THE BOOK YOU GAVE ME

That book,
This book
The book that you gave me
Brings a trail of memories
And melts my brittle bones
At the gaze of it
I bring to memory how hard our hearts where bound
The halls behind of our lips wound resound
Every bit of laughter
Every moment there after

When I open its pages
I behold your finger prints
Like an embroidery print embedded therein
And as I feel through the prints
An alley of images flash through my mind
Images of you holding my hand
As we embarked on that escaped
Into the woods bare feet
And there we would play hide and seek

But here i am
Sprawling languorously on this couch
Nostalgia mildly encroaching
While my fingers lie still on the pages
Of this book that enrages every thought of you
This book that you gave me
Speaks volumes and volumes trust me

Ocean Waves

Ocean Waves

At this time of the year
Love is like an angry sea,
With waves coming from all the angles,
Making all relationship struggle,
Tearing relationships,
The same way waves tear ships.

The ocean is endlessness with a bottom that only God's feet can get to
The intensity of the waves can always tell us her mood

The waves of the ocean is an ancient dance
The people of the water understand its power

The waves of the ocean have seen the spirit of The Almighty
Only the voice of God can silence her tantrum

  A sailing tempest ship glides
     Through the tensed waves of the ocean
  And doubts my destination home.

The stormy sea, the fear and the lost
Of dear ones amidst troubles
We shall sail to the coast.
