My mind kept asking,
“When will the world be at peace?”,
And, my soul replied.
“The morning after the night,
She and you come together,
Your world will be,
At peace”.

You are soft, bewitching and
limitless,
And I love you.
But then, you are also
harsh, fierce and spine-tingling,
And that’s what I think,
Is Adventure.

#631 — Contentment;

Drown me,
In the waters,
Of the Lake Ubari —
Let me live my life for just one
Moment.

#626 — Restlessness;

Enough
It is for you,
That he lives in your heart —
Say it then to his restless days,
And nights.

#622 — Rogue;

The rogue,
Who stole my heart,
Parts my eyelids and peeps,
Only to laugh at me and run,
Again.

#616 — Shame;

This shameless vessel,
Fashioned out of one handful,
Of scattered loam,
Ooze its fill of puff and hubris —
Yet, held in the embrace,
of its naked reality,
It trembles and crumbles,
To dust, in utter disgrace.
