A feeling so hollow,

That’s hard to swallow

Engulfs my being

Leaving no clue of what it is seeking


Pervading silence all around

Adds to the confusion abound

As though put in a quarantine

By folks I call mine


How could one not form a connect

Or make no effort to resurrect

The crumbling charm of togetherness

Despite a bond so deep and measureless


Schisms keep lingering, unless you let go

The need to pander to the ego

Sane does recognise the bliss ahead

Unless their emotions are dead


My heart wails for the years lost

In vagaries of moods carelessly tossed

Instead of a chance to script cherished moments

Had it dawned to figure, what negativity foments?


It’s too late in the day

To expect amends along the way

Power struggle has a tendency to hold sway

For those hooked, to remain in the fray


Vacillating mind craves to perhaps fill the void

With harmonious coexistence and altercations avoid

Would it be an overreach to long?

To someone in spirit and soul belong


My Hearts Rendition

Oh god, why have you put me in a spot

I craved for an ideal friend, not a bundle of haught

Composed, sensitive, matured with a synchronized thought

These were the attributes in him, I sought

Aberrations of his mind, makes me distraught

With unpredictable mood swings, he is fraught

In his rage, stoic silence and indifference, often I am caught

Unable to grasp where his temperament could be slot

I deliberate over his gamut of emotions, too often

Hoping time will mend his ways, long gotten

Many sequels of such dramatics unfold, ugly and rotten

His lamenting showdown, ultimately makes my stance soften

Implications of severed relations, knows not my friend

Squabbling habitually, no sane person would ever recommend

I exhort, taking differences too far results in strife

May be he interprets this, as an occurrence rife

I am no saint, nor do I seek perfection

Do not construe this as a complaint, it’s my hearts rendition

Only a small wish, here I would like to mention

Bestow harmony in our friendship, with your divine intervention
