An answered prayer

Your heart is divine
Your love is pure
I can’t believe my luck
But for one thing I am sure

There is nothing I crave more
Than your affection
A life with your lights
Is my only aspiration

The sound of your song
Puts me in a trance
You leave me spellbound
Mesmerizing is your every glance

I think of you day and night
I long for your touch
I may not be worthy of you
But I love you so much

You’re the answer to my prayers
You’re the liberation of my soul
My lifeblood you are
You are my only goal

Your spirit, your chant
Now dwell in me
You’re my goddess
Your truth has set me free!

My enchantress

The darkness in my soul
That cast a shadow over me
Your enchanting presence chased it away
It allowed me to see

The signs of life that I didn’t know existed
They are stronger than ever
My lonely path to my end
Now leads me to you forever

You breathed into me a new hope
You acted for me a savior
But if you walk away from me
Just do me a favor

Put a dagger through my chest
So that my heart doesn't beat again
Burn me down to ashes
So that I don’t live in vain

You know I live for you
You know for you I’ll die
So don’t give up on me, my love
Give me a chance; just let me try

I’ll find a way for us
I’ll break the walls that stand between
Just ride with me through the end
We’ll find the pasture green

So, let me be enchanted by you
Let me be your protection from storm
Just don’t leave me alone, my enchantress
Let me burn for you; I’ll always keep you warm

You're the only one

The hope of tomorrow
Was never brighter like this before
The light at the end of the tunnel
Now shines even more

No longer do I exist
I have become a part of you
I see the eternal sunshine through your eyes
Do you see it through me too?

You sit beside me
And leave me speechless
The touch of your soft petals
Takes away all my emptiness

How I crave your arms
Holding me to my bones
It sends a chill through me spine
Makes me take on the world unknown

Let me hold your hand
And walk you through my wasteland
Perhaps a flower will bloom on it
Perhaps my world will breathe again

So, the stars shine brighter now
As I lay helpless in your arms
My destiny you have become
You are my only love, my only charm

My love

The flame that burns me
The flame that keeps me alive
You sparked it in me, my love
You are the one for whom I strive

I wandered away in darkness
You showed me the light of tomorrow
Your touch was all I needed, my love
You took away the pain, the sorrow

My future is with you
I can’t imagine it any other way
You are the only one, my love
I can never let you go away

Your eyes give me strength
Your touch gives me life
The purity of your soul, my love
Takes away all my strife

So when I say this
I say it from my heart
I’ll live forever for you, my love
Till death do us apart

No one but you

I wore a mask everyday
Never to show what I am deep inside
But you changed everything
Ripped the mask off, threw it by the side

You peeked through my naked soul
You made me come clean
You erased the memories of pain
You showed me the path unseen

No longer do I weep for the untraveled roads
No longer am I afraid of the light
I just want to hold your hand
Look in your eyes all day, all night

I want to forget the strife
Of a life unbecoming for me
Oh my endearing enchantress!
You is all I want to see

So please complete my existence
Or leave me to a life I rue
But keep me in your memory
I live for no one but you

New hope

It was the end of the road
A path I never saw
The hope that was gone
But you woke the emotions raw

My sanity was fading
Yet I wanted to feel alive
You came like a breath of fresh air
You made me want to survive

Please walk with me till the road lasts
Don’t give up on me now
Please save me from myself
Let me let go my broken vow

The resentment of unfulfilled dreams
Let me wash them away
Even if it is just a fleeting moment
It’s my eternity, I will be okay

So don’t let my hope die
Let me savor every moment
Set my demons free
Let me cherish your enchanting scent

Walk by my side
And dream of the morrow
Just hold my hand
Let me take all your sorrow

I’ve lived before
But only today I feel alive
You have given me new hope
Together with you, maybe, I will survive

I met a stranger

I met a stranger
Some stranger she was
An influence of light
A life from another realm she was

Her touch was tender
A sight of Dahlia she was
The heart of a song
The soul of calm she was

She was a crusade
My suppressed thought she was
The silence of tumult
The noise of tranquility she was

My moment of weakness
My eternal strength she was
The feeling of harmony
My chaotic chant she was

I forged a lie
Its truth she was
She was my obliteration
My ascension she was

I pinned my hope on her
My dream she was
But I realized my fault
Just an apparition she was

So, I looked at her
There, there she was
I met a stranger

Only a stranger she was

My friend

Talk to me, my friend
Walk with me, my friend
Just hold my hand
Let me soak it all in, my friend

Make hay with me, my friend
Share your tears with me, my friend
If the going gets tough
Don’t forget to call me, my friend

Make a wish with me, my friend
See a dream with me, my friend
Find your true calling
And let me be your shield, my friend

Fight with me, my friend
Toast with me, my friend
Have your good times with all
But don’t forget me in your bad times, my friend

So, talk to me, my friend
Walk with me, my friend
Sit alongside me

And, just be my friend


The strength in my soul
The beat of my heart
All was gone as I begged for mercy
All was lost, I was ripped apart

I was forced to give up
I was ready to move on
But then came a ray of light
To melt a heart forlorn

I couldn't fathom the feeling
The signs of life were long gone
But what had changed the mood
What had breathed into me a new song?

The fading eyes of yesterday
Were showing signs of revival
I had been dead for a long time
But why do I now long for survival?

No, this cannot be my salvation
I have been there before
I have seen the destruction of dreams
That life that I abhor

So, leave me by the wayside
Don’t sing those cheerful verses
I am a bottomless pit of despair
I am the epitome of blasphemy and curses

Go, live your dreams
And sing your beautiful song
I am no phoenix
Love has been a chimera all along

After a long tiring day of work, I return home. Ah, home sweet home! There’s nothing like home, is there? After a hard day’s work, I wanted to sit back and relax. I switch the TV on and fire up my laptop. What was it my colleague told me today? I was trying to recall the name of that new artist she told me about. That’s okay! I’ll find it on internet. And internet means google to me. If Google can’t find something, it doesn’t exist for me. So, here I am sitting with my laptop, thinking of the name she told me. I open Google Chrome. It doesn’t start. Something must be wrong. I restart Chrome, but it still doesn’t show anything. No worries! I keep the laptop down and go for a shower.

I come back and take a peep at my laptop screen. Chrome still hasn’t showed up anything. Oh god! Chrome is broken? Again? More than that, I feared  something else. I had to use ‘Internet Explorer.’ I don’t remember when I used it last. With my fingers trembling with fear, I point the pointer at the IE logo, take a deep breath, and double click it. Then I wait. And wait. And wait some more. Finally, IE opens up a window for me. Phew! It still works. Now, I crackle my fingers and start typing the URL. I press enter and I wait. And wait. And wait more. Stupid IE! I check into my internet connection. Well, that’s working. Suddenly, I see the page loading some text. About time! But no! What is it written here! ‘The page you requested doesn’t exist.’ No! It can’t be right! Just yesterday it was working. I had checked out the new Nike shoes that my friend told me about not long ago. In the morning, I searched about how to merge my pdf files into a new pdf file.

I have a sinking feeling. It could be just me. I pick my cell phone up and try calling my friend. But there’s no sound. I check my phone screen. My phone’s dead! A message flashes on the screen. ‘ doesn’t exist.’  Suddenly, everything in front of my goes dark. I sink into my couch. What’s going on!  I switch my TV on. And I cannot believe my eyes. The headline reads ‘BREAKING NEWS: Google no more. Market crashes!’ I sit there on my couch, motionless. The words ringing in my ears. Google no more. This can’t be happening! I check on my android watch. It shows nothing. No Google, no chrome, no android, no life! I look around me. What do I do? I palpitate. I could no longer see a purpose to my life. How would I WhatsApp my girl now? How would I forward all those useless messages no one reads? What about Candy Crush? I feel numb. My feet are cold. But somehow I gather myself and walk out the door.

I see my neighbor. He is crying. “What happened?” I ask. Sobbing, he tells me, “There no google. How will my son complete his studies now? How will I surf porn? How will my wife shop?” He then throws himself under a bus! I walk through the streets. I see live zombies, staring at their blank phone screens. People are no longer people. The society as we know is crumbling down. No more selfies. I look around me and I see people not knowing what to do. I decide to…

It’s 6 in the morning. “NO!!!” With a shudder, I jump out of my bed. I look at my phone ringing beside me. I check up my watch. “6:00 am.” I look around me. Everything’s normal. Google’s still here! Our Society is saved! No one has to die anymore! I press my phone to my chest. I am never ever letting you go. I sigh in peace.

A Final Goodbye

I cried when you were here
I cried when you walked away
The pain was too much to bear
But I let you go, I couldn’t say

I remember what you told me,
“Never say goodbye.”
But now that you’re not here
Can my soul finally die?

I know it doesn’t matter to you
I know you don’t writhe
And even if I suffer a little
For you, it’ll be alright

The lights have faded
The stars don’t shine
But I won’t beg for mercy
You’re not divine

I kept up the masquerade
But you wanted out
So what does it matter?
Why should I have doubt?

Take away all your misery
Take away all your pain
Just give me my sanity back
I lost it for you in vain

The emptiness of tomorrow
I’ll overcome today
The pain and the sorrow
I’ll leave them in yesterday

So, don’t just walk away
Give me one fleeting eye
There’s nothing I’ll say

Just kiss you a final good bye
