I don’t know how many of you ever read my poem “Song Of The Dying Nightingale” my favorite poem from the book “Age Of Survival”  Thatpoem took about 10 years for me to figure out and write. There isreality, dream and pure fiction in it. You all may be thinking why am Isaying this. To really understand the following poem one need to scrolldown and find the recital of “Song Of The Dying Nightingale” at theleft hand side of this site. Listen to it. Then read this poem. I wrotethis poem as an aftermath to that poem.

  Lastnight I was sitting in my room and it started raining, the rain dropshitting hard on the window glass. Then I remembered when I was astudent in Mysore, India, it is one of the mornings when it was rainingbadly I first heard the sound of that bird. I learned to speak andwrite English language to express what I felt. Now I am writing againabout that same bird. This time there is nothing real, just a feelingfrom a memory and rest is fiction.

 

Enjoy my friends, countrymen and of course…. My Darling. You all have the best of all weekends.

 

Blessing Of A Nightingale.

 

Darker everything they made,

Darker everything looked,

When upon the windows the cold drops shattered,

For a moment mind in the chill swayed.

 

Only the drizzle and my breathe broke the silence,

And drags of air in the autumn cold in my chest filled,

The phantoms of a dreamy past my only companions,

When breath grow longer, in the dream they joined,

Hand in hand for a wild old dance.

 

A cold wave from the glass window caressed my face,

And every bit of a beautiful dream erased,

When consciousness to my material being stormed,

Ah’ I said as the feeling in my mind still remained.

 

Then through the window I saw,

Sitting on the wide edge of the window,

A bird all wet, in the cold, shivering,

Without making a move to the eyes of bird I looked,

As the bird deep into my eyes looked as if in compassion,

Oh’ then the dream I remembered,

When in my younger days every morning I heard,

The sad tune of a bird in sadness sung and with sadness I listened,

And me holding the featherless corpse of that sad singer,

Pledging “I will rather live as a broken hearted,

Than break any lovers heart” I remember my own hand trembling,

Holding the corpse of that bird in sadness,

Whom never ever in all prettiness I have seen.

 

From my thought I got out still looking at the bird,

Looking at me the bird to the side took off,

And through the cold, windy rain flown far, far away.

Happy Wednesday everyone…. What’s up? I write this upon adark screen with green letters, mmm that’s a lie. You all read it upon a darkscreen in green letters. The first computer screen I have seen had this colorcombination. So I keep my Xanga like this. I can keep on talking about my Xangahistory. But it will only lead me to hate myself for my mishaps. Now this dayis a pleasant day. Some Wednesdays are like this they will makes you say “GREATGREAT GREAT, LIFE IS CLAAAASSSY” I love those days and at the end of those daysI write these kinda poems.

Thispoem is written out of truth. Pure and crystal clear truth. I lovespeaking truth and it pinches my heart when I have to lie. So this poemis written because someone told me the truth. The one truth Ialways wanted to hear. Please read the poem to know what truth I amtalking about.

A Prayer Called ‘Love’.


Life as if in a swing, up and down swings,
Every day one goes up and at night comes down,
The masquerade hiding the true self,
Wonderfully done all through days,
Still some frustration haunts mind that thrived,
In ambition, hypocrisy and deception of oneself.

What are the aims of the righteous mind?
I know not and don’t want to know more,
What is right and wrong, good or bad,
Pretty or ugly, Ah I don’t want know,
As everything when peeled away the outer layers,
In flesh and blood mocked mind and soul.

May be the closeness of heart and soul with many,
Punctures the feelings for each other disastrously,
And lost I many feeling upon my unshaven face,
But far away a soul knowing all misdeeds,
Still said, “I accept you as you are”
Oh’ wonderful I felt and all hypocrisy left,
I can’t deceive my soul anymore and all frustration melted,
Reality may still keep us apart,
But the tranquility of a dream in my soul I feel.

After bowing before God in thankfulness,
When raised my hands for a prayer for that soul,
My own soul in soliloquy said,
“Love needs no prayers, love itself is a prayer,
In the prayer of that soul, eternally you will live”.
Once more I bowed before God and away I walked,
With a heart with happiness filled.

Hello, Fellow, Xangans,

  Sounds good…. Haha…well… what can I say… once in a while I need to break the silence. I am theworst kinda attention freaks around. But what to say, these days I just rollaround the corner, in some deep thoughts. What about a poem mmm nope… not today.How to reduce my every growing belly? Who is the unfortunate girl whom I amgoing to marry? These are the things that bothers me now. Hehehe. You all maythink that fasting got into my head… yeah a bit. My brain is half fried. Haven’tseen a mad Tuesday like this in recent time.

  Hope everyone elseis fine…. There are people who are sick because of the climate change….get wellsoon, get well soon, as the world need more of you all than the poetry of aLonely man.

Have a great evening my Xangans… May truth bless you allwith fulfillment of all your unfulfilled wishes.

Witnesses.

 

The darker side of the moon we know now,

But those great poets they never seen,

A deadly place, where silence looms,

Cold, dry, where no wind blows,

Still I read how lovely the moon looks,

Yeah, imagination and illusions of the minds,

All used to show the might of love.

Did anyone of those in any moment thought?

Not love, not the moon or the sunlight reflected,

It is the eyes of her that glittered,

It is the touch of her that felt,

Still in rhymes and meters miles of verse written,

Burying the truth of love,

Exclaiming the minds in manipulation,

Oh’ those poets were all dead and gone,

Where they buried the truth I don’t care,

But in my verse only one the world will read,

The image of my love from the depths of her mind,

In witness of nature and everything in universe.

Wishing You Well

Sad to hear that, well… my best guess would be your boyfriend is away from you and you are probably stressing yourself out with work and school and of course the weather is changing. No one seems to be in a pleasant mood at all. Don’t worry, push away these days without tiring your mind. There are times when what’s asked for the day is survival than success.


 Read the poem in this link…. The explanation is there in the link of the poem itself of why I wrote this poem. It may fit your mood well and may be better it.


 


Immortal Spring


 


May all that from your wishes sprout, In fulfillment shower upon you.


 


Riaz Ahammed


 

How Are You?

Mo Cuishle,

     How are you
doing? I feel like the last I heard from you was one and half year ago. I guess
you are busy with school and work. Anyway an old friend of yours felt curious
to know how you are, that all. 

No matter what you do, do not forget to consume the joy of
the moment. There is joy in every moment. You need to seek it and feel it, in
your heart.

Convey my regards to your mom and Billy. 

Riaz Ahammed.

Yesterdays-08/28/06

On 08/28/06 I had a lot of thoughts about many things I usually don’t want to remember. This poem is all about those thoughts. I started writing from the middle of the poem. It went on like centralized formatted lines, from the middle both ways. It also have something very unusual about my writing. Go figure. Hahaha, if you are a constant reader of my poems you will understand what it is.

08/28/06.

Another morning to my life came,

Wind singing songs with sun’s might,

But mind far from all, in thoughts became,

A battle field, where conscience and soul fight.

Trauma in life, O unreal I always thought,

Mind and body in real and fantasy it stalks,

What my mind through the journey brought,

As in unjust passions all real feelings lost.

The story of a mind I write,

When empty inside I feel,

Oh’ in a day in every way bright,

Pain from my mind slowly peel.

Long ago when around seaside I walked,

When smaller were the footprints I left,

Never did my legs I let to be soaked,

But the footprints I left by the waves swept.

And in those days to yesterdays never I looked,

But in these days, to those days my mind I scan,

Nothing unusual to my mind hooked,

Elusive, from the waves I always ran.

In pain, though in my mind I cried,

Only myself in every way to blame,

And all the ways to reach back to life I tried,

Only the left out feeling with more pain came.

In my garden no flowers bloomed,

Even as the spring time long ago passed,

All the buds I have seen left me in gloom,

And to myself no questions I asked.

Oh’ summer only leave more warmth and drought,

Though bright the sun only left blazing heat,

Oh’ in my own soul many times I sought,

And the answers exist in every heart beat.

Of souls that I in arrogance left,

Oh only darkness all around and inside feel,

As another time my elusive feet dried I kept,

Oceans far away, wounds self inflicted, deep and unhealed.

When will I see the ocean again I know not,

As another day to night bade farewell,

For my soul what prayer I should say I know not,

Entering virtual death to everything I too bade farewell

08/27/06.

“Have a good morning” said the moon and bade farewell,

The morning will be good the sun with warmth declared,

That never got me out of my bed but with arrogance I slept,

By noon the slowly creeping in fall weather got the sun tamed,

And to the cool wind I asked,

“Why you alone bring me cold?

When the rest of the living gives,

Only heat upon the face and inside the mind?”

 

Then about the living I thought,

Oh’ they race for the material well being,

A race I thought many-a-times I lost and stopped,

Then after mirages knowing what they were, continued.

 

Oh’ when the living fell and rot,

Bury then away and the race continues,

Those who loved, in tears may pray,

Those who cared not, spit and walk away.

 

To the buried, the hollow meaning of life will be known,

As the material being back to earth dissolves,

No actions, no wealth and no beauty will be known,

As everything becomes dust from where we were born.

 

Still in the middle of the crowd I race,

The worst of all criminals I am,

As with knowledge I still wander around,

Going round and round, trying to bite, a tail nonexistent,

Smiling blushingly at all who cared to watch,

Then again back to my own mockery I return.

 

The morning was good, so the noon time, so said the evening,

“Define the good, and in that definition stay,

Mock your own conscience with blunders of the world,

And bury yourself in dark, dream filled sleep, meaningless,

Even the sleep is another race to be won isn’t it?”

 

As with questions answerless the evening danced away,

Listening to many tunes rested I,

Then to the “Another Race” evening said I approached,

Remembering many faces to the bed I said,

“All gone only darkness remain,

And to the depth of dark, you take me,

Every night, hate you not O bed, hate you not,

As when I wake up and see light afresh,

Reminded I will be about how wonderful,

The light upon all those faces passed.”

 

Then leaving silence to loom I bade farewell,

To my conscious being.

08/26/06.

Clouds and the autumn gloom denied.

The wonders of the day behind the clouds,

Oh’ my daily routines broke,

As morning left me to thoughts of despair,

My sadness event the clouds felt,

And their cold tears showered.

Oh’ on a weekend, Oh’ why the gloom linger,

What wrong the people of the world did?

O they all did no wrong

And they all too in the gloom lived, smile-less.

From the despair of the morning gloom,

My mind the role of a phoenix bird took,

Gathering the ashes left by morning fire,

And all through the day to my conscience he spoke,

Which in essence here I write;

“Didn’t we walked in the paths so wrong?

Didn’t we flew in dreams that shouldn’t have seen?

Oh’ where is the whisperer in you conscience?

That only left gloom all around and in you too.

A woman’s mind touched you not,

Neither you did touched any woman at all,

But the silhouettes you drew upon me cried,

Losing their way in pursuits meaningless,

In me where belief, truth and passions pure,

You imprinted, from well loved examples, through the ages.

Now when into the middle-ages stepping,

Where nothing to look back to,

Oh’ every step into darkness laid, slipping,

And today or tomorrow the inevitable will happen,

The fall of the bubbled up character.

Then together we must gather,

This body as a prison for us given,

And to life so perfect we will guide,

Never to go down with the fall,

But to stand up and walk again,

As true as the precious waiting,

Unknown to us but to the character perfect left in us.

Oh’ time and distance to us matters not,

So waiting is a word for us meaningless,

Let us dream about that life so perfect,

With another conscience and mind with love filled,

For us and her material heart beat in illusions we hear.

So, near to us, so far away from this body.”

Oh’ the mind of mine in insanity spoke,

And I shut him up with laughs of mine,

Intoxicated I am not, insane a bit,

But all in ways so wonderful.

The night arrived to me, mind and conscience unknown,

When another preaching my mind started,

My material ears I shut and shut my conscious mind,

To argue in soliloquy in my sub-conscious,

As material being of mine in tiredness fell asleep.

AgeOfSurvival-CoverA1
The book Age Of Survival my collection of poems is available in all major online book outlets.

 

I am on a break from“Yesterdays” I will be back with those poems. There is nothing specialabout the break. Just thought I will take a break in posting that’sall. I write them everyday.

  Now back to my old style poem… this time Lika inspired well.

Angel Lika. 

Oh’ in a dream I saw, a dead end I reached,

And with a heart that lost all hopes,

At the corner of the street I sat,

Crippled thoughts and dried out throat,

Oh’ even in the autumn cold,

Heat from inside felt,

And in heavy breathes I sweat,

And losing my breath I wept.

Got up I and around the block I walked,

Kicking pebbles and empty soda cans,

They all meant something sometime,

Precious pieces now in dust kicked,

By someone precious never was.

Oh’ how lost I am, I know not,

As serenity became an old English word,

The actions to create tranquility, by the world discarded.

Sadness around me with light and wind danced,

“Disappointed I am” said I,

And again at the corner of the street I sat,

More gloom added by the clouds above gathered,

Then, Oh’ all barriers broken,

And a mix of green and blue light came,

Erasing every gloom around,

Soothing body and mind with coolness,

Oh’ like a feather covering me I felt,

As the tranquility of heavens unknown I felt.

The dream gone when into the morning I woke,

And eating my breakfast to her I went,

Eagerly watching the computer screen,

To see her online I waited,

Then upon the screen her flashed,

From dark her face bloomed to my mind,

Oh’ senses in unity paused and nothing else I felt,

Then to me up close her eyes she showed,

The mix of blue and greenish colored eyes I saw,

The beauty of the dusk as mascara upon her eyes I saw,

The passions of every heart of the future I felt,

The sanctity of womanhood upon her filled,

And upon her dissolved every disappointment of mine,

As smile after smile she showered,

Her smiles covered me with a feeling smooth,

Caressing every feeling and emotions deep,

Oh’ the true fulfillment of my dream, Angel Lika.
