Effect 

Never did I think

You could affect me this way . 

Terribly short time 

With this avid display

I would tell you , I’ve been waiting 

But that would put a price 

That would make me

Vulnerable, even more to you.

I do not know, your intended purpose

But you make me feel 

A different kind 

Of minds in harmony 

Thoughts in synchrony

I think about you 

Day and night

You pave paths in my dreams 

Hold me close in reality

But we are doomed 

For there is no looking back 

And neither do we have a forward .. 

I know you know it, 

Or is it just a hope I have? 

Let me flood myself 

With this one sided reality, 

Where my right is only mine.. 

All I know is. 

You are precious . 

But I have drawn the line 

Illusion 


Iridescent shades of blue and green..
Enclosed in the aviary !

National pride of ,

The Indian subcontinent .

Predators of mice ,

Junior members of,

The bigger feline entities !

House pets,

Time servers ,but ,

By and large , highly endeared !!

Procreation is scientific ,

Or, so they say .

The creatures around you …

Been sentenced to the ,

Explanations of logical reasoning .

Your vision robs you of ..

Multiple experiences .

Blinded and fumbling .

Groping for familiarity.

Do you see the blend ?

That is your separation !

But in truth ,

It is a fusion.

Radical ! 

Novel theory ..

Of reality .

But fantasy !

In your world …

In your soul …

In the air …

And the water .

Escape the illusion …

May your soles burn !

With being worn out …

In search for the ,

Lost salvation !

Correction !!

Rectification. !!!

Lessons 

You came , you saw , you conquered 

But have you ever wondered ?

What became of me ,

Broken vows, stolen heart

Ripped part by part , 

You were my treasured counterpart 

But I was the passing music charts 

Days of countless words exchanged 

Nights of laughter and lust

When you waltzed out

You fragmented the trust 

And it took me all my might 

And numerous endless nights 

Never a thought given 

You took off in self absorbed flight 

This is not a pity party

Or an idiotic reason for getting naughty 

Henceforth will I smirk and fight 

Protect and safeguard my right 

And you’ll can go and fly kites !

If it means walking alone 

I embrace , and delve into the forlorn 

Unknown 

Domino

Dominoes falling to the effect ..

One of them the primary defect 

Or was it all on you ? 

You must take part blame too 

Tit for tat they say , 

And we are at the receiving end 

Of unwanted pay

This was never asked 

Should’ve put on a mask 

Restrained within a flask 

Would not have been 

Such a gut wrenching task ..

Will you ever see the cascade ?

Of your cold hearted masquerade .

How will I ever mend 

When I feel there is seemingly no end 

My younger self 

Would not recognise this older self 

Did not have the heart to say no more

Now the innards are a bloody gore

I started out fine 

Why didn’t I draw the line 

I would cry out for help 

Like a wounded dog would yelp

But the time has passed .. 

My conscience has been gassed . 

For I am nevermore

In the world evermore. 

Death becomes 

Dancing to the rhythm 

Playing to the gallery 

Songs for society 

Born free , but tamed ?

No personal purpose 

We have grown into shades of multiple colours 

To or not to our very own quirks 

Tragically taken at a tender age 

Or malignancy feasting on your flesh 

Where do you end up 

But with the tombstones , dead 

Your blood runs red 

You get cut , you bleed then 

Why does ego need a sumptuous feed ?

Do you know to what end you traverse ?

Have you attained the fulfilment 

Your greed desires?

No you haven’t , or you have ! 

But you will end up 

Beneath the mound 

Taken forever , 

Fed to the graves, hungry hound. 

Drowning 

Starts out 

No shackles , easing our way 

Amongst the like minded , immature minds

Progressively, baring the young soul

For the ravenous wolves 

The water surface , grazing the kneecaps 

Wading , waddling with a duck like gait 

The walls close in , dawn of revelations 

Hearing the decibels fall , as the 

Twists and windings become the calling 

Gurgling near the heart , I hear ,

Enveloping , 

As the breaths get exhausted ,

Feel the exhilaration, 

Liberty from the set ways, the known path

When it consumes you , 

Acknowledge by show of hand 

That you are exempt , that it is yours only

Control , supremacy , evolved being 

Free from the threads of fate , 

Each to their own , 

Drown 

Drowning 

Drowned 

And sinking 

Into the song of substance 

Into the melody of immortality 

An evening in the mall 

Standing on the divider 

On the two way road 

Bustling crowds 

Encroaching traffic 

Blaring honks and what not 

Signal turns green 

And as I cross the road 

I have the déjà vu 

Not for obvious reasons 

But the good , life goes on kind 

Through the metal scanner 

Into the throngs of people

The mall vibrant 

with the fluidity of passing time 

So normal yet , full of stories untold 

The creepy loner , 

Seemingly loving couple 

Mother and cranky toddler 

Old man puzzled with the chaos that is 

Alien to his youth 

I senselessly yet blissfully 

Mingle , although I’m not 

Pay a visit to the restroom 

There’s a sense of deja vu again

I hear a Harry Potter phone ringer tone 

Goosebumps 

How very bizzare 

While I use the little girls room 

Restroom in a mall 

An , every other weekend thing 

But an experience 

I waltz out, 

Continue to watch the jigsaws 

Loving how they fit 

But don’t !

Irony which is a symphony nevertheless 

I revel in the mind throbbing 

Madness .
