If…

a poem by

If you hear a humming in your solitude,
through the silence

A feather touch in the nape of your mind
which tickles your heart

If, you could not forget something and
remember that too, which is sweet

If you are woken up by a melodious call
which you cannot recall

If you feel that flowers around you are more
colourful and bloom more radiantly than ever

And the breeze spread around the fragrance
with abundant enthusiasm

If you are looking forward to someone
you know will not come

And your days become longer and
night shorter

If the tick of the rain drops reminds you
of a mesmerising rhythm

If you want to dance in the rain when the
sweet fragrance of wet soil take you to a new world

If you smile often and cheer up without any reason
and a sweet melody dance around your lips…

Then you are in Love !

Forms of Love

a poem by

Love towards God is Faith
Love towards Motherland is Patriotism
Love towards Parents is Affection
Love towards Family is Responsibility
Love towards Society is Humanity
Love towards Elders is Respect
Love towards Youngsters is a Blessing
Love towards One’s one duty is Devotion
Love towards Work is Excitement
Love towards Achievement is Ability
Love towards a Friend is Friendship
Love towards an Enemy is Enemity
Love towards Nature is its Conservation
Love towards Love is Sacrifice
Love towards Life is Satisfaction
But Life towards Love is Marvellous
All these makes man’s Prosperous life
In fact, there is no true love
As love itself is true…

The Bride

a poem by

The night was full of expectation and joy,
like any other bride, tense and touchy.
Trembling with anxiety and happiness.

The night was fragrant
Her friends spread out bouquets of
flowers which carried a heavenly scent
around, the aroma of love.

The night was ready to welcome her lover
The birds sang a touching melody
The winds danced, and the clouds
flushed out the light.

The night was terrified to see her
lover coming and she started melting
in the glory of her lover,
Soon she dissolved in the aura.

The night was happy to merge into
her lover… the dawn.

Wished

a poem by

The rhythm of the wind
The clap of the rain
The whistle of the breeze and
The dance of the leaves

The sway of the clouds
The shy of the moon
The shock of the stars and
The songs of the night

The touch of your finger
The turn of your brows
The curve of your lips and
The light in your eyes

The scent of your soul
The sweet of your thoughts
The warmth of your breath and
The pearls in your smile

Takes me to a different world
Where there are no words…

The Angel

a poem by

The Angel
Do I love you?
NO
I adore you…
You are the keynote of my life
The core of my existence
An inseparable facet of my soul
Your hues
Have created beautiful paintings in my world
The paintings of ecstasy
Of supreme bliss
I always longed for someone
To fill up the void
To charm me with her joviality
To enthuse me with positivity
To imbibe me with hope
To envisage the script of my life
And I have got you
You
The ineffable damsel
With beauty that soothes
With a heart that exhibits fathomless simplicity
With disposition which is divine
With voice that infuses melody
The ultimate life-partner
Which I always yearned for…
Thank you my Gauri
For mingling myself with you…

Chrysanthemums

a poem by

We were brought up
By the rule book
That spelt love for us daughters
As immoral, infidel,
Masked, contagious
Dreams were cached
Within constrained confines
The self remained dwarfed-
Bonsai like
Unable to reach beyond its grasp
But a moment of wild defiance
Unleashed a tempestuous will
To self-expression
I followed love’s trail
Scanning the horizon of darkness
To arrive at the moonlit patch
Of a perplexed night-
A night that witnessed
Love’s intimate dance
In the sensual celebration of
Intimacy between
Soul, mind and body

With the first footfall of dawn
I tore all pages
Of the book of norms
Made paper-flowers out of them
This morning they have metamorphosed
Into golden-orange chrysanthemums.

Oh Zephyr

a poem by

Oh Zephyr
As a merciful favour
To an awaiting soul
Drift this luscious savour
To half of my whole

Sundered by distance
Yet blended through hearts
Longing this fragrance
He is, on other end of world

Together, we rooted
These roses of amor
Please whisper my ardour
As you deliver its scent

Alone and away from home
Can you carry him hope
That the roses still bloom
So does our love

Oh Zephyr
As a merciful favour
To an awaiting soul
Drift this luscious savour
To half of my whole

What’s Love?

a poem by

Love just a feeling?
Or merely an illusion?

Love a path to soul searching?
Or merely a customary obligation of reproduction?

Love an attraction of opposite poles?
Or there lies some inborn connection?

But one day he found something quite unusual,
Same pole attracting each other…

But one day he found it doesn’t fall
in line of natural cycle of reproduction.

But one day he found his ward is not
what he/she has supposed to be, he/she really is…

And it is not so easy to even comment
on this critical situation?

How could he/she do this?
He angered at their decision of mate selection?

Is it right or wrong to act and love who you really love?
Is it wise or foolishness to turn into completely different?

Is it excess of freedom to behave in that way?
Is it justified to become Gay or lesbian?

He asked!
He shouted!

He cried!
He feared what the society will think of them…

He thought
and thought

and thought
again and again.

But at the end of day,
They are still his children…

But at the end of day,
it’s all their decision…

But at the end of day,
it’s all about loving deeply someone…

But at the end of the day,
Love is not to be confined in
certain fixed boundary and definition…
And then he smiled and respected his/her decision.

You and I

a poem by

Brown wooden table
The hunchback of Notre Dame
Sun rays entered the glass window
Brightly shining and then blistering,
Angry with a turbulence unknown before
We fought, you and I,
And then, after we threw our phones
In our minds imagination
We reasoned we patched up
You and I
Green wooden table
Sun rays gliding through the glass window
Resplendently shining
Now with a subtle calm
With a serenity unknown
You and I

Your Feminity

a poem by

Feminity for me
Was discovering you
When I took you for a ride
On my Bajaj Discover

Charming for me
Was talking to you
When you would call me
And I would call you
And we would talk
Till 3:00 am in the morning

Love for me is you
When I get blazingly angry
Almost raging like a mad bull
And you calm me down
With your patience and grace

Weather Blues II

a poem by

Tis is the weather for lovers
Of surreptitious glances
Hasty meetings
And secret dreams

Tis the weather for hot corn by the roadside
Of shared tea and much more
Two pairs of happy eyes dancing in the rain

Tis the weather for lovebirds
Hands lingering, lips quivering
Hearts leaping, dreaming of heaven on earth

Tis the weather for monsoon love
Drenched clothes and treacherous umbrellas
But not more than the pounding heart –
Drenched in mad passion and sinful desires

Tis the weather for togetherness
Of wild spirits and unconditional love
Of promises made and trust kindled

Tis indeed the weather to all the hues in a mundane day
To seek meaning where none exists
To be kinder than kindness itself
To be engulfed in the warmth and spread it further
And to finally be at home with someone!

Love Kills

a poem by

Walking on the lonely road
The other side of paradise
Just like a hurricane-
She shook me.

Every single breath
From my soul
Doesn’t know where to go-
Lost in her thoughts.

Flying without wings
A trip to heaven
I was falling in love-
In the twinkling of an eye.

Breathing fine
But out of my mind
Magical mystery
To let my feelings go.

Never knew, love
Could be this sweet
But, this love kills
Oh my god! What a way to die.

Ice and Fire

a poem by

His words.
Sardonic, Sharp and Stabbing
Replaced the austere, fragrant garlands of letters
That adorned his speech, felicitating me with the love he claimed he had.
For two months he waltzed me around the dark ballroom of lies
Until the day came and he stood there, hands clutching my hair shameless and merciless
And pushed my naive face into a bucket of ice and water
Letting the truth of life and the depth of his betrayal
Scar and Bruise me until the end of time.

We were like two pebbles from the same stone,
Both rough, jagged and deformed by the merciless beatings of our past
We rubbed onto each other, at a time, when each where knocked out cold
Alone in the frigid, glacial interiors of a dungeon called life.
We collided hard and fast, trying to share the pain and keep warm
From the cold, calculating breezes of pain and isolation.
A spark ignited between us, marking the end of the whippings of torture.
We let go of our chains, wrapping our arms tight together,
As the spark swiftly consummated with the oxygen, giving birth
To a child so fierce, so driven, as fueled as fire,
Melting the glaciers and warming up the frigid winds,
And burning out the wounds and lacerations of a time less pleasant,
Wrapping us into it’s talons, vowing to be our knight in shining armour:
A Knight we named Love.

Lovers turning strangers

a poem by

It was all normal
Going in the flow
I was holding tight
All the pieces of mine
Hole of my heart
I bandaid it tight…
And then I saw you
Yes! I saw you
And the sadness of your face
I know you want me
To stop, to run, to meet you
You badly need to hear, love you too.
I too wanna run and hug you tight
My heart was racing you weren’t meeting eyes..
But I have to go away
Away from you.
Its not same anymore
At least in the real world we are apart but not in my heart…
Yes its the same, you and me together, our love is enriched and nurtured in my mind.
But the one in my heart isn’t same as in real…
No you aren’t the same, not the one I loved…
Its like your twin substitute is fooling the world…
Sitting in the class
Like a zombie
My mind still debating
Whether I would have stopped
Or moving away was right?
But how does it matter..
When its all over. Egos have drained the love out…
Hatred has built a wall between us
And tears are far gone
The care has far gone.
So its live like strangers with love engraved deep in heart.
I miss you
I love you
But we have to live apart…
