soul-mates

whether it's in your coming in
or departing,
that my heart would sleep?
the one who succumbs,
isn't really the heart
those are the memories.

you gave me enough reasons
to know you well,
only to leave me behind
forging links to the girl
whom i had known
once, a long time back.

not that our love was
a bond that had a time-frame,
it's still there
and not that our feelings
have dissipated.
for they have grown
immensely like the twigs

it could be true
that our meeting
was to help us discover
how full of wonder
the person in the either of us
is.

sometimes, it takes
the interaction of soul-mates
to lead the path
for each other.
they might not be together
for every sunrise & sunset
but their breaths say
the definite songs
of their togetherness.

i love you,
oh departing lover
that's what i always
had for you.

The best thing about friends is that they turn out to be the most supportive people on the planet, especially when we need it the most. I was tensed regarding what they would say to me for delaying the meetup, but what I received were congratulations and good-luck messages!

I left for the competition on Monday and then finally we planned to meet on Friday! This called for excitement when I took my camera bag along while leaving from home to see them. All I remember is telling Ankur to take me to the Hanuman temple, a very famous temple in Jhandewalan which is i…

Joy

"Through the roads of lustre and potential I would like to walk", said the boy.
"Destiny takes us through many hills,"
said an old man in glee.
"Why are you happy? I ask thee."
Replied the young boy.
"Oh, that, it's because I see myself in you,
you little champ!"

The two of them walked through the street,
they felt the downpour of rain, 
smiles on their faces, they danced
in hunky-dory, for friendship had
opened its wings of acceptance;
and the old man had found his childhood.
