drip drip drip
experiences
of life,
one at a time
inhaled
exhaled
bid good bye,
with smiles
of elation
or sighs
of loss,

drip drip drip
the pen
sings its song,
evergrowing
lists of goals
destinations
acquisitions
to be achieved,
camera clicks
documents
journeys
and accolades
received.

drip drip drip
intravenous
flows in
the water
of life,
memories
dance
to vital beats,
the triviality
of it all
unfolding now,
as stage curtains
slip slip slip
down.

The clock does not
turn back it’s hands
the best have often
tried and failed,

The winds tickling
the leaves to dance
too disappear onward
without a trace,

The sun and moon
the only tricksters at large
pretending what passes
can always return,

Me, was just a mist
touched by all the above
could neither fight the clock
nor the fleeting breeze,

And pretence was
a sacred mantle
only reserved for those two
celestial visual treats.

tunnel of light

no longer has
any complaints
that it was dark,
no longer asks
how much longer
this will last,
and no longer
do the eyes
search for the
proverbial light,
that marks
its imagined end.

for now
it feels a more
familiar territory,
with possibilities
of explorations
undistracted
unhindered
and undefined,
for now strangely
accustomed to
to the external
darkness,
there seems
to be
alive within,
some silent
guiding light.

for what
had started
as a lonely trek,
through an apparent
fortified encasing
of dark walls,
has slowly
transformed
those limiting
boundaries,
into a blackboard
for random words,
chiselled
onto its stone,
to mark this
passing presence,
in the here
and the now.

paradoxically,

the journey
goes on
no longer
motivated by
the hope
of an end,
or the vision
of a light
nor the pressure
of maintaining
any pace,

it now happens
on its own,
as the makeshift
blackboard,
preserves
each etched word
close to its heart,
and slowly
and willingly,
continues
to run,
out of space.
