, she laughed with all her lungs out..
but deep inside everything was as hollow as a ba...

The Breakthrough


Free from all bars I have been behind..
I wish to see a world ...
That I can feel to be mine..
Which will be the true home I am seeking for..
Where I can be born safe, live safe and die safe..

The one where I can laugh out loud..
At the top of my lungs..
And my laughter will be the music to their ears..

The one where I can speak my heart out..
I can be what I am...
And my words wil...

A flashback

A drive along the winding roads ..
Sensing the breeze close to my heart..
I passed through some echos..
Reciting the story I had lived once..

A playful evening it was..
And I was a part..
That was the world we had sensed..
And life lived all around us...

A sudden unexpected dream..
As it disturbed my sleepy ride..
A restless brain recalled some forgotten pictures..
What appeared was...
