Heartsong

Pic : Self

tell me
a song
you sing,

a song
that makes
you smile,

tell me
the secrets
it holds,

the meanings
no one else
knows,

tell me
amongst
the verses,

the words
that bring
you alive,

I tried,
could never
write that song,

so tell me
and I will
sing it along.

Tiptoeing

Pic : Self

controlled
interactions,

caused by
long gone pasts,

perceived scars
still guiding,

conditioning
the present,

to circumvent
the risks,

of the deep
ravines,

where only
two,

together
can fall,

and destiny
waits,

somewhat
impatiently,

with its
invisible arms,

for their eyes
to meet,

and their feet
to trip,

so it can
carry them to,

a higher
ground.

Sea Shores

Pic : Self

they walk happily
on the shore,

hands held
to a light swing,

content smiles
speaking in silence,

the sound of waves
the background score,

the distance done
they both turn around,

start to walk
back to the start,

the realisation hits
their observant eyes,

the past footprints
visible no more,

the grip tightens
on each others hands,

its the present that exists
and only that is sure,

the smiles return
with a renewed glow,

the stride returns
with surer steps,

the locked hands
now devoid of gaps.

Stars

Pic : Self

she beckons
and i walk slowly
towards her,

serene and calm
i walk
along her shore,

every now
and then
her waves flirting,

teasing me to step
a little further
into her owned zone,

each footstep
of mine effortlessly
sinking,

into the moist hold
of her warm
melting sands,

my eyes captivated
by her beauty
and its wide expanse,

the music
of her waves
a melody unheard,

by ears used to
the cacophony
of irrelevant urban life,

the sense
of peace and calm
that she brought,

i had never felt
on land
or in life before,

tranquility
was a probably
a word coined,

to define
this very feeling
which i felt now,

i slowly
walked on
imagining consciously,

a home built
on this serene
yet effervescent shore,

till the act changed
and the moon
came out,

making the tides rise
pushing me
away from her,

and as her yearning
for her original
lover grew,

i resign myself
to a destiny
of those,

who had also walked
this very
dreamy shore,

and today shine
as those stars
of the night,

that had
the strength
but could not fight,

the hold the moon
would always have
over her.

Drowned

Pic : Self

Drowned
in
the sea,

now I seek
no
shore,

no footsteps
on the
sand,

to mark
a
presence,

of an
existence,
that really,

was of
relevance
no more.

The depths
are now
mine,

and on the
surface
I roll,

I hold
the
sunset,

and I
flirt
with the moon,

a drop
of
water,

now
an ocean
am I.

Come
look
for me,

on
any
shore,

I’ll steal
the
sand,

beneath
your
feet,

and
engulf
you like,

I couldn’t
have
before.
