My Lighthouse

As darkness of the night settle in,

I stood on the shore

Watching the waves hit the sand

Like it has come to take it’s sand with it.

Then came a mighty wave with white foams,

Like a sparkle light for the night sky

Leaving the white foams to the sand.

And as the darkness started to engulf me,

I saw the lighthouse stand tall and might

Sending a ray of light,

To carry me back to the shore.

What I think

Right now, what am I thinking? What am I supposed to think ? Is it about my relationship? Is it about my parents? Is it about my future? Is it about food? Friends? The Goa trip next year which none is ready to visit? I think my mind has become a trash can full of unwanted thoughts. Why do we think so much let’s go by the flow. Follow your heart. Let it go!!

Whatever it takes

No matter how hard things get,i won’t leave your side

I won’t stop caring you

I won’t stop loving you

Whatever it takes,i am your ethernal one❤️

Symphony

I sat here, 

By the window,

Feeling the autumn breeze tickle me.

I could hear a forgotten melody when it traipsed past me:

Something about lovers and their quarrels.

A juicy piece about siblings and their squabbles.

A heart wrenching sonnet for the bereaved and his lost-one.

I sat here, 

By the sea,

Feeling the waves caress my feet.

I caught an arcane duet in the salty sleet. 

It poked my face like a thousand needles, 

Also brought with it the smell of nettles. 

It was a symphony of the bear and his cub

In the pine forests.

I sat here, 

By the dunes.

The warm air ruffled my hair,

And brought with it the lilting melody of flutes. 

The melody reminded me of 

The hymns sang in praise of the  Lord.

I sat here, 

By the mirror. 

Looked at myself with wonder.

The mirror was humming a tune.

It was about monsoon and thunder.

I smiled indulgently. 

Music followed me everywhere diligently. 

Or that’s what I thought, 

Until I realised that music is something that I sought 

After everywhere I go.

I sat here,

By myself.

Listening to the harmony of nature;

Quietly marvelling at how it destroys and nurtures.

I sat here,

By myself; 

Quietly marvelling at how music was a part of me.

Blood scar in his shoulder
Says nothing,
Heel crack in her toe
Says nothing,
infant's murmuring
says nothing,
rain drops from shell
says nothing,
Vessel carrying it
says nothing,
Starve says a "thing"
when will it change…
