Faded

Standard

This heart is an enclosure

A cage forged of yesterday

The toil survived of today

A breath tinned for tomorrow

And an abandoned corner of sorrow

Of a piece given and lost

 

This entity is an audience

Walks to and fro

Past the echoes of the past

Unheard of deceptive tragedy

Befell on it deaf and dumb

And now a blindfold cast

Of the plays it play

Bland and oblivious

Of the corner

That darts tenebrous demeanor

Across the evocative loud room

Forbidden to radiate through

Must not touch the healing surface

 

Yet it stays, formidable to falter

Screams of the shattered

Ignored or perhaps adapted

But never forgotten!

 

Did you just say you moved on?

 

Wonder again

The breaths you take

In faraway land

In wait of love to hit again

And you emanate into the same air

Which they inhale

Ruthlessly

 

Tide of time fails to wash away the imprints they left

But may fade

Petals of my memory of you

Standard

Beautiful vermilion shades

Flowers of the verdant times

Plucked before it withers away

Into the air, into the dirt

Tramped and crushed,

A yellow pestilence

And a white shroud

That weeps

With a sore pair of eyes

 

O precious ones, once in a lifetime

Bloom in my hands

Rest in my laps

O dear! an olfactory pleasure

And my sense deluded

The ephemeral existence,

Delectation I seek

With a smile that adorns my lips

-Yes, I am loved

 

Those flowers, bearers of a heart

Reminder of a lover to his beloved

Taint in its place

It rots in moonlight daze

For the branch that sustains

A life so hopeful of subsistence

Lost in the flood of fate

 

yet,

 

Memories of him who is gone

Though entwined with my soul

Are preserved like those petals,

Now they ornament my workplace

Of time that weeps

Fate stricken,

A story of two sore pair of eyes

Promised of one future

 

O yes, I was loved!

You & Me

Standard

In me there is you,
But in you there is no me.
Happy, merry
In the elevator
Together-
Yes, together!
We climbed
Fashionably kissing
And you said
‘I love you’.
At your place,
We got high
We made love
And time came
When you urged
Me to go back.
You said,
‘No’ to stay together.

 
You said ‘No’
For once again,
As there is no me in you.
To you, I am
A reason of interruption
An excuse of disturbance
Friendship of convenience.
You pushed me away
Once again.
You know
About my bad trips
Did you then wonder
My whereabouts?
How I feel?
No. You did not.
Sleep, an excuse,
Is more important.
 

In same lift again,
Together, but not so together
We stood
In downgraded-fashion,
Unknowingly silent
You are an escapee
Pretender to pretend
As if nothing happened.
To ignore
My silent sighs
My unrevealed tears
And cracked up expectations.
Disturbed, agonized
You left me there
At my doorstep
Me to condole
Myself
With a liner
‘I give what I need to.’
 

I felt deserted,
Exploited.
What did you do then?
Again you ignored
The fact that
I am low.
And you moved on.
What we have
Is different from
What we had
For your silence and
Aloofness
Is Ruining
what we had as
‘US’.
You & Me ……& US.
