In my  kingdom of verses
Words are all jumbled up
One by one I rearrange them in order
Slowly they fall into place.
Tranquility flickers in darkness
Sombre silence waits alone
I tread through the dark alleys of my mind
Emotions lay scattered in large numbers.
Stars twinkle in the sky,
A beautiful tapestry of thoughts is woven around my solitude
My eyes crave for more,
I welcome you to become a part of my existence.
In my kingdom of verses nothing is constant
Flirtatious heart feels restless ,
Wanders through vales and meadows and forests so green,
Seasons come and go with a promise
My soul rises in your divine presence.

Words fail to fill up the blank spaces
Wearied night breathes on my shoulders,
Dreams float all around haphazardly in the dark room
My pillow gets soaked in tears.
I struggle in my conscious innocence to hold on to something
But like sand it slips through my solitude
Lone moon peeps through the curtains
I slowly get used to my quietude.
Words fail to fill up the blank spaces
Heart yearns for your smile,
Love that has no beginning,has no end
Like an endless ocean rises and falls with the tide.
Words fail to fill up the blank spaces
I go numb for a while,
My heart stumbles,
I remain awake in my sleep in your remembrance.

In that realm of timelessness nothing is yours nor mine
Like stubborn waves love falls, withdraws and falls again,
Slowly we get drowned in a divine frenzy
I lose my way in your arms.
The cosmic rhythm cripples all conspiracy,
In that realm of timelessness nothing remains yours nor mine
In your eyes I discover myself,
Mystic light pervades through darkness .
Absolute silence surrounds our presence
Souls meet each other smiling through our hearts,
Lips tremble over stumbling words,
Love breathes and everything comes to life like a dream,
All hurdles conquered in that realm of timelessness.
