A Book’s Urge

Resting on a dusty shelf
Leading a life of a recluse
I am waiting for you
To uncover me and embrace

I’ve seen you come and go
Encapsulated in your struggles
Drenched and lost in your life’s web
Time has come to embrace me

In this state of Delirium
Pick me up and set me free
I will guide you towards light
I am your spiritual Ecstasy

Yes, don’t ignore me now
I am your delight, waiting
To be uncovered
On a dusty and humid shelf

Alone in a Meadow

Is this a dream
Or I am fading
Into a world
On the other side

Rays of a star
Sneaking from behind the trees
As I lay on the grass with
The scent of roses and lilies

Squirrels are dancing
Butterflies are fluttering
On a symphony of a breeze
Flowing from a nearby river

As I flow through this meadow

I try to fix my broken pieces
But this breeze is whispering
Me to let the pieces be free
And flow with the breeze

Do you see What I see?

Do you see?
Rays of the Sun
Blushing to see no one
In a solitary city

Do you see?
Struggle of life
To grab hold of
The only remains of hope

Do you see?
What I see
My last few breaths
Fighting on the edge


Losing drop by drop
Struggling to seek happiness
Should I set myself free
from this earthly bond?

Now I see,
The other side
Vaporised to see the brightness
Of my life beyond

Are you Listening

Are you listening
The voice so bleak
A murmur from the corner
A voice so faint
A sound piercing
Through your breath

Are you listening
A shrill of your consciousness
A voice of hope
Igniting from your soul
The sound of courage
Emanating from the mist

Listen that voice
The epiphany of life
The melody that pushes
The melancholic tide
Permeating from life!

Welcome to Afterlife

Welcome to Afterlife
You broke loose of Space time
All nightmares ended with life
All you have now
Is bright Sunshine

Now time is your puppet
And you are a Prophet
Either Move backwards
Like a Phoenix from the ashes
Or travel with light
To see the future, so divine
