Love Affair

She was waiting endlessly without a blink

All covered with grey; remorse stuck on her face

Lifeless life, dusty eyes, blistering breath

Desiccated face; her beauty covered in gales

Longing for the pour to quench the clogging thirst

Ah! The sudden splatter on her scorching soul  

Oohing with a shiver; releasing a hazy huff

She can feel the sprinkle of love!

A drop of faith that he will never betray

How beautiful she looks under his adoration

Miles of separation and destined not to meet

But nothing can stop their love to reach

As she will always look up with all the trust

And his love will rain down to embrace her!

Crossroads

You are roving through the terrains

On not so bumpy ways

The track seems easy and straight

Road map imprinted in mind

Terminus of journey set in the eyes

Abruptly! You brake at a standstill

Highway splits into two

You are on the crossroads

Decide! The turn of the steering

Lot of crowd heading to the right

Few can be seen on the left side

Make a choice; join the herd to be safe!

Or take a left if your heart says

Close your eyes; talk to the self

Leap of faith or the safety net

Make a purest bid with your conscience

On the crossroads of life; it’s your call

Stick to the conviction; make a decision.
