Personal Thoughts, Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

Walls

The wall that we built in between

Still stands tall as ever and strong

I wonder what happens on

The other side of this wall

Does the sun shines bright there

While I admire the half bend moon

Won’t the drops of rain that falls

On the trees in your garden

Fall across the wall at least once by default

Won’t the wind that is scented

By the perfume of the Jasmine

Which blooms every night to wonder the star

Blows there too just like it blows here.

The wall that we’ve built in between

Still stands tall as ever and strong too

It is a weight to this Earth

But it is a much bigger weight in our hearts

That makes us strangers to each other’s

Eyes and shadows and footsteps

I wondered, from what is it that this wall is built?

It’s basic unit….

And I think

The material by which

This wall is made is not hate

For it takes a lot of love even to hate

These walls are therefore made of void,

Devoid of love!

Personal Thoughts, Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

Valley of trees

I forgot my soul in the valley of trees

While looking for birds which never

Nested in the same tree

Their colors and their songs enticed me

I misplaced my heart in the beats of their song

I tied my dreams around their feet

They flew high above the sky

The high altitude winds loosened the knots

And took away my dreams towards the south

Their light and mystic feathers captured my heart

And the feathers that fell from the sky

Disappeared among the leaves

Along with my love

My emotions migrated away while

Watching them leave

While I stayed in the same place rooted deep

And that’s how I also turned into a tree

In the valley of trees.

Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

Tornado

He came like the wind

Soft and gentle

Making me wanting

To go up high

Making my heart

Flying in the sky

Leaving me bedazzled

And feeling light

Making me dance

Even in the night.

And he left

Like a tornado

With a mighty force

Shattering my world

To dust and ashes

Drawing me in and

Tearing me apart

To pieces and

Took some of those

Pieces along with him

That spiraling wind

Took my emotions with it

And now I am blank.

Magical Place

I wish we could go to that place

Where the sun rays are that sparkle

In my eyes whenever I see you

And butterflies are memories

That escaped my mind

Where flowers are my body

And bees my soul.

Where the ponds are my heart

And you create ripples in it

Every time you throw a word into it.

Where we could surf above the tides of emotions

With our hearts tied together

And with floating thoughts

Hide our sins with the water of repentance

And be one in our dreams

I wish we could go to that place

That place, which exists in our dream

That magical place of the heart.

Thought for Change, Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

Black paint on my canvas

The Sparks that flew off the metal rod

While it was dragged along the road towards the house

Fails to amaze me for I knew what was going to happen

I listened to the melody of the rock

Against the metal as it came closer and closer

I always wondered what desecrated

The shrine of humanity in him

Why did he always smell of sulphur

What made him an inverterate abuser

The moment the door shut

Shivering I stay, not being able to look at his face.

The blows of the metal rod fell more hard

On her heart than on her body

The tempestuous wind never calmed down

Inside these four walls . . . .

So many days, so many blows,

So many metal rods, blood and marks and cuts and screams.

I wish Mamma was bold

But never did she let the metal rod touch me,

But I wish that she did that for her too. . . .

She says that he was never always like this

But still he’s the smear of black paint

On my canvas

He’s the indelible mark on my childhood. . . .

He is my Pappa and I wish that he wasn’t.

Personal Thoughts, Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

Beacon of light

In the darkness of black

I saw something shimmering, glittering

And doing all sorts of unusual things

I wondered what it was for

Seldom does something shine

In the reign of shadows

Each step I took felt heavier on my heart

For the star that it was

Was unusual and kind

The brightness it had was blinding my eyes

For it was darkness that I was used to all my life

Glowing and glittering it there lay

Luring me in and confusing my brain

Leaving shadows behind, I now moved

Through the darkness, into the light

The moment I reached, the shine vanished

But magically I started glowing

And I turned into, the beacon of light

And glowed forevermore dispelling

The darkness both inside and all around.

Thoughts recollected in Tranquility

Forget my words

I wish I could put into words

What’s really in my heart

And tell you how I really feel

What we have is perfect but

I feel something more

Something, some unsaid words aches

In my heart

I wish I could cease the moment

And whisper in your ears what I think

Of you and me

Open to you the secret corners

Of my heart

And I wish when the moment pass

You forget them all

Forget all the wonders you saw there

Forget all that I feel for you

Forget everything that I’ve said

So that we could stay the same as

We are now

Because I don’t want anything to change

But I just can’t bear the weight

The weight of unsaid words

So I wish that I could confess and

And I wish that you forget that I did.
