Fog : The Good Evil

It paints the surroundings, in mercurial white
The path appears, as if leading to heaven
You see on your left, or you peep towards right
You'll see nothing, but a sheet milk laden

Imparting the atmosphere, an air unearthly
This densely cloud, is such a treat to walk through
Especially in freezing, mornings those early
It's celestial effect one will, decipher to be of brew

Trees take the form of, looming monsters
Small stumpy shrubs, appear objects of awe
The smell smoky damp, that mist fosters
Mingles with the piney, fragrance of straw

Beautitude apart, it's a heartless impostor
An impairer of vision, wherever it thrives
Every fifteenth vehicle, turns roller and coster
Thereby it claims about, thousands of lives

Comes down heavily, on traffic of all kinds
Flights getting delayed while trains running late
Workaholics to home, forcibly it binds
Difficult telling how long, one may have to wait...

Ode to an Obsession

Since one August evening, my eyes when saw you
They've been craving, for more and more 
Your form mesmerizing, dazed them with a view
Insane they echoed, encore encore..!

When that alluring face, with tinge that golden
Inkling in charm inherent, formed a smiling bloom
I remember it how I, through days those olden
Wondered at its potence, at how much did it loom

You've been since then, for me a thrilling drug
The more I resist you, the more I need you
I submit my being, with a surrendering shrug
To my ruthless desire, to entreat you

Entreat you to bless me, with thy soothing flashes
So that these eyes weary, get embalmed with relief
Or let world this see me, burning down to ashes
Like I now burn in, smouldering embers of grief

I pray this immense yearning, someday meets its end
The pain it has dispensed, has been excruciating
My soul is now too tired, enduring this wobbly trend
I'd never wished to go on, just waiting and waiting...
