One glimpse is all it takes for the heart to begin the endless longing for freedom. Poem entitled, "I Caught a Glimpse of Some Eternity." I caught a glimpse of some Eternity
as I gazed toward an almost setting sun.
And in that moment time stood still,
the ache deep in my heart relieved at last
as every leaf caught in a gentle breeze
stood frozen in a heavenly repose.
And as the light turned golden all around
a single snow white dove flew overhead.
With arms outstretched I reached out toward the sun,
but something told me it was not for me,
that on no beating of a white dove's wings
was there a haven waiting patiently.
I let the tears fall freely from my eyes
and with one blink Eternity was gone.
And as the dull eternal pain returned,
I watched the sun again start to descend.
I walked in silence as the wind picked up,
in search of someplace I could call my own,
where one short glimpse becomes reality.

We are the stories our mothers tell us. We are the un named, we are the pages in forgotten books. We are the oh so ordinary, everyday casualty. We are the hushed. We are the played. We are the objects. Just not of affection.

One of the places my soul is calm - a bookstore. I’ve been feeling incredibly inspired recently and have been doing a lot of writing. I always write in waves, so I have to take advantage when the inspiration hits.

It's weird how love starts, falters and falls.
I have seen it drown in ashes,
Offering a completely adamant picturesque of black and white.
Such wise words from a 22-year old,
And my experiences keep laughing at me.
You're a child, my mother steps in.
I disagree, I retort, but I always surrender before you,  Ma.
Rollercoasters are no fun for me,
I'll jump on them and they'll throw me away.
We are a hell lot of mismatch,
How do I tell you, Ma?
You won't know how I felt the deepest of emotions over a bowl of chocolate ice cream,
While you were asleep,
And how my swollen lips from a beautiful encounter the day before struggled to
achieve the brightest smile in the room,
when our family gathered around for morning breakfast the next day.
How do I tell you, Ma?
We are not similar, and definitely not a team.
I'm a vulnerably sad tune at a very young age,
With 8 different places to visit,
And you? You're a charming lady.
So pure, so wonderful, a fine woman.
We'll never understand each other,
And even if we do someday,
Ma, promise me to smile and let go,
Because deep down, we'd never agree.
Deep down, we'd always only pretend.
.
.
[This is NOT about me or my Ma. My mother and I are practically best friends lol. This poem (sfsgjj if I could call it one) or anything that I write is always based on where my imagination takes me at a particular moment, and it is almost never based on my personal experiences. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk, felt great.] #writersofinstagram #writersofig #poetscommunityofinstagram #poetssociety #poetryofig #paperpen #poetry #poems #poemsofinstagram #poemsofig  #poetryslam #poetscommunityofinstagram #poetsofig #spilledink #poemsofinstagram #poetrycommunity #writersnetwork #writingcommunity #instapoet #wordporn #slampoetry #poetrybook #poetscorner #amwriting #wordgasm #loveforwriting #igwriters #writersofindia #instawriters #writerscorner #writings #writerslife

A little something on "Life,and failures."
As fearless as life sounds like,
And as valiant as people act,
We're all shook,by life's strike,
Reminding us of this game called life, which no one has cracked.
Attuned to those meaningless late night shifts,
and fearfull glares across the shackles of our mind.
We live,day by day,woeful of the life that lays ahead,
Unaware,how the fear of failure has turned us blind.
Petrified, of that one thought,
One idea, one belief, relationship,or that childhood dream.
Concealed within our thoughts, insecurities
as dumb.
Bound by the fear of falling,
like a sheep amongst a pack of vultures.
In those certain moments,
where life attains more meaning than death itself,
and all those things, people, insecurities
you begin,to live, a little,
You decide to, start picking up that old guitar,
Take that trip down memory lane,
make a trip to your brother who abandoned you,
forgive all those who've wronged you,
call that someone special,
Only to pick up your phone
and to shiver,at the breath of your own voice.
Just when you're about to fall off the mountain of insecurities,
you let,the view,
the safety net,
that monthly check,
that glamarous life
get to you.
Just because you're told failing won't get you anyware
So,you succumb,to your dreams,values, against your morals
Imperiled by your comfort zone,
you become cautioned,
to find the next best chance to get out of that race,
the one you didn't sign up for,
and the one you don't truly care about.
Suddenly change seems like an ideal not worth chasing,
making adjustments the way of life,
then the insecurities of losing the inevitable sets in,
Despite this,
your heart's always waiting to make a jump,
to save yourself,
but in the end you decide to call it a day 
and live, or try to atleast. .

I am the future 
I am the past

Tried to last 
Suckers of faith 
I come the next glance 
Lovers of hate 
I will love strongly 
And win fast .....Poem:🃏💫⬇️⬇️⬇️ destined to write
to change your mind

insane is normal 
normal's insane
your spirit is higher

From galaxy to galaxy 
Higher.. come higher 
To get back your energy

To clean up your head at night

Seems like everyone is in a race 
Each one of them at their own pace
I was too, I guess
And one day I saw her 
Amidst a thousand crowd
Her crystal clear smile 
With blurryness all around

Ohh Goddd..
How I wanted everything to be still
And let her move like a 🐝 like a bird
Fluttering on a flower

And now I wanted to tell her something
Which was like for me, everything
But before I could say anything
The world resumed

And me who had lost his pace 
Who had created a low pressure space around me
Was caught in a tornado
And uprooted like a tree

#Dear2019 : I was a given a gift that no one taught me how to use, or to nurture, or to accept. I have a rare gift...and the argument is whether I was born with it...or whether circumstantial abuse and neglect molded me by some sleight of hand of natural selection. For years, I have tried to hone it, alone, really dial in and make it my own. No one told me that it would almost kill me...a couple of times. I had to find that out alone. It is a heavy gift, one most will never understand, but the will witness its unfurling, in its entirety, in full bloom. When I'm around people I try and put my gravity away. I pack it into a neutron star and hide it in the space of my pupils. Often, I find when I act on instinct people squint their eyes like they are staring at the sun. They turn their heads and label me "bright". Sometimes, I can't tell if its a compliment or an insult. A lot of people approach me the way they approach the idea of the ocean. They say they want to know everything, but forget that knowledge comes with consequence, that depth comes with pressure...that not everyone is meant to withstand. So, I spent my early years trying to protect people from the ignorance of their seeking. I spent years apologizing for being a frontier that people so persistently sought to map. I spent so much time trying to save people from my rivers while they were swimming towards my ocean. I am an ocean for a reason...I was called here.// #poetrycommunity #poetrylife #poetsofig #poetry #poets #writer #writers #words #writingcommunity #writersofig #copic #prismacolor #writerssociety #artstagram #art_spotlight #artfido #writersofinstagram #art #artist #poetsofinstagram #sketch #willworkfor2019 #okc #oklahoma #oklahomacity #notjustpoetry #Demxgxd // #IHopeYouHeal //

I name playlists after people
That's how I keep them with me
After they decide to leave

I prepare myself
The moment I meet them
I prepare myself

Because I know about the temporary cresendo
And I know when it's time to go

People unravel fast, you know
Keep eye contact long enough
And you get to see the world
Like they do.
Smile long enough and you see
That maybe
You're not the only reason for their smile.

Everyone has someone
To which you'll be compared
Everyone has something
In front of which you fade
Everyone has someone
For whom they think they're made

And they'll return again and again
In longing and then in pain
To that something, to that someone
So instead of collecting the pieces
after they leave,
Collect bits of their smiles now

Collect the songs they play
On a road-trip with you, midway
Collect the tunes in their head
That they hum when they cook
Collect the songs they shared
Because they said it reminded them
Of you, not her.
Collect everything they give
The rock ballads they send when they're high
And the meaningful melodies they cry to
When they're drunk and alone
The sad vocals that their ex liked
And the one song you both slow-danced to
One happy Wednesday night

Collect these songs and hoard them
Hoard them like comfort food
Like the cigarette stubs and movie tickets
The tissues with poems written on them
And the unplanned candids and dried roses
That you keep in your box of memories
Hoard them like that

Name your playlists after people
And let the people go.

And you get to see the world
Like they do.
Smile long enough and you see
That maybe
You're not the only reason for their smile.

Everyone has someone
To which you'll be compared
Everyone has something
In front of which you fade
Everyone has someone
For whom they think they're made

And they'll return again and again
In longing and then in pain
To that something, to that someone
So instead of collecting the pieces
after they leave,
Collect bits of their smiles now

Collect the songs they play
On a road-trip with you, midway
Collect the tunes in their head
That they hum when they cook
Collect the songs they shared
Because they said it reminded them
Of you, not her.
Collect everything they give
The rock ballads they send when they're high
And the meaningful melodies they cry to
When they're drunk and alone
The sad vocals that their ex liked
And the one song you both slow-danced to
One happy Wednesday night

Collect these songs and hoard them
Hoard them like comfort food
Like the cigarette stubs and movie tickets
The tissues with poems written on them
And the unplanned candids and dried roses
That you keep in your box of memories
Hoard them like that

Name your playlists after people
And let the people go.

My love for you has Alzheimer's now,
I give it facts and timelines the entire day about your absence
and like a 72-year old dementia patient
it forgets everything the very next morning. 
I read this condition cannot be cured
but treatment can help,
so I gently brush off the rust of 'our' memories 
which sits on my eyelids after I wake up
 from my deep sleep of lovelessness
and cut off the creepers of the good times
with the secateurs of reality.

The condition has clipped my ability to love
or let me put it this way,
the old and lonely heart has stopped  loving anybody else except you. 
There's a difficulty in recalling recent events 
maybe that's why it doesn't remember
 the tears from the last night or 
the night before that.

It feels no pain 
or maybe I keep forgetting the pain inflicted by your absence,
but at nights when I am trying to sleep
the sound of our crazy laughter and
 the love-making scenes from the remote past
keep flashing on the ceiling from the projector of my eyes
Alzheimer's, they say, ruins your visual perception. 
My tongue says jumbled words most of the times
which are bitter and hurt the people around me
but it writes and voices sweetest poetry when it comes to talking about you.
My muscles are unable to work in coherence
and I am mostly lying as a drunkard who had got nothing to lose
but my body makes me wander endlessly when it wants to think of you 
My love doesn't understand that it's suffering,
suffering from the loss of it's will to unlove.
My love for you has Alzheimer's now 
but I don't know when will it forget you. .

Sometimes we move on so far away from the past that even when the past wishes to come back, we do not have no space for it in the present. Moving on is never too easy but once we do we never want to go back!

Too hot to work indoors today so shifted the bike-desk outside again. Upset when I disturbed a spider’s nest complete with food store inside the parasol. She scuttled off and I had to hose down the eggs etc. It felt like destroying a mother’s work but maybe just my poet-brain kicking in.

Letting go of something that isn’t yours is the hardest and most relieving thing you will ever do

You never know how sad is someone from inside who you see laughing daily. If you can't afford to be someone's ray of hope, someone's helping hand, someone's source of kindness, someone's source of love then don't even try to be their dark clouds, don't apply salt to their cuts.
