I'm there somewhere

Alas its over. The most eventful year in my life till now. A lot happened. My first film as a music composer was released and by God's grace it's still doing very well. It was followed by my second film. Souls were released My Amma(grand'ma) who was suffering for a decade almost, passed way. My Appa (maternal grand'pa) who suffered a lot too passed away. The two gentle souls were relieved of the pain and suffering. My first album as a singer/songwriter was released this october.
My dog 'Mokai' passed away a few hours ago.
I do feel sad to lose my close ones but again it has made me realize some truths and made me look at death positively. I completed one year with the best person in my life. We went through a lot but am so proud to have her by my side always. This year made me realize true love will always exist. It's how we percieve it. This year has gaiven me moments that I'll always cherish as memories. It gave me confidence to stick on and never give up. It made me realize 'never is the time to say enough is enough'. It taught me that sorry is never the hardest word.
"All I can do is be me. Whoever that is"

It happened one night

there's a patch of grey on my blue sky
How i longed for the winter chills on grey afternoons...
time is out of mind
time didn't wanna move
time crouched round the corner, wicked
time stopped whispering
time was not on my side for that moment
time drew the path to the spiders nest
time cudn't strum
time was shocked at those questions
time felt sorry
time felt fragile
this time, it was not on my side
time was tampered with
time is hurt
time wept...
someone tampered with our blue confetti's
time is a lone thread still withstanding the lashings
time is you and me in our crazy reality
time can't forget the notebooks and promises
time come and take our pain away

If not for Boo!

If not for you,
Babe, I couldn't find the door,
Couldn't even see the floor,
I'd be sad and blue,
If not for you.

If not for you,
Babe, I'd lay awake all night,
Wait for the mornin' light
To shine in through,
But it would not be new,
If not for you.

If not for you
My sky would fall,
Rain would gather too.
Without your love I'd be nowhere at all,
Oh! What would I do
If not for you.

If not for you,
Winter would have no spring,
Couldn't hear the robin sing,
I just wouldn't have a clue,
Anyway it wouldn't ring true,
If not for you.
"There must be some way out of here," said the joker to the thief,
"There's too much confusion, I can't get no relief.
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth,
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth."

"No reason to get excited," the thief, he kindly spoke,
"There are many here among us who feel that life is but a joke.
But you and I, we've been through that, and this is not our fate,
So let us not talk falsely now, the hour is getting late."

All along the watchtower, princes kept the view
While all the women came and went, barefoot servants, too.

Outside in the distance a wildcat did growl,
Two riders were approaching, the wind began to howl.

For boo

when the night is not so cloudy
and the heart is quiet & dry
when the dreams begin to wake me
there's no time to say goodbye

when the distant whistle's heard
in the quiet of the railroad track
How I wish to board that train
How I wish to bring you back

when I saw my fingers bleed
I blamed it on the thorns
when I feel my soul is bleeding
there's no one to blame it on

some say love, it is a song
I sing every night, before I sleep
some say love, it is a stem
green & graceful with a new born leaf

some say love it is a warmth
that I've felt only once
I say love, it is a home
that you showed me in your arms.

It's one of those rare days when I am so happy. The person closest to me is running around with flying colours. So here I say....'Lets elope'!

For Boo

Some say love, it is a river
that drowns the tender reed
Some say love, it is a razer
that leaves your soul to blead

Some say love, it is a hunger
an endless aching need
I say love, it is a flower
and you it's only seed

It's the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance
It's the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance
It's the one who won't be taken
who cannot seem to give
and the soul afraid of dying
that never learns to live

When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed that with the sun's love
in the spring, becomes the rose

All that you touch
All that you see
All that you taste
All you feel.
All that you love
All that you hate
All you distrust
All you save.
All that you give
All that you deal
All that you buy,
beg, borrow or steal.
All you create
All you destroy
All that you do
All that you say.
All that you eat
And everyone you meet
All that you slight
And everyone you fight.
All that is now
All that is gone
All that's to come
and everything under the sun is in tune
but the sun is eclipsed by the moon.

"There is no dark side of the moon really. Matter of fact it's all dark."

Broken belches of sorry feelings
crimson memories, offhand guesses
I would hate to lose you
I thought I was there with you
Perhaps I'm the only one to be blamed
but one day you'll turn back and see...
...Life is a lost note of Miles
pumping through the gaslit alleys
where the dawn leaves dim memories of a dark night
sordid, turbulent, pale, orgiastic
where methodical faces move to and fro
we are another two lost souls
swimmin' in the middle of nowhere
If I knew the way I'd take you home.
No time to comprehend. The taxi floated steadily on the Gariahat Flyover. I was on my way home. My mind was distracted and diffused. Suddenly I was amidst a strain of thoughts. It's a like a dark august patch. The cell phone was not beeping. I had to attend an important meeting. The others were on their way for the meeting. So was I. Billboards with cosmetic faces passed by. The never looked so cold before. I kept wondering what went wrong. I lit a Pall Mall. Felt tired. The hot noon outside made me lazier. I closed my eyes and slouched back. And then it came. Like a sudden streak of lightning...'never is the time to say enough is enough'!

and it rained...

...and we watched the rain through the glass, savouring every bite of the hot fudge & black current. I looked in your eyes. We wanted to run out into the rain. I so wanted to get drenched. I so want to make your dream come true. 'Rain clouds in the sky, I don't know why, they may be blue, when I'm thinkin' of you...'
then we held hands and read funny cards and sat tight in the taxi on our way back. I long for those moments of togetherness, your warmth. I long to feel you close, caress your hairs, your ears...
'freedom is a word I seldom use, without thinkin', of the time, I love the best!'
everyday I love you deeper. with every little misunderstanding between us, the bond grows stronger. every time we kiss a star is born. every time I hear your voice I feel safe. every moment we spend together, I feel reassured that my life is beautiful.
