Family

The sun shines, back again

The colours seem brighter

With a little distance

Everything seems anew

The roller coaster of life

Is just another tremble

To look for ways

To counter each stain

The cold still seemed

Like a brother to me

From this imaginative

World of pain

The nakedness of might

Was just a little sight

The creature of light

Was true and right

As the time elapsed

I began to see

What the others

Wanted me to see

You sound like them

You breathe like them

And you become

A part of them

The creativity was always

Held within you

All it needed

Was a way to be free

Gruesome was

The touch of pain

For the social

Anxiety that crept

Incognito

Was my other self

But the family

Is what kept me straight…

Family

Grab a finger

And walk me through

To the land divine

Where I can resign

The masks I wear

Are causing a tear

To every suture

I ever created

From the wounds inflicted

Sometimes I wonder

Who even used

To rock that cradle

Then why have I become

So distant, so soon

What caused this rift

From humanly emotions

Isn’t known at time

But all that remains

Is the man in the mirror

Looking so proud

Standing on the mound

Help me break

These walls of pain

That I created

All for myself

So I can rest

Alongside you

In the reality

That you find true

Don’t let me relapse

To the path unchosen

For then the collision

Will be unbearable…

Nature

Standing

At the
Edge of the mountain
The clouds were shrieking
The fog was thickening
A place where even
The sky seemed white
It was hard to breathe
But for a view so magical
And mystical
It all, seemed worth it

I reach my hand out

To my own sole

Feeling every

Bit of that cold

In every part

Of this body

Standing

At the

Edge of the mountain

I took a deep breath

Full of little shrills

The cold is sinking in

Progressing through my feet

Try to recreate

The previous lives 

Just to see what might have happened

Standing

At the

Edge of the mountain

I gazed through a distance

To see what lies

Beyond the wildest fantasies

I could imagine 

I lied down

At the

Edge of the mountain

To look through the stars

Shining afar

Just whoever looked 

At the clouds these days

I lied down
At the
Edge of the mountain
Looking at the heavens
And thinking
Is it real
Or just another figment
Of our imagination
And if heaven isn’t real
Then what would
Make hell real
Just what is life after death
The only thought
In this mind of mine
As I felt it
Spreading in every
Part of my body
And so I close my eyes
One last time
Simply to let go

Of everything…

Life Chapter – 12

You die a little

Every day since birth

And look for life

Every time you breathe out

Now you stay

Here for comfort

Because it’s the only place

That seems real

There are no shortcuts

You need to earn the rest

It is your journey

And you’ll decide, when it ends

You don’t want to live

You want a name

So sit down for a minute

And think about your future

“You start to associate

Things with another

To look ahead

And make a fresh start

So let me show you

The way to go”

“Don’t let a single thing

Define your very own existence

You be the creator

And I’ll be your facilitator

You don’t need anyone

Now that you’ve chosen me

As your saviour”

But why not me

When truth could be another lie

Like a deceiver 

Looking to make a way

You start to live on

Every part of this play

Trying to make sense

Of every little clue

That I’ve laid

All around for you

And of course it’s exaggerated

Because it’s me who is doing it

Maybe I should simply

Close my eyes

But then will all be

Worth my time

What if I’m a sociopath

Telling everyone a lie

Or just another victim

From past sanctums…

Life Chapter – 11

It seems I’m not done

Writing about you

The dreams that you showed

Still shine like no other

And so I wait

For when inspiration strikes

Hand in hand

I’ll grow old with you

“Is that love I’m

Hearing about?”

The ideas are fragmented

By your brain

It plants the idea

In your head

“You need me

You need me

You need me

You need me”

The same recurring sounds

All over again

“Love is a language

spoken by many

making you think

all thoughts are of his”

“Heaven is a place on earth, where I

tell you all the things you wanna do”


Now that you’ve completed it

You start to think

Maybe this is the way

To achieve what you set out to be

But control is a must

To go forth with this plan

“Stop thinking about the future

Stop thinking about the past

Let me come ahead

And take the reins for a change

I have always shown you

The bigger picture”

It is you, who has played

Always a much deeper game

It’s you 

Who has controlled me

For all of my life

What more do you want

Can’t you hear my shouts…

Life Chapter -10

I created a chapter

In this book called life

But I wonder who will read

When I’m done with this file

The family is the one

I always cherish nowadays

Since they are the one

Who got me to this place

“Is that something of a

Gratitude or insult?”

The secret is out

I wonder if you’ll grab it

Patience and Persistence

Are the keys to have it

To unlock the doors

To serenity

“Or maybe to hell

That you gloat about”

I had a plan

But along the way I stumbled

So I wander around

In every other thunder

I chose a path

Uncommon for my soul 

Because of which, I now “rest”

With pocketful of meds

Try to recreate

The previous lives

Just to initiate

A glimpse of reality

But that is also tainted 

By it’s own filth

Is there any other

Way to breach

Or will I keep rambling on

On this path unchosen 

Never be limited

And don’t let it be forgotten

“But be grounded

Or the world will push you down”

Infinite Possibilities

Which one to choose

If I really am stranded alone

How can i come back to the shore…
