Just Penned!! – I’m a Running Verse

I’m a running verse 

That flows beyond the periods

Pulling the thoughts along

Flowing towards the infinity
Whenever sanity suggests a stop

The soul spout starts pouring

The wine brewed within

Starts frantically flowing
As I flow beyond the periods

I rub the ages along

I’m a lovely song of time

That chimes the eternity gong
I flow through the hearts

Through the sulky spots

I wave with the waters

Float with heavenly matters
I long not for the horizon

I flip the skies flowing

I have no poles to follow

I just keep flowing
As a song perennial

I flow towards the truth

Taking the souls I touch

To take abode in truth
Though I’m a song

Just read me not

Flow along with me

Catch my sense hot

Just Penned!! – ​The grapple with the shopping app

I downloaded a cup of venom

Available at just a tap

A free of cost app

That tied me without a clasp
I see a wicked gnaw

I’m scratched by a filthy claw

The lure is the mart

That tries nabbing me to the cart
The checkout is blinking

The offer tags are kinky

Driving me almost nuts

To buy the useless with utmost guts
The heart that shrinks at the needy

Throbbed like a lustful dog

The device that had the holy book

Kept me off the tempting fog
For everytime I close the app

Without at least buying a cap

The consumer fever snatched my nap

And I feel poor and feel a gap
It makes me forget His mercy

It makes me complaining and longing

At the stroke of a weak moment

It makes me jealous and burning
The mysterious big data blow

Makes it hard to stand an online shop

No blissful greetings

No surprise meetings
It kindles all the greed and pride

And takes me for a frenzy ride
With all might and prayer

I’ve once again closed buying nothing

O Lord, I thank Thee

For Thee kept me from selling me
I wish to burn my wishlist

I swear, wouldn’t add anything to the cart

I wish looking out for the needy

And help those in despair
Thank you online shop

I’ve bought my senses back

Stop your stealthy prying

And stop your filthy trying

Just Penned!! – Humanity – The new UFO


The World is equipped with newer tools
Whose prototypes the ages have praised
The flints that gave the first sparks for light
Now cry for having taught exploding

The threat of alien invasion
Unveils the truth of their non-existence
The dread of human wickedness
Is uglier than the alien invasion

Humanity is the new UFO
The “unidentified feature often”
The hell is taking its perfect shape
In the bosoms of hatred rotten

Release all the stinking gasses
Kill all the tenderly masses
Leave not the breeze that passes
Leave not the bit of carcasses

O, zombies
Resurrect to your human form
Believe! Humanity is still the life’s norm
Nudge all the muzzles of weaponry
Budging to love shouldn’t be secondary

Plant more love than the mines
Breath love into the trench in the ravines
Expel the hatred imposed
Impel the love deposed

The dream of conquests
Only end in making graveyards
Not empires!!

Light is an elixir that never grows old nor perishes

Light expells darkness and death

Light bears no pride of its presence

Light is selfless in giving

Light has nothing to do with darkness

Light loses to itself than to anything else

Light is contented till it lives

Light lives by its own spark

Light never dies, only escapes out of view

Light never leaves darkness behind

It is the people who stay behind

Just Penned!! – The Super Heavy Conscience

It’s hard to bear
It’s hard to bear
It’s hard to bear
To bear the sinful soul

The drop of light He breathed in me
Has consumed too much of the dark
In the pursuit of purging all the goo
The heart’s tired without fresh blood

I’m now, the mud and water’s curse
That wouldn’t take me back
I’ve grown thorns along
Along the tender drop of soul

The sin of tarnishing and damning the soul
Had never pricked me so bad
Now, I repent my very existence
And my future fall

The lips that smacked
And savoured the sin
Now tastes it bitter and sour
The eyes that relished the filthy core
Have no tears to pour no more

Lowers to the fire, the heavy soul
Pulls the Super Heavy Conscience
There would be no better hell
Than the conscience
There would be no better hell

Just Penned!! – Swine Flu

It is not the virus
It is now the people
It is not the flu
But characters with no clue

None have the spine
To slander wrong and slain
Bent like the swine
We relish the gutter wine

We lock the apps
To save our character
Deceive daily
Yet expect honesty

Left all alone
We peek into the filthy
In broad day light
We buy us a clean chit

We gaze at the curves of girls
Forgetful of people home
Yet shake hands with smile
With a genuine voice and tone

We never get fatigued
Not the chill of sin
Or the fever of fear

No device exists
To measure the decay
No gender persists
On changing to be good

It’s all the game of chance
Hearts gnaw for the time to pounce
Lust flu has so taken us
We see lumps of flesh
Than the kith and kin

To become human is an emergency
To stop the flu and its insurgency
We can’t join hands to fight
But to fall on knees and pray

​I was a picturesque piece of chaos

Yet had no shape of future

Moments gazed at me in awe

To learn how to waste time
I was a splendid piece of no worth

Until a worthless love bloomed in me

It was a sweetie that had no face

With whom I felt all love’s glee
Thirsty for something

And to figure out what

My pen and paper met

Poured then rigorous thought
At first I scrapped some verses

Then a ream of paper lot

Then I threw my stupid love

And was cursed by cupid hot
Slowly and pretty slowly

Mecry freed me from the knot

Now only with writing Him

I find the very soul’s sweet spot
Life has ripped me skin and bone

Only to give me wings of hope

Etched till the last lump of fat

I now stay all afloat
Light, so light than the lighter light

With might of a burning torch

So wise a flame have I got

Sun couldn’t stand the scorch
Don’t take me for a egoed goose

I sing in all merry

Just read and tip it off

I’m on His love ferry
I go singing let me go

I go singing let me go

I go singing let me go

I love being in His lap

Singing till all time fall lapsed

Just Penned!! – In The Craters of The soul

In the craters of the soul
The darkness is intact
With the tact of darkness intact
The asteroids of steroids
Hit the soul particle

The floating expanding truth
Fails embracing the soul particle
The soul particle is ignorant
To lose its minimal being
To be the expanding truth

The crater’s darkness threatens
That the eyes of soul should face truth’s glare
The belittled soul makes couch of the ego snare
Wearing the deceiving sleep
The soul particle dissolves into darkness

In fact, the crater’s mouth is smaller
Smaller than the soul particle
It is with the lust for darkness
The souls slips from truth, light and its glare
Into the deep, deep, deep of the crater
So deep, till it settles away
Away from the expanding truth

Just Penned!! At The Meniscus of The Heart

From puddle to pond to brook to oceans

I’ve set off from the distant shores

But, my gills are yet to breathe in bubbles

Yet it yearns for the song of the pebbles
The chillness of fear is intact in the bones

My spine has dubbed into an eel

I wished I swam like a whale

Yet, dream of settling in an aquarium stale
I love the ocean currents

And the miraculous blue waters

Yet the heart falls for the pond Lilly

Staring at the puddle’s walls
The oceans will hate my heart’s waves

But I love the calm and qualms of the sea storm

As I enjoy the inner weather in me

The sun is freezing at the dawn
My feet long for the tenderness of the lawn

Heart throbs to swim

Mind broods of breeding wings

As I stretch my palm for a reading
I’m a maze within and without

Amazed of the spiritual waters

I know I’m dry and thirsty

Yet fear swimming through the deep of the matters
I’m scared to take a gulp of truth

But poised to savour venom for lifetime

I put my head out of the waters

To breathe the stink of the past
The ocean is calm…

Staring at the waves of the heart

I guess, sinking would be better than swimming

Just Penned!! – Quench Till The Soul


Twilight is not a deception
Look, it suggests a horizon!
Being mortal is to kindle the love
To fade into the eternal horizon!

Light spreads in no time
Be the light, kill time!
Flow beyond the confines
The confines of the flesh

Flow into the ravines of love
Reach to the eternal springs
Drink to put off the burning heart
No haste, quench till the soul!

Etch thy self!
Be light!
Float, float, float like the horizon!
Twilight only slips from the sight
The light fills the thirsty eyes in the lee!
