I carry Your Soul

I carry Your Soul

I am the ladybird

I carry vibrance in me

I am the bee

I carry sweetness of honey

I am the firefly

I carry glow of hope 

I am the dragonfly

I carry dreams from this world to the other

I am the butterfly

I carry softness of colors

I am all, everything is me

I am nature, I carry life

I am love, I carry your soul

dying within

they see me smiling

they see me taking my breaths

they see me doing my chores

they see me never stopping

yet they don’t see me

dying within

the test infinite

the test infinite

life – a little too long

a test infinite

never ending

I’m not sure

if winning matters


at all

Monotony of the Night

Monotony of the Night

the night with the stars infinite

beautiful once with its own darkness

fascinating for its eternal bliss

kept me intrigued for a little too long

filled me deep for years too many

sometimes with shine, at times with dark

the time now, has colored my hair grey

the night still the same with twinkling stars

yet not as pretty as long ago

it now has become my habit

its beauty now – monotonous to me

Isn’t it Fucking Crazy

Isn’t it Fucking Crazy

as she walks on the road

they stare at her legs

they smile lustfully

as they imagine her curves

they wink to each other 

as they whistle to tease her

offering shameless invitations

they pass filthy comments

as she tries to avoid them

they go close, try to touch her

and when she rebels

they end up calling her a slut

isn’t it fucking crazy

simply HUMANS

simply HUMANS

shall we all make a choice today

shall we all hold love in our embrace

shall we all let the hatred be gone

shall we all choose to care for the needy

shall we all try to heal this broken world

shall we try not to let any more tears to be shed

shall we all connect to the humans around

shall we prove to our own selves

how capable of compassion we all are

shall we stand in union, shall we raise our voice

against the cold wars, against cruelty

shall we let all the weapons to be buried

shall we choose to produce grains over bombs

shall we feed the hungry children in the world

shall we not aim a gun at their innocent faces

shall we all keep our caste and religion aside

shall we all accept humanity to be our God

shall we remind ourselves today

we were all born simply HUMANS

and shall we all try to remain so

Pieces of my life

Pieces of my life

i was busy collecting the pieces of my life

i was wishing to put them all together

i needed to learn all that i had gathered all these years of my life

i could find nothing, it didn’t seem meaningful

and i started to put the pieces back again

trying to change their position this time

adding the new pieces that i found during the course

guess what my dear

i am still doing it, putting them all together

but i have now learnt

not to look for the answers

What do they mean by HATRED

What do they mean by HATRED

a child, as she learnt to speak a few words

asked her mother an innocent question

mommy “what do they mean by HATRED”

mommy chose to keep silent

she never answered the question

the child grew up into a beautiful soul

she only had love and kindness in store

she spread it all around the world

we now call her Mother Teresa

Understanding of Luxury

Understanding of Luxury

a man

fantasized to drive a lamborghini 

he refused to compromise

to settle for a car any lesser


another man

fantasized – to walk by the roadside

he dreamt – of running on his own legs

poor him

he couldn’t do without a wheel chair


my heart cries to know

their understanding of luxury

The Ghost’s Joke

The Ghost’s Joke

for I didn’t want him to learn 

I was shit scared of his presence

and in the meantime

cracking jokes all night

Damn Color of the Skin!

Damn Color of the Skin!

04I have seen them rejecting

I have seen them honoring

the color of the human skin ?

white, brown or black

to decide people’s fate !

must I say – how rubbish !!

how low have we all gotten

how rotten have our minds become

wish, I could put a stop to it all

I wish, I had one color of humanity

I would fill my tub over and again

until I paint each soul with the same

Am I silly enough yet?

Am I silly enough yet?

I wanna be silly.. I wanna be silly

I wanna run like crazy with my hair open

I wanna let the wind kiss me for long

I wanna see people looking at me in awe

I wanna see them smiling back at me

I wanna be silly.. yes, I wanna be silly

I wanna go hug the tigers in the wild

I wanna sit on an elephant and take a ride

I wanna climb up those trees like a monkey

I wanna jump and hop around in the woods

I wanna be silly.. am I silly enough yet

I wanna drape long curtains around my body

I wanna imagine myself on the moon

I wanna shout out my inner voice to the world

I wanna tell them all, yeah 

I could be really silly sometimes

today being one of those days

am I silly enough yet?

Maybe / Maybe not

Shall I keep you hanging in the middle

Shall I keep you wondering the whole night

You’ve asked me for my hand

let me not say a “yes”

let me not say a “no”

I am loving to tease you a little

I am smiling now 

as I tell you “maybe

Water so Pure

Water so Pure


silence around me was divine

I felt the woods around

long tall trees beautified with climbers

flowers of all colors covered the leaves

an image emerged

as I looked at the surface of water

in a boat I sat to cross the river

somehow my loneliness never wanted to leave

it urged me to stay alone for some more time

to enjoy my time with only me that night

to keep rowing the boat I sat in

in the middle of the river

looking at my own image

on the surface of water so pure

My Journey to Un-Die

My Journey to Un-Die

you killed me slowly

you made me die

every moment, each second of my life

I couldn’t scream

my voice didn’t help

I was silent all this while 

kept talking to myself

when it got too much

you never would change, I had learnt

you never would stop, making me bleed

to my wounds, you shall never pay heed

I then made my effort to collect myself

I started to sew all pieces of my soul

I wanted to become whole once again

I just wanted to live, my heart realized

must I say it wasn’t easy

I accept, it took me a while

but I had to do it, you left me no choice

it was then my dear, I inspired myself

with all my will, I started

my journey to Undie

The Song of FIRE

The Song of FIRE

must we sing the song of the fire

must we bow to the flames rising high

must we not be scared of their glow

must we inhale their luminance dynamic

must we give in our sins to the inferno

must we envision the passion it hides

must we find pleasure in it’s powerful embrace

must we begin to end the peccable

must we start with ourselves today

must we build a heaven for everyone to stay

each living soul on the earth must sing

sing, the song of the fire in union

Sam & Samantha

“Sam come here”

“No, I won’t”

“Sam, please come here”

“No, I won’t”

“Sam, I got a surprise for you”

“What is it! What is it”

“Sam, you first come here”

“First you tell me the surprise”

“Sam! it won’t remain a surprise if I tell you now”

“I am not coming, unless you tell me what is it”

“Oh Sam! you are impossible”

“So are you Samantha”

that – what Fascinates me

that – what Fascinates me

a mother carrying a new life in her womb

the power of the cells to heal a wound

thousands of stones put together to build a tomb

countless leaves giving life to the tree

cocoon holding caterpillar, setting the butterfly free

peak of the mountain covered with flawless snow

skin of the earth bathing in sun’s glow

aliens sleeping or planning to visit their neighbors

fire in the stars and their gigantic existence

thousands of languages we speak to communicate

expression of the artist in everything they ever create

dreams that we live in the other side of the world

life that we relish when we keep blinking our eyes

this all and much more that makes me wonder

would the list ever be complete or will it ever end

of that – what fascinates me 


image source

Those were the days..

Those were the days..

those were the days

I’m craving for those days

when the list of my treasures was simple yet unique

a peacock feather, dried rose in my book

snacks cooked by my mother every evening

a book gifted by my grandfather

those were the days

I am craving for those days

when we tried to catch the drops of rain

played in mud with a bunch of kids

with no urge for no television

when an iPad would have sounded a miracle

those were the days

still craving for those days

when we relished the fragrance of flowers around

when we welcomed the warmth of the sun

when we didn’t need any gadgets around

when we connected to each other the human way

those were the days

I wish I could just bring them back

I wish I could offer them to the children of today

to make them see, to understand

the real pleasure of life

the Sun craved to set in My Arms

the Sun craved to set in My Arms

the sun craved to set in my arms

the moon urged me to look at it just once

stars wanted to be lit by my light

flowers asked me for my fragrance

honey bees came to me for sweetness

life ran after me to hold it’s hand

miracles started to happen around 

when I started to believe

in ME

The Worst Pretend

The Worst Pretend

Do you see

brothers killing their own brothers..

Do you see the Guns


to protect the Humans

from Humans..

They call them Guns

They call them Guns

complicated are those machines

they call them GUNS

I struggle

to understand their purpose

is it to help the man 

or to kill him

the Curse of Coma

the Curse of Coma

lying on that bed in the ICU

wires attached to every inch of my frame 

the continuous sound of the machines around me

that beep beep killed me every moment

I could see them all around

the nurses, the doctors who came to check on me

their discussions sounded so heartless

for them I was just another patient

the one with no hope of surviving

only a miracle would bring me back

they had told my mother, my father

I was dying, I so wanted to live

desperate to get up to wipe off their tears

how I cursed myself to be the reason 

to bring such pain for them to handle

I wanted to scream, I wanted to move

my helplessness laughed at me every moment

that day arrived, when I closed my eyes

even the ventilator couldn’t make me breathe anymore

that day when my soul left my broken bones

I promised myself never to go into Coma again

fill Me – with You

Will you be my smile, will you also be my tears

I need you to be my fragrance

I want you to be my odour

will you be the shine in my eyes, will you also be my sadness

I need you to make me fly

I want you to take my wings

will you teach me to love, will you also teach me carelessness

I need you to show me the path

I want you to block it sometimes

will you please give me company, will you also be my loneliness

I need you pamper me like a child

I want you to be my annoyance

Are you displeased my dear

are you surprised to see my wishes

are you wondering of the reason

of how could I be so stupid

Then let me tell you my love

I don’t wish to spare even a bit of me

I need you to be every side of me

be it good, be it ugly, be it happy, be it sad

I want you to, only YOU – to fill me

every portion of me

will you please my dear

will you please fill me – with You

I Love you .. beyond Me

I Love you .. beyond Me

one day my dear.. one day

it will all happen

the day shall come

when I too will have a smile on my face

I too shall speak to the sun and the stars

flowers shall blossom to present me with their beauty

the birds shall sing as I would want them to

one day my dear.. one day

the rainbow shall appear as I would please

the rain will fall only on me

I shall jump with joy, I shall soak my soul

sweetness, shall drip off me 

one day my dear.. one day

that day when you shall be in my arms

when I will hold you forever

and shall speak out my heart

that day my dear.. that day

I shall tell you the secret I am yet to reveal

that I Love You beyond myself

your voice is my favorite music

you hold all the power 

to bring the world to me

I fail to be without you

I just can’t be

would you promise to hold me forever

I urge you to complete me

Nothing but a Psycho

Nothing but a Psycho

he broke me into pieces so small

I couldn’t recollect myself

even after years of mending

how deep I must have been pierced

how painful was my journey

thorns spread all over my path

and I wasn’t allowed any shoes

I bled the way so silent

no one knew of my suffering

I wouldn’t have cared if it was the whole world

but it was him – who snatched my soul

it was him – who made me who I am today

nothing by a Psycho

The Scars

The Scars

in a calm serene night

the wind decided not to progress

trees stood in silence

welcoming the Moon

gleaming silver rays

traveled their way

to bathe the angels

nourishing them with purity

water in the lake glowed with shine

a sight so rich, so charming

it hid all the pain behind

& no one seemed to notice

the scars

on the face of the Moon

image source

I am not what they think I am

I am not what they think I am

I am not what they think I am

I am a soul

I have a heart

I feel pain

I have desires

I am not just what they think I am

I am much more

I am someone, in Love

My Life isn’t Perfect

My Life isn’t Perfect

walking through the deserts – I burnt my skin

crossed the forests for miles – I climbed up the tallest of trees

there were oceans on my way

I crossed them swimming with the whales

from the top of the hills – I jumped many times 

many years I have spent – I have come far enough

my life hasn’t been perfect – I must accept

still it keeps me going – it never stops

and that’s one thing – I love about my life

LOVE is the CURE for ALL


LOVE is the RITUAL must we FOLLOW

LOVE is the HUNGER deep within US

LOVE is the COLOR must we BATHE in

LOVE is the SUGAR sweetest of ALL

LOVE is the BITE must we SWALLOW

LOVE is the DIVINE pulling us from SINS

LOVE is the UNIVERSE we are a PART of

The Garland of Diamonds

The Garland of Diamonds

stars wore a garland of diamonds

holding the beads they danced in the sky

were they happy or they were crying

I couldn’t decide as they shed snow flakes

a union of sparkle and of those white tears

images were formed as my eyes could witness

one after the other they changed in the sky

a mother singing a lullaby to her new born

sisters playing and laughing together

a son burying the coffin of his father

two lovers looking into each other’s eyes

such a sight I may never see again

all emotions being played one after the other

all that I could strongly feel in that moment

I lived a full life that night

just by looking into the sky

Good or the Deadly

Good or the Deadly

Driven by our will

blessed with the power of the brain

each one of us is a warrior

fighting our own way

only one thing needs to be realized

if we are giving ourselves

for the GOOD or the DEADLY

A Living Hell

A Living Hell

politics driven in the name of religion

countries being broken

the world divided into bits & pieces

communities pushed to demand autonomy greater

leaving the humanity wounded, bleeding to death

a few kings ruling the rest of the millions

gripping the power, never let it to leave their hands

feeding youth to walk against their own will

pushing them to shed blood, feasting on it

a dirty, rotten game of the thrones

played in the dark by the darkest of the minds

building up a hell on this very earth

rather, making the earth itself

a living Hell

when I turn fifty

when I turn fifty


when I turn fifty

I wonder sometimes

how would I see the world

with the same eyes of mine

my bones would be fragile

wrinkles would emerge on my skin

would I need a few pills to sleep

would I still relish delicious cuisines

then I tell myself

when I turn fifty

I would rather travel the world

I would taste the best wine around

I would laugh to make people laugh

I would spread love and positivity

no, I wouldn’t be fragile or weak

my heart would still be young

when I turn fifty

will you take me the way I am

will you take me the way I am

I am not perfect

but then no one is

with my own flaws

many of them

still I carry something

that’s beautiful

it is my love for you

that’s true forever

growing with each passing moment

so tell me my love

will you excuse my flaws

for my love too deep for you

will you take me the way I am

One More Time

One More Time

wrinkled bed sheet

red lipstick on the pillow

hair undone

clothes on the floor

shoes lying unpaired

two glasses of wine 

one empty

another containing a few more sips

casually lying omega on the side table

music system stuck with a track

naked bodies curled together

eyes a little puffy for lack of sleep

lips smiling kissing each other

welcoming love

with a beautiful morning

to repeat last night’s experience

readying to make love

one more time

wish.. I really wish

Journey of the Zombies

Journey of the Zombies

silenced from the sight of bloodshed

blasting bombs, the sound of the guns

screaming people running for their lives

houses on fire, broken, wounded

loosing the strength, the buildings falling

silenced from the wounds of the city

the city of war, dying a swift death

thousands dead, lying on the roads

and those who survived

turning to become zombies

starting a journey slow & gruesome

for them nothing remained

but to live their lives in utter agony

silenced, never saying a word

asking thmeselves, why didn’t they also die

why a few of them had survived

survived, to live their death 

every coming moment of their lives

Being Dumb to Happiness

Being Dumb to Happiness

chasing dreams

chasing coins

chasing comforts

chasing fame

chasing what’s not mine

chasing what others hold

chasing greedily

chasing blindly

becoming blind to what I own

not chasing a smile

not chasing the beauty

not chasing the values

not chasing peace

being dumb to happiness

the true essence of life

Desire to be Reborn

I need to wash away the dust in my eyes

It made my vision blurred

I couldn’t see the truth

I need to cleanse my thoughts of evil

My cravings, my desires

How greed filled me, empowered me

I need to run away from the shadows of the ghosts

Dark and dull filling in the air

I need the sun to swallow the clouds

That were cold, heartless & gloomy

Crawling their way to my heart

I need to wake up from the deep sleep

The sleep that’s turning me into what I am not

I just need to be free of all boundaries

No objections, no limitations for me

Need to witness a little magic in my soul

I just want to be pure like a child

I just desire to be reborn

Just a Human I am

Just a Human I am

I lack perfection..

make my own mistakes

I sure do have flaws

just a human I am

to the Land of Fantasy

I wish the moon to jump its way

I wish the sun to cool down for a while

I wish the stars to come a little closer

I wish to see a little magic in the sky

I wish the rainbow to change its colors

I wish the clouds to form a palace

I wish the rain to bathe us of divinity

I wish the ocean to shine too bright

I wish the birds to learn to swim

I wish the trees to walk a bit

I wish the mountains to bow for once

I wish the fish to learn to fly

all of this and much much more

a list of my wishes somehow eternal

to make them come true for even once

guess I need to travel to the world another

the world another, a world impossible

travel my way the Fantasy land

I can make the forest to dance

I can make the sun to feel shy

I can make the wind to hide

I can change the color of the moon

I can make the mountain to bow

I can make the storm to melt

I can make the rainbow turn golden

I can make your blood colorful

I can turn a demon to an angel

I can match the speed of a shooting star

I can vanish all the moon’s scars

Believe me …

I can do magic… I am an Artist

I am – the magic myself

Craving for More

Craving for More

His hands soft and gentle on her skin

treating her like the goddess of beauty

exploring her curves

exploring her deep

making her moan in pleasure

craving for more

his lips leaving kisses around her neck

his tongue mingling with hers

tasting her mouth, her sweetness

his body pressed gently against hers

feeling her warmth

consuming her pleasure

their breathing growing fast & heavy

as they become one, attached

no spaces meant, left between them

as they make love to each other

reaching the peak of pleasure

and then

lying by each other’s side

sleeping in peace

like a child


image source



she was born out of the man’s rib

her bones fragile

her muscles holding not much power

her body slender, soft not masculine

she was considered not strong but weak

she was forbidden the things men would do

often she was told to resist her desires

was laughed at for shedding tears

she was asked to stay behind the doors

was used as a piece just to provide pleasure

she was called a machine that produces children

she was being hurt, raped, got killed every moment

fools were they, for not realizing her worth

fools were they not to praise her courage

fools were they not to respect a woman

fools were they not to know of her power….

….the power to gulp the pain in silence

the power to remain calm and not get violent

the power to cross a path full of thorns

the power of love she held in her heart….

she was selfless when she loved her man

she was affectionate when she loved her children

she stood by her family each moment

how could someone ever call her weak

SHE seems to me the STRONGEST


image source



soft blue eyes with no fake lashes

lips so pink beating any gloss

smile so genuine, felt deep within

long hair kissing her shoulders softly

as I look at her, praising her beauty

I end up telling myself all the time

could anything be more stylish ever

more stylish than her simplicity

I Praised the Darkness

I Praised the Darkness

as I praised the darkness

the light shone upon my soul

as I praised the clouds

the rain cleansed my thoughts

as I praised a mother

her children started to follow me

as I praised the weak

they revealed the warrior in them

as I praised the wind

it became soothing against my skin

as I praised the ocean

it gulped all my sins

as I praised the almighty

I saw the path to selflessness

and as I praised my love

we became one soul

Un-break my Heart

Un-break my Heart

I stood in silence

witnessing my heart breaking 

pieces falling to the ground

like a broken glass

spilling my blood all around…

I tried to gather them all

like a puzzle, I struggled to put them together

it pained as I couldn’t find a way

just couldn’t bring them to my heart’s shape

even after countless attempts – I failed… I failed

now I am here

I am here to ask you for the key

to help me, Un-break my heart

to make it whole once again

not Alone in the Universe

not Alone in the Universe

under the blanket of a million stars

lying on the grass, looking up in the sky

watching the unstopping twinkling

leaving a shiny reflection in my eyes

filling my soul with contentment

assuring me of the presence of someone

out there watching over a little tiny me

releasing energy enormous

telling tales of their existence

confirming openly

we sure are not alone in this universe so massive

I Rule You

I Rule You


I am deep within your soul

hiding, beating every moment

I was given the job not just to keep you alive

but to make you live

I feel all your emotions, be it pain or joy

I carry inspiration, I make you aspire

I bring that smile on your face

I bring those tears to your eyes

I ask you to be lonely at times

sometimes, I give you wings to fly

I make you powerful, I fill you with enthusiasm

I tell you to be gentle

I make you fall in love

you never see me

I am still beating in you

I am your tiny heart

I rule you

I am beyond Happiness

I am beyond Happiness

I sing – the silence in me

I need no joy to feel complete

I am beyond happiness

the light of hope fading

I am here still determined

fighting the black hole



Never too Late

Never too Late

whether you tried, or you didn’t

are you a child, a teenager or an adult

did you fail or succeed 

whether you are smiling or shedding tears today

it’s never too late my dear

to start afresh

the world may have gone much ahead

you may be struggling to match the pace

you may or may not win this race

but it’s never too late my dear

it’s never too late

they may make fun, they may laugh at you

they may enjoy to see you struggling

they are naive, too foolish to know your worth

must you never loose your charm

their foolishness doesn’t deserve your time

you must never give up to start afresh

for it’s never too late my dear

it’s never too late

Dreams Dramatic

Dreams Dramatic

Dreams, many dreams

all of them – caged in a jar

dreams of heaven and those of hell

dreams of passion and those of common

dreams of lust and those of attraction

dreams of desires and those of hatefulness

dreams of the hills and those the depth of the ocean

dreams of rising and those of many falls

dreams of laughing and those of many screams

dreams of the ghosts and those of the fairies

dreams of the kings and many of their slaves

dreams of the children and of the wrinkled people

dreams of the birds and those in the wild

dreams for a reason and sometimes for no reason

giving a chill, sometimes so pleasurable

mysterious how they are, revealing much at sometimes

making one go crazy – dreams dramatic

A Society so Empty

A Society so Empty

Living in a world

With no compassion

People, with guns in their hands

Their minds full of disgust

Hatred, overflowing

Their eyes, ready to cheat

Everyone who could be cheated

Their words cruel, hurtful

As they open their mouth to speak

Their brains so full of greed

Wanting enormous power

Their mindset inhuman

Not allowing others to make any choices

Breeding a generation like their own

Their children following their path

Not realizing, their attitude

Becoming poisonous


A society so Empty

That’s never to flourish

But to die

A painful death


To fill the emptiness

With nothing


dead bodies all around

For a Little Happiness

For a Little Happiness

I chose silence over scream

gathered all pain in my heart

surprised I was to see its potential

how much more could it absorb

I was scared, yes I was

soon the day shall arrive

this heart of mine shall explode 

releasing uncountable tears

poor pretty heart

sure belongs to a brand rare and rich

consuming stabs of fate

is still working fine

still beating in hope

for a little happiness

The Heroes

The Heroes

could you stretch
expand your scope
would you give up all your limits
for that someone in hope

could you loose
all that you got
could you put yourself to pain
to give life to the unknown
when for you
there’s nothing to gain

not for love
for no emotions
could you just do it 
to hold erosion

the secret lies
in what you decide
a few to say “Yes”
rest all shall watch in silence
to witness
how really are the heroes made

A Girl’s fear of the Girl’s thing

A Girl’s fear of the Girl’s thing

She felt the hesitance in her daughter’s words

as she spoke to her softly

“Mommy, can I ask you about a secret

my friend at school told me of it yesterday

the daughter’s hesitance made mom, worry a little

she asked her to let her know of her secret

the daughter went ahead asked mom, about a girls periods 

what would it mean, how would it feel

when will she start with it, she wanted to know

Mother could sense daughter’s fear as she spoke

to know of the girl’s thing had given her a blow

Mother decided to soothe her child a little

told her it wasn’t a big deal, it was only natural

yes, she still may have a couple of more years

Mother promised to prepare her before she would start

an important thing she told her to make her feel easy

never to be shy, or be ashamed of it

it’s a fact biological and the world knows it all

must she take pride to be a smart girl

Mother was relieved to see her daughter’s relief

as she hugged her & told her, she now felt better

there was now courage, a little strength in her speech

she spoke now confidently, without any fear

Mother made the daughter to promise her one more thing

never would she hesitate to come to her

for any such questions she ever may have

Yes, the mother is preparing her girl to be bold

She takes pride in raising her

with openness of thoughts

There surely is a Way

There surely is a Way

Is there a way

is there any way

no! there is no way

no possible way

but there must be a possible way

of million ways which are not the way

there must be just one, atleast one way

that one way which is beyond special 

that one way which will make it all possible


I am not just gonna sit back and watch

I am gonna go ahead with that one way

and prove to myself

that having No Way at all

is not my way

it was never my way

In a Gleaming Coffin

In a Gleaming Coffin

forbidden of happiness 

each moment of her life

today, she lay in her own space

a space too packed, with her lifeless body

she now lay in a gleaming coffin..

only the angels now know

 of her pain

for them

to hurt me too deep

juggling in my mind

going up

coming down

sure, I am screwed

do I laugh

do I cry

my powerlessness

to decide

should I tell her

or hide my secrets

for a little more time


juggling in my mind!!

The Door was False

The Door was False

that door was false

I was told all my life

it was the door to the heaven

today, my soul leaves my frame

just to prove to me

heavens have no doors


the door was false

Passion of a Child

Passion of a Child

I wonder sometimes of the passion of a child

how they find glory in the simplest of the things

how they could smile for no reason at all

their hearts so kind unaware of the hatred

their bodies so soft yet so energetic

never they would fail to find a reason to laugh

innocence unmatched teaching lessons to many

finding their joy in catching butterflies

their eyes so beautiful not to see the rich or poor

all they got is love in store for all

dreaming of the mountains and the waterfalls

flying high in the sky with no wings at all

how vulnerable yet the most powerful 

I wonder sometimes of the passion of a child

how they are passionate about the real thing

just Happiness

and nothing else

My Best Friend’s Wedding

My Best Friend’s Wedding

all dressed up for the wedding

I sat right next to the bride

the storm inside of me growing 

trying to find its way through my eyes

my beautiful dress somehow colorless to me

golden necklace made me breathless

sitting in the crowd today

I learnt how lonely could I become

my friend, the bride glowing with shine

the groom’s love for her made her divine

she asked me many times if I was O.K.

she somehow sensed my gloominess

after all we were the best of friends

I forced myself to hide my tears

even though my life was about to become dark and dull

I still couldn’t afford to let her down

I had promised myself never to reveal

that I was in love with the one

she was about to marry


image source

Allow Me.. Would you?

Allow Me.. Would you?

Let me wish you a smile today

Let me urge you to be your stronger self

Let me remind you of your beautiful dreams

Let me ask you to go grab your will

Let me be your friend today

Let me be your angel my friend

Let me bring a little happiness to you

Allow me my dear.. Would you?

Politics sucking on Humanity

Politics sucking on Humanity

09The 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.

Desert’s Love – each Soul to learn from

Desert’s Love – each Soul to learn from

I give in, to the burning flames

for my love, to the sun 

I burn like the fire myself

show my sins the way to the ashes

I cleanse my soul everyday

I take birth, fresh like a child

but this is heart of mine so innocent 

it loves the Moon, with a passion no less

it chooses to cool, to the serenity of the night

peacefully, I embrace the silver light

the grains of my sand calm and soothing

offering my love complete

this selfless love so pure of mine

leaving a message bright and bold

a Desert I am, from me could they learn

the meaning of being ADAPTABLE

O Death.. Hold Me

O Death.. Hold Me

she closed her eyes

for the pain was overbearing

she let it fall through her tears

but the salt was not enough

it could only dissolve a little

she could envisage for its heaviness

the pain was never going to abandon her

it was only to grow

piercing her deeper

in the days to come

in the years to pass

till death eventually

shall honor her

her peace

The Power of Words

The Power of Words

words inspire
words conspire
they can make one win
they can make one sin
words can hurt
words can heal
they can mend
they can break
love, they can contain
they dominate

potential of words is beyond compare
let’s choose our words with care

let’s bring a smile to someone’s face
let’s make this world a meaningful place

Journey of the Zombies

Journey of the Zombies

silenced from the sight of bloodshed

blasting bombs, the sound of the guns

screaming people running for their lives

houses on fire, broken, wounded

loosing the strength, the buildings falling

silenced from the wounds of the city

the city of war, dying a swift death

thousands dead, lying on the roads

and those who survived

turning to become zombies

starting a journey slow & gruesome

for them nothing remained

but to live their lives in utter agony

silenced, never saying a word

asking thmeselves, why didn’t they also die

why a few of them had survived

survived, to live their death 

every coming moment of their lives

image source

did I ?

did  I ?

did I plan to suffer

no I didn’t

did I make friends with pain

no I didn’t

did I tell my eyes to cry

no I didn’t

did I ask you to be mine

yes, I did

& you said ‘No’

Your Sweetness – Unpredictable

Your 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

The Ice & the Fire

The Ice & the Fire

the Ice & the Fire together

strong yet helpless – against each other

both confused – unable to decide

whether to cool or to burn the other

both in love

ready to give in

to give up their power

praying to the almighty

to take away

their extremism

it’s amazing how you drive me to write

it’s beautiful how you lift me to strive

how you fill me with emotions endless

with your love, your thoughtful comments

the way you perceive my poems, the thoughts behind them

makes me inspire to bring more to you

every hour, every minute

how I think to bring a smile to your face

imagining you reading me, gives me a special place

I wonder would I be here without you all

could I have ever done it, without touching your hearts

this story, this journey through the world of blogging

how I feel so related, how you make me feel special

my dearest followers, my dedicated readers

today, let me reveal a secret

mySestina not just mine anymore

mySestina truly now is yourSestina

Sweetness to the Salt

Sweetness to the Salt

warmth of the gold rays kissed the snow

woke up from its sleep, the snow witnessed the glow

with a smile gentle, it started to melt

ready for a journey of thousands of miles

falling from the height it turned into a waterfall

fresh so white so flawless

caressed the earth, so it became a river

rushing, splashing, making love to the ground

making its own path to travel

spreading prosperity to the villages on its way

leading with courage, crossing the hurdles

celebrating life, giving life to many

not knowing how to stop

never wanting to rest even a bit

speeding to reach her beloved so waiting

knowing, of loosing her sweetness to the salt

the river so eager 

to be dissolved in the ocean

my Secret of my Share

my Secret of my Share

my share of the sky

with more of heat, than the rainbow

my share of the rain

with more of shivers, than those dances

my share of the wind

with more of storms, than the cool breeze

my share of the clouds

with more of dullness, than its pretty colors

my share of the taste of life

with more of sour, than the sweet

my share of emotions

with more of tears, than those heartfelt giggles

and my share of YOU my dear

with more of emptiness, than a little of your love

my Secret of my Share ??

I chose to live, the little I had

than to cry for the more, that wasn’t mine

You make me ….. ME

You make me ….. ME

you make me think

you make me smile

you make me breathe

you make me cry

you make me run

you make me stop

you make me happy

you make me sad

you make me jump

you make me freeze

you make me dream

you make me sleep

you make me rise

you make me fall

you make me grow

you make me tall

you make me hide

you make me reveal

you make me, you break me

you make me hollow

you make me complete

would I be me without you ever

you make me… ME

if only my Love… if only

if only my Love… if only

If only you had caressed my face softly

if only you had held my hand

if only you had kissed me gently

things would have been different today

if only you had a small corner for me

in your heart, if only you had allowed me to stay

if only you could see my invisible tears

things would have been different today

if only you hadn’t abandoned me in pain

if only you could hear my silent screams

if only you had offered me yourself

things would have been different today

if only you had understood my song

I wouldn’t be writing these words of pain

I would be singing my poems of joy

in your arms I would have been enjoying

if only my love.. if only

The Wrong Train

The Wrong Train

lost in his thoughts, he couldn’t think much that morning

lost in his thoughts, he caught the wrong train

still lost in his thoughts, he took a vacant seat

lost in his thoughts, he didn’t see people around

lost in his thoughts, he didn’t know where to get down

lost in his thoughts, didn’t hear the baby crying next to him

lost in his thoughts, he didn’t notice something ticking under his seat

in a moment, a severe explosion hit the train

the man suddenly, woke up from his thoughts


 is now lost

in the ashes of the bomb blast

remember? he caught the wrong train

while being lost in his thoughts

Realize your Worth

Realize your Worth

praise like a man wise, praise all good – that’s worth

stay innocent, to match the innocence of a child

roam carefree about, like the clouds move in the wind

make your inner self glow, like the glow of the sun

let the fire swallow all the sin, that’s burning your good self

speak like a man so gentle, with a heart that’s kind to all

realize your worth my dear, you are worthy of the best

The Voyage Eternal

The Voyage Eternal

two hands, caged in a circle

walking their own pace

one seem smaller, a little heavier

the other seem energetic, a little younger

meeting each other every hour

set on a voyage that’s never to end

a voyage to decide the fate of everything else

a voyage that needs no train, no aeroplane

a voyage to birth voyages many more

it’s the voyage ultimate

the voyage of a clock

the voyage of time

Birds from Heaven

Birds from Heaven

music of the morning

kissed the breeze

soft warm rays of the sun

woke up the birds

flowers bloomed

to the songs being sung

branch of the trees

were being danced upon

pigeons, sparrows,

there were humming birds

making merry

bringing life to the earth

a magical sight

for my eyes to witness

I wondered as I stood in my balcony

how could they hold such power divine

to make me feel so pure, pious

would be unjust to call them stray

they surely were the birds from heaven

Spreading the Dark at the Speed of Light

Spreading the Dark at the Speed of Light

aren’t we now just numbers

numbers that’s increasing

aren’t we now just more

more humans & no Humanity

aren’t we now just blind

our vision getting fragile

incapable to consume the reality

aren’t we just hurting all

all that of our own kind

and the rest

aren’t we losing the connection

the power of emotion

aren’t we speeding at the pace of light  

to spread the darkness

aren’t we not just fed up

fed up of wars

fed up of politics

fed up of crime

aren’t we?

Color of his blood

Color of his blood

his blood not red, all the time

it’s green when he’s imagining the farms

it’s blue when he swims freely in the ocean

it’s yellow when he bows to the sun

it’s silver when he silently praises the moon

it’s even black when he is hurt in a war

for he is not a man too common 

he has an elegant way to him

he is way beyond special

he is – an artist

he can change

the color of his blood

Your Silence speaks to Me, Better than your Words

Your Silence speaks to Me, Better than your Words

when you have no words to express

when you simply choose to stay shut

when you have no idea what to say

your silence, speaks to me better than your words

when you are done talking, when you are tired

when you don’t want to explain – your pain, your desire

when you simply put your finger on your lips

your silence, speaks to me better than your words

when you don’t scream, still your eyes are teary

when you are glued to your desk for hours, writing

when you end up finishing the the ink in that ink pot

your silence, speaks to me better than your words

Heaven beyond the Clouds

Heaven beyond the Clouds

if all souls on the earth are kind

if all souls have love in store

if there is compassion flowing all around

if only there is peace at all times

there’s contentment in all the hearts

if only we would crave to make the other smile

if only we cross our limits to help the one in need

if only we could make it all possible

we wouldn’t need that day and any later

the heaven beyond the clouds

for our heaven then be under our feet

on the ground

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


image source

I swallowed the Silence

I swallowed the Silence

I swallowed the silence

make it stay in my throat

to make my tongue worthless

to not let it utter a word

no matter how much

I have to go through

no matter how much

they make me suffer

I shall never even whisper

of my pain, my sufferings

for I just want to be me

I only want Me – to be with Me

when my eyes shed tears

in the dark

isn’t God within us all

isn’t God within us all

I am not, what I thought I were

I am much more

I am a creation of the almighty

emotions flow through me

lovely eyes to see the beauty around

a heart that beats for love

kindness, affection, peace 

I hold them within me

I smile to bring smiles to many

I am brave enough to face the curse

I have the will to defeat the evil

I embrace life, I embrace love

I am special, I am a creation of the almighty

maybe, I am the almighty myself

isn’t God within us all
