navigating at a certain speed
cruising fast to overtake the sun
peeping as the horizon bleeds
trying to catch up before it’s gone

like a man desiring for her love
he needs some quick response to win her heart
in the twilight of life he needs to rise above
life’s a sea of risks, chances can tear them apart…

The Sketch…

the course seems to be so strange
stretched far as the eyes could see
lines full of spiny little thorns
tracing life’s untold painful byways

honeyed path, their moments are sweet
unmindful of those pauperized ones they see on the street
desirous hands ignored not one gold they’ve shared

pretty face, unkind heart,
familiar but not a godly
sketch of a human being

Then you yourself begin falling like a tear

I see the unending horizon from afar
I feel the loneliness that’s far beyond
I don’t know the reason alienating the star
Why is it from me, you’re so very far ?

A line that divides the ocean from the sky
As I get closer, it runs away from my eyes
The nearer I get, the farther the horizon
When do I get warm to your distant emotion ?

I can only see the stars at night
The day seems so envious they’re out of sight
When skies are clear, you choose night to appear
Then you yourself begin falling like a tear

There’s no losing chance for a heart that waits
Time will tell when to open the gates
The far horizon and the stars at night
Into my heart they will all be tied…

Memories

when no one else deserves a praise
no one to be cheered about
stare at the wall and a figure will come
remembering what has been spent and done

look back and relive the life
recall those happy memories that made you smile
don’t miss those bitter ones that made you cry
lessons were learned from those times gone by

Music I Hear…

there’s music i hear
don’t know where it’s coming from
my hands are tapping the board
look, what have I done

my lips are murmuring
head moving, up, down, left, and right
feet moves forward, backward, and sideward
but i’m not a dance wizard

lay me in a spell
unchain me from the shackles of doubts
free me from mental pressure
lend me a soft closure


chances share me the joy to sing
and for a moment i feel free
like a tree i hide under its shade
where my anguish, hurts and gripes fade…

morning has risen
inflaming hearts to smile
inspiring faces to grapple with
issues and questions of the day
morning meets worries
obstacles, doubts and puzzles
but unexpectedly they meet,
answers and solutions

lifting someone’s spirit

Waiting…

I remember how it was
waiting for you at any instance
it was always like
a discomfort for me
awaiting cure

waiting for you at any place
was like hell of a trouble
waiting to be solved

you took so long to pop up
at the agreed time and place
i was always the first to be there

but when your smile breezed in
i was always in heaven
when you hold my hands
and heard you spoke, “Let’s go now”

Midnights…

an empty room
swaying in outer space

a glass wall
where teardrops spill off

a candle lights up
in solitary gloom

how could i break away

from these sensation and restive insights
and fall prey to a judgment
done in midnights…
