A love affair !


Who was she?
just a girl in love
waiting every day for the night,
when all is quiet
for it would bring him closer to her.

He is so close, yet so far away
She would patiently wait for him
everyday, in the hope of
an eternal union;
that beautiful moment,
when she would be near him
to hold him closer to her heart.

Those one sided conversations,
would finally end,
they would speak and listen,
to the stories they had to tell each other,
and those lonely thoughts will no longer be alone
for the reverie will finally unite with her moon.

Waiting !




This distance between you and I,

feels like light years apart,

yet so close,

with every passing beat of the heart.

beyond the barrier of this opaque wall,

my eyes can see you not,

and if I call your name,

you would not hear my voice.

Despite the age and day of digital, that it is

you and I, deprived of mode of interactions,

hope being a medium beyond any interceptions,

only carried us, all along, so far.

and I count my days waiting for you,

looking forward to the day

to finally see you,

while meeting you.

under this very starlit sky,

where this moon will witness,

a reunion unseen ever before.

Alter ego !



Laying down on the ground,

in the darkest hour of night.

while the winds too are asleep,

I mourn the loss,

loss of a dream.


I gaze at the sky above me,

jewelled with twinkling stars,

bringing life to the lifeless.

And the moon,

never in solitary,

even on the days, when,

it chooses to remain concealed,

they wait for it patiently,

to re-appear,

Just so they remain,

the perfect companions.

of all times.


Its surreal,

soothing my wounded heart,

for it secretly finds the company,

of the shining light of the night sky,

shedding radiance on its darkness,

guarding it with a beautiful,

white light of hope.

A combination!



There is a man, somewhere, may be I know where, at my side of the globe.

who at this time, might be thinking about me, as I am writing.

The fragrance of jasmine, reminds me of him.

We are miles apart, pulled away in our circumstantial helplessness,

yet, our hearts forbid to detangle.

I am angry, I am hurt, I am disappointed, I am sad,

yet, my soul just seek his well-being,

and I know, he seeks just my happiness.

I am a pessimist and he is hopelessly an optimist

A weird combination, just like the two poles.

And just like they say, opposite attracts. We do too.

He is words, I’m emotions,

the two elements that make the best poetry.

And we are here, trying to make one, as best as we can.

He is the only one who knows how I like my coffee,

I’m the one who knows how he takes his tea.

Tea and coffee, trying to understand each other’s flavour.

Dawn and dusk; sunshine and moonlight; white and black,

Trying to bring the best in each other.

A combination of optimism and pessimism we are,

hopelessly in love with each other.

Do you know!

holding hand friend love close (21)

What is it that I wish for, I don’t know whether you know.

Whether I wish for the stars, or those eyes which shine just right.

Do I wish for the wedding-ring embracing my finger, giving the perfect glow?

Or is it my home, that I have found in you, making all the chaos quite.

Beginning my mornings with your smile, is that what is on the list?

Or ending the day with your warmth, wrapped like we coexist.

Standing by you through the difficult times, is that what I probably want?

Or maybe it is in every possible emotion, of which I want to be a part of.


I am what I am for I know you are,

I don’t know whether you know that it is you that I wish for.



Sky Lantern



Beginning the day yesterday with a gloom, I was at my lowest ebb.

Thinking about the negativities and the never ending struggles.

The mood in general was bathed with sadness, and helplessness.

Yet, as every single day, yesterday too was meant to begin and pass.

Not in my rarest thoughts, would have I thought what yesterday was about to bring to me.


The sunlight was bright, in the winter afternoon, soothing the skin.

My eyes were wandering towards the infinity of nowhere

It was then, I caught a glimpse of my cynosure.

In a single second, my cheeks flushed, my dead eyes got brightened, and my soul danced its happiest dance.

The moment felt like my body started receiving the needed oxygen supply, I felt like living, I felt like shouting, I felt like dancing. I was overjoyed, a feeling I sensed after a really long time.


In the evening following that, the sky was filled with lanterns illuminating it.

I looked up, and in that instance I knew you were there too somewhere near, admiring its beauty just like I was.

The feeling of abandonment surpassed and as those lanterns filled the sky with grace and luminescence, my heart filled with the feeling of togetherness, a feeling of joy, a feeling of being near to you.
