Words do matter.

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent
about things that matter~ martin luther king
Words heal..
Words reassure..
Words express...

#9 Everlasting shadows

(dedicated to all my friends)

Our paths collided we met
That time was amazing, not to forget
Friends, the memories you gifted
Are the hardest things to live with

I miss you when I have chips
I miss you when I take cold drink sips
I miss the class we shared
I miss the days we didn’t cared

Together we sang songs for long
Now they seem lifeless to sing alone
Small fights and big smiles
Criticizing like small kids for a while

Teasing for even a smile of a guy
Wiping each other’s tears when they cry
Being the counselor for the one depressed
Flattering teachers to make them impressed

All the fun restricted to last bench
Attacking canteen in break, for lunch
Together we played ‘truth or dare’
Shouting in midst “that’s not fair”

Standing with hands up till teacher felt mercy
Gossiping about any current hearsay
Walking carefree with broad smile
Commenting on every step and style

Tons of crushes, hiding of secrets
Studying till late nights
Those days were the best
When life only meant- rest

When only thing broken were pens
When throwing PJs was a fun
When goodbyes meant only till tomorrow
Memories of those days is part of sorrow

I wish to go back to that time
When falling tears also meant “I am fine”
Sometimes I sniff while I remember those days
When life was a beauty in every way…

#8 Vale of sorrow

Once upon time, life was smooth
Then one day I collided with the truth
Something that left me stiff
Like I was hanging on a cliff

I felt my heartbeat stopped
I felt my heart being chopped
Numbness took over my mind
Senses went dead, I felt deaf and blind

All the past repeated as flash back
All the colors of life turned black
All my sweet dreams suddenly turned nightmare
No one to console and say “I am always there”

I found myself alone in crowd
In life’s journey I met with thousands frauds
Every relation ended with a betray
Many friends came but no one to stay

Tears roll down my cheeks without pause
To express myself I went short of words
I started fearing my own faith
I discovered my new personality traits

All I know about me is I am surviving yet
Unaware of its purpose and eyes go wet
No hope, no belief to keep me upright
I quitted before the beginning of fight

I know it’s ridiculous but can’t go on
It’s much difficult to live being alone
Things went wrong beyond my expectation
I am weak to face this situation

I don’t want anyone to console
Am not prepared for a betray or fall
Leave me alone lemme explore
Why I am living and what for...?

#7 Unrequited

I would never lose you, 
For you ain't a battle to compete.
I might never win you, 
For I know I got too many imperfections.
I can't let you go, 
For you rule my mind every second.
I can't hold you forever, 
For i never owned you to do.
I might never remember you, 
For we made no memories.
I might never forget you, 
For I exist to think about you.
I don't love you for things you say, 
For everything remained unsaid.
I don't love you for the way you made me feel, 
For you kept your distance forever.
I won't stop you when you turn to leave, 
For I have no rights to do.
Unconditional unreciprocated...
Maybe it was meant to be.

#6 Dream world

Rains of love, fragrance of care
No hatred or enemy to be there
Where sun will shine just for a while
And moon will light up with a smile
A home made of feelings, which are true
In which only two people live, me and you
Our names engraved on the main door
Happiness spread all over, from roof to floor
Together we stay all the times
Our world should always be so fine
No worries, no hurries, when you are along
Every moment, life will play a wonderful song
The dream world I made, is built around you
Nothing will be same if made without you
Of this world, of this dream, life is you
Even I exist, it’s because of you
It feels so beautiful when I am holding your hand
I wish journey of life should never end…

#5 A girl

(Contribution for the cause- Save the girl child!)

We born as a father’s dream
Mothers hope, a new lights beam
Sibling’s friend and secret holder
Advisor and guide as we grow older
Our tolerance is tested at every step
Our ways are full of thorns and whips
Victims of several shameful incidents
We are treated like worthless residents
We fear getting out after dusk
In every field we are separated like husk
They are unaware we have the power
To move mountains and stop rivers any hour
We have dived in marina trench, invaded space
Scaled Mount Everest, won every race
We are worshipped as goddess
Our presence is counted as priceless
Whole humanity took birth from our womb
Now this humanity us pushing us to doom
Murdering us will affect your fate, Beware

#4 Nothing but a thought.

Not a poem, not a verse... just a random thought.

Smoke from the Anmol candles factory after the fire was extinguished- Hindustan times. 31 October, 2010.

I saw the burning 
I saw the loss
I saw my dreams on fire

I saw them mourning
I saw them weep
It killed my all desires

Slowly steadily, over the years
We made our small world
One click- it's a history

Maybe it was meant to be
Maybe it's the wish of destiny
Fate, well it's a mystery

Maybe not now
Maybe not yet
But soon enough

We will grow
We will rise
We will create a new ancestry.

#3 Love isn't the thing I do

Love isn't the thing i do
Just don't presume that i ever loved you...
If i am around i don't stare at you
My heartbeat stays stable whatever you do...

My cheeks don't flush when you smile
You aren't in my fantasy even for a while...
I don't imagine you cuddling on my bed
There is everything but you in my head...

Your image is far from what i dream
I know its not love even if it seems...
My heart doesn't ache when you move far
There is nothing that i relate to be "our"...

your face never appeared when i shut my eyes
Nor i felt you beside when i rise...
I never had any feelings for you
Don't you dare imagine that i ever loved you...

Neither i did, nor i'll ever do
Love is certainly not the thing i do... 

#2 Where heaven lies...

(Dedicated to mom-dad, people who mean more than anyone else.)

They spent their life in nourishing me
Now it’s my turn to pay the fee
I’ll turn all their sorrows in smile
I won’t let them feel lost for a while
Every happiness will be kissing their feet
In my life, they own the highest seat
To me my parents mean before god
I am grateful to them for what I ever got
A place where they’ll get the deserved respect
Where they’ll get whatever they aspect
They’ll no more suffer any ruse
I won’t let them lose
I’ll serve them till I am alive
Its nothing, I owe them my life
A life is worth living only with an aim
My aim is to earn my parents’ fame
I’ll live upon their dreams
I’ll flood their lives with happiness streams
They deserve even more then that
and I won’t ever take my words back…

#1 Real image of my soul

Giggling all the time
Always being so fine;
No one saw my true face
Since I show its no trace;
Don’t go by my smile, it can be fake
My life is a mystery as a deep lake;
Deep inside there lies a broken heart
That still has scratches made by some in past;
So true was my love and care
But they did hurt me with their betray;
All I need was loyalty in relation
Instead I died before reaching my destination;
One fine day I hope they'll come back
May be that day I may not feel their lack;
Now I lie in this silent world with all the manly desires
Dreams are not always future reality; they'll burn in cruel world’s fire;
With every second the situation is becoming unbearable
But I know it would end with life making it miserable;
The smile is not always the sign of happiness
Sometime it’s used to hide the real thing;
It’s a secret; don't reveal it to the foul
Yes, this is the real image of my soul...
