*Sigh*


A perfect sunset on a perfect beach.

The white sand feels so nice and the calmness of the sea even better,

The only thing that doesn’t feel good is the Truth.

wr

The look in your eyes not the same anymore.

I stand in the street, stream of tears flooding my face,

I thought you would always be there for me.

I’m walking back home, struggling my way through this thick darkness.

Those glittering memories rush through my mind.

A little further I go, it’s getting too cold for me to walk ,my knees lock;

I stand.

The autumn leaves creating a song,

Song for the lost soul..for the lost love.

It feels like all of it was just a fling to you.

Tongue cut, throat choke,

Its getting too tough for me to accept this.

An empty street.. And.. A silence..that pinches me on the inside..!!

Gathering myself, next step I take..towards.. towards where it ends..!!

Walking by the old church,a wave of peace crosses my mind,

I stop, stare and ponder..over..what I don’t have..what I miss..what I lost.!!

The wind whistled once again..!!

Still staring at the church, there is something that crosses through me and gets to my mind.

It wants 2 say.. **Sigh** it says ” Take a Leap, Don’t Regret”.

Another step, off 2 my place..There I stand with a surprising peace,

At the gate.. On the doorway, the mat says “Welcome” .

I turn around 2 take a look n there you are..standing behind.. and all i do is Smile.. and say is “Goodbye”..!!

we

After every piece of sorrow..awaits a world of Joy. 🙂

POVERTY IS THE WORSE FORM OF VIOLENCE

MAHATMA GANDHI

AND SHE ENDED HER SADNESS


Standing on the edge of the cliff with her head held down.

A moonlit night.

Her gaze is piercing every ripple of water..

For her,it was all there and it was always gone..!!

and then..

Thoughts cross over, running a marathon, smashing into one another..!!

With moist cheeks, pale dry lips..eyes staring deep into the water.. Into the serenity, depth and peace of the sea..!!

Her heart was melting by now..!!

Just a step..forward or backward..!!

Emotions and sadness overpowered and played catalyst to help her decide..!!

With fingers twisted..heart pounding.. a last Cry..!!

The wind playing with her hair..!!

Peaceful silence..”Let it Go”..

A deep breath.. *SIGH*..

Eyes closed..Body light..and..

.. A step ahead..a leap.. the inviting water..distance lessened.. Air gushes..*peace*..finally..

the feet tear the water sheet…

*SPLASH*…

She cannot swim..!!

Buoyant forces..!!

..slowly the pull takes over..fishes..silver gaze. deep green darkness.. *EYES SHUT*…

Water Bed then, Coffin now..!!!
