Moonless Night

Walking on the rain-soaked road, the steps felt long and heavy. It was just another day returning from work, but it was not usual. I never felt it coming. The temporary job I was working on came to an end, very early, before the date we had fixed upon. The long walk home seems draining my energy and my mind feels too numb. What next? I hear the questions coming from every known and the unknown person.
What next?
I look above, the stars blink down as the darkness descend.

Wind howling into the night sending shivers down the spine. Cold and eerie the damp room frightened him, as he walked around trying not to disturb the silence of the night.
A sob escaped from the huddled figure on the floor.
'Hey, are you alright? Get up', he lent his hand.
'He is no more..', she sobbed pointing to the man on the bed.

Leaves rustled near the window, whispering among themselves. While coldness of night crept the corners of the room.

The wet grass fresh with rain could've soothed her feet and mind, but not today, or rather not tonight. The dilemma tore her thoughts and fed her sanity. Every logic and every emotion gnawed her senses. One is her heartbeat and the other her breath. Losing one will result in death, yet the ultimatum was thrown at her face. Anger and Helpless, she screamed into the night, but no one heard her. Not even the moon.

The moonless night descending darkness over them, 
the stars twinkle 
but a dull affair.
Heavy with agony
Tired of thoughts
lonely they slept
on a moonless night

I never stood a chance...

This is selected as a WOW post

She : I never stood a chance, did I..?
He : It's not what you think..the chance of you cannot be equated to the chance of 'Us'..don't you think?
She : Chance of 'Us' can happen only if I am your choice..but the way you are talking now..
He : It's not that I don't have feelings for you..do you think it was all a farce..! You don't..don't you?
She : I am not questioning your feelings..I remember you speaking about our bond and saying that you don't want to name it.. and all this while I thought that you meant our bond to be nameless..our relationship to be beyond name..without conforming to the boundaries but something pure and free..but never in my dream I thought that you don't want to give it a name!!
He : Yes I didn't name because I wanted our relationship to take its own course, I didn't want to restrict it..
She : I understand..one can construct dam to a river but never to an ocean.. you are one such …

Rainbows and Tears

The sun blazing hot over head shined like there won't be any rain for few days but as the evening approached the rain poured dousing the scorched heat which was experienced just a few hours ago.
Samhita went about doing her share of chores cursing both the sun and rain, these were the two extreme ends of the spectrum and she despised the extremes as much as she can.

Today's rain mirrored her torrent of thoughts which overpowered her mind which struggled to rein them in! She had locked those memories for good or so she thought until they came to drown her in full flow!
Making her question about her strength, will, whatever you call.. But isn't it just one side effect of feelings that explode the sanity of mind until one surrenders to their object of affection? yeah just one side effect of many such!
Feelings are powerful enough is crush the logic and brittle enough to break causing pain again, it's a chain reaction she thought, wiping the mirror clean, staring at her own ey…

Love - Poem

Hey! Just another attempt in writing poem, please bear with me Since childhood I am fascinated by the concept of reincarnation, I don't know if it's real or just an imagination, but it does fuel my mind with vivid fantasies and thoughts.
Happy reading :)
