Between all the ifs and buts
A single line persists with a single dot
The pause with punctuation mark
As if every thought centred for one spot
But- act as if nothing will hinder without
The essence and fragrance of budding rose
If  says may be one day
But says never will come that day
In between the two contradictions
A jumbled of emotion
Play their role
Mood swings
From hopeful slot to negative gap
Diverting attention to pretend  for a nap
Dreams come, but not soothing
Frightens  with thought provoking
In the moment of cheers
Bleeding heart rejoices with tears
As it reels with feelings
Which dwindles with lots of ifs and buts.


In the dim hours of the day
Your sunny entry
Brought the shine
Filled my kingdom
With smile and rhyme
Blushing my earth
With the fragrance of wine
I became intoxicated
Flattered  with your lovely essence
Doused to your  amiable presence
My petals bloomed  to  radiance
Each curve of mine danced
in the melody  of your quintessence
Unconsciously the passionate
tidal waves of my heart started chanting your name
Slowly and slowly ,the sun of sensitiveness
Redden with your flame.
After reaching  the peak of eagerness
Suddenly I became protective and possessive
regarding   your performance.


Why I wait?
Day and night for your knock,
Because ,
As soon as you enter,
My face lit up,
Lips spreads a smile,
Cheeks blush for a while,
My heart beatings race with the strings of clock,
Pain I bore till now evaporates,
I  want you to remain by my side,
I want to share my thousand unspoken words to you,
That I rehearse  ,for hours just for you,
I want to count stars with you,
Because I was waiting   for you,
You usual ,
Unaware of my pangs ,
Didn’t notice my quivering  lips,
Didn’t bother to see my brighten face,
Didn’t  utter a word of love,
That I was waiting to hear so long,
But you know..
My pulse  were uncontrollable  with your fiery breeze,
My heart rates danced with the ragas of classical beats,
I want you to hold for a moment,
To show you,
How I feel ,
How much you captured my dream,
How  you snatched my sleep,
U came and went away like the flashing beam,
Keeping me waiting,
Only for you.
