Magic

Magic is in moments, it is in sparkles
It is that fascinating shine, that works
It is the hope, it is my only believe
Magic is that, which forever rules.

Captivates, when one rises early in serenity
Magnetic field resides in all its working
In the mist of the morning, or scent of sea
In the dew drops, and the illusionary star.

I call magic one’s breath, Sometimes call it love
In his irresistible charm, in my lurking blush
In the enchanting beauty, in the sweeping works
I call it all magic, that makes one smile.

Magical moments I stick to the memory, for smiles
Day light, or dim lights, they happening is the key
Some dance, some music, or maybe some plain talks
Some times, the first meet, sometimes the infinite.

People are the magic I know, some old, some new,
Some old that are strangers, some new that are love,
Some laughters, some hurt, some embrace, some parting,
Some ex flames, some new entrants, all is magical.

Some walk on the destiny road, alone or with someone
Some smiles, some peace, some loneliness, some company
Some seeking, some holding, A shoulder, A want
Entwined fingers, secure hands, magical embraces.

Love or companionship, hate or indifference
Magic resides in the song, or the rhythms
It resides in the heart, that finds its way
Unknown definition, but I call it life.

Numbers Speak

I know you hated me for them
But then I smiled with them
Gosh your memory, you often said
And these numbers, I loved.

End of January it was, you said
Twenty ninth, I whispered, teasingly
You smiled and said, tell when we met?
I smirked to mark another date then.

That thirty first haunted long
For you let anger spill once
Letting one go who held you close
I called it the dark new year’s.

Then there were few many’s
Like that twenty sixth
And that one twelfth dearest
Many more dates of memories.

What still haunts is a number two
For it influenced your birth
One who snatched away this heart
To smash it off beyond any repairs.

Friends who Touch the Soul

large (9)

Been a while I wrote here. Maybe lack of time. Lack of inspiration or just lack of myself. But then I had to write today. Not for myself or you but for people I made friends with yesterday.

It is not like I met strangers. I met people I have known for many months now. But the fact that I gel so well with them that it made it all worth it. From decisions that involved meeting one person to two person….to becoming a gang of four and man we had FUN.

I finally let my hair down after ages and ages. Doctorate had just made me such an apprehensive person. I preferred myself and family to friends or new acquintances and then I realised world has some warm nice people too. Some people exist who just know how to enjoy and let you do it without really judging you. And that are the kind of friends I like and so after many many years I made some real friends whom I absolutely love.

Also, I got drunk 😀 Now that was fun considering I had to take a subway to home after that. But then I reached home pretty fine and was like high on happiness and smiles and friends and looove.

It was a trip of food and drinks and gossips and coffee and the madness. It was like long time friends meeting up after ages and it was amazing.

And these guys made me meet myself so I am all in for meeting people, both old and new. And accepting life as it comes. Maybe life brings something nice now on.

So cheeers to you all:-

Apprehensions were many
Of a girl lost in pain
Hurt in the past more
And lonely in the present day.

Then some magic was sprinkled
In the rains full of blessings
As people believed in my worth
And wanted my presence to stay.

I took some steps, you covered others
Silence over powered by voices
Handshake led to empowering embraces
I tightly let you all enter, the heart.

Some intoxication, some foods and smiles
I was happily crazy in a company only mine
Lot to talk and so less of a time
And yet I was sure I made friends, for a lifetime.

I seek to meet you all, whenever I move ahead
To catch you when you fall, and be picked in my shreds
For it happens very less, we meet people loved so
It is like they touch souls, as if soul-mates.

Dedicated to Arch, AB and Aakansha 🙂

Today I say a small prayer of goodwill to us, for you are someone I want to keep with me always. I hope I never make you go away.
