Nostalgia

Nostalgic endeavours struggling to keep pace with time,

penning from an unchartered memory connecting it with a rhyme,rose

I float away reminiscing those bygone days,

wording those dallying moments in every possible way.

Sitting in a corner ruminating with rue,

about those missed kisses hushed with a cue,

drowning in the sea of your love

embracing those memories blessed from above.

Two decades has the wheel of time turned,

facing those glaring eyes, endless relations spurned,

were we the ill-fated star-crossed lovers reincarnated

or was it the trick of cupid?

This fool in love knows not the god’s ways,

she just knows, that this birth is insufficient

to know you and love you.

Betrayal

betrayal

Laughter echoes over her mind,

Quietened by the aching heart to wind,

Time froze and disintegrated into tears,

Accompanied by profound disdainful fears.

Was he truthful to her innocent true love?

She pondered over her commitment to resolve,

Questions surged with answers to find,

But the aching heart crumpled her spirit to grind,

The long forgotten true love lay dying,

As she resolved to face the man, who was honestly lying,

Gathering strength from her burning tears of betrayal,

Evolved has she into a  woman of survival,

Fearless and undeterred, she ran towards the sun,

And her free spirit blissfully screamed, that she has just begun.

Life lessons

hope

Oh! ye mortals! look around you,

You think those tribulations pertains to you,

It’s the darkest clouds that rains,

It’s the molten iron that bends,

It’s the fallen seed that grows,

These are your lessons for evermore.

Life is a teacher and you, a mere student,

Learn, for opportunity knocks only once, so be prudent.

Those desolate days and exasperating times of existence,

Tests your patience, perseverance and persistence,

Don’t just stay afloat in the river of life,

swim to the shore with hope to live and jive,

The knowledge and wisdom that life imparts you to sow,

seldom comes decorated with chocolates and bow,

Through fire she moulds and strengthens your resistance,

Through failure she toughens your resilience,

And to test your faith, she darkens your days.

As she is the best teacher, learn those life lessons patiently,

pass those trials bravely, and exalted you shall be.

 

Water

water

The flowing verses in my mind,

gliding gloriously to bring gaiety to the grind,

surging in my heart to ebb out from thoughts,

meandering through the lanes of emotions,

splashing music of deep devotion,

a life serenading through the poetic streams,

where every end marks a new beginning of dreams.

Fire

 

fire

Farcical words to humour my seething anger,

a hug to subdue the burning ember of emotions,

a kiss to douse the searing flames scorching the heart within,

but the inferno in me refuses to die as it scintillates a spark of glow,

flaring the exasperation that devours my existence.

why? oh, why! such resentment that had inflamed my mind,

but the long-forgotten reason that irked the fire in me,

had scorched the world that I love.

Moment

Colourful thoughts merging with profound emotions,

Emotions, brewing love in the heart, stirring romantic notions,

notions, of willingness to traverse the globe for you,

you, for whom I would trot to destinations unknown too,

too sure, for even in darkness as a light I will embrace you,

you, for whom I will be shielding illusions and mirages, for my love is true,

true, when I’m with you, time frantically sweeps by,

bygone woes scintillate a shimmering ray of hope on our side,

side us with those long-forgotten wishes and unfulfilled desires,

desires, that lie in our hearts, as precious sapphires,

sapphires that seduce the time to halt, and savour the moment,

a moment of sobriety, bliss and for those that we missed, an atonement

atoned, as we conjoin to create pure love that paints our thoughts colourful.

A part of me…

mother

My heart filled with boundless joys and qualms,

When I first cradled you in my arms,

The cherubic face, fingers and tiny toes,

I had yearned for long to see those.

All those prayers invoking the heavenly abode,

Finally heard and on me, a blessing they bestowed.

To nurture, care and to love you as a mother

and embark upon a journey together.

But when you stand on the shores to face the world beyond,

with arduous obstacles and wavering mind to respond,

Remember my son, be strong, for you were born from a woman

resilient at the core, undeterred move on, for you have in you 

a part of me to summon.
