Vision

An uneventful day or so it would seem Eyes wide awake in a dream A split second decision, charging in his direction An inevitable collision in symphonic orchestration Swerving in a rush of panic and impulse The car plunged off the edge of the bridge In free-fall, a few seconds in the air A huge…

Psychological War

My candle burns brightly Never to extinguish If the harshest of wind blows The thicket of thorns grow I won’t go down without a fight Because I believe I’m in the right My battalion may be small But determined not to stall I never started this war I won’t back down until I soar High…

Home

The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned. ~ Maya Angelou I move in the shadows Barely noticeable through the window Of your souls that you shut down Long ago, more so than I can count This is not the…

Chain Of Memories

  2 feet tall and every moment I was Watched lovingly and carefully like a hawk 3 feet tall and the world was A mystical place through the lens of innocence 4 feet tall and I was carefree Life revolved around work and play 5 feet tall and I had many questions Because things no…

The Truth About Truth

Is truth an illusion of reality that we have created? Is truth lost in translation? Misinterpretations and ambiguity; A magician’s trick designed for deception. Independent perception or fabrication to woo the masses; Hidden amidst a maze of lies Some find it the right way, the others choose left Some stand on grounds of neutrality But…

Twilight

Stars aligned perfectly in unison Embroidering the dark blanket The sun goes down, so does the disappearing crimson The world breathes quietly free from the racket Of birds or the cacophony of my thoughts. I am a creature of the dark I see beauty where everyone else fails to For there can be no light…

What is love?

Each one of us has our own interpretation of love. The more I try to understand its nature, the more bewildered I am. Its seems like an endless journey, this quest to find the true meaning of love. The more you explore, the more entwined its essence gets. If love sets hearts on fire, doesn’t…

The Golden String

  For times when reality gets overbearing, music is my safe haven. To me music is like a story, where, as the tale unfolds you become one with the character, you experience their joys, dreams, fears and hopes. And when the story ends you reluctantly snap back to reality and the spell is broken. Lately,…

A Survivor’s Cry

-This short poem is an insight in the mind of a victim of bullying. All of us, at some point of time have been a bully ourselves by not taking a stand against those who bully others and silently watching it from the sidelines. It is time to make a change and join forces in…

If I Risk It

Waves crashing upon the seashore Whispering secrets buried deep in the sea Its surface pristine blue at the crack of dawn,  a deeper hue of navy by nightfall Camouflaging the numerous skeletons that lay at rock bottom. One brave sailor took upon herself a voyage to conquer the sea Sailed to the end of the…

Anger Management

As it keeps escalating to endless heights,I take a deep breath and let it go Because words left unsaid at anger’s height,saves a million ties from shattering A broken glass, although fixed, can never possess its original lustre So never let it fall, never let anger overpower the soul from within. It may seem tempting…
