Feeling You Around

Painted by Seema Pillay

“The reason it hurts so much to separate is because our souls are connected.”

Nicholas Spark

I can still feel your sillage in the air, i still long for the times we spent in the woods

You were a magical trouville in my life, how i wish i could steal you for good

Your sparkling eyes, your enticing smile is all i wanted in those times.

When I pass by you every day now, it hurts to know you will never be mine

I love you more than words can say, I love you more than my songs can play

I love you more each passing day, all I wished was that you could stay

Oh sunshine of my Life, the sea of my love, the line of my fate, the beat of my heart

When you dance on my chest, the thoughts that surge, melt me away and take the form of art


Nothing more than an infatuation (2)

Feel the beauty of this poem and here comes nostalgia…

Self-Love and Self-Deprecation

We pass each other
In the fields
Stealing gazes away

We pretend and we hide
Our feelings in the air
From the clearing to the clouds

We see each other
Yet pretend to unsee
We greet each other
Yet unwilling to meet
At the end of the day
And the beginning of the night

Your smile reaches your eyes
And then meet mine
Nods of the heads
Shaking of the knees

Here we are
At the beginning of the end
Or the end of the beginning

Poetry featured in Indian Periodical – One Sided Love

All my lovely readers – I am glad to announce my poetry was published in Indian periodical today.

I always have been wanting to talk about one sided love and express how it feels to be in that situation. All of us have been there, done that at some point in our life. Time flies and we move on but memories stay back. Sometimes good sometimes painful. So do share how YOU feel about this topic.

Happy reading!

A dance in the rain

Painted by Seema Pillay


When you take me in your arms, i forget all my pain

Beautiful are such times that i can’t ever complain

How much it means when you look into my eyes

I dance with you like i would have danced in the rain

I would love to get lost in your eyes time and again

I am tied to you like the locket in a chain

What binds us together is something hard to explain.

I dance with you like i would have danced in the rain

Depression – 2

Painted by Seema Pillay


“Sleep isn’t just a sleep anymore, it’s an escape”

Teary eyes with Muffled cries

Strength lost and Hope dies

Cloudy skies bring gloomy nights

Meaningless love and painful fights

Lifeless body in its bereft soul

Confused mind with aimless goals

Choked heartbeats in a broken heart

Gasping for breath as truth unfolds

Raging fumes of Burnt wishes

Drift in air in direction unknown

No one to wipe the rolling tears

While wounded lies the soul alone

A Father’s Fears

I feel this in every way described. Do you?

random rants ruminations ramblings

Today, I am afraid of sending my child to school
Not knowing what she will learn
From books that oft teach false gospels
From teachers who know no better

Today, I am afraid of taking her to a place of worship
Not knowing whom she will bow to
The all-conquering neon-clad god of rampant consumerism

The Memory Lane…

Painted by Seema Pillay


“I wish we could choose which memories to remember and which to forget”

Deep inside my heart I was waiting for this day

I brood as I try to cover the most painful crack, as I lay

It’s an illusion if you thought I would stay

You can’t hurt me anymore, just like the Moonglade

Ethereal Memories of this Ephemeral love falling apart

Ripples of those memories emerge when I wear that pink floral skirt

You never bothered to keep them fresh or repaint for me

Some did not even last for one short second as they vanished in the air

I become my own harbinger, my own Panacea, only to make myself free

I carry myself away from the shore, as no more I can bear

The distance keeps growing like an offing

Your fragrance gradually fading away from my long knitted velvet gown

As I walk away, from you, your paths, your life, I hear myself talking

I wow to never come back, I won’t let myself down

As the pleasant zephyr passes along

A crestfallen heart conflates with a care-free sunshine to take charge of life again !

Shades of Emotions

Everyone misses their kids when they are away from them. I wrote this when my daughter went on vacation to India for 3 long months. I wrote this to tell her that not just this life, it’s every life I want her to be mine! I hope she reads it some day (before I die)

Miles to go Before I sleep

Thoughts have no limits

“The moment we cry in a film is not when things are sad but when they turn out to be more beautiful than we expected them to be.”
― Alain de Botton
You are the one who colored my world, as I made this turn and entered your life,
You are the one who gives life to my breath, while I try to make this life worthwhile.
When you’ll be far I’ll hear you close, when you’ll be close I’ll hear you within,
When I’ll be far you’ll feel me close, when you close your eyes, a dream will begin.
The sun will shine, the stars will blink, the moon will stare as you come in my arms,
The arms will drop to hug you tight, here comes my lucky charm…
When I taste your kiss and tell you…
