confessions of my kind

there are no definite laws to define our true equations

our dynamics has surpassed all known computations

we fight we love, we live spreading joy and anxiety

as we are one the unique creations of the Almighty

the magic remains diffused and we stay magnetized

the nectar of communication keeps us mesmerized

with warmth of togetherness our existence beams

but the fear of the society eclipses our future dreams

our chemistry doesn’t even follow the natural laws

she complains but when I initiate she withdraws

but I am stubborn, I wish to come, see and conquer

I want to make her sit patiently analyse and ponder

these are not the confessions of a dangerous mind

these are innocent candid confessions of my kind

No strategies, its my life

when I fail in my endeavours, they say I am not practical

but why do I plan a strategy, I am not a political animal

so what if success doesn’t come to me in an open platter

thought hope is not a strategy, for me it really does matter

I may lose to contemporaries, but that won’t hurt me at all

as I don’t have much expectations, my ambitions are small

failures never get to my heart, the success not on my head

and I will keep trying it my way till I am completely dead

so, if I will not find my love, my love may find me someday

I may not be there fully, but I am closer than I was yesterday

Oh Beauty

oh beauty, you are so agile

can’t think life without you for a while

your radiance is brightening the vast blue sky

you keep our flag flying high

oh beauty, your air superiority is awesome

you effortlessly make every man’s dream blossom

your smaller size makes the people go crazy

you sheer presence let the atmosphere go hazy

oh beauty, your maneuverability is unmatched

you fulfill all the missions unscratched

your features makes us fall in love again and again

you are the best example of beauty with brain

uneven love

why are these social commitments so tough

why are the existing social norms so rough

why are there no loopholes for us to survive

how can we vent our feelings and stay alive

she accepted the fate and surrendered to it

but it is pretty difficult for me to say I quit

I will keep the candles of my hope lighted

I will keep the emotions and sanity united

we may keep travelling on tracks parallel

whether they meet only time can foretell

her passive response will not let me down

it is not a sin for to fall in love and drown

love is a necessity not a luxury to survive

only where there is love there is life alive

the undulated feelings

oh, these undulated feelings of my heart

they are confused to start or not to start

at times the heart wants to talk to her

at times the actions appear to be blur

all signals to woo her have gone in vain

she has decided not to knock door again

but my sinusoidal emotions still wait

to get desired affection out of her hate

she senses undulation of the sentiments

but is scared of such social experiments

that forces her to withdraw from the scene

and keep the relationship pious and clean

relationships are not unconditional like love

and the qualitty of character is far far above

mysterious silence

your mysterious silence is killing me

your continuous absence is grilling me

how can you forget all our conversations

the literary temptations, the hesitations

your curious heart and untamed soul

your frequent visits your casual stroll

now your callousness is giving no clue

it is the same me and it is the same you

but I can sense an unprecedented change

your ways of response too are strange

is the friendship only for the benefits

expecting no profits whether it splits

if that is the case, we need to reconsider

so that mutual respect doesn’t turn bitter

and we stay happy in our own cocoons

and let the friendship end up in fumes

cloud of memories

the clouds of your memories are inside my mind

whenever I wish I close my eyes to relish, rewind

 my heart is painted with your true colour marker

and when I crave for you this cloud gets even darker

then the gloom lets it pour down with full vigour

the heart is satiated surpassing the emotional rigour

the way is paved again for clear sky with expectation

but heat of fondness evaporates the determination

and the cloud starts taking the shape in the streams

it gleefully gives birth to the ray of sunshine dreams

those dreams never let cloud of memories disappear

how can a lovable heart remain so hollow and meager

the memories are jewels of the heart that may survive

and they are our traditional testimony of being alive

the nest of love

I can see a sense of hidden withdrawal

And I sense something beyond the sight

either there is something terribly wrong

or something that is not principally right

but feelings are not slaves to such situations

they emerge out of something really pleasant

you may try to suppress them all forcefully

vigorous emotions may pop out of remnant

there is nothing right or wrong in love code

the unique nest of love has its set of rules

you keep what makes you happier and joyous

those who withdraw due to fear are love fools

all that found loving cannot be always owned

for God has spread the exquisiteness all around

feel the warmth of love and accept all its forms

as when you want love, it can’t be readily found

an illusion

all that you feel irrelevant today

was so apposite to you someday

the pledge to be yours for life

the promise to get moon for you

to recreate the Romeo-Juliet story

to build another TajMahal for you

we stayed lost for years together

we have shed our tears together

our world ended into one another

all untold sins were committed together

now things are not same for both of us

for trivial issues we make all the fuss

is the warmth of the love now lost

or overindulgence is paying the cost

is this real side of an ordinary human

is the love at young age just an illusion
