Retrospectively

Screen Shot 2018-06-01 at 1.45.33 am.png

Retrospectively, I can sense

my failures

were never meant

to be successful

in the journey of life,

up and down

I was drowning

into the flood of war.

 

Retrospectively, I can understand

my weaknesses

were never too bold

to take the stand

against the dark

side of yours,

as you were peeling my skin

to show your audacity.

 

Retrospectively, I can see

why I went wrong

to dive into the new waves

so high and natural

to touch the deepest

emotions with calmness

to be craziest of all time.

 

Retrospectively, I can say

I was never like this

insane and wired

so much to explore

through the layers

of insanity and weirdness

still, contented and composed.

 

Even if, I am lost

I love this new dive

Taking me back

To the clusters of shine!!

HEAT

Screen Shot 2018-05-31 at 12.19.19 pm.png

The sunburns are red

The tanning is gold

The marks are real

The sweat is glowing

With the heat of the town.

 

She is burning

He is burning

To fire the conscious

To light the lamp

In the heat of the sun.

 

The craving for water

To dive into the coldness

The hands are cold and wet

Giving the pleasure of ice

In the heat of the moment.

 

The pressure is on the heels

To stop jumping

To restore some energy

In this heat of the sun

Bright and golden

Glowing like a sunflower.

 

Eyes dare not open

In the shiny effect

The glasses kept me close

Waiting for the dark

To come and take

Me away from this heat

For a while.

 

Yet, I love this glow every morning

The heat of Sun!!

Trust

Screen Shot 2018-05-30 at 12.15.29 am

 

 

Having layers so thin

Attached to the strings

Important and must

To carry forward

The loyalty in you.

 

Is it difficult or easy

To take the burden

Is it inbuilt or

We have to build the talent

To satisfy the norms!

 

Can we trust ourselves

To trust the people

Or we have to trust people

To rely on others?

 

The word, trust, can

Either make the bonding

Or break the bond

Submerged in the identity

Of yours.

 

Why we question people

If we have trust

And if we have trust

Why we reply to the questions.

 

The Trust, comes with flavours

With the bubbles of wisdom

Expectations come naturally

to connect together.

 

So, is it hard to trust people

Or oneself!!

Archaic beliefs!

Screen Shot 2018-05-26 at 1.20.22 am

Walking alone

or with someone

giggling alone

or with someone

shining alone

or with someone.

We are all alone

in ourselves,

yet having so

many auras inside

in that alone time.

Surrounded by many

at times,

yet empty inside.

Proving others to be

right, yet guilty

inside.

Have to play

your own game,

either with

honesty or

lust,

you have

to pass the ball.

 

The terms may

be archaic for you

but change the

archaic beliefs

inside,

before changing them

outside!

Be my love!

img_2424.jpg

Take me into your arms

Forget the world

Lean on my chest

To make a move

Of your own.

 

Take me into your soul

Inhale me inside

Love me as much as you can

Show the world, that I exist

In your own style.

 

Take me into your memory

To create the snapshots

To play with the words

Show the world, that I exist

Through your voice.

 

It’s me, your own poetry

Love and live with me

In the manuscripts

Give me any form but

Show the world, that I exist

Through you and only you.

 

Love me as much as you can,

I am your poetry!!!!!

Take a break

Screen Shot 2018-05-23 at 2.14.02 am

Pack your bags

Take a flight

To the dreams

Of wine.

 

Feel that wooziness

Creating much craziness

Was it a passion

Or a desire?

 

Break the rules

Not the laws

Love the people

Not the pretentious.

 

Take a break

From the love

From the hatred

From the schedule

To bump into the reality.

 

Leave the ones

Who ignore you

For the wealth of time

Hold on to those

Who want your time

In the craving of yours.

 

Take a break

From the pretentious

From the disappeared ones

Who appeared and disappeared

In the game of love.

 

Tell the world

To take a break

Not from your dear ones

But for the inner you

To soothe the senses

With the reflection of the tenses!!

Maturity

Screen Shot 2018-05-20 at 2.24.02 am.png

Maturity is intense

To release the tensed

Coming with drawbacks

In a dose of love.

 

He said, “Maturity is key

to end the unwanted shouts,

trying to be real

along with the reflection

in the eyes.”

 

Is maturity ignorance

Is maturity leading to bluntness

Is maturity being self oriented

Or is it necessary to accept the self

Along with the others?

 

The Sun can be dangerous too

Causing premature ageing

The maturity can be dreadful too

Resulting into premature decisions.

 

Why to play with words

Whether you are happy with

Your maturity or not?

Is the question

Of the hour!

MY PHONE

 

Screen Shot 2018-05-16 at 10.06.19 pm

It’s ringing

again and again

to coordinate

with the time.

 

The cords

have connected

the right connection

after a while.

 

Its thin body

has flexible touch

often takes me

into the long

conversations.

 

What if, this

thin and tiny

tool escapes

from my life!

 

I would want

to have a taste

of golden era

with lots of

pride.

 

I admired and envied

this thin object

which can access

my experiences

with the names

on it.
