Sweet Poison

You were the moment that took my breath away; but I can’t ask you to stay.

There’s so much I want to hear; but don’t say those words, you make me weak in my knees even when our eyes meet.

 

You’re the dream I still haven’t woken up from,

the one I see even when I’m awake!

 

You’re the beginning to the end that I can’t handle

You’re poison to me but I want to have you anyway!

Memory Lane

When I’ll look back at my life and see you standing next to me, I’ll know I was loved.

And with a smile, I’ll go back to where it all began and find myself all over again, without you.

I’ll feel the places one more time, and let in what I was then too blinded to find.

I’ll trudge the roads that I once measured by how soon they led to you, till they become the paths that I walk to re-discover myself.

There’ll be a faint remembrance in everything I’ll lay my eyes on;

And a fleeting warmth of your presence in the familiar terrains;

But I won’t stop, till I solve my quest to find the best of me.

Because I know I was loved, and you had a piece of me, but I want to get back all of me.

Scarfs and Scars

I match my scarfs with my attires,

some with colors and some with patterns.

 

Like I do my scars, with my memories

of places that I had dared to tread

where I found strength and a rush in my head

 

Like marks on my body,

that remind me of my journey,

and how worthy of them the destinations can be.

 

Now I match my scarfs with attires I wear;

Some with colors and some with patterns.

Window Glass

I sit and stare

through the window glass.

It’s crystal clear,

except it’s not;

there’s a blurring fog.

 

The eyes try to see something

that I still can’t find.

They wander, like aimless travelers,

on paths, near and far,

that seem to lead

somewhere I’m not.

 

I sit and stare.

I’m right where I always was.

Meandering Mind

My mind sets on its own journey,

swimming depths of oceans, enduring sandstorms in lonesome deserts…

My boisterous mind runs faster than me and goes farther than I reach

It pushes me to gather pace and chase it down the unending space…

And then, almost without warning, it stops to reflect.

It wants to see its darkest shades.

The hues of life have faded over time

but left their imprints on the walls, like an ancient decorated shrine.

Springing back in action, it comes alive;

Only this time..

it strolls in the alleys and lanes that had forgotten the color of daylight

It’s seeking answers that are waiting at the end of the mazes that the mind itself designed!

She

What Meets the Eyes

She blended effortlessly in new surroundings, like smoke bends to the slightest wind;

but the breeze always carried her scent so that she was never lost.

 

Though she drew her own boundaries, she was never trapped;

her wings made sure they weren’t her limitations.

 

When her lips curved into a smile, it was contagious enough to make her sorrows laugh.

Glamorous enough to be noticed, she wished to be seen beyond what eyes could see.

Dreamer

I don’t want you to hold me but touch my soul

Don’t be with me all the time but stay in my thoughts

Don’t tell me all your stories but say the words that move me

Don’t make my decisions for me but influence me

Inspire me, indulge me,

destroy me if that brings me back to life

Run wild with me but hold me back at times

Hurt me, I will heal; ignite that passion in me

Make me feel your presence, not your mortal self

You may think I’m dreamy but I’ll wait till my dreams come true
