Loneliness

Alone and desolate I wander
On the roads long abandoned
Within my mind,am trying to find
Something…
Something lost in oblivion
That something is “us”

As the ebony sky cries with me
and dark clouds covers the moon
As the nightangle croons in the night
Shadows of the past
follow me
Down the forbidden memory lane

The trees sway with an unbidden symphony
And beetles sing hauntingly
And I remember
Our days together.. the bliss
I remember.. your touch.. your kiss
And when the wind blows through my hair
My lonesome heart howls in despair

Trying hard to fill this void
Failing yet again to avoid
That faint glimmer of hope
And yet again I wet my pillow
Late in the night
I pine in bittersweet sorrow

Loneliness
a bitter pill to swallow

Mother

Those little moments that we share
Stolen from time
Days of joys, love and care

Warm nights in your lap
As you created magic with words
Alive and absurd

Lazy Sunday afternoons
Singing wayward.. offbeat tunes
drooping eyes to your croon

every morning full of chaos
Wake up alarm..
Your voice so cross

And the evenings spent in wait
To and fro on the porch
And you come through the gate

And one day you didnt turn up
Oh who cast an evil eye
On my over flowing cup

Since that day I have never been same
Waited every since but you never came
And I shed a lonely tear

Ever since then I am bereft
No one to sing to me
No one to care
No one to say I will be there

I hear your voice in reverberating silence
I see you coming through the swirling mist
I know you are not ever coming back
I do not know why I still persist

This void in me no one can fill
I miss you so much oh mother!
How can there be any other?

Voices in my head

Voices in my head
Do they ever dread
Silence… unreachable

In some corner of my heart
hidden under many layers
A lost child.. Some dreams thwarted

Voices from the past
In a different role cast
Ever changing .. ever lingering

These serenades
Will they ever fade
Into nothingness

Will they ?

She


Your dazzling smile,
a mile wide,
Ocean of grief it hides

Your twinkling eyes,
Sheds tears of pearl,
When alone,
in the bed you curl

No one comes to stop that tide!

Oh maiden fair!
Your feet are bare
As u trudge in pain

Laden with responsibilities
Guilt and duty
Are your booty
As you walk with trembling unsure steps!

Scarred is your heart,
Scarred your soul
And no one to hold..
To console

No one seems to care!

So tired you are.. so alone
Despair. your companion
You.. Fate’s minion

My angel come into my bosom
Oh the unsung symphony
the unheard harmony
Rest awhile
Rest.. in me with a smile

Death beckons….

journey unknown

Away from home,
I wilderness I roam
Wilderness so desolate
Is it too late?

There is darkness all around
No one is to be found
To comfort
Cant anyone make an effort?

In stillness of the night,
I fight,
A lonely battle
Someone come and startle!
Me…. Is this fatal ?

I want to flee
I want to run from me!
But where??? How???
I do not know!
Cant anyone show ?

The coldness of night chills
Tears in my eyes fills
In memories I am drowned!
Won’t anyone come around?

This road is long and weary
And the forest deep
The surrounding is so scary..
Wont anyone come along?
wont anyone peep?

Evening

An evening to remember
Few words.. soft and tender
Over a cup of coffee
Few moments shared
Few memories made
As the evenlight fades
street lights glowing.. cozy!
A link formed slowly and yet strong
Its not that we belong
Strangers on the road of life
Two steps we walk along
to separate at the next bend
