In Memoriam

“It is the peculiar nature of the world to go on spinning no matter what sort of heartbreak is happening.”
 ― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

Let’s Reach the Heights of Craziness

The illness of Honesty,
Leave it and come, run and come
My heart is warmly inviting you…
Let’s party all night.
Reach the heights of 
Craziness for a change,
Throw your hands up into the air
And let the lights be dim.

I am a little spoilt
You too become a little spoilt.
I’ll take a step forward,
You too take a step forward.
Throw your hands up
Into the air,
Let yourself free for once-
Free from the wrath of sophistication.
Let the intentions be a little
Wild and crazy for 
 A moment.

The atmosphere seems intoxicated,
Almost like alcohol.
All this intoxication that is spreading-
Let’s drink it up…
These intoxicating moments 
Are making me excited
Let’s get crazy!

We’re in the age of Prime Youth,
Make some mischief.
In this age-
In the journey of the Heart,
What’s wrong and what’s right?
Let’s reach the heights
Of craziness for a change.
Throw your hands up into the air
And ‘Create’ till your heart’s desire-
Let the lights be dim…!
