Life would be very easy if everything fell in its place, everything we wish came true, every unspoken desire is fulfilled. But its not this way. Life leaves us at crossroads, at a wrong turn sometimes. I feel it is for us not to take life for granted, to learn to keep it simple but strive hard to move forward with it.


Almost Heaven

Lost in the pandemonium in life

and surrounded by the thoughts

I find a jagged thought haunting me

reminding me the very purpose of my existence

is nothing but to find my ways out

of the so called grandeur life.

To find the simple truth, that we often

ignore among all the flashy colors around.

I deny the thoughts that creep in,

in search of the almost heaven.

To find the love my heart craves for,

to find someone waiting for me

after I fight my way back home

from the thorny clutches of the world.

Someone I could rely on,

with whom I can feel loved,

with whom I can make any place

the almost heaven I look for.

The place laden by the beautiful

thoughts of our minds, filled with

the love of our hearts. Almost heaven

the place where a new life could blossom,

caressed and nestled in the bosom of my love.

Almost heaven in the cacophonous world

is where my mind takes me.

Almost heaven, that is where I want to be.




Ease it up

Its all down
you gotta pull it up.
Life, its never easy
you gotta ease it up.
A hard rock song
you can’t sing it light.
A soothing melody
you can’t play it hard.
A bit of this and
a bit of that.
When its all down
you gotta pull it up
You gotta ease it up

Life – a short story

“Hello” answered she when I called. A silence of happiness lingered in the moment. Even time bid goodbye. “Hello” answered she again. The smile seemed to stretch on my face.  “Hello” answered she again. Harsh she was this time  but yet mellow. The first drop of my tears gained momentum and fell. Tears rolled down the small crater on my cheeks created by my smile. “Who is it” yelled she, now. With nothing to speak all that she could probably hear was my heart, beating, pumping in love for her. This moment where I was lost in the beauty of her face, imagining if she were here beside me. “Is it you” spoke she and the moment came alive. Time seemed to have come by, giving me another chance. Chance to be with her. I could hear her say my name and say “please come home…”, I could hear the pain in her cry she had gone through without me. For I left her alone in the world. Helpless I was, helpless I am for time took away something which belonged to her, from me. “I can never return” I said crying in pain. “I am sorry” I said and hung the phone. For she can live waiting for me, cursing me for I left her but can’t live if I die in her arms. Smiling with the ecstasy of listening to her I left the world with a hole in my heart which only belonged to her.

Her smile

Lit by the sullen light of the moon
hidden behind the gray clouds,
the air, had an eerie green glow.
Midst the flashy lights of a noisy winter street
without the wings of the fairy,
without the magical wand of the wizard,
she cast a spell, mystical in every sense.
The smile of a lifetime,
and its presence on her eyes.
Cocooning the feelings I had lived so far
awaiting to drift in wisps.
I was lost, drifted away.
Away from the lights and noise,
I saw us together and the sun
shining bright on us.
Her eyes said a million things,
none of which I could read.
Enchanted by her smile,
confused, trying to find the meanings
in her tacit smile.
I was drowned with her thought.
Blurred, saw her face glimmer.
I closed my eyes, to clear my sight,
but only to lose her.
I lost her before I could
open my heart and say
how much I loved her.
I couldn’t feel the pain though,
I was still numb, lost in her.
Back to the busy street
all I have is a memory, her smile.


I see the rising sun
A hope of life to many
I trust its presence
Even though it’ll set
I pray to thee
To help me sail the day
I believe  in Him
Even though I can’t see
I see the people
Fighting for their existence
I smile, I look at me
For I am doing the same
I feel the breeze
I believe it will stay
Even though its always moving
It’s a day
Like any other, never tired
It keeps coming
You got to believe in it

two faces

you said time will heal
time has passed by
like it had to, healing the sorrows
then why do i still feel the pain
why do i call for you
when i know you aren’t listening
why do i miss you
when i know you aren’t gonna come back
like an old kite i glide in the sky
with the delusion of being sharp
flocking with the other birds
i live my life pleasing myself
for a new dawn to come
baffled by the fantasies which mind chooses
in order to fulfill its greedy thoughts
i cry for help without realizing how time has passed by
a new dawn is across the horizon
it calms my mind only for the moment
as i live the moment, the moment of my life
time fades it away
with a hollow heart carrying
nothing but ashes, ashes from the burning desire
of being together, together with you
i pretend to have found  what i want
i smile, i laugh, i drink, i play, i sleep
i see the world, i pray to Him to heal the sorrows
for the world has greater sorrows
i laugh at me
like i laughed at time
for time heals, it needs time
i fly like a bird today
free from the bondage of being tied
i feel my heart today
for i have realized what it needs
love and smile as i carry with me
i conquer the mind
i baffle the world with my thoughts, my wit, my smile
its a new day in the same life
life i learned to live with two faces. . .

The Road

Where shall you lead me to ?
I shall lead you where you want to be.
For I shall warn you, if you should follow me
follow me with no thought of how and why.
Follow me with love in heart,
follow me with trust in mind,
for I shall never digress you from where you want to be.
Don’t fear, for there shall be thorns on the way.
Don’t fear, for there shall be others with hatred.
Fear is the biggest enemy of you.
Fear weakens your heart and mind.
You are a soul whose mind is fickle.
You are a soul whose heart is bound to attachments.
Shun your fear and follow me with faith.
For I shall help you to learn what is wrong and
what is right on the path that you choose.
Don’t leave me, if you are caught in a turmoil, mind is strong.
Don’t leave me, if you submerge in the ocean of attachments, heart is big.
With love and faith step ahead and follow me.
Walk with me through the road what we know as Life.
Life is blissful. Life is full of love.
You are the one who has to make a choice.
For I shall never leave you if you should choose me.

Journey of Life !! (Part II)

Its hard to learn
that all the love and hatred,
happiness and sorrows
are just a part of life but not life.

It is simply nothing
but something we need to overlook
as the journey of life continues.

Try and see the broader
aspect of this journey as
memories eventually fade out.
Its just an amuse we need to “beware” of.

Every moment this journey unfolds
before us something known as “Divine”.
It is this Divinity we
are actually searching for
knowingly or unknowingly.

Surrender yourself to Thee
and you can never be affected
by any memories.
Give all you have you think is yours
to Thee and Thy shall
understand the meaning of this
journey – the Life!!.

Journey of Life!! (Part I)


There comes a time in life

when we find ourselves in the crossroads.

Trying to figure out

which path to take.

Some follow their heart

while some toss a coin.

Most of them seek the advice of others

while a few move on with whatever comes forth them.

Amidst all the confusion and

anxiety of starting a new journey

we forget the road

we had taken to reach the crossroads.

From the new road taken

while we are continuing

the beautiful journey of life

spare a little time to remember

the Friends and foes,

the Laughter and sorrows you shared with them

to reach where you are today.

We will indeed find them

to be the best days

we had in our life.

Frame every joyous moment of life

as these sweet memories

becomes a reason for us

to smile in the dismal times of our life.

to be continued…
