IT WASN'T YOUR FAULT...

It wasn’t your fault,
I never took you that seriously.

It wasn’t your fault,
I never cared to look forward to your arrival.

It wasn’t your fault,
I was in deep slumber when you knocked my door.

It wasn’t your fault,
I never responded to your timely calls.

It wasn’t your fault when you came so suddenly,
Taking me totally by surprise.

Jilted me to the core with your wild vegenance,
I finally realized what you meant to me.

I shudder to think of those long sleepless nights,
When I made my last ditch efforts to woe you,
But you didn’t relent.

But never mind,
It wasn’t at all your fault , dear!!!

Because I know, hope and believe-
One day we will meet again,
Maybe in disguise.
I just hope we will be in perfect sync then,
Just like “made for each other”.

Dedication: My semester examination.
P.S:If you call it poetry, then this is the first poem I’ve ever written.

I CANNOT REMEMBER MY MOTHER ~ Rabindranath Tagore

I cannot remember my mother,
only sometime in the midst of my play
a tune seems to hover over my playthings,
the tune of some song that she used to
hum while rocking my cradle.


I cannot remember my mother
but when in the early autumn morning
the smell of the shiuli flowers floats in the air,
the scent of the morning service in the
temple comes to me as the scent of my mother.


I cannot remember my mother
only when from bedroom window
I send my eyes into the blue of the distant sky,
I feel that the stillness of my mother's gaze on my face
has spread all over the sky.

~Rabindranath Tagore
Note : This was one of  the earliest poems I read,loved and cherished.

WAITING FOR YOU

Concealed by dark clouds
You keep shining.
Bright streaks of light
Dazzle me.
Enchant me.
And keep me waiting..
Waiting for you.

Amidst Soul-lessness

There is smoke somewhere. 
I cannot seem to figure out where. 
The lights are here, the music is here.
Has it been home here ?
Perhaps. Maybe when it did not rain.
Or maybe when it rained and it did not matter.
Maybe when I walked alone, smiling to myself. 
Or maybe when I realized I was okay.
Had it been always like this ?

Not really. 
Things clicked, took effort and blood. 
Did I do it ? Or the beasts did ? Maybe we both together,
Played this game. 
Amidst soulful solitude, it was love. 
Maybe appreciation.
Another journey, another dry spell. 
Will it ever be home again ?
