Buried in time

Many things unsaid,
Many things unfelt,
How could all these be stored here,
What if this heart stops?
Is it all lost with time?
All those things unsaid are never revealed or answered.
The tears behind those feelings are never heard.
All buried along with this heart laid to rest.

Letter from the sea

You have been gone for so long,
I waited for you on cold nights,
hankering to look into your eyes,
Like sparkling emeralds set into stars,
and with a lighting flame in my heart.

Years Passed by as I watched the breeze,
My heart was in entropy and I couldn't feel the ease,
Neither could I convey the emptiness inside.
Felt like a wound which wouldn't stop bleeding,
And lost all the hopes of you getting back.

There came a day which bought a smile on my lips,
By a letter which raised from the sea,
An ink stained paper with your words lost in time,
Saying I missed you and your love which has no words to explain,
Here I stand baffled now, "have I got back light in my darkened world".

Bleeding Wings

There you are surronding me as my wings
And making me an angel by providing wings.
But I was haunted and obsessed by the dreams,
Oh Lord, Dont make me bleed by tearing apart my wings,
And landing my future in ultimate pain,
By taking away my soul's light,
And I knew this day was not merely a chance.

But, Here I stand praying on my knees,
Desiring not to loose the heart beneath my wings.
But Is he still there, listening to my prayers,
And to show me some mercy atleast this time?
Suddenly everything has turned me upside down,
By making me fall into deep pit of darkness,
Which would never allow me to see the light of day again.


I was so happy,
Every time you smiled at me,
With a smile that melted away everything.

Hence I always wanted to be your sky,
And envelope your sadness.
Whenever you looked up, you would know you are not alone.
Even if you are far away,
You know you have a place to come back.

But off late the space between us has become too big.
Waiting for your honest reply,
Has made me lonely.
Although today is hard to bear,
Even when yesterdays scars remain,
I will work out with a heart that wants to trust.
Coz I can’t be born again.
But I can change as I go on.
Let’s stay together,

Secret land of tears

I see tears trying to cross your lovely cheeks,
They are rain upon the blinding dust of earth,
They glow like a pearl trying to water your soul,
If tried to hold, burns with flavors of emotions.

Here I stand waiting for you, to embrace you in my arms,
Allowing your tears to drop on my shoulders,
To kiss away your hurt, to remove your fear,
To show you that this world isn't so cruel after all,
To accompany you in a secret place, the land of tears,
And to hold you close - and never let go...never...let...go...

Hallucination - 2

I caught a glimpse of her; just in the moment she was trying to settle herself. She was a cute little girl who was travelling along with me to a place where I was heading for a dream. We got acquainted of each other. We had a lovely talk over stuff and everything seemed so uptight. We together enjoyed the whisperings of the ocean, the clickety-clack of the rails, the hum of the passing country side, the ringing flash of crossing lights and studying the names of the stations.
Drowsing, heads lolling, voices amplified and faded in the clickety – clack of the rails as darkness coated the windows. We also thought of having a slumber. Glassed with cold sleep and dazzled by the moon, out of the confused hammering dark of the train, I looked and saw under the moon’s cold sheet and noticed dark small trees that burn suddenly into flowers more lovely than the white moon. Everything looked so tranquil. Then we were stopped at a station for some time. I got down the train to enjoy my feet in the silent lighted yet deserted station. I had no words to describe the place, the way it looked and the way I felt.
And soon, so soon I noticed someone getting down the train. It was none other than that small girl. I called her name but no response. Listen, Can you hear me Laura? I screeched. Again there was no reciprocation. As I continued to call, she continued to walk along the more unlighted area. I followed her silently and crossed on to the other platform, where there was another train ready to depart.
As I stood there I held my breath, fearfully glancing up at her. My feet became numb, my heart started pounding.  I stood fearful, confused, drowned, fallen, startled, furious, horror-stricken and many more. All the emotions urged to take a shape. I had so many questions unanswered, many broken. I felt all the longings turning away into silent stillness.
I could sense in her the terror of the shivery sea. Her eyes were fraught with full of resentment and bitter desires. I could hear the wild cries and a lot more horrid voices. It was so dark in the night where I could hear some footsteps too. She was surrounded by a very different aura which took my breath away.  The winds blew fiercely and then it blew slowly.  The trees bent uneasy, leaning to and fro. I was lost within strange fear.
This time again, I stood there glancing at her while she was settling down on one of the huge wheels of the ready to move train. And the train speeds on and the darkness grew and screams rented the foetid air. But she was not affected by its action or the wheels rotation. No matter how fast the wheel rotated, she was on top of the wheel unaffected. On the spur of the moment she gazed into my eyes and smiled. Her smile was sinister. I was in pain and grief and felt my eyes tortured.  The train left and there I stood alone excruciated in the midst of the shuddery night.
I woke up from my dream with great anguish, perspiring. I was scared to death at this little fright, but I had to sleep on through the night, until I could see the sun on its peak.

First Kiss

In the midst of our talk,
You seemed to glow, like heaven-sent,
You seemed so close that,
I felt the warmth, that your heart lent.
You smiled and winked, I took a breath.
I heard your heart, Beat in your chest.
Short I was in your warm embrace,
I felt a touch so soft and tender.
You leaned over and kissed me,
With a passion flowing free.
I leaned towards you,and closed my eyes.
I felt my knees go weak.
It made me feel , so reassured.
You left me wanting more,
And my soul free of pain .
