Pic : Self

you would know
what love is,

if only you
gave it a chance,

it will
and surely will,

destroy anything
and everything,

that you thought
it was,

till in the abyss
of total loss,

it will hold you
as you are,

and inspite of being
redundant, forsaken,

by those who
put values,

on what another
could be worth,

you’ll be absolutely
invaluable,

to the one
who holds you within,

like the breath
that he takes,

inhaling life
and exhaling with pain,

the chance
that you might,

not return
again.

Pic:Self  … Grew this from a seeding bulb, but the wind bent it, tried to straighten it, but it didn’t work, it was dying….but it needed to bloom, and so I did, what needed to be done.

sometimes
in life,
speaking
literally
or not,
you need
to cut,
an injured
stalk,

put it
in a vase,
filled
with water,
to give
the buds
perched
at its tips,
a chance
to bloom.

no one
will see,
the injury
it
suffered,
or
the hand
you lent,
to nature’s
cause,

but
you will
smile
like the
sun above,
when
you see
those precious
petals unfold.

Pic: Internet

amongst
friends
family
and
lovers,

characters
imprinted
deep,
seldom change
in life,

the stripes
we learn
to decipher,
and
read well,

throughout
the life,
of that
unique
relationship,

remain
their inherent
strength,
or weakness
imbibed,

an individual
that wields,
an unemotional
selfish
gun,

is programmed
to shoot
impulsively,
at what appears
at the cosshairs,

so why
be surprised,
at the
striped
barrel,

that in its
own accepted nature,
today
points at the space
between your eyes.

Pic: Internet

fireflies
light up
blinded
visions,
of the
night,

luminous
and
shining
like stars,
but almost
within
reach,

capitavated
i watch,
as you
appear,
and
disappear
again,

i reach out,
but
you
again,
are way
ahead
in space,

the twinkling
stars
watch
amused,
and have
the last
laugh,

as this
alchemist
of light,
teases,
but
refuses
to stay.
