Being Mature

On that bus
where I am riding
beneath my veil of sparkling glee
grief is hiding.
With all coercion
I had to choke my emotions.
Hearing that loud cry,
to my heart ,begged I
not to let pour
the sentiments of yours.

That infant is so free
she could let the world see
her wail,wrath and laughter.
She is her own master.

Trying to divert my mind
as I looked out of the window,
amidst the black clouds I find,
the caged tears of my eyes
are eloping from the black skies.

Unbounded by any chains,
the nature is showering rains.
That infant is too showcasing her pains.
To their freedom I am envious.
But to the world
my agonies' seizure
is the only definition of
"Being Mature".

A tale of two stones

Amidst this darkness
in this wilderness
when even a fireflie's sight
could bring in your life
a little light,
you were in search 
of even the minutest of light
such was your plight!

All the agonies and
sorrows had made you a stone.
I being dejected and forlorn
had too  become a stone.

The strong wind brought
us together.
Destined to meet
I thought we are
bonded forever.

Did you sensed those sparks
when I touched you?
I know they were few
but don't know
why this time I felt so new.

Soon those cruel rains
in my life
entered like a bane.
I tried to rub with you
again and again.
But all was in vain.
Never again that spark was ignited.
The fire could never be lighted.

The relationship couldn't be mended.
The miseries haven't ended.
Tossed in a different direction was I
by that passerby.
I had to part from you
without even saying a "bye".
