Bleeding at my typewriter…

Ernest Hemingway once said, “There’s nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” But what happens, when you can’t bleed? You cut yourself a million times, you see the scars, you feel the pain, yet not a drop of blood flows. What happens when all your blood is gone,…

The Right Way to Mourn

Is there the right way to mourn,The death of someone you love?We’ve all seen it in movies,Tears flooding down the eyes.Sad music, rain and all things grey,But real life doesn’t sway that way.  Some people do cry their hearts out,Heart-wrenching guttural cries,While some just let out  a few sobs,In the memory of the ones that…

Isolation

Faking smiles, forcing laughter,This crowded world is such a torture,All the stupid, “Hi!”s and “Hello!”s,The unmeant, “How are you?”s,Nobody ever really cares,Isolation, everybody fears.So, the cold hugs and dead handshakesWorld is so full of fakes. In places that are the crowdiest,Are where I feel the loneliest.It’s so tiring and heart wrenching,So, strenuous is all the faking.I…

The Uncelebrated Mothers

The giver of life, a forever friend,Cheers to mothers, all over the world. But this Mother’s Day, let’s celebrate bigger,Happy Mother’s Day to the uncelebrated mothers. The mothers who killed their own babies,The mothers who gave up their children. They have been called evil, monsters and what not,Their own guilt kills them every single day. Let go of your…

Shhh… Don’t utter a word

Oh, dear little girl, it is dead unfair,You were touched against your will,Stripped off your self-esteem,You are feeling dirty, vulnerable, weak,And all you want to do is scream,It’s justice that you need.But shh… Don’t utter a word,It’s you who will be questioned. Oh, dear innocent one, it is dead unfairYou were raped by your dearest,Someone you…

Sunshine & Me

Birds sing their happy tunes,And flowers do their happy dance,Everyone is so happy,The world is filled with jolly vibes.Do you know the reason why?It’s the beautiful sunshine. Glorified by poets of every eon,Sign of happiness, symbol of hope,Loved by children who loves to play,Oh, how happy are the surfers too!While everyone switches to outdoor mode,As I…

Never Falling In Love Again

You made a vow to yourself,To fall in love, never again.Tending to your broken heart,You believed love is a myth. But then a miracle happened,Sky was pink once again.You broke the vow you made.There were red roses everywhere. It was all so perfectly perfect,You dreamed of forever and always.Only to be shattered once again,Broken and battered once…

Trash Comments

Isn’t it super-duper easy,To hide behind your device,As your use a pseudonym,Fear giving out your name,Or reveal your true face? Passing random comments,To random people,Who are living their life,Cause you don’t have your own.Isn’t it super-duper easy? Does it make you feel cool?Or that you are superior?Who do you think you are?Will I be scared of you?Nay,…

The Lost Friend

Oh, dear boy, you had such a beautiful smile,One that shone bright through your eyes.Oh, dear boy, you were such a kind soul,Wild, free and out of control.You were so carefree, I envied youAlways surrounded by jolly hues. But then, tragedy stuck you like lightening,Stole that smile, so bright and heart-warming.Rivers and rivers of tears were…
