I don't want to have words
But that doesn't mean,
That I don't want to be near.
Arguments I don't want to hear,
But your coos and soft talks
Are exactly what, I need to be around.
I've had enough of hate,
I'm sorry I've been a reason,
For some of your pain.
Talking isn't going to help
What we need to be doing,
Is going on long, breezy hikes.
Be in the company of each other
Cuddled in a warm embrace, as we watch,
The sun go down, together.
I want to show you,
How immensely we've grown,
To Love Each Other.
Baby, I'll forgive all of your mistakes
And hope, you'll forget all of mine.
You and I, We're Meant To Be Together.
Give us the chance we deserve,
I'm sure we'll enjoy great hap...
She gave her life up
In order to preserve
The dignity and sanctity
Of the title she held.
Courage and will power
That's what is required
In order to hold
Your head up high.
Your life, you don't have to set ablaze,
Just start of by killing something,
Anything, that shouldn't exist within.
Light a fire, stay close to the flames
Let the heat and light
Burn away the darkness
And all of the heart ache.
Devote yourself to a higher calling
Constantly take steps,
To achieve your aim.
In the end, you'll find yourself,
To be a better man,
Than when you began.
In our lives, we'll probably never face a situation. As dire as the one Rani Padmavati had to contend with.
But we can learn fr...
I understand it's not been easy
Every part of you, I'm sure is hurting
But please, don't give up
Don't stop trying, keep at it!
Fight your hardest,
Everyone's eyes are prying.
They want you to succeed,
You'll get their help,
You just need to ask for it.
The disease eats you up from within
Fight hard to be, who you've always been.
Just accept the struggle and work hard
To get back to who you were,
Healthy and strong, built like an ox.
Don't give up now, you've come too far
Don't give up now, we're all here
Don't give up now, we love you lots.
Around this time, a lot of complaints,
A lot of pain, keeps disturbing her.
She vents to me, and yells at me
Hey pad soaks up, the last bit of her period.
During her time of the month
The only emotion that's constant
Is that feeling of discomfort.
She's rude to me at times
Mood swings make her unsure
That's when I step into the picture.
A storm is raging strong,
I step into the eye of it all.
Run a few errands,
Take some stress off.
In a tight embrace you'll find the both of us,
Tell her, I understand she's feeling uncomfortable.
I love you, I'll stick around or I'll leave if you want.
Your wish is my command
Your desires I'll fulfill,
Thinking they originated,
Brush off the insults
Push past the silence
Make a sincere effort
To give all of yourself.
After being ignored
After being dismissed
I still stuck around
I knew I was being judged
By her and by friends
Who saw all of the
Steps that I'd take.
And past mistakes
Made me understand,
Thoughts and judgements
Change every day.
Love however, remains constant,
Love and laying myself bare,
It's the reason we're together today,
Despite the blunders of yesterday.
Light hearted pranks are fun
But don't go playing
Games with my heart
I'm telling you who I am
Because there's way too much ,
Love that resides inside.
Running in circles used to be fun
But now, I just want to be loved,
Need somebody, who will care.
And be the love of my life,
For the rest of my days.
You've never given me any trouble
You've always given me, only love.
You've never asked me for much
You've given me, whatever I required.
You've never judged me
You've always ensured
That I present myself
In the best possible manner.
Thanks for allowing me to be myself.
Thanks for being my best friend, LOVER :)
All I need is company
All I want is someone
I can open my heart up to.
All I need is empathy
All I want is to be heard
And not be judged by you.
All I need is love
All I want is love
All I need is to be loved
All I want is to love you.
Someday I want to climb high
High up the mountains,
That seem to touch the sky.
Be a part of a range, so large,
That I'll finally understand, how tiny I am.
In a small tent I'll stay
Where people won't tell me,
What I should wear
And how I should behave.
They won't care for my qualifications
All they'll want to see, is a smile on my face.
I'll forget about the frivolities
And focus only on
What really matters to me.
The people here, are living at an altitude,
That's higher than the height,
Of the clouds, floating in the sky.
Here, possessions don't matter,
Because the sole focus is happiness
And being satisfied with what you have.
For millennia, enlightened men
Have made the mo...
Always got an eye on the future
Making sure I'm on the right path
So that I'll be a successful man, one day.
Saving every rupee I can
To accumulate enough
So eventually, I'll be able,
To afford a nice place.
Reaching out and making contact
With people I've fallen out of touch with
So I'll have a vibrant circle of friends.
Somewhere along the line, I realise
I've forgotten about the present moment
Today I take a pledge, I will work
Towards the goals I've set.
But I won't deny myself
Of the pleasures life offers
SO, I will be sure,
To have some fun today!!!
I walk with my head held high,
As the sun rises from below me
I'm not afraid of my past
The night lies behind.
I don't care, if you insult me
Feel free to make fun of me
Because you only see the darkness
In the shadow, my form is casting.
But very soon, it'll be noon
And in the gleaming sun,
I will be walking.
My Shadow will be small,
As I will be stand tall.
My past won't matter then,
I'll be over it, I will be shining.
There's this large wall up ahead,
Its too large to scale, I'm afraid.
I don't want to be here,
I just want to get ahead.
My mind is racing,
My fears run deep.
I can't see what's beyond,
I've lost the path I was on.
After a while of fighting with myself,
Of desperately trying to move forward.
I say to myself, no matter what happens,
I'll overcome the obstacle I see in front.
I free myself of old dreams,
Take my mind off downtrodden roads.
I chose a new path to go to down on,
To a region that's not obsolete or old
Wild is my spirit and my destination,
A forest filled with pine cones,
A place with tall trees and new hopes.
"A Place Where you Feel Home"
A place you come to,
After a long day.
A place where,
Your words hold weight.
A place where,
Judgements aren't made.
A place you come to
And make your problems go away.
There isn't a storm
But the wind is crazy
There isn't much breeze
The night is eerie
No matter what is happening
Nature is so very interesting.
The world puts me in a box
Tells me what I'm good at
And restricts my activity, per that.
But I'm not just a commerce graduate
Nor am I interested only in maths,
I like accounts but I'm also into prose.
I Don't Care, what the world thinks or
There's very little money in poetry
I'll do what I like, please myself too.
The world may revolve around capital
But emotions and feelings, don't die easy.
Money is essential for your well being
But pursuing your passion
Is what makes you happy.
I hope, all of you enjoy what I write
Because I really do like, the letters that you guys post here.
Cheers and Happy Holidays :)
In the cold wind I came riding
Without a jacket or a scarf
Covering my neck or my ears.
The chilly wind froze my body
But my spirit was frigid earlier too.
I found out today,
She's left me for someone else
So now I'm at home, all alone.
The fire warms my body
But my heart is frozen solid
And it won't heal anytime soon.
Cheating is very very hard to deal with especially when everyone else, all round is merry and celebrating.
So for everyone who's in a stable relationship, it's time to celebrate our partners, this festive season.
It's cold in Bangalore,
My mum asks me to wear a sweater.
She dictates an order,
And I comply with her directives.
I grab my keys,
Walk out the front door.
As I proceed towards the east,
I see many people, sleeping on the streets.
Without a layer of wool or cotton,
Harsh elements, are upon their bare skin.
I crib all day, want to own more things,
But I am truly happy,
To have the basic necessities, today.
In this season of joy and celebration
I feel truly blessed to have the basic necessities and so much more.
Close your eyes and you'll witness
The creativity that every human possess.
Each of us is just a speck
In this vast universe,
The Milky Way travels in.
Our existence is tiny
But there's a magnanimity
In every being, that is living.
The shared consciousness,
Of the seas and the trees
Exists within this body we reside in.
The Milky way speeds along
At over a million miles an hour.
The solar system is a little slower
It takes a couple hours.
In these vast cosmic spaces
A tiny planet, we call the earth is present.
On its crust, we go about our business.
Existence is vast and even though we're small
We have a purpose, for which we're here on Earth.
My home is the world
My home is where
I have a feeling of warmth
Home is an area
With an oh so cool breeze
Home is not just my house
But any place,
I fall in love with.
Travel allows me,
To have multiple places
That I now call home.
I've slipped through some cracks,
I haven't been shining vibrantly.
I've been dealing with some issues
And I need silence now.
I need to focus,
Regain my strength.
I may be down now,
But I refuse to be written off.
I'm on the floor today
But someday soon,
When I'm mighty and strong,
I'll fly, high above clouds!
Her only crime was loving him,
And he did love her too.
Till his last breath, he loved her,
He even wrote her a note,
As he lay there, bleeding on the road.
She was made to break her bangles.
The vermilion on her forehead,
Her pretty pink sarees,
Were taken away from her.
It's time we stop this stigma,
Accident victims need to be attended to.
Widows may have lost their husbands,
But they are as human as me and you.
Widows in some parts of rural India are still treated like filth. Their clothes are taken away, the sindoor on their forehead is rubbed off.
People are reluctant to attend to accident victims for the fear of being persecuted.
This needs to stop, for us to progress into...
I've fallen into a hole
It's dark all around
I'm scared and
But I know,
I won't be here long.
Because I'm a fighter
And I don't give up.
I'll climb up
I'll see the sun.
We used to be together,
But now, she's moved away.
I used to talk to her everyday,
But now, things have changed.
We used to fight over trivial issues,
But now, she's unavailable in the day.
I used to love only her,
But now, I love her husband as well.
I used to wait for her, to come home,
But now, I'm awaiting to meet,
The baby, growing in her womb.
Sister's are a real treasure
That you love always,
But value, once she's away.
He worked long hours at the mine
His nails were dirty
His jeans tattered and torn.
She had plenty of money
Wore Gucci skirts
For her nails, French Manicure.
A man who lived on the streets
Fell in love, with the woman
Who's compound had paved roads.
Her grace and poise won his heart
When she served him food,
At a soup kitchen, on Sunday.
He finished his meal,
Went up to her
And shook her hand.
Thanked her for sponsoring
And serving them,
The food that they'd had.
They fell in love with her
Because she gave them all,
Love straight from her heart.
The sky is overcast
The weather gloomy
The mind wanders aimlessly
Because things are bad
And I feel lonely.
The mind however is under my control
Unlike weather, that nature plays with.
So I tell my mind, to be less melancholic
And imagine a future, where things,
Are more to my liking.
Use the power of hope,
To climb out the pit I'm in
And be in a place,
Where things are clear and sunny!
She appeared old and frail
The last time, I went to say 'Hey!'.
But her spirit, it seems
Had NEVER AGED.
A warm smile appeared on her face,
And as always, offered me an Orange.
The sun was about to set
And her face was bathed
In a glow, orange.
An opportune moment,
It was the right time,
So I got down on one knee
And she said yes.
She never got to meet her,
But I'm glad, that she was there.
A LITTLE INSIGHT :)👇
The challenge for today was to use orange in a poem/ quote.
I began to think about the fruit, Orange and this led me on a train of thought.
Mom’s and Grandma’s are forever asking us if we have had enough to eat and make sweets on special occasions. I though of a frail o...
He saw her at a bar
And used a pickup line
She started to laugh
She asked him,
You wanna go,
Up to my room?
He said sure,
I can't keep my hands of you
But I got to go to the restroom
I'll meet you on top.
He went to the pharma
Picked up some protection
Before heading up.
It's good to have fun
But it's important to be safe
She appreciated him for that.
It's important to be healthy
Even more than having fun
When you realise this
You protect yourself.
Good to be aware. Use protection everytime.
I remember Miss Jenny,
Using the blackboard to draw shapes.
My homework was to place 100 dots
And make 50 circles in my notebook.
I used to hate it,
When I had to take down
The words written on the board.
A few years later, when,
They started to dictate sentences
That needed to go into my book.
I began to miss the board
A place, where things would stay
Until they were erased,
To make way, for more words.
A board I used to dread,
Became one, I came to crave.
Life has come a full circle
These days I use
White chalk on the blackboard,
To impart in my students
The knowledge that lies in my head.
