Too much of a good thing?

Dear readers, here is a short story I wrote some time ago. Hope you like it!

“I can’t wait to go to Mumbai!’ he cried, jumping up and down around his mother, who didn’t seem to share his enthusiasm. But of course, he didn’t let that bother him. He was too excited to care.

“Stop irritating me, Rama.” His mother was busy in the kitchen, her fingers expertly kneading the dough for the hot rotis (Indian bread) they were to have in a while. He plopped himself onto the platform, beside the dough bowl, desperate to get her attention.

“Do you know what I plan to do there?”, he asked, holding his mother’s face in his tiny hands, forcing her to look at him.

Serious Contemplation…

Oh poor little angel,

How I wish I knew

what you think of,

Underneath the tensed

brows of your

innocent mind,

Oh what would I give,

to share a portion

of your precious

time…

Lost…

Nestled somewhere amidst

the soft, fluffy, clouds of

self withdrawal and

sinful fantasies,

I slip into the

pool of

unearthly transcendence…

I dare not quit dreaming…

Mystery

A million ‘YOU’s,

A million minds,

Every eye

a different sight,

A piece of cake for

the arrogant few,

A sordid tale for

the sinful lives,

A hopeless dream for

the gloomy ones,

 A smoldering mystery for

those destined,

It’s all in the eyes,

say a few,

It’s beyond you,

Go live a life…

Dance of Nerves

That minute millisecond,

The fraction of a heartbeat,

The nowhere terrain between

‘there’ and ‘getting’,

The insufferable nerves,

the frenzied apathy

of eyes unaware of the

trials of destiny,

The inconsolable tears,

Letting go…

As the captive grains of

self control, gracefully

slip off the nimble

fingers of my

ageless soul, I

can’t help but

admire the sparkle

in their dance, as I

humbly learn the

art of letting go…

Playful Raindrops

Linger on me like

playful raindrops,

trickling down smooth

contours of a

beautiful rose,

Mesmerized by the

unyielding beauty,

unmindful of

their own…

Scary Love

Love can sometimes scare you so much more than hate…

Its gentle nudge threatening to bring down ginormous

walls you built around yourself, its warm embrace

eager to mend the brittle soul, weary from

thoughts of innumerable battles

ahead, its twinkling eyes,

seeing only beauty

in every flaw,

you can’t

help

but escape

into a dream and

its scary to come out….

Life

Dive into

the depths of infinity that

reside in your mind, kicking

against the might of demons lurking

outside, let the ripples of your fall reverberate in

Crumbling Camphor

All it took was a careless

nudge of the burning match for

the sleeping pores of

dreamy camphor to

explode into

ravenous ecstasy,

consuming the greed of

perpetual desire,

being consumed by its

own fallacy,

disappearing into

nothing,

leaving behind

scented fantasy…
