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.
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.
“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.
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. . .
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!!.
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.
