A second meet

We’ll meet again,

Maybe when our lives are a bit less hectic,

Maybe when we’ll be owning our dream professional identities,

Maybe on a Sunday morning while you’re out for a jog.

Overlooked at first, you’ll notice me sitting on a bench,

Reading a book, yeah by then,

It’d be a habit maybe.

ALMOST 5

In a dimly lit room,

Of smoke and ashes,

Her skin shines,

Like a childhood memory.

MY LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE

I’d have thought I were blind,

If it weren’t for you,

My little ray of sunshine.

SHE WILL CONQUER THEM ALL

They slashed her wings,

So that she cannot fly.

Stripped off her freedom,

Hoping that she would die.

AND THEN IT’S YOU AND YOUR EMPTINESS AGAIN

And then it’s you and your emptiness again,

Just the two of you.

No matter how many people visit or knock the realms of your heart,

Nothing stays forever except pain,

Except loneliness.

HOPE

My eyes are shedding tears,

As I am in pain.

A very closest of mine,

Left me in vain.

DEAR WOMEN

My dear women,

Stop grappling for everything,

From morning to evening.

 

My dear women,

Learn to speak,

Cause either they will think you are so weak.

 

My dear women,

You are beautiful on your own way,

You don’t have to change for their mind’s play.

 

My dear women,

Stop whimpering and  hiding your face under pillow,

You have the right to glow.

 

If she is wearing short,

She is a whore.

If she is free and frank,

She is sllaber frow .

 

She has given up her dreams,

Only cause of you are so important as firm.

She changed her avenue,

Cause now she learnt  to be complacent with you.

 

Carrying  smile on her face,

Serving food to washing clothes.

Cleaning house to looking after menage’s,

She does everything .

 

Taking as its her duties and she has to clinch.

She is trying to looking elegant,

Just because of trying to getting attention from them.

 

No woes,

Ahhh, actually she expunges,

What is it ?

She dealt up with it,

And forged another connotation for it.

 

In last its not enough for all,

Flinging her dreams,

Taking him as her firm.

 

No breaks, doing duties as hireling,

Instead, she is also the member of that dwelling.

 

My dear women,

Please stop holding those things,

Which are not meant for your livings.

 

You are not a scullery maid,

You are the mistress with your own privilege.

EQUALITY OVER EVERYTHING ELSE

I’m still in a quandary wondering that is this the modern world we are living in! When will the society be free from the shackles of patriarchy, misogyny, sexism and feminism, is still a question!

MY OWN VERSION OF UTOPIA

He asked me to wait,

And to hold trust on unpredictable fate.

He assured me that,

He will find me before apocalypse.

ONE SIDED LOVE

One sided crush? One sided love?

Whatever! It’s just like a fine wine!

It’s the most powerful thing!

One sided love is never gonna work.

It’s just like the failing of Newton’s third law!

Or maybe you spend your whole life pretending it will work out one day!

You are not mine, but I have been loyal in this relationship.

Feeling the pain of losing someone who is not even yours!

It’s just like not hoping for a reply for the message sent.

I don’t know whether it’s making me or breaking me.

But baby! My love has no boundaries.

My one sided love, too, *is a fine wine*. It will always age with time.

Baby! You will be always loved and cared for.
