I’m the rain you rule


I can be a drizzle of solace
Soothing every pore on your skin
Healing wounds and easing stress
Relieving pain of sufferings akin.
I can be a refreshing rain
Washing all your deadly deeds
Baptising you of your sins
Promising and planting sanguine seeds.
Or I can be a thunderstorm
Destroying beings with my rage
Causing the darkest nights to cry
A tigress that you will not dare to cage.
I can be what you want me to be
I will be whenever you want me to be.
I am water and you are earth
So I’ll flow as you guide me.
I adjust my ways through the narrows
Through the difficult tunnel you be
While sometimes you be as vast as the ocean
An ocean that I never cease to fill up
And sometimes you make me fall like a stream
I am the rain that you rule
I am your loyal and devoted slave
But one fateful day I will emerge,
Emerge from the nothingness
From what you couldn’t see…
That day I will not stop, I will not melt
I will not be a drizzle or rain
Only rip you off like a stream does to a terrain
I will only be a fatal thunderstorm
Burning you with the lightning I cause
Neither earth nor fire can stop me then
My devil will visit you without an omen
That day I will not flinch at your rosy words
That day I will not be the rain you rule…



I’m nothing


That moment when I realised
What it took for you to trust me
What you left behind to love me
What it meant to be told the things I couldn’t see,
I fell in love like never before…

I’m sure this is the luckiest I could be
Because I’m loved by a person
Stronger than anyone can ever be
I’m falling for you more than I thought I will
With each day giving me reasons in goodwill.

You told me to seek trust from my ownself
Rather than asking for you to trust me
But dear don’t you know?
I’m much more dubious than I show…
So please bless me for I’m a bungler
I’m inexperienced and unwise
I’m everything that I despise.

But I can’t loose you to my stupid mistakes.
I can’t let this love go in vain…
I won’t let you down again.
Tonight as I open my heart to love
I take a vow under the moon as I walk
And since my pen does the talk,
I write in these words to you…

In the deep waters of commitment that I dive,
I promise I’ll strive to save and survive.
I promise I’ll fight back the insecurities that I face
I promise I’ll be someone whom no one can replace.

Please stay more

Let me listen to a few more of your untuned songs
Songs so offbeat, so much out of tune
Yet words i can trust and relate in your voice.
Tell me more about the dreams and ambitions
That you carry in this beautiful heart of yours.
And talk about books, music, love and life!
Let a few more days be gone and Watch with me the spring flowers bloom
Let a few more nights fall into the madness of our love
As we lay under the stars and the moon…
Let my mind take in the moments spent with you, slowly,
And store them safe in its deepest corners…
Let my heart slow down and calm itself before you go away.
Let me embrace you till I breath again into a new life
Let me leave memories as intense as you left me with
Memories that left me craving for more.


The world saw it better

***for every person who pushed her limits to love someone who never deserved her love***


I realise now that
The world knew it better
When it told me
Not to fall in love with you.
But may be what it didn’t know
Was that
I had already fallen for you…

May be,
The world saw it better
How you used to
Leave me crying every night
And out, in the biting cold
Stretching me in and out
As if from a black hole…

The world heard it better
The curses and sarcasms that
You used to shoot at me
My cries and pleadings
Which never sufficed to
Melt your tough heart
But what it didn’t hear were
My silent cries
In dark rooms of my heart;
The louder wailings
In deepest corners of my mind.

The world understood it better
The pain I used to be in
After each one of your beatings.
How the sadist part of you
Used to love whipping and ripping.
But what it never understood was
My mental pain was much greater.
And why and how I used to bear it all
All in the name of love.

The world saw it better
Yes, it surely did
The wounds that you left me
After each fight we had.
But what it didn’t see was
The greater war I used to fight
Everyday inside my heart.
No, it wasn’t the world that saw it better
It was me who was blind…

Your light


“You have something I get attracted to.
I can see a light in you!
A light so magical, so full of life
Fills me with joy and pleasure…
Pleasure of an essence, joy of a narcotic!”

“Stay away from me!
For that blazing thing is an Inferno you see.
It burns inside me day and night
Blinding naive eyes like yours”

“I want to be burnt in that Inferno
For what you are is what I want to know
It’s worth knowing
Why and how that Inferno exists in you;
Your fire is pure and pious
I want to stay in the light you contain
For I know I’ll find my nirvana there
As does a moth
Circling around the light it wants
For its life
Knowing it’ll be burnt one day!”

“My dear, you seek a dangerous light
Don’t be a moth, don’t you fight
For something so dicey
Or you will burn yourself to death
Chasing the light that can never be yours
Rather be a firefly,
To twinkle like stars on wet grasses
To decorate the garden of a monsoon wedding…
To be the sparkles of joy for a mid night lullaby
To be light of wisdom for an angelic being
Or to illuminate the path of lost travellers…
Do not seek a light because it’ll only hurt
Be the light that you seek”

Stay this way

Not a long time it has been
That I woke up to your face
For the first time.
When I was but a teen.

Inside me was a soul so new,
Not new from birth but from rebirth,
Baptised by the morning dew
So as to know it’s worldly worth!

I looked outside, at the lush lawn
Instead saw myself on the window
Sky looked different that dawn
And so did I in a beautiful way…

You started playing and there i went
Dancing all over my room,
Enthralled by, the notes it blent.
The melody being my magic broom.

This is the way it has been
Since our very first love day
Yet ennui has no place to live.
Please be here,
Please stay this way!


Will you be there?

bridesmaids and bride prepare for the wedding in the color green

I want to know if some day,
I lay on my death bed
Saying goodbye to the world;
Saying hello to a peaceful dread,
How many pairs of eyes will cry,
Shed tears of honest emotions.
How many mouths will go dry
Out of words to speak words of wisdom.

I want to know if some day,
I’m accused of a wrong deed
How many people will trust my instinct,
And how many will sow dubiety’s seed.
How many pairs of hands will rise
In support of an innocent me
And how many will rise their fingers
As my flaws would be only thing they see.

I want to know if some day,
I be crippled to stand, see or think
How many pairs of legs will support
In the day time until night fall’s brink
How many minds will show me light
Through my mental and physical darkness
How many bodies will give me the strength
The energy and motivation that I can harness.
