Once Again!

Lying all alone, thinking,
Of your mesmerizing smile,
Dream after dreams, weaving,
Sweet memories I compile!

April had been cruel,
Pushing me into solitude,
Forcing me to elude,
From fighting self, a lost duel!

Days passed by, now eleven,
When I last felt myself lucky,
Then, the Numen from heaven,
Turned this maze all the more tricky!

For you were not here,
Punishing me, even when I didn't err,
The pain of living without you,
Is what I am unable to bear!

Its been long in exile,
Inside me, serene voids remain,
Empower me, Break the chains amain,
Bless me to make all worthwhile!

Oh God, have mercy, ordain,
Let my suffering end, Make it rain,
Let me just once more, pass,
My Elegant Stranger, Again!

Why does it happen, Why?

Why does it happen, Why?
At the peak of your career,
You realize, Time flew by,
Leaving you secluded to cry!

Friends expect you to celebrate,
For them, You just won the toss,
Deep inside yourself, You evaluate,
What you gained, What was lost!

Aloof in the company of many,
Colleagues, Friends and Family,
The Fun, The Excitement, The Wishes,
With every passing moment, Diminish!

You want to be all alone,
To regain your ground,
In the inner emotional cyclone,
Fighting those voices profound!

You find no angel nearby,
To console your bleeding soul,
On whom you could rely!!
Why does it happen, Why?

The Invisible Stranger!

A magnificent, brilliant, mesmerizing composition from my dear friend Pooja!

This mirage echoes a sound, the one i wish to hear & hear,
Finding an unknown always around, i see no one else so near!

Like every twinkling star, my heart contracts n expands with fear..
Am i in love with an invisible stranger, the one my heart finds so dear..?


Read the complete composition here.

Autumn In The Air!

Fallen leaves
crackle and crunch
beneath my feet
and fall is everywhere.

The little girl in me
shrieks with delight
as I crackle and crunch
more fallen leaves.

Visions of leaves
and me running through them
to scatter them all around
run through my head.

Excitement builds
as I crunch more leaves
and let my head
fill with these visions.

The crackle and crunch
of the fallen leaves
is alluring and delicious
to my senses.

The fall atmosphere
with the crispness everywhere
in the air, in the leaves
awakens another side of me.

What is it…I wonder
that is awakened
and so alluring
about the crispness

Such delight, I find
in the crispness and
in the crackling & crunching
of fallen leaves.

How, I wonder…
could anyone not love or
fall in love with autumn
and all its beauty?

Don't Quit!

When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all up hill,
When the funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest! if you must; but don't you quit.

Life is queer with its twists and turns,
As everyone of us sometimes learns,
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out;
Don't give up, though the pace seems slow;
You might succeed with another blow.

Often the goal is nearer than
It seems to a faint and faltering man,
Often the struggler has given up
When he might have captured the victor's cup.
And he learned too late, when the night slipped down,
How close he was to the golden crown.

Success is failure turned inside out;
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt;
And you never can tell how close you are,
It may be near when it seems afar;
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit;
It's when things seem worst that you mustn't quit.

What I Want?

What to think about? What do i desire?
What is my gift? my passion? my fire?

I want to experience joy like all the rest
To shine like a star through every test

I want every being on earth to smile
And i want it to last for a long while

I want every creature to know that we care
For the poor to sing and for the rich to share

I want us all to work together as one group
To mix our essences into a glistening soup

I want a cure to be found for every disease
For violence to end and for suffering to cease

I want our laughter to be heard from galaxies away
For worldwide peace to finally see the light of day

How can little old me make these wishes come true?
Is living each moment with purpose all one can do?

I am here to make a difference by playing my tune
Hopefully all these wants become fulfilled really soon

One Glimpse!

One Glimpse of the unitive state
and you will never be the same

One Glimpse of your final fate
and you will see how it's all a game

One Glimpse of who you really are
and you will awaken to what is true

One Glimpse of the light of the inner star
and you will know the love that acts as glue

One Glimpse of the peace of being
and you will forever rest in the mystery

One Glimpse of the will that is freeing
and you will realize that now is eternity

One Glimpse is all it does take
for the spell of separation to break!

Every day I feel it more!

Every day I feel it more
Ive never felt this way before
Love so strong
I wonder whether its wrong

Things have been tough
Taking the smooth with the rough
I suppose I could be more understanding
A little less demanding

I know we’ll work problems out
That’s what loves about
When things are good
They are as they should
And our home is filled with love

We’ve been through so much
I don’t ever want to loose your touch
I like to think you will always be mine
And that we haven’t wasted all this time!

People all around me
Friends and family
Always there
But not quite here

Everyday I'm surrounded by people
But it's not always that simple
I may lose myself in the crowd
But it's not always that loud

When they leave
And I'm alone
A sigh i heave
'Cause I'm alone

The loneliness creeps onto me
Like the shadow of the night
And I'm afraid to see
That I'm alone again tonight

Though it only seems present when I'm alone
It's actually there evry time of day
Whether in a crowd or alone i lay

How do i get over this despair?
How do i stop feeling lonely?
I don't want this life of solitaire
I just want some company

Why do i feel this?
I Have you here
But why does my heart ache
When you are so near?
I know,
I need more than just an hour a day
More than just a 'hello' or a 'hey'

You are here but not really here
You don't listen you only hear
Please listen, Please see
Please know that it's you I need

This loneliness is killing me
Isn't it killing you too?
All I need is a conversation
With who? Why of course you!
