Happy Valentine’s Day! 

Right in the bang of the night, 

When my heart was fluttering low, 

I popped up with a question in my mind – – – 

If you’re my friend or foe… 

Igniting a fire that no one can douse down within me, 

You had changed me for whom I had been before, 

Transforming me into a character so strong, 

That I recognise myself no more. 

Slaying every wound that comes my way, 

You’ve protected me like a nurturing seed, 

Neither letting me get burnt under the scorching sun, 

Nor quenching my thirst with more water than I need. 

Hammering me like a hot, iron rod, 

You’re now shaping me into the mould 

That would emerge victorious at all phases, 

Turning every metal with a hue of gold. 

Illuminating my heart and soul always 

You’ve made me your Angel, come what may, 

So, I’d like to thank you on this auspicious day—

My dear Phoenix, wishing you a Happy Valentine’s Day!

Goodbye 

​Raining in the core of my heart, 

Your love has ploughed my barren soul, 

Tingling every loo away, 

And the snowflakes that freeze me cold. 
In the morning you’ve woken me up lovingly 

To feed me with your own hand in the day 

So that I’m happy watching the setting sun 

And the stars that shone brightly on the night sky each day. 
Sweetly touching and caring for me 

You made me forgot that I had no one ever, 

Such was the gravity of your genuine love 

That my heart aches to leave you forever. 
Helpless I feel that I’m a curse upon you 

Bringing bad fortune since the time 

That I set my foot in your life, 

Burning all your happiness and dime. 
In the Sands of Time, my name would be written 

Now that it’s time for me to stop this deceive, 

Be happy and enjoy life, do your best, 

Because it’s the time for me to permanently leave.

Crying silently… 

So excited was I throughout my trip, 

Because I knew I’d see you, 

Everyday, I’d flip through the pages of the calendar 

To smile at the date marked in blue. 

It’s only been twelve long days since I’d seen you last 

At the station the first thing I got off the train, 

The same familiar features with a dimpled cheek 

Once again just blew over my heart and brain. 

So eager was I to hold your hand and

Feel your breath so divine, 

And close my eyes to experience bliss 

When you kiss me down my spine. 

But destiny has got other plans it seems 

And it’s plan is to make us wait 

And wait and wait till the right time arrives 

For the fish to catch it’s bait. 

So excited was I to see you again tonight,

Dressed in your same old jeans, 

Trying to catch a glimpse of your Angel, 

Against all odds and all means. 

However, it seems that destiny, once again, 

Has decided to keep us apart again, 

So I’m waiting now and gazing at the sky 

Because even the moonlight now can’t soothe my pain. 

My throat is dry, I don’t have voice to talk, 

My eyes are a grievous red and burning incessantly, 

Yet I’m pretending to smile through the searing pain 

While my eyes are crying silently…

Twentieth Birthday! 

I was a toddler laughing around 

Teaching nature what she wanted to show 

Laughing and jumping all the while, 

Carefree, childlike, having no foe. 

I became a extrovert in my teen days 

Not being afraid of being provoked 

Because I knew well how to tackle 

And cross that, on my path, were purposely invoked. 

Nearing the end of the teenage life, 

I became a secluded soul so much so 

That I lost my true identity for once 

Letting fate overpower my boldness at one go. 

But, no more will I be afraid to fall 

As,  in falling,  we seek the path to swim at bay, 

And bloom as the most beautiful flower on the earth – – – 

This promise I make on my twentieth birthday.

I love you… 

Never before has it happened that 

You’ve kept me far away from you, 

In a world where none but I live alone 

Nested by a dark, blackish hue. 

A world so dark that I crave to see 

The light peeping through the wall 

That binds the infinite length and breadth 

Of this imaginary room adorned with a rag-doll, 

That is, me, torn apart by your skillful archery, 

Leaving my shattering heart to vanish with a rage 

That is driving you away from me, 

Locking me inside a thorny cage. 

It hurts a lot, but, I keep silent 

Trying to fight my tears within

From flowing incessantly in front of the man

 I love the most therein. 

I’m  torn and ravaged now, mercilessly,

I’ve no energy left to call out to you 

But even if you go away from me 

I’ll wait for you forever, because, I love you…

A tiny, green light… 

A tiny, green light lits up my dark room, 

My eyes dart towards that direction, 

My fingers slide through the broken screen, 

To check once again the notification. 

My eyes droop down as I wait for him, 

Typing his heart out at lightening speed, 

I see him online and he sees me, 

Yet, we both stay quiet widening the gap between us indeed…

Wait…

The yellow rose turns it’s head,
Towards the woman in red
Walking down the aisle with grace,
As it remembers seeing its cherubic face

In the churchyard last Sunday,
Wiping off her eyes where lay
The ancient grief of blood-loss
As she waits for years for her love ’cause

She’s destined to test her patience strong
Even though seven years’ wait is too long
For her husband to return to her from the grave
That doesn’t exist in the war zone depraved…
