Radhika’s Love

My love O Krishna
you never did fathom
the silence of the storm
roars loud still
For greater good
you let me part
Why not with me
you could defy
Where’s your power
that will heal my heart
Which mountain
did you lift
for me and my love?

Everlasting Winter

the summer was short this time
monsoons too weren’t long
frost began to appear on
the reddest of hearts’ song
slowly the winter set in
though not a footprint of memory
forever white the page turned
no more a new story…

It is ok

It is ok to fall and be broken
It is ok to cry and fight.
When a hand is stretched for you
It is ok to hold it tight.
People come and people go
Let them fly free
The one who cares for you will stay
Like a deep rooted tree.

The Demons of the Shadow

Days pass by amidst no new dawn
Darkness grasping minds everywhere
Demons’ desire of blood assuaged
Deep within lies its nest full of bones
Hatred and evil in every nook and corner
Hissing and crawling serpent like
Heaven’s gate engulfed by Erebus
Hell gaped wider with gleaming fangs
Lamps are flickering about to die
Lurking shadows under the covers
Lechers and Leeches awaiting their chance
Looking around for softer flesh
Perilous are the ways ahead
Perfidious faces in the ocean so blue
Perturbed are known faces too enveloped by
Plundering ravaging fogging fear
Tangled in the trap of the demons
Toutured to the core
Tarnished soul is eaten away by self
Tattered self lies for the hyenas in the shadows
Abominable reflections on the mirror of eyes
Acrimony scattered like jungle fire
Agony of assault was nothing compared
Abyss of loathe in every inch of skin that burnt
Feminine fault they find in the burns
Fumbling around the chest with again
Foresaken by the feeble minds
Frozen feelings behind the closed doors
Junkyard would they throw the soul
Jarred the body awake, this thought
Jerking pains and swollen lips still
Jolted a spirit to fight against
Not a hand from the covering they call skin
Numbness began to eat away
Nettlesome tears rolled down her cheeks
Not a body they call human around
Road she will have to tread alone
Resilience will be an acquired skill
Resolute she was for her path
Rooted strongly to the ground
Vestal no more, all said with taunts
Valiantly she will wage a war
Vengeance she will bring upon
Virile demons will be slaughtered to bring back the new dawn.

Note: This poem was written on the context of increasing number of rapes. Women face a lot of mental and physical abuse from inside as well as outside her home. Strangers apart, even family members try to take advantage of her aand many times the blame is placed on her shoulder. The poem showcases the evils of our society and its ruthlessness towards women in general.

My Paradise

I live in a paradise
Surrounded by the hills
Greenery everywhere
with few scattered mills
Few birds fly below
My window is up high
Far you see the lights
where the villages lie
Various shades of green,
Red and yellow there
Like a colourful painting
From the window, everywhere.

The rainbow from my window

Deceit

Like a temptress in the wild, who enthralls all who seek;
When they come near, o so near!
With heart so innocent and weak.
Like a poison ivy you wrap
upon their bleeding heart
weave a spider’s web so smooth
A dangerous enchanting trap!
Deceit is your prowess but the knife
I could not see was there.
When spring was gone, I see my heart was nothing, but a spare!

Heaven on Earth

The sunrise o’er the horizon blue
Crimson sky awakes the seagulls too
Swaggering like a bride in white.
The waves below the flying red kite
The sunflowers on my terrace arise
Whispering softly the wind in guise
My door in brightest azure tricks
To believe the colour of sea it picks
Wandering & travelling wherever I go
Heaven on Earth is back here I know.

WINGS

               
I wish to have wings and fly
With the rolling time and tide
They wait for no one and go by
However fast you ride.

Years come and years pass
Adding more to life
No not age I speak about
Nor the vice or strife
Let us make the rumours scarce
But love and wisdom rife

Bidding adieu to the memories that last
Manifolds all the pains
Fly high with the wings spread wide
And forget all the stains

I wish to see the unicorn pink
Up in the clouds so high
Believe what I want to believe
Live! Prior the inevitable goodbye!
Spreading of wings is so simple,
Than to forever sit and cry!

I wish to have those wings soon
Cause the time is running fast
Freedom is a necessary boon
from a not so distant past….

   A new beginning   

When the clouds are grey,With not a silver lining near
When dreams betray, And the mind has nothing but fear

When locked up in cages, With the key lost somewhere
When lost are the pages, Of the life’s melody everywhere

When the sun shines, But without its dazzling rays
When hope fades, With the passing of the days

When the mighty ones fall, With the ever glistening eyes
When there are only calls, For the final goodbyes

When we seek God , Behind the closed doors
When we find God, Where there are only sores

When the world is still, And Mother nature heals
When you see the distant hill, And how the blue sky feels

When Hope is our only weapon, And Patience is our armour
When Love is our only beacon, And Empathy is the charmer

When distancing afar, We stay hand in hand
When hearts ajar, In every inch of land

Then my friend remember, The battle is almost won
There is still the ember, Glowing and yet not done

We will live to see the day again, Brighter than before
Only be grateful, don’t complain, Live to the fullest and more

The Wind

 The wind came and whispered to me
“Wont you come along?”
“No” I said very loud and clear
This is where I belong.

He was amazed and muttered angrily
“Wont you go and play?”
I drowned my pain in laughter and said
“I have no more dolls of clay”.

“No longer a little girl, you see
Into a woman I have grown.
How dare you ask me to roam and play
Blow away now, all alone.”

With dampened hope the wind blew away
To a place where my spirit lies
Where I played all day with friends and foes
Under the clear blue skies.

With an ocean twirling in my eyes
I sing a lullaby
To the child on my lap who lay
The strongest ever tie.

“Hush my baby, go to sleep.
Keep your fears at bay
The winds’ gone forever now,
I have send him far away”.
