In a Parallel World

I see us standing
Side by side happily
Laughing at some joke
In a parallel world

I see us talking
To each other openly
Resolving our issues
In a parallel world

I see us buying
Books together just
Because I loved reading
In a parallel world

I see us arguing
About your busy life
And you making up
In a parallel world

I see you reading
My words and reaching
Out for my hand subtly
In a parallel world

I see us planning
Our life together
In whispers of night
In a parallel world

I see us fading
As the strong winds
Bring me back to this
World, there is no us

Smile

One day you are best-friends
Next day you don’t know the
Person who walked away
Smile, you aren’t alone

You got married to the perfect
Person and then the clouds
Cleared leaving behind nothing
Smile, people always change

The job was all that you wanted
Then a whirlwind of problems
You were shown the door
Smile, uncertainty is life

As a kid you had big dreams
For this little wondrous world
So many dissipated with years
Smile, we all have nightmares

Life will give you the world
Then one day pull the ground
From beneath your feet
Smile, believe it will be okay

Niedosyt

I watch the stars above me feeling
So small wondering how vastly the
Big black blanket is spread all over
us and the millions of pearls that are
Stitched on to it delicately each placed
With precision that one can only wonder
About The magic of nature all around
That I feel flowing inside me brings in a
Sense of dread and despair for there
Is so much to see and know and barely
Any time that I have in my hands to hold
All the roads I’d never get to travel along
And the bumps I won’t fall on to clumsily
The road signs that I will never learn about
Settle a sense of profound regret in me
All those tall and lofty mountains that I
Dreamed of touching and feeling one day
Would vanish into thin air like a part of my
Imagination I could never have control of
As I desire to hold and smell all the scents
That surround us and preserving it in me
My head reminds me of my finite days
That will stop me from crossing all the
Places I wanted to on the maps to galaxies
I would never be able to wrap into my arms
Layer after layers of silence is wrapped upon
Me in the darkness of night to muffle my
Thoughts and wishes till there is nothing
Left in the air except a sense of numbness

My Dreamcatcher

Will you weave dream-catcher for me?
Made just the right way with the perfect
Willow hoop representing oneness of life
So that I would perhaps feel complete
A sinew to lay the webbing in between
Capturing my nightmares that keep me
Up at night wishing my demons would
Leave me at-least in the other world
An empty space en-route to the feathers
Bringing me smiles and peace as I close
My eyes and journey away in the realms
Perhaps protected under the shadow of
One of the oldest believes the world has
To offer I will find peace and sleep that
I crave for so desperately in emptiness
That takes over as the moon emerges
This circle of faith I can hold in my hands
Offers the little details if we pay attention
Stories and secrets it preserves within it from
Centuries so that one day someone will
Look at it and feel their heart strings being
Tugged by wonders a timeless ring can offer
