• And then the thunder said… •

And then,
The thunder said,
“I’m the background score to the rhythm of the rain”.
Can you not feel it?
While the clouds are fuming in rage,
And are descending their vengeance with pleasure,
All I get is veiled cries,
And dreadful dejections.
Is there one soul?
To feel my quivering anguish?
And since forever,
I’ve been hoping for a mirthful miracle.
I’ve been mourning to linger in the hearts of humans,
As a melancholic, rageful melody!

• Songs, Forgiveness, Boondoggle •

Some days,
I sing songs in my dreams,
And let forgiveness wrap over all my sins,
In an effort to undo all the hurt I caused my heart!
I let all the good memories dance over my soul,
In an effort to brighten up the gloomy soul!
I wrap all of me,
And give myself unto you,
Hoping to be yours,
In this boondoggle dream-world!

• No kites •

In so many ways,
Metaphorically,
My dreams are colorful kites,
With no strings attached.
I stand under the canopy of clouds,
And an awning of aspirations,
Waiting for the wind to help my kites fly.
I’ve been waiting for too long, now.
Maybe,
Some kites tear apart,
And crumble.
But,
That’s okay.
My strength lies in picking up the crumpled pieces,
And trying all over again.

• The earth is not a cold dead place •

I sit by the window,
Sipping my coffee,
Letting my train of thoughts
Travel through the jungle of imagination.
Bailey is wagging his tail,
And his eyes are asking for cookies.
It’s raining.
I can see my dreams dancing in the tiny droplets.
I can feel all my broken pieces come together like a solved puzzle.
My heart is warm,
And my soul, grateful.
People are rushing through the streets,
A little kid jumping into puddles on purpose,
An old man trying to protect his cat from getting wet.
There’s a blind man enjoying the rain,
And birds are singing songs of happiness.
For the first time,
I realize,
People are blessed,
And watching them without the mask of judgement is bliss.
The earth is not a cold dead place.
It’s heaven flourishing with boundless love,
If only you have the courage to look beyond.

• The weight of a word •

What’s the weight of a word?
The rage of the letters that make it up?
The silent echoes of the meaning it personifies?
Or the memories that it reminds us of?
Or the feelings that it kindles?
Maybe, it’s the slow explosion of arcanic miracles,
On paper.

• To be stuck in an elevator •

I’m crowned with a tiara of panic,
My heart’s jumping out of the rib cage.
Claustrophobia?
My sweat glands are pro-active.
I can feel a million memories thundering my mind.
Meekly upon the little hope that I’m trying to hold on to,
My sobbings, unheard.
This isn’t how it should end.
This tale should be that of bravery,
Interlaced with anticipation,
Reminding me of all the things that’s left to do.
This life is but a fantasy,
And I’m only going to strive,
To live more freely,
To love more fiercely!

• I wish upon the stars •

And I can feel dreams creeping from the crevices of my beating heart.
In the black passageway of the night sky,
I find the stars twinkling away.
I wonder if they are their unexpressed wishes.
Or if they are signals,
Signals to remind us that HOPE exists.

Upon difficult nights,
I will wish upon the stars,
Showers of love,
Beats of kindness,
Shades of passion.
And in the rhythm of your beating heart,
And the twinkle of every star,
I will blossom in your soul,
With desire.

Upon even difficult nights,
I will wish upon the stars,
Bubbles of freedom,
Petals of trust,
Tinges of rage.
And in the rhythm of your beating heart,
And the twinkle of every star,
I will create our destiny,
With yearning.
