A woman is…..

A woman is…..

Who rises above the rising water

Never takes anything with a shrug

Her every breath pushes her to strive for more

It is not her hands that wades when drowning

but her undaunted spirit that carries her through the flood

And a resilient heart that helps her to rise above the rising water.

without you…..

It’s a mundane existence

Without you beside my love

Time rolls its wheels churning the life

Minutes drag by burning my soul

Sustaining my breath, I wait by the door

Perception deceives me when I see a silhouette

It’s just a mirage that glides by

The hours sumptuously devour my patience

As the days crawls into weeks

I stand by the door for a glimpse

For a hug, for a kiss, battling with

Life devouring time that grinds its

Sinister teeth,

As the minutes crawls all over me

 I stand by the door hungered by your love.

 

Basic needs of life

Eager to traverse far off the limits to reach the horizon

Only to see the sky doesn’t meet the sea in the ethereal liaison.—-ambition.

 

Those traumatic pains may have bruised you all along

But they are the medication to make you strong.—-encouragement.

 

It is not in me to tell you the knots of life

Know to believe and push the boundary

or else, knots will be all that you know.—–determination.

 

Believe those words that echo in your head

Believe that image that you see in the mirror

Believe that heart that says, ‘you have it in you’

Believe that soul that pushes you to go.——faith.

 

 

Nostalgia

Nostalgic endeavours struggling to keep pace with time,

penning from an unchartered memory connecting it with a rhyme,rose

I float away reminiscing those bygone days,

wording those dallying moments in every possible way.

Sitting in a corner ruminating with rue,

about those missed kisses hushed with a cue,

drowning in the sea of your love

embracing those memories blessed from above.

Two decades has the wheel of time turned,

facing those glaring eyes, endless relations spurned,

were we the ill-fated star-crossed lovers reincarnated

or was it the trick of cupid?

This fool in love knows not the god’s ways,

she just knows, that this birth is insufficient

to know you and love you.

Betrayal

betrayal

Laughter echoes over her mind,

Quietened by the aching heart to wind,

Time froze and disintegrated into tears,

Accompanied by profound disdainful fears.

Was he truthful to her innocent true love?

She pondered over her commitment to resolve,

Questions surged with answers to find,

But the aching heart crumpled her spirit to grind,

The long forgotten true love lay dying,

As she resolved to face the man, who was honestly lying,

Gathering strength from her burning tears of betrayal,

Evolved has she into a  woman of survival,

Fearless and undeterred, she ran towards the sun,

And her free spirit blissfully screamed, that she has just begun.

Life lessons

hope

Oh! ye mortals! look around you,

You think those tribulations pertains to you,

It’s the darkest clouds that rains,

It’s the molten iron that bends,

It’s the fallen seed that grows,

These are your lessons for evermore.

Life is a teacher and you, a mere student,

Learn, for opportunity knocks only once, so be prudent.

Those desolate days and exasperating times of existence,

Tests your patience, perseverance and persistence,

Don’t just stay afloat in the river of life,

swim to the shore with hope to live and jive,

The knowledge and wisdom that life imparts you to sow,

seldom comes decorated with chocolates and bow,

Through fire she moulds and strengthens your resistance,

Through failure she toughens your resilience,

And to test your faith, she darkens your days.

As she is the best teacher, learn those life lessons patiently,

pass those trials bravely, and exalted you shall be.
