-sigh of relief-

*sits next to window*

“Wow, I never thought it would come to this.” He sits there next to the window staring outside with a blank gaze.
“It’s been soo long since I last got to see you. I don’t think anyone could ever comprehend how peaceful this window used to be. I also don’t think I could explain to anyone the meaning that it means to me.” He continues to stare outside the window until the rain starts to pick up.
“All these city lights are just too gorgeous. I can’t believe I’m finishing up with the packing of this place.” As boxes liter the room he begins to feel the gut wrenching heartache that is to come.
“I miss you with all my heart Emily.”
Tears start to slide do...

#skylark challenge 2

From the Window
Trees, tall and narrow , Florida slash pines
With                          burnished trunks
                                  Fluffy green tips
                                   Interspersed with palmetto
Palms.                           Queen, cabbage, royal palms.                             Cars and highways roll
Thick.                            With noise pollution
Freedom.                        To breathe, to move
And
They do move to Florida
The Sunshine state
No one gloomy here today
Red cardinals and
Monarch butterflies
Parakeets and                     Parrots
Always in
Motion
Soak up
The sun
All mine.

What I see from the window is the
night sky full of stars and in those stars I try to find your loving face.

What I see from the window is the
unfamiliar path and in that blowing wind
I try to recall your familiar fragrance .

What I see from the window is the scorching sun and remember the days i have walked beside you with no fatigue what so ever.

What I see from the window is the
cold rain and unknowingly calling your name with each blow of water on my skin.

Rays of moonlight
Knocked at my window.
As I stood there wondering
If I could watch those stars closely
To see,
If they carry the same glow within,
Like they illuminate from outside.

         The Night Rendezvous

Sifting through the mist that clouds my view, I saw her standing across the room surrounded by a group of people who looked in awe of her presence. Her confidence radiating. And like a moth towards the flame, i found myself walking towards where she stood. The chatter is too loud and yet i can hear her laugh resonate in synch with the blood pumping through my veins, lighting my skin on fire. To calm the growing itch i look down only to find a pair of hands that belong to a girl that’s not me & look around if any notices the intruder only to find everyone already looking at me. Their eyes hollow and cold,sending a chill down my spine. & I realize the fact that i...

Skylark Challenege 2

What do you see from your window?

"Why do you not close your window? Why is it always open?," asked my friend, as she sipped her cold coffee.

I looked at it longingly and sighed. I cannot explain her, can I? She is too logical to understand my shit. She would argue, debate and convince me that I should, in fact keep the window closed. I smiled and let it go. I digressed from her curiosity and talked about all things non sense. She left around seven. The stars playing peekaboo and I awaited for the moon to shine.

After having a lazy cooked dinner, I  sat by the window and gazed. Like everyday.  

I waited for him to take a u-turn that day. I prayed till my cries turn...

Skylark Challenge 1

What does purple taste like?

I never liked purple. It looked overwhelming. Too much of ambition oozes out of it. Too much of loyalty. I never was them.

And then you breezed in one fine day. Lazily, wearing a purple tie and I thought "goodness, isn't he too much?"
And then you smiled at someone, switching on 101 bulbs around me. I was blinded by the dimples and the tie.

What happened next was only a fairy tale. You swept me off my feet and started a frenzy romantic, fullon affair. I was blown over by this relation. My favorite color became purple.

Out of the blue, you left. You defied everything purple stood for. You left a taste of bittersweet memories, a taste tha...

What does purple taste like?

Does it taste like us?

Me the red, and you the blue?

Does purple taste better if we mix more of blue and less of red?
Or vice versa?

Who will dominate?

Or should we just keep mixing untill the hue is just right.

A balance of two strong colors
In harmony.

So the taste of purple is like you, me and us.

What does purple taste like?
Like rich plum pudding dripping
Sweet on my tongue.
Like thick tense muscadine grapes
Exploding on my gums with nectar.
Like beefy starchy eggplant slices
Smothered in Parmesan and tomatoes.
Like young beets pickled and cold
Diced into fresh green salad with honey.
Like red cabbage cooked with corn beef
Slowly in a low heated iron pot.
Purple is the taste of jealousy,
The warm feeling of port wine
Poured down my throat to bury myself
From aching memories.
love the cabbage......him not so much....

For i know that you harbor hate
For you harbor anger
For you harbor anguish
But, never shall it be shown to the world outside
For like a sly fox, you wait in the forest to catch me at my weakest moment.....
But never shall i go weak and down on my knees
Just like in a jungle, where strength prevails and survival of the fittest is the way of life.....
In this concrete jungle, to overpower and survive is the law
To live on the edge is the prima-fecia of the elite
For like a lion i shall wait for your arrival in the hide of a lamb
For i shall keep waiting.........

PRESENCE (EXULTATION FOR A DEPARTING SKYLARK)

Unassuming skylark
the world imagines itself your colours
and overlooks the truth

Remarkable warbler
we pray to the heavens, soundless
you scream praises mid-flight

Lilliput bird
seemingly outpeacocked in size and beauty
-Shelley experienced the divine
