Gathered under the crescent moon,
Waiting for her to come back soon,
A withering look scratching traces.
Flickering candles light their faces.

Music keeps the jungle humming,
Broken tides keep on coming
Cries a woman under the hood
Time never cared or understood.

The stories are woven from molten gold,
As fortunes made and dream are sold
Yet the magic lies sparsely strewn

Find the path or fade away soon.

Gyanban Thoughts :  just a few lines about a female gypsy and her wandering mind and the longing soul.The journey she travels and the life she marvels ,the rocks she stumbles and the feelings that crumble....

Watch the flaming sun
Burn the road
Eyes left in lurch
Miles go by in search

At the station
Crowded raindrops
Leaving static trains
Watching moving people

Minutes clock moments lost
Watches non stop
Blink of an eternity
Waiting for you....

Gyanban Thoughts : Listening to Misha Safi's magical rendition  -Chori Chori  - scribbled a few lines. Waiting and longing for your beloved induces intense emotions when every one  and every thing else around you is talking...but your re not listening ...you re just waiting...

Love Lock

Dr.Walter closed his chambers early and searched every shop to find the perfect gift.

His wife of twenty three years needed nothing more.

But ,he was relentless, till he got what he was looking for.

He reached home,walked down to the basement & said : “My love, I’ve got the new wax for you” looking at her corpse.

Gyanban Thoughts : A 55 word micro fiction after a long time. Getting the title right was an interesting exercise.

I'd walk with you to the gallows
in sunshine or rain,
If you could exchange your sorrows
for love and rid pain.

I'd walk with you to the cliff

braving storms and waves,
If you could exchange your past
and rewrite it again.

I'd walk with you through fire,

or on burning coal and nails
If you could exchange your scars
and paint your life again.

I'd walk with you to die,

just to add one more moment,
If you could exchange your death,
and live once again....

Gyanban Thoughts : This new year,I start by dedicating a few lines to those departed,those broken hearts and endless tears of lost lives and relentless pain.If we could just turn back time once and save so many lives....#Peshawar,#Malysia airlines,Air Asia,Terror attacks and many more.... 

Fade away

and then, just like that, one day we will fade away, aging books on empty shelves, receding memories of ourselves, sail away l...
