No Name

You were like

Chinese porcelain

Those eyes of blue heaven

You were sanctity

 

I had you

Wrapped around my soul

I loved you

I loved you too much

 

Did I die

When you ripped me apart?

Was I mawkishly sentimental

Or was I numbed to the core

 

And there I was

Like a dog chasing cars!

Stripped off my vanity

Stripped off my sanity

Memories of Farewell Songs

Memories of farewell songs

Pour down like gentle rain.

Wash off our sins and wrongs

And make us what we were again!

**

Be a bit more than frivolous nostalgia

Stuck in this vicissitude of life: –

We don’t have our visions clear

Gasping for breath in this hopeless strife!

**

Those days when we sang with no fear,

The iron resolves we wore as crowns-

Now like fallen kings in disarray so sheer,

We’re going down in leaps and bounds !

**

In the sea of broken glass

We stand bloodied to the core.

Doomed in the abyss of hell,

We’re so very far from shore.

**

And tears trickle down our eyes

As the songs hit our senses

The ones we sang while we bid goodbye

Hoping to make it big immense!

**

In the race to the pinnacle

We so lost our way!

What we set out to achieve

Never saw the light of the day!

**

And as we walk down the memory lane

We brush the dust from our suits so grey …

Still we raise a toast to our glory days again,

We live to fight another day!

The Stride ……..

The waves whispered to me

As I gazed at the open sea;

Water swept over my feet

And my heart skipped a beat

As with a pained heart and a deep sigh

I revisited my whole life and bid goodbye

Once and for all to all of them

Whom I’ve tried to love but in vain!

I let my mind go astray!

The whole world was grey!

I wanted to get lost.

Let everything go for a toss.

The wind caressed my body

With lover’s bliss and rhapsody!

The distant ripples were just

Eloquent hand gestures that

Called me out and I took my step:-

The new story was taking shape!

As the world of the unknown beckoned

My wretched soul, tortured and troubled,

The cold water seeped chills in my bones

But unabashed I carried on and on.

I could hear a mystifying symphony

Echoing in my head in harmony,

So the waves whispered to me again,

This time it took away the fear and the pain,

I closed my eyes and saw the light

It was my rejuvenation sprouting out from my plight!

Let the wounds heal, let the twinge ease:-

I am the rider to eternal peace!

And then the moment arrived,

The water around me jived

To cover me up in its own merry way:-

As I surrendered myself in gay,

The world moved on, it was just another day,

Lost in the oblivion I faded away!
