The culmination of an era
The beginning of a new page.
Swam across towards the unknown,
An island of a New Age.

An aura of exhilarating feeling,
A feeling of success,
wrenching through the heart,
past is back packed, future rests on palms.

See the sun at the horizon,
Know it to rise in some other place.
Have to reach there,
Once again a new race.

Memories framed for eternity,
Written in bold and italics.
Tough times and tears will fade,
Smiles will stay as relict.

Sailed across the head wind,
Muscled the waves.
Shore is in sight,
Wear your shoes,
Future is just a walk in the park.

Its cold how silence wraps up the world,
But all settle in the warmth of its arms.
Trees just bow down,
And the breeze just rests at its feet.

Outrageous gulls find calm on roofs,
Sun makes a move towards its bed.
Rivers hold their bells from jingle,
Sky blushes until its red.

A sweet fragrance of peace,
Erupts from the earth.
Windows light up like stars,
Solitude fills up with mirth.

Takes the form of the desired being,
Talks the way your love would do.
Entwined fingers, entangled breath,
Walk miles on your dream’ path.

How empowered is silence indeed,
Beyond the loudest of the shores.
Modest, timid, effervescent,
Still ever pervasive and reclusive.

Drenched heavy wings, unable to fly,
Felt lazy and started to fall.
Dived into the ocean of feelings,
Floating, breathless and high.

Clipped off the wings,
Swimming  through the ocean.
I love it and it loves me,
No more I want the sky.

Heart beating in every corner of my veins,
A million hearts to live and love.
Warmth cuts through the ocean
And sets it on fire.

An unfathomed bliss,
No dream come true can fulfil.
No island of desires to wish,
Just be here and drown here.

Just reach the depth of it,
Kiss it once, close to the heart.
Feel it in my veins,
And not hope for it to kiss back.

I am gonna fly,
Its just a matter of time.
Even time has no option,
Than to just pass for me.

My wings are itching,
I can feel them gain strength.
I wish to see the earth,
Gleam at it, from high, high above.

I don’t want to sleep,
Not rest a moment.
Coz i want to live my dream,
Not just see it.

I have loads of work,
My fingers don’t tire.
The fear is ,I will live all my dreams
and wont have any to live more.

But then I will sleep,
And when I wake up ,
I'll wake up with wings,
So i don’t have to wait for it to grow.

Coz I know from my heart,
And I don’t believe it ,
When people say.
Sky is the limit.

                                                                ... Shiv.

Blisters on my palms,
Cant draw a smile on the brow.
Lips have forgotten their walk,
Weary they tread to words.

Nails etch on the skin,
Blood flows in a rhyme,
Deep scars, shallow pain,
Distracted by the wind’s chime.

A strand of hair,
Water in the eys.
A million suns take birth,
Sky follows benign.

Quiet, content within itself,
Lying is a lifeless sword.
Hidinh itf face under a cap,
Unless told, utters no word.

When shaken and asked,
Bout the moments of silence,
It stood up on the canvas,
And painted these words.

                                                                … Shiv.

Restless canoe on a calm sea,
Thats mind and soul to be.
Perseverance defines integrity,
Self belief elevates passion.
Truth only exists everywhere,
Rest is illusion we want to see.
With closed eyes we walk,
Our feet we cant even see.
Love exists within,
Otherwise trees wont stand,
Even after being cut.
Nor clouds hover after going dry.
There is no reason for air to be around,
We do no good to it.
Love is no give and take,
Its bliss; it exists; it alone persists.
Love is in no eyes, nor actions,
Its felt, it plants itself from soul to soul.
Make our souls fertile,
Let love flourish, let us be the fruit of it.
                                                                                ... Shiv.

Rolling on the stomach,
Palms tucked on the chest.
To hold the heart from falling,
To save a ruptured chest.

The desire to jump out,
Breathe scent of the air.
To stretch arms of laziness,
Outside the cage of despair.

To ponder unasked questions,
To keep sleep, waiting and awake.
To make a thread of thoughts,
For unfulfillment’s sake.

To cry, not out of pain,
But just to know we can.
Comfort that our heart is good,
Intend no harm if we ran.

And just when sleep is tired of waiting,
It pulls over the blanket.
Gathers all dirt of our brain,
And stuffs it in his pocket.

Morning when I wake,
My tears are all dry.
My worries all waned,
And smiling, sleep waves good bye.
