His lover’s arms

He couldn't help but imagine
in a restless night
How would it be to fall in his lover's arms?
He wouldn't need any soothing words today
just the eyes of the one he trusted most 
was enough
more than any affirmation
can ever possibly say

No shadows or hunters
could hunt him now
For he and his lover would be together
inside this unbreakable bond
all magic would fail to break
this love borne charm;

This mystical fairytale
known to the world or not
will someday be his
when he would be in his lover's arms
on a restless night he thought.

Acceptance

His breath was more refreshing
and lively than
Choking of his dreams
Reality was more believable
Than bleakness of nightmares
His reality held more hope
Than horrors of his dreams.
What changed?
he ? Maybe.
Maybe his reality
is beautifully bearable now.
Or simply believable.
Maybe.

Things can get ugly at times, often we know we should fight back, stand up, carry on or just move on. but we don’t want to, there is fear,hesitation ,anger or just we get tired. And resign to feel anything in our own worlds.

It’s completely okay, stay there, but after a time we got to accept. Acceptance is simply ‘it is what is’ , want to change something- ‘go ahead definitely’ and if you don’t want to ‘live with it’. But accepting is the key , it is the first step.

veil of love.

You came with a veil of love
i stood there smiling
you looked peaceful as a dove
i stood there smiling
you whispered some words
i couldnt decipher
you said it again
and this time i paid attention
"you look amazing, my love"
i started laughing
confusion swarmed your face
i initiated to clear this mess
you were shocked to hear what i said
i think you looked far beyond mad
what could i have said
to turn ocean of love into
droplets of rain?

"yesterday you looked in the mirror,
when your mask, your veil, on the floor fell,
you thought nobody saw you,
there was a soul evidence of that hell"

Chaotic place

messed colours depicting the messed emotions on canvas
A chaos filled space
When did exactly optimism leave this place?
Blames are unlimited and unbound
Cry for help muffled amid all these sounds
Gratitude is fake and flimsy
Leave empathy,
Even facade of sympathy is clumsy
 
One’s narcissism is greater than
Other’s deeds and efforts
No room for discussion,
Straight to rebellion and action
 
 
Warriors of hope are bleeding
Their armours cut to the ground
Still tending the fallen’s wound
Their light has begun to flicker
Efforts turn hopeless in constant bicker
 
As if hope doesn’t dare visit here
patience has long broken in tears
As things would anyway stay the same
Still trying and trying
And trying will be a shame
 
A Kind little voice still hangs
onto scattered shreds
For betterment of this chaotic place
In the end
Dies unheard unfelt
In this broken chaotic space.

Water spinach tales

He was sitting there
All alone,
Not an inch of smile
Trimmed white beard
Shining grey eyes
Never changing
Neat and combed hair
Always ready to go,

What was he doing?
10 year old peeked
So engrossed with his water spinach
Yes you heard it right
Didn’t even notice
Curious looking eyes
Finding the best stem
To make a whistle
As usual
His favourite exercise
He found one finally
Whistled it loud
All satisfied with himself
Corners lifting just a little
Above his mouth,
He gave an illusion
Of a smile,

I’m holding a pipe now
Perfect or not
I don’t know
But there is no whistle
I miss that old man
More than ever now.
