Alone and longing…


P.S:  Its a bit sad i know but its in reply to an email a friend sent…


Good bye

Good bye my love.

Fallacies of this recalcitrant heart shall  trouble you no longer.
For the skies in which its dreams flew is overcast with tears.

Good bye my love.

Tapestries of these tattered emotions shall choke you no longer
For the thread of hope that held it together is tangled beyond repair.

Good bye my love.

Cobwebs of eager questions shall addle you no longer
For the inquisitive words that spun endlessly have tumbled in despair!

Good bye my love.

Fountain of tender musings shall  drown you no longer
For the walls that contained it has been broken asunder

Good bye my love,

Rainbows of my imagination shall color you no longer
For the bleakness of my grief has smeared it forever

Good bye my love, my capricious fantasy
From the shackles of my heart, I cast you free


Tonight lets write a poem
While you dwadldle with the meter
I shall find the rhyme.

Tonight lets write a poem
While I describe the twinkling stars and inky blue sky
You can play with the clouds flitting by

Tonight lets write a poem
While you carve out a beautiful phrase,
I shall steal the shine from your absent gaze

Tonight lets write a poem.
While I go through the whole gamut of emotions,
You can fly high on imagination…

so shall we write a poem tonight?

Spewing rubbish!

To see is not to see.

To be is not to be.

To lie is to say the truth

And to be honest is hornet’s nest

Let me just not see.

Let me just not be

I wonder what is this about

Nonsense I seem to spout!

But if randomness is not random

Wouldn’t that just mean

Something is yet to be gleaned?

I surround myself with emptiness.

It is never empty.

For nothingness holds just that.


I find myself time and again getting lost.

I find myself.

getting lost.

If I could just borrow words.

Transcend meanings..

May be then I can leave behind

This sinking feeling.

May be then I shall

Expel this “if” and this “may be”

From my vocabulary.

If only!

Something stupid! ** sigh**

I bought myself some colicy dreams

I found it bursting through the seams

“I want to live” it said to me

“May be today you shall sleep”

I bought myself some crazy thoughts

Even though they were a sorry lot

Chocolate flavored words and sinful lies

I chose them over.. I chose them! that should suffice

I wrote myself some hazy verse

Stroke them through and kept them terse

And yet I struggle to make some sense.

I guess I should stop this nonsense!

Love is a flower

Love is a flower you got to grow
Let it bloom, spread its charm
Keep it away from worldly harm

Love is a flower you got to share
Even when the wind doth blow
Hold it gently with loving care

Like the dandelion in the wind, let it glide
It will return, you got to abide
Love is a flower you never throw

Prompted at : Carry on tuesday

Hazy lines!

Stealing glances, stealing chances,

That night

A moment frozen.

A flicker of light

A snicker of fright

Eternity of shame awaited me.

Thwarted dreams ? Thwarted though it seems..

I lived through the chocolate flavored nights

Only to be blinded..

By the misshapen brittle light!

Acrostic Prompts

Cold winds sweeped the mighty lanes

Roaring thunder clashed with the lightening.

Yet not a drop escaped in silent mourning.


Jostling horns warring with

Angry voices

May god save us from the ghastly traffic jams!


P.S: All the prompts are from Acrostic Only. Will edit add more as and when I write on other prompts 🙂
