Dreams

Died Not Dead

How does an ocean of love
Evaporate
And leave behind a desert?
Those precious nights, those pure moments
When two souls collided in love
A mesmerizing explosion, a supernova
How can they leave behind nothing but a vacuum,
A black hole in your chest?

A Shot At The Sky

You might be right,
I might be taking a foolish risk.
I might be wrong to think I can win
In a game, many have lost their sanity in.
But some did win, didn’t they?
A very few, I Know, and I seem nothing like
I was born to be amongst a special few
But how will we know if I don’t even try,
If you don’t jump you will never fly.
All I ask is don’t deny me the right to try,
All I want is a shot at it,
A shot at the sky.

Dreams Depreciate

 

I went to the pawnshop
Offered my dreams as collateral
Pawnbroker showed no interest.

I tried to tell him that they were
Perfectly good dreams,
They could give really good returns
To someone who can pursue them,
I am just not in that place right now
Surely he could offer a decent value against them,
I am good for it!

Sting Of Time

You stub your toe
Running into wrong doors
In dark alleys between
Choices made and fate,
And it stings.

Wondering for days
What you did wrong
Is just as ludicrous
As asking “why?” from fate.
Very often there is no
Answer to find.
It was chance
doing it’s dirty dance. Continue reading “Sting Of Time”

In My Dreams, It’s Sunny Again

dsc_0619_11080910250_1_by_torobala-d5rbr6y

 

Eyelids so heavy from the weight of air,
Air that’s getting too heavy to breathe.
I swallow hard a lump in my throat,
And let my eyelids fall to meet my bottom lashes,
I expected peace but there was more chaos.

Paint Yourself Anew

surrender

 

You don’t have to be today,
Whoever you thought you were yesterday.
The painting you started last night,
Doesn’t have to end how you thought it might,
It can go in any direction you desire,
You are new today, you are new every hour.

Dying Wildflower

He plucked the flower for himself,
And he was so happy to have it,
But then it started dying,
Day by day, petal by petal
He watched it turn to dust with an aching heart.

Look What The Fools Did

Up_Jonathan_Frappe

They heard some legends of it,

Some folk songs, Some tribal tales of it.

Foolish they were, they confused it with reality,

They had dreams, they didn’t care for actuality.

They were not kids anymore,

It was not cute anymore.

Beyond Qualm And Confidence

tumblr_nqlwgrHvUJ1t9762so1_500

As she walked with confident steps
Towards the life she wanted,
Looking poised and prepared to the world,
Her mind was cluttered with muddled thoughts.
A gradual qualm had taken over her,
Does the end always justify the means?
She visioned it happening differently,
And what if the life she wanted
Is not really the life that is good for her?
