A Note To My Catalyst!

A note to my Catalyst!

I miss you…

I think of you and of all those ecstatic possibilities! 

The scare on my hand itches… I remember you!

The music I listen to, the car, my nail polish, the scare on my hand, the napkins and the apps on my mobile…are suddenly all about you; 

They trigger more thoughts of you! 

Who would have thought souls grow so strongly and deeply fond of each other over a few hours! 

Is it because you are so right or I am very wrong?

I wonder why you, why now and why ever?

Infatuation?? It certainly feels like something further and beyond. 

Isn’t it amazingly puzzling how a single encounter with our catalyst counts for all that matters and leaves us enchanted with sweet remembrance; rich thoughts and most of all a burning desire to be better?

But what do I do… when you don’t know what to do? 

What do I say… when all you need is quiet? 

From where do I start when all you think of is an end? 

Why now… when we aren’t aware of the how?

How can I ever be again; now that I know there’s you?

Some may think it’s sad; while it constantly makes me smile…

Even when I no longer stand my surroundings or can bare those who are dearest to me…

When the seamless is ordinary and the obvious is vague…

When only having met you makes up for all the possibilities I may think of with any other…

When the idea of you is fulfilling than the presence of many…

When the vision of your freeing embrace is only a dreamy moment away from my long tiring attempts of containing my aliferous soul!

And even when all I am left with is this note of thoughts I never get to share with you…

What has been… is gone;
What there is… we know;
And what our coexistence may bring is what I now look forward to… in this life or the next!

On reading through life as a book

On reading through life as a book

How astounding it is to live in a multidimensional world that coincides in its being to encompass millions of beings that coexist with each other, a million journey’s with each one having its own individuality, its narrative of how they survived the storm and sailed their boats in the dreary sea of survival. We stride in our yarns of glim, gloom, sadness and bloom, to rise in the highs of the beauty of abundance and to fall in the lowness of animosity and brevity of failures. To be or not to be, to smile or to frown upon while walking this journey called mortality, is a choice that lies to be made upon, to either loathe in the dreadiness of what was or to forget and move up in the radical acceptance of what is and what is about to be the reality that one forges to be in.

The magnitude of our pain differs in its course of situational stance, yet the gospel truth of every soul destined to have its share of pa

The Voice

I took a look

I took a lookA deep look into my heart,There is this luminous voice,Which makes my heart rejoice

That voice is so loud,Singing across the deaf crowds,It’s beautiful lightPiecing across darkest night.

That voice is unsoiled by hate,In a world knocking hard,On true friendship’s gate;Each time I heard it, I’m glad.Singing with joy to blend.

On Survival

On Survival

The question of existence still haunts me in the silence of the stillness that loneliness brings with it. To be or not to be, to exist in the coexistence of dualistic forces, to dance with the uncertainty or to play it along the periphery, what I hold certain, has always questioned me, bemoaned me. Truth be told, I beheld the cry for help when its absence called in silent whispers around the blanket of dwelling and absconded its abundant presence over me. There is a painting that traces the bits of serenity in my life, the colors that adorn the hues of the almighty run deep through the veins of my soul to find the brevity of pain. I glance at the picture of Lord Krishna, reminiscing the days that passed by. Darkness sets its sterility in the brimming light of today, as the dawn of today paints itself in the colours of the dusk of yesterday. Life in its nuanced presence trods into the specter of transcending timelines. It takes only one fleeting moment to change

The Atrocious Contradiction Of Existence

The Atrocious Contradiction Of Existence

How ironically does existence glare at our agonyDrawing its muse in the hours of our ecstasyBeauty galloping in its stance painfully aloud,The whisper of the mighty sense of self loses its way in the crowd.Humans ought to be the resilient minds,A quest for their identity, a rarity to seek to find,

Life in its rhythmic flair plunges us into the dark sands of dee,To be lost in the land of nothingness is to master the spirit of thee.Wanderlust in its yonder encapsulates the allure of the free,Silence in its whispers creeps in the desolation nobody can see.

Trudging our way on the path unknown,We are all wandering to comfort ourselves with a p

Destiny And Time Tend To Go Hand In Hand

Destiny and time tend to go hand in hand

Destiny and time tend to go hand in hand.When the branches of a tree is cut off in other for it to die,Nothing can stop a naked tree from blooming.It’s just a matter of time

The Lullaby Of Love

The Lullaby Of Love

Lamenting lies smear their presence,In the dreary desert. The desertOf hope in which love has lost its way.I yearn in the sanguine felony of the eternal stream,To bow before the very eyes, to sit and pray.

The solstice of fall befalls warmth in its haling glory,A season of broken vows, that sting humanity in its piercing glance,Setting its fangs deep, the tales of unfulfilled dreams, in gallant themes,Usher their presence in the lament of the looming winter.

Darkness in its plight uproars the silence of desolated cries,In the tribulation of existence, light often loses its stance,Death when it finds you, let it find you alive.Mortality transcends its span, as death lays its icy hands,I don’t fear death, but bemoan the demise of the soul of those,Who embraced the deathbed before death ha
