(W)ho We Are

Life played love on a Thursday in spring,

Caught in a bundle of secret strings

Sepia melodies and gilded notes

Found a sail to stay afloat.

 

Saltwater kiss wrapped in an embrace

The moonlit sky stood witness amazed

Heartless rain drenched love to the bone

Time bargained to walk alone.

 

Distance built its hollow bridge

Eyes held what words never did

On a stone all promises were writ

Stardust shared its wondrous gift.

 

Tainted pride grew molten wings

And challenged love to foolish games

Hidden chambers then stood ajar

Brought life and love together this far.

 

Innocent smiles and honest ties

Have found new roads under pelican skies

Now learning to dance like forgotten stars

And always remembering who we are.

Dear Delhi

On a dark winter night I met you again,

While waiting for silent dreams to unfold,

We found the words to hang on a string,

You knelt and made promises of gold.

 

We fought like lovers, discarded memories like friends

Till fate drew swords and made life its prey.

 

I planned an escape from your confounding ties

You veiled the truth under a jealous sky

The spell cast shadows on twisted stone

Caged tales grew wings that never learned to fly.

 

You now smell of rain and scattered suns,

Of guilty secrets in crowded trunks.

We share the remains of borrowed time

creating new threads for a forgotten rhyme.
