Inner Conflict

Here it starts, my love Are you ready to stand – through my version? Let me take you through The lands of retribution That will break you into pieces. It starts with a creek And the leaves Gliding in solace It shows your memory Filled with glee And people all surrounding, It was those days With flowers all blooming And Periwinkle so blinding A million … Continue reading Inner Conflict

Spring rising

A lush green Thoroughly undisturbed And the bleeding gold Seeping through the crevices Blue and grey – An elongated spine Rising into the sky And a million hands, Comforting the spring Besotten shades of life. The nightgales singing With the rising tides, On this stone encased land The mellow music Sparrs with the wind And with mountains to cross We lie with the Dew ridden … Continue reading Spring rising

Radar

Isn’t it beautiful? Every emotion that passes by A moment to recognize You’re still alive. It’s too short, We are often told Live a life without regrets And yet, we question A simple task, to touch To speak, it’s undefined Yet within a simple moment A constrain forever bound. A million moments To break out soul Yet within the swirling dark Resides a clawing creature … Continue reading Radar

Haze

His eyes were liquid honey Blazing and brimming awake; ‘Twas twilight reflected on his gaze. She stares away, in a daze Instincts clouded and lips locked away, Memories clouded and muddled. This familiar haze…. But, there it stays, The raging storm From a time before dawn. Yet again, the familiar emotions Grips the saint; so silence, Please, let me tame the devil. Let the ugliness … Continue reading Haze

Phoenix

Burning to fly, Rising from the ashes And learning – With each fall, Pleading with the next one To rise. In the darkest Hour, with each twilight Bust into flames And be reborn, More alive Than destiny claims. Poet’s note: Dear reader, have you ever sat in a darkened room and just crying yourself? Hopeless? People say it makes you stronger, eventually. For now, I’ll … Continue reading Phoenix

Discovery

Fill my heart with this feeling That encaptures the broken pieces. I saw the clash of contraries, A melding not mixing Of the light and dark; A powerful symphony. Hollow and content, Wandering till twilight Hoping the answers will suffice. Beautiful, as it wrecks the cynic; What am I to make of existence? Poet’s Note: Have you ever been stuck in crossroads due to simple … Continue reading Discovery

Fable

In those moments, The fireflies took over the surface, And the stars whipped past the sky. I lie here, With the dewdrops of night, And the grass tickling my sides. I see you smiling, Looking up, It’s like your mind is wandering With mine; at the very moment Unleash the fairyland On which we travel, Embracing monsters And facing the dreams. I’m next to you, … Continue reading Fable

Long poem: Unbridled Spirit

In this mighty grey, She trails behind. Behind her kin, Her friends, Behind the ones. Trying to be better. It is such a slow progress Once, then twice and then some, Breaking spirits as they come. What will you do? Unchained, she limps on; Scrapping wounds, Sweating blood. Trailing behind, ‘Loser’ is the term With which she is defined. Yet, she is unbreakable, No, let … Continue reading Long poem: Unbridled Spirit

The Lady

Mood music (Tamil): Enna Solla Pogirai (Meaning: What are you going to say?) from Kandukondain Kandkondain (I have seen, I have seen) A beginning with no end, The tantalizing promise In the midst of this maze, With your words Barricading the space, She’s caught. For now. Forever, the northern wind, Ready to storm away. Wind the flow of time, The lady remains. A soothing lullaby … Continue reading The Lady
