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

Cries of the first trillionaire of the lost planet

delayed
message relayed
you are so late
humanity’s fate
rested in those
irresponsible hands
seas destroyed
barren lands
saving required
immense sacrifice
mere talk
will not suffice
but talk you did
in shadows hid
kept a tight lid
on issues grave
temperature rise
extinction on rise
species adored
shown death door
pennies to save
profits to make
arms are cure
poor must endure
ivory towers safe
rations they have
others good riddance
no admittance
humanity’s fate
of this late
compromised
everything died
except you
who flew
to your glass abode
everyone expired
whole planet fried
almighty cries
no one to listen
no one to complain
just a lone insane
and rest of the world
in demised memory laneIMG_2221.JPG

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

Dreams on sale

random guy
don’t be shy,
a wonderful deal
with destiny seal
I insist you buy
fascinating
intoxicating
absolute must
soaked in lust
smelling musk
every dusk
sweet savoury
gallantry, bravery
epics, tales
ships and sails
never fails
our dreams of morrow
eliminate all sorrows
let you fly
passion high
see unseen
where no one has been
re-live precious days
nights must haves
bucket lists, magic mist
that never happening tryst
possessions you insist
all for sale
priced in pennies
take as many
as you dearly wish
just leave your heart
as it will come apart
next day’s start
at dawn’s call
curtain’s fall
post reality bends
when dream ends
there you stand
with empty hands
craving for more
addictive for sure
caveat emptor

Pathway to paradise

Today was the day
when all was supposed
soon to be disposed,
worldly belongings
worries, longings,
deep slumber
is just so near,
eternal rest
with certain fears
of unknown,
insidious, grown,
scares, multilayers,
do not spare
raw nerves,
notice has been served
it is time,
sleep now
wake up to
reality new
after the end,
soul renews
seeing on the other end
long lost relations, friends,
smiling, waving,
reassuring
beautiful green,
doorway alluring,
pathway near,
cross without fear
spilling emotions,
unable to bear,
home forever,
uncontrollably cry
a beloved’s kiss,
wipes tears dryIMG_2218.JPG
