I Was Your Destiny

Folder: 
Satish Verma

Nature calls agenda.
It pulls my heartstrings walking in
moonless night to find fireflies.

Hiding in a beehive,the
annual rings cut your years ikn pain
Echoes were waiting in hope.

The sap refuses to rise.
Brown marks on your face are
becoming darker. I Will cross you in water.

Want

Folder: 
New Lyrics

Laying next to you

I just want to stare into you

Into your beautiful soul

Forever

 

Staying close to you

I just want to stay inside you

Yeah, until we become one

Endeavor

 

-I know what you want

You're all that I want

I've got all I want in you

You know what I want

I'm all that you want

You've got all you want, it's true-(chorus)

 

Coming up for air

I just want to breathe into you

And then I'll go back for more

Surrender

 

Reaching out for you

I just want to grab onto you

And I'm never letting go

So tender

 

I know what you want

You're all that I want

I've got all I want in you

You know what I want

I'm all that you want

You've got all you want, it's true

 

Rolling in the sheets, I'm lost inside of you

When I start to dream, I just envision you

 

I know what you want

You know what I want...

I know what you want

You're all that I want

I've got all I want in you

You know what I want

I'm all that you want 

You've got all you want, it's true

A hand full of air

Something stirring 

A cautious hover 

Over a breaking smile 

gratitude spills 

tumbling over the reverently held ether 

life lives here, moistened with 

Blood, sweat, Tears and rain 

Every fall a rise 

Like the breath of providence 

A dip left 

A twist right 

the rhythm of life inspires dance,

Poetry, art, music and song  

Like air slipping over chords

Sacred Verbage 

Vibration 

Your hands are never empty 

There is no void, 

There is only the appearance of nothing 

Which by the mere thought is even something 

So grab on tight!

Even when it seems there is no thing

it really is something, isn't it? 

Oh what we see, be and do when nothing is impossible! 

 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

Yes, yes you can!

My Baby Steps

Folder: 
Satish Verma

It was a dry run to die.
Inequality between sun and moon
always inspires to save the earth.

My love was beyond the
pain of stones submerged in the
salt lake. Nightmares visit the eyes at night.

In well defined ripped
loyalty, a black star says, I am-
the cry of fallen truth of the conscious.

Retrospective Recollection

Folder: 
New Lyrics

I miss the way you told me

I would never live up to anything 

I miss the way you'd scold me

For whenever my dreams began breathing

I miss the screaming in my ears/ I miss the shouting in my face

And all the painful years/ and all the dreadful days

Of living life in fear/ of living through the hate

 

I miss those days (chorus)

 

I miss the way you held me

Squeezing my chest just a little too tight

Oh, how you would expel me

Pulling me down before I got too high

I miss the screaming in my ears/ I miss the shouting in my face

And all the painful years/ and all the dreadful days

Of living life in fear/ of living through the hate

 

I miss those days

 

I miss the stupid games we used to play

It's funny how time separates us so far away

I wish it could go back the way things used to be

But it won't last a day

 

I miss those days

The Cobwebs

Folder: 
Satish Verma

An abandoned smile on
your face was inviting a hurricane.
What was the logic in the air?

Something was wrong in
earth's rotation. Words are the same
The letters are not changing the place.

Anxiety wears the sparks.
Between you and I the pause was
making space. Poems are searching new home.

December

Folder: 
New Lyrics

-Remember

It's December

It's the happiest time of the year

It's December

But in this frozen heart there's no cheer- (chorus)

 

Let it snow til I'm covered from head to toe

Let the sun go down before I can get home

Just remember it's December 

 

Let the leaves turn brown as they rot on the ground

Let the night black out everything that's around

Just remember it's December 

 

Remember 

It's December 

It's the happiest time of the year

Its December 

But in this frozen heart there's no cheer

 

It's so cold

Why do I feel so alone?

 

That's when I

Remember 

It's December 

It's the happiest time of the year

It's December 

Cause in this frozen heart there's no cheer

In this frozen heart there's no cheer

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I kinda got my inspiration from a Christmas song I had stuck in my head, and the words just flowed out, so now I have a "winter" or "Christmas song" under my belt. 

See if you can guess what song it was...

Unflappable

Folder: 
Satish Verma

Unflinching I was
going to ask "Are you going to
break the bread with me?"

It was me. Contagious.
You were impaled. Making history
in this fractured era.

Bidding farewell to me,
money was polishing the pitch,
Only fire was generating the ash.

So Many Ways to Die

Folder: 
New Lyrics

There are so many ways to die

 

Maybe it will be on a hot sunny day

Maybe it will be when I'm weathered and grey

Maybe it will be from a car accident 

That I didn't see coming from a mile away

 

Or maybe it will come for me in my sleep

Maybe it will leave me lost in a dream

Maybe it will be from sickness and disease 

That will take me down, bring me to my knees

 

And I may never know just how it all goes down

 

It's like a bullet to the head/ A knife right through the chest

There are just so many ways to die

It's like a noose around your neck/ A fatal heart attack 

There are just so many ways to die

So many ways to die

 

Maybe it will happen in the freezing night 

Maybe it will derive from a homicide 

Maybe there won't be any signs of a fight

And it will go down by way of suicide 

 

And I may never know just how it all plays out

 

It's like a bullet to the head/ A knife right through the chest

There are just so many ways to die

It's like a noose around your neck/ A fatal heart attack

There are just so many ways to die

So many ways to die 

 

And no one really knows how their story fades out

 

It's like a bullet to the head/ A knife right through the chest 

There are just so many ways to die 

It's like a noose around your neck/ A fatal heart attack 

There are just so many ways to die 

So many ways to die
