Anklets

No do not break those anklets
They are not shackles
They are your identity!
They are not holding you back
evil snake slithers in slowly!
Good comes with pomp and music
The harbinger of everything pure
It will lead you right.. for sure!

Please do not remove these blobs of tinkles
Each time it breaks it is rejoined
Like phoenix.. it rises again
From the dance of pleasure and pain
So are you redefined in every walk of life
Why this hesitation why this strife ?

These anklets are not just ornaments, dear
Its the symbol of femininity
Who but a ravaged lover knows
What the sound of anklets holds
Stopper of many a heart beat
Creating havoc with every step..
Singing languidly on your feet
These anklets are not mere adornment
It is you honey.. please don’t leave it back

In search of answer..

In silence I seek answers
For questions unformed
Is it any wonder
that Silence is all i get ?

As I traverse through the inroads
Of my rambling mind
Noise ..Noise everywhere..It comforts
Voices from forgotten past.. Explodes!
What am I trying to find ?

There I see a door that I avoid
Door that holds all the answers I seek
Yet always am afraid to reach
To open.. afraid to find
What if there is nothing but a teeming void ?

You and me

Binded by ashes of time
Though apart.. together in this rhyme
As we go through the mime
Called life

You and me
Traversing the guilty roads of past
Bludgeoned by regret and memories
Why didnt it last ?

Here we are again, Wanderers in refuge
Vagrants of my dreams
Remembered in this verse
Please disperse!

A post card to heaven

Some loosely binded words

Ernest pleas

Deep abiding faith

Vying with haunting past’s wraith

Looking for a beacon

Some ray of hope

Longing to enliven

Longing to cope

She writes a letter

A wee little girl of ten

A letter with no forwarding address…

A post card to heaven

Few lines from my orkut profile…..

In silence I seek answers
For questions unformed
Is it any wonder
that Silence is all i get ?

–xx–00–xx–00–xx–

I’ll do my time and I won’t argue
Coz reason some where has gone askew
Words exchanged though none worth a shit
You can think what you may seem fit
Its not me who incited the flame..
And its not me who appropriated the blame

High

Soar high. higher even more
The sky is urs to conquer
Do not look down
Look upon the stars

Its your day today
Time to prove your mettle
Wait not for anyone else
Am here looking out for you

The path is not smooth
Wind plays tricks with you
So does the burning sun
Do not rest your wings yet

Its just half way through
Nay, do not ever think of quitting
Its you who is leading
Am here to bask in glory
Of your first victory

Oh there you are so near to the finish line
Dancing all the way, reveling in your skills
Oh aren’t you enjoying it now?
Oh why did you look down ?
And you come reeling … Crashed!

Oh my baby, What did I do
Now You are so high.. higher than high
And I can never reach you even if i try
I wanted you to win the race
I wanted you to be an ace
But I never ever wanted you to die…..

Secret Love

There you were waiting beneath the tree
And I observing you, on the sly
As the time slowly crawls by….

How I wish I was that gust of wind
caressing your hair
while u slept without any care

I wish I was that rain drop
Flowing from your forehead gently
Stealthily stopping on your lip

What wouldnt I give to be that bag
slinging on your arm all day
never forgotten, never left astray

I wish I was that moon beam
Making love to you; agleam
While you sleep..in dream

I can see your profile
Classic face with bohemian hairstyle,
Oh you have me beguiled!

But I guess its time to stop dreaming, to go
She’s here , your love
Radiant in happiness, aglow

My love was destined to fail
The ship drowned before it sails
Like the autumn leaves on the trail

Secret, stolen memories
Long forgotten auguries
It will remain in some nook
Of my heart
Like a flattened rose
In an long forgotten book
