In lush green forests of gloom I roam In places no one will ever find
August 20, 2019
 

I'm the guardian of a beautiful heart
That I'm protecting from the world
I'm scared to take it and show it to you
Because it breaks at the slightest drop

It sings the most beautiful songs
It dances to unknown tunes
It conjures up beguiling fantasies
And cries over forgotten dreams

It is already broken in a lot of places
It doesn't appear as good as it used to be
Still it is the only thing that belongs to me
And I'm supposed to take care of it until I die

It is also my most beautiful possession
So sometimes I feel like showing it too
But the world doesn't sense its fragility
And more often than not, a crack ensues

It was once so beautiful to see
But nowadays its filled with scars
But ...

Will our love snow
like the morning snow
Will our love rain
like the monsoon rain
When our love kindle
lightnings rare
Will it make us glow
like we're on fire

Is our love blue like
the oceans blue
Is our love white like
the morning light
When our love gets blown
in fiery storms
Will our love find
and hold us tight

When time takes out
the best in us
When I look like
someone else
When I get old and
out of date
Will your arms reach out
and be my sight

Though you are
a million miles away
And you don't hear
what I say
And our lives may take
different paths
In spite of all,
love will find a way

Give me to life
A river that flows blue
Out of this strife
To a love that's true

Surrender your lies
And meet me now
Let's flow over skies
Bask in the morning glow

Where moon sets in snow
And sun hasn't yet born
We'll travel through that door
To that land unknown

Where the rivers flow skywards
And oceans laugh
There lived a man
Who sang songs of love

He loved to eat berries
And roam in wild
With a pleasant tune, he hurries
Through the waterside

His lover waits at distance
Across the mountain pass
He sails over the laughing oceans
He flies with the guiding stars

Maturity is a measure
of disappointments
Writing is a measure of how
deep you feel
Smiling is a way
to hide the pain
And still loving is
the way to live.

One of the things that we lose being adult is the sheer wonder how beautiful this world is.

        How majestic the trees sway from side to side in wind like lovely ladies in a church choir. how vast blue skies are. how flocks of clouds move like people walking to distant lands in search of better future.

And these things come back to us only sometimes when we hear some music that take us back over the long distances we have moved in time, if only for sometime.

             And then we are back here again walking to our workplaces, walking to our hostels, dragging the sack of frustrations and faded dreams and friendships that we can't even remember where we lost. Memories that we kept ...

If every wish had been fulfilled
If every dream has been realised
If every love had been reciprocated
If every heart had known only pleasure

If every man was safe
If every second was sweet
If everything was as good as it can be
There would be no poems, songs & stories.

There are some people we know
Who we want to hold in our hands take
Inside our hearts & never show the world

Some people who are too wrong for us
And who sometimes we wish
It better to have never met

For they go to such depths in our minds
Breaking the foundations of our hearts
Unheeding our incessant cries
And hide inside those unknown caves

And sometimes when we walk through
Those memory lanes, we see them
Again and feel that pain

I'm talking about those people
Who were never really meant for us
Those people who come into our lives
Just for a little time and go

Just to tell us there will always be things
That even when everything else is attained
Will magically be never ours...

You'll be sucked into a storm of lifetime
And a rain that will blanket us forever
And shield us from the bonds of time
Which can only fashion us a garland of woes
While we swim through a river of euphoria
And live at the bottom of a bright blue reef
Where I'll lullaby you every night to sleep
Knowing that you'll always be mine

The truth of life is that you shouldn't expect love from those who you care about. You truly may not have any feelings for those who love you and those you love may not even know how much you care for them. Unrequited love is all there is and those who have loved the most might have been the ones starved of it to death.

And today she looked at me
Like all men want to be looked at
It was not desire I saw in her eyes
It was devotion and there fell my heart.

I find peace in the fact that one day you'll be dead and so will I be.
One day it wouldn't matter what you did. One day it wouldn't matter you never saw my heart.
And one day I will be
too deep in that slumber to feel pain,
   too distant to know that you didn't care,  
    and too lifeless to carry all that sadness.

I walk into the forest of life
And all I see is a mist of gloom
I look up at the sunless sky
And all I see are clouds of grief

I'm hunted by this juggernaut
As I walk towards the east
I should keep carrying on
Or get consumed by this beast

I'm walking on this winding road
And I cannot stop and rest
I should better keep moving on
Or get buried under the crust

No one's seen the exit door
And no one's got the key
But I should keep trying more
Or get marooned in his sea

I never thought I'd fall in love
Oh boy! how wrong was I!
I tried not to follow her
But you know how these things are

Long hours in bookshops,  
Occasional tea
Stolen looks from distance
And a casual Hi!

This girl is all seasons
Summer, winter, spring
This girl is also the sky
The clouds, cold air, hurricane

She loves the songs I don't
She takes the light when I hide
She's nothing like me in so many ways
But I love her, so that's all fine

I don't know where this girl will take me
But what I can tell you is this
That wherever that place may be
With her, It will be home

Look at me bleeding
Hear my plight
Find me in darkness
In depths beyond dreams

I'm a holy knight
Destined for light
Standing at this dead end
Lost of faith

I walked through a thousand paths
A thousand turns I took
But every single one of them
Took me back to this wall

Why do no one come through these parts
Why is this loneliness numbing my mind
I was told I'd be a golden knight
That men will sing my tale

I stomped along the King's road in pomp
Till this wall brought me to a halt
There is choice that I have to make
To struggle or take a walk back

The hole offers me the way back home
A safe house for my sunken heart
And the wall offers me despair
Till my soul abandon it's home

I won...

I wait here in this lowland 
for my love, as I does 
for cold rains in summers and 
nights strangely silent. 

Love will come from abyss 
to take me home and caress 
and give my life all those things 
that are long amiss.

Rains had come every year
Drenching Earth cold and damp
Breaking soil, forcing streams
Looking man through crystal eyes

And rains must have seen
Us who stood looking out
From our windows, at the trees
Feeling beautiful and a little cold

People who had never had
A better friend than monsoon rains
That made their hearts, a little dance
And washed away unseen tears

Monsoon brought them a second life
For a little part of the year
Made men little boys again
And women pretty princesses

Rains made us forget who we were
And live our dream as we really should
And make our laughs and little dances
And cries that we'll remember ever

Every time rains came
Some were not to be seen again ...

In spite of how much our logical brain tries to convince us that our lives are just ordinary and governed by a standard set of laws, the truth is that life is both a magic and a miracle. And it needs to be treated with utmost respect and curiosity. You can never know where you'll end tomorrow, so keep your eyes open, smell the roses as often as you can and go for what your heart desire.

An Instruction Manual for all those who find themselves between a rock and a hard place:

A satisfied person is one who is prepared to die any second. Apply yourself to whatever you are doing. If something doesn't make you happy, move away.

Find people who love you more than you love them. So you'll have people around you who will rather let you do things your way than let you be sad.

Focus on what makes you happy rather than what makes you rich or successful before others. But always look out for a back up plan just to make sure you don't starve.

Find your talents and develop them.

Help people but don't sacrifice yourself for them. Because it may bring you sadness later.

Every time...

FOLLOW YOUR HEART
