Fatal attraction – Venice

Beautiful angels, here I am
One of you has my name
Wrapped in ashen parchment
Peacefully put in a frame
lungs unable to breath,
body floating with a wreath
death in a beautiful seaside
soul already in paradise
boats carry me far,
my beloved is north star
and she is waiting

Here is my humble effort to capture the intense beauty and sheer gorgeousness of city of wonders – Venice

Sadness on a busy day

My dear
In and out of fear
Story never ends
Even when bones bend
Unable to stand
Or sleep, weep
Injured deep
Inside, unable to move
Unable to leave
an impression
on sands of time
at your favourite beach
still, love and its soothing
dim, sometimes grimm,
feeling is left for eons
and a lost soul
able to touch it and says
Hey, I know that beauty
pretty princess was here
there and everywhere
rhythm of her steps
is a lullaby to this universe

Friendly advice on matters of life and death

spent all years
in knowing life
its contradictions
mind bending
hallucinations
love ending
propositions
heart rending
suppositions
heaven sent
dispositions
what is never heard
just understood
is the silence
of death
knocking each door
checking each floor
only calling your name
when it is time
fear is not a crime
just a condition
most sincere advice
Ignore all lies
of living till eternity
if won’t give joy
nature is coy
a short time is better
Do what matters
live, laugh, lead,
help brethren in need
sow a humble seed
of tranquility, ease
when the knock comes
leave in utter peaceIMG_0205.JPG

Eternal yearning

heart cries intense screams
eyes long for loved ones
decades have depart
thousand miles apart
faces can be seen
voices could be heard
slow burning melody of
a melancholy bird
embraces are missing
devoid of kissing,
cheeks, forehead, lips
mind runs and trips
soul dips, in darkest valleys
bottomless oceans
ferocious storms are no match
when hearts latch
on universes’ strength
desire to cross all paths
deserts, land swaths
inveterate sighs, bare feet fly,
without thinking, I will die
but, surely will get there
even in a coffin
to receive that embrace
when tears runs uncontrollably
moistening, cleansing, soul of sins
violations will find redeeming bins
rightful recipient to arrive
in sheets of alpine white
what a sight, that would be
of uncountable kisses on
cheeks, forehead, lips
time will slip, so go catch
quickly fetch, tightly latch
on that flight of sweet smell
first drops of rain
on arid memory lane
they eagerly await
but can’t forever

Juicy and hot

red and green
shades never seen
or perhaps have been
how would I know
I am colour blind
unsound mind
front and behind
salads, fruits
nutrients loot
discussion mute
all same to me
blame on me
so lame of me
mind is hazy
soul so lazy
anything crazy
will do wonders
mental thunders
life with blunders
still I have my
fruit and veg high
what a way to die
in coffin I lie
cruel world good bye

Swimming at the speed of sound

fly away
how far can you go
trying to get away
go beyond reach
from that heartbeat
wide smile greet
most amazing treat
now torture of the worst kind
better be blind
then look at the lie
created to suit need
being endearing to all
fraudulent call,
still unable to get away
broken heart, soul sway
perhaps death will bring relief
long forgotten belief
that there is good around
kindness still abound
love could be found
unless being luckless
destiny utter feckless
soul so reckless
goes ahead, dives in a ditch
heartless never flinch
takes a knife, cuts all veins
happy memory lanes
dishonest tyranny reigns
passion lost, ruthless gains
soul runs miles, fortitude wanes,
unable to stop, this fatal drop
and falling airborne me!IMG_0165.JPG

Unending journey

deep eyed traveller
your journey has ended
why is it so,
I still feel stranded
thrown up to blue
miles airborne,
or deep within ocean
castaway alone,
days passed in daze,
being left to rot,
no one searching,
not being sought
earth’s forgotten
part of billion souls
unable to participate
has no role
suggestions welcome
death could be one
castigation another
easily done
purpose and such
lost when lost
journey so dark
at soul’s cost
searching redemption
in universe’s hum
a new destination
here I come

Rome built in a day

Long ago in a vast lay
Rome was built in a day
Vias in a fickle
Trevi fountain for a nickel
Colosseum in a tickle
Vatican ordained
piazzas maintained
people entertained
and I came to see you
you smiled, self styled
guru of all potions,
mere notion that I have fallen
just make you giggle,
while I struggle, nowhere to run
why in love, I suffer,
you are having fun
why I came on this morn
when Rome was being born
your laughter being melt
into foundations of the city
to extend its beauty,
beyond all, mighty fall,
just like me, and
I had to leave on the day,
without you, to my dismay,
when Rome was being built

Shades of last evening

the beauty, charm, enchantment
of doubt has got you this far
don’t stop, don’t give up
universe will float afar
try to reach, that small twinkling
star, super nova, perhaps an inkling
of a new galaxy, where your dreams
even shattered ones, reside, scream
for redemption, and peace of soul
contraction of self into a black hole
let it happen, what else nature could do
let it rip you apart, let it through,
once each shred of you subsumed, consumed
in the fabric of nothingness, assurance will rise
certainty will surmise, in the shades of last evening
that, you existed and that my dear is enough
for me and for the love shared
