The lark waits…

   The moon that night
   was a shade more dark
   In those deep blue eyes
   an emotion stark
   Lurking in the abyss of despair
   that night had almost lost its spark..

     The hearts that
     loved and longed forever
     in love and trust
     their nest aflutter
     veiled in a misty gust of black
     the whirlwind came
     and toppled it over..

   A pair of eyes
   it loved so much
   A song that filled
   its heart with mirth
   Was no more warmth
   Just a numbing chill
   A haunted tune
   And a frightening shrill…

     the lark that once sang
     tunes of joy
     lost its glory
     in sheer dismay
     the pearls of sorrow
     all wound together
     a shackle that bound
     its wings away

   the night had passed
   and so had the storm
   with renewed dreams
   came the scarlet sun
   chirping with joy
   and a loving heart
   to take its love on a
   fresh new start

     with a broken wing
     it could not now soar
     hearts mend but scars
     still green and sore
     the lark could only
     ask in despair
     why love had always
     to be so unfair??

 Its friend its mate
    Still awaits..
    With open wings at the
    Golden gate
    From where
    Starts a flight to heaven
    Far from mistrust and hate…

Story of my life..

Untraded path unseen challenge
Questions galore meet a silent stance
A life bonded in shackles of routine
A hope to resurrect the love within

A whiff comes by, of a placid dream
Melts the soul and casts a beam
Cobwebbed wishes glitter with sheen
A new era is about to begin

A silken route to a golden end
A hand to hold through each turn and bend
A whisper awakening love abound
A healing touch for a thousand wounds

A dream it was so did I know
Whims of a mind never learnt to bow
From the gravels of a stubborn despair
Will rise a wave to end the nightmare…

Journey

Like the river over the hills

carrying a  countless pebbles

murky secrets and stingy truths

hold your heart in shackles

 

Tucked away in your heart’s closet

tangled in life’s riddle

the sweet innocence of a dream

and a far unheard giggle

 

Flowing along a path uneven

treading over your wish

miles to go before you reach

the blue sea you cherish…
