A Decade Gone By ...



They say better late than never ... I felt the advent of the New Decade (and a year too !!) should be the right time to resurrect my Blog ... I wrote something very amateurish but then I am starting again and I hope the beautiful people who used to follow my blog take it to a new height and convince me not to take it any more to new depths :P. Lets cut the Speech, here is something which summarizes how the boy at the start of the Decade became a man ....

The Decade went by ... With a Blink of an Eye
I lost so much but I won too ...
I hated so many but I loved too ...
I failed so often but I succeeded too ...

I found myself But misplaced you.


Happy New Year and a Decade, I will be trying to chronicle the decade that wasn't in my other Blog, see you there.

Coming Back To Life .....




This Blog and its sibling had died out of malnutrition but something stirred and ... so I hope it gets further nourishment.

A moment of silence prevailed ... when I waited for her and I wait for her
I gasp when I see her, its not her deep eyes .... neither her beauty ...
but her love for me ... the mountains, the oceans ... they all fail.

Dawn ...

Dawn it is after the clueless night … the infinite struggle and endless fights;

Now free from the shackles you are ready to flow

With sunshine on your shoulders and wings to grow.

Gift


I sat down to think what I shall gift you

 

May be, your portrait

Made on a blank canvass with the rainbow

Reflecting your essence and glow

 

Or

 

May be, a heavenly drape

Made out of god’s own satin

To drape you, the Venus of Latin

 

Or

 

May be, a jewel

Made form the light of the stars

To adorn your visage and heal your scars

 

Or

 

May be, some chocolates

Made from devil’s own beans

For you to savor whenever you feel lean  

 

But

 

I know what to give you

A song from the core of my heart

For you to listen and your soul to think

And for your eyes to see what slowly sinks.  


p.s: Hey friends, sorry for this delay between posts. Hope you all are fine and haven't lost interest in my obscure blog. By the way I have also posted on my other blog,  Limit is Limitless ... I think it should be a fun read.

Soulful Eyes ...




I threw a stone into the pond; it went down without a sound … the ripples like the waves in my heart; after I drowned in her soulful eyes …



p.s: Hey folks I was planning something special double whammy for both my blogs together but couldn't finish it in time. I will be on the move for the next week or so, so until then enjoy the soulful eyes.

Love can Heal and Forgive ...



Last night it rained after a long toil
Releasing the fragrance from the virginal soil
Lulling me to sleep with the pitter patter and the breeze
Making me believe in thou power to heal and forgive …

Love never failed ... won't ever fail ...



She was not blind but she couldn't see; Her eyes were all right but her mind wasn’t free. She groped in the dark for eternity; until His voice gave her back the clarity.

And suddenly, again the silence prevailed; But her love for him, never failed.
It will never fail....

Infinite Colours .. Infinite possibilites ...



The canvas of life …
some wants to colour it red, some blue … some even Black.
What I want is white, the color of infinity ...
infinite possibilities for you, me and all.



p.s: I have been tagged for 25 random things about me and the post is in my other Blog 'Limit is Limitless'. Sophie you have been tagged. Any one else who wants can take it up too.

Women ..



Its Women's Day today, the day to celebrate the kind without whom the world is incomplete. I could write more but I am too overwhelmed. An Ode to you Eve:

From the first words a baby says
To the final whisper on my last days

The inspiration to write, the courage to fight
The failures and fears; the sky and sunlight

The teacher, the angel or the bitch
The nightingale, the nurse or the one to stitch

The doting mother to the loving wife
From my first heart break to my last crime

She is every where, she is Life
The Woman

Happy Women's Day

Everyday the rays of Sun wakes me up
The Devil knows what it beholds
Mountain tops, bottom of Seas or the breeze & glee
I will climb, I will swim ... I will fight
Even If I know none of these ...

Every Night ..



“Coming back to Life” I “Wish you were here”…, the notes of Floyd waft past me;
As I try to catch my sleep by counting countless sheep.
Night after night the guitar wails
But still why do I fail, fail to make a song for you in my dreams
To wake every morning and sing ... not scream … !!

Limitations in Love ...



One fate less night; the humming bird discovered the moon … how vain he wanted to feel her; he flew and flew, endless... Tired and broken … Alas!! Didn’t he know he is just a humming bird …?

Valentine Day ...



As it has been for the last 23 years, I am alone on this special day. The day due to which, Archie's etc. has a fields day despite the economic recession. I thought lets write an ode to this day, a sad one though.

The song on my lip
Has no meaning or drift
If I get on, back on the road
My lonely soul
Aches for its goal
Come fill me with, love and adore

She never realized
Might never realize
But I will remain for my valentine
I have weathered the wind
I will weather the storm
In the hope that, the end will be mine

It has started to rain
Are my prayers in vain
I am in love, with my pain
This is the story
Of every broken heart
Clich├ęd might be, but never stops

This Valentine, every valentine
I promise to wait for divine
Staying for the one, with my back on the wall
I am sitting and humming my song

The Sun ...

The night engulfs me in darkness but lights up my dreams
It is not a matter of choice, rather free will …
As I will rise again tomorrow with promises to fulfill …

Flower Girl ...


Happy New Year every body, I could have posted something but wanted to start the year with a bang. A new song, the inspiration to write it happened last October but could not finish it for the last few months. One fine morning I woke up with a lingering thought about her and every thing fell into the place. Enjoy ...



She has a smile like the sun so bright

She is a poet’s delight

She moves like a breeze, taking away my peace

I can’t even stop to sneeze


One day walking down the lane

I don’t know from where she came

The flower girl so full of life

Drives me to drown in her tide


Her eyes are like the embers of sky

It makes me want to fly

She talks like a child, it drives me wild

I can’t even stop to breathe


One day walking down the lane

I don’t know from where she came

The flower girl so full of life

Drives me to drown in her tide
