A Quest on Overdrive … :)

An eccentric rambler on life's lessons and mercies, found and lost… :)

Cross Hairs


I’d set my sights on you
Long before you knew it
You know

Heck! Long before I knew
I must admit!
Destiny? Karma?

It just took time-
Patient, abiding time
Stealthy, secretive time

Time- cyclical, linear
Convergent, or spinning out
It had to bring you in.

For, how long could you hide out
In the nebulous mists, with
The certainty of existence?

That bond, born way before us,
Linking us together, friend or foe,
Had to flush you out

Bring you into heartbeat distance
Into resonating, stirring nearness
The whiff of your being; so fragrant…

I look up, there is no escape!
I’m locked in the cross hairs of your glance
Existence ceases; obliterates, into life, and Love.

Day#7 of #NaPoWriMo 🙂

And at the end of this write, as I tried to close it, while watching that excellent romantic film, “The Lake House”, Kate (in the film, Sandra Bullock) quotes from Jane Austen’s “Persuasion”

“There could have been no two hearts so open, no tastes so similar, no feelings so in unison”

What a perfect ending 🙂 Not a coincidence!

  1. Angry tresses was my initial reaction
    Before i got to the rest of the action
    Setting one’s sights
    Into nebulous lights
    Makes for poetic traction!

    • Hahaha! Poetic traction it is, Gulshan, even when there is none 😀 The posts are getting nonsensical’er’ by the day, but at least they are making themselves available, them words 😀


  2. Is it the case of the hunter becoming the hunted?
    all the defences suddenly being blunted.
    Is that what the mind knowingly wanted?
    to fall prey, like a person who is addicted.
