A Quest on Overdrive … :)

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

Whorls of Words…

Of whirlwinds and words
The way they drop tantalizingly out of reach
Or feather your cheeks lingering as they pass…
How they storm the bastion of close held secrets
Ferreting out strands of stray raw ones
So that the cold and hot, both hurt the exposed, worn nerve
Like a recurring toothache. One you cannot do anything about.

And yet again they become the salve.
Cocoon you in a verse, a story
Staying close till at least the scabs form.
I drink words this morning.

Catch 22

To be verbose.

And be quite drowned

Flailing as the words consume.

But if I did not,

The silence would suffocate

The love we have.

 

So, I dare not.

 

To reach out, dying to hold

Your hand, and tell you things

That would so heal us both.

But if I did, and you turned away

It would do me in, and therefore us.

Rent, quite rent, the fabric of a cherished togetherness.

 

I dare not.

 

To read each word you never write

In the pages I’ve collected in the memories

We’ve gifted each other. Hoping to see it for real.

And if you did write, and I read the pain you shared…

Would it not quite be my undoing?

 

Don’t, please. Or should I say, please?

 

The twain might never meet.

Or meet it might, in vain.

Till it does, I’ll yearn.

And once it does, I’ll dissemble.

 

Catch 22.

Love Looks Like This – III

78363_125773190818257_3630059_o

The grace of golden years
They wear it well 🙂

They’re the first expression of Love
The first feeling shown, lent, given,
For they are the first faces …
An umbrella, as it were
Sheltering, nurturing, sharing

Caring. Always.

Love. Daddy and Mummy ❤

Love looks like this – II

Tee hee… yes, sometimes it’s like this! Like episodes of a long running series, this day is going to cascade with some spectacular short-cuts as this one, as I race to Day 29, from this one, Day#16 🙂

Love – a four letter universe of
The intangible, the goosebumpy
The ticklish giggles
Slurrpy kissheys and hugs
A pops, moms, and
A wee wee universe too!

Love. Like nothing else 🙂

Love. Sigh. You’re looking at it!

My Arien, his Scorpio partner, and another Arien babe 🙂 Unbeatable, I tell you!

So this is Day#16, of Ramblings in February! 😛

Love looks like this – Part 1

You know the face of love.
It’s in the faces of those you love.
When they look with love, in they eyes
And their laughter is tinged and coloured with it!

Stay blessed my dearest Lion, and your lovely partner in life and love!

an

Neeti and Ashwin may you always laugh and love each other with the same wonder!
