Life is just an illusion. But you my dear friend, are the magician.
June 22, 2019
 

I head to a bar
And sip on some cognac.
I have always been this person
who finds erratic ways to cope up with the pain.
Who would know it better than you?
The first you saw me
Was In a lounge where our story rests
Rolling a couple of joints
And sipping on some beer.

But this time
It was different  
I reeked of alcohol in a bar
That reeked of loneliness
And before the whiskey could hit me
Your memories did.
There is a table
On the extreme corner           
Of this empty bar
Where I used to sit
And tell stories of heartbreaks
To the walls that listened
And at other times
Closed down on me.
Nostalgia comes and takes a seat
Next to mine
And slides a postcard...

I told the winds
To calm down
Because
I couldn't talk
To my heart
And ask it
To stop running
When the eyes
Met yours.

The winds calmed down
The breezes
Clung to me
Like they clung
To your dancing
Balletic hair
And I stood by the window
While you walked
Down below.
My eyes met yours
Teary
And swollen.
The breezes kissed me
And I lit it
Again.
The cigar
Made me think
About you. Go

It might be the herb
The leaves
Packed
In a joint resting
Between my fingers.
Or the
Glass
Half filled
With single malt
That stares me
In the eye,
Resting on the table
Beside me.

It might be the pictures
That make me go crazy
Or is it the joint?
Or the drink?
Or our memories?
Whatever it is
Summed up in a picture.
They were your thoughts
Glowing in my face
When the light hit me
And there
In my picture
Were you
More than me.

Away.
Far away from this world,
this life.
Far away
from the boredom
and the never ending,
deafening silence.
Let's go somewhere
Around the hills
In that valley
or that ridge
somewhere between the calm
and freshness
somewhere
in the woods.
And fall in love
with each other.

Under that moonlit sky
on a full moon night
While I see you
Glowing
in the silver light
we'll count the scars
and the stars
And fall in love.


With the cosmos
and you
For in your eyes
resides a cosmo
more yours
and less mine
but still
I'm more yours
and you
a little less mine.

I hear you sing with earphones plugged in my ears and fall in love. You don't believe in love. So I'll rather put it this way. I'm not falling in love with you. I'm falling for you. Your voice reverberates in my ears. It's been just two days since we met and it's been two days since I've started living. Not just living but also believing in some things I had entirely lost hopes of.

You're the one who can put a smile on my face no matter what.
My days are spent waiting to meet you and see you, evenings with you and nights in thinking and writing about you.

Your hair. The way they move. The way they dance in the breezes, swiftly and effortlessly. I remember them rubbing against my arms ...

I wish I could carry your heart
In my hand
Or the pocket
Of my shirt
Where it embraces
Mine
Through a curtain
Of translucent skin.

I wish I could keep your heart
Somewhere
In the drawer
Of my study table
Or between the pages
Of my favorite
Poetry book

I wish I could place your heart
Under the pillow
While I went to sleep
Or just thought about
You,
At night;
Sometimes during day,
Or if I could just
Place it
On the desk
In my classroom
On the notebook
And pen down stories
And poems
About how it breaks
And how it bleeds.

I wish I could have your heart
If not your soul
I wish I could have your heart
If not you.

Some people don't write anymore. They improved and evolved. And also became emotionless. Creativity has bid them goodbye in smoke and compressed into stars, constellations. They just play with words. They weave them into magic.

She was one of them.
I was a writer though,
But she, she was a magician. She still is. She always has been. She always will be.

She was one of those with hazel eyes with the sun reflecting on her pupils in the corner like that bright star that glows from far in the galaxy, the brightest, a little curved as if viewed from a telescope.

She had something about herself. Something that just doesn't let her get off my mind. Something about the fragrance that followed h...

People dance when the music comes in,
And they cry when the words hit them.
Just a little tale of melody. Of words making love to music.

Amidst friendships and euphoria,
And love beside them with a cigarette dangling.
Somewhere
Between those stages
Of subconscious and consciousness
I failed
To find
A safe haven.

But somewhere between the search
Of reality and truth
I looked around
To find
A cure.
Memories were
The tonic
That would heal.
And cover
The wounds

The one that would leave scars
On skin
To bring back
The memories
To heal.

The perpetuity
And the euphoria
The back and forth
Brought me
Back and forth
To you.
Time and Time again.

Never had I known
You're not of me
But I am
Of you, yours
Since long
Until forever.

The words clung on to the scarred skin to weave stories.

Dripping rum
Set them free
Into nothingness.

Craving for a touch,
Volatile,
Vulnerable
Those words.

A slight
Sensuous touch
Of the moonlight.
And they were stars.

Part of a constellation.
Each star
A sentence.

And a constellation
Unheard
Our story
Unknown
Shining in the sky above.

A poet
And a poetess
Fell in love.
And their union
Like a night sky
A star and the moon
Playing hide and seek
Behind the covers
Of clouds.

Their passion
Dripping down their
Young skins
With drops of rum
Dripping down
Their tongues

They embraced
The voids
The flaws
And their stories
Clinging to each other
With words
Wringing out
Of their wrenched hearts.

A poet
And a poetess
Fell in love.
Their union
Like the evening sky
Where the day kisses
The night.
And the heavens blush
Unknowingly
In the open
Clear
Evening sky.

Roses rained
On their skins
And honey dripped
Off their skins.
Their sensuous touches
Crawling
Through each other's bodies
Gently
Like a dead leaf
Floats
And flies
In...

I peel off the skin,
Chapped,
Dried,
A little burnt,
From the scorching
Cigarette filters
Clenched tightly
Between my lips.

I peel off the skin,
Slowly and steadily.
Dead as it is,
A part of me.


A part you kissed
Chapped
Dried
A little burnt
Since you left
And most importantly
Dead.

I peel it off
So that
I embrace someone,
Kiss someone.
And they don't
remember
Or know,
What it was like,
With you...

If she's better
Or you were...

Winter was leaving.
And for the last few days that were left, chilly breezes knocked on the window every night, craving the warmth of your memories.

Time, memories and winter.

It was the perfect setup to talk about you.

About all the secrets I know.
About all the things you hate and all the things you love.

And talk.

About your smile.
About your face.
About your eyes.
About your soul.

But I'm not the only one to know them now.
The constellations now are embracing the night. For in the morning, they'll leave.
They way you did.
To be a part of some other Galaxy.

And here I'll be like the moon.
Coming out every night, fading out more every night into the darkness.

Some of me ...

The sky is a graveyard
Embedded with those lost,
Sparkling with life;
And the gazes
Of those silent
Broken
Sobbing
Incomplete
Lovers.

Each breath
That flows
Before just kissing
The scars
On their shattered heart
A tribute
To their once
Loving and intact
Souls.

The breezes
That whizz past you
Embracing
The tears
That rest
On your cheeks
And are buried
Right there
Are the roses
Which dance
To the melody
Of love
Of pain.

You don't trap
Your soul
You are not
A cage
To do that.
I see you
Every night
Letting it out
Into that
Graveyard
That sky is.

And you weep
For the dead you are
But not lost.

Let the night
Kiss the scars
Let the night
Remember the gone.
Let the night
Scream in...

Close your eyes
And elevate
Into the infinite expanse
Of the world
Where two souls intertwine
And unite
In the middle
Of the road of nothingness.

Close your eyes
And come a little closer
So that I fade
In the warmth
Of your breaths.

Close your eyes
And lose yourself,
As I did,
And embrace
The union of our lips.
The softness of your lips,
Against the gore
Dripping off mine.

Close your eyes,
And imagine us
In a world
Where we're the only inhabitants.

Close your eyes
And elevate
Into the infinite expanse
Of the world
Where two souls intertwine
And unite
In the middle
Of the road of nothingness.
Close your eyes.

It was a cold evening. Autumn was bidding farewell to the lonely world after having embraced it with it's metaphoric poetry that was seen only by the teary eyes or hearts that were drenched in love. The crumpled leaves engulfed the paths like a carpet that had been laid down for the fall to depart to come again after the scorching summer heat had quaffed the inhabitants of the exhausting ordeal in wait of warmth that soothed their shivering souls.

I walked on the leaf-laden path aimlessly, waiting for the tempest to come and pass by so I could enjoy the squall and cherish the silence that it leaves behind. The path looked squalid to many but I and many other who shared warmths or craved i...

Letters I wrote to her
Letter no. 1

Death, I have seen triggers the heart to flow in the commodious ocean of of love.
You see, you hear of someone dying and you're suddenly it by a huge restlessness. An unheard commotion deep within that flashes ardent memories from the past and pulls you into the labyrinth of love, not out of sympathy but out of the thought of being able to make last memories to be cherished.
To see a smile on that face, because it might be there for the last time before the eyelashes kiss and unite forever.

I thought of a life without you, thought so for just a few minutes before those thoughts could captivate the happiness you had gifted me with. I thought of a l...

Let's get lost in a night,
A night in which we don't make love,
A night in which we don't cuddle,
A night in which we don't share words,
A night in which we just share our togetherness,
And embrace the presence of each other's soul.
A night far away
From words and expressions.
A night in which we just share moments
And don't intertwine in any sense.
A night in which,
We look up at the sky and talk to the moon,
A night in which stars are our only companions
And silence the only language.

When you come to visit me
This time,
I'll not utter a word
And hold your hand.

I'll lead you through the attic
With no words said,
No thoughts shared
To the dim room
Of memories.

Where love resides
And our story lies hidden.

I'll let the memories
Take over the moment
And warp dimensions
To freeze that moment.

For that second;
Will be my last.
And before it passes
And loses its worth
In the enclosing measurements
Of breaths
known as 'time'.

And before its lost,
I want to be lost
With you
Into oblivion.

The light in the room
Will walk away to
give us a moment of togetherness.

And in that silence,
In that nothingness,
In that loneliness,
I won't be...

And I'll still remember

And I'll still feel the warmth

A smile,
Too enticing,
That calls for love
From each shred of my bone.

The porch,
the aisle,
the balcony,
the terrace,
the room
Each corner smells of you.

There's a part of you,
a part of you
in the memories
that engulf my vision
on those abandoned,
lonely roads.

Where my hand craves
the touch of your
warm skin.
Where my fingers wait
to intertwine with yours.

Where my smile waits
for your presence.
Because it doesn't come to me,
Unless I look at you
and absorb enough of you
in my veins
to breathe
and achieve solace.

The stories I write,
The poems I pen down,
The heartbreak that I speak of,
Has remnants of you.

The breaths felt heavy as the sun drowned behind the mountains, to kiss the horizon once again after the moon had flirted with and embraced the stars after a night.
The stars shined bright and casted the light to my eyes, their image distorted by the curvature of a bottle that lay abandoned in front of me.
The bottle had glitters floating in the vacuum inside it.
Little did I know, in this brief period of musing that I was captivated in, the night wasn't going to leave me any less befuddled.
And there was life's wile for me, lying in a bottle. The bottle of memories.

The thundering breezes suddenly fainted to witness a broken heart get sloshed in memories. The stars shimmered to fix ...

My teardrops rest on the paper now, embracing the ink and blotting it. This was another letter I sat down to pen to be sent to you. But this time it was different. This time blotted ink was a mark that would tell you about the tears that I cried while remembering you.
The tears of wait. The tears of longing for a letter you never sent. The tears that seek the answers to the questions that I ask. But these tears evaporate away too quickly when the volatility of time takes them away into the sublimity of life.
I write down to you. I will, always. For not just this lifetime but for the coming ones too. For ages. For seasons that pass. For decades. For centuries. For eons.
Because every time...

The sombre sky of this languid evening was very much different today, perhaps because I didn't have to ache my neck and crane it upwards to look at it but instead, I just had to gaze down to see the clouds floating like damp cotton balls, as if they seized some pain inside them, collecting miseries of souls above whom they hovered. 35,000 feet above the ground , high above; amidst these clouds of sorrows, I stared out of the tiny window into oblivion to see the horizon painted in different shades of soothing fire of passion. Of compassionate love. Of shades of red, orange and yellow.

A flock of birds flew by as if to peck the floating yet stagnant clouds to mould them into messages for a lo...

Honey your soft skin
I wonder where have you been?

You mesmerize; you hypnotize
Moments with you looks enticed!

You & Me, let's add up some spice
Hold your breathe, close your eyes

Will give you a pleasant surprise...

I lean in a little, diving in your deep eyes
Entangled in it, my emotions can't hide
Holding you, my heart is gushing
When you shy I love that blushing

Embracing your touch...
Forgetting all the petty lies.

Your warmth entices my heart & everything looks so fine...
As I wrestle your tongue down with mine.

Nothing at this moment is verbal
The love we have is eternal.

Also, thank you Vidya for the help. The efforts you...

What do you seek in the mirror?
In the stagnant water of the pond when you look at it?
What do you seek in the reflection?
It's you staring back into your demonic eyes,
That will open up into your angelic soul.
And confront you with the little flower of life that awaits it's continuum to eternity,
Once swayed by the breezes of love.
