Books and pages seemed like a no man’s land,
Letters written, wiped off on the sand,
Words framed into voyage of mirage,
Still the quest to conquer the soul,
Unfulfilled like a mountain sage. .
Searched on the busy streets,
Passed by a lethal retreat,
Strolling near the calm lakes,
On farms using sharp rakes,
Still the quest, remained silent.
Autumn ends and winters marched,
Standing and starring to the leaves that parched,
Dawning sun to the Twilight dusk,
Ashen shaded, shining mammoth ivory tusk,
Standing tall to the gateway of Shrine,
Guarded by the loyal huge canine.
Thirst of the quest was growing by,
Like an ocean shimmering in the night,
To the the silvery shine moonlight.
The burning desire to quench my Thirst,
To enlighten the soul approving first.
Sneaking through the window pane,
To the hustle and bustle down the lane,
Sipping the hot vapoury coffee,
Thoughts clinging and flustered,
An unanticipated affair connected my eyes,
Luminous smile flickered on face.
Seeing the homeless snuggled in sleep,
And Giving shelter To the mongrel,
in the dark cold night for his survival.
Grateful to the mankind,
Still exist in the world of hypocrisy,
Words left standby and,
The quest of the writer finally accomplished.

In life there are plenty you will meet,
By the riverside, on a flight or down the street.
There’s a reason why we collide,
Strange is this journey as we stride.
Some will drain, hurt, stab and test.
Others will enrich, heal and not use you like the rest.
When you begin,
With the one within.
You will see,
A subtle alchemy…
Adding meaning to your life tapestry,
This kind of connect is with few,
Follows no rule, old or new!

Somehow, with the billions of people we met
I saw you, you saw me
And we knew
All of each other’s fears and flaws
All of our random thoughts
We shared the same heartbeat
Surfed on the same brain waves
Whatever happens, meeting you is something I’ll never regret

What is there to read?
The numbness of feeling is strong
Even with the emotional cuts
There’s no pain only to bleed
Judgement and loneliness are staring me in the face
Complete loss of control
Disconnection is the only way
To be able to connect in another place
Completely aware of everything in my sight
I have no awareness to my pain
Some awareness to the damage done
It’s the disconnect that keeps up the fight
Things were said
Things were done
It’s what I feel
Not just in my head
Tears don’t wash away intense pain
Tears don’t alleviate emotional tension
They remind me that I’m still here
They remind me that maybe I can be sane.
