Of Moments…

They breezed past as air of life,
Never ever to return I didn’t realise!
‘Moments’ that shaped my today,
Experiences that enriched my way

A fleeting childhood with siblings,
A sidelong path to discover things,
A raucous time trying to cope,
A gloomy phase filled with hope.

Those endearing seconds of pedestal glory,
A wait for another day, another story
Blowing trumpets of fiddle achievements,
For they never cost a dime or cents

The share of smiles when gossip broke,
A secure mind defying the cloak,
The agonizing loss of material stuff,
On turn, becoming the butt of bluff.

Being as buoyant as a small yacht,
Fearless in the sea, until caught.
Being a loyal mate as a connecting calf,
The resonant mirth still makes me laugh!

Oh the glorious moments… do linger on,
Relish them, for they soon will be gone!

A scent of fresh glowing flowers graced the room Noting an expression of optimism on one’s face Swifted the day with an agile grace Having motioned by a thought Engulfed by confidence Incredible imagination running rampant Ideas tendered by success


Moments short poem

There are moments, of sudden pain… Of anguish, and love, that went in vain..! But these moments, Don’t last too long… I’ve made myself learn, To undo my wrong..!! Those moments, Flood me over again… In fragments and continuity, Binding

A Few More Moments

A Few More Moments short poem

Superficial Yet so deep.. The bond The desire To be One soul Two hearts That beat as one… Breaking shackles Sharing agony & pain Panacea Expectations A justification to live To what extent How does a relationship start? Where does

Dark Moments Of The Mind

Dark Moments Of The Mind long poem

He knows the way he’s perceived, he dies to see the way he seems, knowing it’s truly not what’s in his soul. Tells himself it’s not truly him, that hes better, but in time even he begins to loose hope
