Lost Love

Lost Love

​Nine months later he went to see her. For a while he stood looking at her, saying nothing. She looked calm, serene. There was a time when he loved looking at her, a time when he loved her. That was nine months ago. He looked up at the sky. Few seconds passed. Finally he spoke.
“I don’t know whether I will ever forgive you.” He said, without looking at her. “I don’t know whether I’ll ever come running into your arms, let you embrace me. I don’t know whether I will love you again the way I did once. May be one day I will. May be that day will never come.” A few minutes of silence. He looked down at her.
“There was a time when you calmed me down, no matter what. There was a time when you made me smile. And then I hated you. With every fibre in my body. Today I realized I don’t hate you anymore. But will I ever love you again, I do not know. Only time will tell.”
He turned his back and walked away from her. Then he stopped and turned, to look at the sea again. She was still calm, serene. As if she was apologizing for taking away his friend. As if she was sorry. He smiled sadly and left her.

Forever Sleep

Forever Sleep

​I can’t be here forever.

I can’t stay awake forever.

I will have to lie down

And sleep.

Forever.

With each step

My journey nears the end

Yet the destination

Still beyond horizon.

I can’t walk forever.

I can’t wait forever.

I will have to lie down

And sleep.

Forever.

With each moment

My candle burns low.

Darkness gathers

Around me now.

I am young. 

Yet too old.

With each step,

The end gets close.

Yet the destination

Beyond the horizon.

Waves

Waves

​When the sun sets

And the darkness falls

I’ll still be here, my friend,

I’ll still be with you.

Like this sea 

Which embraces the land

Day and night,

Till the world’s end.

I’ll be the sea to your land,

My waves will be there

For you,

Day and night,

Till the world’s end.

Even if you can’t see me

I am still there,

My waves embracing you.

In your joy and your woes,

Know that I am with you.

Because you are the land

To my sea.

One Last Wave

One Last Wave

Beaches. Beaches used to be my happy place. A place I loved to visit. The sight of the vast waters stretching to the horizon always made me calm whenever I was in a turmoil. Sometimes I went into the waters, sometimes I just sat in the shore and watched the waves. Well, I am sure this is nothing special. I am yet to see a person who doesn’t like beaches. But beaches have always been special for me. When I was a kid, my parents used to take me and my siblings to the beach once in a while. Apparently, when it was time to go back home I would tell them “can we wait for one more wave please? Just one last wave”. I have no memory of this, I was very little. But according to my parents, they would drag me home after several “last waves”.
