The Man & Magic !

MJ

Words fail to express

What I feel,

My heart would race

Just to get a glimpse of your face,

For hours I would dream

And thy thoughts caress…

The fall of curl on eyes,

The sultry style, the sweet smile –

Would keep me awake all night.

The tilt of hat, the tip toe step,

The moonwalk that set the stage ablaze,

The quick spin and quivering voice

Left me with no choice

But to fall in love with you…

Though the world may call me a fool

I know my love is true!

Now it hurts to see your feet at rest

And as you lay motionless,

To another realm your soul transcend,

Waiting with your arms stretched

To take me with you, beyond life and death…

At the break of dawn

I wake up to your song,

Across my reach you stand –

Only to disappear like the mirage on sand;

My eyes moisten at the forlorn attempt

My bubble hopes burst, my heart saddened

To lose you; and just when I think this is the end,

I feel entrapped and surrounded

By a musical maze…

My sight haze

To find myself in this strange place,

Is that you I see at a distance

With your wings wide spread?

Encircled by “Kings on the throne”,

Have you found your real home

In this heavenly abode?

Have you found your childhood

And your long lost youth?

As you pour melody from your lyre,

The heart’s abyss swells with deep desire

To be swept by your tune forever and ever…

My head feels dizzy,

As I’m drunk to the lees

With your mysticalw power

So I lay me down to sweet slumber;

And now I can sleep and sleep indeed –

As I know you are resting in peace

In God’s safe arms,

Where nothing can touch you, no one can harm.

Like this desolate night dense,

You shall remain in me in silence;

My life, sorrows and dreams intense –

You shall forever entice with your magic spell

And fill me with your songs sweet and fresh!

A Searching

Home of my own

I have been on the run,

For what it seems – forever,

I am searching –

Looking everywhere

For a home to call my own,

Where I can lay my head

In the warmth of your caress

For days, without fear,

Knowing that you care…

In the midst of laughter

Of loved ones long lost!

I have been searching –

For these little treasures,

A longing that never dies

Oh! I am so tired…

Looking and searching

Beyond the rights

Beyond the wrongs,

Where lines of hatred

Are blurred …

Just a realization prevails

Of death and loss,

Of pain and sorrow,

They belonged to them

They belonged to us;

A place remains

Where sweet peace

Is brought on the wings of wind

That belongs to them

And belongs to me,

Where the land is lush green

Not crimson from trampled lives…

A land where love there is still,

Out beyond the wires

That make hope bleed.

A home for you.

A home for me.

And for all humanity.

 

 

 

 

 

Starry Eyes

A little space, a little warmth,

A little love, that’s all

You ever wanted

From this world …

Starry eyes leaped with gladness

Sparkled like twinkles

On crystal clear night.

A touch, just a touch of tenderness

Is all you ever wanted;

But, no, my love,

You were a fool

To not know –  

This world is a ‘poor’, ‘poor’ place …

Here diamonds glitter and drinks flow wild

Gold shimmers on skin so white,

Money turns to smoke on dance floors,

And yet, my love, you should have known,

This is a ‘poor’, ‘poor’ world.

All the diamonds and all the gold,

All the money that flows

Is too little to buy for you

That only thing

You ever wanted starry eyes –

‘Love’ … is too precious

In this world so poor!

So, goodbye my love …

I am letting you go

So you can find in another place

All that you ever wanted..

Where the stars of the sky

Will shine bright in your eyes

Where, love will be all around

To wrap you in its sweet arms,

And sing you lullabies !

 

Heart of Thorns

Thorn

Ripples of fear,

Grips the heart.

Skin wrinkles and tears apart

By trauma,

Oh! The trauma of lashings

Of the heart of thorns;

Clean and smooth

The beauty on surface-

Honeysweet talks

Of empty nothings.

But look! Deep in the darkness

Of the hollow dark abyss

Sweetness boils green and frothy

Venom spurts from eyes so evil

Burning the heart of gold –

The bright yellow slowly in silence

Turns red, the color of blood

Innocence cowers away, dies a slow death.

The devil laughs aloud – victory is here at last….

Its heart of thorns gleams with pride!

Feelings of evil remain

Slyly hidden

Behind smiles charming,

And talks so sweet;

The world moves on

Rolling in green venom,

Reveling in joys of

Selfish desires;

And nothing remains –

No one stays

To lament the loss of innocence

That breathed its last

In a lonely cold corner,

Terror stricken, all by itself

Defeated by the cruel heart of thorns.

Travel & Love

kl

If there is any place

I would rather be,

It is everywhere

Or no where will I be.

Snowy white peaks

Verdant lush of greens,

Cool caressing winds

Rolling surfs,

Lakes so pristine..

Soft sands slipping under feet

Ships on deserts

With Bells tinkling

Shiny sky,

Teasingly twinkling

Nostalgic history

And winding cobbled streets

Leading through time to

Saddened walls of ruins;

Smells and sights so intriguing,

Warmth of strangers touching,

Call of the distance

Tugging at heart

Time and again…

My feet will never stop treading

All paths and places unseen

But ever if my heart stops

Or feet never move

I will lie there –

Upon the fields of green

Under the icy blue of the skies

The soft white pearls

In my eyes

Till I am wrapped in

The neverness of everlasting life.

Hollow of my Heart

images

Years went by

Days slipped away

Hours tip toed slowly out

Minutes bid farewell

As seconds died a slow death.

Springs came by,

Summers burnt in fiery rage,

Rains soothed parched heart

Autumns wilted fresh wounds

Winters numbed the pain.

And yet,

They won’t fade…

Yearnings –

Of your touch,

To hear your loving call again,

To hold you in my arms,

To feel you near

To know you are safe,

Though so far away.

I know, yes, I know..

Nights will wane,

Dawn will be here once more

Many more springs, summers, rains and cold

Will come and go;

But memories of you

Will remain,

In the hollow of my heart,

Preserved with tender sweet love,

By the promise of tomorrow.

A Waiting

waiting

 

The heart moved slow

Losing its beat,

A song of life

Accepting defeat,

The mind could not feel

The rhythm of its surroundings

Visions were blurred

But something far far away

Strained its strings…

A waiting for the last song

Touch of the known

Voice of someone close

What is it? Who was it?

The eyes could not tell

The ears never heard

A smile was not formed

By the curling of lips

Joy could not find voice

Nor was there a stir …

Only the soul felt the warmth

Of that known soul

Bound alone by the music of love,

Of faith & trust.

A little sign found its way –

An great effort was made

 To show happiness that was known

Someday, in a land too far away.

A ripple of soothing calm

Drowned all sorrows

No grief touched

Only a release from

The ties on earth;

A love was felt,

No pains remained – 

And yes, at last

A waiting will be no more…

At last amidst the heaven above

A home was found.
