Shadows have remained

You leave pieces of yourself, Scattered everywhere you frequent, And your memories are suspended in time. Every life that you have brushed up against, Lives with an imprint of you, That is trapped in their mind. Time may change you, But your memory forever remains the same. It's like leaving each place, That you have… Continue reading Shadows have remained

dancing…..

Dancing to the tunes of destiny, She pirouetted to fame, The decibels rose and fell, Still she danced to rythm of life, Impervious to the cacophony around .

Thursday photo prompt: Secret #writephoto

The silver key, Etched sublime, By Life's fine hand, A custodian to Life's cache, That is weathered, Seasoned by Time's travails. Shielding her inner self, From the stormy tempests, And wailing gales, For it would not unlock the door, That opened into the caverns of her heart.

Play Of Time

You spend years of life, Years of life that go by, Years that you dreamt of, Years that you cherished with dreams of life. Years roll by, All in a silent cacophony, The nimble tread of time, You failed to hear it's chimes, It eavesdropped, It knew your secret desires. But the stealthy elf, It… Continue reading Play Of Time

Fly unbidden

When mind is in a state of suspended animation, Let your thoughts flow far and wide, Open the doors, Unlock the windows, See far and hear more. Let new imprints be drawn on the blank canvas, Let new decibels be recorded in the archives. A flurry of thoughts, A downpour of emotions, Leaves you confused.… Continue reading Fly unbidden

A Question

Doing the daily things, The hours go by. The days go by. The weeks go by. The months go by. The years go by. And then one day, I wake up from the stupefied slumber, Hair all tousselled, Eyes sleep puffed, And mind in inertia. I wake up, And ask myself aloud, A litany of… Continue reading A Question
