When the phone rings

My phone rings and I’m rattled,To pick or not, I battle,For I fear the news,Shall give me bruise,I don’t want to hear,How I lost someone dear,Every ring gives me terror,Bad news they deliver,Almost one person each day,Is taken far far away,Friends, family, relatives,All wiped away by diseases,With no pause in between,Deaths after deaths I see,Yet…

A Battle Within

“Strained eyes, cramped neck,Don’t make excuses,You’ve got deadlines to meet,You’ve goals to reach,Push a little harder,You gotta be stronger,There’s no time to rest,You gotta give your best.” “Take a long deep breath,Don’t be hard on yourself,You do what you can,With a smile on your face,It’s okay to take a break,Relax, refresh, and hit reset,Never give…

Junk Field Heart

I don’t have a junk box,Just a junk field in my heart,Where I store the memories,The good, the bad, & the ugly,Chambers are decorated with grudges,Carved by pins, knives, and bullets,Some fresh, some rusted,All gifted in the name of love,You can’t ignore the thick stench,Of bad blood and dead hopes,The cacophonic murmurs,Voices that just don’t…

A Unicorn’s Chores

Magical, beautiful, calm, & pure,Strong legs & horn that cure,That’s how unicorns are meant to be,But I’m kinda different and very very lazy. It’s an innate behavior they say,For unicorns to keep poisons at bay,But this century is a lot harder,Than those seen by my ancestors. Oceans, rivers, lakes, and ponds,All are polluted beyond bounds,How…

Rest In Peace?

That wretched doctor who took my life,I curse him from beneath the grave,Oh, how he said cancer is to blame,After operating me for tumor, what a shame!Oh, how my daughter cried,As she saw me rapidly fade,And my sons gave up their dreams,Too soon, they had responsibilities to take,Then, there’s this magical little girl,Whom I never…

Lost

I don’t know.Don’t know anymore,My purpose,Destiny,Do I even have any?Don’t know anymore. NaPoWriMo Day 7 My frail attempt at creating a shadorma stanza. Featured image by: Maria Orlova from Pexels

I’d hate me, If I were you

Forgive, forget, and move on,I don’t know, how you do it.‘Cause 4 years and 5 months later,I still can’t look myself in the mirror.After what I did to you,I don’t know me anymore.Who am I? I have no clue,And my heart is still sore.But you forgave me in an instant,Didn’t even ask for an explanation.And…

Invictus

Out in the world, ruthless as hell,Beaten and battered on and on,I thank my parents the most,For teaching me how to thrive. In a bloody soup of all problems,I’ve learned to stay afloat,Under all sorts of crisis,I’ve cried, yet never gave up. Besides this world filled with hate,Love, in the purest form, exists,And I shall…

Warm Winters & Cold Summers

It’s the same roads we’ve driven,More times than I can count,The icy trails just add on,To the warmth, I feel within,I felt so safe sipping my coffee,With you right by my side,Always smiling, yet so cautious,Ah! I felt the warmest…On winter drives with you. But fate played such a twist,For on the same roads that…

Dubiety of a Chaotic Mind

I’ve got this way with words,Is it a blessing or is it a curse?To feel everything so deeply,To be shattered so gravely,Ah, a curse it must be, I say. But then I fly so high,Feel euphoric in the smallest joy,Hope never leaves my side,Even when despair takes over my life,Ah, it’s a blessing, I admit….
