Collateral

As the dawn breaks on your face.. I see the golden light touching your visage.
You smile demurely! Talking to me about the new journeys you just made.
We talk for hours sitting side by side
I never look at you!
But I can still see your eyes
Over those black frames.
And I see a distant dream Sparkling with joy
Upon the blurry edge of the horizon
  Dazzling and  bright.
I see flashes of many more things
But I remember them not!
As I remember those long conversations with you..
You once told me about the amusement park you visited
And you told me about your friends.
You told me about the foes..
Also we talk about those who know us both,
You tell me what you like about them.
It's 6o'clock in the morning. My alarm rings…
Like other days ,I do all my chores.
It tires me up mostly!!
These are long days..
And pointless too.
I eagerly wait to see you
To hear from you again.. I wait patiently for the day to end.
And then when it's night.
After I fall asleep!!!
I find myself awake…

By the sea shore....

The depth of the sea The crashing waves The ebb and the flow The wildness of the breeze The melody of the sea The moonlit night The beam of light On the water.. The reflection of your soul The deep of your mind The voices inside The spark in your eyes The memories behind The sound that says.. Life is not constant!!
Love , A

I must be gone....

There I saw you standing, At the corner of the Drowning street... The distance was huge between us Coldness all over our face. The greys in your hair told me.. Its been a long time now!
I saw you today. Our eyes met for a while. And then the fog grew dense  You strayed elsewhere...
The unspoken was heard in the bristling wind.... Echoes of the distant time came back..
The coldness grew dense and  I walked away. Traveled the unmeasured distance.
love, A

Mt.Pandim.

Despair!
The sun hides behind the cloud
Dark and Cold it was that morning
And no room for hope
But still somewhere in the corner
Of my heart I saw a gleaming light
Was it real..
Or reflection of
The self!?
For we see nothing but reflections.
And then the gushing wind blew through the valley
Unveiling the old and ancient.
Standing mightily in front.
Our eyes glistered!
The magnificent stood straight
Unaltered by any emotion.

8th March....

"No I do not want to be equal to men", said the lady friend.
And I agreed.
When everyone is talking about Feminism and on having equal rights and opportunities, I do not feel that I am equal to man rather I feel superior and so I am not a feminist.  We make our way through all possible hurdles. Our life starts with a struggle and ends too. And we fight hard, win it all and embrace them all. From managing a ticket in a crowded movie hall to not getting fined for taking a one-way road. yes, we the women know how to wear a smile on our face and innocence in our eyes to sneak through them. That's how we drive the men mad at us for they get caught, punished and their plea get unheard most of the time. We have those super qualities of multitasking which our men cannot. Even on genetic level men have two chromosomes and with their X and Y together they fumble and wonder what to do until a woman guide them through :D We are vulnerable yet we are strong and so we can adapt our s…

I Accept.... Do I ??

Rainbow...

So far , yet so close Dancing along the water, feet on the shore, You rise along the tide And plunge with a roar You know not where it takes you You know nothing about grasping the  oar.
Flow with the life  Flow in the wave Dancing to the shell-songs, She take rainbow in one hand  And the other hand raved.

Love 
A

You and Me

Like sacred fire it will glow In my heart ,in yours. Those dark blurry lines will be clear It will rise like an Inferno and Everything will get charred And will be more sacred like a soul With knowledge of its past. The grotesque mask will fall Everything will look beguiling 
You and me Will be US.
Love, A
