PROSE AND POETRY

Let Her

She will once again tread
into a far-flung land
in which she alone will escape
from the vulnerability of her labyrinth.

No bags to be packed.
No luggage to mind about.
Neither travel pillows nor comfy scarves will count.

She will once again take a trip with nothing
and no one to load on her back.
She will take it light and slow.

If and only if you will let her to.
If and only if you will let her go.

Just a Minute

Just a minute
You uttered it on the phone
I was on the other line
And I used to hang on

Just a minute
And you talked to me again
Telling me soothing words
Like ” You’ll never wait in vain”

Just a minute
It took you for a while
I patiently held on
Just to make you smile

But hours and days passed
And you never again called
Missing your favorite line
Just a minute

Pen and Paper

She sat across the scenery of the golden sunset.

Her hair in blonde reflecting the tangerine light of the day with its farewell. With her was her drafts of poetry, telling about fairies and dragons and castles with no kings and queens. With her was her pens in half empty and half full, carefully kept as her weapon in a battle that knows no words to be spoken. With her was her blank sheets of papers that are willing to cuddle the ink she’ll spill, the stains of her feelings,  ready to catch even the drops of her tears and who’ll never get mad when crumpled or thrown. With her was her heart that is so generous to be placed on every piece that she’ll write, in every line that speaks about a life once lived, verses about people and her journey of places with her footprints.

Till the dark hours came and she still sat there.

She sat across the panorama of  silver shimmering stars.

You see?  She’ll never  sit there  alone as she was.

Timid

Her head bent down
As he passed by
She took a sigh
And secretly smiled

He glanced at her
As she looked down
How he wished
She would smile

The thoughts of him
Sends her shiver
When she shouldn’t
It  flutters
It lingers

 Unrequited love
sometimes
is a step away
from letting
two pairs
of eyes
do the talking.

Fallacy

I fell in love
with rules, laws
and conditions

With if and only if
With must and should

With in case and supposed to be
With necessities and obligations

Circus Time

The maroon curtain falls
heartbeats juggle
fast

Breath-taking trapeze acts
mind-boggling
thoughts

Sizzling acrobats on show
Blushing face
glow

Excitement in music
filling the heart
cadence

A Story To Tell

It’s been so long
That I dreamed of him
Neglecting the food I gave
Rejecting my smile and wave

It’s been awhile
That whenever I pass by
Eagerly want to know his name
Seeking answers with the queues in my brain
