    Sometimes excess of closeness
    makes one giddy, like
    an ant stuck to a sugary pile
    too heavy to carry.

    And then the heart must turn deaf
    to all cooing and calling, like
    a strict hermit in the dense forest,
    and without a care in the world.

    When you look up with your dreamy eyes,
    I melt like a lavender candle
    knowing not what to say,
    the lava of emotions churning my inside
    make me wonder, "is this how
    everyone becomes a poet?"

    Its been ages since your smile shone in my eyes,
    I wait for your footsteps to soothe my parched soul,
    while you miles away spread light in other's world,
    my sky remains dark, gloomy and make me wonder, "is this how everyone becomes a poet?"

    On the battlefield of time,
    the vultures of guilt and regret circle omniously
    waiting like a new bride for her groom.

    Scattered on the ground are dashed hopes,
    bleeding expectations, and crestfallen remorses
    simply waiting for the endless night.

    My armour is battered and spirit is bruised,
    lips are sealed with clotted blood, it seems
    the Twilight will turn into a dark night.

    Far in the horizon, a tweeny dot arises,
    I might not embrace victory or make friends with glory, but will lie down in the lap of peace
    for eternity.

    Festivals
    lose shine
    when greed outshines.

    Words
    forsake warmth
    for cheaper alternatives.

    Minds
    play games
    to stay sharp.

    Laughter
    adds layers
    of fake make-up.

    Time
    wonders alone
    about repeating history.

    Hearts
    fight on
    for forgotten love.

    The cold warmth of your touch
    betrayed your aloof eyes,
    the bright dark night just sat there
    watching us tend to the dead living love.

    Dear Sky,

    When my favourite colour is sky blue,
    need I say more how much I love you.

    I wish my heart to be as expansive as yours,
    and patience that embraces all with heart.

    Wherever I go, wherever I am, I know for sure
    you are there for me whenever I look up.

    Yours forever,
    Open-eyed dreamer

    The love birds sit on the branches of hope
    singing the songs of lasting happiness,
    deaf to the approaching storm of fate.
    One gust of wind envelopes all in dust,
    the other sends them scurrying away.

    But love is brave, so the birds clung
    to each other under the leaves of prayer,
    losing few feathers of confusion,
    but not the buds of promise of
    staying together in rain and shine.

    Decaying pieces of peace
    are found floating in pools of regret
    without any hope of survival.

    Broken stalks of trust
    lie crushed under the burden of expectations
    without any hope of survival.

    Fungus filled pouches of love
    stay hidden in dark and damp nooks of indifference
    without any hope of survival.

    Our love
    was as sparkling as the champagne,
    as vivid as the rainbow,
    as spontaneous as the unexpected rains,
    everything that screamed impermanence.
    But I latched on with hope in my heart,
    prayer on my lips, and
    one shade of doubt at a time
    without knowing
    the bubbles are to burst.
    You made me feel like a beggar,
    a homeless vagrant,
    a thirsty Bedouin
    denied even one drop of immortality.
    Now all that remain is the ruins of dried love
    clogged in the arteries of melancholy
    while I thought that love would last for ever,
    I was wrong.

    Your smile is a lie
    I fall for everyday
    with wholehearted trust,
    only to realize
    its like the shadow of moon
    that exists but stays hidden
    under the aura of bigger powers.
    Your smile hides the plain truth
    that my lovestruck eyes dont read
    and lets the heart bleed everyday,
    be it full moon or no moon night.
