Surviver

Nobody has an inch of idea
Of the amount of pain she carries
Beneath her cheerful smile
And the jolly laughs

The way she spreads the love
Like molten magma
That fills up the earth
Replacing the voids in us

Dear darling be strong
Cause you're what I get strength from
Smile and walk ahead
Be a surviver in this brutal world

Bleeding Friendships

Don't friends fight sometimes
In the end reconcile too?
I'm in hope, that maybe someday
We can row in one boat and
Laugh out loud like we always do?

The bygone days can't come back
But we can plan trips, no?
When everything's back to normal
And possibly there're chances to meet
Can we get together some place too?

Even street side dahi puchka is good
When I share the plate with you
So let's just meet for a cup of tea
Making memories for a lifetime
Till the next time I see you two?

Let's forgive each other at once
Restart like we did as sophomores?
Let's just stop feeling this low
Let's just stop being so cruel
Let's just love each other true?




Did You Lose Something Too?

Last year, around September
I wrote about losing you
Long before, sometime in 2018
I kind of felt that way too

Now that we do not talk
and I do not care anymore
I write about losing you
Better off without you

Forevers are too old fashioned huh
and you've got so much to distract yourself
Maybe you never needed me in first place
I don't need your negativities too!

But you'd been in my heart
four long years is quite a time
Untangling you is jumbling me 
Has it never been the same for you?

You're nice, and sweet and all
But you're whiner, and griper
You're fake and you're troubles
but then you're also a biased lover

You've loved me, when you thought I was right
You've cared enough
I've been there in your thick and thin
Now you leave when I tell you you're wrong?

You say that I take sides
and I never took yours
How in a moment you break us
Is it not a big deal to you?

I had been thinking about
how to wish you one month from now
Call? Wouldn't that be weird
Maybe I will leave a text on phone?

Social media texts are even better
but I haven't been seeing your posts lately
Afraid to find what you could have done
Ah! So you have unfriended us!

I peep in to see your happy posts
with your gangs, or solo
you've made quite a friends
You'd never understand this hollow

I see you've been posting bolder pics
Slaying with our 'enemy' friends
I've been reading real friends are never lost
only people masquerading as friends are!

So, after long I'm trying to engulf
that we're just a history now
But did you never feel the twinge
did you never lose a part or a thing?










Ouch.
