WHo was he?


In search of love, one pleasant day,
He set forth there, where true love lay;
He’d sought its silky charming spray,
With restless calm, and fretless sway

His walk was neither fast nor slow,
With a longing sight and a warming glow;
In his every step – persistence showed,
The wisdom etched on his handsome brow


They followed him in passion’d ways;

 Invigor’d by his awesome grace,
Inspired by his restless chase;
Of true compassion, through the haze
The tinkle of his voce once heard,
 True passion and true love it stirred;
Like the dawning song of a Robin bird,
Like the stamp of love on a new heart – Seared!


He’s now long gone, but still well known,
For the path of love that he’d once shown;
That path is still unchanged: unprone,
Like a beam of light, in darkness, thrown . . . . . .


WEll, Any suggestions? who was he?

Where Is The Alarm Bell??

Where is the Alarm Bell?

Every day, We,
“Wake up” like Dead bodies
“Do” our daily duties,
“Stare” at heavenly beauties,
“Glare” at responsibilities!
“Feint” sorrow at others' worries,
“Moan” at our God Damn Deities!
“Sign up” with the devil’s treaties,
“Scoff” at aspiring newbies!

Every day, we Do Not,
“Smile” at stranger’s Faces,
“Cry” with genuine patience,
“Try” out new inclinations
“Resist” age old temptations,
“Pray” for liberation,
“Reach” new destinations,
“Praise” genuine deliberations,
“Weigh” ramifications,
“Teach” interesting notions

WHY??

Down and Out and back soon!

Hi Everyone,

    I've been quite busy the last few months. . . . first, there was this College Fest which needed handling, and just as that was coming to a very successful end, the exams sneaked  up on my like they always do. Needless to say, i've been pretty much offline in the last 2 months and more, only twittering occasionally to some of my fellow tweeters. :)

    I'd love to thank Vinay  (Leo) for helping me out and posting my works when I myself could not. Good friends are hard to come by in today's world, and its little things like these that remind you of that fact, don't they?

    It's been quite a while since I visited any of the blogs that i have become so very attached to over the last year. Most of you guys are probably quite mad at me for this.  . . .(as Farah was Oh! so kind to remind me the other day, by offering to wring my neck! Such a sweet gesture.... :D ) Don't get me wrong! I am sure I deserve that, as its really been that long.

    Well, heres the deal. I'll make a comeback on 20th of june, 2009, and i'll visit EACH AND EVERY BLOG I've missed out on so far. So please forgive me and  wish me luck,

Coming Soon,
 To a Blogsite Near you!

:)


till then heres what i think about the upcoming exams . . .

How Far Will You Go?

If your love was on the line,
Promises you had to keep,
If it was your truth, to shine,
And yet you sat to weep.

You tried some nifty tack,
To stem the teary flow,
You tried the best attack,
Without letting me know.

Your promises were dry,
Empty, unintended!
Your existence: a lie,
And your staunch stiff rules you mended!

At one crossroad of life,
If you had to let me go,
Answer me, as would a knife,
Just how far will you go?

Lost AGAIN


Lost in your thoughts, I roam, insanely
In search of your sights, that looks unlikely
Looms ahead of me a future that is just as dark
Just as dark as my past, as lonely and stark

Doomed for all eternity, to miss your caress,
Fooled by my fate, into a life of distress
Tried and tested by a jury of ill luck
I gave up my stance, turned into a sitting duck

How is it that you came to be with me?
Was it destiny, or purely a mystery?
Why were you by my side at all?
Was it for me? Coz I was afraid to fall?

Did you come just to leave me later?
See how I’d wither? Become a hater?
Are you like one of those winds of fate?
With me for a while, and a little too late?

Published by Leo on behalf of RiverSoul

Ascension... To the Heavens!

I raised my sights, a bit too late
Disentangled the self, from the ropes of fate
Tired, unearthly and filled with hate,
I start my climb to thee

As I float high above, the skies so vast
Blue birds, they speed into naught, so fast
In ascension, they remind me, of my true past,
As I rise High o’er the sea!

I see you now, on your golden throne,
From the cell wherein you’ve had me thrown
I now lament, “If only I’d known!!”
That this was meant for me!

My Heaven, My Hell, is all but one
I’m fried and strung, for the sin’s I’ve done
Now I repent, but time stops for none,
And I Struggle to break free



From point of view of a sinner, The world looks pretty pessimistic.

Note: RiverSoul is not back from his blogging break yet. It could be a while before he returns. This post is at the behest of me, Leo, to update Silent Recollections. It has been posted by me on his behalf, and I will be posting his works due to his lack of time and resources. Though the posting is by me, Leo, the work is an original RiverSoul creation. 

Fearless, Thou Shalt Be

In the wake of yawning decadence,
In the arms of dreadful pestilence
In the eyes of hopeless impudence,
Fearless Thou shalt be!
When the time is ripe to cast the sword
When the time is prime to spread the word,
When evil’s ugly head is reared,
Fearless Thou shalt be!
When it’s time to do the best things right,
When it’s time to hold your stance and fight
When you don’t look back to dread your plight,
Fearless Thou shalt be!
When evil’s deed is unvanquished
When all good seems to have perished
When good almighty’s left ravished
Fearless Thou shalt be!
For darkness comes before the light
Victory comes as the hero’s right
Tarry not, Stand up and fight!
Fearless Thou shalt be!

That Which Wouldn't Mend

I wished for a friend in the darkest times,

A friend I wished to be,

As I drowned in my own fateful rhymes,

My thoughts weighed in on me


I felt too lost; too numb, I knelt,

I felt just as lonely,

As lonely as she must have felt,

The day she had left me


She’s Gone! She’s Gone! I said and wept,

My tears just knew no end,

My cries were soft, yet so well kept,

In a heart that would not mend


Time  thus passed like a silent curse,

My cries, I stifled out,

But things soon went from bad to worse,

My cries had turned to shouts


Maybe that’s why my pain was heard

And someone did respond,

Just when I thought my end had neared,

My life seemed like reborn!


I opened out, like I never could,

She made me feel consoled,

She watched me, like a mother would,

She watched my life unfold


Her open arms I sought and found,

I rested there and cried,

She brought me back to my rebound

Her love, personified!


She found in me what I had lost

My vision she restored,


What I thought could never mend,

With love, it had been cured


“She’s now too far” some say to me,

But that is so untrue,

For when I close my eyes and see,

I find her, true and true.
Dedicated to Nidhi, on her Birth Day

Happy Birth Day, Girl!

Why?

Where is the Alarm Bell?
Every day, we,
“Wake up” like Dead bodies
“Do” our daily duties,
“Stare” at heavenly beauties,
“Glare” at responsibilities!
“Feint” sorrow at other’s worries,
“Moan” at our God Damn Deities!
“Sign up” with the devil’s treaties,
“Scoff” at aspiring newbies!

Every day, we Do Not,
“Smile” at stranger’s Faces
“Cry” with genuine patience,
“Try” out new inclinations
“Resist” age old temptations,
“Pray” for liberation,
“reach” new destinations,
“Praise” genuine deliberations,
“Weigh” ramifications,
“Teach” interesting notions



Why?

Do You Remember?

Do you remember, my dearest friend?
That September day?
The day when rain Gods sorely wept,
That day you crossed my way?

Hark back to those midsummer rains,
Which soaked us through and through!
Those lovely drops of dancing grains,
Our way that nature threw!

Do you remember our one resolve?
“To stick” didn’t we intend?
As well as grains of salt dissolve,
Their way in water’s blend?

Aren’t you reminded of those times?
Those times we tried to fight?
Those times we ended up on knees,
And praised each other’s might?

You must remind yourself of me,
Even if I’m now long gone,
For each is on the other’s side,
Right where we do belong . . .

Through the mirror, Dawned My Day

I searched for you in the darkest corners,
I sought your warmth even in coldest coffers,
I longed for that ever slightest glimpse of your light,
Without ever stopping, never doubting my weak eyesight,
I made my way, through forests of fate,
I made my way to you, killing many monsters of hate
I paved the path of my righteous haste,
My struggle for you- I would never let it waste!
At last I reached a clearing in my life,
Where all could be seen, all but my strife,
I saw over there, on a hill you await,
Overseeing every step towards you I take
I climb up high, to see bask in your unbidden glory,
I sit beside your shadow, to reveal my sorry story
I look at you then, and realization dawns!
That you knew my story, as and when it was born!
You are the mirror of life, my inspiration,
You are the river of strife, my river of perspiration
I saw myself in you, my future and my past,
The light shone right through, revealing it to me,
at last!

Lost in your Thoughts

Lost in your thoughts, I roam, insanely
In search of your sights, that looks unlikely
Looms ahead of me a future that is just as dark
Just as dark as my past, as lonely and stark

Doomed for all eternity, to miss your caress,
Fooled by my fate, into a life of distress
Tried and tested by a jury of ill luck
I gave up my stance, turned into a sitting duck


How is it that you came to be with me?
Was it destiny, or purely a mystery?
Why were you by my side at all?
Was it for me? Coz I was afraid to fall?

Did you come just to leave me later?
See how I’d wither? Become a hater?
Are you like one of those winds of fate?
With me for a while, and a little too late?

P.S.: Advanced Happy Republic Day To Y'All!!

For You, I Pine

How much more harsh have I got to be?

Why does your heartless soul not see?

I’ve tried my best to get you right,

But as ever you find no love in me



I talked the talk that leads us here,

My mind’s too numb; too cold; unclear,

We have to part that’s what you choose,

But you left me with a haunting fear



How can I not remember thee?

Your wistful smile, my heartfelt glee;

Your twisted locks that ‘twined my heart,

And yet you tore my heart off me



My life is hell, without your smile,

It hurts inside, for the loss is mine,

I want you back, don’t you see the truth?

You’re the one I crave; you’re the one I pine. . . .













Sin Filled . . . .

Hot and steamy, I stand before you,
Smooth and creamy, like you wanted me to,
You stare at me, with longing lusty eyes,
Your demeanor too numb, as though made of ice!

You’re coming very close, swooping down on me,
You revere me, like a rose, come! Come and pick me!
I’m burning with all this heat, with liquid heat within,
With careful delicacy, sin-filled to the brim!


You take me with your hands, with moves: slow, Deliberate!
Your eyes scrutinize me, with love; so considerate!
I know that you’ll leave soon, having had your fill,
But not before you croon, your cravings unfulfilled!


You’ve almost drained me out, with your loving lips,
My time is running out, like one of those will-o-wisps
I leave you satiated, alert and enticed, for,
I’m your cappuccino, your mistress well disguised!

:D



Gotcha!!

Arms Wide Open

When the fruits of my repentance,
Are ripened well by time,
When all my faults and errors
Are tested and retried,
I’ll hold my arms wide open,
Welcoming your stride

When all the drops of water
Have dried up from the seas,
With all my sins forgiven,
I’ll do just the things I please,
I’ll hold my arms wide open,
In honor of your pleas!

When love has once more blossomed
In your heart for me,
Your blindness will have lessened
Enough for you to see,
I’ll hold my arms wide open,
For you’ll come back to me.

A Promise Kept

Hey There People!!
:)
The story Below is my Entry to the Ascension Short Story Contest taking place at Clarity of Night.
Would Love to have your Feedback on it
:)
A Promise Kept
  I rushed to the ICU ward of the Hospital as fast as my legs could carry me. It was almost daybreak. Twenty minutes ago, I had received the doctor’s call, confirming that the time had now come. That which I had been dreading; that which I had hoped would never happen; had now come to pass.
Like the dog afraid of his own shadow, I ran towards her.
    The ward came to view. Like a pale ghost, I slowed down to a standstill. The door was ajar. She was looking right at me.
    She seemed to be looking right through me, as though she knew of every thought and emotion tormenting my mind. She had that smile on her face; that carefree smile that even months of chemotherapy had failed to wipe out. Her smile seemed to be telling me something.
But I just couldn’t place it.
     The doctor came out just then. With an apologetic voice, he said “I’m so sorry, son. She succumbed just a few minutes ago. A brave fighter. God rest her soul.”
He walked away.
Terror tore at me and my insides seemed to shrivel up.
“That means . . . . . her eyes . . . . . Oh God!”
She knew I’d come. She kept waiting for me till the very end. Tears leaked out of my eyes. But I held strong. I kept her promise.  I never cried.
And I realized that she knew it.
 Her smile told me that.

Here's the Link to my story at the Clarity of Night

Lost . . . .

Hello there, guys!!
A small note bfore continuing. . . .
As many of you very well know, I have been experimenting quite a lot now in these hols with PhotoShop. Fiddling, I like to call it.
Well, now I have gone on and decided to do something of it. Make it a little bit more productive. I have started a blog for my little amateur artworks, and this blog is now ready to go public.
The blog is called iMaze…....
I request you guys give it a shot and do comment

It has been a while since I ever posted a poem online, so here’s one.



It’s been a while since I saw her smile,
And dance in harmony,
I’ve seen her cry her pretty eyes out
One time too many
Her Love she lost in saddened plight,
As evil fate would see,
I saw her tears run down her cheeks
In silent testimony
“She’s healed by now” I hoped to be
But that’s untrue I see
For she has shunned us me out her life,
Like a pecker does it’s tree
It hurts me too to know her plight
And still sit quite carefree
It hits me when I see her smile
While inwardly she bleeds
I hope she finds herself again,
Her old spirited smile
For that’s what I patiently wait
Her love could go a mile!



Dont even ask where that came from!
:P
Just me and my silly rhymes. . . . I guess  . . .
P.S.

For Her Right

Sifting through forsaken lands,
I've found a gemstone bright,
For her true rights she chose to stand
And fought against her plight


Her soul redeemed, at morrow's hands
Her spirit set aflame,
For freedom, for her life she stands
She's forgone the old blame game


My most respect she draws from me,
I seek her kindly grace,
Her lively spark, much means to thee,
Her ever-loving embrace.....


PS this is an old poem i wrote in my 6th grade. Perusing through my old diary.
