If I Could Erase my Memories

If I Could Erase my Memories

People and Hearts

I wish to be a weathered rock
That withstood the test of time and nature.
If I could erase my memories…

I wish to be a homeless kid,
Who didn’t know the meaning of an orphan.
If I could erase my memories…

I wish to be a migratory bird
That didn’t know the existence of its nest.
If I could erase my memories…

I wish to be an old tree
That didn’t know its age.
If I could erase my memories…

I wish to be a prisoner,
Who didn’t know his crime.
If I could erase my memories…

I wish to be an artificial satellite
That lost track of its orbit.
If I could erase my memories…

Letting the Moment to Pass

Letting the moment to pass.

It sounds so easy to read the above line. Sounds so easy! But at times, it is the most difficult thing to do.

To let the moment to pass. When you have no control of your thoughts and heart, it is not so easy to let this moment pass by. But you have to let the moment pass by as there is no other go.

It is like tying your legs to a tree and asking you to run,

It is like tying your thoughts to a tree and asking you think,

It is like tying your emotions to a tree and asking you to react,

It is like tying your words to a tree and asking you to speak.

It is like tying your Anoop

Frozen by an Illusion

Frozen by an Illusion
Frozen by an Illusion

Burning the dreamy shadows of illusion
that drew the smokey eyes.
Shedding the moistened leaves of illusion
that deceived the fading greenery.
Frozen by an illusion.

Attenuating the deafening voices of illusion
that disguised the lifting melody.
Vaporizing the hypnotic rain of illusion
that cozened the melting rainbows.
Frozen by an illusion.

The Power and Aftereffects of Guilt

Who's Guilty?

Guilt – What can it do to people?

If people are found guilty, they undergo a battle between their heart and the present. The guilt takes their lives to a different level. The aftereffects of guilt varies with individuals.

For a few, guilt makes them to think wisely and be cautious. They begin to live life differently. For certain people, guilt offers them another opportunity to live a worthy life. They begin to live rather than to exist merely.

There are a few, who start to love someone truly, forget someone completely, end their own life through suicide, ask forgiveness, kill someone and many more. Guilt can do anything to anyone. That’s why a guilty person is vulnerable.

But there are a few who think about someone every day and live their life gracefully. In this case of people, they are still guilty. However, they know that life has to go on.

Guilt is hiding in everyone’s heart. Most people don’t accept it. Guilt is seen throughout the history from men to women. Guilt is passed on from generations to generations from great people to laymen.

In the end, guilt changes people to human beings as they learn the meaning of emotions and heart.

It Kills You Like Hell…

When you have the words to say,
When you have the time to say those words,
When you have the heart to say those words,
When you give your complete self into those words,
When you find the person you love in those words,
But it kills you like hell,
When you don’t have the person you love to hear those words…
It kills you like hell…

Me, Moon, Wind, Silence and the Night

Torn away from the busy world,

Sitting calm as nothing to look forward,

Winds dash me to look up to the skies,

Looking up at the skies with my hand on the chin,

Felt the vibrating silence surrounding me,

As I had nothing to say but only emptiness,

Now the void was filling up,

As the moon, the night and the wind were lending me their shoulders,

The vobbling silence continued,

As I looked on unconvinced at the moody moon,

The night filled the emptiness with its dark shades,

I looked on clueless as the wind caressed the sleeping trees…

When Dreams Fly Like Fire…

When dreams fly like fire,
Don’t blow it off just like that,
Instead allow it to fly,
Because dreams are meant to touch undefined boundaries,
Sparking creativity through the path of mind.
When you begin to dream like fire,
Keep dreaming through those undefined boundaries,
And that’s where you meet your true self and passions,
In the land of creativity and fun.
Keep dreaming…
Keep dreaming…

When I Lost Her

Time has a penchant for making people realize the worth of few treasures that defy human intelligence and the time itself. The value of these treasures are understood when people lose them.

Likewise, I fell in love with one woman. By the time, I understood that I fell in love with her, it was too late. I realized the value of time at this moment.

When I was beginning to love her like a child who has got his power of vision for the first time in his life, she was drifting away from me forever. Time was too short for me to realize that I fell in love with her at the time of our separation.

I stood wondering what had happened while I was looking in her eyes.

“I love you”, said I.

“It’s too late now”, replied she.

“The heart doesn’t know how and when it falls in love with someone. It only knows to fall in love. Finally time shows what love really is”, whispered I.

It Kills You Like Hell…

When you have the words to say,
When you have the time to say those words,
When you have the heart to say those words,
When you give your complete self into those words,
When you find the person you love in those words,
But it kills you like hell,
When you don’t have the person you love to hear those words…
It kills you like hell…

A Man Admits it Openly

They say that men submerge their feelings,
It’s true to the core from men’s perspective,
For a change, let a man admit his feelings openly,
Here are the feelings of a man who isn’t afraid of opening himself up.

Yes, he doesn’t like to shed a tear in front of others,
Yes, he pretends to be strong although he is broken,
Yes, he does foolish things and makes mistakes,
Yes, he forgets many things unknowingly.

Yes, he is also a human being with emotions and feelings,
Yes, he has a hell lot of rebellion and turmoil going inside him,
Yes, he is clueless at times
Yes, he has his own likes, dislikes, ambitions and hopes,

Yes, ‘She’ makes him weak,
Yes, ‘She’ makes him cry,
Yes, ‘She’ makes him strong,
Yes, ‘She’ makes him smile,

Yes, he thinks about ‘Her’ round the clock,
Yes, he is mad about ‘Her’,
Yes, he craves to see ‘Her’,
Yes, he dies to listen to hear ‘Her’ voice.

Yes, he will keep up his promise for ‘Her’,
Yes, he allows her to pursue ‘Her’ dreams,
Yes, he is happy to let ‘Her’ go if she wants to,

Yes, he is ready to forget ‘Her’ if it is required,
Yes, he finds it hard to move on,
Yes, he knows that he can’t forget ‘Her’,
Yet still, he will forget ‘Her’…

Broken Words

Trying to describe the moment of despair felt by two people,
Living in two different corners of the world,
Trying to describe the silence between the two people,
Carrying the burden of shattered memories,
Those unsaid words, those broken words…

Trying to visualize the meeting between two people,
Looking into their eyes for one last time,
Trying to feel the emotions communicated between the two people,
Holding their hands for one last time,
Those final words, those broken words…

Have You Survived the Wave? – A Take on Modern Relationships

   Mild breeze, romantic instrumental music, colorful garden with fully bloomed roses, birds flying around and finally we have a couple talking to each other, sat under a tree. This is one scene.Take a look at the other – Raindrops, late evening, smiling view of the moon, and we have a girl talking to her beloved over phone near the window. (Conversations over mobile phone)   One more scene – Blazing hot sun, under the bus stand, here we have a guy in his formal attire hooked to his headphones. (Different situation, but here too phone chitchat)

   Texting Scene – Late night 1 am, a dark room, with flashy light; here we have a gal texting “Wt doing dear” to her man.

Had enough of some funny case studies and it’s now time to shift the focus to the real topic. I’m indeed speaking about today’s love affairs, relationships, bla bla. So everyone might have experienced at least one of the above discussed scenes or would have witnessed it. My question is, have you really survived the wave called love, crush or infatuation? If yes, how did you manage to hold on to it? Do a self analysis or a flashback rewind, as in Indian movies.

It begins pretty fine, goes off well, may be for a period of one month or two months (May be a year or years in some cases). Meanwhile a small quarrel, happens to creep in and egos take birth in each others heart. What happens after this, may be a breakup or reunion?

Love, a four letter word that has countless meanings and emotions imbibed in it. How many love affairs have withstood their rein over the years? Very few have managed to survive the wave and carry it forward with the same kind of feeling and essence. 

   Yet still people fall in love, will fall in love and will always fall in love. This is one perennial saga of love affairs around the globe. 

Dedicated to all those people who have managed or haven’t managed to survive the wave called LOVE

It Begins from Where you Think it Ends…

There are certain moments in life which redefine life all over again.

Just when you think, it is all over,
Just where you think, you’ve left everything,
Just when you lose all hopes in your self,
Just when the people around you lose hopes in you,
Just when things don’t happen the way you expected,

That’s where you declare it is the end,

Unknowingly from nowhere, it creeps up from somewhere,
The complexities and unpredictability of life shows you
That everything has not ended.
There comes the redefining moment, the new beginning…

It doesn’t matter how far you have traveled or how quick you reached there, what matters is the journey, which makes it worthwhile.
