Eroded Dreams

Our paths crossed
And the dust settled
Our dreams were eroded
Like life was flowing out
And I could not breathe

Everything seemed the same
You were no longer there
Not in my arms
Not even in sight
As I stood waiting alone

Gazing stars all night
And they would not fall
No luck for me to grab
Till the waves washed away
Illusions, day by day

No fear I hold
Bare feet cold
Smile with the winds
I was alive once
No second chance

Love in a Wisp

A wisp of love led me astray
Sipping the toxins unknown, dismay

See rains in May, clouds tearing the sun
Supposing – the mist dripped one by one

It were tears, leading solitary fears
Not willing to give up, fleeting warmth

Sniping the reality, like a foreign dream
Call into question the innocent sleep

Insane – the crossroads, no one around
The winds playing, make a pensive sound

The wide light orange, kicks in a hint
A shadow’s stint, demands to lead a way

Blinded by trust, the clouds too follow
Searching for morrow, unsated desires

Lying deep within the illimitable oceans
The darkest secrets of broken hearts

Will never be the same – love in a wisp
Love in a wisp, devil’s sip, angels dip

Shadows of reality

Shadows of reality
Darkness in prosperity

Don’t be a fool
You’re no more in school

Turn around
Listen to that sound

Its calling you by its side
You just should not hide

Run on this ground
Now cease to frown

Life is beautiful
You got to be a bit careful

Just untie your soul
Why don’t you wanna go

Stop living life in grids
Open up the lids

And fly at least try
Stand up again tall

Let life take a call
It may hit, every bit

And you cant go away
Coz You ought to stay

Found Profoundness

The squall of darkness
Was never heard

Locked inside
A room of blood

When the doors opened
Dreams set ajar

There was an empty canvas
to paint the clouds green

Living in constraints
Not any longer

Because there was a reason
Trapped in a season called
LIFETIME

Found profoundness
Galloping inspiration

Life changed forever
At last to find

Aspirations chasing
And the world dreaming

About me, love
While I was Living

A lifetime, A dream
In every little moment

Happy Endings..

Stayed
With the bruises for long

Been
In pain throughout

Futile efforts
Chasing my dreams

Wandering alone
The silence screams

Empty,
Without love were vases

Until you walked
Filling blank spaces

Muted

Flower
Colored the deserts

Did not know how

Abandoned,
No longer now!

Mostly Ordinary

Mostly ordinary, with wonder-working desires
Crashing through the gates, among the outliers

White faux chiffon flooring through the stairs
Here comes the princess with her glorious flair

No one seems to recognize her face
Blushes shining pink with her heart’s race

Fragility of life resurfaces again
Looking at the bystanders in flawless pain

Digging for a meaning all over the place
Her eyes meet the lovely man’s filled with haze

Uninterested, anonymous, with no stint of notice, he passes
Why did she pick him from the unenlightened masses

Let down, hurt, fear of ignorance gripping hard
In midst of a dark tunnel, waiting for the light, scarred

Golden gloss scandals under the velvet red
Walking miles in brutal seasons without comforts of a shed

Everything’s lucent like a painted canvas behind a tissue
Aimlessly wandering in woods arriving on a faulty cue

Love comes with a price, not distributed for free
It can happen anywhere, even under a lonely tree
