Promises broken

I will not hurt you ever
Nor break your heart
I would cherish you
And be by your side
You had promised
Touched a soul
On its last journey
And promised
Three years later
Your promises lie scattered
Like colourful, dead leaves
Love’s skeltonic ,dry branches
Hanging limp
Over my heart
Saturated with a fertile
Fountain of tears and blood
Hope a stagnant boat
And future
An abandoned home

Death , Finally

So that day

She finally died

After a lifetime of

Being bullied

By closest one

Being hated ,rejected

Neglected and

Trampled upon

Like a rag doll

For thoughts she didn’t think

Sins she didn’t commit

She was only a mirror

Reflecting the evil

Within one who

Looked at her

She was stoned

For other’s sins

Burnt at the pyre

Of greed , ego and madness

Another innocent soul

Another loving heart

Blamed for that

What was wrong in others

Chewed hollow

Till nothing

Remained palpable

But she so wanted to live

To laugh , dance and sing

To travel to far away lands

To breathe in

All that was oxygen

All that was love

To crack silly jokes

To hug and kiss

To find and explore

To learn how to swim

How to ride

To adopt another dog

To celebrate another festival

She loved life

She lived love

Finally she died That day

Or was it night ?

Memory fades

As breath stutters

And the curtain closes

Gone now

After a lifetime of abuse

At the hands

Which she held to live

To survive

She so wanted to live

Sometimes the mountains

Just eat you up

All that is fine is foggy

All that is kind is harsh

You lose trust In goodness

In people who mean well

The isolation hypnotises

You to see only the dark

The rocks harden the heart

The wind takes you

Far far away From reality

Movement becomes a habit

And you don’t stay

You only walk away

Breaking others

Into fragments

Never to be a whole again


The mountains eat you up

dsc_0536-011838068817.jpegPropped in my bed
With suffocating quilts
And overpowering
Heating pads
The dim light sapping all
The cold crawling
Into every atom within
Loneliness the sole companion
I wonder why my compass
Took such a wild turn
Why cruelty is so kind to me
What triggered the wild
Holocaust of all I stand for
Why love always a stillborn
And I dream of open spaces
Of trees and birds
Blue skies and grass
Of the freedom
I once had
Of the momentum of life
Once so alive
Answers confuse
The question marks
Get deeper
Resignation subdues all
My soul contracts
With intense pain
As the last breath
Becomes a cherished escape

Christmas Hope

Another Christmas

Another time to love

To forgive and to give

This time

Let us become big

In hearts rather than gifts

Point fingers not outwards

But inwards

Forgive rather than blame

Go WE rather than I

Trust again

And above all

Be loving , loyal and kind to

All those who we think

Don’t deserve our empathy

Embrace all those

Who are lonely

Within and without

Let money take the back seat

Let Love reign supreme .

Merry Christmas to all

That is alive

And pulsating in

The Universe

Magical revival for all

That is fading or dismal

Love and hugs

Do keep me in your prayers

I Wonder …

I often wonder
Why animals have hearts
So full of love and loyalty
Why forgiveness comes
So effortlessly to them
Why they dance ,
Their entire being a joy
Whenever you return home ( Even if you have been away only for a few minutes ! )
I often wonder
How they sense your sadness
And refuse to leave your side
Till all the tears dry
Why they want to kiss and Cuddle all the time
Even when you shout at them
I often wonder
Why they follow you everywhere
Looking at you longingly
As if you might vanish
Into thin air the next moment !
Why they shrink in your absence
Why they wait for you ,forever
Why they don’t want to
Change you
Or exchange you with another
Why all your flaws are
Nothing ,just nothing to them
Why your being is their
Entire life !
I often wonder
