A Wait – That made time give-up…..

Many seasons passed by
Sun and moon had
Risen and fallen a thousand times
She knew, she was waiting
Waiting for all the wrong reasons

Every day, as sun readies itself to set
She would stroll on a dusty road
Surrounded by meadows over grown
Wearing a Black gown sliding on the ground
Flying gently like a dry leaf in the air
Creating rhythmic waves
She would walk barefoot,
A black thread tied on her right leg
Her foot trails, beautiful
Like a pathway to her soul

She would stop on the same spot, every single day
Spot, where once promises were made
Closing her eyes, taking deep breath
She would time travel
Feel the same feelings again
Touch of his lips on her forehead
Sound of his voice, whispering promises
Goosebumps on her body, gracing like tidal waves
It would lit-up candle of hope
Only time, her wandering mind
Would find peace and remain at ease

Over the time, she had many followers
On-looker thought, she had lost it all
Some would say, that’s what true love is
Some would sympathize
As her waiting was never ending

One fine day, a lady couldn’t stop herself from asking
Why do you wait, every single day since ages?
Isn’t it painful?
She replied, “What would you do?
When your mind is ready to move on
But your soul is already married to someone you love?
It doesn’t matter, how broken your heart is
If you still believe in beauty of it
It means your love is true
And that’s all that matters



A Story: From here to eternity

There was a boy and a girl
In a small town, where roads were rough
No fairness cream for their fragile skins
A beautiful mix of sun tan and brown hair
Luxury for them, was to spend entire day together
Sitting on river side, throwing pebbles creating tides
Never thought, of what’s outside
They had a beautiful world inside

He would wrap his hands around her neck
Pull her sideways to kiss her cheeks
She would close her eyes to let the feeling sink in
Allowing it to run through her veins
And let it settle deep within

Often staring at each other, ending up in a smile
Or in their playful stubbornness would look so deep,
Waiting for tears to drop
They would often wonder, how much they love each other
So much so they were clues of what to do with their feelings
There was no doubts in their mind of what they felt
It was just pure magic

They would sneak out of their home at night
Hold each other’s hand tight, to get rid of fright
He would take her to the beach
They would dig their feet in the cold sand
As it settles between their fingers
To massage them
Sometimes they would discuss on
How different stars were from each other
Or how far was the moon

Mostly they would dance all night
His hands on her waist
Her head resting on his chest
They would swing and sway
With music in the air and rhythmic tides
Moon shining like a spotlight

As the night would end
They would rush back
Collecting sea shell
One, for every time they met
Break it into half and promise
That someday as they grow old
They would spent time
Connecting those shells together
And built something beautiful out of it

A Café story….

There was a guy sitting in a café
With an important agenda for the day
As it was clear in his anxious ways
Waiting for someone, more dearer
Seldom looking in his phone, maybe she was late
Took a deep breath to put a normal face
Helpless to stop his feet tapping
Eagerness in his eyes and moving lips
May be self-talking before he spill the beans
A waiter standing beside him with his reluctance
To ask third time, what would he like to eat?
A girl sitting on an adjacent bench
Her hair tied up with a pen
Hand on her head to rest
And other holding a book she read
Relishing the pleasant aroma of coffee steams
Hitting her nose like a soothing wind
With cross eyes and a smug smile
She saw his obvious curiousness
Took a tissue and wrote a note
As her hair felt down like a rain drop
Falling in a rhythm, covering her side face
As it was about time to solve this curious case
Handed over note to a waiter
Pointing towards the anxious guy
After a while,
Excited waiter with a proud smile
Gave her a thumbs up sign
She had a glance at him
As he was busy reading
Upon finishing
Held note on his chest with a relief
I guess Beans were spilled
As he looked around for her
There she was
With deep breath and smile on his face
He blinked
Tying her hair back up again with a pen
She winked

Beauty within

Your eyelids had a morning dew
Like a gem it glew
Too good to be true
Carrying a story, only few knew
With aching heart and healing soul
Life had its own plan to unfold
You had your share of ups and downs
Spiraling through the dusks and dawns
Like a beautiful tree holding ground
Shedding leaves on autumn fall
Breaking through the darkest walls
There is beauty in your fight, after all
Like an angel without wings
Seeing beauty in every being
Spreading love with hopes and dreams
Turning pain into inspiration
Carved yourself with creative ink
For eyes to adore without blink
A journey that makes you think
Scars can heal
If we find beauty within


City Girl …..

She hides it beautifully
Not her scars or imperfections but her dreams
And she has got better in it
It’s not easy being a city girl, is it?
Walking through the narrow lanes
People watching you with narrow minds
Guys with super-natural powers
Striping you naked by staring at you
In their mere imagination
Often questioning yourself, Do I look so vulnerable?
And it takes practice, to learn
Learn how to overlook them
Learn how to self-motivate
Ignoring the boredom of routine
Sometimes finding yourself
Over-thinking about feminism in this world
Sometimes wanting to runway
From this chaos and just be alone
Missing someone not worth missing
Those beautiful lyrically sad songs
Making you cry isn’t it?
Marriage for girls is like
A flower that is about to blossom
Is plucked to be offered
People can accept randomness in guys
But you, NO NO … don’t even think of it
Unfair isn’t?
Behave like a girl?
Sit like a girl?
Talk like a girl?
Do everything like a girl?
is it good for you ? No
Is It good for people who are watching you? YES
If you do a tattoo or piercing
Your brand value goes way done
You would have heard that, right?
From people who don’t have balls to do it
Coz it hurts and it needs courage ..
I am glad things are changing
Not the society, they are and will be creeps
But you…coz it was enough right?
Taking matter in your own hands was the best option
You have come up strong
And I am glad
I know many of you city girls


First time…..

First time has its extremes
No matter the consequence
First time in everything that you do, say or see..
Will shake you from inside
That’s exactly how I felt
When I saw you standing on a sideline
Restless tapping of your foot
Rolling eyes, biting lips and playing with your hair
You were unsure
You were anxious
And you looked beautiful
May be you wanted world to notice you
And If they did
You would shy away
Go inside your shell
Where it’s warm and comforting
Yet an eye outside, looking for that perfect moment
I had a feeling right away
This……. you and me
If ever it shall happen
It is going to be tough
Like ego breaking and soul crushing
But somehow seeing you standing there
I felt
It will be worth every struggle
I had to give it a try
And so I did
Since then, every time when I experience something for the first time
It reminds me of you
Out of all the things that has happened to me
You still hold the number one place
You are my best first time….

Clashes within…

She could drown in her own sadness
Feel lonely being surrounded by people
Would get high in her own mood swings
Part of her always wanted to be in love
It didn’t matter if the feeling was painful
She just wanted to be in it
To know once again, how it feels
It seemed, in her own emptiness
She had lost her sense of feelings
Undoing the past was not an option
But all she wanted was to
Unlearn how not to hate herself
She knew it was impossible to heal
Without being in love
It didn’t matter if love would bring her new scars
She just wanted to get rid of the old ones
She wanted to be in love



Moments ….

If you are hoping for a big miracle, it will never happen
If you are hoping life will suddenly change, it will never happen
Probability of which is very rare
Then, there are those little moments
Which lasts for a minute or more, where you are genuinely touched
You want that moment to be with you forever
But it flashes by and leaves you with a feeling that can’t be described in words
You can’t control small happy moments
They come and then they go
They probably don’t even make it to your top 10 memory list
But it’s those small happy moment that are part of something big
The fact is, we all have our issues
And we will have them until our last breath
But it’s all those moment that keeps pushing you
After all we are humans
We are meant to find our happiness from chaos
We all breakdown, that’s your moment right?
That’s you, dealing with your problems…. your way
You had to get rid of it that’s the reason you broke down
Respect that because no one else will
You cut off and create a protective shell
And after a while you have to come out of it
Coz it’s boring,
It’s boring to be sad and it’s boring to be happy always
You leave behind what’s gone and move ahead
Breaking your protective shell
And say,
I am never going back there
But still you do… you have to… that’s life
Remember, out of chaos you find happiness
That’s the way it is
So stop believing that your problems are forever
Coz they are not, you are not here forever
And, you know what the best part is
It’s just once we live
Just once

Girl, that’s all you need to know….

Someday there will be someone
Who will have nothing to do with your imperfections, your failures and your bad decisions
His only purpose will be to fill your hollow with pure affections
Only thing he will look for
Is to be with you
Every minute, every second
The most important thing for him
Will be your presence
All the sufferings Will be respected
All your insecurities of future will be dealt with
All your fear will be absorbed
Coz for him it’s you and only you
That defines his life
It didn’t started with you
But surely
He wouldn’t end it without you
Your Grey hair, your rough skin
Will not change beauty in your eyes
That he adores and fell in love with
No matter how different your paths may be
It will cricle within boundaries of your love
No matter how far you travel
In search of unknown yet important
You will end up besides him
Coz that’s where you will comforted
No matter how far and high you’ll fly
Look in his eyes won’t change
Coz he knows she will rest her flight
To a place called home
Where you both belong
