Fainted memories!

You are still here, somewhere

in a part of the cerebellum,

Your love is still here, somewhere

in the corner of my heart,

The way you used to smirk, the way you used to tease,

The way you made me feel totally at ease.

Yes! It’s all still there somewhere in my memories…

How the days were blessed and nights were long,

How your voice soothed my ears like a dreamy song.

How just being with you made the pieces fall into place,

How you crushed me in your strong embrace.

Yes! It’s all still there somewhere in my memories, though not clear…

Waking up and sleeping in with smile on face,

The mere thought of you made my heart race.

Nothing else bothered when you were near,

No rules were meant to adhere.

Yes! It’s all still there somewhere in my memories, though not clear,

Even if they have now fainted, they are still very dear…

One Year Anniversary!!

Exactly a year ago, my friend asked me to write a reprise version of the poem from the movie 10 things I hate about you. And, that is how it all started.

The praise i got for that, made me think, if such a mediocre piece can garner so many likes- I could sure write so much more and better.

And then, the words just poured.

What all I have seen through my life took shape in the form of poetry.

Not to forget, the love I got from you guys. I am greatful to all of my fellow bloggers for accepting me as their own. I love being here and reading y’alls amazing work.

 

Drowning..

Did you ever feel like you were drowning? 

That sinking feeling! 

It may not necessarily come when you are alone, 

It even haunts when you are surrounded by a bunch of people. 

Your head buzzing with all those noises,

But no voice brings you back to the SURFACE… 

Barbie doll

 

As a kid, she wanted to be like her barbie doll. Having long hair, pretty eyes and hourglass figure was her dream.


She wished someday she will also find her prince charming who would take her away to a magical land where there is only flowers and no sorrows..


She grew up beautifully to steal a few hearts,
Now they see her as an object, a walking robot which can not dream or fly,


And her heart is torn apart by some evil king.


Here she lies on the floor like a broken doll, there is no such thing as magic she thought,

when she looked up her barbie staring back at her wide-eyed through the glass,


She wanted to be like her when she was small,
but she didn’t knew that she will also be played like a lifeless doll..

Remote Control

How I wish life had a remote control..

Pausing and playing whenever I want,

Fast forwarding through bad times, 

Rewinding to correct mistakes made in the past,  

Recording the moments I want to relive again and again..

 Turning up the brightness when it is immersed in dark, 

Muting whenver the noises are too loud to hear,

And finally, to Power-off when it’s all too much to bear..

Switch-off

I switched-off the button,
and all the feelings left.
They left as if they were never there.
They left without much fuss.
And I was proud,
I was proud to have such control over them.
They now reside in a grave deep buried,
Where there reach no daylight or soul of night.

Except for when they left, created a void in me,
Vacuum perhaps,
leaving me completely blank and numb.

Now everyone is either not good enough,
or too good.
Small or too tall.
Ugly or too handsome.
Imperfect or just too perfect.

Unwilling to move on.
Can’t bring the brain to switch-on the button again
But the heart, it still clinges onto you..

Its just the beginning

Have you guys watched that movie called ’17 again’? Well, it was a comedy movie, but there was a dialogue in it which had a very deep meaning and probably an important life lesson too. It goes like: “When you’re young everything feels like the end of the world. But it’s not; it’s just the beginning.”

An acne, bad-haircut, poor grades, fights, heartbreak and we think that our life is over. It is not worth living anymore..
Tomorrow when we step out of our comfy bubble, into the real world, the challenges get real too. Will we be ready for them??

Do you know how a butterfly learns to fly? At first, the caterpillar creates a cocoon around itself and then one day it struggles to get out from that cocoon, so that the fluid is passed to its wings and the butterfly will have strong wings. But if you try to save the caterpillar some struggle and help it to get out of its cocoon, it will never be able to fly, it will spend its life crawling. The butterfly is supposed to struggle, only then it can fly.

When we will get older and wiser, the problems that we face today may look so small and even how we react to them now, may seem stupid to us later in life. So consider all the troubles we come across today, as the struggle that we are supposed to go through, so that we will have the strength to fly when the time arrives. Remember, its just the beginning!

that Illness called Goodness

If you are good, no one will care to do things for you because they know you will still love them unconditionally and will still treat them well, because, that is what you always do..

They will never remember you in good times, but you will always give them a shoulder to cry on in their bad times, because, that is what you always do..

They will never know what you have been through, because you never speak about your pain as you are so busy comforting them, because, that is what you always do..

They think you can’t see through their tricks, but you actually are very well aware but still choose to overlook, because, that is what you always do..

Universal truths-

  • The person who gives alot ends up having nothing.
  • The person who forgives easily is always betrayed the most.
  • The person who always wish best for others, has worst luck.
  • The person with the brightest smile is also the one with the saddest heart.

Changing equations..

The people around whom my whole world revolved once, are strangers today.
The people I once cried with, today even their smiles don’t reach their eyes.
The people who promised so much, forgot their vows.
The people who used to meet with warmth, seems so cold today..
Those with whom I used to see eye to eye on everything, today we can’t find any common grounds.

I guess this is how life is.. People are meant to change, equations are meant to differ.
Maybe I just wasn’t as ready as them, for this change and it took me some getting used to.
But what really surprised me was,

how surely they left, how effortlessly they adapted to it,
How easily they grew apart while i was still stuck finding the roots..
