Radar

Isn’t it beautiful? Every emotion that passes by A moment to recognize You’re still alive. It’s too short, We are often told Live a life without regrets And yet, we question A simple task, to touch To speak, it’s undefined Yet within a simple moment A constrain forever bound. A million moments To break out soul Yet within the swirling dark Resides a clawing creature … Continue reading Radar

Reflection

Reflection She’s treading. In this weave of sparkling Laughter, we walk alongside, Baiting disasters. When the silence Was a melody that wanders The soul of mortals, parched, The company of a few Bequethes the gloom with a spark. On the side, it remains. The cynicist in every word The doubt in each smile, The broken parts Scorched with mellifluous Words. Its the reflection Caught between … Continue reading Reflection

Haze

His eyes were liquid honey Blazing and brimming awake; ‘Twas twilight reflected on his gaze. She stares away, in a daze Instincts clouded and lips locked away, Memories clouded and muddled. This familiar haze…. But, there it stays, The raging storm From a time before dawn. Yet again, the familiar emotions Grips the saint; so silence, Please, let me tame the devil. Let the ugliness … Continue reading Haze

Phoenix

Burning to fly, Rising from the ashes And learning – With each fall, Pleading with the next one To rise. In the darkest Hour, with each twilight Bust into flames And be reborn, More alive Than destiny claims. Poet’s note: Dear reader, have you ever sat in a darkened room and just crying yourself? Hopeless? People say it makes you stronger, eventually. For now, I’ll … Continue reading Phoenix

Discovery

Fill my heart with this feeling That encaptures the broken pieces. I saw the clash of contraries, A melding not mixing Of the light and dark; A powerful symphony. Hollow and content, Wandering till twilight Hoping the answers will suffice. Beautiful, as it wrecks the cynic; What am I to make of existence? Poet’s Note: Have you ever been stuck in crossroads due to simple … Continue reading Discovery

Yearning

Wandering, this summer She spent wavering. This city is a mystery That I cannot fathom; It’s a breath of fresh air And turmoil at heart, It’s like his touch leading you While his mind is afar. A clash of the past and the present, Her mind is yearning While the numbness haunts Her reasoning. Do you roll with it or Do you walk away? Do … Continue reading Yearning

Long poem: Unbridled Spirit

In this mighty grey, She trails behind. Behind her kin, Her friends, Behind the ones. Trying to be better. It is such a slow progress Once, then twice and then some, Breaking spirits as they come. What will you do? Unchained, she limps on; Scrapping wounds, Sweating blood. Trailing behind, ‘Loser’ is the term With which she is defined. Yet, she is unbreakable, No, let … Continue reading Long poem: Unbridled Spirit

Journey

Like the wind blowing Throughout the year, We change our tides, failing And fairing; to never disappear Into the abyss That we, oh so fear. In the darkness within the depths, And the light past the distress, We dance in the rain, Even when gloom remains. Still. We strive; humans so turbulent, Yet we rise, Past the blunders and the beasts That haunt our time. … Continue reading Journey

The Lady

Mood music (Tamil): Enna Solla Pogirai (Meaning: What are you going to say?) from Kandukondain Kandkondain (I have seen, I have seen) A beginning with no end, The tantalizing promise In the midst of this maze, With your words Barricading the space, She’s caught. For now. Forever, the northern wind, Ready to storm away. Wind the flow of time, The lady remains. A soothing lullaby … Continue reading The Lady
