Wordplay!

Words assume the color of the writer’s ink

as it paints a palette of thoughts

drawing an imagery of multitude emotions.

Words wrap the feelings in a beauteous allure

as they bewitch the mind’s eye

with an altruistic charisma of sensory delight.

Razor sharp words, their caustic mien penetrates deep

shattering the heart into a million shards

burying them beneath a traumatic debris.

With a bold mood into a night of passion

words indulge in a flirtatious tease, raising the tempo

igniting in a tempestuous affair with the reader.

Words pen a riveting edge of the seat thriller

sweat beads trickling down the brow

as eerie tentacles of fear grip the mind.

 Cleansing of sorts, with their sublime temperament

 words lead us on a path of enlightenment

with a perfect prescription of spiritual nirvana.

Words carve intricate curves of lyrical poetry

bring alive the ancient history

script a magnum opus, satiating the literary souls.

Their most powerful facet comes to fore

when they are an impetus to stimulate.

The insipid letters of the alphabet join hands

to inspire an entire nation to rise up for a cause.

Depression!

The sea of people swarming

seem oblivious to my feelings

which swell, inundating my soul.

The tussle continues unabated

my thoughts scream yet,

the deaf ears do not heed

each one, engrossed in their bubble.

My mind plays diabolic games,

I wallow in guilt and self pity.

The unsaid words are imprisoned

within the walls of despondency

refusing to let the ray of light enter

before spiraling  into an emotional abyss.

I write to…

Dawn brings in rays of sunshine and hope, the gift of being alive,

I write to believe in the promise of a new day.

The horizon flirts with the hues, a scarlet splash, a lavender swirl, a deep amethyst,

I write to paint myself anew.

Life’s Failures, learnings are the best teachers,

I write to give wings to my dreams.

With the wandering breeze, across the boundaries,

I write to scatter my thoughts like the dandelion.

Reflect on the life gone by, relive the moments of nostalgia,

I write to walk down the memory lane.

The tempest in the mind wreaks havoc,

I write to rant my anger, frustrations and helplessness.

Buds unfurl delicate petals, a tender dew drop cascades gently,

I write to soak in their intoxicating beauty and scents.

Creamy silkiness, sensational textures, heavenly aromas,

I write to savor this sinful indulgence.

The treasures buried in the belly of the deep oceans, its stormy rage, tranquil demeanor,

I write to sail to the distant shores.

The melancholic din reverberates, the mind wallows in doubts, giving up seems to be an easy option,

I write to navigate the labyrinth of life’s challenges

Lost in the wilderness, trapped by fear of unknown,

I write to hide in the darkness of my shadow.

Dark velvety sky, with the glitterati of stars, sets a perfect stage,

I write to romanticize under the moonlight by the beach.

The emotional storm strikes without a warning, breaking the heart into a million shards,

I write to cleanse the papers with my tears.

The conversations in solitude, to experience the sound of silence,

I write to make my words speak.

The echoes of the divine chants and bells resonate,

I write to feel the vibrations of the cosmic energy.

To laugh my heart out, feel the petrichor, enjoy tiny delights,

I write to express my love, celebrate life and its blessings.

 I write to catharsis my soul…

 

 

The Magic of a Touch

As the rays of the dawn touched life,

it welcomed me with open arms,

nurturing and loving me tenderly!

*

When harsh winds mauled me down,

It pulled me up from the chasm,

showed me the light at the end of the tunnel!

*

The loving embrace of your arms,

ignited in me a passion for life,

creating beautiful memories!

*

As dusk cast its shadow on life,

and the birds flew away,

it infused me with comfort and solace ,

till sleep blanketed me.

*

That is the magic of a “Touch”

It speaks no language,

but yet, is all embracing,

conveying it all with a mere touch!

अनकही बातें – Unspoken Words

unsaid1
IC: http://www.google.com

ख़ामोशी कभी कभी बहुत कुछ कह जाती है

वो अनकही अनसुनी दास्ताँ बयान  कर देती है

एक ऐसी ग़ज़ल की रचना  करती है

जो जाने सिर्फ  दिल और आखों की जुबां

ये नैन तेरी सुंदरता  निहारे सारी रैन

तेरे घने ज़ुल्फो के साये तले

वो खामोश लम्हे प्यार के

कैसे बयान करे हम

तन्हाई में भी एक कशिश है

जब साथ हो, आपका,

हाथो  में हाथ हो

और कुछ अनकही बातों का

Unspoken Words

At times silence speaks volumes

narrates a saga of the unspoken verses

composes a beautiful song

which speaks the language of the heart and eyes

All night my eyes soak in your beauty

In the shade of your lustrous tresses

how can I express

those beautiful moments of silence

There is beauty in solitude too

when I am with you,

hand in hand

along with some unspoken words.

Soul Mate

download (17)

Unconditional and absolute is your fountain of love

With sprinkles of care, warmth and respect

I feel so ecstatic to drown in its perennial flow.

When the skies dress up, to a dull gloomy grey

Your dazzling smile brightens my day

With a splash of rainbow hues.

The magic of your love paints

My heart, a scarlet red

The fragrant colour of which lingers all day long.

Treading the milestones in this journey of life

Metamorphoses into an enchanting one

With you as my soul mate.
