Love is an Umbrella

‪Love is an umbrella ‬

‪It covers you‬

‪Both in the rainy days ‬

‪And during sunshine ‬

‪Though umbrella can be red‬

‪Love covering is pure‬

‪And though some umbrellas‬

‪Cannot withstand storms‬

‪Love is inherently storm-resistant‬

‪So when knocked down‬

‪Never destroyed‬

But rather, strengthens the foundation

‪Cause ‘we are built for this!’‬

What You See

If all you see is what you can see

Then you need a pair of glasses

Maybe not for your optics

But for your heart

Your eyes are naked

They only see what is physical

Your heart is protected

It can see what’s not visible

So don’t live by what you see

Live by your heart

After all, even the just shall live by faith.

My Lost Treasure

Like a lily, you grew up so quickly

Radiating the glory and splendor embedded within.

And like the grass, you withered away too quickly

That we couldn’t capture the true value of your personality.

.

Leaving an indelible vacuum in the field

A vacuum that only wishes can fill

But wishes are never horses

Else I would have been an ostler.

.

When I think of the visions and people you could have reached

Tears roll down my cheek

Yet like Solomon, when I consider the evil in the world

I congratulate and count you fortunate to have left early.

.

I call you my lost treasure

But since you’re not in ‘lost n found’

You’re better called my ‘Stolen Treasure’

As the freezing hand of death has stolen you from us.

.

Your desire to become a world trader was cut short by this aggressive monopolist

Your sun set before the dew of the dawn

And your midday dark as dusk felt like 9:11

Rest well beloved, I will see you at home when I finish the good fight!

You Bastard!

We are all here claiming and professing to be from the royal family because we know the King’s name or by adoption through the son’s blood.

Hopefully when the son comes shining like the stars he won’t call us bastard because we missed the way by following our ways.

May we not live like our ancestors who were exiled from the kingdom for their ill-doings. But rather be like our forefathers who were enshrined into the kingdom despite their wrongdoings. Amen!

TO MY COY LOVER

Over the years,

I tried expressing myself in my heart.

But my heart is only known by me.

I spoke with my mentor,

Mentor said I have to express it in language.

But I’m sure you will not understand my language.

I thought of showing you signs, But you’re not a Jew.

Contrained by my vocabulary prowess, I tried using English words.

But words cannot truly express my heart.
And words are only meaningful to those to whom understanding is given.

Even when I gather words to say it,

My meaningful words are meaningless to you because your heart is not connected with mine.

Wait! You understand my heart and you are making me go through this agony?

My dear love, but you know that

If I have eternity on earth, I will spend a million years playing scrabble or crossword.

But even the King get only a thousand years.

Hope you see eternity is calling
And we have to yield the Fruits.

I cannot say that I have fallen in love with you

Because loving you is not a temptation that I succumbed to.

If it was so, I probably would have risen again even the seventh time.

Loving you is an integral part of my life.
That’s why I only see myself growing in love for you.
Maybe the metamorphosis is yet to be completed.

There seems to be a million miles between my heart and your heart

But I hope that Love will bridge the gap before perfection.
