k a r m a

i would
have stopped,
a long
time back,

the chase
the hope,
of what i know
could be,

but apparently
there’s a secret,
no one else
tells you so,

the universe,
is actually
a lazy
co-conspirator,

secretly working,
on a manually
triggered
karmic spring,

so i keep at it,
in the best
and only way
that i seem to know,

seeding
honest words,
into it’s
daily grind,

hoping
that someday,
they’ll make you
change your mind.

muse o’ mine

Pic: Internet

With your
prior
sought
permission,
of my
remaining,
exercisable
esteemed
might,

i have
to say
you drive
me nuts,
with the
games,
that you
constantly
play,

and
the trouble
that i get
into,
for the
words
that
eventually
fall out,

of this
fallible
human,
that you
constantly
put,
in a
deceptive
array of
dismay,

you
ought
to know,
that i
blame
you,
with all
my heart
and soul,

for the
intense
pain,
my random
verses
probably
cause,
the great
poets
of all times,

who
always
had muses
that
were
so worth
their
pursuit,
inspiration
and time,

as well
for this
court jester,
who writes
in words
that are
neither poetic
nor follow
any framed
rules,

but
who still
always
holds you,
above
any other
existing,
or
ever existed
soul
inspiring
muse.

r i p p l e s (the conclusion)

Pic: Internet

your
eyes
meet
mine,

as the
stone
you threw
sinks deep,

you mentally
calculate
the depth
of damage,

smile
at the
obvious
success,

and as
devilish
as you
may seem,

to a
clueless
presumptuous
outsider,

i know
you slowly
build
the bedrock,

that’ll
someday be
the story
of you and me.

Y O U !

you are
the invisible
air
i breathe,
the oxygen
my lungs
are programmed
to seek,

you are not
a need
or a want,
that i
have a
choice
to forego,
if at all,

you are
an essential
ingredient
for my
very
existence
in this
visible skin,

i may
commit
the ego’s
folly
to keep
you out
for a few
sadistic
moments,

but
my survival
still
depends,
on you
knowing
my reality
within,

and being
the larger
of the two,
as in my
unequvivocal
acceptance
will always
be,

for without
my dose
of what
is you,
i am
as good
as anyone
who is
six feet
deep.
