Friends for life !
Speak, we may not often
But you are etched in dusty corners of my fettered mind.
The dust only shrouds the brilliance of thine memories.
It can once again be polished to a shine.
Whenever we choose to.
For we are unicorns , seldom begotten
The mindless cups of teas
The midnight coffee breaks
The senseless blabbering
And endless bickering
The long walks and colorful umbrellas
The shady trees and food joints
We cherished and thrived
To make this day possible..!
A day to look back and feel ..
Never distressing but always delightful !
Floral and feminine sensual and sweet
Sultry and warm yet cool and icy
Confident and androgynous still appealing and sexy
Soft as silk and coarse as gravel
Like smoky woods and foggy morning
Like dew drops and dazzling sunlight
Spicy ..peppery ..bold ..vivid
Spring colours on an Autumn twilight
It's all about..
A woman who's about being herself
Who Settles down for nothing less
She shakes her own earth tests her own limits
Milking every ounce of her strength
Grasping all that comes her way
An enigma she is to herself as well the rest.
Show me your madness
Silence me with your lips
Grab me like I'm only yours
Hold me like I belong to you
Fit me snugly within you
Drown me in your passion
Let me feel you for all and more
For Time is never enough..
Make my senses surrender
Let me go pliant and fluid
Engulf me with your demands
Devour me with a raw need
Command me with your love
And fill me with lust
A primal urgency is what we shall have
Sixteen or sixty !
Sometimes I really can't find the right words to tell you
How crazy i am on you
Yes..I might hurt you.. but never intentionally
Coz I'm not your better half..but a mirror image..
Of yourself..and hence we are one and same !
Every single tear that you shed
Shows me that you need me
I'm your only obsession
And I know you will take me..
Giving is not a choice I have ..
Grabbing me is what you will do !
There's always this one place for us
Required at one point in life time
Where we can pour out ourselves
Despite the consequences
May it be some deepest fantasy
Which could be silly. .unattainable
Or some random thought
A bad mood day..cranky emotions
Or some day when we just want to talk talk and talk
Or keep on writing..
And this place is one sacred abode
A sanctuary for the broad and narrow
For the succinct and nebulous
Coz.. we have the varieties
For those who need, the immunity of anonymity
Like minded friends and people who listen. .!
#Lettrs is a blessing from above #
For those who need just this.. with love for words !
He #04# And it all comes to this
He wasn't the community material
No belief in cohesion, bonding
No interest in raising a family
He did not rely on trust
He couldn't thrive on compromise and adjustment
He was scared of failure
Of betraying a commitment
All these principles he believed as his
The ideas he had portrayed himself to be
The virtues he thought he was made of
Every single one of them shattered the moment he saw her
There..in the lawn near a white picket fence
Playing with her dog with a water hose in hand
In between tended grass and colourful pansies
A small neat house..just like her.. full of life
There he took his breath away..
With Sun glinting through her golden waves
He was someone with a lot of pretenses
To him Trust was flipside of betrayal
He had lost his compassion somewhere along the way
He no longer believed in intimacies of life
To him war and peace was another form of reality
Pain was yet another perception
Yet he seemed to be drawn to her
While he focussed on the harsher shades
She captured the lively glitz
While he was contented with solitude
She thrived on a party
Her slow moving relaxed life was a constant competition
To his fast paced power packed brain
While he spent physical force just by thinking,
She didn't break a sweat even after a hard day..
Nature's irony was what it was
Her easiness merged just like it was meant to be ...
# HE # 02 #
He knew so well
That worrying doesn't change things
Being aware of things changes things
Working on them changes them
Taking an action changes everything
But not watching them go by Or brooding over them
Living and thinking about themselves is a priority to many
Which some doesn't have a choice about otherwise
Intensive was his way..
Idealism was hers
Carefree ..crazy and relaxed
Sensual lazy charm and sexuality were hers..
With the graceful fluidity of wax
She melted against his sweltering heat
Absorbed them both into a whirlpool of emotions
With no oar to tide them to the shore
And with her neither worrying nor working changed the passion
Only acceptance did !
# HE # 01#
He was intrigued by darkness and romanced shadows
To the same extent as
He courted daylight and dated brightness
To him its always
Two sides to each coin
Two versions to each happening
Two sets to each word -synonyms and antonyms
Two halves to each full
To him Completion required polar opposites
And she was his.. exact mis-match !
Hence she fit perfectly and fulfilled him.
The lush silent valley stretching long
To the mountains far and beyond
Perfect round moon spilling magical light
Chiseled stars sparkling bright
Swishing leaves and trickling creek
Woods so dark and mysterious
Howling dogs and humming insects
Marking the night.. a time of reflection of self..
For this simple girl..
Who loved the ordinaries of life without an yearning for extra
Like tortoise made of carapace
Like geraniums and dandelions
Like ribbons and tulle
Like books and coffee
And she was waiting
For the first drop..the sunlight
That would warm the cold misty inners
As it does to the vast lofty vineyards
And brings it to life
So it would to her.. ! Her each dawn ..
Love might be thorny..prickly and a killer
But Loneliness is much worse when imposed..
Whilst being in love is a vitality,
Recluse is an unhappy addiction..Maybe unresponsible and carefree
Independent and level headed..But life is all about giving into impulses.
Making mistakes..And a sense of free spirit ain't it ?
Caring and getting hurt is a package..
But Framing relationships is the bigger picture..
Not letting anyone in doesn't mean staying stronger
But Holding up even after all our defenses are broken is !
When two people unknowingly, Obscurely,enigmatically, cryptically..
In love with each other..
Get separated for all the wrong reasons..
Unclarified and Unobvious reasons..
They are soon bound to realize
That being together was much better than staying alone
With memories of togetherness haunting them each moment..
Is not feeling the faint scent next to them a healer ?
Mysterious ! How fighthin with someone feels good than staying away..
There are times when even music wouldn't savage the beast
A long walk or curling up with a book would not help
Appreciating beauty around would not suffice
A deep laugh would not be enough
And even binging on food wouldn't soothe
Only moving forward saves the day
Not hiding in solitude or seeking a companion
But getting up and facing facts !
All that is diamond does not shine
And that is gold does not glitter
Not all mind that wanders is lost
Not all searches made are quests
All that's sick do not wither
All that's lonely need not a tether
Surface waters maketh not a ripple
Deep calm roots need no aegis
For it ain't matter if frost or draught
Or if it's sunshine or snow
For silver lining breaks through the dark
From smoke shall rise a fire
From ashes shall rise a Phoenix
From shadows shall rise a blaze
From darkness shall rise a brilliance
And the from slumber shall wake the queen!
World's toughest battles are mostly fought between oneself
Between the mind and matter
For what's to be done and what we feel as to be done
Aren't one and the same .
For what we need and what's offered to us
Cannot be one and the same as well
Sometimes I feel I'm not me
I'm just the me of others
Constant struggle between who I am
And who others want me to be
Another time , I feel I don't know me
Others as well don't understand me
Lonely and tired..as if on a quest
Trying to find answers
Other times I think I know what to do
And still feel I should be guided
Supported and steered
Love and be loved
And sometimes I feel I hate others to be in command of me
Having to listen to opinions and thoughts
Sometimes I feel others understand me better
And let them be in command
Yet another time I feel I'm brave
And I have goals and plans
And later feel I'm clueless
And need support and encouragement
One time I'm practical and c...
In the garb of friendships and fundamental rights, people take for granted one's patience and emotions!
Whilst at times you find friends admist diamond mines !!
Between you and me..
Stars..fate.. Destiny are all just words. .
Zodiac becomes a matter of mind..
And Love seeps through the cracks. . Ain't it ?
Pearly moon on a black canvas
Raptured woods and golden beams
Fluffy clouds on barren land
Black beads on ice crusted land
Dark and bright.. shadow and light
Colorful artists palette on a broad white canvas
Making the uncanny the most common
The impossible, probable
Exploring the darkest corners
Probing the deepest fantasies
Enough of reality and enough of everyday
Maketh the chimera all too plausible
A writer's bay.. and a utopian play
A love of words and a child of dreams.
Irritation without a reason ?
Too many opinions and advices?
Got everything, still it feels like nothing ?
One huge empty space inside of you ?
All is fine from outside.. still you need a reason to smile ?
Many a friends and well wishers. . Yet not a soul to understand you perfectly?
Well buddy, you are not alone.. Too many on the same boat..
Solution might be simple sometimes..
Like just listening to that one little tiny voice inside of you..
That mirror image . Which depicts you the way you are..
Shimmering from within..
A light house to your lost soul .. ☺
Love is all we need in life
With abundance of love comes acceptance
With acceptance comes contentment
Contentment gives us peace
And with peace joins beatitude !
Love is not necessarily between two souls
It's the sweetest emotion if all
Unbound by materialism or interim pleasures
When Shared and nurtured
Grows in leaps and bounds
Love for thyself
Gives inner most revelation and reality
An unbiased taker of dark and light
Acceptance of oneself and endless bliss
Changes, negativity, mistakes .. all seems nullified
Love of family showers flowers of spring
Therein lies harmony and Elysium
Joy and warmth .. cheer and blessedness
Like the dance of daisies
In the morning breeze
Does each ...
Ignore anything or anyone that steal your smile
Avoid them like plague
Those who give you that queasy feeling
Who disturb your peace
Who pull you out of your ethical zone
Who keep nagging you and your brains
They either are worth all of the pain
Or they aren't worth anything.
If someone's making you change..voluntarily.. so at ease
That even you don't realise it..
They make you happy. Smile and people around you like you this way,
They are those God sent angels ..
Maybe a flash. . Spark or maybe an everlasting gift..
But They are those worth every ounce of your sweat and tears. .
With them it will be BLISS ..PEACE AND HAPPINESS ..
Even pain will be so good.. that you will want it mo...
Rewind or pause is for those
Who want to relive the past
And who relish only the present
Who fear for future and don't trust themselves
When you belive you can create your happiness
There's isn't a need to pause or rewind
But just keep playing and creating better times ..
The truth is in moving on and reality is that..
Never fear or fret .. be hopeful..
Trust in yourself and play along !
A glimpse of growing up
That innocent childhood where
Sun and sand mattered the most
Clay and water created abodes
Cycles and races never ended
Cricket and stumps always thundered
Syringes squirted like water piston
And everyone had a gaming gun
Clawing and rolling were harmless and fun
Boomerang and spinning tops endlessly spun
Books and bags were priceless possession
And so were pencils and boxes
Colours were only jellies and jams
Candies and chocolates meant the world..
Summer was adored as it meant vacation
And it brought in mangoes and ice creams
So was Christmas and New year
As with it came Santa and reindeer
Where feathers were stored inside pages
And believed to bring luck
Good music , an enjoyable book and a well captured photograph are timeless
They stay beyond and far
Music captures and portrays people and emotions that 'll always linger
Words leave an impact that can never be taken back
Photographs leave memories that will always be remembered..
Raindrops fall like a silver chain
Bridging the sky and earth
A necklace of beads over the wires
Glistening on the rays of light
The divine humming. .A sound like nothing else
Damp moist mouldy earthy aromas all around
All shades of green so bright
A steady incessant fall. .
Quenching thethirst of parched rooftiles
Seeping through cracks of walls soothingly
Caressing the dry soil.. forming puddles along the way
For kids and pets to play !
Running alongside the roads..for paperboats to sail
Towards its destination.. fulfilling many dreams as it flows..
It is what it is..
A creativist's wildest dream
Every man's wishlist. .
HOPE IS ALL YOU HAVE
When all is lost and hope has fled
When fear is strong and strength is dead
When love and joy abandon you
When mental anguish grows in you
When the last of efforts fail to save
When your fate is ill, your mind enslaved
And when your head hangs low in misery
This is when you'll find the key
A single ember from deep within
Burns hotter and hotter, as flames begin
The fire of truth will light the way
And help you fight, this lonely day
The battle is long, the struggle is rough
Never regret not giving enough
For when we offer our very best,
Our very soul is put to the test
Stand tall and true and you'll prevail
Just hold on tight and never bail
You will survive if you ...
