Perfection revealing Imperfection

Perfection revealing Imperfection

she smiled

to hide her agony

her eyes betrayed her

tears emerged

in her deep dark eyes

telling the story loud

like always

they never fail

to announce her pain

Oh, she is fed up

being played by her own eyes

how they have achieved perfection 

declaring HER to be imperfect

to be able to pretend

even a smile

Back in Time

Back in Time

voices coming
from the far end
calling over my name
come with us
give us your hand
let’s just play a game

through the telescope
of my heart
I looked
for the strangers calling
realizing who they were
my tears started falling

with a bunch of kids
It was me
on my face
there was a gentle smile
calling myself to ME
a little back in time

wish I could go
back to myself
wish I could relive
those simple
yet precious – pleasures of life

When no one believed in me – I did

When no one believed in me – I did

when no one believed in me – I did

I painted my heart

with an ocean of emotions

every color shined beating the sun

I celebrated my tears

left behind my fear

embraced my wrinkles

like a survivor

I never stopped

discovered my dark side

enjoyed my hope in pain

here i am to pen down

i made it worth reading

and so to write again

The Day I Die

The Day I Die

I wept while singing my songs

tears flowed through my eyes as I walked my way

faced challenges on my path

got pulled by failures on my way

each step I took, took my breath away

yes, I was scared, I cursed this pain

it didn’t stop, the struggle on my way

kept showering its pressure enormous on me

still, time taught me to bear the loss

my will pushed me to enjoy my struggle

my worth told me to learn from my failures

I carried on facing the life

I embraced my pain, I made it my weapon

I fought against the odds with mighty strength

they shall honor me a warrior

the day I die

My Dear Paper Dictionary

My Dear Paper Dictionary

my dear paper dictionary

will you forgive me please

for i don’t hold you anymore

i dumped you in that old box

sealed, kept somewhere in my garage

there were days, when i couldn’t do without you

i would open and search through you, a hundred times

on days when i wrote essays in my school

would you forgive me for i am selfish now

lazy to flip through your many pages

i now depend on the latest means

today, i have the urge to open the sealed box

in which i dumped you with my own hands

today, i have the craving to hold you again

i promise to keep you safe in my bag

promise to carry you along everywhere

forgive me my dear paper dictionary

i shall dump you NEVER again

waterfall, dear waterfall

would you fall on my soul

cleanse me, make me pure

butterfly, sweet butterfly

would you come touch me

like I am your flower

peacock, pretty peacock

would you open your wings

I wanna bathe in the rain

chocolate, yummy chocolate

would you melt in my mouth

give your sweetness to me

river, flowing river

would you make me flow with you

I wanna dive into the ocean

lastly

sorrow, Mr. Sorrow

all my above requests have been accepted

so would you leave me alone

today, I wanna live my life

Sound of the Pendulum

Sound of the Pendulum

that house, where I was born

many things about it, I still remember

thinking of them, bring life to my soul

one of them, I distinctly remember

an old clock, that hung on the wall

I was a child, I never bothered about the time

yet I relished, the sound of the pendulum

the announcements it made every hour

to all the members of the family..

in that house we all made memories

we laughed, we shared smiles

we ate dinner together

every morning, we saw the sunrise

we too had many moments of pain

we cried together, our sorrows – we embraced

there, I met my childhood, my siblings

for heaven, saw my grandparents leaving

so much, that happened in the house

while the clock, went on ticking

the sound of the pendulum

still close to my heart

from a little Height

from a little Height

on the top of the mountain

as I stood and looked down

the city didn’t look the same to me

to my wonderment, it seemed another

thousands of dim lights twinkled at me

never thought it would look so different

from a distance, from a little height

all those people walked in union

the markets didn’t seem conjested anymore

the cars running, injecting life into the roads

the stunning map view of the city

made it look flawless, somehow a little fresh

I couldn’t see no hunger, no poverty

there didn’t seem to be any dirt on the streets

kids laughing, racing to catch a kite

how I felt the lost zeal coming to life

I thought to myself

the city isn’t as dull as I thought it was

it’s still full of charm that needs to be discovered

I still could find happiness there, had I endeavoured

today, I realize the lost beauty of the city

may be because I am looking at it

from a distance, from a little height

I am watching the city

from the top of the mountain

Make love to me

Make love to me

holding a feather in my hand

I let my imagination, kiss the rainbow

lying on the earth, shyly

I welcome musings beautiful

to come – make love to me

The Highway

The Highway

millions spent to take us HIGH

on a WAY to go ahead, live our dreams

connecting cities, opening doors to progress

speeding cars, crossing each other

on the HIGHWAY

flawless roads, cottony clouds in the sky

drizzling drops falling on the mountains

transforming a journey simple to electrifying

racing to catch the sun in the horizon

giving a race to the moon following

on the HIGHWAY

few exits, many signs to destination

few diversions, but mostly running straight

phenomenal architecture worth a praise

taking them ahead who drive on it

the HIGHWAY

Silhouette leaf

Silhouette leaf

Against the light in the far night sky

the leaf, gave in selflessly

in agreement to give up its identity

to loose its color true, its very beauty

turned itself into a shape a little dark 

its outlines symmetrical

crafted by the finest hands of the almighty

unaware of the fact it looked even prettier 

surrendering to it’s love to the moon

bowing to its shiny silver gleam

the leaf not just a leaf anymore

but a silhouette leaf

when Music was Born

when Music was Born

drums, beaten vigorously with the sticks

strings of guitar, mercilessly squeezed and pulled

saxophone saturated, overflowed with air in its lungs

keys of piano, wept the pressure of pianist’s fingers

harmonica, went almost out of breath

cymbal, going deaf with unstopping collision

accordion, blown up to the extent of explosion

synthesizer, mourned to keep up the pace

chimes, yearned for wind not to blow anymore

songster, with his closed eyes

went nearly blind for the depth of the song

I was there, I witnessed that moment

when MUSIC was born

I am not your Property

I am not your Property

you can hold me, look into my eyes

you could embrace me, give me your hand

we could stay together for hours

we could take long walks on the beach

you could kiss me gently on my cheeks

you are a soul, I take comfort to be with

still you are an individual, you are not me

you could choose to say good bye when you wish

you could leave me to be on my own

no matter what you decide, what we decide together

one thing, I must make very clear

even though I am glad to be in your company

I am not, and shall never be – your property

A Poem – born

A Poem – born

a heart so true

flowing emotions

so full of pain

a few words – golden

the world curious

holds its breath to see 

emerging on the paper

a Poem beautiful

mySestina Theory behind following You

mySestina Theory behind following You

Dear fantastic fellow bloggers

There is a theory behind me following you

Not just for the sake of you following me, that I follow you

I follow you, for I love to read your mind

I love your creativity, the art in your soul

I relish your ideas, that can change the world

I am amazed at your pictures, where you capture time

I take advantage from your lessons of life

I laugh merrily at your funny posts

You bring me the world on my computer screen

You help me come out of my testing times

How I feel so connected to you

How we share a fantastic relationship

And that’s my theory of following you

I am not simply following you, for you are following me

I follow you to see the world through a million eyes

your eyes

sweetness unpredictable

sweetness unpredictable

your sweetness

so unpredictable 

keeps me thinking

keeps me worried

I just feel

I may loose my mind

for I don’t know when

would you start

to taste sour

maybe bitter…

Your sweetness…

leaving me

hungry for more

an Apology Reckless

an Apology Reckless

I demanded today an apology from my heart

for I have suffered a million times of it’s recklessness

I know it is sorry today, really

I also know, it will make me cry again tomorrow

at the end of the day, it is my HEART

isn’t it meant to be so

I guess, I will have to forgive it again

A little Prayer

A little Prayer

say a little prayer today

say a few special words to the almighty

close your eyes, join your hands

connect yourself with the unseen

the power of someone guarding us

healing wounds of all kinds

God is a little shy to show himself

has chosen to be hid from all eyes

yet he made sure not to miss

someone somewhere saying a prayer

so let’s just take out a moment of peace

away from this world of fantasies

make time a little worthy to be spent

let’s just all of us

say a little prayer today

Politics sucking on Humanity

Politics sucking on Humanity

The kings of politics all around the world,

Thriving for power, greedy for land and gold,

Pretending to make their people to grow,

Pretending to sweat for their country,

The reality is instead shocking, pitiful,

Filling their pockets with coins of gold,

Politician – dividing beyond repair,

Dividing the people, their thoughts, their belief,

Dividing the wealth, feeding more to the rich,

Filling innocent minds with filth,

The filth of hatred, the filth of revenge,

Politicians dividing the world of today,

Erasing humanity, filling rage,

Making communities to stand against each other,

Has it not become too easy for them all,

To cheat, to stab, to kill their own people’s trust,

Seems as if their hearts have stopped beating,

Lost compassion, kindness stays far from them,

The country’s progress not relevant at all,

All that these politicians can think of,

Is to divide and rule,

Sitting comfortably, enjoying the throne.

not a child anymore

not a child anymore

my eyes dried of tears

my expressions don’t cry along with me

when i can’t take it no more, i scream with pain

yet, no one seems to notice

then i tell myself

not to worry

it’s got to be like this only

i am not a child anymore

The Green Girl

The Green Girl

green girl emerges in the jungle

long hair kissing her knees

divine body covered in leaves

fragrant as if bathed in flowers

glowing face with eyes blue green

her manner graceful like a queen

she holds the sun in one hand

in the other she holds the moon

showering the life in the jungle

with light, making it serene

trees bend their branches in honor

as she walks her elegant way

an army of all sorts of animals

follow their queen in silence

a sight so charmingly delightful

when the green girl emerges in the jungle

Dear Tiny Sparrow

Dear Tiny Sparrow

my dear tiny SPARROW

i miss your chirping in the mornings

all my childhood, you woke me

before the sun could announce the day

the nest you made many times

in a hole on the wall of my house

i climbed on the back of a few kids

to watch your tiny eggs laid

my heart breaks to learn you are extinct

for the sharp rays of the mobile towers

guilt contains my heart to comprehend

your presence will never be

relished by my children

your musical chirping will never

wake them up in the mornings

for them, remains only

the hollow power of the mobile towers

and not a tiny beautiful you

knowingly, unknowingly

i repent to have killed you

o my dear SPARROW.. i miss you

could love be less, could love be more

could love be less, could love be more

could love be less, could love be more

for love is love, complete in itself

when i say “I love you my love”

I am meaning “you are the world to me”

I am meaning to do things, whether big or petty

to see a flash of smile on your lips

I am meaning to assure you to have such faith

you shall see no pain, for I will take it all away

even when I am freezing, cold in the wind

in my arms, you shall remain warm enough

I shall cry your tears, will give you my smile

for in love

that’s the only way to my pleasure

my love for you, as I perceive

couldn’t be less, it couldn’t be more

for love is love complete in itself
