Crack in the Roof

 

Farthest corners have been held

for far too long now.

That roof is cracking

and there is so much snow.

Long held, water is dripping now

damping everything I know.

During sunlight of the summer

I barely feel the trouble

but now that I am cold,

the collapse seems inevitable.

But this is my home

and I shall go down with it, if need be.

Until then I’ll fix those cracks

which only the house owner can see.

In my mind I am not me

An unsettling unsure persona

Of self is conflicting today.

In my mind I am not me.

It is different what we both say.

Good thoughts are uttered badly

And skepticism is always high.

Simultaneous smiles are seen rarely

For one speaks truth and the other lies.

Lost is the bond now

Which is required to strike a balance.

Now it is all about how

I balance this imbalance.

 

An incomplete story

What remains are the ones which are incomplete.

Absence of closure keeps them at the back of our mind

where we invent our own little skit

and keep rewriting them in the hope to find

something which will just fit.

Soon we forget the previous story

because a new one starts to take shape.

Congratulations on creating another incomplete story

where one day we shall come back for an escape.

Imagine by John Lennon

This song is just too special. The first time I heard this song I was in tears. It has this ability to make you calm, make you feel at ease.

The one and only Imagine by The John Lennon

 

Share this song, listen to this song, it is just love.

 

Tales of woe

 

After months of hard work didn’t bear fruit, he seemed despondent.

She too had nothing absolute, life seemed dishonest

but somehow they ended up across the same table,

as they say unstable finds unstable.

 

One had everything and aspired for more,

the other had nothing and wanted just a little.

Tales of woe were exchanged

and both realised, Life is a pickle.

 

She saw a guy with success, still not giving up on betterment.

He saw a girl with nothing to start yet, not ready for a settlement.

But none spoke it out loud and shared a thankful smile.

They got what they needed, at least for a while.

Pirates of the Caribbean: He’s a Pirate

The first movie came out in 2003 and even since I head the famous Theme Song of Pirates of the Caribbean I was hooked.

Recently, I took some time and did my best to figure out the Tabs of this song.

Put on your headphones and listen away people!!

He’s a Pirate

I think I am ready for my Blog to showcase another side of me.

Hello everyone,

I know you all are used to reading Poems/Short Stories/Haikus/Travel Stories on my blog The Poet and the Pen. Thank you so much for all the love and feedbacks that you have been giving me over these many years. However…

Since this blog holds almost everything that I do, I would like to take it a step ahead now.

So the story is, I started playing the Guitar back in 2008 and had become quite good at it as I continued for 2 years straight but later due to moving out of my house for further studies, my love for guitar had to take a back seat and I kinda lost my touch over it.

But times have changed and I now feel that it is time to bring back the Guitar days into my life. I have been practising for some time now, trying to get a hold of it again.

Today for the first time, I am going to share a song whose chords I recently learnt.

The Play

 

One day they shall all be forgotten.

Who, What, When, Where will all become trivial.

Same stories will repeat themselves

for the new actors to reveal

and think of themselves as pivotal.

Old actors will watch from a distance

and critique as the new ones make mistakes,

But so did they…

Past comes back in a way.

Yet the audience will applaud

and throw roses for the same play

because that is their part

and to act is actor’s.

In the end it is all just a play.
