have you ever
lost a piece
of writing,

where years
of ink rested
in short stories,

some complete
to your mind
yet not fully,

some started
and left to thaw
for a revisit,

have you ever
lost a piece
of you,

in the words
on those
missing sheets,

knowing the past
will never
find ink again,

and the blank sheets
that now
lie in front,

will only sip
those drops
that tell a story,

which has
a beginning
in today.

you don’t know
the storms
i have faced,

you don’t know
the fears
i have erased,

you may
know me
as what i was,

but don’t
test me
to what i can be,

the essence of fire
is always
the same,

in a lamp
it is light
which burns to give,

in a forest
it’s a  a fire
raging its wrath,

undermine
any energy
and you risk its ire,

don’t judge the form
neither
the visible matter,

when lightening falls
it seldom comes
announced,

and the tallest then
crumble
to the ground.

yes
it is,
so much worse
than you thought,
it could ever be,
but
breathe,

breathe yourself
slowly
back to life,
there is more
to this book,
than this chapter’s
plight,

don’t let
the weight
of this worrisome
plot,
hold you back
from moving
ahead,

breath deep,
and blow on it
with all your strength,
this page
is meant
to turn,
it eventually will,

while you,
are meant
to go on and on,
one breath
at a time,
and you too
eventually will.

Pic : Stolen from a friend!

it still is
a wonderful
memory,
that i
hold dear,
somewhere
in the counting
of my blessings,
and know
that i
always will,

when the sun
had set,
and the lights
of the world,
one by one
were
switched off,
to my
desperately
searching
eyes,

the nights
when even
the moon
and stars,
chose
to hide
behind,
the unexpectedly
biased
clouds,

a match
you struck,
a flame
you lit,
a lamp
of light,
a hand –
which held
no prejudice
within,

and i learnt
the meaning,
the value
of friendship,
and that
it alone,
on its own,
can rise
beyond,
any defined
limits.

catch me, if you can

Pic : Internet

nobody
catches
a falling
star,
they see
and wish on it
their troubles
away,

maybe
it does oblige
and take
their weight away,
for those who fall
seldom wish
the same
on others,

the sky however
remains as
bejeweled
as ever,
the eyes
go back
to what can
be beheld,

but nobody
catches
a falling
star.
