French Delights.

Whispering words
The eyes tell the story
Amidst too many words
Tied around the silent glances
Hidden amidst the smiles
Lives and breathes a story
All that happens
All that will
Shall together tie
The chapters abound
French delights
Drunk without wine
Promises till end of time
Two chapters blend
A story is made
The book is written
The characters play
The song they shall say
Shall set the heart ablaze
Because
Sometimes
Music is indeed
The song of the soul

Rains.

The falling drops
Are here again
The sky is painted in lilac
The heart draped in red
The shining stars seem
Lost in singing the dreamy lullaby
Inching closer together
Never to drift apart
Two banks of a river
Crisscrossing the stones
The collision is beautiful
The union shall amaze
Even the stars will say
I wish I lived this story too!
Not every plan permits
Not every smile has a reason
Not every poem speaks
Not every line rhymes
Yet, all falls in place
When the tiny fingers entwine
Perfectly they fit
Perfectly they remain
The rain pours again
French delights
Memories infinite
Here to stay
Forever the same
One step more
A lot awaits as
The rain reigns again

Beginnings.

Let us go
A little somewhere
Between the stars
Amidst the twinkling dots
Sandwiched between the floating clouds
Draped in memories tonight
Let us not blink
Just stay
Stargazers and wanderers
Dreamers and lunatics
Entwined amidst fingers five
The lashes too begin to smile
Desserts and French delights
A moment frozen in time
Reflected from the sky divine
Places different, sharing the sky
The moon whispers our lullaby
A little somewhere
Between the stars
Underneath the lines
Our story resides
Beautiful beginnings
Begin to rhyme

Live, Love, Leave.

You know,

Nothing in life

Comes for granted.

One moment

We are here

Amidst love

With your loved ones

Thinking of your lover

Giggling with people

And 

One snap

And everything ends.

Fragile?

Of course.

Unpredictable?

Oh Yeah!

Who has seen tomorrow?

The sun when it sets

Doesn’t knows if it will meet

The morning rays again 

People we hug

Might just become

Little figments of 

Big memories

Because

Sometimes, it gets one moment too many.

Sometimes, the end sneaks right under your nose

You never know which page is the last

If this is it,

Cherish the folded pages

Trace your fingers

On pages you highlighted

The memories your heart seals

Kiss the line

Where you wrote your own story

Feel the emotions

Where you first felt beautiful

In the end,

We never know

When one today

Never brings another tomorrow.

You know,

Nothing in life

Comes for granted.

You know,

Nothing in life

Comes for granted.

You know,

Nothing in life

Comes for granted.

LIVE.

LOVE.

LEAVE.

YOU.

It’s been a while

Since I walked

Along the lanes of poetry

It’s been a while

Since I sat to pen

The feelings inside

But, even though

It’s been a while

The poetry still wears the same name
YOU.

It’s been a while

Since I did a few things

But, this smile still belongs to

YOU.

It’s been a while

Since I wrote YOU

But, the heart was

ALWAYS

Draped in shades of your love

It’s been a while

Since I walked through my garden

But, it is still a wild rose
That blooms
Because

First Springs don’t fade

Like a little infinity

They spread wherever they go

It’s been a while
Since together has been

I and YOU

But,
It will always be

YOU.

change

Half Story.

A half story will someday

Finish

Between pages of the unread diary

Between the unwritten words of a love poem

Between the hidden glances of almost lovers

Between the teary eyes of the false smile

Between the giggling conversation of a new flame

Between two ‘Almosts’ touching ‘Always’

A half story will someday

Finish 

Between I and You 

And become the Us

‘We’ will think of

33 years from now.

A half story will someday

Finish

Between a poem that ends

With a wish.

WISH.

 

Because every Valentine’s day, you must fall in love with Love.

The HOME.

Have you ever looked for a home?

And found yourself wondering

How would  the walls look like?

Would you paint the ceiling red

Or leave it white like the rest?

Will there be one extra window

To clear your mind

On stormy nights

Will you have tall walls

To help you when

claustrophobia hits you hard

Have you ever looked for a home

And found yourself wondering

If you will ever find one?

I’ve done all this and more

spent too many nights

Trying to find

That one home

Where I could be

Who I am and break free

Of every insecurity

Yet, it took me a long time

To know

Lover alone can make a home

No fancy walls,

No specific color

The heart that calls your name

Is the home you will crave to stay!
