A Patriot

Fighting for years, changed him so much. He saw only a  stranger when looked into the mirror. Darkness engulfed him, drowned in despair. Hope withered away, And so did his trust in destiny. Fate butchered his dreams, shattered his beliefs. Unknown to the people, endured a lot, for them. Slept in freezing snow, with the dark…

Memories

Walking down the memory lane, Filled with beauty and also pain. Trying to find a specific time, Was a lot harder than his last climb. And yet, he remembered almost everything, ‘Twas a gift, along with which, a curse did it bring. Forgetting his miseries was nigh impossible, Moving on, equally problematical. But on the…

Infinite Dream

Time, like a river, flowed non-stop, Caught in it’s current, I dreamt a dream undreamable. Floating in my own Consciousness, Couldn’t differentiate the reality From the illusion. I witnessed the birth of the first star In the first universe, And went through the transition  To stand at the edge Of the final multiverse. Unknown to…

A Kiss

Luscious lips, they were, Dragged him to her. No matter how much he tried, His ship he couldn’t anchor. Gazed into those starry eyes, Filled with complete mischief, He was ordered to stay put, By her, like she was his chief. Noticed by her, in an instant, His uncontrollable urge. She too realized the burst…

Heart X Mind

One moment, talked too much, Quiet for the rest of his time. Jumped in ecstasy, watching the clouds, Then, shut inside the house while it rained. Hungry like a beggar, raided his fridge, Didn’t feel like eating, after one bite. Watched a movie, bored he was, Left in between, ‘twas too noisy. Went to a…

Gone Moments

After every small fight, inevitable, ‘Twas tougher for her to let him go. Many apologies later, Somehow, she subdued his ego. Grew up together, side by side, Best friends they were, through thick and thin. She often called him, her yang, While to him, she was always his yin. Planned to travel the world together,…

A Force of Nature

Force of nature; that’s what she was, Always, and that’s what she’ll be forever. He tried to keep up, no matter how much, But couldn’t close the gap, whatsoever. As independent as the sun, she shone, By her radiance, he was smitten.  Not long before he was burnt, repeating The same mistake as Icarus had…

Lone Wolf

Wait patiently, he did; despite Patience not being his strongest suit. Tried his best to untangle the mystery, To find out, if there was any dispute. Confused he was, most of the time, Unable to ascertain whether he was fooled. Trust her, he did with all his life, But now, his doubtful mind overruled. His…

Happy New Year 2017

Another new year it is, but not like any before. Lots of promises, this one brings with it, Especially, the one for my life to benefit. I made peace with 2016 despite our differences. We shouted at each other; I, for its inadequacies, And It, for my unrealistic fantasies. After a heated argument on the…

Goodbye 2016

I remember not much, the start of this year. But I am sure, I’ll remember the end of it. With such a depressing year, I never expected, All I wanted to do, was quit. Many had it worse than me, Many had it better, I guess. But my thinking only caused discomfort And halted my progress….
