Lights are out
The diary is lost
But I pick up the canvas
And a few crumbled pages
I hear the pen yearning to write
I see the colors painting the white
I spread my arms,
Smell the rain
Pierce my bones!
Its craving to hold on
to the window pane
I look up to the sky
It drops me the words I desire.
And in this cold
it ignited the fire
Memories are ready
Nostalgia is chasing
Euphoria is rushing
Writer cuddles the metaphors
The painter blushes
And the shackled voice
in the name of silence
in the sense of poetry
in the form of colors
I paint sensation,
The nail biting news
And all of our lives…
in red and blues
Couplets of promises
knocking my door
demanding their dues.
All the clamour
Amidst the glamour
Shriek and shimmer
for you my enamour.
Obliterating the darkness
rises a glimmer
Poetry and shades
Intertwined to make a MIRROR.
in the splendid moonlight
You read in that mirror
The Universe speaks
of those shades again,
It sings of you
counting the stars…
It listens to your feet
dancing magic in the rain!
The writer, The painter
Deep down you know him.
You open those yellow crumbled pages
You caress the shades
with tender touch…
But when will you understand…
The crumbled page speaks of you!
The shades are all the colors of you.
Do you ever recall us ?
Do you ever realize
All this time
in the mirror
It was You
It has always…
For all the seasons we have lived together,
You were the wind and I… the yellow leaf.
Today I have fallen on to the ground.
What aches is not that I fell down
but the nostalgia of flying all the way through with you.
I have felt the heavens kissing my face.
And believe me,
you treasured me with you being yourself only!
But what pierce my bones is that
you never told me
you were about to abandon this forlorn heart
You promised to make a life while living the seasons!
And one day,
Between the wish to fly and fear to fall down
I did fell in love with you.
People often say fallen leaves live no more,
But see how your love immortalized the life forever in me.
Its just that I don’t expect things.
And may be
I did not expect you to leave…
Your memories make and break me on the very same moment!
I have been asking the mighty to entwine you out of me.
And its an ironic scenario when I myself do not want to let you go…
The yellow leaf is in love with this pain now!
So what if we make a dilemmaThis dilemma is magic!
After all my love,
Its you in me…
Its you in me…
The dance steps with you in the rain,
Those guitar lessons with you
where I tried to cherish your name secretly in every fret I touched…
The poetries of mine you read
and the spaces between the words that you could let your breath feel so well!
All those places…
All those moments…
come crawling back to my eyes as it is their own home!
Its just the circumstances my love
that destiny is playing such cards…
But now its been a long time…
I am trying to escape the haze of love
At times your memories surround me,
and its never an easy encounter
Love, Its not easy to unlearn you
when I have read so much of you…
My life was a rough story
Lying on the dusted bench of destiny
And many pages are stained with pain
Don’t open the script randomly,
wounds might make you hear your heartbeats in every nerve
I don’t know on which page am I writing
But today when I look back and forth…
I feel like I am in the middle of a beautiful time
When I thought that fate
was just too late
to answer my prayers…
It sent you people 🙂
And you gave me the biggest thing
One needs to have a noble story!
You gave me REALIZATION…
You told me that my story is worth a book.
You went beyond covers
To see what lied in my cob-webbed heart
I was a green leaf
And you were the morning dew.
You landed from heaven so gently in my life
That all that world could stare at
was eternal beauty!
You could leave me in the haze of climax
But you didn’t
And it is the journey with you people
that has bestowed me the greatest memories
I wish that my story ends
with a tag you have gifted me in every chapter
The tag of .FOREVER…
Just keep me as a Diamond in your crown
when it is the time of sheer joy in your life
You people are music to the notes of my violin
Metaphors to my poetry…
And A LIFE TO MY LIFE…
Keep loving and living
You are real HUMANS
HAPPY FRIENDSHIP DAY 🙂
Broken and lost
away from you
In these sands
That rest down like our relationship.
the wind of fortune
Imitating the angels,
It rises again the silent sands.
I try again to stay away.
So I stain these winds,
With memories of my broken heart.
And restless sand hence gets heavy
It gently kiss and establish
Again on the same ground.
Whooping down in my own senses,
I pick the sands up in my fist
I shriek as loud as I can…
May be this way I get rid
of ‘you’ left in me
But I don’t know why…
Whenever this sand
slips from my fingers
It always write
Sometimes, I have tried to walk away from this ‘Horribly beautiful’ kindness of yours.
I tried not to fall in love…
But My love,
Beating all my senses and sciences…
Your memories are a little harder to disconnect with…
The breathtaking moments we had, are just deeper to dig out.
The thought of losing you is a bit more heartbreaking…
Sometimes, I have no reason…but I stay for you,
Wait for you!
I don’t know why…
But your love…
is just too loud against my logics.
Hold you up by Shane Harper (God’s not dead)
Not from a very much voted movie ‘God’s not dead’, but i loved the meaning of the song… the lyrics are quite enchanting and godly. Here is one para –
” The world is so broken and sometimes it leaves you cold.
And at times you can’t feel the fire to guide you home.
The demons will haunt you and try to steal what you know.
But the angels, they brought you, and they’re gonna hold you up.
They’re gonna hold you up.
They’re gonna hold you up.
They’re gonna hold you up.”
I think this is the song that always makes me realize that i am not alone. God treads along my way, inside me. Shane harper sung it with the dip of feelings. I do believe that when a song has both meaning and feelings… it eventually will make it to the top. Well its not about the voting, but some times about your choice and your opinion too. So, i loved the movie too.
So friends i advise you to give it once a chance, lend your ears to it.
Never say never – Justin Bieber ( The Karate kid)
Great song, great movie… One of the songs when Justin started his performances as a professional. This song is one of the most inspirational songs i have ever listened to. I mean the voice modulation, the lyrics, the whole song…
Here are some lines from it.
“See I never thought that I could walk through fire
I never thought that I could take the burn
I never had the strength to take it higher
Until I reached the point of no return
And there’s just no turning back
When your heart’s under attack
Gonna give everything I have
It’s my destiny
I will never say never! (I will fight)
I will fight till forever! (make it right)
Whenever you knock me down
I will not stay on the ground
Pick it up
Pick it up
Pick it up
Pick it up up up
And never say never”
Every person, in his life go through deep pits of frustration and sometimes scars too. This song forever reminds me that i do not have to quit. I have to live it up to the moment. I can do it, I can. And that’s the reason why this song holds position no.2 in my life.
A Thousand Years by Christina Perri
What to say about this song! I mean it is the best song in the world of romance! it takes you somewhere, where the memories of your loved one lingers and all you can see around is love… just love.
I know most of you people have heard it before 🙂 still here are some lines to relive its lyrics…
“Heart beats fast
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I’m afraid to fall?
But watching you stand alone,
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow.
One step closer
I have died every day waiting for you
Darling, don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more”
I mean if i did not had to keep this short, i would have posted the whole song!
I can write all kinds of stuff.
But my focus is mainly on these 3 – ‘Inspiration, philosophy and above all – Love’
Because love is something every one can feel, and if someone can’t, he wishes to.
This song has described the love and pain with so much beauty that it will leave you spell bound!
This has always given me new meanings and redefined still the same – Love!
A love that can stay against the tides of time… years, thousand years, and thousand more… 🙂
And if you find out new good things from a single song every time you hear it, it doesn’t only prove that you are a great listener and a thoughtful person, it also prove that the song has the quality to make you so.
The song leads me to go deeper in the phenomena of ‘ romantics ‘ and to write about the profound love writing has ever tasted!
This is why it stays at the top…
Listen to it once, because it only need once your ears to make you its own.
Have a good day friends… keep smiling! 🙂
in a cute sense of fear of a strict teacher, I ran like a chick into my class,
As soon as the bell rang, I tried to be the first one to step out of the school.
Dude, believe me I ran faster than Usain Bolt that time… :-p
How I carved those desks, sitting alone, watching like nobody is watching me and then writing the name of my crush and then tried to erase it completely so that no Byomkesh Bakshi can even doubt my hand writing !!
Passing smile at each other radiated the top secrets and eyes that spoke so much!
Every thing had the exact pleasure, i wanted
It was all about joy and friendship…
Alas! I can’t pull the rope again…
I have lost the tug of war against time
I wish I had a time machine!
These are the kind of words, the stuff I heard from my fellow guys and girls.
Yes, they would put to words, those dazzling moments the same way.
I have never been one of such personalities. I too have missed my friends, have written the memories on the page of life with the ink of friendship. Such memories that if i begin to spell, would make it to days…
But still, that’s not all i can think of and write about when i sneak into the scent of those mesmerizing days…
Rather than friends and fun only,
I always have and forever will…miss the vibes that kissed my very being the first day i put my first feat to that beautiful building, my school.
The way, we friends shared the food
And sometimes, those little stealings from the lunch box that contributed so much to the innocence phenomena…
But soon, the tables we joined to come closer to friends, to converge with them, to enjoy the meal…turned to the disfigured wood mangled with the compasses and sharp pencils that reflected our secrets!
I can sense the pain of those whooping desks…
Oh! those classroom walls…
Full of charts and hey! there hung my chart, that one of the walls did hold when i won my first chart making competition.
But as the time passed, the walls were stamped by the dirty shoes.
I can perceive the tears it shed.
What to say about the playgrounds!
Where our egos burst screaming! when they saw us lending hands to our oppositions and friends.
This way, we fed the white spirits in us with the delicious meal of sportsmanship.
Time has been growing and,
It has been
And i still, when pass by my school or come closer to that area, get goosebumps!
And then that overwhelming brimming out feeling again! when i put my first step into that building again.
It feels like it has its own cosmos, it hugs me with all the affection it can afford. I go to my classroom again like that kid Usain Bolt with the same spilling out enthusiasm and excitement!
I reach my classroom breathing heavily and read the label stuck to the wall ’10th A1′ and smile… 🙂
It was none less than a child that runs for his chocolate and never gets tired.
I enter and see, the blackboard that prepared me for life! the The chalk box, my teacher’s cupboard, the podium where my nervousness magically centrifugated to the confidence i earned after the first speech i gave… those desks, the same wall.
An impulse in me was finally cherished…
Full of tears,
Once again as i was sent to school the first day,
Slowly sat on the desks,
I lent my ear to it and it spoke to me my childhood.
“Oye aaj tu kya laaya hai?” (What did u bring today in lunch box)
“Aaj mamma ne ye bheja hai” (today mom sent this)
“Yaar ye to meri favourite sabzi hai (hey this is favourite meal)
“Kamine thoda kam kha” (You dog! eat less :-p )
“Baaki sabko milega par tujhe ni dunga ( All others will get some meal, except you )
All those voices it kept within it, it just transmitted into me and brought to me an immense happiness!
Then, i hug that wall.
Sometimes, it is damn cold!
But it has a warmth that has given life to my days…everything I crave for!
I come to my playground, turned around, imagine all those scenes playing like an emotional movie in my head…and i breathe in the vicinity…
I mean, my school was – A home away from home.
It has made me realize that there is nothing more beautiful than childhood and essence…
Essence is the mother of all memories… 🙂
They are rare that miss the ‘school’,
others just missed it…
So people must think, when they say they miss their school.
Because most of them miss their peers….
So which of the two,
Do you miss often…
The classmates, the school, or both?
