Come close to life!

Screen Shot 2018-07-09 at 11.58.31 pm.png

Jump into the river

Feel the sun

See the trees

Come close to life.

 

Release the tensions

Close the books

Come out of words

To attain the essence

Come close to life.

 

Stop working for a day

Walk on the streets

Observe the sky

Listen to birds

Chanting to please nature

Come close to life.

 

Stop running for a day

After the goals

Surprise the self

Bear the heat

Of the bright sun

Feel the sweat

Come close to life.

 

Look at the stars

Similar yet different

All over the world

Why differences

Then, here and there

Is it all about perceptions?

 

Commit to the soul

Stop and cease the moments

Come close to life!

Delete

I love this word, delete

Wrapped in shell

Of tiny secrets

In the life.

 

Up and down

Scrolling the entries

In my mind

What to delete

To make the picture

Perfectly clear.

 

I love this word, delete

Wrapped in desire

Of love or hatred

Or the necessity

Of that time.

 

What should be kept

Or deleted

Was the weirdest gap

To fill with the maturity

Of yours.

 

I love this word, delete

Sometimes replaced

By creation

Why to delete, then

Becomes a question

Of the sudden eruption.

 

Creation meant to be deleted

Or it’s the necessity of

Well being.

 

I love this word, delete!!

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!!

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!!

HE AND I

Screen Shot 2018-05-11 at 11.02.18 pm.png

He said, “You have tantrums.”

I said, “ I have mood swings

to balance the equation

to turn on the situation.”

 

He said, “You are insane.”

I said, “I use my mind”

to react abnormally

to act abruptly.”

 

He said, “You are beautiful.”

I said, “I didn’t take a shower, today

to turn on your nerves

to meander along the world.”

 

I said, “You are womaniser.”

He said, “Cake is more delicious

With a blend of cream on it

to fulfil the desires

to arrange the order.”

 

He said again, “ You have tantrums.”

I just smiled and cocooned myself

In a fluffy attire

To erase his words

From the conscious mind!

A cup of coffee

Screen Shot 2018-05-07 at 7.55.40 pm

Bubbles all around

In my cup of coffee

I first saw him

Sipping the coffee

My upper lip was covered

With froth of desire.

 

Bubbles disappear soon

As soon as I sipped my coffee

Scrolling the keys

Reading some random pages

To create the flow of feelings

With the foam of love

Along with the thirsty ideas.

 

Mood was to sip slowly

To hold on the mood gradually

The Beats in the café

Were catching the attention

To dwell on the swing

Of that rendezvous.

 

Coffee was about to finish

Still in the aura of first sip

On the layers of foam

With the froth of will.

 

Wanting more bubbles

In the flight of dreams

The sugary effect was caramelised

To have sweeter and brown memories

In the end of conversation.

 

Could boomerang on me

If given more attention!

If I had known!

Screen Shot 2018-05-02 at 1.45.51 am.png

If I had known that he had some plans up his sleeve, I would have surrendered long back with the storms inside.

 

If I had known, the storms had calmed long back to settle the words inside, knocking to burst out.

 

If I had known, the barriers kept would be the open gates to receive the warm welcome, blushing all the day with the charm.

 

If I had known that he had some tricks up his sleeve, I would have been a white pigeon with closed eyes, cooing all night to have a relaxed tomorrow.

 

But the present said,“ your blind eyes turned to be the milestone of future, giving the treasures along with the pleasures of the life.”
