Flooded
By serenity
Heart and soul
Smile
All the time
~
Unwittingly
Lent ears
To tales
of woe fill
Heart, mind
~
Mouthing
Platitudes
I crazily splash
In out of depth
Waters
~
Heart
Wonders
How to succor
When innermost self
Stays detached witness
~
Standing at a point
Of no return, arrived
At with greatest of efforts
I engage at being fully engaged
disengaged
~
Life
Is a drama and
I am
the stage, props
actor, audience, curtain drops!
~
Woe
Is
Just
Not me
Anymore
~
I
Am
Here
There
Everywhere

mutual love

Heart oozes sighs in tears
As i retrace our time together
In length, depth, years
You
Supremely assured, strong
With world as your oyster
Me
diffident bookworm
Learning to be firm, ramrod
strong as you were
Yet
We were as different
As chalk and cheese
In nature
But
Were same
in looks, features
mannerisms
~
Usually
We collided more
Than colluded or
Concurred
And
That’s how
We were
Yet
Mutual love
Was a great binder

Testing
Retesting
By

Yet
Bloodlines
And
Thinning

In

To self
For

Yet

And
Handles
On
Life
Are
As usual
Works
In
Progress
As
I
Digress
Once
Again!

At this point life
I don’t know
Who
Woos
Whom
~
But
let me
tell you
Life
You
Amuse
me
so

Milieux

Which milieu
Defines
Me
Wigging self
In comfortable
Niches
I search
Me
In me
I belong
Yet do not
Disconcertingly
At what point
Did i vanish
Me from me
Well traveled
Time sculpted
I am no longer me
I am
Neither here
Now, nor there
I’ve finally
Become Alice in life
Wrought vanishing acts
