My Reflection

From across the glass, my clone stares in my eyes Looking for all the answers that are lost somewhere There is hope, or is that an illusion? A trap that will take me to heights and then push me over! An expanse of pain settles in her eyes I know what it is; I know…

Cape Of Silence

They pelt stones at me, I am silent Calling me names, I am silent Push me down, run over my ego Punch my confidence, bruise my dreams But I wear a cape of silence They take me for granted but grant me nothing I brave all insults, it sinks deep in me I am silent…

What’s For Tomorrow?

A step forward today, two for tomorrow A pretty smile today, two for tomorrow A hearty giggle today, two for tomorrow A blissful moment today, two for tomorrow Many broken pieces today, few for tomorrow 10 negative thoughts today, few for tomorrow Hundreds of hurdles today, few for tomorrow Thousands of fears today, few for…

Stained

Love was not her cup of tea and her friends thought it to be her detached personality and brushed it off but was that it? Her hollow eyes and emotionless kisses had a story to tell or maybe she just wasn’t into him! He had to find out and so he embarked a journey into…

Shouts Of The Silence

She stands at the window for hours, no movement- no expression. A blank look on her face, she stands there but not present there. He is intrigued, “Who is the girl, why is she spaced out?”…the answer was nowhere to be found but adamant as he was, refused to let this go… He appears on…

An Eternal Wait

With love in my heart, I waited for you The road where you left me shattered Is still moist with tears I wept all the while Winds still carry my scent as they blow over Is that what got you back? For me? Blank as a white sheet you stand now With no trace of…

If I, Will You?

If I take a step forward, will you do the same? If I stretch my hand out, will you hold it firm? If I fall behind you, will you come back for me? If I lose myself to you, will you cherish me forever? Let me go on forever like this asking you questions If…

I Am That Girl

I am that girl who rides a bike And will beat guys in a race I am that girl who drinks to rejoice And will empty a bottle faster than you I am that girl who swears a ton And will burn your ears with it I am that girl who loses her shit And…

Tell Me Why

What was I when I first met you? A tortured soul, a bruised heart! Breathing through the day with pain, Drowning deeper into my sorrow… I fear what? I know not but I fear So I curl up in my restrictive shell Shying away from the bright light That reflects from your poised self From…

My Bruised Feet

For once I will walk alone On a thorny path in the dark You won’t be there to hold me I will trot without your support Where once you stood strong by me Is an expanse of emptiness and gloom I might fall down or hurt myself But bruised feet hurt less than voids!  

What It Feels?

For years you build a dream, just one Slowly with each piece it rises tall Then one day it falls flat in a pile Burning a hole in our heart, it flames There is a deathly pallor on your face Blood sucked out, leaving you pale Ever been there? Know what it feels? There is…

Life Is Good

“Life is so monotonous”, she began cribbing “From office to home, home to office, that’s my entire life”. True, there was a need for excitement but what to do? One morning she woke up too disappointed with her dreary life that skipping office for a day to ‘have fun’ seemed natural. But only if she…
