The Girl In The Alleyways

It is late past midnight

moonless night..

cloudless starry sky!!

deserted by all signs of life.

Its so cold the lake wished..

it could crumple up and sit beneath the whistling trees..

the feathers have all closed up..

just breathing with minimum air.

The lights of the buildings..

dimming down as she walks..

fine miniature voices hide themselves

from the unknown.

But a slender finery work of art..

streams her way through the silence..

seems as though its 12 in the noon..

warm and sunny like the midday sun!

Her eyes are glistening..

and it snot the there is none.

she is as plaintive as can be.

its the secretive glaze..beneath the hidden seriousness.

Her whole persona is so very mysterious..

not one not two…but many a charms..

tracing her identity to someone so apart.

So beautiful in her own ways..its difficult to draw.

Her golden hair flowing down..the only glisten in this moonless night.

only to highlight her broad shoulders..and exposing her svelte figure..

Adding to her preformed charm..

all this for barely a block distance of walk.

Thinking of somehow capturing that glaze gleam and charm..

and putting it in a box..then maybe..

she’ll notice my air..difficult as that maybe!

n maybe turn towards me for a inch in time.

I would hold her..captivate her..

try to tell how taken aback I am..

and that She..yes! herself..the girl in the dark abandoned alleyways..

just took me into a conversation…without words.

I know she wont say a word..

but fortune of mine that she might smile..

fortune that she may circle around..break the mystery that she is..

because she is not just another girl…the girl in the alleyways…

the dark abandoned alleyways…………


The First and Last Tear

Even though it is destiny
that brought us closer
it is time and love
that has kept us together.

In a relation of intimacy
so very close to each other
Within the realms of each others arms
embraced till end of time.

We have shared space and time
sometimes even stepped on boundaries
just for each other…
to keep that priceless smile..

It is almost a like a dream come true.
a bit of fantasy with a dash of reality..
but now after the path taken so far..
you are hesitating..

Hesitating to hold my hand any longer..
It instills fear into my eyes
how can you not see..
the uneasiness that i am hovering underneath..

It seems a candle was lit long ago
and now its melting away..
there was brightness all around…
and now there is an air of darkness.

It sends a shiver down my spine
every time i think about its edginess
the part of the world where you are not mine…
where my hand is empty..

I can feel the cold and dark spaces around me
as they encircle me….
Even though i know, there is nothing i can do about them…
As without you, they seem more powerful.

These confines and emptiness are approaching me
as you are letting go of me..
Its so slow that I can feel it..
like blood draining out of my veins.

So here I am..calling out to you one last time
To show you what you maybe losing..
the purest heart that will truly always be loving you..
A heart that assures unconditional love…

In the last few minutes of this separation,
i shed a tear not out of desperation
not out of pain, but only out of the hope that..
it might seep into your heart and reinfuse love…

From the moment the tear escapes my eye,
to the second it reaches my lips ….
i pray for a miracle..that will bring you back to me..
and keep you with me..

But it is only one tear that i will shed…
should be enough to awaken you..
more tears will only wash away my love with them..
So it is one and only one tear for you…
