A Swan Song Never Sung (For Sourav Ganguly)

If it was only a game
I could have played my part
But nights and no days
when no light passed
I realised
Game's over a little too soon
A shining moon of the past
A vicious ploy's victim at last
May be I'll fight and settle the score
May be my pain will grow a little more
Who knows what
but as of now
I stand alone, victimized.
Justice is a notion
good as a word,
No one speaks of it
like no one does for you
Cos' no one cares
Whether you are part of the game
or a victim of it.

Simple Today

Lazy afternoons and warm mornings
Life's limited to simple cravings
Music to soothe the soul
Books to lift your mood
Days can be cruel and complex sometimes
But this simple today is just too good.
