September black rain

Updated: Sep 15

A recall on halcyon days from yore alleys


As September drowns the gallons of salted rains,


It just seemed yesterday,

Handful words uttered


A communication -

" Will speak with you another day"


Never in lulls of deep had a nightmare,

Of you leaving me like an Autumn struck deep dried fallen leaf,

The Brooke of my life has paused in motion picture practical reels


Deep down there is a tsunami of ocean shattering pieces within me,


Unforgettable that ICU hospital days,

As you lay frozen in time like a piece of chunk the heartbeats hazy n monitor with blank straight lines of display


That day a thunderstorm had struck me,

Didn't know it was-


//The end // of together put saga that set itself free,

Won't you realise or see in those deep lit flames that you have not burnt alone,

But somewhere down those radiant pyres

that took a piece of me,


It's is said -

All good things come to an end

But why doesn't the feel of these grey metaphors feel end too,


Why do I see these lonesome blues?


And then day as chosen by destiny

Carrying your ashes

in holy hot spring bed,

Never imagined in my nightmares the feel of flesh to a day of ashes,

This jeopardy of hearts would bring,


Is my life done without you,

Your shifting to another realm

Maa…


All those memories of you drain my heartbeats,

And wish if there was a time machine a lasting opportunity for the same old repeats,


But (Ma)

Some emotions are meant to bleed


Can't your soul see-

The grave pit of sorrow my heart is coughing in vain trying to catch up with you on that eternal train


Sometimes a gusty feel hacks

cuckoo out of brains

Daring on these pains,

Am I just living in that past


The unforgettable day of -

"September Black Rain."

माँ तेरी याद…. माँ तेरी याद को मैं क्या समझू सुबा की वो पहली धूप याह शाम की वो चंचल हवा याह रात की वो चंदा मामा के कहानियां और किसो की टोली या तेरा आचल में बीठा उस वक्त वो बचपन के सुख भरी लोरी कभी तेर
