The cause for all misery
It turns the meek into a beast
A hidden enemy within yourself
You never know when it's unleashed
Just when the mind has lost its control
It makes the wise look like a fool
When it's the resident of your soul
There's no room for wisdom anymore
Sometimes it lives for a moment
And sometimes it lasts a lifetime
Dominating you completely from head to toe
It slowly eats you alive making the world a foe
An eye for an eye is its motto
Hence, it blindly wages a war on any soul
Though the battle is not about who's right
But who's left or rather who survives
Feeding on explicit verbal wars
It quenches its thirst on innocent blood
Finally, it makes you a prisoner of the past
And leaves you disgusted with a life full of regrets

Her voice still echoes in my mind
Even though I heard it for the first time
She started the conversation with a simple ‘hello’
It sounded like a medley
That's sweet and mellow
Words were set to a mystic tune
A magical spell from which I'm yet to revive
Though it was a conversation
I heard more and very less was said
It lasted
only for a few minutes
But it took me hours to snap back
I still wonder if she ever spoke
For all that I heard was her angelic voice
That gave way to lyres and chimes in the background
She hails from a far away land
A paradise that's across the seas
One day for sure I hope we’ll meet
And I wish that this doesn't repeat
As I don't want to spend that moment
By being cast under a spell

Where does the search end?

Thorns can’t stop the rose from withering

Nor can you stop yourself from falling in love

Love can’t be found even on a bright sunny day

For love will only find you

Even if it’s a place which the sun has least known

It’s like the waves of the sea under the full moon sky

They never cease to caress the shores

But nothing is as refreshing as the first wave that hit you before

Some drag you into the deep and they’ll never leave

It’ll become your ill fated destiny for eternity

Though not everyone who’s in love has seen the day of doom

It’s their heart that’s as fragile as a rose, which’s yet to bloom

And once they bloom they either make it

in between the pages of a book called life

By leaving an impression that’ll remain forever

Or, simply end up on a grave

Conversations in Silence

Staying apart doesn’t mean we’re far away

We live very close to each other through our thoughts everyday

When we meet those moments are lost in complete silence

Our conversations are nothing more than exchange of glances

As it’s not just words that say everything indeed

There’s more to it when it’s said through the deafening silence

And if only words could explain all that we want to say

Maybe, we would never regret even if we were to be born blind in a way

For true understanding arises not by talking all night and day

But when a lot is said even if no words are spared

Cos’ it’s the eyes that express your love in a million ways

Yet it has no dictionary or thesaurus

to decipher its true meaning in any way

Unless it’s the one who loves you with all their mind and soul

Every expression is understood without a single flaw

And if I die you can still meet me at my grave

Then however near, the distance between us would be far

I won’t have any glances or words to spare

But still we can converse in silence

Until we meet again on the other side
