You resented me for being a writer,
You wanted nothing to do with me,
You judged me highly for my words!

But you forgot,
Words are my weapons,
And I can scar you with it.
Try as you might,
To break free,
I've caged you,
In these verses...
As a punishment...
For shattering the heart,
OF A WRITER...!

Now.. Your name, as the title of my poetry,
And mine, as the author,
Will haunt you forever!

And at last,
I finally give up!
My innocent love lost, against the indifference of your heart!
Ohh! It's so cold,

Midnight Struggle

The long lonely night,
Heard my heart's plight,
And somewhere near the dawn,
We both sat and cried...

And that's how you see,
The remnants of my love,
The glittering dewdrops,
In the morning sunlight...

Shining through your window,
They tell you of my fight,
How was my final struggle,
Now that my voice is quiet...

Some day,
When my mind is numb,
My pen, still..
And words leave me,
I want you to listen,
The rhythm of my heartbeats,
For there will always be present,
A sonnet for your ears...

THE PLIGHT OF BEING A WOMAN

I want to tell a tale,
So old it's not new...
Belonging to the fairer sex,
I can trust boys,
Only a few...
The one's predecided,
By the society...
A bunch of males,
Of whose I'm a property...
Father,
Brother,
Husband,
Son...
These are my protectors,
My shield,
My weapon...
But pray tell me what,
Am I supposed to do...
When these relations,
Show a different hue...
When my father in rage,
Hits me black and blue...
When the brother's care,
In ignorance,
Out of the window flew...
When my husband,
Treats me like a furniture,
Unless he wants to be satisfied...
When my son,
Throws me out of the house,
When he finds his bride...
When you teach me,
How to be a princess,...

LOVE STORY

I am a dreamer,
And my every dream,
Starts and ends with you,
Because that's where you exist,
In my fantasy,
Absent,
From my reality,
And with each passing day,
My hope lessens,
Of holding you,
Loving you,
And feeling it reciprocated.

I longed for a love story,
And you gave me one,
A one sided love,
A tragic story...

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF

Every time I sat with a blank paper in front of me,
Trying to pour out the chaos of words wandering in my mind,
I single thought stilled my pen..

Will they like what they read...?

To this death, died many a poetries..
Until the day I realised,
When my head is a raging storm,
And I'm struggling to get a grip,
All I see is, myself!
Alone!
Battling!
Conquering!
Existing!

And today when I seal yet another diary,
I look at my pen and paper,
Now the thought which comes to my mind is:
You never cease to please me...

Writing for myself was the best decision I made...

He knows..
With every word he utters,
He wounds my soul,
Piercing my being with shards of remarks..

And I transform my pain,
Into poetry..
Each scar forms a stanza,
My agonies are its feel..

He knows I write my best,
When in grief..

And so,
Time and again,
He kills the lover in me,
To keep the writer alive..

Quietude

The ink has dried,
The pages worn,
Words forgotten,
Feelings gone,
Thoughts in bits,
Tattered and torn,
The hand won't move,
Sentences, stillborn.
An author's curse,
Pricks like a thorn,
A Writer's block,
Is what I mourn.

The Perfect Verse

Every night while thinking about her, he would compose paragraphs of feelings, he longs to proclaim.
But, words betray him when she's around.
Monosyllables become his lifesaver.

He may be an ordinary stanza, of a forgettable poem to her.
But, she was a poetry that rhymed best with his heartbeat.
He knew she would be his bestseller.

What I Own

Birth given by mother,
Name given by father,
Love given by friends,
Fame given by fans,
There's nothing of my own,
Except the sorrows I've borne,
The scars that I wear,
Are the remnants of my fear,
The battles that I've won,
Against my own demon,
These are my only wealth,
A gift from the shadows I've dealt...

The Last Wish

In a distant morrow,
When I'm sans flesh and blood,
Just a blurred memory,
A paperback,
In an ancient place,
Upon a bookshelf,
I want an amateur, to pick me up,
Blow off the dust,
Befriend me through my words,
And get the much needed initiation and courage,
To hold the pen, make her mark,
And imprint the musings of her soul on paper..

The Sands Of Time

Moments..
Good and bad,
Happy and sad,
Are keepsakes..

Of faraway yesterdays,
That were spent long ago,
In making memories,
Living life,
Struggling between one heartbeat to another,
Or just existing..

They are memoirs soaked in our blood and inscribed on our hearts for eternity..

Representing our self made heaven and hell..

Dear mother,
If I cry my whole life,
Will it ensure my people will be happy in the future?
If I starve myself to death,
Will it ensure my countrymen will get food to eat?
Will my frightened eyes and soul,
Ensure my people a fearless tomorrow?
Ma, if I don't sleep at all,
In return will my brothers get peaceful slumber?
Will my burning body and dreams,
Be the final destruction you and the people ever witness?

Dear Mother,
I am willing to sacrifice myself,
If it guarantees a safe and joyous ever after....

While trying to appease the world,
I changed pieces of me,
To fit the mould of their liking,
The reality I couldn't see.

With every change I went through,
They would find new fault,
And this self deprecating process,
Went on and on without halt.

When I finally came to my senses,
I realised my devilry,
With my blood on my own hands,
I had become my biggest enemy...!
