A Sort Of Oasis

Parched thoughts rained hopelessly
onto her diary pages…
racing madly to keep its pace
with the rich oasis of liveliness
that once enriched these pages…
“Madness”, I often thought;
yet, her tear-stained words make me wonder
“Isn’t this her hope?”

A Girl Remembers…

What Do You See?

A knight, a ray of hope, or a better world?
What are you gazing at, girl?

Pools of despair tainted with false hopes
scream through your woeful eyes…
You limit your existence as a canvas for the world to hurl its scars and scorns…

What are you still waiting for, girl?
Or have you forgotten again?

It was never the knight or the world
that held the shimmer of your eyes
It was you, dear girl…it was always you
You, the one who made it all better.

Now, wipe off that sorrow and let in that
lovely smile and faith to shine through
your scars and tears.
Let the world be dazzled
by your indomitable brilliance once again…!!!

 

Thank You😊😊

 

Destined Dreams

After all those wars that have wiped timelines,
after all the bloodshed flooding our seas for epochs,
the mysterious cosmos that decides our destiny
brings in a notion to breathe life into me…
As I breathe in life,
I hear the spirits of yesteryears
veiled beyond time
whispering among constellations,
of their aspirations for me.
Naively, I stand bewildered,
because I bear enigmatic dreams
etched by the irrefutable destiny
while mine wander about in hopes
to tether itself to me…

Memory Lanes

Haven’t we all strolled along memory lanes?
Recalling faces, moments, fragrances
Reliving favourites that evanesce
Haven’t we all strolled along memory lanes?
Sensing how hard, to forget those ill times…
To cherish some parts, to stifle others
Haven’t we all strolled along memory lanes?
Recalling faces, moments, fragrances…

Twilight

Do you hear the lullaby of the streams?
As twilight sets in, softly, tenderly
When gilded eyes droop for pearly moonbeams
Do you hear the lullaby of the streams?
As velvety whispers of the mild breeze
caress the nightly silence splendidly
Do you hear the lullaby of the streams?
As twilight sets in, softly, tenderly…❤❤
