Goodbye, friend


hello friend, you are one of very few
'cause when I move away I'll actually miss you..
we had always been proud and free
we could've been bitter enemies
but we tamed that ego & now no one's more dear..
I never shied from saying grow up to your crying face
we don't always watch out or wish good grace
but we always had faith in our capable ways...
and when I give advice you harken to my words
listen truly to the power of spoken words
but without the bearer's condescension or hurt...
and without you I wouldn't be,
'cause whenever I hit the ball you hit it back to me
then one day i saw we were moving like the wind...
even if I find nobody out there like you
I won't mind 'cause I've already met you
and have been sated with the deeper parts of the blue...

Lets dance


I say lets dance
you say lets talk
I took pains to learn
knowing how well you danced
but you say you dance no longer...
When I first saw you dancing
thought you were jumping about
maybe 'cause I couldn't hear the music..
Now that I'm in that place
my legs won't stop..
Why didn't I dance before?
..but I could only hear till so far..
and there were too many noises...
Will I always be running behind you?
hope we're running in circles
for when they overlap
we can talk all you want...

The Ghost of You, Pt. 4


You came sometime
she came sometime
she came sometime else...
you said some things
you were my first
your things became my self...

She also tried
to say some things
or so I understand...
and even though
she wasn't you
she tried to hold my hand...

But when I called her
as my own
she knew she didn't belong...
'cause all around
my broken world
she said she saw your ghost...

Even when I moved
to world's end
a piece of you did rake...
stabbing my heart
with no repreive
killing for killing's sake...

Though knowing you
I know too well
you never meant me harm...
But your light emanates
from faraway stars
the ones I don't command...

Go down with the ship


I will not fall below
the standard of absolute
even if the competition
withers and dies

I will not sell myself
for any cheap tricks
I will not dilute myself
they can all try

I will not pander
to thieves and dacoits
I can take all and not
crack before any whip

I will not not flourish
off of pirates' gold
I rather choose to
go down with my ship

Beyond The Horizon



If you could see beyond the horizon,
how far could you see my love,
how far would you see my love,
would you be able to see me here,
a hundred million miles away,
in a world
so different from your own...

'cause beyond the horizon
the sun never sets
but you are my sun
and all I've got this side is
a permanent darkness
my sun set a while ago ...

Fallen Star


You're like a night star
a much too bright star
I'm like a lonely light
in the corner of your eye
you look straight at me
and I disappear..
O love, was I never there?

Sunset


Your tears are for the
both of us
I know your pain well
it is mine 
But its okay to break
let it go
My calm will help you
lift your burden
I'll help you in carrying
what you can't
My strength will serve when
yours is gone
I'll always be close by
keeping an eye
And when you're unable to
walk any longer
I'll carry you in my arms
across the sea ...
into the sunset ...

Fireworks


I mount atop a rocket
bring a match to the fuse
it whistles to me then booms
my sky was set ablaze,
And I'm also weightless
and see the earth as lights
but wicked gravity wins
so hit the ground I do..

And through my gasps & blood
I remember how I saw
in the corner of my eye
the beat of an angel's wings,
Her visions are all I see
in my wasting feeble soul
so please don't take away
how I saw a beautiful world...

Yin-Yang


I don't need you
to be more beautiful
'cause I think you are
beauty sublime
even though at times
you might think otherwise,
I don't need you
to be strong and charming
I just need you
to be just like you,
to smile that smile
and laugh that laugh
and do that voodoo
which you love to do..

I don't need you
to feel like I feel
I don't need another
piece like myself,
maybe you don't see it
but I'm a broken piece,
I just need you
to fit into me
and make me whole
make us whole
be the yin to my yang...

Fly my love


All this time that I thought
you were sailing away
you were silently dying
I didn't see, how I cry my love

You have bled much
but your heart beats strong
just hold on tight a moment
before long, I'll arrive my love

You shouldn't be like this
but save your soul I will
I'll make a deal with the devil
you belong, don't die my love

The world needs your pretty soul
though I won't be missed much
I'll lay my heart as a stepping stone
you deserve, go fly my love...

Rock Paper Scissors


The world is always playing
rock paper scissors
running familiar cycle
we all know the way,

the design wasn't meant
to have kings and pawns
its only what we make
and only what we say,

though we are ultimately
just pieces of the sea
each drop standalone
still all must play,

the mighty rocks fall
before slender supple paper
one of life's switchbacks
so long, tough break...

Azure Skies


There was a time when
we ran like the wind,
and laughed under azure skies
together as one..

How did it come to this
when did the cogs begin to turn
like an elysian vision
it seems like a fading dream..

We were so naive that
we knew neither fear
nor envy nor hatred
and the sky was the limit..

And so filled were with passion
all those invincible faces
and all those first meetings
that will never happen again..

And all that unearthly beauty
left awestruck so many souls
at times it felt like
even the sun was dancing..

And we felt we could reach
till the end of the rainbow
and maybe a little further
while life ran in technicolor ....

River


Drifting down the river of thought
I reach a crucial fork,,
there is one who loves me
and one whom I love

Unable to choose, I fret for days
weighing against each other
the pros of both ways
but unable to move I am

Then I use another approach
First without her then you
I imagine a future epoch
weighing what I lose each time

And then my rivers coalesce
as frothing eddies turn blue
There never was a dilemma
and there never were two
'cause its you my darling
its always been you ...

Titbits


I don't want the titbits
you have to offer
the crumbs from a larger pie,
I want it all
including the tantalizing aroma
and the lingering taste,
and I'm not gonna share it
being a greedy kid,
If anybody so much as
makes a move for it
I'm gonna knock their teeth out,
and I'm gonna keep
coming back for more and more
until there is
no separate pie and me,
'cause my desire for you baby
is insatiable...


One for the gods


Have you ever wondered
whats it like to not be
your usual beautiful self,
To work your hardest
and still get beaten,
And live without the confidence
that exudes from you
that defines your very life
your hopes and tastes
and the way you wear your skin

To be one in the crowd
and not be loved everywhere,
Where'll your soul be
in the great sea of life
without that anchor you know,
What if you couldn't rise up
through the ranks and beat
the best at every level

Tell me, have you ever wondered
what drives the common man
and makes him sleep at night
wishing for another day,
And what'll it be like
to not patronize them all
but look at them as equals,
And let yourself be swept away
with the awe of pure admiration
and not a hint of envy

Tell me, were you to lose it
all within a day's space
how would you hold,
I'm sure the answer lies
beyond your comprehension,
But still try to imagine
what if you couldn't speak
the language of your dreams...

I'm coming home


There was a time when
you used to tell me
how you like the morning breeze
the streaks of red in the dawn
and the things of your dreams,
now you just tell me
the names of places you went
and smile in black & white
what happened?

There was a time when
I used to tell you
how I played as a kid
and all of my favourite songs
and some things I didn't know myself,
now I'm just able to
say things you'll find in books
and smile when I'm not happy
tell me what happened?

But I won't stand and
watch us die like this
I'll climb the highest peak and
bring down the flame of the gods,
and in the name of the old sun
I'll set this world on fire
'cause I can't let you feel cold
and once you have thawed
I'm coming home...

Amuse


Pick up the phone and
call up my name
whenever you have time,
and all the times you
don't answer my calls
I would never mind

I will continue to
be your royal jester
without any demands,
even if you choose to
keep me in the shadows
away from your friends

Just keep loving me
every once in a while
even if its a ruse,
you are my world
my Aphrodite, my muse
even if I'm your amuse ...

Without You

The autumn smell in the air
and the rain of wafting leaves,
the warm glow in my face
the rustling grass, the singing trees,

Merry people scurrying around
taking simple laughs from life,
it was quite a rustic scene
a poet's inspirational sight,

And me standing there
the wind playing with my hair,
my things great, my health sublime
the world watching, should've felt divine,

But somehow joy eluded me
my own feelings deluded me,
'cause something felt incomplete
as you were not there with me...

My Angel


Greatness is your destiny,
you are able to soar above
and pass through mirrors but,
these are places my love,
I cannot follow..

don't come down to earth
every now and then, O angel,
my heart gives foolish dreams
of walking along with you...

Winter

My years in the snow,
your faraway fire burning bright,
it kept my heart warm ...

Patience, Pt.2

When its dark downright,
you must adapt, rise with patience,
in search of some light



Patience

He must contemplate, in the grand scheme, his place
before making concoctions, look at his options
and follow perseverance, wait for her with patience...

Notebook


You whisper some things
ever so slightly
under your breath
and then go away
to come along some other day
like everything's still the same
and we keep moving
until you lean over
and start murmuring
something again
but I stop you and say,
I know darling
I remember
how could I possibly forget ...
I wrote it down in my heart ...

Hurricane

You who know me,
as a Buddha on a hill,
as a seal in the sand,
as a sheep in its herd,
as a cow with its curd,
as an old man under a tree,
as just a garden weed,
You will not call me,
any of those names,
'cause when the moment beckons,
I come forth like a hurricane...



Friday, 2 September 2011

I'll come along


When your heart is crying deep inside
And your vision is going hazy and blind
When you find yourself at crossroads
And you see in the distance, light is dying
When you know they are what you prayed for
When you know the moment has come forth
When you know that you don't have too long
When you want in your heart to go along
But the shackles you feel are far too tight
But nothing is keeping you there that night
Why despair, why is your mind confused
There are no chains but the ones you choose
When you know your love is going away
And there never might come another day
When you hear them call and scream your name
But the world keeps you from playing the game
Sprout some wings and leave all behind
Its not too hard, soon you will find
To say, Wait for me
I'll come along, my love


Stars


I'm here in a wasteland a thousand miles away
but the look of your eyes, with me will stay
Before I could say anything, you flew away
but there soon will come a brand new day
when I'll cross the seven seas and hold them at bay
Crash down through the stars and take you away
up into the night where the angels play
and make you forget all night and day
Hold you so close, take your breath away
And together we'll sail through the starry array
They'll shine down on us, the world will sway
a million miles away, and you'll be mine that day.

I'll travel the light years in the blink of an eye
and bring you the lights to which you sigh
All the light in the cosmos for you I'd pray
God bless me and forever keep it that way
The dimensions will fade, and if I dare say
I'll light everything in your life that was gray
and you'll shine so bright the stars will fade away
Yes, I'll take you into that night, I won't stray
and we'll be voyagers into that endless bay
The 'angels' will be green, they'll say we stay
but we'll leave them behind, they're gods of clay
You & me, we'll be so happy together
All I want my darling, is your forever...

My Obsession

As I lay at the gates of sleep
she glides before me
My long lost love
in a white dress in the
midsummer night's garden
The stars in the air
and the wind in her hair
She looked like a poem
The dirge of my despair
And I realize,
I must already be asleep ...

The Ghost of You, Pt. 2

You have faded away
But never completely gone
Like the ring in my ears
When the sound goes away

Were you ever here?
Or were you but a dream
Or maybe the spots I see
When the flash goes away

How did you come about
How did it all start
'cause all I know is that
You have always stood there

You will never be gone
'cause you are a part of me
When I can't take the silence
Your lips will utter me the words ...

The Ghost of You



I lost you in a second, to find you took eternity
The pain I feel billows on me, my very own tragedy
I look for you, you look through me, blind to what you mean to me
I lost myself the day you left, I miss you times infinity
You're gone so many miles away, do I really want you so bad
or is it just my fascination, with what I cannot have

I see you in the night, an ethereal ray from above
But why you keep standing there, say something my love
Don't look at me like a stranger, you're staking my beating heart
You're tearing me asunder, if I'm not already torn apart
A desperate attempt to hold onto, what I should be letting go
But who decides what they dream, I just can't go with the flow

I want to get high on you, I cannot have too much
Let me see your face again, the pictures are not enough
Inside the beast is gnawing, I wish I were already dead
but all the things I never said, hurt so much more instead
Please just call my name, let go of any grudge
I'll follow you until the end, just come to me my love...

Phantom

In a land where angels are killed, and hearts are few
Wings are clipped, because no one ever flew
Things move too fast, they disappear into puffs
But if you keep up, they'll slow down soon enough
I'll never change this world, but you have a cause
You who can see through, their vices and their flaws
Be a savior of the broken, a warrior of the light
Be a voice of the woken, but a phantom in the night...

Her voice resides

He cries, under infinite skies
In anguish
Her face is gone, her voice resides...
