Flowers Of Belonging

As asked by Vivek, here's a poem on his marriage to Priyanka. Wishing them lots of happiness for many many years.

Soft voices
Rejoice in unision
Trembling smiles
Wrapped in innocence
Gift a hope
Of selflessness,
When the heart piano
Plays songs of mirth,
The voice
For once
Immersed in your
Own Conscience
Breaking barriers
Of Lip Sync.

In eyes
Devoid of Make-up,
Strikes a chord.

Just gaze
At the
Flowers of belonging
And let the
Lilting night
Linger on...

Inflationary Life

Darkness stabs
Festered by fear.

Takes revenge
For all the
Tears fall
within no time.

Childhood scars
Tossed out of
Window of Convenience,
In the grown up world
Innocence is an aberration.

Smirk Daggers
Tear apart
Vestiges of
A sense of 'Belonging',
Only insanity
Cheers for selflessness.

Can be
Clear or Crooked,
Doubts slither
How do I buy
A few moments
Of hope
From this
Inflationary life?

Don't Dare To Possess

When discomfort
Webs a spell
Of illusions
The footsteps
Slow down.
Can I just run,
Fires up

Two destinations
of Belonging,
A mere traveler
Deluding his own

Don't dare to possess
What is said
To be Yours;
Don't bother
To wait
For something
That may
Or may not happen.

Make friends
With the Road Ahead,
Run or walk
But don't stop
There's no end
Only an excuse
For new
