She breathes….

She slowly breathes life into me,
The otherwise mundane,
Decapitated meaning of rhyme,
Brings me news of places I had left,
In utter jittery, callousness of that time,
Carries me sometimes, pushes me the other,
The chains that bound my valleys of lime,
She surely knows her way around the rough edges,
Some of her and even of mine,
It’s hard I tell her when she inquires,
My head down, the weight of the unknown,
That shrivels my nails,
And burn my sky dry,
I sometimes look into her eyes,
For they sing me a sweet melody,
Bravo! my heart shouts,
The hands clap in applause,
And I lay down,
In her lap,
As she covers the sun,
With an eclipse golden,
Like a river that sobs through the agitating night….

A Story..

This is a story of a man with no glory,
Sitting on the bank he was all hoary,
Nowhere seemed to be his only destination,
His mind took him on a trip far too animation,
Born in a family with many stories,
He was the one who lacked his own fairies,
Everyday he would wake upto a mission,
Survive, live, prove was his only remission,
His presence was never acknowledged,
Still he drove in his shoes far from being hedged,
He would work day and night,
Thought there was a star beyond the night,
He would let the stomach rumble,
Forget that there is something called hunger,
Success never seemed any close,
Yet he never distanced from his Foes,
I will work till I die,
I will work till I cannot try,
And a day came in his time,
He died on a day in our time,
He lost himself over the notion of success,
See that man sitting on the bank,
He was a struggler once,
Said a moving stranger to me once,
Now he is a person we all remember,
From the time we can remember,
He has changed the definition of success,
Made us proud,
Made our city a memorial,
Why is he all alone then,
Sitting on the bank with nothing but an old den,
Oh, you see he is the man who left everything for success,
Broke down company with all his peeps,
And today he is sitting on the creek,
Thinking about the days that passed away,
I see a gloom in his eyes,
Success was his but he was all alone,
The man on the bank took a deep breath,
Stood up, put on his white sheath,
The man had won I told myself,
Had achieved Heights immeasurable,
But now he needed something more,
Alas, everything is not sold in the shops no more.
