Wings of Love

As you fly free on your wings of love, I rejoice
I cut my own for you to fly away with joy
My  darling, I can rein in my passion
But to cage my love and see you in pain
Just not in me to carry that painful  burden
Fly free, just tell me that my wait won’t be in vain

Temporal Absurdity

When there will be time,
It will not matter anymore.
False self importance,
Scarred life bears
Pains of lonliness
Amongst abundance.
In solitude
I close doors to the world,
Open my mind to the universe,
Fly in vacuum of black holes unseen.
Temporal absurdity rules.

She was a Woman

Thank God that she was a woman

Without her I would not be the man

I am today

Her silence spoke volume of an inner strength

Gentle eyes radiated love

A touch softer than a billowing cloud

Warm enough to melt a hardened heart

Faith and belief in goodness of man

Hearth open at any time of the day

For the needy

Never asked but shared what she had

A voice never raised to keep us straight

Mere thought of hurting her

Enough to show  us the light

Who needed medicine

When a hug was enough

To take away all the pain

Thank you God

For making my mother

A woman

Without her

I would not be the man

I am today


A tribute to my mother on International Women’s Day

My Aching Heart Bleeds: RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge # 241 Storm & Fierce

This post is in response to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge .

My aching heart bleeds
Raging emotions hidden
A fierce storm brewing
*****
Misinterpreted
Ambushed unexpectedly
Wreckage of fierce storm
*****
Forgive and forget
Pick up pieces after storm
Fierce pain lingers still
*****
Storm will pass one day 
Love and trust casualty
Fierce pain will subside

 

 

Veil

Have you ever tried to lift the veil
Beneath the laughter there is aching pain
A true friend is one who sees through
I know you have pain of your own
That you never shared
I scratch the mask you wear
But I tread gingerly
Lest won’t be able to bear the pain
The scars that you carry
Lie safely hidden
My heart aches
As we tango
Circling
Life goes on
Abnormally normal
Entwined
Lovers
Lost in our
Own lies

 

Vainglorious Us

Words rebellious,
Imprisoned,
Pages never turned,
Lost forever in
Fleeting screens
Ever changing.

Vainglorious us,
Soliciting likes.
Dreams of
Changing the world
Captive.

Victims we all.
Some suffer
Incredible pains,
Sacrificed
On altars of power.
Others sulk, nursing
Injured pride.
Hearts pain
Licking cowardice.
