So near,yet so far...

These lines were thought out over the past few weeks. Its ironical that things can change so quickly as a result of which the lines dont hold good anymore…or atleast they have become irrelevant now.Irrespective of that I’m posting them here…

So near yet so far,
Yeah,that’s where you are…
Like i gaze into the sky ,at a star
So near yet so far…


My heart churns out hope
Whilst my mind says nope…
With your prolonged silence,unable I’m to cope
Just cant be happy,for there’s no scope…


Of my mind and heart,its a constant battle
Caught in the crossfire,its a war i just cant scuttle
To bear this for too long,I just don’t have the mettle
Emotions within, on the verge of exploding at full throttle…


Descending into sleep,with a mindful of you…
These are words,rooted with feelings so true
Will wake up again,with thoughts of you…
Turning despair into hope anew


Charmed by your smile and smitten by your eyes,
Wings lent by your presence,time just takes off and flies…
Makes my heart skip beats and leaves me heaving sighs
Just cant stop wondering at you,the princess of my skies…


Tough is expressing,
Tougher is waiting,
For my heart that’s longing,
For your love,that’s eluding…

Cardio-Cerebral Valentosis

This poem was posted as an entry to the Valentine's day blogging carnival in our corporate blogging portal. This was originally published there in Feb'2010.There are references to the competition(V Day-Carnival on Channel-One) and I have preferred to retain them here.


When in Rome,do as the Romans do. So when its V-day time and you are on ch-1, you have no other option but to oblige. Its like a virus which has spread like wild fire and I haven’t had any preventive vaccines nor am I made of any fire proof material. Excuse me if the title sounds like a pathetic disease or suffering but it is something that does affect our brains and hearts, positively or negatively. Its a bandwidth hogger. What I have here is a set of couplets that I could come up with over the last few days. Whats interesting is that almost all of these lines popped out while I was busy working at office ;)


Lost in your thought,
In mid air I float…

Randomly taking flight,
Like a feather I feel so light…

Into the heavens I disappear,
Pure bliss is what I discover…

And back to my senses when I crash,
Fantasies they all go awash…

Making me hope so badly,
May these turn into reality…

Am wondering you might not feel the way,
I do about you,night and day…

Is it just a phase,or is it for real,
All I know is ,its a feeling so magical!

Wanna walk along the sea  holding your hand,
Waves  caressing our feet, barefooted on the sand…

Am lonely and grave,
Your company is all I crave…

From January to December, year after year,
Want to be with you forever…


I'm too lazy to insert fancy pics in between those lines...so I have left it bland...

Poignance in poetry

This was a poem I posted on our corporate blogging portal,channel-one an year back.
These are a few lines which popped out of nowhere one fine night and they took this form…

You’re all over my mind,
Nostalgia,this is one of a kind…

You are nowhere near,
How i wish you were here….

Those memories, those moments,
Tears they still foment….

Been some time now that you moved on,
Will you ever fade out of my horizon?

Never will I see you again,
Truth it is,simple and plain…

On a day as special as this,
All I pray,is for your well being and bliss…

For wherever you are,you deserve the best,
Because angels like you are a cut above the rest…

With due apologies to all the serious poets out there,this is all I could manage. Don’t know if it sounds silly. But what the heck. I am posting it. Brickbats are welcome. (Bouquets too,of course, but that goes without saying.)Do post your honest opinions...
