In the shimmering light of the stars,
and the dance of cloudy sky,
A smile grows bright, eclipsing,
that lonely moon, in all its might.  

As the feet set in motion, the lips;
they talk a story, of life and beyond,
as the waiting eyes still at a moment,
the time begins to lose its pace.

In the chaos that surrounds, a giggle,
A smile, a cheer, it silences it all.
the eyes that add to her enigma,
the fierce self that clouds ‘her’.

A distant dream that the eyes see,
that fire blazing to reach there,
A hidden self, in lotus petals,
unwraps in lilt on a stone bench.

In all her might, she lives, and loves,
and as the nights grow, fleeing sight,
She disappears in the abyss,
leaving her smile behind.

My Theory of Love!

I carry a lot of masks on me day in and day out. I hear people say things about me, mostly good. Too many terms associated with my personality, I’m not gonna talk about a bit of anything that is my superficial mask. I am called intelligent, rational, leader, all those big fancy names everyone wants to hear, but deep down, in the unseen side of me lives a hopeless romantic. I might be exposing a very delicate side of me here, but then, I had promised to write this post to myself a long while back.

As an individual, from the time we grow, understand things, from the very time we come out in the world, we start recognizing people. Ever saw a kid smile at a known face? That. We all develop our own versions of the meaning of love. The way we have experienced love, or not. It’s a highly complicated yet a very simple feeling. Have heard of unconditional love ever? No? Have you ever been with your family or friends, every day of your life, no matter how much you think you hate them? That my friend, is unconditional love. Most of us try to give a hundred different reasons to why they love a particular person, to that I wonder, why not love just for the bloody sake of it? Love because you love to love! 

Might sound a bit weird, but let us see where these words take us. The feeling of love has always surprised me. From the point I ‘loved’ my grandpa dropping me to the bus stop to the point of looking at this someone, where I forget to breathe. I’ve had women in my very tiny lived life, I have women around me now, but taking a dive into that abyss, it’s scary that ever. The base of every relationship I believe is being able to spend time with the person, making them feel wanted for. I do respect that highly. Yet, I fail to do that. 

To be with someone, to belong, and love them, might be the most beautiful feeling ever. But if you can’t match to the tiniest of expectations springing up from this togetherness, it is better off. I would say that is the answer to the question I face often, Why are you single? So dear reader, when I know in the current phase of life, when it is difficult to make time even for lunch, how can I commit a part of life to someone? (Unless, the person can understand this part of life.) So that’s my concise theory. Maybe say just a postulate.    

More to this topic coming soon.

Fear of Love!

On a chilly winter morning,
I write this love ballad
So may you dance and sing,
Celebrate the fear of love!

Solomon sang a while ago,
Love is strong as death
Its jealousy unyielding as the grave,
Who could love such a love?

A feeling no better than this,
Be loved, cared, valued and thought,
And feel the fright for your loved soul,
Who could love such a love?

In the growth of life arises this need,
To belong to someone and reduce to half,
Courage falls weak at this sight,
Who could love such a love?

As the vision travels in times ahead,
A face sparkles, a hand holds you through,
The quest for this soul began in long past,
Tell me! Who could love such a love?

The fright to loose, and be forgotten,
Lingers each day through, killing you,
The emotion is far too complex, too deep.
Who could love such a love?

I fear such a feeling, the emotion,
Exposing my deepest self,
Where love and wrath abode,
Who could love such a love? 

In the paths of the future and past,
Where the memories and visions last,
I search for a reason to still love,
And fall in the fear of this love!
