Spurious Connections

Vows, promises, love, loyalty
Are no more than empty talk
No one is yours in this world, these
Fake relationships could take a walk

With a messiah in tow, you would
Still not be salvaged, despite the claims
Your own flesh and blood shall
At last, consign you to flames
Eventually, the one soaring in the skies
Will coalesce in soil, notwithstanding acclaims

They would stick together, in happier times
Only to abandon you while in distress
Professing false allegiance, people at large
Will themselves, your emotions transgress
Those out to deceive God, in manipulating
Humans never shall remorse express

Heart’s Lament

On the path of misery
The one who abandoned me
Why shouldn’t the world
Accuse you of treachery

Leading on through fake dreams
May someone upon you cheat
Let your heart too
Like a mirror shatter
In a fashion similar to mine.
The one to incinerate
Every desire of mine

In copiously flowing tears
May you drown
Go away, the nemesis of love
Let the shore of desires
Never get to be in your grasp
The one to rock my boat
by raising a storm in the heart

In every alley, jilter
You gain notoriety
May you yearn for love
In every gathering
Yet run into lonesomeness
The one to make me
A portrait of sadness

A Decree of Destiny

It has to do with destiny, have none
To hold grouse against, neither blame to toss
The one to walk two steps along
That companion never did stumble across

Wonder at those blessed with happiness
One of a kind to whom amity did befit
My dreams like delicate petals lay shattered,
For love never blossomed, perhaps it was beyond the remit.

Peculiar seems this juncture, where have I arrived?
Everyone appears alien to me here.
Whom do I confide woes in, nobody would pay heed,
Conjecture of hope is a fallacy sheer.

Hoping someone would reach out or
Give-a-shout, patiently I stood around
Inebriation held me together in life, since
Fidelity, friendship, love bequeathed no rewards abound.

A Journey Cut Short

You and I till yesterday, as companions
Were inseparable at heart
What transpired in the journey today
That did us apart?

Though my heart fumes
Yet remaining silent is the aim,
I am not the one to complain about
For that matter, attribute blame.
How is it that the desires, yours and mine
Got crumbled and could never align

Wonder why the darkness never sheds light 
Till miles ahead, no imminent brightness is in sight, 
How did this dark-night come to life?
Causing an uncalled for strife

As much as I want to depart from your world
The more my love for you gets unfurled.
Our dreams that once got fructified 
Are now holding my hands tied

The proclamation that in death too
You shall always be by my side
At every juncture of life,
hand in hand stride
Why then, amidst our journey 
You chose to walk away and spurned me

Divine External Peace

Peace is the ultimate matter of the heart, not a product of machines. Peace can only rest on the foundation of empathy, mutual love and concern for all. Peace is the ultimate happiness. It is the music of life for it is god manifested. Peace is the essence of life. It is a symbol of nobility and greatness and strength of mind and source of all noble thoughts. Those who cannot experience peace also fail to realise bliss. Learn to imbibe peace within. Dive into the ocean of unabated peace.

Try doing this to attain peace. Sit quietly, closing your eyes in solitude. Keep out flickering thoughts and reflect and pray in the following manner. Thus the life being wasted without experiencing ultimate bliss ? Now only you can lead me towards your path.  All my deeds are bondages, to taste the sweet nectar of your love and happiness.

Please accept my prayers. Help me plunge into the divine ocean of your love and bless me with your grace. Bless me such that my life becomes meaningful. My wavering mind keeps me wandering forever, remaining attached to this mundane world, suffering pain in the pursuit of happiness. Bless me with strength, devotion and love. Take away my conceit. I seek your refuge. I do not pray for material attainments but, bless me with the divine wisdom.

Do find time to contemplate. Prayer is not a time bound process? Let it be a perpetual state. Let your life blossom, let your every deed be guided by his thought. Do not do any work in haste. Ensure that you carry out your work with a calm and selfless attitude. Work done with patience proves to be most efficient.

Amorous Glances

With a sense of guilt
A demure glimpse meets her eye
Causing a flutter of the heart
At an age so ripe

Statuesque in stature and persona
Exuding oodles of charm
In exchanging fleeting glances
With her, I saw no harm

With equal panache she carries
A sporty look and traditional style
Rendering the air with exuberance
Her distinct voice makes my day worthwhile

Barely does the heart gets transfixed
Like a moth to a flame
Unless the magnetism is genuine
Desire to get consumed, you can’t quite tame

Throw caution to the winds
A call rings in my ears
But the mind never lets loose
The leash out of fear

I introspect on the disparities
Looming large, that sets us apart
All aspects of which seems blasphemous
Even while visualising a relationship to kick-start

Gone are the days to evince amorous interest
Though a hard fact to swallow, acknowledge I do
And lower my gaze when she crosses path
Not to go the route deemed taboo
