    Memories come back & some are like lesson

    It’s a quiet evening
    They greet
    They smile
    Then his phone range
    He blast, abuse & pass a lewd remark
    Her face drops,tear broke & she is scared
    Then her mind silently whispers
    ‘Do you have to know anything more ?’

    The rainy summer afternoons
    And petrichor drenched sweet grass
    The smell of hard bound old novels
    Merlot poured in a wine glass
    The squeaky colourful swing set
    And the rusty slides in the park
    The weed filled gardens that once were
    Painfully frightful in the dark
    The lanes where we would ride our bikes
    Under gulmohars with large orange flowers
    Children leisurely playing hopscotch
    Surrounded by scores of golden showers
    Feeling scared of ghosts on the roof
    Never ever following what was told
    That time where life was carefree
    When friendships mattered more than gold
    Those picnic spots around the fields
    Filled with daisies, jasmines and pear trees
    Chasing colourful butterflies all over
    Running after bugs and bees
    The stories of great wonder that contained
    Magical pixies, fairies and elves
    There is nothing more intoxicating than the
    Things that remind one of their youthful selves

    A long time ago I was involved with my college professor. He was married. He was old. I knew he was separated from his wife for over three decades and he full of life. He used me, abused me emotionally, but loved me in a way I hadn't allowed myself to feel love in a long time. I want to forget my time with him, calling it a mistake. But I don't want to forget everything about that time.

    I want to forget the smell of old age,
    That you emanated from your skin,
    In every lecherous embrace.
    I want to forget but I am afraid,
    That with it will go,
    The aroma of the freshly ground coffee,
    That you made for me despite,
    The hypertension and diabetes,
    Just to see me smile,
    Despite the groping and the bites,
    Despite the shame and the sighs.

    You loved with a love I couldn't reciprocate.
    I was settling for a form of pity, self pity.
    Your wrinkled skin against my tanned one
    Reminded me of everything lacking in me.
    And yet as you pushed me forward,
    Towards a pursuit of excellence,
    Where you found me lacking,
    I wanted to forget all the times
    You laughed at my expense.
    But I am afraid to forget the times,
    When your hugs managed to make me smile.

    (M)memories do cast a dark cloud above, that can follow you for decades.
    (E)everyday that is given to us is a gift, do thank your God for that.
    (M)my days are filled with animosity & guilt associated with memories.
    (O)of course it's all made up in my own damn mind, as my family tries to convince their selves.
    (R)right or wrong they don't give a damn & really never did.
    (I)inner workings of my mind, show me flashes of what was brought upon me.
    (E)eternal life, not many understand that's what could be & is.
    (S)simplicity doesn't come easy folks, if so I wouldn't have such nightmares eating me alive everyday.

    Memories fade through each lifetime. The lessons learned are everlasting.

    Memory of my mother

    Even you are not with me now..,
    I can feel your presence anywhere in the house..,
    I dreamed every night and wake up with a new dream of her..,
    I have tons of memories of you with me but that look doesn't enough..,

    I wish for more I know it makes me greedy.,
    I wish for something which meant to happen never to happen..,
    Without you the place in my life is blank..,
    It's quite often that I keep thinking about you mom but trying to stop my tears to fall..,

    Isn't it quite obvious when we lost someone..,
    But sometimes I crave your scolds too..,
    Even if you had happy moments with me..,
    It makes me somehow sadden.

    Memory...is no ordinary
    We store it...in our gallery
    Each story...in its category
    With no boundary...to its entry
    All the dainty...all the flurry
    Being a binary to our memory, in our gallery.

    The pain which you have given me in love
    That has overpowered my good time with you
    Time spent with you is now killing me all the time.

    I wonder why I was blind, when you entered my life
    I loved you when your heart was broken
    I gathered all your broken pieces and made it once again a whole heart with my love
    In return I am still busy in picking my own broken pieces.

    Now only one feeling is left with me that you were a curse in the form of love
    Which is haunting me from the time you entered in my life.

    When two hearts fall in love they get happiness of two world's
    Look what I got, loneliness for rest of the life in this birth.

    I too had dreamt the life full of love
    I too had a dream of feeling new life taking breath in side me as a symbol of our love
    Look what I got , I became a barren land who is always crying looking at my empty lap and empty hands.

    Your fake love has shattered me in such a way that I didn't trusted anyone else
    I am still living all alone because now I know their is nothing called love.

    You are a curse of my some unknown birth
    Who was following me don't know from how many births
    Now only one thing I know and that is you were a unpleasant memory.
    You are a unpleasant memory
    And you will always be a unpleasant memory for me in this birth.

    " Memories "

    Some memories are too bitter.

    " Bitter memories are like a
    two-edged sword that cuts
    the heart with a single blow from
    both sides. "

    Some feelings always hurt and
    they keep following us till death.

  • jumbledthoughts 23w

    Things left behind

    His timber of voice
    The twinkle in his eyes
    Random chats
    Some happy moments
    Some well spent time
    A city, an institution
    Trust..in others, in my intuitions
    Smile..spontaneous, without reason
    The happy go lucky myself
    The person I was
    The person I could have been

    under the heavy sky
    I write 'bout you.

    You thought you were best of friends
    But with his unrequited actions your misconceptions were rend
    There lies the reason for the unsaid goodbye and the end

    Selective memory?

    Amidst the chaos that is her mind
    She finds those memories every single time
    Without even really trying

    From a mom

    I am proud of the person you have grown into
    I miss when you looked up to me

    I am delighted to see you surrounded by true friends
    I miss when it was just me

    I am thrilled to see you making life decisions
    I miss when you asked me for everything

    I am excited to see you starting a new journey
    I will miss you by me

    You may forge a new path and create
    a new world for yourself
    These loving memories will always be with me

    A fault in our stars

    I think of you
    More often than not
    Telling myself that it will be the last time
    That I would stop
    But whenever I am reminiscing
    There you are again...
    how could I not.
    what you did was unforgivable
    But it was also unforgettable
    It rendered us on different paths
    I sometimes wonder
    If it was our fate
    Or a fault in our stars

    Nostalgic is old you
    The very lovely being
    Now lost somewhere
    Impossible to bring

    Nostalgic is our love
    It was tender and pure
    Now it appears to be a mirage
    To which I will reach never

    Nostalgic is that beautiful relation
    Adored with the eternal commitment
    The commitment of togetherness
    that never got the path of fulfillment

    Nostalgic is those memories
    Left locked inside my heart
    And to those treasured moments
    Feels like we were never apart

    Nostalgic is my mind today
    Reminding that journey of love
    From the roads we walked,
    To the vallyes we drove!
