Unspoken Unsaid

Between a stress and a sigh
Before you say goodbye
Much before you feel all alone
In between long pauses on telephone
I wish I could say
I miss you everyday

Between my fingers I felt 
No matter how tightly I held
Your touch lingered long past midnight
Spelling the aura so bright
I wish I could say
You were with me yesterday

Sketching the rosy days ahead
Countless times I've said
Distance burgeons the love
Smoothening the edges somewhat rough
But I wish I could stay
Much close to you every single day

Read between unspoken lines
You'll find thousand signs
Many kisses resting on your blue shirt
Walls of bedroom echoing my words
I wish You to say 
You waiting for me every single day

Don't You Quit


When things go wrong, as they often will,
When the traffic you were building, goes downhill,
When the stats are low and the spams are high,
And you want to write for contests, but you have to sigh,
When schedule is pressing you down a bit -
You must blog, don't you quit.

Life is crazy with work and more work,
As my regular readers must have learnt,
Few of the fellas have turned around,
You see, my comment section is hit by some sort of drought.
Don't give up, Saru; numbers will eventually grow -
Remember you were doing 'Ok' just a few months ago.

I read my favorite blogs often, I stress,
It seems I'm unable to comment on Wordpress;
Often I struggle to keep up pace,
My 3G works as 2G and net is out in space;
Social Network presence too have drowned,
How I curse slow net for losing ground.

Success is failure turned inside out -
Frankly, right now I'm having doubts,
And you never can tell how creatively orphan I feel,
With less traffic, you almost lose your zeal;
So sticking to the fight when I'm hardest hit -
Post every Monday, don't you quit.

P. S. - Work, responsibilities and most importantly, slow net connection is keeping me a little away from blogging. Sorry for not replying to all your comments individually and not reading your blogs. Time is also a big constraint these days. Grateful that I still have your company on my blog. Thanks for gracing it with your presence.

Lost Abode

I liked everything to be perfect,
Until one day I found.
Some poems don’t rhyme,
Some words don’t weigh,      
And some smiles always fade.
Unlike some happy faces,
These lips are now closed.
Drowned in the flood of tears,
They lost their abode.
Can I curse him?
For leaving me in the lurch.
Without even saying a word,
Abandoned me in this never ending search.
A plateau of concrete,
Has his name with 'dates.'
Symphonies created by his memory,
Play low-key on my fate.
Each morning I bathe myself,
Then walk bare-feet, muddling my toes.
Inching towards my place of solace,
I decorate his name with a rose.

*Based on a story of a war widow and is published in the book 'Rousing Cadence'
