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!

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!

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

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!
