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.
“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”

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!
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.

“Shoot or he shoots you!” yelled the betrayer
Holding a gun to her lover’s head.
Fear of loosing sent shivers down her spine
She had to shoot her Love of life dead.
She looked in front, and there he stood
Smiling at their fate in deep contemplation
To kill that person, oh how she could!
Fond memories only aroused intense provocation.
She looked down the cliff and saw her people
An empire cursed to live on the air she exhaled
To their church, she was the steeple
“Oh I can’t be dead!” she helplessly bewailed.
Looked up and saw the angel smiling
Eyes twinkling as if showering blessings.
“What should I do!” Cried the queen
Hot tears running down her cheeks, cold from wind
“You know what to do” said the voice serene
Destiny had got her priorities twinned.
“Make it fast” shouted the villian again
She could but see through his nasty game.
Love’s death through her, would give him eternal peace,
While her death would lead the empire to cease.
Down the horizon the sun bid farewell
Love had to kill her before she would
Turn into a monster and roam the hell.
But kill his lady love? Oh how he could!
“Please kill me!” shouted Love
“For your people, for the love of God!”
“Do it…” said the Angel above
“Your empire would be a peace abode”
“Bang!” her gun shot Love down
“Glory!!” down the people hailed
Love’s blood stained her royal gown
“Agonies apart, her duty prevailed”.
Her people kept celebrating her victory
While her tears dried and heart crashed
For them she was a Queen of eternity
Yet inside she had herself killed!
A lonely body carrying a heart
Crippled from past ventures
Afraid of attachments and adventures
Scared to fall in love again…
Can she risk it to another pair of hands
So weak, so bleak and so foolhardy
To carry her heart, broken by millions?
Wary of the world again…
Despite the pains and promises to herself
Her meek heart won over her mind
And managed to convince her let it go
To give it another chance again…
Her heart knows the grief it has to bear
But she had promised not to shed a tear
Now already sees an inferno ahead
Still decides to go with the flow again…
With every cut, deeper will be the scar
But she no cares anymore
For “wise” is she now to know the fact
That sharper the cuts,
Brighter does a diamond shine…
Then what will she be when it all ends?
Or will it really ever end?
Will she be the brightest of all?
So bright, that it’ll blind others like her
And make them follow the path as hers?
A year ago, I had published this poem, welcoming people-friends, family, strangers!..to my world…life, a bit closer to myself…to know myself better, to know them better and for them to know me better as well; a small step towards bringing smile to a person’s face or to make him/her understand the colorfulness (dark and bright colors of life) and henceforth its beauty.
Life, this world and everything here are beautiful… They can be and should be appreciated whatsoever when seen through eyes of Romance… POETRY.
Today I reblog this poem as, my pride, A Piscean’s Pride completes one year 🙂
Welcome to my wolrd!
