More than a word, it speaks volumes 
Of the zillion memories made on 
Nights short and long 
It takes you back to the time 
When you slept caressing
The pillow you called your own.

More than a word, it speaks volumes 
Of the carefree times when you didn’t bother 
Thinking of the what ifs, why’s and how’s 
It makes you nostalgic of the times 
When you were still figuring 
How to figure the meandering 
Lanes of life.

More than a word, it speaks volumes 
Of how life smiled even when it was pouring 
Of how you wore it all because 
Nothing looked gloomy, not even the murkiest nights.

More than a word, it speaks volumes 
Of those tiny starts 
The leap of faith 
The endless promises 
The little moments 
The eternal memories 
The eyes with a hundred emotions 
The lessons you never knew you would have to ace 
The people you never knew you would have to leave 
The places you never thought would become surreal 
The moments you never knew would become rare 
The words you never thought that would get stuck 
The passion you could never imagine would fade 
The poetry you never thought would once turn to prose.



You Know.

You know how they say 
The night is for the quiet 
The stars speak of solitude 
The sky is the canvass 
Of thoughts that traverse the mind

You know how they say 
Fingers entwined never part 
Hearts conjoined always last 
Little smiles are meant to stay 
Dreamy eyes tell a tale

You know how they say 
A hundred words fall short 
When the mind is a Happy mess 
Everything is perfect yet
Everything was left when you went 
Locking the little doors where you grew 
Oh how I wish I could fly 
To the land where I learned to smile 
Amidst the arms that first held me 
Because two worlds, one soul 
Oh foul treacherous destiny 
You know how they say 
One heart, two halves
One character, two tales 
One story, two lives 
One person, a million miles


Messy Maze

The tangled maze of the tree
sometimes symbolize the mess inside
Aren’t we all a little twisted?
Aren’t we all looking to untie the #knots that complicate
Too soon too fast
Life rides at pace so Brisk
You wish you could pause and rewind
memories that have now become a lullaby



You know what they say 
Don’t let the thoughts scream 
Because it suffocates 
Slowly it will strangle 
The hold so tight 
You want to break free
But alas chains so terrible
They bound the free-spirited birdIMG_1235

If only I could fly 
And do all I desire 
The sullen heart too would smile 
The empty eyes would gleam 
With hopes of the paradise 
Where I had so often lived 
Why can’t I turn you back, Time? 
Why did you deceive? 
Lock me back in those lanes
Where I simply stayed 
Unaware of how precious 
Were those Tiny moments 
That has now passed me by

You know what they say 
People kill people 
Everything tumbles down 
The spiral gets messy 
The year is bidding a Bye 
Or is something else going away too? 
Bid adieu to another year 
Because it’s always yesterdays
That look lovelier than the tomorrows

One more time I will sail
In my yesteryears locked in memory lanes 
Let the good times wash over me 
Let the remembrance bring that same old smile
Which doesn’t worries of the ticking time 
Yes, let me be that kid again 
Who believed that Santa always came 
Because such is the pathos now 
Everything new is the same again


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
Music is indeed
The song of the soul


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




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

It’s been a while

Since I did a few things

But, this smile still belongs to


It’s been a while

Since I wrote YOU

But, the heart was


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

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

It will always be
