Love

Many moons floated in the pool of eyes

Many suns eclipse my Canvas of life

‘WHY’ the question strangled me for years

The endless wait never left my side…

Enough! I said to myself

I tied ‘WHY’ along with all the sorrows

And dumped it into the deepest well

I’m happy; I have learnt to love myself!

Black or white?

Zebra stripes, crossing lines, and inked pages

Dreams of subconscious minds, nights to days

Morals and sins, parting wrong from right

You hate, you love, you think and you do

Why everything appears black and white!

Look again! A drop of black emerging in white

Can you see the dance of light into the darks

On the horizon, no absolute truth or the perfect lie

People are not monochrome as they look

How can you tell life is black or white!

You insist to see everything in two shades

The dark colour for you maybe my white

Holes in the divider that you ignored

No complete black or spot-less white

Did I tell you? I‘m grey from the inside!

Three women in my life

You can call them my best friends

Family, supports or people in my life

They being splendour of strength to me

Three pillars, completing the fourth side

The first one brought me into this world

Another is blood, born to the same mother

And the third is part soul; calls me mommy

I always have these three women for me

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!
