Eyes yearning for that one sight

Ears hankering for that sweet whisper

Fingers lingering to entwine

Skin longing for warmth

As I stand by the porch

Watching the twinkling night sky

Wishing for the twinkle in my dark life


Swamped by a feeling,

A feeling of being alone in a crowd

A feeling of being lost in the woods

Surrounded by regret and submerged by guilt

I go about my daily chores

Like a body without soul

Helpless & hapless


Days have gone by and seasons have changed

My wait, however still remains the same

Words waiting to be said, emotions waiting to unfold

Even as you continue to remain aloof

And every passing moment is pushing a nail

In the coffin of my hope

A hope, that there will be a day

When I could die without regret!





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


There was a woman….

There was a woman

By the street

Who was beautiful to say the least

Eyes waiting to catch her sight

And ears longing to hear her tale


She was a damsel

Who belonged to be in the castle

Was eligible to be with a prince

Often wondered how she ended up in the street


She was like a lotus in the swamps

Looked upon by one and all

Each willing to get dirty

Just to be the lucky one

To hold her with their hand


There were many who proposed her

But there were also those like me

Who felt shy to approach her

There were so many reasons to love her

Yet every other woman had a reason to envy her


One fine morning I decided to approach her

I wanted to look her in her eyes

Tides of expectation were rising within me

Fear of drowning in her oceanic blue eyes

Lingered within me

As I searched for ways to anchor my courage

And express the feeling that I was harboring within me


I knocked on her door

Moments passed by without any noise

It was not long before I realized

She had left

Just the previous night


My feelings once again buried within my heart

I wonder how long it shall carry the weight

For I wish, there comes a day

When I get freed from this terrible state


There was a woman

Was she for real..or was she a mere dream

Often I pondered as I looked down the street….
