Full Moon

It was a full moon night
The moon shined bright
All stars were bedazzled
Street lights seemed vain

Empty streets glistened
Vehicles hastily passed
As I walked desolately
Unfeeling earth below

A dog howled, slid by
Sensing presence of
A departed lost soul
Seeking redemption

It was a full moon night
The moon shined bright
The wind echoed despair
As I walked in dead quiet

Clouds in blue sky
Wafting in breeze
Reminds me a bit
It's today isn't it?

The past receded
Into far oblivion
Marks slowly fade
For new beginning

There's but a patch
Of blue sky above
To light up the way
For a fulfilling day

Clouds in blue sky
Wafting in breeze
Reminds always
It's today isn't it?

In a tiny drop 
I felt the ocean

Now close to the sea 
It's the drop I crave

It's been quite a journey writing my poetry. I'm planning to take a meaningful break from writing for now. The reasons are simple, I wrote all I really could from my heart. Above a hundred poems in a span of about three years! And I wish to give my poetry a beautiful death, having written my best poem so far yesterday - 'Decade'. I don't intend to drag on with my poetry - repeating ideas, or let the passion burn out.

And this was meant to happen. I'm sorry to say that my poetry has always been the poetry of heartbreak. And the heartbreak too can't go on forever. May be when my perspective on life changes, and I find true harmony I'll resume writing poetry again. This time poetry on the fulfillment of love, not the tragic loss of it! So adios my dear imaginary readers. See you hopefully again only after my rebirth from darkness to light; else never again!

Goodbye dear!

Sometimes I wonder how it'll be
If after a decade again we meet
Accidentally for moments brief
Will it be romantic, bitter sweet

Or shall we resume our conflict
Egos that tore us apart bit by bit
Or will time have totally healed
The hurt we needlessly received

Will we remember idiosyncrasies
Our trivial unique characteristics
Or will time have wiped memories
We'll meet as we'd met first indeed

Strange are paths of our lives
Yet stranger are strings of love
Twisting, turning, forking out
Taking leaps, on and back time

It's no wonder, the complex mesh
Of human hearts is so intertwined
Conflicting bonds holding society
In it's confines we all live and die

The safety net of heart's bonds
Keep us from falling into abyss
Infinite expanse of space-time
Where we are but minute dust

Yet in everyone's life there's time
When mesh of love is torn apart
Dangling on frail broken cords
On the edge, we glimpse infinite

You know what is true
There is a reason deep
Why I write my poetry
Why it resonates within

Why the surreal fantasy
It's all because of a page
Blank, white and so free
Where anything can be

This blank white page
Can take up any shape
It can spread its wings
And fly away in peace

But in real life it's not so
I'm trapped by mortality
My limitations set bounds
Yet mind craves to be free

So I seek my meagre refuge
Behind my words in poetry
Where there are no bounds
In a world I can truly be me

Hundreds of letters unanswered
Few thousand appeals unheard
Countless pleas always ignored
Billions of yearnings unresolved

Is it really how we've progressed
Is this our pride, vain mankind?
Has complacence made ignorant
Numbed us till compassion died

Look how our world burns around
War, poverty and baseless desires
What have we done? Created hell
In name of progression mankind
