Love at first sight…

My life wore a cloak of mundanity

over my inane wallflower mien,

until I saw you today.

As our eyes locked,

time stood still; the moment frozen.

You cast a magical spell on me,

a heady cocktail of emotions brewed within.

Your seraphic smile ignited a sensory euphoria,

undulating heartbeats drowned me in ineffable feelings.

I was drunk admiring your honeyed beauty,

as my life seemed to slip out of my control.

I must confess it was love at first sight,

or so I thought, until  

 I saw you walk into his open arms.

 Alas,

that was the end of my fleeting love story!

Who Am I?

Who am I?

Am I the name my parents gave me?

Am I defined by the role of my relationships?

Am I the face that the mirror reflects?

Beneath the clamour of thoughts that plague my mind,

between the tangle of emotions, that blanket my heart

seeking external validation of the judgemental eyes,

I look to find myself.

I delve into the depths within, on a journey of self-discovery

my eyes scan for that elusive answer, which plays in the shadows.

I live on, trying to find my true identity.

Until then, I shall ruminate on, who am I?

That Evening…

Finally, she said Yes!! My joy knew no bounds. We were going on a date that night, to celebrate this happy day. The soft romantic number playing on the radio, complemented my rapturous mood perfectly.

I took care to dress well. Looking at the mirror, I chuckled. “Hmm, not bad” I said to myself. I splashed some extra cologne and was all set for our celebratory dinner. Looking at the watch, I reminded myself not to be late. She would be here any moment.

As I was coming down the stairs, the sound of the gunshot pierced into the stillness of the evening. I saw her body collapse onto the floor by the front door. A dark figure, furtively darted into the fading dusk outside. I sat there numbed with shock, too dazed to move.

 “Cut!”, called the Director. Good shot Morgan! Let’s pack up for the day.

To Journey Within!

In life there comes a time, when there is a paradigm shift

the bucket is the same, only the list undergoes an overhaul.

From the materialistic, the focus shifts to the spiritual,

 mind delves deeper, to find the meaning of life.

The soul wants to embark on a journey

 to explore the realm of the cosmic plane.

Before the expected time of final destination arrives,

first on the list, is to awaken from the deep slumber of existing

 in a rigmarole of societal pressure,

free oneself from the clutches of unending desires.

The goal now, is to travel inward,

listen to the silence, indulge in reflective conversations,

evolve to be an enlightened version of the self,

 bask in the glory of the infinite light, to finally

 experience the blessing and affluence of divine wealth.

Graceful Acceptance!

Now, at the fag end of life,

home alone, in an empty nest,

I wrestle with my waning memory, fogged under

receding hairline and furrowed brow.

Misplacing things, is a daily affair,

forgetfulness, my constant companion.

Simple tasks seem daunting,

what I did in a jiffy, now takes ages.

Today, the mirror reflects my withered shell,

but beneath it, I am still a beautiful soul.

As I glance back at the rear view mirror of life,

I have realized that, it is futile confronting the loss of youth.

In graceful acceptance of old age, with all its quirkiness,

lies the key to happiness!

At Peace!

The warm breeze carries moist salinity of the endless sea,

the hues of the receding sun begins its final dance across the horizon,

choreographing each movement with graceful swirls.

As dusk ambles across the skyline with a sublime gait

leaving a trail of scarlet dreams,

I sit by the shore watching this celestial spectacle unfold.

Just as the broody clouds pale against its luminous crimson glow

my stress from the chaotic day releases,

bringing an untold sense of calm to my weary mind.

Lovestory!

My lonely heart flying solo in the blue yonder

felt the expansive emptiness engulf me

my lingering sighs, shushed by the gusty breeze.

Until,

 I saw you fly by me, my heart skipped a beat

your ambrosial beauty painted a portrait of love

beneath the panoramic sky, the winds now whispered romantic poetry.

Wooing you in all earnest, I set about

scripting a love story filled with alluring dreams.

Today,

Two love birds,

pecking in rapturous delight

perched high up, sing songs of glee.

Afterall,

 it was love at first flight!

Some bonds are forever…

Today, they meet after a decade

a whiff of nostalgia sweeps across

as they go on a pilgrimage, back into time

to their days at college.

Popularly known as the gang of feisty four.

they scour memories that drifted into oblivion

fill in the blanks to the present,

unburden their hearts, laying it bare.

Time stands still as unbridled laughter fills the night

their repertoire of unending chatter continues

as the eyes cloud with emotional euphoria.

They commemorate the growth of kindred spirit

celebrating the soul of their friendship!
