if only
you could see
what I see in you

hear what
I cannot say

you are
what no words
can contain

like all that is sacred
treasured, in my heart
you remain

you are..
you are to me
more than a story
more than a memory

In a sacred moment
I tasted your presence
to the depths
of my soul
and all I ever knew
melted away

time stopped
and that moment lasted
for eternity

in your touch
you showed
what it means
to feel,
in your embrace
what it means
to belong

enwrapped in you
snow flakes
started to burn softly
and I forgot
where I ended
and you began

lost in the day
a thought of you
brushed by
like a gentle breeze
and butterflies
started fluttering
under my skin
in anticipation.

Haunted
by the memories
of an ancient love
I look for you

hidden
from everyone
with me, in my heart
I carry you.

Untold Stories

Posted on Updated on

Now and then I wash upon

The shores of untold stories,

Begging to be told.

And as I crashed

Upon this sandy shore

Of a broken pair of lovers

I tried my best to cling onto

And grab as many grains as I could.

Before the waves pulled me back again

And the story faded away.

This pouring rain reminds me of you –
kisses of life softly planting on my skin
at a thousand places.

memories
what are they
a handful of ashes
tossed in the air
slowly fading
into evening mist

untouched melody

Posted on Updated on

there is pain
that lies hidden away
the pain whose source is unknown,
where it originates, why it is there
an almost unbearable heaviness
as if a huge tragedy transpired before
perhaps in some other lifetime
as if memory of the experience
has faded away
but the agony, the pathos still remain
a sorrow I can drown myself in
a loss, a separation, a heartache
that consumes me at times
and stirs up the unknown,
the unanswered questions,
the endless pain
that flows so smoothly
when little things, their deeper perception
spoken words, their hidden silences
a knowing touches me so
it is often then
that a liberating realization,
a strange yet familiar feeling
breaks open the shell
that encloses my understanding
of the world around me
of the depths of my own soul

rubescent nostalgia

which dark waters am I treading,
with this hallowed crimson heart?
following the whispers in the scattered wind,
uttering prayer from my quivering lips

how will I speak of this enchanting tale,
whose splendour lies hidden in its roots?
of love unspoken, songs unheard and melody untouched

planting these silent kisses,
you play with my mind;
with your endearing invisible touch,
you comfort my most aching parts

your burning memory ignites a flame within,
and flowers begin to grow
from this forever bleeding wound

healing light

the wind blows, sweeping with it memories,
stirring all thats been buried within
the thread slowly pulls loose
and the pile of dead leaves starts to break away

I give in, standing in silence
letting go of the fragile thoughts,
releasing the shadowed dreams
letting the feeling pass

there is yet another sky, another shore,
another reason to keep a beating heart
distant from warm comfort of tears,
away from the agony of an infatuated lover

sometimes we need to be protected from what we want
for a deeper need to be fulfilled
