designed to destroy

Sunshine in my hair
in your eyes
on my shoulder…

Slow trickling sunset
disheveled in the leaves
tinkling with cool summer breeze

Leisurely appearance of the stars
A distant strain of some forgotten melody

Gradually…
Extinct Awareness
Extant Energy

All that remains,
In the twitter of twilight
Is
Stillness of the air between us…

The hum of silence rises in tempo,
And, am mildly scared…
You can hear the song

Archaic emotions
New feelings

The difference between the dusk and dawn melts
Its just red wine…

And though, you don’t say anything
Nor do I breathe a word

Winged, I swing on the clouds
Wind flirts with my hair
Kisses my cheeks
And, for the moment
I exist, only in the moment

There isn’t a before
Nor an after…

A shy, unsure… step
A cautious skip
A few ghost like smiles…
A lonely walk of miles

"...Was it everything you wanted to find
And did you miss me while you were looking for yourself out there ..."

An abrupt halt
A slow tug
And a quick turn back of time…

It probably was a dream, anyways

“And when it's over there's no peace of mind
Just a longing for the way things should have been”

You begin to say something
Right when I took in some air to start a conversation
A peal of laughter rings the air

{……
……}

“… so did you hear the song?”
You ask,…
And, all I can manage is a
Tried-to-look-confused-but-failing-miserably-look..

And with that glint of your eyes,
the dead punch, the straight face

My peace crashes on the floor or
wherever it falls

when it comes off from
the ride of milky way…
