A Lone Loon Prattles …..

I am walking down the road.

It’s just another day.

There’s a zephyr blowing.

I am so lost in the fray

With my mind that has gone astray!

 

Adversities have taken their toll

On my life as there have been

So many I have lost the count.

Oh! I would have loved to win:-

The battles lost, so brutal, so devastating!

 

I was looking here and there

Searching for that very place

Where amidst every other pain

I had found solace.

But now I somehow fail to trace.

 

They say go on and keep trying.

But happiness passes in a wink of an eye!

How much ever I hold back,

How much ever I try,

It eludes me and bids me good bye!

 

I see the same angel in my dream.

She promises to teach me first

That magic trick which would erase

Memories of my wretched past-

I wake up to realize that the dream didn’t last!

 

I look at my shadow, obeying my every move.

Realize that the light of life hasn’t fainted yet.

I have to pick myself up.

All that I deserve I have to get.

Enough of the lonely tears that I’ve shed!

 

If only I could get blessed,

With friendship and love around;

With a tiny help I can breathe,

The sweet smell of joy profound;

Oh How I wish to turn things around!

 

Knocked on the doors to no avail;

Tried hard to gel in;

I want you but oh you don’t?

It’s the same story all over again!

I did try so hard, but in vain!

 

And somewhere along the lane

Again I found myself all alone.

Bewildered by the fake smiles around-

Lost amidst the ocean of unknown!

Ah! The silent walk back to oblivion!

 

Drenched of all the emotions,

The black-hole heart of mine;

Eat drink work and sleep.

A meticulous routine one of a kind;

A senseless body trudges with a helpless mind!

 

I am still walking down the road.

It’s just another day.

There’s a zephyr blowing.

I am so lost in the fray

With my mind that has gone astray!

The Brooding Magpie …

Money can’t really buy         Joy and happiness as I

Stand amid the riches galore         With your face in my eyes …

And I don’t know why         Your thoughts make me cry,

I feel helpless but         To smile I indeed try …

 

Ignore me and no! I’m not high!

I am just a brooding old magpie!

I am just a griever with hapless silent sighs!

 

I failed to realize         You were the one in disguise,

In my pursuit to fill my purse       I let you go; I am the darned unwise!

And no words can ever suffice       As every moment a part of me dies;

The loss that I incurred …         I did pay the heavy price …

 

Ignore me, oh! you want to know why?

I am just a brooding old magpie!

I am just a griever with hapless silent sighs!
