We might have an entire life to travel the world, But nothing can match those 5 days . that we spent together, creating memories that would last forever.
I saw a boy as shiny as the Sun is in black clouds. My eyes couldn’t help lingering at his face, “Ah, my charming Prince once I wished to have.”
Words jumped loud in my mind and shushed in stillness when came on my lips. I said gently in a voiceless voice:
His spirit I wanted to kiss, his laughs I wanted to miss,
Tears in his eyes I could make them vanish,
Clutching his fingers pressing his palms into mine,
Soaking his slack and rapid breaths into mine
Savouring the intensity and taste of our Love;
Relieving it numerous times, the moments I had made love to him, the way no one will ever do or did.
I dream of us exploring the shores together and corners wherever the sky and land met.
Pair of twinkling eyes gazing into mine.
Soft-touch of his desire on my bare skin.
All this will always be a ‘dream’- a never fulfilling dream.
You know Prince charming, I would have done all of this to you; I would have surely dared.
“You and I and between us, someday, could Love exist?”
“Have you seen the shines of Sun falling for a Black Cloud?”
“No, they never do just like us, far from the land of possibilities, unimaginable in all ways, Poles apart to be together and miles apart to be in Love.”
All this for a brown burn of a mistake, I never wished to make but I never hid it but now I want to when I see you in the elevator every morning a scar on the left of my face- under my eyes stretched to my neck; a scar long-drawn like a dark art buried excruciatingly deep in my soul far more than my face.
I have the darkness of a scar-like the black cloud in the sky has.
So, Dear Prince Charming I know we have no words to say but
I can admire you quietly, no words needed just by standing with you in the elevator-
Your eyes bewitching and smile holds my breath, the way your mahogany brown hair waves around on moving your neck.
I crave your embrace desire the touch, envisioned our love story in my head.
All love fantasies I think sitting at my desk which I can never let you know.
You are pretty my boy; and pretty ones like you deserve better, much better than me.
But if someday this world fails you, and glow around you fades. Someday when time dissolves the beauty of faces; you will still be beautiful for me like as you are now; I will be here just like now when you will call my name.
Till then with an eternal wait and hopeless dream – I am here, at my desk, looking at you from the corner of my eyes- a fair Prince whom I cannot dare to Love anymore.
Pretty, Pretty….this world is not pretty.
I, an ordinary boy, whose appearance resembles a prince outside but I am just a boy alone and afraid. I know shiny appearances can cover but can’t change what is buried inside.
Some years have gone; I was ugly for the world Heavier in pounds but heavier was my heart. No one cared. No one dared. I was crushed into pieces the way the world looked at me and laughed.
All these pretty faces; no one bothered to ask me my alright and suddenly shedding some pounds and lightening my heart with remorse I am a pretty one.
Girls smile at me. They want to talk and hold hands.
Petty, I find all this petty.
The world embraces me and cheers for me now, but I don’t need it anymore. I needed it at that time when no one came.
I know this shiny world shines only on the outside and it no more attracts me. I am no substance that you could price on just on the layers my skin fold and smiles I fairly laugh. I see no one to love and laugh except that girl whom I see looking at me from the corner of her eyes:
She has beautiful brown hairs that roll on her cheeks. She looks quiet and smiles less, her hand moves abruptly on the keyboard and she keeps looking at that screen but in between, she looks at me from the corner of her eyes. She has speaking eyes and small nose and her skin is kissed by burning, a brown satin-like burn that flows through her cheeks to her neck. I keep looking at her in between shining beautiful people around that fire kissed girl. She distracts me; my beautiful distraction.
Someday when I will collect all my courage I will tell her looking into eyes that I want her to walk my side, my beautiful princess. I want her eyes to look at me and shine with happiness even if time change when our beauties fade. I see her in the elevator every morning; one day I will look into her and tell her you are gorgeous will you date me? I hope that day comes soon.
And one beautiful morning after several mornings, when the elevator stopped Prince charming saw fire kissed girl standing alone, piercing her deep eyes on his face, his feet stumbled looking at her beautiful eyes with nervousness but he didn’t stop that day and kept walking to her, till the door of elevator closed; two of them stood close alone in a moving rectangle going up and down like a swing.
When the elevator door opened the shine of Sun fell in love with a dark cloud.

As a mild breeze heralded the day
With tousled head and drowsy eyes
Free from care, I walked on my way
On the sun-kissed sky
I gazed at the soft clouds swirl
While the gentle wind stole its way
Through my unkempt curls
On the tender grass, my feet could feel
The wetness of the unblemished dew
Even as I was captivated
With the sweet scent of jasmines few.
I rubbed my eyes and glanced around
Seeking to deduce the culprit
That had made this conspicuous sound
Amid the leaves, on a tree far from me
I could now see unmistakably
A spider web, very immaculate
But it had within it, a prey, sadly
Oh! There struggled a beautiful butterfly
My heart cried at the very sight
Alas! Such a lovely creature
And such is its miserable plight
Against the ruthless grid
Struck its delicate wings
As it fluttered hard and hard
Enough to writhe my heart like strings
My hand arose at once
To free the butterfly pitiable
Of the trap it was resisting against
And grant it liberation from this trial
Nay, my reason hollered
Misled by allure you cannot be
Beautiful may be the butterfly
Was the spider not industrious you see?
The victim was duly its own
For all the perseverance it had
I had no grounds to intercede
Only that by the former I was enamored
I brought my hand closer to me
Pacing though now, on my way again
Not even once did I look back
I was unsure if I had been same.

I always thought life was Black and White.
There’s a good and a bad, a wrong and a right.
We don’t get time from our busy worlds,
To appreciate and watch the beauty unfurl;
The beauty of life, with all it’s shades:
There’s never a time that the colour fades.
Sometimes strangers come as angels in disguise
To show us that in reality, we live in a paradise.
Adversity too, has it’s own hue
Amaranth Pink, or perhaps a Palatinate Blue.
With Spring comes, a promise of sunshine,
This makes us forget how winter made us whine.
God gives us strength in mysterious ways
To endure the forlorn Winter days.
To appreciate life, one needs to live.
And perhaps, learn to forget and forgive.
From the ocean of colours: You can acquire,
The shade you love; Or most desire.
In a world of hatred and despair ,
Where there is no love or care;
Beware as the end is near,
For then you will be gripped by fear!
The sea levels are rising high,
It just seems that they would touch the sky!
And between all this commotion,
Is an infant laughing merrily;
The poles are melting day by day
Cause ever so scorching is even the morning sun’s ray
People are rushing here and there,
There’s a big flood coming, so BEWARE!
It is such a big massacre, slaughter everywhere
Believe me, it is such a scare!
Some are killed by the flood,
Others are being trampled upon by their own blood;
There is only one distinguished sound,
Of an infant laughing merrily!
Only one life left on Earth,
The cheerful infant, that little birth!
Not a scar on his delicate limbs,
Protected from all things grim;
Suddenly, he has the feeling of being picked up,
Being cuddled like a pup!
A spirit of power mighty,
Oh, he is the Great Almighty!
(The innocent infant playing with his mustache)
Thee asks” Why are you laughing at this splash?”
” Looking below I can see the entire world,
Such a secret has been unfurled;
Who doesn’t like to play with the water,
After all I am just a little totter”
God laughs and then cries,
Both disappearing in thin air,
A new world,

Still loving you.
I still love, I still care
I still admire, I still adore.
I know a tale, beautiful but doomed
That seemed so perfect once, but now flawed.
She was not like those alpha demi goddesses,
Yet I did fall for those fiery sparkle of her eyes.
She never promised me an eternity,
Yet I did fall for that ethereal innocence.
She had stabs, scars and flaws,
Yet her face glowed like a winter moon.
We were so close, yet miles apart
Our heartbeats synced, yet it broke
She was that rain, solemn and pure,
I were that broken shell, lone and scarred.
And every time we inched closer,
We were forced to be apart.
Once she took me with her,
And my eyes rained with love and cheer,
Not knowing that it was a faint silver line,
Which would soon vanish in thin air.
But the way she did hold me close
Closer to her profusely bleeding heart,
Is all I would ever need to live this life.
But no one believes this story of mine,
The most beautiful love story in time.
The best love stories are the imaginary ones, right!😊
Darling, you got into my veins!

Worry is so worrisome,
It creates stress we would want to run away from.
We worry over things big and small,
Oh! the bacteria in my food!!
Oh! the new gen blues!!
Oh! my friend sings so well,
and oh! my waist! It increases so in magnitude!
And we worry worry worry!
Every time I look at you,
The world turns upside down.
Maybe those finery words blemishes me into your loving heart,
Or maybe it’s the act of vision I lack…
Or maybe the lust for the life allures me to you.Read Further
