Silence Can Be Heard


When you are in distress, dejected with everything around…
When every word spoken to you, molds into a deafening noise…
When you know that your words, however strong, no longer matters…
You keep silence… with so much to say, you’re left with no choice…

When your heart is broken, shattered a thousand little pieces…
When you know, you love someone but he won’t come around…
When in your thoughts you remember people from the graves…
You keep silence, no word would be enough… you’re dumb-found…

When life gives you all that you wanted, happiness and successes…
When you’ve moments to be proud of- you’ve eyes full of tears…
When that special someone whispers his coveted first words of love…
You keep silence ‘cause you’ve no words- just a heart full of emotions…

And when you are left alone, stranded in your life’s struggles…
When you walk alone and you’ve no one to take strides along…
When you step back, pause and reflect… look for answers within…
You keep silence even though deep in your heart there was a song…

Now I know… your silence has a voice- the voice of your soul…
Now I know… your heart has a story- a tale of pain and ecstasy…
Now I know… your love for me can never end… a beautiful symphony…
Even when you say nothing… I can now hear your silent voice of silence…

The Crossroad


She stepped onto the lonely street with a heavy heart
Her eyes laden with droplets of pain, she walked in haste
She trudged past her favorite coffee shop wiping her tears
She wanted to break free… leave behind her past and walk away…

She walked and walked… She didn’t ever wish to stop…
Driven by her unbearable pain, fueled by her strong resolve…
She walked past everyone and everything she knew…
She walked past her dreams… She walked past her love…

She didn’t look ahead… neither did she look behind…
She just treaded ahead… her thoughts pushed her forth…
Her broken heart beat fast… rushing agitated blood through her…
Her eyes were now dry… there were now droplets of sweat…

“I hate him!” – She said to herself. “I hate everything.”
“I will never come back!” – She murmured in angst.
She paused for a moment to catch her breath
“How could he?”- She thought and then again she rushed ahead…

She was not alone… Her broken heart was walking with her…
There was a constant combat in her thoughts; a turbulent soul…
There was anger-a rebellion, and there was love-awhile lost.
There was sadness and hopelessness- her journey towards unknown…

But she walked and walked… sometimes slow and sometimes fast…
There was no certain direction… and there was no destination…
But she walked… her legs now hurt… her boots now prickled…
There seemed no end of the road ahead and no end behind…

Her steps were now heavy… her breath was now leaving her…
Her journey came to a halt as her heart now beat for the past…
She looked ahead… there was an unforeseen crossroad in her path…
She was panting… she was dehydrating… She had to stop at last…

One road lead dauntingly uphill… one lead scarily downhill…
One lead to the endless woods and the other was just behind…
She felt lonely and scared… She felt like looking behind for a while…
She turned around slowly… He was there- Her Love… all the way along…

Her Smile Makes My Day


I don’t understand love; it is such a labyrinthine enigma.
I don’t understand heart; it beats drum-like when she is by me.
I don’t understand eyes; it has tears when she is in despair.
I do understand one thing; she’s my world, she’s everything to me.

When I walk by her side, holding gently, her soft hands,
It feels like a magical symphony, played from the heavens.
When she rests her head on my shoulders, I feel heavy;
As if all her pains have deported into my heart and veins.

When out of nowhere that cool blissful breeze blows,
And her silky lock flows behind, hiding my awed semblance.
And when she turns around in shock realizing the mess,
And carefully removes them, to see my magic struck face.

Then when she caresses me, laughing at my stupefied form;
A magic had been spelled upon me by the aroma of her hair;
And when she pulls my ears to release that benumbing spell,
I feel so special, I feel so loved- bringing a sense that life’s fair.

And when she walks away, saying nothing and not even looking,
Just her eyes spilling her hurt; my silly heart shatters fragmented,
For a moment I curse myself a thousand times and run after,
To fetch my love back; to whisper a thousand words of atonement.

She looks down, silent, still unable to let in my countless sorries.
Every attempt to pacify goes in vain, with her eyes still tear-laden.
There comes that little red rose from my back pocket- my savior!
I kneel down raising that scarlet, awaiting the smile that makes my day.

Those Unspoken Words


As the sun is dipping down … crying that it is the moment now…
I sit on a rock with this letter close to my chest…
And the thought of letting you go… with a wish to let you know…
That the angels must be looking at me in detest…
That in my heart I cry… for the love which I never could show…

The love which was shining on my inner world… like the sun…
Giving me strength, to fight it all…
All that was hurting you… all that was making you cry…
Wiping away the tears… bringing a light of hope… a ray of joy…
When you thought you had lost it all… it was there… afar…
Shining bright in your life… like a lonely star…

My hand which now trembles… holds this Message of my Heart…
Which once held yours… strong, relentless, ever-caring… never letting it go apart
Leading you out of this abyss… pushing you through the dark…
Pulling you through the mudding sadness… with that untiring spark
Fighting against all the resistance… offering you friendship and love…
Giving you warmth in the times of cold, hatred, torture and prejudice…

That hand trembles now… holding this Message unspoken …
Close to the heart… which is now broken…
Which now bleeds… bleeds in love… bleeds in disdain…
This brave heart… which once belonged to you… now beats in vain…
Which you maybe, never felt… yet it beat strong to stand by you…
It has said everything to me this moment… so true…

This brave heart… says that it’s time…
It’s time to let you go… it’s time to let go the pain…
It’s time to be strong for the person who deserves …
And beat for her who stands by me and protects …
This moment, while it’s going to die… with a hope…
That from this inferno, this brave heart… will rise again…
