Nothing

Nothing!!

There’s nothing for you here-

Just a fallow heath,

A skeleton of a tree,

A dried well,

A barren womb,

A cold heartless heart,

A soulless being.

There’s nothing here!!

Nothing for you to find.

Nothing!!

Lost

I have forgotten how it feels like to be loved…

I have forgotten the feel of a soft touch..

Fingers caressing the folds of my skin..

Sensuous kisses travelling from the lips

To the nape of my neck and further below..

The tender look which needed not words

And your eyes which said I was your world…

Yes, I’ve forgotten them all, forgotten how they felt like…

No they are no more there and never more will be..

I have lost you, I have lost your love.

Beneath My Wings

I held you in the hollows of my arms

Lifting and supporting you

As you cringed further below

Trying to hide from the eyes

That you once thought adored you.

Insinuating eyes that now follow you

Into every nook and bend

Until you feel cornered

And overpowered by it’s presence.

No the eyes are not there now

But you are overwhelmed with guilt

Which makes you see them everywhere.

My attempts to comfort you are all in vain

Yet I give not up, for you are mine

And mine you’ll always be

I’ll forever protect you

And catch you from falling further.

You are safe beneath my wings.

Walk on

When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark

At the end of a storm
There’s a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark

Walk on through the wind
Walk on through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown

Walk on, walk on
With hope in your heart

 

The poem is not mine. Sharing it cause I loved it

My Dada Baby

I wake up to the sound of your voice

Every morning, prepare your feed and

Fall asleep again with your arms

Wrapped around me and your breath

Warm against my cheek.

You open your big round eyes and say,

Amma, I’ll stay with you the whole day,

Please don’t go to work,

Please don’t send me to school today.

My heart pains to part with you

Even if it’s just for a while to school.

When I see your big round eyes swell

With tears and big droplets fall on your cheeks.

But I get to hug you again soon enough

And to hear your sweet voice say

Amma, I’ll stay with you the whole day.

We hug, we laugh, we roll, we eat,

We watch cartoons together,

We play with little cars, your mini coopers,

Your audi, JCB, and aeroplanes and bikes,

And spend the rest of the day leisurely

In each other’s company.

Your expression of love touches me deeply,

And my love for you knows no bounds,

My boy, my Dada Baby, as you call yourself,

You’re the best gift that God has bestowed upon me.

The Reality of Life

Life isn’t a fairy tale,
Where people fall in love
And live happily ever after.
But life is an affliction,
A painful depressant, a bitter pill,
Which all have to swallow-
Brings you wretchedness and engulfs your sanity.

I was young, quite young
Still living in a world of dreams
When suddenly my mind mushroomed
From a world of fairy tales
To a world of realities so corrosive.
Life had given me much
But life took them all away in an instant.

Then again came my prince or so I thought
Who would be my happy place.
But he found greener grass, in reality brown,
Callously he stabbed my heart,
Twisted and turned the knife
Till it bled the life out of me.

Still I waited bleeding red,
Drops of blood oozing out of my heart.
Still he juggled with it,
Till the juggling couldn’t be stopped
And he got trapped in his own artifice
Which became a web,
He couldn’t crawl out of.

Though misled for a while
That transformation was real,
I eventually learnt the hard way
What’s crooked can never be straight.
They say when you want something,
The whole world conspires to get it to you.
But I beg to differ with you Coelho,
What’s not meant to be will never be.

Worth Living

Toys strewn floors,

Cars here, cars there,

Little cars everywhere.

Napkins here, chocolates there,

Colouring books, paper planes,

Building blocks, kinder joy toys,

Little crumbs of cookies everywhere.

Smell of lotions, baby powders,

Doraemon on tv, or sometimes Shinchan.

Piled up laundry, piled up books,

Scribbled bedsheets, doodled walls.

Little feet tapping, running here and there,

Sound of laughter echoes everywhere.

Voices calling Amma, all at once.

Pecks of kisses, showering on me

From little lips, now and then.

Little arms hugging me and tugging me,

They make my day- a day worth living,

Everyday.
