The rainy lunch break in the month of Jan, I wish such moments come again and again,  I remember that tense look on your face, You did not want to come out at first place, and I would have missed your pout and grace, Rain drops and breeze, Taking away your ease, hairs waving in your face, And you’re like “Oh God! No, please!” Working day at the office was your reason of such a reaction, Because I know you also enjoy the rainy action, Ask me, I get filled with joy when things like this happen, It was a magic trick that mesmerized theRead More →

I Will Miss You I’ll miss you saying hello to me!My smiling response happily I’ll miss those funny childish fightsEating cakes and sugar-free diets I’ll miss those moments of you walking by my sideNot going through the lift but taking stair-ride I’ll miss asking you to turn aroundMeeting you is like a treasure that I found You are the girl with a golden heartA heart that melts with emotions’ warmth I hated those moments when you weren’t with meThey are considered as the pain in me I’ll miss those moments when you criedYour eyes say it all it’s nothing they hide I’ll miss that tripRead More →

The Agreement Truth I wasn’t ready forHad come with full strength The slower heartbeat was tellingOur journey has come to an end Your struggle with breathingWas clearly noticeableBody getting colderIt was all fatal Holding your handsin your last momentsSmiling not cryingWas part of our agreement I was holding my tears tightYou were losing hand’s gripWait! don’t go! Not now!Not before the final goodbye kiss! I could do nothing but look at you goThe last heartbeat still echoes in my earsThat’s when our agreement ended and I was in tearsRead More →

Holding on to the Silver Lining!    I might hurt somebody if I open up completelyI have covered everything inside me, pretty neatlyDon’t scratch or try to find what I am hidingA horse with uncontrollable force I am ridingI have covered my grief with a mask, it’s smilingBut never lost hope as every dark cloud has a silver lining No matter what happens, I’ll give my meaning to lifeIt’s not something for me you should defineYou know all about me? No! so never try to judge me! You are just another face in the crowd, so please, excuse me!I am walking with a storm insideRead More →

I see a beautiful thought… I see a beautiful thought turning into realityfading from the dark into the light and clarity I see the breeze of happiness piercing the fog of stillnessa wave of chill wishing me luck and wellness I see around me light of hopeReminding me at every step, I am not alone I see no more sorrow only a beautiful paintime healed the wounds but scars remained the samereminding me not to fall in the pit of grief again I see it all, I feel the rising when I see youbut wait, I am looking closely now, there’s something you’re hiding tooRead More →

Average Jane: What do you see Joe?  Average Joe: A tree Average Jane: What do you see Joe? Poet Joe: An old natural pillar Whom leaves are serving as the void filler To cover the gap and provide dense shade Whose fate hasn’t yet decided by a blade Average Jane: Sorry, what? The Average Joe and the Poet Joe saw the same tree, but the talent of perceiving things differently separates the Poet Joe from the Average Joe. Now, some become a writer/poet after getting a professional qualification in literature and some are just God gifted amateurs (like me), who no matter what career pathRead More →
