Strangers at night

Coming back home from a tired day’s work

I lay on my bed hoping for a sound sleep

Wasn’t long before I felt someone

Approach me uncannily

She started whispering in my ears

My initial resistance went waste

And it wasn’t long before I surrendered

She ensured her pleasure

Leaving her mark on me.

Nights passed, days passed

Her bite still fresh in my mind

My beats started increasing

Shivers ran down my spine and

The mercury kept rising

Medicines took their time

As I realized the importance

Of having a mosquito repellent

Always by my side

Tears…..

images

Tears

Tears of joy

Tears of sorrow

Tears of pain

There lies a tear for every case

 

The tear that appears

When we see our beloved

Care for us

The tear that appears

When thy beloved is going away from you

The tear that appears

When thy beloved has separated from you

 

Don’t judge my state by the tears you see

For tears know only to flow

Sometimes flowing uninhibited

But careful at times

Be it joy or sorrow or pain

Ask my heart what it feels

Alas, only if you could know my heart

Tears…

Haiku – Rains…

Drops of rain

Dark clouds hanging by the sky

But for life on ground it’s

A ray of new light!

 

Often waiting

Just for few drops of water

Hoping for rain!

 

Then falls the first drop

That brings relief to many

And grief to few

 

Quenching soils thirst

Filling up the ponds and wells

Swamping the houses

 

Children playing in muddle

Couples in a cuddle

Orphans watch

 

Strange is life

For its green for some

And arid for few!

Vibes

My best friend says its like reaching a nirvana when it comes to friendship..My another sweet friend seems to be pleasantly surprised…well these are a few examples of the reactions, when I had told them what I had experienced!

I have often been labeled as an emotionless person, cold hearted, one who ‘thinks’ but does not ‘feel’ etc etc.. Sometimes actions is all that you would be judged upon in your life and often people fail to notice the real reason behind those actions. This post is not intended to talk about actions and reactions, but would like to highlight something that goes beyond action and reactions, the thing that people feel deep within themselves not only about themselves but also about the ones you care about, for that someone who has a special place in thy heart.

There are people who can read your face and get a sense of what you are feeling. But in today’s age when most of the conversations happen on the cool chatting tools, you need not worry about who is reading your face, a simple smiley post is good enough to showcase you are happy, when deep within you are not..you could revert to technology to fake your feelings, but there ain’t any technology available that prevents you from spreading your feelings to the outside world at a meta physical level..

There have been few occasions when I have experienced this for 2 of my close friends and both the times my subconscious was right… Here are few lines dedicated for those 2 lovely friend of mine:

You may not meet me

You may not talk with me

You may not write to me

For reasons of your own, you might even ignore me

For you think you can hide it

And you think you can fake it

But that my friend is a mistake

 

You may say you are happy

You may say you are merry

And insist there is no reason to worry

But I can’t help but sense something is murky

It may not be overt to me

But I must say, things are neither concealed to me

 

You may have some pain

You may not feel at ease

And time would seem to have seized

But that’s not the end of the road

My dear friend, I must say

 

I must say, I can sense your pain

I can sense your distress

Don’t feel alone in this phase

Needless to say, we can find some way

As we traverse this phase of darkness together

In search of the light

To celebrate a new and wonderful day

A strange feeling…..

Strange is this moment in life

It wants to live more

When it realizes death is coming by

 

It wants to drain itself in the rain

To extinguish all its flame

It wants to sail the sea

Even though it feared drowning

It wants to sing a song

Even if it makes people frown

It wants to dance like an insane

Without caring to explain

 

It wants to do those things

Which it had longed for

It wants to break all rules

Which it abided like a saint

It wants to be inebriated

Even though it was a teetotaler

It wants to laugh,

When it hardly smiled

It wants to make a speech

When silence was what it had preached

It wants to show some courage

Even though coward was its surname

 

It wants to reach out to that friend

With whom it refused to speak

It wants to lie in those arms

Which once waited with open arms

It wants to hold the hand of that someone special

And say you were the one whom I loved

 

As it prepares to die,

It wishes to live any one moment

It wants to die its way

When it lived all its life

On someone else’s say

 

We await to live your tale……

Tonight our friend
You take a flight
A flight to a new place
With an all new case

You may be nervous
You may be anxious
But we all know that is simply you 🙂
This is a moment of joy
In which we all take pride,
As you get ready for your new flight

New people await you
New moments bide for you
Capture those in your stride
And make sure you cherish them
For the remainder of your life

You may feel you are by your own
With so many new faces all around you
We may not be there in person
But we guarantee our thoughts & wishes
Would always be with you
When you feel lonely, here is what we tell you
Close your eyes for a moment
And there we are
Ever so near to you

Strange is happiness,
For sometimes it leaves the air moist
Your absence will surely leave a void
But we know time will fly
And you will be back
With a new feather on your back

Till that time
We bid you good bye
Enjoy your flight
And return back merry with an even broader smile
As we await, to listen & live your tale!

This is a poem dedicated to a friend who prepares herself for a new assignment and will be away for some time, even as the friends take pride in her new assignment, they eagerly await for her to be back and live a tale from her new flight.
