We..

A dream
in dappled hues
awaits in our lovelorn eyes..
A hope
in all its glory
Flutters in our endearing nest..
A trust
From a seed to a blossom
Nurtured through the love and innocence..
A love
Pure and pristine
Blessing our souls with joys abundance..
In each kiss that made us one
We have realised our dreams
In each step in the moonlit night
We have lived a life time
Who says we are together for years
When
Our hearts have beaten together since time divine…

R.I.P

The stories
the legends
the myth that our hearts
breathed through
in deep slumber lie motionless

a lifeless stir in tranquil
waters of a stagnant ness
a murmur unheard of
in the deafening silence
an obscure silhoutte
veiled in grim darkness

Life..again..

With each drop that
touches my soul
a sigh tides through
the sea of tranquil

a life lived and lost
a smile that bloomed and withered
just a sweet fragrance
and a moment of truth
is all that endures

in dappled hues and
myriad notes
a sonnet the heart
lost the tune and beat
resonates through
the dark clouds

a beating of the heart
a desire profound
a smile open and warm
all it takes
to believe again
to live again !

Can you?

Look in my eyes
can you see
the sea of love
beyond the shore of lies

can you feel a little warmth
from someone you call your own
in each touch, each kiss
can you feel
a callous heart
giving in to pure passion..

can you trust
me with your heart
and trust death be mine  before
I tear it apart ..
