Waves and autumn leaves having the sun locked inside
Rain and solitary steps and ghosts laughing from afar
Sleepless nights and secrets unfolding in the dark
Loss and thrill mixed in every morning chill
Stories thrown away like the sand on a narrow shore…
They all rush in a corner from the past
As I try to leave a part of me behind.
And the roads tangle in my heart
And the evenings are a ticket to a lost and crowded land
Fairies whisper hidden in a hallow sound, subduing my mind
Clowns joggling with pieces of a flawed plan
Frost preparing the way for the spring to come and stay…
They all cram in a play keeping the curtains away
As I try to hatch a story for the future moments.
Changes, restraints, exuberant bolts
Will strokes and motionless falls
Waving hands and memories and joyful scents
Fury mingled with submission for the happenings that never stood a chance
Puzzles and times that sank in the oblivion train
Rivers bringing out the soldier in me, and the dreamer for the wide-eyed bits…
They all leave a trace
As I try to move against the tide and breath in frenzy.
