I’ll be the waves and you be a strange shore
I shall roll on and on and on
Each time crashing into your soul
A little bit more…

We never know where we are headed or what our final destination is, but still we weave our stories and give perfect happy endings to it. Life doesn’t always go as we want it to and somewhere along the way we lose our way.

Here’s something I had composed a while ago. It’s not related to COVID-19 in anyway. I guess we all must be having an overdose of corona virus related news and write-ups. But if I decide to stretch this poem too have some connection with the current situation, it all can be summed up in the last two lines…Coz that’s what is keeping us afloat in this dark types. HOPE…

If you are a 90s kid born in India, you will remember how songs made us all fall in love with love. Music, especially the Bollywood romantic and the Hindi Pop, was a huge part of our childhood. We danced to the peppy tunes, hummed along with the singers, and played out make believe stories. I’m sure all of us must have longed to grow up and fall head over heels in love with someone just so that we could experience all those things expressed in the songs! Heck, I even wanted that certain someone to sing those songs to me…

I had written this earlier, but this seems to go perfect with Sue‘s Photo Prompt for this week. Hope you guys like it. 🙂
He playfully ruffles my hair, leans in closer to kiss my forehead but suddenly stops short. I hold his gaze and watch as the ghost of the laugh we just shared gets eclipsed by intense thoughts. I know what he is thinking…and maybe he is right. Continue reading The fate bleeds…
The ocean inspires many things. Here’s my entry for the Weekly Photo Prompt hosted by Sue Vincent.
I stood on the edge of ecstasy
As you wrapped your arms around me
Easing into your ebb and flow
Like a ship at the high sea

They say ‘When the time’s right, things will work out. Trust the timing of your life.’ But what if life has it all wrong? What if what was actually meant to be will now never be because the clock struck off wrong or the stars didn’t align properly? Does timing and fate really matter?

People ask me why my poems are full of unfulfilled love. Always asking if I am sad, hurt or just incapable of writing anything remotely happy. But I think there’s a certain kind of beauty in sadness. There is beauty in longings and beauty in separations. Here’s yet another poem and yes as always it is a bit sad. It talks about tainted unfulfilled love and of loneliness that follows after a blissful union. Hope you all like it.

How beautiful it feels to be in love. Especially when you experience such feelings for the very first time. Its actually like a scene out of a movie. Everything seems just perfect.
Sharing with you my first brushes of “love”, a poem that I composed for “him” back in 2008. Here’s to those “young” and “in love”! Continue reading Courage of Desire
ALMOST, it’s probably the saddest and the most incomplete word in the English language. It comes with a sense of some easily avoidable loss. Like the feeling you get when you miss a train by just a few seconds; you almost boarded it! Or when the last piece of chocolate that you have been saving turns bad; you almost ate it yesterday! Or when playing basketball, your ball bounces off the basket ring; you almost scored!
It’s a word which brings a lot of near misses. Have you ever had an “almost” in your life? A dream job that you almost landed. An exercise regime that you almost successfully followed. Or perhaps a person with whom you “almost” had a chance at having it all…
