Meaning In Insignificance


star-night-wallpaper-wallpaper-2

I look out into the starry night sky, only to lose myself
The way an audacious wave looses itself in the enormous ocean
Millions of Colossal balls of fire looking like small glimmering spec of dust
What relevance does one have in this vast universe full of giants

I read her words, so Funny!
She said she wanted to be a Bee
“And you?” was her question to me
Got me thinking what will I be

Forever For A Day

My eyes couldn’t rest all night
The dreams didn’t let them
My heart kept longing for you
Sleeping right by your side
Even though you held me close
My heart kept longing for more

Broken Angels

You heard of angels in songs and sonnets
But you don’t believe they exist anymore
Once they did but they are now extinct
World changed, the climate changed
It became Scorching, savage, befitting the demons

What if it’s all just a work of fiction,
What if it’s just a story that I am telling myself,
So I can feel good, so I can feel something.
What if everything I consider real and meaningful
Is something trivial exaggerated by my mind, a soft lie.

Seduced by Sadness

There is a certain beauty in pain

Loss touches us deeper than gain

Sorrow always hits harder than bliss

I see the side of you that is fascinated by pain, sin and self destruction,
I see the darkness lurking on the edges of your mind and I worry.
I also see all this good in you and I see the love you have in your eyes,
And the fear that holds you back, taking leaps only when the fall is short.
I see the dreams that you weave and I see your depleting faith in them,
I see the battles you lose so casually because giving it your best is daunting,
And so I worry.

One Beautiful Night

I held him and he held me, laughing and carefree,
Standing against the soaring waves, afraid of nothing.
We kissed under the blue sky, in middle of an ocean,
On a vacation from life, Somewhere outside of time.
