I figured it was going to be tough, looking down the alley on a miserable night
The birds I had seen from dawn to dusk, were now gone, a lonely cat strayed down the road
I shut the window tight, I hated the writing blues coming to life, hated my thoughts dissipating into the night
I shuddered my shoulders, dispelling your thoughts and that perpetual loneliness that always hugged me tight
Oh! White karma! How I longed for your touch, your presence in my tomorrow, in my past!
But why did you have to spoil my present? Just let me be, forsaken but not forgotten tonight
In the distance I can hear the bells ringing, I can smell the sorrows of a thousand lives lost
Where everyone is scrambling for peace of mind, but for you and me there is no sorrow, no past, present or tomorrow
Every day we are fighting another battle, losing senses over trapezoid realities, swollen with frailties
The lonely bald manners have overcome me, the last butt of the cigarette has also committed suicide, ending years of tragedy
Blood, bones and regular failures are gripping our fairy tales, we who once lived to be free, are now dying for sex, money, fame, name & aim.
We who are God’s last children, stand here, awaiting our time for resurrection into the colossal towers of love and shame
I don’t know where you are my friend, I don’t know where we stand, love or shame? It’s just the same!
Why cry tears over fallen angels, the nights of terror when your parents fought with vigor, malice, hatred
Killed every emotion, dragged every pain, dropped every idea of love from the pages of history
Gone, the kindred souls, the brethren who looked after you for so long, time too has grown old

No one cares for my fallen soul, my everyday affairs, my sweltering hormones...

The Discernment

Two dark unflinching eyes glued on him
Unaware, uninhibited he played on
The girls on the floor danced on
But the pair of eyes dissected every presence
Gorged on to the blue eyes of its fondness
Watched every nuance of his features
Noticed every ripple of his arms
Seeped into his tuft of hair
Enamored with every whisk of his charm
He was the star of the night
Every girl’s dream passion
He flirted along with each and every
Moved the crowd to the magic of his motion
But the stuck-up eyes weren't amongst them
From a far off corner, the flaming dark eyes
Looked on, not a flutter, not a stutter
As night crawled on, the drinks reduced in number
The music too was soon to end
Last requests of the crowd were on
But the eyes didn't care, didn't shift focus
As the object of its attention grooved along
But suddenly the eyes felt its body move
With nothing to distract, its body rammed ahead
The ashamed eyes tried to tug the body aside
But the eyes landed in front of the shining knight instead
Looked straight into his watery blue eyes
Unaware what the body spoke, the eyes looked on blankly
With shock, the eyes saw his features retreating
With a smirk on his face he kissed the girl beside him
The eyes took it all in, every action of his
The parting crowd started laughing
Pointed fingers lingered uneasily
But the eyes gazed on trying to dissect the commotion
Concentrated hard to withstand every distraction
But two huge black-draped giants obstructed its view
Pushed aside the eyes wandered
For one last glance of its object of affection
The crowd jeered on at the lost eyes
Rejected, denied, scorned at and ridiculed
The eyes forced its body into the washroom
Salty, watery drops ruptured at its corner
Hairy aberrations fluttered rapidly above in tension
The eyes couldn't believe what it saw in horror
Wrapped in a beige suit, tie and polished shoes
A man was staring sadly across from the mirror.
