Being Loved 

Wednesday, August 8, 2016 . No comments yet . Posted in General

So I’ve been taking a backseat, getting rid of all those unwanted thoughts and norms of life. It’s hard to move on with a heavy heart, burning the bruises over and again. Every time when I do so, feel much lighter and higher than everything that blocked my way. It’s all about priority. The dusk that binds the sight is unsure about the dawn that glitters with hope. The nature is always a treat for the eyes and writing is the key to keep me awake, alive. Being loved and burying woes makes us stronger. And I feel, giving out love to the ones who care for us is the best thing ever.

Insomnia

Wednesday, December 12, 2015 . No comments yet . Posted in General

                      Another dull day passed by… through the maddening crowded bay… Perhaps the world ends here, I thought! But it’s a loop, recurring with many known faces and tales. Social media with social messages aren’t working anymore. I find people confused and rigid to express their views. There is a sense of dissatisfaction. Antipathy! Gone are the days where we used to take our time in flaunting our love to our dear ones. Technology distanced us so far! It’s become easier to distance ourselves from everyone lately. Life is short. But the days appear longer. What’s next? Solitude! Since I’m used to it, everything and everyone around me lights up with the colors of harmony. Life beckons good days!

Returning Home

Sunday, November 11, 2015 . 1 comment » . Posted in General

I’m learning to write… It’s been 2 long years since I wrote something in here. But I feel good, because I’m able to feel… You know, there are things that lift you up and put you down.

“Man, I’m so full of love, but I’m so numb to express it”. He said!

Today, as I stay away from these so called inane posts on social media portals, and all that… I reckon… the days I spent with my grandfather.

Life is good! I still live in the same era. I’m… And I’ll… Forever and ever…

Give Me A Smile

Wednesday, May 5, 2013 . 4 comments . Posted in General

I have forgotten the sunset so soon. It appeared so bright to me. So soon it left me alone. But I believe that it will come again tomorrow. Sometimes I wish if I could lend my hand to someone in need. There are many faces dragging me away. Some of them just need a listening ear. Some of them just want to share their bliss. All I need is a sensitive heart who could feel the power of my words. There are so many things in my wish list. I haven’t really started chasing any of them. As a child I believed in the pull of magnet. Things don’t come to us, until we take a step towards it. These are the times where millions and billions of activities (mostly mundane) happen in our daily lives. Everybody around me is looking out for something and someone new in life. I am yet to refine my mind. I am in a fix to choose the wide opened doors that leads me to a sanctuary. There are many paths in the picture to break through. Freedom is an expensive gift. It’s not for sale (unfortunately).

The land that I’ve come from never had sorrows. The art of the heart is known to only those who had been through thorns and stones.

Let the sun rise again, lest if the rain never pours down. To anticipate any is the true form of living. For you never know what tomorrow may bring to you.

A Secret…

Monday, April 4, 2013 . No comments yet . Posted in General

Have I tasted a forlorn day yet again?

Have I feared of this day then?

Oh well, I knew once I was a little child

All calm, at peace, adored and loved!

How could I paint when the picture –

On this wall tells the same tale again?

How could I touch your heart?

When we just lay shielded by secrets?

I know… we need to… take a walk…

When the thunder strikes,

And the mighty rain pours…

But how could we possibly take a chance?

When I know you’re just another star

Shining steadily in the deep blue sky!

And how could I possibly dream of you?

When I know you’re already smiling

Sinking or swimming in my heart?

Oh, have I tasted a forlorn day?

I was just a little child then,

All calm, at peace adored or loved…

I know… we need to… take a chance…

But… I know we would meet again…

I know… we would…

One day… someday…

I know… we would meet with a kiss…

I know…

I know…

Light That Never Fades

Sunday, March 3, 2013 . 1 comment » . Posted in General

Engulfed by the power of your kindness! I wish I could spin a dice and choose a number for you. Perhaps, the best – among the rest! You know you have come a long way. Sometimes it’s hard for us to swim against the tide. We are left with no other choice, but to try. And we try, try, try, and try… Sometimes we find it hard to read the ache that we see in others. Their eyes are soaked with memories… Some of them wish to relive… Some just want to bury them aside.

I know you feel a little lost. You do not like to talk about it. You think it’s not the best idea to open the closed chapters in life. Well, I feel it’s good to talk, take a chance, try to learn and move on. We live in a world where clowns are given the power to rule us. We live in a world where fake plastic trees are adorned with stars and lights for carnivals. We live in a world where the kind of love that we give isn’t enough for a heartfelt smile. We give, give, give, and give… Sometimes it’s all about silence with no surprises… Sometimes it’s all about the song that we listen to… Well, we say or at least think “Oh! Man, he is bleeding inside…” It’s probably we could feel the pain… We could relate with his ache… And then you may add another line by saying “Such a sweet soul… Who must have hurt him…? Who must have…?” All of us have done that… You may say “Look, there, there… Look at them… Look at him… her… Oh, no…” Well, if the fingers are pointed against the mirror, these questions will have an impact. I do that quite often… Especially on a tired night, when I find it hard to sleep, broken by the scenes from my memory, I get up… trade a smile… and say, “It’s you who needs to change…”

Engulfed by the power of your love! I wish I could spin a dice and choose a number for you. Perhaps, the best – among the rest! But I’m just an ordinary man who’s trying to polish myself through my words. The best that we could do to each other is, pray! Someday, when we find it hard to see the light, inside a tunnel, the only thing which could get you out is prayer. Remember, the power of your mind is mightier than the hurdles that you crossed. Let the light in us brighten this dark world.

When Dandelions Fly

Saturday, September 9, 2012 . 1 comment » . Posted in General

Alone I walked through this dream

Alone I will fly away…

Late last night when the candles lit,

my weary eyes blazed in the mirror.

I seldom smile before me…

For my eyes could never hide tears…

So I spurned the forlorn days

and unbolted the doors of reverie

and walked a mile through the wilds,

with the winter girl’s hymn in the woods.

My gray hair swam in the cold gust…

I turned and looked,

and wandered here and there…

I heard her echoes from distant hills

“Cross the stream,

Your tears; the river,

Let the candles rage,

and see the sky reflect

the shine of thy smile”

Dry leaves beneath me flipped and flew

The dandelions fled with its golden wings.

I could hear the voice so nigh

I could hear the words so nigh

At the end of the Dale,

When the stream basked at sight,

Where it lay with its startling shine,

I stood and smiled…

Forgoing all my bitter tales…

Before Night Falls

It is raining outside

Baby, it’s not just your eyes

Look, see the light

See the blue

Your world is not dark

Your day is not done

There will be many faces

There will be many phases

Let the song of your soul, soak

All your hidden worries

All you’re, a form of mud

There will be many phases

There will be many faces

Preaching

Teaching

Screaming

But, babe, we will die one day

Like the rest of them

And if the smile in the pictures

Keeps you awake

And happy,

Baby, let us smile once again

Look, see the bridge

It’s glowing

Under the moonlight

Let it remain for another hour

Let it remain until I reach to you

Shine

You got to shine

Some people are meant to fade

Some people are meant to hate

Some scenes are meant to ache

Come on,

On more time,

Let the light wrap your face

And the rains tickle your pain

Slowly

Softly

We will rove there…

We shall meet there…
