Take Charge

For once I thought,
It’s enough.
The pain.
The anguish.
The lamenting.
Let it just be done.
For once and for all.
And cherish the beauty of now.
The power it holds.
Life could be messy right now.
But it couldn’t be any better too.
Things might be shady.
But when has it not been?
If not this, the other.
And well, we know now,
it’s never easy peasy.
So just stop complaining.
And embrace what you have.
Many crave for this comfort.
Work their ass off for this job.
Many save lakhs just to visit home.
Or wait tirelessly for a vacation.
Feel blessed for today.
For you cannot hold all of world’s joy at once.
And that is okay.
It shouldn’t stop you from being grateful.
I wanted to write something utterly beautiful today.
But anyway, not every day could be a writers’ day.
So I just pour the thoughts in blank verse.
And let them find their meaning.
While I discover mine.

PS: Feeling confident, sharing positive vibes πŸ™‚

Shades of Being Tired

I am tired and I have work to do in the morning 
But the night just takes me over, nothing feels better
I hope for strength for both of us
And I secretly wish for your text
But I know I've lost it

Exactly two months later.

I am tired and I have work to do in the morning 
But the night is getting dizzy, bedding is too comfy
I hope for strength for both of us
And I secretly wish you never text
But i know you'll do it anyway

Five months hence.

I am tired and I have work to do in the morning
But longer screen time disrupts my sleep cycle
You are buried in the back of my mind, and deep down
You know everything that it feels without
I got things to tell, but I let you be, undisturbed

10 months down the line.


I am tired and it's cause I had a fulfilling day
Of simple things, nature, self love, work and breaks
I read, sketched, flexed, and fought your thoughts
I think you got across just too fast
No complaints, it's me and my unshaken heart

Cold Days

A strong wave stuck by
Destructing me and my house of cards
Perhaps it was the winter breeze
For which I prayed ten months long

It was a hazy reflection
Glossing over floating pieces in slo-mo
Like weary words of once a dearest
Exploded right over my face

Oh no! That was not any breeze
A turmoil it was, dressed like hailstorm
Got blurry sight, dust in eyes
Pain in heart that felt like dying

While the heart raced against the time
I ran, jumped, galloped to catch my cards
That's when the lightening bolt found me
And we burnt, me and my soaring parts

Gold

It's difficult explaining anybody why I must stay aloof
For nobody gets how I need to keep my heart safe
How important it is to not let it break
To not let any stranger create a wreck

I already got too much in my head space
My heart breaking with familiar ache
Ruins of days that still walk past by
Memories that never say goodbye

I don't know if anyone is capable of holding
The heart so tender a thing that it is
You need to be truly a man to know
How to hold a heart of gold

Lilies

Everytime I pull myself up
You come knocking with lilies
I peep through the keyhole
And I know how I love it

I'd been longing for flowers
you sell the best ones too
I abstain opening the doors
For I'd stopped buying from you

The last time you traded
roses full of thorns
Has still got me bruises
From things I still adorn

Yet I open the door
End up buying those lilies
Through my bleeding hand
Creeps in the willies
