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.

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.

p.s- Long time no see; WordPress (Hypothetical)

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.

Retaliating Fear

I have this fear
This fear of falling

Once I dreamt
Of a bridge with a void
And I had to get across
utterly terrifying

But not as frightening
As falling for you

Fearing my mind
Scared by the sight
All I see is the midst of a fright night.

Darkness is sometimes strange
When the tendrils of its power
Marks your skin.

Adrenaline, Power, Sin.
All comes from within.
The stone cold mind of belief
with nothing to preach.

Fearing my heart
As it draws it’s last breath
Sending me off
Into an eternal sleep.

Fantasy Rendezvous #3

Dim lights, static rains
Parade of the fallen
Knocking our doorsInto the wilderness
lives the creature
Destined to achieve mortality

Pretending Errands
acting against the absolute
defining inferiority

Desire for the impossible
crave for perfection
resist from the ordinary

Tempting Flames
start with a clean slate
To martyr, the kingdom come.

Mesmerize the banished
tender love all the evil
with the vital force of
the Spirit and Soul.

Even the tiniest crack
light seeps in
creating an atmosphere
full of hope.

turning slowly with a misty gaze
a taste of autumn’s coming glory
gradual distance growing
yet still a sparkle in those eyes.

lapping in the breezes
and in the distant sky
we see, we smell, we taste,
every sense anticipates
as droplets in-formation wait
the rains are coming again.
