The Gloomy Rain

Image result for free image of a lady waiting

It does rain and gloom does take over
Even the books I love incomprehensible

My window fogs
I look through its glace

The streetlights are just shining through
Don't they see that the light just barely illuminates

The darkness of the rainy night
Somehow overshadows the glaring lights

I sit and wait
My heart just aches..

All Lives Matter!!

Sometimes as you sit in the dark and wonder
Why the discrimination is so..
How  you get categorized
And labelled 
Why it hasn't changed your thinking much 
All through the decades you have lived

How did the world come to this stage
Where hate somewhat rules hearts with much at stake
Why is it still in force, this hate
Aren't we have supposed to have overcome it
Even as the earth revolves around you, you hear the whispers 
Some die mysteriously
Killed in a revengeful ploy
Some are killed outright
Was there a celebratory march with the last shot? 

It almost seems like mankind doesn't want to change
They prefer the discrimination
To feel somewhat like a hero
In the midst of blood thirsty egos

Yes they prefer
To label each other with colors
To direct hurtful tirades
To arm themselves with mortars
Thus taking innocent lives
And be champions of a dead generation

Why this consummation with color in the first place?

Yes, I believe they just want to go on
And not put down their weapons
I believe they are consumed by this innate thirst
To carry on with their misguided missions
To harbor ill-conceived grudges
Man-made most of them
Just to support their uncalled for cause

I tell you now ALL LIVES MATTER
Be the change and make it matter!!

ABOUT LOVE

Image result for free image of two lovers

I stop as the world revolves around me
Time standing still with me
Ticking with a magical pulse
Every minute brings with it an awakening
My heart beating along sometimes a little unevenly

Every word I breathe captures my raptured heart
Sometimes in stutter I falter for the right words
I stare with a wholehearted numbness
Not blank but in an enveloping cognizance

I watch lips that speak eloquently
And try to grasp at its meaning
I fumble as I begin to understand
In its necessitating

Is love so arduous

That I become a complexity

To You

Sometimes life takes us through
The widest of roads
Making us run in its speed
To reach our attempted goal
Thru its tiresome setbacks, pain
And tears…

Just know that you have beaten
All odds to reach that special destination
By your love and generosity
Not to mention you kindred heart…

Your beauty is emphasized
In your smile each day
And captured in a bottle of jar
Flaming red
Know that you are loved
By all you keep as your friend
Here and Everywhere

Right to the stars high up above…
