Life’s Like A River

Like a river flowing,Life must keep going.You may pause a little at the dam,But can’t stay there forever man!Sometimes it might take a slower pace,Sometimes it could be a race,And pebbles and rocks on the way,Just make it a beautiful journey.While there’s a single destinationThat comes to all naturally,Don’t take the flow for granted, You…

Enlighten me, please

When you said forever,Did you mean, till death do us part?Or till your love fades away? When you said you’ll be there,Did you mean, always?Or just when it suits you?When you said we’ll make it,Did you really mean it?Or was it a little white lie? All the promises we made,Did you just change?Or you’ve been…

A long road ahead

There’s a long road ahead,And I don’t know where it takes.Will I reach my destination?Or will I go astray? There’s a long road ahead,And the journey is scary.Will I fulfill my pursuit?Or will I lose myself? There’s a long road ahead,And I’m getting tired.How long can I keep up?Where does this journey end? Note:I usually write a…

Defining oneself

Mistakes you have made,Crimes you have committed,Hearts you have broken,People you have used,Choices you made,Promises that you didn’t keep,Lies you have told,All the bad things you have done,That heart-sinking guilt,The judgmental looks,All that people say about you,Nothing defines you. You are not your past,Don’t let it cripple you.You are not what people think,Don’t let them brainwash…

A midnight love story

It was love at first sightIn a beautiful moonlit nightYou stood alone by the beachEnjoying the cool summer breeze. I was taking a midnight strollWhen I laid my eyes on youYou waved at me with a dazzling smileI just looked at you in awe. You weren’t Greek god gorgeousBut you were enchanting to meIn a glimpse I…

Money vs Humanity

It breaks my heart everyday,To see the world, go this way.Where money triumphs over humanityEach of us loosing sanity. I do not claim to be a saint,I do wish to enjoy the world’s bests.I want to own all things money can buy,But never at the cost of humanity. When a doctor turns a patient away,I wonder where…

Treachery

Your intense gaze,Set a fire to my soul.The fiery flames of betrayal,Shook me to my deepest coreAnd burnt me down to ashes. Seeing her in your arms,Set a storm in my heart.The thunderstorm of pain Spread all over my bodyAnd shattered my heart to pieces.  As your lips reached hers,I was out of air.Drowning in your…

Come home

An ocean of tears,Two shattered hearts,Our broken vows,Millions of arguments,Words we never meant,Night long battles,Bruises that still sting,Marks that just won’t go,All the unsaid apologies,I’ll forget it allJust come home. Featured image by: Виктория Бородинова from Pixabay

Addiction

You’re the best thing I’ve ever hadYou, my dear, turn me mad. Society, family, must-dos, and must-bes,I fought will all for this addiction.  You make me come alive,You make me see the light. Everyone says you’re taking me down,But you’re a catholicon to all my problems.  Yet they say, you’re poison,Taking me further from my ambition. But…

Sky

The deep blue sky that once brought me peace,Now crushes me down to a million broken pieces.  Stargazing used to be my solace,Now brings me pain like a dagger stabbed right through my chest.  Bright summer sun I dearly adored,Does nothing more than burn my heart to dark grey ashes. Floating clouds that I once…

Dear Laziness

You laid by my side through thick and thin,Stayed on my bed as I cried to sleep,You’re always there, especially when I’m low,But please dear, I want you to leave me alone. You do more harm than good to me,You pull me down every chance you get.As you envelop me in your warm embrace,I forget…

Myriad of emotions

You sent me a turmoil of emotionsEach in different colourWith just a simple gestureA ‘Happy Holi’ text.  Your greeting on festival of colours,Plunged me into a myriad of colours;Colours of emotions,Colours of happiness and grief. At first I was hit with bright red,Colour of love and intense passion.Then it was a beautiful shade of green,Colour…

A Computerized Life

As I delete your phone numberI wish I could delete the memories too.Then I wonder, how cool would it beIf everything was so easy. If I could block the pain, the hurt, the miseryAnd download positive vibes and lots of joy.Undo all the mistakesAnd live life full of second chances. Wouldn’t it be so amazing,If we could…

Undo it all

I want to untext you.All the late night talks,Chatting till 4 am,I want to undo it all. I want to unsee you.Those cute snaps you send,That I hold close to my chest,I want to undo it all. I want to unknow you.All the time we spent,Getting know each other,I want to undo it all. I want…

Men don’t cry

Son fell and scrapped his knee,Bawling his eyes out, he called his daddy.Daddy wanted to kiss the boo-boos away,But ‘boy’s don’t cry,‘ is what daddy said. After all, that’s what he was taught,Men are to be strong and emotionless.  Sick wife struggled cooking for the family,She wished her husband would give her a hand.Husband’s heart broke…

Take a KitKat break instead!

‘Can I light you a cigarette?’ ‘Do you have a lighter?’ ‘Can I borrow a cigarette?’ ‘Let’s take a cigarette break!‘ It’s so common. Ice-breakers and networking among smokers are so much easier. I can’t comprehend how it goes, you share a cigarette and suddenly you are best friends. Maybe I’m exaggerating but look around…

Slut

In fairy tales she lived,Magic, she chased She was just a girl, Who refused to grow up.   Love was pious Saved it, for her perfect oneSomeone meant just for her Someone she was meant for.   Naive little girlShe fell in love.She was all hisAnd he was only her. Only to be deserted by…

A Woman Must Be…

‘Pure,’ they say,‘A woman must be pure.’Untouched by any other man,That’s reserved only for her husband.  ‘Skilled,’ they say,‘A woman must be skilled.’An expert in all household chores,Prefect to move into her husband’s home.  ‘Soft,’ they say,‘A woman must be soft.‘Never voicing a word of objection,Quiet and humble, even when she’s trampled. ‘Pretty,’ they say,‘A…

Death wish

I wanna slit my wrist And stab a dagger through my chest. I wanna feel the pain As the red liquid flows out my vein. Empty my mind slow and steady As I drift into a forever sleep. I want close my eyes Never to open once again. It’s a beautiful life But death seems…

The Ghosting Cycle

From the moment I wake up in the morning Till the time I drift into slumber at night There’s one thing I want to tell you ‘I hate you!’ While I go on with my day One eye, always on the phone Even when I know, you ain’t gonna reply I hate you! Months goes…

Suicidal Instincts

‘Who am I?’, I question myself,
Why am I feeling so dead inside?
I feel tears well up in my eyes
But I don’t understand why.

Then I mask up a smile
And go on with my life,
Rush and rush the day goes
Staying busy helps me get by.

But in most unexpected of moments
Clouds of gloom envelops me again
And I’m there wondering,
Why am I suddenly so sad?

Some days I want to slit my wrist
Or jump off the tallest building
Then I wonder, why would I do that?
I’m a girl who loves life.

I ride my bike the fastest I can
And for a split second, imagine me dead
Then realization hits me straight
Why am I thinking that way?

Why am I drawn so much to death?
This terrifying suicidal instinct!
I’m a girl who loves life
I’ve got so much to live.

GEMS Journey

Red, Green, Yellow, Blue,Little colorful candies, Oh, how I loved them!They are heaven in the taste buds,Gotta thank Cadbury for that. So when daddy told me GEMS,Graded English Media School,Wasn’t what I though of.I imagined Hansel & Gretel storiesA fairy tale kinda building. But then came the admission test,Tall buildings that I got lost in,Made of bricks…

Quiet Mangalbazar

Bikes honking and people chattering,There weren’t any, it was mesmerizing.The surreal beauty of Mangalbazar,I was stunned, even amazed! It is a privilege, I must say,Soaking in the glory of this mystique.It was as if the fables had come to life,Until I was hit by a heart sinking dread. The last time I saw this place empty,Earth was…

Not so cheesy kind of love

Love, we weren’t looking for it,We just found it in each other.Companionship like no other,Forged by mutual respect and trust. You never went down on your knees,And neither did I.We never sore those cheesy promises,We just lived it every day. Day after day our love grew deeper,As we overcame each obstacle,Every fight, every misunderstanding,We faced it, together…
