I've Seen, Aware

and I've seen
I've seen
this big world
how it turns and turns
and swirls
snatching hearts
blinding eyes
in the summers
come the rouges
faking emotions
they danced
and for days they danced
from lesser beginnings
they pranced
on the faithfuls

across the seas
giant waves
ravaged lands
we waited
and we waited for nothing
as the clouds disappear
rays of light appear
captured in evening glasses
of the young at heart
as they walk the parks
stealing a few looks
at the defiant girls
the most beautiful they are
illusions grandeur
for the hearts sees
what the eyes don’t
what beauty
we see what beauty
from this life feisty

leaves of lost trees
in those gardens
so often our mind frees
from the clutches
of unfair dreams
as they shatter
under the pressure
of the world
twirl and swirl
and waves and clouds
no different to your color
as we wear the same skin
and spill the same blood
we are not aware
are we
we are not aware

[#] I think I'm back to my old weird self. Tell me if this really read as bad as it was to me...I have an excuse though! Wrote this in 7 minutes (it took me to download a 1.5 mb file from a really bad internet connection!!!). disclaimer: need to get some facts straight here... 7 mins to write... not counting formatting, and spell check in blogger. i figured i must write a word every 3 seconds to get this poem out in 7 mins...but it was a raw draft...before the formating, word change, and etc... :-)

[#] Will we ever contemplate suicide over a dead Internet connection?

LOl @ Sourish's comment !

He should've said 'folklore' instead.....hehe...

And for ppl like me who can say that they know you quite a bit, I wont say its weird...knowing your weird self...

The larger than life picture of the real deal that we hafta witness is overlooked by our not so meticulous eyes, in the drive ans lookout for utopia. Perhaps we never will...I dunno...

How are you bhai. Miss you. You dont ol these days I guess...eh ?

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
