Behind The Face

Poem By ARSHAJ GAIKWAD

Like oceans hide within them,
These creatures can surface.
Like the MOON soothens us down,
And heat leaves without a trace.
Biding time they wait silently,
Before their time of race.
These mysteries smile so slyly,
Hidden behind a face.

Each coin has but two faces,
Though one at once we see.
They are meant to be together,
Yet.... so seperately.
In light as one half glows,
In darkness, the other be.
And seldom, we discover,
A face of reality.

It brings joy to many,
But can bring sorrow today,
A face that carries a smile
Always brings smiles along the way.
A laughter that is contageous,
That spreads from face to face,
The deapest sorrows are locked beneath,
And here they shall stay.

But no! We can't divide,
One face from the other face,
The weak lets the dark side dominate,
And so they loose their grace.
But never ever surrender,
Lets battle from the base.
Its only you who can decide,
THE FACE YOU WANT TO FACE...!

...Tears...

They might tell us everything,
Or they tell us nothing at all,
Many things forgotten,
Amongst many of other thoughts.

Shadow Of The Day....

Sometimes I think,
Why do we wait in hope of a good day?
Sometimes, when the Sun’s up,
Why don’t we come in the open and play.

Nights Of The Rising Sun

No star is shining bright enough,
To bring me light this night.
No Sun can rise before the dawn,
And take away my fright.

The Other Day

So much to say,
I had to the other day,
But now here a memory stands,
Just whistling on another way.

Demon Hole

As it slashes around,
Its very crimson blade,
And now your time’s over, it says,
As merry as the church bells rings,

A Long Kiss Goodnight

Standing on the heights,
Reaching out for stars
Those are now shining bright,
Just like my love in this light.
