Wake up, to the sound of love calling

Wake up, to the sound of love calling
The rustling leaves and the dew falling
Wake up from your dreams of wild nights and sandy shores
For my beating heart calls
Its every rhythm racing to match yours
What do you see when you fall asleep?
Hopes and wishes that could never be?
As i sit by watching you lie in peace
I wonder, what makes you such
So calm, so serene, a glow lining your face
Take me along to that world of yours
Where i could be a part of you and you a part of me
Take me to the expanse of your universe
Where you walk so bold and free
For out here i feel all alone
Watching the shimmering light of the day
Slowly brighten the place where you lay
Sleep for as long as it takes
For your heart to find its tranquil pace
Fear not, have hope and you’ll see
Dreams are just realities that yet couldn’t be
But when your dream world suddenly shatters
And a dark gloom lays all to waste
When you feel despair crawl through your sleep
A nightmare following you like a ravaging storm
Your heart clenched, your soul caged
When you feel helpless, unable to move
Just open your eyes and to your dreams say goodbyes
Wake up, for ever watchful i lie besides
To banish your evils and lay waste to your dark sides
Leave behind your deep slumber
No matter how difficult it might seem
It’s time to make your wishes come true
Wake up, its never too late
Out here i lie in your wait
Wake up, to the sound of love calling
The rustling leaves and the dew falling

A lullaby I’ll hum

Sleep my love.
Be gone to the dream world.
Of sparkling stars and milky moonlight.
To lighten your dark night.
Sleep my love.
Punch your pillow.
Cuddle your bear.
For watchful eyes see and ears hear.
No harm shall befall you.
No hurts come.
Sleep my love.
A lullaby I’ll hum.
Sail through the misty skies.
Hold on to the mast tight.
Dont be afraid if the night owl cries.
For I’ll watch over, the whole dark night.
Drink from the calm sweet waters.
Swim across the wide craters.
That line the night moon.
And when you feel all alone and lost.
Hear my voice and follow its tone.
Let it guide you back to your home.
Sleep my love,
A lullaby I’ll hum

The man in the mirror


Look in the mirror and tell me what you see
Who you are or who you wanna be?
Do you see all your flawed sections?
Or one being made of perfect imperfections?
Look closely my dear and don’t just see

Look deep in those unmoving eyes
The gates to the center of your soul
They reveal a kind, gentle self
Shrouded by a stern heartless mask
Look beyond the layers behind which you hide

Listen to the sound of your unmoving lips
They tell a tale of a beautiful chaos
Of the ditches you fell, the peaks you rose
Hear hear they speak, of dreams and hopes
Somethings overtime, you seem to have lost

Feel the rise and fall of your chest
Feel the beats of your heart that never rest
It yearns for a love, a never ending care
But do you know for whom it waits?
You, who stands before, with his true self bare

Happy Valentine’s Day


It all started that one day
When you suddenly crossed my way
Leaving behind a trail of your rosy smell
Which rung inside my head, a bell
I lost my senses, engrossed in you
That was the day my heart was stolen too

I waited everyday for you to pass by
Hoping to get the courage to say Hi
But my tongue locked itself every time
My throat felt like it had swallowed lime
My hands went all sweaty
Although the matter was rather petty

I don’t remember when we first talked
Just that alongside me you walked
The laughs that day you gave me
Were all I ever wanted to hear and see
That moment my happiness knew no bounds
As if my missing part had been found

Time flew by, the days seemed so few
With each moment our feeling for each other grew
It was like we were meant to be one
And without you that could never be done
Fate and destiny played their respective parts
Helping us in joining our two hearts

Many things passed between us unsaid
An invisible bond formed in our head
I still remember the first time, we dated
Those clumsy waiters you really hated
All that I cared that day
Was you and me would never be parted away

I want to pore out my heart for you
But time does not allow me to do
I am dying to tell how much I love
Perhaps I should give that task to a dove
For now all I want to say
Wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day

The dark side of love


There’s a white mist all around me. I cannot see an inch further. I stumble and hold out my hands to catch my fall. I shout but no voice comes out. I listen but no sound wavers. I look but no vision flickers. I can feel a tight knot in my throat. A throbbing in my chest. A heaviness in my head. Fear? No this wasn’t it. I look back trying to find the path I had come from but there’s only the whiteness of the void waiting for me. They say it’s the dark that makes you blind. Today, I had experienced otherwise.

With my head held high,
with my hopes on the fly,
I inch forward,
with noone to guide me by

I wish I knew
Of my impending doom
Down I went
With a shattering boom

Into the deep hole I fell
Down the never ending ditch
Little did i know I had fallen
Down the dark side of love.

The dark side of love? How could something so bright, so hopeful, so white have a dark side? It wasn’t hatred. No. It wasn’t a darkness. But it was like a burning candle. A bright light that falls on your face. But as you try to grab it, it burns. It burns the very flesh of your body. The searing pain going all the way to your heart. Making you feel like a thousand bolts of electricity are coursing through your veins instead of blood. The pain isn’t constant. Neither is it temporary. But it comes in jolts. After several moments. One moment you feel vacant, empty, emotionless. The other you feel like a vacuum consuming you from inside. A black hole at the very centre of your existence.

It’s painful to feel so immensely about something yet unable to get to it. It’s like a door. The closer you get. The farther it goes. Love isn’t supposed to hurt. It isn’t supposed to open up wounds. It isn’t supposed to slash and burn. Yeah it doesn’t. But the dark side of love does.

Down there deep in the ditch I lay. Looking at the tiny light high above me. Beckoning me. Calling me. But I cannot get out.

Life’s like this. There are times when you fall in love either with the wrong person or with someone you cannot spend your life with. And then you fall down this ditch unable to get out on your own. You wait for someone to pull you out. But who really cares. People walk by. Looking down on you and move ahead. The waiting clock ticks from days to months to even years. And all you can do is wait for a saviour that may never come. Sitting there silently as you soul slowly crumbles to dust. As your being soundlessly shatters to nothingness.

O Radiant One

I stare in awe at the radiant speck in the distance
Shining like a full bright moon, emitting its milky light
I reach out to touch it, locked in a tranceangel-of-light
But an invisible wall blocks me, repels me
I try my luck time and again
But alas! All of it goes to vain

My eyes are filled with yearning
My heart has started bleeding
Why is reality so hurting
Couldn’t it be just like I wanted
I realised there were too many hindrances
Life doesn’t always give what one wishes

I want to return to my world of dreams
Where I am king of my realities
I want to retreat to an eternal sleep
Where the harshnesses wont disturb me
I want to dissolve in the sands of time
Where the storms of life wont engulf me

People say this race you will lose
Cause too many are after what you pursue
No matter how much you try
You will never make your own that light so high
I ask do they have what I possess
This burning, beating thing inside my chest

O Radiant One! I can no longer hold
These walls are making me bold
I want to raze them to ground
So at last you might be found
Time is not on my side
Save me, Save me I am gonna die

O Mighty One


Often as I gaze upon the starry sky

I wonder what made it so high
The milky moon like a ball of light
The sun, a blazing fiery bun
And all reminds me of the Greatest One


Often as I gaze upon the lush green land
I wonder Who dotted it with trees
The breeze that constantly blows
Making them move to and fro
And all reminds me of the Almighty


As the buds bloom in to flowers
The fruits ripen and fall
As the butterfly opens its wings
In praise of their Lord the birds sing
And my soul craves to meet the Creator


He gave me eyes to see His Grace
A tongue to saturate with His Praise
He gave me ears to hear His Call
And legs to bow in gratitude
For He is my Lord, the King of alll


Today as I look back upon my darkened life
Drowned in sins and worldly greed
My eyes fill with tears of shame and pain
All my life is spent, with no gain
Will I die without a chance to redemption?


For how long in this world will I stay?
Surely I’ll have to leave one day
With the passage of time I’ve realized
I am nothing but a puppet of clay
Forgive me my Lord, before my life goes away
