Homecoming

give me a hug
for the road ahead
give me a smile
so I remember again
show me the way
down the winding road
towards home

Which I haven’t seen
In so many years
just the thought
brings up my tears
not that they
are worth anything
and there’s not
much to bring back
the empty room
screams for your absence
and the labyrinths
whispers in my ears
can’t help it but i wonder
if you’re okay out there

wherever there is
hope you know I care
and that I forgive you
for all the bad times
’cause there were good times
to make up for mine
and all the mistakes
that swirled around us
held no bearing
didn’t make us fuss
but I miss you
in this cold empty place
doesn’t feel like home
there’s no trace of you.

give me a hug
for the road ahead
give me a smile
so I remember again
show me the way
down the winding road
towards home…

Transcendent Bouquet

Sweet memories of you still reside
when it reflects, I cannot hide
a sense of the vibe; ahead of pride
And a flavor of those nostalgias abide.Of a time in my life, years transferred
Taking a turn of good times retrieved
Relieving gift of memories redeemed
an innocence of worship, blossomed.

Glooming my heart out for your sake
Only if you were real & not a fake
I’d have put everything on stake
For that mere resemblance & intake.

Birds Chirping around the corner
Comes inside my room with a screamer
Nothing did I knew any better
Woke up from my dream wearing your sweater.

Bewildered Trooper

Emotions hit me like a ton of waves
Wanting them to go away, never come back again
I guess I’m saving them for a rainy day
I don’t want to revisit the pain
Tears falling, blood stains
Broken hearts and broken plates
Smashed up but it was good the love we made.

Laws of physics states that
all bonds will eventually be broken
Worn down, ripped apart
Converted to something new
But if you’re determined
Maybe you’ll be able to salvage what’s left
You didn’t hold on tight enough
To what was left of us
And yet you’re so surprised
That I, too, faded into the gentle folds
Of your memories
Changed.

I Don’t Need Your Apathy
If you lost your feelings to the world’s ways
Then surely I don’t look for your sympathy
But there are few who understand
I do look for their empathy
And their kind words of encouragement.

You can be a good person
with a kind heart and still, say no.

Relish Wraith

I’m getting tired of reality
I know I’m not the only one
But why does it have to be all stuck inside
And feel so empty at the same time.

Can’t scream out the desolation
And feed it with anything either
It’s because it takes all the space inside
Like a gallon of pain inside my heartbeat.

I wish it didn’t have to hurt so much
So I could run away
But the pain keeps my mind focusing
On my obvious basic needs
Talking being the first one.

I’m so cold outside, I’m shivering inside and
All I want is to coil up with someone so deep
And Hearing the mystics of her whole life.

Hiding the character
So I can be ugly when I cry
or too loud when I scream
And I may never feel alone.
Because,
I am from the inside world
Where feelings are free
Where lies don’t exist
The inside world
Where I belong.

Escapade!

Once a fairy poked my little nose
And gave me the sense of adventure

An adventure,
Where I want to see something I’ve never seen before
and indulge into the beauty of the wilderness
I’ll go alone
into the deep snowy mountains
build a little wooden cabin
I’ll sit in my pajamas
near the fireplace & a big bookshelf
holding a warm cup of coffee.

To love the adventurers
Welcoming the misty night
Many curves to explore
Trace the unknown haven
Clues spelled out with soft sighs

Where the Soul’s feel the warmth to the core
With an inseparable grasp
Sending shivers down every nerve
Finally to taste the adventures
Exploiting the alluring terrains

Reach the peak of serenity
Now I lay exhausted
After a satisfying adventure
A Painstaking Task
Drinking the Love
Of poetry’s full Goblet.

Self expression conflicts
With the self-doubt inside
Of all the beings in the world
Singularity resides in my mind

An abundance of thoughts
Whenever shall I begin…

Moment of Bliss

Isn’t it ironic that happiness is
all we ask for?
We spend our lifetime
looking for it.

yet the definition of happiness
remains undisclosed.

I thought I should write a happy poem
Try to route some positivity in my words
Hopefully it gets through my thoughts
& Finally hits my heart.

But,
I got stuck.
Again.

When you stop and look around
life seems pretty amazing
Saying yes to Happiness means
cherishing those little moments of joy
saying no the negativity
& people who stress you out.

Maybe I found a cure for the happiness
Then, let’s start from some love
Add wholesome masochism
A few memories
And finally a lot of sincerity.

p.s- I missed this; blogging.

Dawn of Awakening

At the bay of the sea
I saw a Pearl inside the cluster
Free yet so secured

Waving my bare hands
inside the water full of ripples
I was living the moment of
utter quiescence.

Then,

I wondered,

It’s been months since I even tried to write up an actual blog about something. Something so vulnerable that is in my mind from quite a time now.
I’ve had some rant left in me about current affairs and stuff that even resembles hope for our future. All that constant constipated stuff that covers up that whole breaking news hour.

Sometimes, I wonder, why they chose us. Us over any other species. A species which is been gifted with such Intellect. A species which can communicate and Understand.
We’re so close to achieving greatness yet so far. We all have big dreams for ourselves. We all, won’t let a single eye bat our own; Our family. Have we finally reached the point where
Only the blood-related is considered as Family. Is there any trace of Humanity left on this Planet.

Sometimes, I wish i could track back our footprints and start from the scratch. But maybe i was too late. Introduced too late, for such delicate situation.
I’m no saint. I’m inseparable. Exposed at times where i don’t need to be. Perhaps the time is what, I don’t have or is it the Patience? Which I never cared to keep.
So what went wrong? It’s been approximately 14 billion years since the Big Bang. Even After accomplishing things and technology that were never predicted, We stand aside from the sole intention we were meant to live for. Is it something that has to do with our insecurities? Is it the influence of the greed to get more; expect more? Are we really doing this?

Sometimes, I get panicked. Not because I’m supposed to be but maybe, i was meant to be. I panic when the situation is out of my bounds. I fear when the wrongdoing has all the
stronghold. I dismay when something happens even when i never intended for it. Similarly, this time, we’re living in, is no illusion of terror, It actually is the apocalypse
which we never hoped to see. And maybe, we’re too late to stop it. Maybe, we’re the only reason it occurred in the first place. Maybe, we were too busy running after the things which can be priced. Concentrated on filling our lust and longing, while our only hope; our only planet, Panicked.

Sometimes, I hope for a change. Not a change that could revolutionalize the world. Not a change that would jeopardize our position either but a change in the thought process. Change in the opinion of every individual on a scale where there is some hope left for Unity. Where we all could deal with our deeds. Kneel down to our Sins. Where at least there’s some pitch left for our future to cope up. Where we could actually build something so concrete that it can be shattered by nothing.

I never asked to be special. I never asked for anything fancy. I never asked for this discreet pain. I never asked for this broken Peace. I never asked for the silent Wars and Politics.
I never asked for a day where i wake up in the morning, and everything is either dead or lost. I never hoped to see that day. And maybe, i shall never be.
The only thing i ever asked for is the Survival of the innocent. Endurance for Humanity.
To the wrongs that need resistance, To the right that needs assistance, To the future in the distance, Give yourselves. – ( By CCC)
