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.

 

Water

water

The flowing verses in my mind,

gliding gloriously to bring gaiety to the grind,

surging in my heart to ebb out from thoughts,

meandering through the lanes of emotions,

splashing music of deep devotion,

a life serenading through the poetic streams,

where every end marks a new beginning of dreams.

Fire

 

fire

Farcical words to humour my seething anger,

a hug to subdue the burning ember of emotions,

a kiss to douse the searing flames scorching the heart within,

but the inferno in me refuses to die as it scintillates a spark of glow,

flaring the exasperation that devours my existence.

why? oh, why! such resentment that had inflamed my mind,

but the long-forgotten reason that irked the fire in me,

had scorched the world that I love.
