Your name…

Broken and lost
Quite alone…
Long apart, 
away from you

In these sands
That rest down like our relationship.

Arrives…
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
Your name…

I was lost to be found…(Part 1)

Yesterday i was going across the central park, i was jogging and breathing heavily… the lactic acid blocked the metabolism, but leaving the biology stuff behind, i was running, i was unable to feel my legs, the indignation i was having inside me was not letting me stop… i was running and till i came down to my knees in the park, i came to know that i had completed 13 rounds, i usually came everyday to jog 5 rounds. This was my limit… i couldn’t sprint more than that! I fell down on the ground…

  It was 4.30

And soon the tears i shed like a little kid mingled in the dew and sweat. I pulled myself up and it was not only against the ground…suddenly a flash light penetrated into my eye. I took two steps aside and there was no light, nothing! I again came to the same place, taking back two steps…

And again, that same light. I wiped the tears and then i just wanted to see the source, from where this light was coming… i moved in that particular path… the intensity increased as i moved towards the source and this was quite maddening but still the curiosity pulled me closer and closer, it was a red book, lying on the bench, i couldn’t see it completely, what was written on its cover, all i could see in that was some words written on one of the page, they were shining! My heart was pounding at fever pitch!

They were

                            “The world needs you”

As i touched the words, something queer happened…I was guzzled into the book. I didn’t even get the time to be wonder struck, or shriek out!

In the dream, I was told, by a white serenity, innocent face with an angelic smile that I had a purpose, in fact two…

As i woke up from a deep slumber, i discovered myself on the footsteps of a strange building,

I perceived the scenario like if I was dropped from sky, then i remembered i seriously was a kind of…

I just stood up, and the steps spoke ” Hello dear, how are you”… It was so so haunting! like you came somewhere you never have been, and What the hell! now even steps talk!!! I fell down from the steps, i reached the floor with my enlarged pupils! I was trembling and suddenly the floor asked – “are you fine!” I was stuck in this strange horrible place. I looked around and found creatures to be talking with non living things and with each other…

Would I get to know my two purposes???

Would I understand this world???

Would i make a win through this fuss…

Read in the next part.

To be continued…

Falling skies…

image Lesser and lesser,
Dimming more and more
The voice of your footsteps,
Like waves leaving shore…

Every presence of you
Fainting in the fog…
Like trees have no feelings,
For the dropping logs!

I never poked for perfection,
Only dreamed to be complete,
And you focused on business
Not my running heartbeats…

Without even a reason
One day i found,
That under my feet,
Was no more ground!

U gave a down,
That i might ever rise
U left me under,
The falling skies…

I was just played,
Like pawn of a chess,
And never realized,
The webbing mess’…

But Coming there,
I see a day…
When destiny will catch you
Your reeking hands with my blood!
And how much you insist,
As much as loud you shriek,
IT WILL NOT
Let you get away!!

And if by chance we meet,
What will you say!
To the silences between us,
What will you say!
For your past plot array…

And i would just love,
To see you stealing eyes,
When you will have no answers
No curtains covering lies…

And that day you culprit!
Will get how one dies
When alone is he left
Under the falling skies…
