a fool

Something you thought so invincible

so colossal and

strong

now crumbles right infront

of your eyes

your mind understands

it doesn’t have the same vigor

the passion, with which it followed you

has withered

but you have learned to give back

with all that you contain

even if you are all spent

yet you do

and watch how it is all vanishing

though some traces

that remain to agonize

to remind

what a fool

you had been to believe

in this fleeting world

you would own something, invincible

I remember you

In the sheer melancholy slaved by priorities, trying to conciliate pragmatism and going over the mental turmoil; my head over a split second but seemingly so long, breezes into some field so green. Shoulder length grasses, still wet from the morning fog, freshness over the air that carries your smell… I’m walking… and you’re walking beside me. You don a frail smile but I feel so safe… I feel secured. That subsides my pain, my anguish but not my tears in reality… they flow, uninvited, confused as to what they signify? My momentarily bliss by your side or my untreated wounds. Or is my heart asking me to listen to it again, because I’ve shut it as long as I’ve followed my head to avoid the hurt. Is it asking me to step down, to stop the fight and go back to be in touch with the weak part of me- which surrendered but loved profoundly… ?

Inseparables

We’ve seen thousands of new sun and moon together

We’ve seen the high hills and the low lanes

We’ve build castles of love of imagination

And gazed the beautiful garden through the windowpanes

 

We’ve discovered life by each other’s side

And laughter for some shared joke

The ease with our hands held together

And the clandestine rendezvous under the big oak

 

We promised upon the purest and divine

Of the earth, water, air and the light

We’ll hold together till they all fade

We’ll hold each other until we win the fight
