“A few good men”

In the crowd of the regulars
He is a man with a meaning
With the warmth of a gentleman’s touch
He will simply rise above
Every act is a straight act
He doesn’t manipulate you into believing
Restoring your faith in being a person of substance
Not just another woman without
A voice actually heard at any instance
No time spent has a destiny
It’s hours of conversations
Laughter
Tears
Smiles
And Fears
Endless stories of when you were a child
Endless secrets hidden
That he brings alive
His worries and witty
A little more trust in your kitty
He will laugh heartlessly at your foolishness
And the choices that you make
But will be your pillar
Won’t let you give up and break
Will listen to your blabber for hours
Whatever sense it may make
He may do several things
Keeping no count
Of give and take
He treats you like a his buddy
Still opens the car door
Serves you
Before you say it
He completes your words
Hates your drunkenness
But he is the one to tuck you in first
No unrealistic promises
No shower of praises
Its not in the words he says
It’s the act he displays
He holds your hands
Not aiming at your waist
A relationship of respect
A relationship of faith
You have seen him through years
To appreciate the man he has become
He might have phased
to treating you wrong
Certain things you wished could be undone
But he made it to your heart
With that one last chance he got
He has glimpses of your father
And a friend at it’s best
You hate your fights
But it’s just like yesterday
When it all comes to rest
He could choose to enter a house
And might have a night
This man would choose to rather
Be with you through a roller coaster ride
Together with whatever there is to share
A beautiful life.

Hundred Pretty Faces

pretty faces

A hundred pretty faces
A night of crowded places
One that caught his sight
Searching for truth
Among a hundred lies
His heart twirled in emotions
When she was asked for a dance
He stood in one corner
Not losing her glance
Calculating his pros and cons
Letting go or take a chance
Afraid she will turn around
And catch his stare
Is it just another night
Of a pretty love affair
Could he let her walk out
Through the door she wouldn’t return
Left his drink at the counter
Picked courage to ask his turn

He now saw her closely
Remembered the song
Of the girl with a broken smile
But she was certainly not 18
Neither in denial
Her laughter knew no bounds
She swayed to every tune
But in another man’s arms

He rehearsed ten lines in his head
To start a word
With a woman who looked like a dream
She was pretty, not exceptionally
But her beauty seemed deeper
Than her beautiful dress, perfect heels
Her branded perfume and scented creams

What would he say he thought
Should he just ask her for the dance
To his surprise she had stopped
Took a rest on a wall besides him
Dismissing her friends request to join back
Said I am sorry
I just can’t connect to this music
It is a funny mixture of electronic and trance

He now had to think for ten more
Not so cheesy but interestingly appropriate lines
He was amazed how this stranger in a club
Had hypnotized his mind

He thought of different stories
She would have about her life
Had she been in love
Had she been hurt
Had she really risen above
He went back to his life
And things that didn’t work for him
Few minutes and he battled within

Call it luck but funny
She asked him for a light
What would he say next
His thoughts were now noise

Do you come here often he asked
No she said plainly, just a few random nights
But tonight the music is ok
Usually it’s nice

He nodded in acceptance
To every word she said
One word led to another
He seemed to have earned her respect

I know you want my number she said
Why haven’t you already asked
He chose to be honest
Said yes,I would love to
But I suppose that would make you uncomfortable
So I decided to just pass
And just as he said it he heard the most beautiful laugh
I didn’t know you exist and I am glad we met she said
Left her number on his phone
He smirked when she left
Blind to her reality
Chose to judge her instead
Questioned himself
Drank and drove
Never made the call
Proud to have his mind on his head

Hundred pretty faces
Another night of crowded places
But none now caught his sight
He enjoyed his music and looked around
For that stranger who had owned his mind.

Less than Perfect

Less than perfect
Would you define to it me
It’s that half spoken word
A fallen out love
It’s her who walks on an unknown road
Relentlessly but calm towards a preserved land of hope
It’s them waiting for a moment that has passed
Lost in a vision of perfection sought
It’s that feeling suppressed
When in the suspicion of reality it’s dressed
It’s that song incomplete
Wrapped in ignorance a pain so strong a love obsolete
It’s the story you read
To alter it’s presence upon your mind
You chose to cut off the linking thread
It’s the words you wrote
Erased to your belief
Because it missed a rhythmic node
A blossomed flower
On its delicate feet
Plucked for its beauty
Story of it’s journey
Lost amidst the fallen leaves
A beautiful face with a missing smile
A dancing soul pulled out of life
Reasons put to a simple belief
Layers of questions
Would it be right, to just be me
A call unanswered
A letter not read
A journey missed
In contemplation, rested on denial instead.
A day just lived as a day to pass by
Unwed to the mysteries of the capricious sky
Not in love with the surrounding air,
The music of the mountains
The waves of the ocean in an arrogant flair
The beauty of dusk and the wait of dawn
Settled with known
Absence of will to explore beyond
Hypnotized in a conscious state
A dream so clear, strength so hazed
Less than perfect
How would you define it to me
Song of your soul
Caged in reality.

My Right To Love

This is dedicated to all fighting #377 

 

A destiny borne child

To live while alive

Dreams to withhold

Trying to be as told

Craving insight

In a world of rules

Forced to forget

Not allowed to feel the truth

Because of a few who have never known

But sit on their throne

Like they own your thoughts and life

Leading you to battle

Fighting to survive

Half a life lived knowing who you are

Half a life lived seeking freedom of the stars

Growing old with a million stories untold

My right to love

My right to hate

My right to live in my natural state

Who would be you

To define my right and wrong

I also sing with nature

I know where I belong

I pity a soul

That define love by laws

Look at your mirror

Go correct your flaws

I will live a life meant for me

I will define my own destiny.

Shades Of Silence

Image

As I walk in a crowded street

I feel the silence of my beating heart

The sound of my every breath

I feel my soul buried in me

so deep.

 

The silence of a mother’s smile

Embracing a life inside

Bright Darkness of an unknown world

Mysteries of her child’s touch

 

Silence of waving sea

Shaded in time

Travelled through eternity

Silence of a blooming flower

Waited for a season so far

Silence of a falling leaf

Relinquishing the breeze of life

As they swing

To the ground touching the soul of their mother tree

Silence of the mountains so colossal

As they stand strong

Validating the existence

Of a new life, a fossil

 

Silence of the dawning air

The eagerness it flaunts

It’s extortionate flair

 

Silence of a broken heart

Denial of a soul

Separation of faith

Silence of love fallen apart

 

Silence of the unsaid trust

Sound of music

A song of no words

 

Silence of an endless wait

Shades of silence

In the arms of your spirit

In the womb of immortality

Night and Day.

Morning Whispers

il_fullxfull.397748443_a4gr

As the night descends

In the arms of dawn

I wake up,

Still sleeping probably still dreaming

When the whisp of whisper

Blew through my hair

The sweet seduction

Of this redolent

Drenched in the rain

Unconfined,Graceful

Humming through my Soul

This incorrigible morning air!

 

The colossal sky

Pulls me closer to it’s infinity

Several moments lived

Floating in the lansdcape of my mind

A painting so sublime…

Holding back,the blink of my eye

A moment to be mentioned

In my diary of memories

The moment of the bewildered, muddled sky

A moment so fierce, A moment so shy

 

A song I sing

In concert of my heart, soul and mind

Thanking this prepossesing, Pacific morning

For the kiss of sunshine!

Heart Of A Child

4c2bbccab65b12e2b7b3c7d32bb41308

With a heart of a child

I played on love

Dreams of stars

Shapes in the sky

Words made of honey

Smiles of a butterfly

 

Naive I remained

To your theories on me

I didn’t ask you questions

Now because I knew your fears

Or just a casual affair

As you flaunt your feelings

I look now at myself

I see a broken me

 

Trying hard to hold

This stone of gold

Times we spun

Songs I wrote

 

Glories of a king

Eyes of a queen

Saga of a war

Death unheard

Love unseen

 

A thought that floats

All that’s felt before

Love of a man

Nonchalant shadows

 

The air I breathe

The sight I see

Weaving my words

Sound of the echo

In the heart of a child

That managed to survive

Inside of me.

Need Vs Want

images

What would I define to be my need

If I want to live on my bare feet

Is it my need to stare at the star

On a clear night, feeling it close to me

A clear sky

A bird,

not flying so far?

Would you say I want to breathe?

A day with being just me

Or is it a need

A Greed

To preserve a piece of me

Under these numerous colored sheets

Of a mask called life

Searching myself

A soul that has walked away

Shying from reality

Or Rising up

To be today

When told

This is who you are!

 

I need the wind, but want no sound,

I need a sphere, just not so round,

Love in my head, thoughts in my heart,

I need to bond, but I want to break apart,

Voices within, quiescence around,

I want to fly, but need to grip to the ground,

Such desires, such dreariness,

I want to imagine,

I need stillness,

A brush, a pen, To yield, or yen

The optimism in my heart, weariness of my soul,

A walk into my being,Or an aimless stroll..

A bubble to sense breath,A knife to sharpen my goals,

I want to unleash, My sanity, my sway,

But, I need to be in control!

I need to live as a whole

I need a cinnamon roll!

 

I need the sand but want no ground,

I need to stay up, but I want to sleep now

I need to sing but I want no rhyme

I need to travel but I have no dime

I need to breathe I want no air

I want to flaunt so I need that flair

I need to dream and I want that thought

I need to feel that silk against my skin But I want no cloth

I need a kiss of something like love

But I want no symbols like a rose or dove

I need no words, but I want to write

The story of want we call need in sight

 

I want no want

But I want all need

A debatable saga of my Mind and Soul

I want no eternity

But as my life unfolds

I need an experience

Growing as a plant

From a lost fallen seed

 

I don’t want to breathe but I need breath,

I need to live but want to experience death,

I need sunshine but I want the moon,I need this later, I want this soon

I want thoughtlessness, but I need to think,

I want to keep looking at you, but I need to blink!

I need to be loved, but I don’t want to love,

I need to look down, but I want to look above..

I want a poem, I need a prose

I need no thorns, but want a rose

I need to see but don’t want to look

I want a canvas but need a book

 

Death that comes to you untold

Would you want it to ask or come as your need unfolds

Sunshine you need to live it through, Moon you want for your dreams to feel true

Thoughtlessness is your need but your want is to think

How else would you know

It’s me you want to look at, when do you need to blink?

Your deepest want is to be loved,

so you call it your need

You need to love too,

Oh Darling

That’s your want within, a subtle greed

You need to look above,

at a life waiting for you

You may want to look down

To carry along

that voice of a known calling out for you

You need a poem to feel your thoughts

You want a prose to bring it together

All that’s missing, all that’s lost

You need a rose but you want no thorns

Darling it’s like love

You say you need it, but a heart always wants

You want to look, but you don’t need to see

Just like at a painting with no colors,

But a new meaning for you

A meaning for me

You need a canvas, but ask for a book

Oh Darling

You want a story, but you need a song

Let’s discover the truth

Take a walk with me…Come along

Song Of Two Souls

 dbeaa5d2d634f527ed3d2d804a50f6cf

Lets flee to the mountains or in the lap of sea !!!

                      Sing like a cuckoo, dance like a dolphin, such fantasies!

Dive in music take our souls to where it longs to be… !

                       Peace unfelt before, prayers unsaid before, freedom unexplored,

                       into the wild..u and me!

a dream of dew, lets make it true…

together lets go to where the whispers call …

find the meaning … out of our cocoon …

live a life thats me … a life thats you ..

                       Like goddesses, let’s walk, like horses, let’s race, like pigeons, let’s fly,

                       like storms, let’s cry..our souls drop the old, our souls wear the new,

                       into the wild, me and you

Like the sound of a passing wave,

like the madness of a bird that flies away,

like that heart of a pearl alive deep within, quick lets go …

We”ve got songs to live… Life to sing…

                         our voyage shall scare the deadliest sea, our will, the strongest wind,

                         the horizon will bow down to our whims, the world will aspire to get our glimpse..

                         leaving behind the worldly frivolousness, when we sail across the universe,

                         laughing at the nebulas around, racing with the silent sounds,we will be with our heads high,

                         experiencing our mesmerizing uniqueness.

we shall laugh like never before, roll in the sand, sit at the shore,

dance to the winds, earn our time from life’s galore, beauty relished

from beyond what one can see, sound of a pebble or the swinging leaves of a tree,

scare them with paroxysm who live to survive, we walk to paralyze the myth that surrounds the panorama of life,

sweet as honey in the silhouette of eternity, quick lets go ,

we’ve got that far away land waiting to applaud the strength of a life ,

with a song for you and a song for me.

                          Hey! Listen to what the winds have to say..Oh! that sparrow flying away..

                          hey! Listen to the sands near the Palm, oh! The oasis is not far away..

                          hey! Listen, the rose petals just whispered, oh! The fragrance is on its way..

                          hey! Do you hear, what the shells just said..Oh! The sea is sailing away…hey!

                          Hey Did you hear that sound, a beat, not too far, like an echo, something just born,

                          oh!yes.. Our heart is shedding all the pain away..hey! Listen! Our wink is talking,

                          our smile is singing, our hair ruffling, our breath living, our steps dancing, our mind flowing away..

Hahahaha! I love the sound of our souls chirping away,

excited at the melody of what the sand has to say!

Oh yes there is the ocean, lets wet our feet!

Or there! let’s run competing with the wind, who will win, you or me!

Yes i heard life just say something to me, there is a swing somewhere beneath the tree,

Pain! what pain? Heard your heart tell you, that’s been washed away!

Did you just wink or smile at me, coz the flow of my hair just made a melody,

dance to this tune, come for a walk this way,

mind now blocked in numbness with life calling out to you and me ,

let’s just hear to what the heart has to say!

                             And, here I am! Here I listen Here I speak, here I lay!

Here I sing, here I dream ,

here I live forever like this one fine day,

from the invalid known to the limitless unknown ..

you and me.. lets leave the caged sunshine and walk away

to where we are born to stay!

                            And, here is grass, on it dew drops, here is land, on it some sand,

                            here is breeze, carrying the smell of melting cheese, here my thoughts,

                            waiting for what you’ve brought, here the hay, on which I lay..here I am, here I pray!

I brought you a secret, packaged carefully

of what the sea told me when you felt the breeze,

of how jealous the leaves were when you touched the grass,

of the melodies whispered between the woods as we passed,

the story of that forgotten shooting star,

the scent of that blooming flower,

The sight of a clear morning raindrop,

color of the dawning day,

i wonder about your thoughts for what do you wish,

for whom do you pray!

                           And here I lay!

In Love With Hope

Image

 

When there was silence 

In a room full of noise

Sitting in the place of darkness

Just below the light

You looked back 

based on a spontaneous instinct 

And I looked up at you

You turned around again 

To capture for your memory those seconds few

 

I remember how you walked 

Across the room to me, 

Fighting with your nervousness

decided poised casual confidence it should be

You did a good job

as coming across as you

You din’t try too hard to impress

You stumbled words in your mind

As I waited for what you had to say

But before you had said “Hi”

I din’t know my heart was yours anyway!

I felt i knew you forever

never felt anything so strong

I couldn’t fight or pull back

With you is where i belonged.

 

We moved to see the sky

Strangers under the roof of that night

As we lay counting our shooting stars

You always kept me in sight

 

Today we sit miles away

But I cant erase any memory of you

Our love was meant to be fought for

But you gave up that one fine day

 

I ask the waves and the passing breeze

Would they deliver any message from you to me

As you blocked your heart

And mine wouldn’t let me speak

Would it be the worst for you

To come back to me

 

I still hold on to every word you said

All the promises you wrote on that page

Have we really moved so far

You need to ask 

Because my love for you

Grows at every stage

 

A love you taught 

So selfless yet selfish

A love only meant for you

I don’t want to believe 

In reasons a million

Because when you said you love me

That will always remain my truth

 

 

It’s never the world we need to fight

It’s your own fickle mind

We will reach our destination

Forever yours, Forever mine

It’s a simple battle of hope

Against the test of time.

 

I won’t cross no boundaries

But I won’t loose my hope

With us together or not

In your love 

I’ll grow old
