…did we…

My words, your words

Same thought, same situation

I lived with time, you chased all the time

Here we are older and beautiful

What did we want any way?

The words resonated….

Tears of fears
Fears of separation
Separation displeasing
Displeasing attachments
Attachments impromptu
Impromptu self-defined
Self-defined separations
Separations platitude
Platitude not fears
Fears tear away
Away tears

Not much to say

Nor a look

Just silence.

Mind unconvinced

Empathy shared

Just silence.

A loss irreplaceable

For the soul-mate

Just silence.

I hear her speak

Of life and living on

In silence.

Label me not a criminal

I’m merely an artist

Creating beauty and love

Into life I believe in

From inspirations close to my heart.

 Kill not my voice

I’m merely a dreamer

Weaving stories and grandeur

Into life I imagine

From visualisations I fell in love with.

I don’t wear a mask

Nor do I mask myself

I’m the lover in a journey every time

Of difficult paths, differences and expressions

From generalisations I remain unbound.

Live a Life

Let me live a life.

Hold not my freedom;

I wish to fly away,

Away into the darkness.

You will see me glow;

My light minuscule

But, a lifetime for me.

Let me be….

Alas! she left the firefly;

A rare occurrence in her garden,

To be itself not hers…


That damp night when the world slept

She tried to conquer her fears

Of thunder and lightning

To let her live a life.

I painted a house in red

On my yellow feature wall.

“No, I am safe,”

I call out to my family.

“Worry not, I am fine,”

I speak again to the concerned voices.

“Red, is unconditional love

Symbolic of a binding Christmas;”

I look for togetherness

In a warm or cold home;

“Wish every day of love

In every life filled in happiness.”

The fairly lights in the neighbourhood bright,

I see angels everywhere.

I look again

Where the chorus echoed.

Into the darkness at midnight

Wishing New Year of hope.
