Drenched were I,

when it rained ,

showering tear drops,

lost in the actuality of unagitated self,

melodies of gentle wind,

eyes washed,

cleared of all the dust ,

that gathers on soul and body,

Oh! let me cleanse  my mind

and relieve my perplexed soul,

from starry nights,

and sparkling streams,

scattered its beam,

reacheth not me,

nestled …

The lyrics of a mysterious ballad,

The tunes of a purple evening,

The rhythm of a sun biding farewell,

Of repeating errors,

And lost causes,

Belongings.

misplaced and shattered,

aimlessly wandering,

lost the key,

to your soul,

destined to return,

all your belongings,

a quarter bottle of shame,

pinch of regrets,

spoon full of disgust,

three-fourth cup lost hope,

half pint faded …
