Sunkissed Soul

‘Who am I?’

Serenity being nature’s demeanor,

yonder stands a tree on a poised hill,

shadowing the sorrows of life that lies below

the clear sky and above the crystal sea,

symbolizing the truth beyond naked eyes,

so I sit beneath it with closed eyes, 

listening to earthly aroma

gifted by the muted breeze

that comes uninvitedly and

brushes a strand of my hair,

it feels like the caresses from God,

and it feels like home.

Well Played

Our story began smoothly with a ‘hai’.

I was writing it.

The first few chapters were heart throbbing.

Words were inspired by him.

Secrets started to spill.

The Chapters started to get filled with passion.

And the story urged with heat.

Fate wrote the lines to destiny.

The destiny I had wished for us.

I was wrong.

I realized the last chapter was already written.

He was already in his “happily ever after”.

He was the author and I was just a pawn.

Rejection

It was the first time.

The first time I got rejected.

Unexpected, it broke me apart.

It felt like a thousand stones weighing

down my heart.

She said no.

Even though she knew

it was my favourite choclate bar.

Transition

My Strength & Weakness

You are my weakness, my love.


We dwell in different bodies.


And our separation petrifies me.


Aches my heart when you are in pain.


Tearing apart making me insane.


Yet I am sane when you’re nigh.


As long as you’re safe, I feel fine.


Our closeness pampers me.


Because my soul resides in you,


yours in mine.


And I realize my strength is you,


my love.

Feelings….

The times the flower bloomed

its aroma remained unrecognisable,

For she never knew the essence of true love

After years when she searched for the one,


it was long gone and it became a symbolism of lost love.

And she regretted when she realised that she was actually and still is in love with him.

She waited for the never ending unrequited love to be answered,

She waited in hopes to hear the answer from him….

An Eternal Love Story

I was in his hands,they were soft.
I held his hands and took first steps.
I played with his hands.
They tickled me.
They beat me.
They caressed me.
With time, it changed.
They put mine into another.
At that moment they were calloused.
Now holding his within mine
They were wrinkled.
Cherishing the memories
I shared with him.
I held his, longing to hold it forever.


The Change

The sky turned from


crystal clear to pink


pink to yellow


yellow to grey.


It changed its colour.


It changed its attire.


All the while, it was


Mirrored by lakes


Reflected by my mind.


Echoed by my emotions.

Reality

I opened my eyes.
Couldn’t adjust  the light
They closed.
the warm hands of sun
paced through the pores
and panes
and touched my skin
it was so bracing.
like a mother.

I got tickled
by the cold breeze
that brushed past
my hair as if it
wants to play with me
like a friend.

I felt loved by
sweet chirping of birds.
they sang a lullaby
and kissed me to
an alluring day.
like a lover.

But it all lasted for a sec.
They were shadowed
by tumultuous clouds
whose tears plummeted
Deep into my heart
it was abysmal
like loneliness .

I felt like a dross .
A day passed
and I realized all of it
was within me
It was just my fractious mind
it was just my mind.
just an illusion.
