The Ripple Effect

Like a ripple, the heart has just felt a surge,
A whiff of fresh air perhaps has caused this scourge
Somewhat delicate in disposition, I am too
Moreover, this hurt is still anew
There is commotion in the cockles of the heart
As if a wall had fallen apart
Interest in this teeming world appears to abate
What is amiss, yet I fail to relate
Amid the archipelagos of memories, in spate
Your voice even now seems to resonate
In dark alleys of the town
Life in your quest still looks around
Good times shall usher in your life too
There’s a lifetime ahead, don’t rue

Dissipating Memories

Memories tend to get effaced
Despite being so intricately laced
A spatter of amnesia each passing day
Lashes the recall, to drift away

Time does cope with emotional healing
Life organically assuages hurt feelings
Never affording a moment static
Its essence remains truly enigmatic

Guilt then quibbles with the mind
Of shallow affection during lifetime remind
Let alone being beholden till eternity
A passing thought over time becomes a rarity

Buried in deeply dug narrow trenches
Where isolation from their kin wrenches
The departed hopes, someone from the clan drops by
To pay homage and their longing mollify

Lost in the worldly charm
Call of final journey rings no alarm
By acts of ingratitude, fate we all seal
Forgetting, every mortal shall pass through same ordeal

Time certainly is the biggest healer
To this chugging capsule, here’s my feeler
Let the pain of parting from our ancestors
Linger forever, so that reminiscences never fritter
