Never thought about You….

Drunk in the wine of pleasure…

I ignored You.

You always smiled…

At me.

I didn’t see it coming.

A day when life abandoned me.

My loved one fell silent.

Then You took me in

Your arms.

Made me live again.

The way I never knew.

Filled with bliss.

I could see your footsteps

Unwashed, on the shores of time.

Exactly on the path I traversed.

I was gratified…

Then bewildered…

Then revered You…

You did so much for me.

Even though I never trusted You….

They are so true when they say –

Strange are the ways of the Lord !

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 ?

All Consuming Love

Dear You,

Looks like I have found you.

In the depths of my love, I notice your smile.

Yes, the one you flash after that brief moment of joy.

I feel your fingers entwined in mine. All the time.

Your eyes speak to mine, asking me questions.

Remember the first time I told you of my affection and my afflictions ?

You must know this. You consume my thoughts, time and grief.

Glad to have met you.
