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!

Fool

I thought I knew you.

I thought I knew myself.

I had everything planned to the core.

But I didn’t know

That my self-righteousness would play

Devil’s Advocate

With my heart!

I did not … I could not!

And just when I was too sure,

Too sanctimonious,

Like an over smart halfwit

The harsh reality cut open

My shallow vanity as I slumped

On my face, the bitter truth

Barging in through the weakened doors

Of mine, crashing like tsunami waves

As you left with your ego and my sanity

Without a word,

Without an emotional manifestation!

How could you do that?

How could I not see that coming?

And I thought I knew you …

I thought I knew myself!

Scribbles of a Teenage Heart … The Wish!

I wonder

What would have happened:-

If we got a pound of wisdom

Delivered to our doorstep

Every single day,

That would be a part of

The daily meal

We would have had …

Without spectacle

Without a bother

And pour it into us

Just like smashed potatoes …

Would all of us be wise today?

 

I wonder

What would have happened:-

If humanity was a river

Flowing across the lane

With a perpetual flow:-

One dip everyday

In the waters

Anytime by

Brothers from all religion,

Cast or creed,

Color or orientation,

Would all of us be human today?

 

Baseless as it may sound,

Insignificant and frivolous,

I know that all of them

Are unbelievably preposterous,

But in this world lacking

Wisdom and humanity,

With an overdose of hate and pain

In times of such of calamity

A wish sprouts out

From the depths of my heart:-

Let these dreams come true

Before the goodness parts

From all of us alive

Even if they’re just for a day

Would the world be a better place then?

Dear God, what do you say?

Antidote!

Lost in my melancholy world

I write again with a poignant endeavor…

These haphazard words of rhythm

Are but weird enticing metaphors

Portraying the raging pandemonium

Inside my mind, inside my heart:-

Engulfing with competence my sanity

As a monument of ambiguity I stand to part

My ephemeral happiness

With its audacious momentary glory,

I cogitate its reality and the poet in me

Weaves the words into a story,

Gibberish to the world approprié!

A hopeless rant to all those

Super perfect human beings

Renouncing the outburst I chose!

Surprised, I suddenly realize:-

The key to my deliverance lies here!

Pouring out my emotions through scribbles

As the crisis in my head nears,

For a final showdown in the world of bedlam:-

I write to save myself, the only hope

In this fettering world of negativity;

The nectar that’s keeping me alive, my precious, my antidote!

Oh Childhood!

That unabashed exuberance!

The eloquent zest that blossomed out of my soul:-

Bathed in the ecstasy unknown,

The frolicking fun-loving gambol!

Yes it was me, oh yes! Oh yes!

Years and years ago

The pure and divine childhood,

The innocence in eternity stowed …

Even a bit of it left no more!

 

Dozing off to the favorite lullaby-

Oh it’s a vague memory echoing inside!

The crayons and the coloring books are

Somewhere in the attic, dust-eaten bonafide

Authenticating my years of enfance!

Chasing butterflies in the garden

Running around without an iota of tension

That knocks around every now and then

As I look back to the days of innocence!

 

Memories of my childhood

You’re the ode to my deliverance!

As age eats away my youth,

The reminiscences indulge in sweet offence:-

Happiness and sadness come conjoined,

I reflect, I smile and I cry in solitude!

No more neighborhoods to intrude:-

No more childlike divinity to exude:-

As I stand neck-deep into adulthood!
