Living Life through Someone Else's

A wide gaze,
Breathless chest -
She is absorbing
My stories
Bit by bit,
Transposing herself
In the stories
In my place

Substituting her
Life with mine,
Which I think
Is as ordinary
As it goes,
As normal
As possible:
Does she know this?


Is it love?
- The reason for
Her transposed
Existence; or
Is my life
Truly exceptional?
So any one
Would want it?

I admit though
I love it!
- Her desire
To be me…
But she should
Get her own
First-hand life –
Need I tell her this?

Evolution of a Thought

Electrical waves are dancing
To some music of revolutions
Which is revolving around a guitar
And its rhythm dancing 
Around a room that is half-lit 
By lights refracting through water

These only help to accentuate 
The confusion of an empty mind 
Which usually focusses 
On rebellious thoughts
And miseries and fantasies
The mind is searching for words
To put down on a paper

But now a love song 
Playing softly is preventing 
Philosophical thoughts from rushing in
Faces which may make emotions 
Move come up instead 
Such thoughts though 
Are promptly discarded

Gradually the ideas on 
Truth and untruth 
Conscious and unconscious
Flow into the mind
And fill the previous 
Empty spaces to satisfaction

An Excited Mind

Excited, nervous, stressed
Veins throbbing inside my head;
I lay my head on a pillow
But there are crowed images in my mind
Light and deep thoughts making noise
Jumping from ideas to ideas
From one vision to the next one;
Tiredness has set in though eyes won’t close
Then thoughts and ideas begin to speak
And I was speaking to them!
Is this beginning of insanity
Or the mind of an excited little girl?
May be its just me: an ageing
Immature woman – still not content,
Still searching; many ambitions
And looking for eternal peace;
But then, when peace comes to me
I will rest for an eternity
Now please let me keep on going!

I spread the pictures
Through them, I spread happiness 
Their happiness; but more
Than theirs, my own!

Its my way of giving
Back to the world that
Has given so much - in form of
Painting, sketching and photography!

Their smiles and gratitude
Their warmth and jokes –
Fills up my heart, satisfies my ego
Rejuvenates my mind and soul
