I often ignored words
Words in terms of reading, writing and uttering
Out of blue
I came to know that
I started to fall in love
With the words which i kept at bay
Very often
In my head
Words chirp and fly
Giving rise to a new thought
To be inked on the paper
Which breaks from inside
But still keeps me confident from outside
Now slowly i started to understand people’s life
From the other side
To give a ray of hope
Bring a curve on the face
Make them embrace
Their life in full
Helping them kill their inner evil

Essence of Us


In the late hours

I will be waiting

For your presence.

Your presence

Has really some essence

In my life

Through the phone

I teleport

And sit beside you

Tò import memories made

And export us

To a land

Where we not only dream

Rather make the dreams come true.

Let’s live the moment

Feel the presence

And understand the essence of us

Just us.

And the reader yawns…

Don’t keep me away from poetry
But keep me away from people

Don’t keep me away from the observations of my eye
But keep me away from the effects of those observations

Don’t keep away from absorbing others pain
But keep me away from my unknown anger forever

Don’t keep away from me
But keep away from my slight darker side

Emotions i can’t hide
I abide
To the pain
Slowly it subsides
And divides
Into pros and cons

Slowly the reader yawns
Saying “bygones be bygones”


We spend
One fine day
A jolt
Seizes the happiness in vault
Life comes to a halt
Neither you know
The taste of the salt or malt
Nor you can revolt
All you have to do is
Close the door of togetherness
And open the door of solitude
Show gratitude
Towards each other
Keeping aside ego and attitude
We are no more on the same latitude and longitude
This is just a prelude

In the Mountains..

Out there in the mountains

We wake up to the morning sunshine

It’s just you and me

Sitting close to each other

Locking our fingers

Whilst the cool breeze runs through our hair

We experience the morning greetings of the nature

I slowly turn to your side

To look into your eyes

To see that twinkle in your eyes

Which was missing since months

The moment i get to see that twinkle

I feel like the wrinkle of problems in our life are ironed

To make us feel light,bright and confident.

Rogues are there

Rogues are there

Rogues are there
Rogues are everywhere

You don’t know
And When?

They gonna pounce
And then words become very difficult to pronounce
A fear germinates
It becomes very difficult to eliminate
Every now and then
The same things pops
Out of the dark memory
Becomes difficult to hop

In such situation
Stay strong
Go against the wrong
Never assassin the inner you
Because of what has happened out of blue
But assassin the fear in you
Yes,assassin the fear in you
You being “YOU”
Without being shattered by anything or everything around you
Is what i say.
Unecessary thoughts in mind
Never replay

Rogues are there
Rogues are there
Rogues are everywhere

Are you ready for a Journey??

The very moment when we hear the word journey our soul gets excited and we start dreaming about it. We Google,gather information, zero in the locations and get ready soon to hit the road. A road journey can be planned. But have you ever thought of an inner journey? A inner journey within your ownself? Trying to know who you are ? What you want In your life? Even in our wildest dreams we wouldn’t have thought of the inner journey within our ownself. 

A journey in the nature makes you unwind,gives you wings to fly around and keeps you happy. Wherein an inner journey is all about letting your soul,mind and heart open and travelling deep within you to know the real you. Travelling deep with oneself is no joke.  It doesn’t happen just like that. It needs a lot of introspection and open mind to accept things the way that are and believing in it. It can tear you from inside, you may consider yourself silly till you know who you are,you will have sleepless nights,tears roll down your cheeks everytime you try to ask yourself who you are and for what this journey of life is all about. Once the inner journey begins you find happiness in everything you are surrounded with. You feel like giving.You give everything that You can and life becomes so simple. You become content and selfless. Happiness is  always on the face. The day your inner journey ends and you find who you are is the day actually your life begins. Till then you are one among the herd..
