Melancholic Buzz


On the smooth,straight road I walk,

Oblivious to the sounds around

Like a cloud that is untied,

With my eyes fixed on the horizon.

I think of things deep,

Run through our talks

Living in my own world

Of love and only love

Facing the world was made easy

And so was living life

I could take on an army

With you beside me

And then you went

Out of the blue

Without telling a word

With no glimpse of remorse

And here I am now

Starting things afresh

Humming a mild tune

In all melancholy

I look beside me

To stare at emptiness

I give a wry and dry smile

And take my first step

A step to discover life

A step to embrace failures

A step onto that unending path

With all my grace and all the poise

Where the path leads,

I know not

When I shall return

I shall not say

A steely resolve and

The value of life

Alone remains as

My promise to you.

The Earthy Tone


Living her life for many years now,

Saying her prayers to the Gods up above

Each day passes by in the blink of an eye,

Unaware of the typhoon her mind is caught by.

Born as an angel and grew up as a maid,

Through the pits and slush she had to wade

The kohl-lined lashes and dark, round curls,

Dusky skin and those white lil pearls.

The jungles of the city and those wily people

Gave her a high and never a scare.

Her springy step and stunning smile,

Disarmed many , Oh! This isn’t fair.

Not one did know what she was in real,

Battered and bruised, blemished and betrayed.

Neither did she care, for she knew it all,

The people who smiled and those who flayed.

Life goes on, she thought

And never anything she sought.

Resilience was her power,

And she will never bow down ever.

With her head held high, she walked,

With all the symphony she spoke.

Never have I seen an angel before,

Ethereal beauty that made my spirits soar!
