Lost love

I gape at the ring on my finger for a long time, and then open it with an ache in my heart…..keep it on the table and look at the photo-frame on the buffet……..                                                        A photo of “his and mine”…., ‘looking at each other ,holding hands with a background of a garden……’.                            I stare at it……… 

After a while ……                                            Change it with a new photo of “mine standing alone…… “
 

I recollect how ‘he’ used to protect me in ‘his’ sheltered bosom….                                          How “he” used to caress me in “his” arms…

But I suffocated when “he” did not believe me….. And hence parted…… 

Since then I don’t know what happened to “him”, but my world seems to have lost all the glory of it’s colours……. 

“He” was someone who has burnt my whole world into ashes, but yet the smoke from every single part of my singe is still in love with “him”……………….

Revelation of a truth

During the vacant hours, of a drowsy summer afternoon….                                    I dawdle at the foot of a woody hill, with a brook running close by, a formidable birch tree growing at one end of it……..                                                    The birds chirp continually, but a still deadly silence prevails all around me….

I look at the distant hills, preoccupied with some anguished thoughts….                                  I know ‘it’s all over’…….. With “him”…….

But I still continue to sway in his magic’s…. That hold a spell over my mind, causing me to trod in a constant reverie always……

“Living,  after getting ruined”……is a fact which has enlightened me with a ‘truth’……                                    THAT

Both ‘life’ and ‘love’ can ruin  anybody  more acutely than ‘death’…… 

The fluteĀ 


In your tunes I find my smile…. 

 Like the way the surfs of the ocean beam when the radiances of the sun cavort on their bosom….. 

I search for your tune day and night,        for you have eloped… As I think “it”also might….. 

……………………………………………….

But all of a sudden, one day…..                  On hearing the tune of your flute,            I smile once again…… 

Only to discover that….. 

Your flute has returned…….                                    But your presence does not prevail……. 

Her eyes

She said “I have moved on……. “

She smiled, but the pain flickered through the corner of her eyes….              I don’t know whether she cried or not, but I could perceive her heart ripped apart….. 

In the sap green grass of her mind I knew ‘he’was the first crystal dew on the blades of the grass…… 

Her heart mingled with blood and tears wanted remove the picture of ‘his’ face….        But still behind that urge of hers she wanted to keep ‘him’to herself……. 

Though her specks hid her beautiful large eyes,……………… 

……………..I could see those tears which she had shed…… Where ‘his’image could be sensed………..

Dedicated to my beloved friend…..                                                                    SREYA………..

On the shore

Podiuming by the shore  at a night of autumn….                                                         I watch a flock of birds flying in gay abandon……                                                      The shore is empty and so is my heart……. Frozen blue and pale…..

The wind blows slowly around giving the palm trees no rest…..                            I walk and reach the place where I had written his name on the sand… And had drawn a ‘heart’ beside……. 

But now there I find his name no more and the swathes to be wet….. The surges of the roaring sea had washed his name….. 

Like the way “she” snatched “him” away from me….. 

But a part of the drawn ‘heart’still remains on the sand…..                                Signifying those pleasant memories of him and love for him in my mind…. 

Time passes by and so years have passed….    But I still wait for him…. And a call from divine.. 

Cause “he” is the only ‘one’ and the only ‘love’,……..my lonely soul can feel and always tries to find………
