The Neverland!

This post has been published by me as a part of Blog-a-Ton 57; the fifty-seventh edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. In association with ​Madhu Vajpayee, the author of Seeking Redemption and Shades Publications, the publisher of Friendship- Bonds Beyond Time


“… but I could also write about love. How holding someone’s hand can silence a thousands voices and how someone’s smell can make you feel at home even though you’re a million miles away”


Resplendent thoughts, words more glorious
Than what they used to be
Looming in my reverie state
Alit from the borrowed light
Of the full bodied moon
Still shy to reveal its dark-side to the curious ones
The ambiguous souls,
yearning to learn the secret of hiding their own
You could always see me for what I am
Or was it right through me
As the ghost from an ephemeral plane
Undiscerning to the naked eye
Undaunted by this world
Blurring with every blink
The very night ,eager to vanish on me
Like the lover who would disappear
Once brought laughter that etched onto the walls
Where we broke our innocence,
Kissed until the color drained from your lips
Where our awkwardness became the things we loved
Our bodies, an adventure for the other
Every touch of your skin borne into deepest parts of mine
The night we held each others hands
We exchanged vows of eternity amongst us
The night we unyoked the dreams of the perfect life
Seemed to have been engulfed by something darker
With the advent of time, distance and our primal fears
Dreams of mulling over your name,
Ringing with the dulcet note in my ears
Seem to be drifting into a limbo to which I do not hold the key
Now the lucid nightmares have become my sweetest dreams
When it dawns, we would have been carried further away
Away from our crossroads
Your contempt and my respite helping us to drift apart
The life we wove together
Would be the horizons we can never reach
When it dawns, the lines on my palms would be erased
The memory of every touch withdrawn with it
An uncertain destiny whispering into my ears
Caressing me, to hold my hands that you once held,
I shut my eyes as I’m carried away
I want to wake up in the Neverland.
