Just a moment

Just wait a moment, you said

And been waiting ever since

When be that moment auspicious 

I say what’s in my heart

Those bitten by the love bug

Waiting, a punishment hard

As one mouths the words

I love you over and over

Life just stalls, moments fly

A sign, a ray of hope

Is all that matters

To live life by

 

Burden of Silence

Sad is the heart that bears the burden of silence
Weighed down by punishment of compromise
Neither capable of bleeding nor weeping
Calcified by years of torment, it waits
Passion has met its match and surrendered
Love entombed and buried deep under
It does not ache or yearn any more
Heart turned to stone does not feel
Waits for soothing touch of death to heal.

Divergent Thoughts: Set of Haikus

In the name of God
Millions tortured, maimed and killed
Still preach the gospel

The prophet of peace
Followers kill in his name
Mute spectators all

Tower of Babel
Merciful God’s punishment
Cursed diversity

Children of the book
Monotheistic all but
Which one is greatest

We want lasting peace
But peace on our own terms though
While the world suffers

Lie, cheat, commit sin
As long you serve our purpose
Get a mulligan

We worship same god
Speak different languages
Different, we fight

We speak same language
But worship different god
Different, we fight

Worship same, speak same
Different color of skin
Different, we fight

What is different
Language, color, religion
Same blood flows in vein
