    When you came in close
    You would fit perfectly under my chin
    Your scent filled my nostrils
    My olfactory bulb lit up brighter than the sun
    I knew this was a moment I would remember forever.
    When our hands interlocked - They didn’t fit just right.
    I should have ignored this but I loosened my grip
    I wanted things to be perfect - I was chasing a fantasy.
    With your strength and courage
    You called me out
    I was speechless but impressed
    Scared and confused.
    At that moment, I knew I loved you
    But you knew that, this was the end
    A red flag flown
    Leaving me with a memory
    Forever carved in stone

    I sit here on the eve of the end of a decade. My decade. It’s hot. A sticky British summertime night.
    I find myself stewing in a sense of melancholy. I’m almost in a state of mourning. The last ten years laid out behind me like a mosaic, pieced together by someone unskilled and with unsteady hands. The mapping of highs, lows and fuck ups.
    As the time ticks closer to midnight, I’m starting to realise that not much will physically change. I’m still the bag of bones without a large intestine that I was at the start of the decade. Though slightly more weathered and much more self-aware.
    But still, time marches on. Unhindered by my psyche. A clear, undisturbed path in front of me. Perhaps I can learn new skills, steady my hand. Be more mindful of my choices as I push forward into the unknown. I haven’t a clue what’s in store but then again, have I ever known? Are things mapped out by some higher power or am I a product of my experiences and decisions? Some of which, I hope to leave behind. I’ve been carrying a lot of them for far too long and my back is starting to hurt - old age I reckon.
    When the clock hits midnight. There will be silence. There will be no fireworks. No celebrations and the popping of champagne. Maybe I’ll hear a car pass by my window.
    But in that silence, there will be a moment of realisation. A strange germination as I start to grow into this next phase of my life. For me, it feels huge, though you could never tell. I want the moment wash over every inch. I want to bathe in it like I’m bathing in my sweat from this hot, sticky British summer night.

    @writersnetwork Thank you so much for the repost! It was unexpected and so, so heart touching ��✨

    SKY GAZING (reversed)


    This is the heartbroken Sky
    Hurts mellowed over time
    Her thoughts are heavy
    Her songs no longer rhyme
    Because each word is pain
    Each stanza a callous crime
    For every life that leaves earth
    At the cusp of life’s prime

    Prayers by the dozen
    Rise from halls down below
    Empty temples, mosques, churches
    Cry the same note of woe
    At the foot of the mass grave
    Under the wail of a lone crow
    A thousand souls writhe
    Clawing at life’s closed doors

    Mute silhouettes in masks
    Watch the funeral pyres burn
    The Sky watches them too
    As the dwindling flames churn
    Cold teardrops of rain
    A gale upon the ship’s stern
    The Sky ushers the shipwreck
    To welcome the decade’s turn

    And what a wonderful decade
    The Sky bitterly thinks
    Starving empty bellies
    Elsewhere decadence stinks
    Countless men and women forced
    In to standard blues and pinks
    Another woman sells her body
    While the ceiling light winks

    Elsewhere on the globe
    The Sky herself is on flame
    Though she tries her best
    Hatred is hard to tame
    Missiles fly over borders
    For some, it’s just another game
    But on each side of the boundary
    The colour of blood is the same

    The Sky is being poisoned
    The noxious gases blur her sight
    Her ice caps have melted
    Where they once gleamed white
    Down below they dance
    Drunk and coked-up all night
    But still, the Sky will bloom tomorrow
    Her pure blue hopes so bright

    Unrequited love ,
    Time doesn't matter .

    It been few years since i waited,
    I hoped to catch a glimpsed of a snow.
    Aswell i remember the snowfall after years,
    That day i saw him for the first time.
    I think i was a fool back then,
    I just like him at the first sight.
    I know that fairy tail doesn't exist,
    Still feel like i was somewhat princess.
    My unrequited love started since that day ,
    I was upset that I didn't know where he was .
    Few days later he camed my home,
    I was shocked aswell happy.
    I once thought, that it was density.
    On my 1⁸teen i was in love,
    With my childhood sweetheart.
    He camed to meet me after a decade,
    I didn't knew that i should talk or stay quiet .
    I was kinda nervous that time ,
    We ressembled our memories again .
    the one who made me cry back then,
    He is the one who makes me smile now .
    Our moments that will stay with me forever ,
    He didn't believe in making promises.
    But still he kept his promise ,
    that he will met me at my 1⁸teen .
    We literally chat for hours ,
    He said that he will leave tomorrow.
    I asked that I will take him out ,
    We were walking in the streets.
    Nabil arise and we again made a promise,
    That we will meet again.
    It been few years since I'm wating,
    In with him forever.

    It's not about the New year, it's all about a New decade

    Just remember how we were before 10 years ago
    without Android mobiles but with the people I mean in real.
    Without PUBG but with more option to play in real.
    Without responsibilities i guess but here we are now Atleast trying save something.
    Without Heartache, well now i don't need to say what we going through.
    Then i see no one was selfish but now i doubt the person whom i known long time too.
    The people we had might not be now in our life yet, we figured out how to go through it.
    But the most weird thing is here we are with very big HOPE upcoming year might not be damn like this yet, we are made through one hell of a year so Cheers to that everyone who is still alive and reading this!

    Happy New Year in Advance!.

    just to be sent ???????

    hope, upcoming time,
    is happily spent ........
    and your dreams,,
    never get dent !!!!!!

    Forgetting pains,
    and how 2020 went ........
    Let's train our mind,
    increase its strength !!!!!!

    Doesn't make sense,
    if you are simply content.....
    something with which,
    its a difficult month end !!!!!!

    Nothing ever happens,
    without your consent ......
    this year has been tough,
    let's mark it absent !!!!!!!!

    Businesses collapsed,
    Employees are tensed......
    the virus simply broke,
    everyone's defense !!!!!!

    Suspect our Lord,
    didn't clean his lens......
    It spread so fast,
    was so intense !!!!!!!!!

    What's there next,
    is still a suspense.......
    but let's prepare ourselves,
    at our own expense !!!!!!

    "On the warmth of the glazing sands,
    My sight was stuck at the currents.,

    That feel was divine, as it was!
    Felt like the timepiece got a pause,

    My feet was like an immortal art,
    As it doesn't felt the heat apart,

    The silence got disturbed by the aquatic sounds,
    That was the place where, the dream were found,

    Apart-and-far the sight moved in a desperate search,
    But the search was incomplete, as it vanished into the siege of purge,

    The clouds started at me, and got the same stare back,
    The rains were missing, from the cloud sack,

    Incomplete thunders were in their sung,
    With a little pomp and a big light,
    That sparkled the below tide,

    The last hope was a bit cherish,
    But might be, it was my time to sleep in perish

    Goodbye

    A decade ago
    You left me here
    And I am still
    Waiting for the chance
    To meet you again
    It's not that I miss you
    Neither I am sad
    And its nor about
    Starting all over again
    Its just that
    I am indebted
    I owe you a goodbye
    That I didn't say!

    A decade dawns
    And with it the freedom

    That’s only ever been
    paper deep.

    Human race

    The blood in my eyes
    So pure like the flaws in my heart
    The beasts of the Romans
    Tell them I'm only a human
    Even with the blind destination like the Son of no man

    Born with the Sun and still die with it
    And the sound of wars?, we don't sleep on it
    Be on guard, what the tortures of life is here to remind us

    Their music we dance to not like we don't have a choice
    Fate" I'm all yours like the love of my life
    Survival is golden even though the existence was paid for

    A Decade - Oliver Lyngdoh

    Welcome!
    Welcome to a society of make believes,
    A world where no matter how much you give,
    No matter how much you sacrifice,
    Would never suffice.
    A society of followers,
    A world run on paper coined for profit;
    Forever ruling and turning civilization as we all call it.
    Where love is regulated to one's who can give,
    But when the tide turns against it,
    It becomes contractual-Just like everything else
    (Read Temporary)

    Welcome to life as we know it!
    Fleeting away with much to do,
    Time-a spin around the sun,
    A new fad, a new trend-
    Hashtag this, Hashtag that!
    Nothing permanent...
    No matter the sacrifice,
    No matter the thought,
    No matter how you feel,
    No matter the circumstances.

    Because Coin-
    The world runs on coin,
    No relationship is important,
    No life not worth choosing,
    No lie not worth telling,
    Honesty with a twist of the truth-
    To get things done.
    Welcome then to society as we shaped it!
    Welcome to a new decade!

    Happy New Year

    Another year,
    Another decade
    Nothing will change much though 
    Except for the date

    Students will join hands,
    Chant slogans loud,
    Marchers will form more groups 
    but police will separate them out

    One set will say this is wrong,
    The other might stand by
    We will still wait for the thing to go right
    And like always the government will sit 
          With one shut-eye 

    Another year,
    Another decade
    Nothing will change much though 
    Except for the date

    Prices will rise,
    Politicians will spread another lie,
    Employment will go down
    but hopes will not stop to fly

    Protestors will get divided,
    They might even multiply,
    Farmers will commit suicide
    Media will plant a new story
        and thereby everything will nullify

    Another year,
    Another decade
    Nothing will change much though 
    Except for the date

    A girl child will be killed
    Another will face rape
    and then we will know, someday
    the accused was encountered
        while he tried to escape 

    Scarcity of water will become the headline,
    Pollution will get all-time high,
    and then a new gimmick by the government
    will shift the attention, with a grin sly

    Another year,
    Another decade
    Nothing will change much though 
    Except for the date

    A Decade I Saw

    I wrote this today
    I was feeling this way
    I am saddened
    Manuel jnr. writes...
    And will be for many decades

    In a single decade
    Millions of laws have been made
    Trillions of chickens have been laid
    So many farewells have been bade
    Trillion of salaries have been paid
    Millions of churches and different believes
    False prophets, wicked leaders
    Have you ever seen a mermaid?
    You walk around places still afraid

    We witness the joys of bridesmaids
    And experience the light and its shade
    While the farmers no longer need hoes and spades
    There is a technological blockade as human values degrade

    In a single decade
    Have we made progress as a human race?
    We still have to tie our shoe lace
    And walk around with a slow or fast pace
    We have still not learnt to fly
    But for real, we still continue to cry!
    And fight for decades to make centuries

    ഇരവിന്റെ കുളിർകാറ്റിരമ്പലിൽ
    പ്രിയതുകളുടെ പ്രണയനിലാവൊളി
    കാത്തു ഈറൻ മുടിവിരിച്ചിട്ട്
    കൺപീലി കോണുകളിലെ നനവിന്റെ
    ആർദ്രത യെ വായിച്ചവസാനിപ്പിച്ച
    കാല്പനികതയിലെ വിഷാദത്തിനു
    മാറ്റി വച്ച്, വിരഹ വേദനയുടെ
    നീരിറക്കത്തിലെ പ്രണയകവിത
    ഉരുവിടുന്ന ചുണ്ടുകളെ ചെറു
    ചിരിയാലുണർത്തി, കൈ വിരൽ
    തലോടലേറ്റ നന്ത്യാർ വട്ട ചെടികളെ
    തനുവിന്റെ ചൂടൊലുന്ന മിഴികളോട്
    ചേർത്ത്, പൂത്തുലഞ്ഞ
    വാകചോപ്പിന്റെ വേനലുകൾ
    വിയർത്തൊട്ടിയ കഴുത്തിലെ
    മുടിയിഴകൾക്കു നൽകി,
    ക്ലാവുപിടിച്ച സന്ധ്യയുടെ
    മണവും ഉള്ളിലിരമ്പുന്ന മഴക്കാറിന്റെ
    കനവുമറിഞ്ഞ്, തകർന്നടിഞ്ഞ
    കഷ്ങ്ങളെ ചേർത്തു പിടിച്ചോടി
    പുതുമഴയിൽ വീണ ആലിപഴ
    ങ്ങളെടുത്തുള്ളിലെ കനലിന്റെ
    തികട്ടലുകളെ തളർത്തി, പിന്നെ
    ഋതുമാസ മഞ്ഞിൻ പുലരിയിലേ
    ഇലത്തണ്ടിൻ മേലിറ്റുവീണ തുള്ളിയെ
    പുൽകി, ഒ ടുവിൽ
    ഓരോ പാദസരകിലുക്കവും വിരസ
    മില്ലാതെ ആവർത്തിക്കുന്ന തൊക്കെയും
    ഞാൻമാത്രം നടന്ന വഴികൾ എന്നറിഞ്ഞ്
    എന്റേതുമാത്രമായ വരാന്തയിലെവിടെയോ
    എന്റേതു മാത്രമായ ചിന്തകളിലെവിടെയോ
    എന്റേതുമാത്രമായ എന്നിലേക്ക്........
