The Kite

It was so wonderful to have you in my hands,
That I jumped in excitement like a kid,
I hugged and praised all your colourful features,
And my heart swelled with pride because I knew that you belonged to me.
When the wind came, you started to flutter,
And I knew that you wanted to fly high in the sky,
So, I carefully chose the string to tie it with you,
Then ran towards the highest peak that I ever knew.


I looked for the wind directions to help you with your flight,
And slowly detached myself from you for your wish to come true,
When I saw your happiness I had to cut the string that attached you with me,
To let you go,to see you roam freely.
But, when the wind settles and you find that there is not even a breeze,
To keep you motivated with your flight,
Find your way back home,
And I will be waiting with the perfect string to launch you back in the sky.

Last Night…

Sometimes, dreams try to talk to you



Last night I saw you on my way,
Talking to someone and walking away,
I saw you were all smiling and happy with your life,
While you made me to think all about my life.
Last night I saw you turned to look at me,
And your helpless eyes spoke to me,
I felt a twitch in my heart as I saw the sea infront of you,
Were you happy for yourself or for someone that you knew?
Last night I saw that you were saying goodbye,
While wind whispered in my ears all the secrets of your eye,
In that cold dark night I saw your tears coming through,
Last night I think I dreamt of you.

The Heartbreak


You will be that pain in my heart that never gets old,
As your lies were taking chances one by one to unfold,
A scar in my heart that will always be new,
While you are partying with someone I knew.
Time heals everything they say,
Hoping that it won't be a lifetime and that's what I pray,
How could one can understand another's soul so deeply,
Yet can't see their betrayals
and be blind completely?

I wrote this poem while I was watching Grace and Frankie. It was actually Frankie who inspired me as she loved Sol and knew each and every minute details about him but didn’t realize that he was cheating on her for about two decades. Irony is that they were like soulmates.

You Are Strong…


When the whole world stops,
And there is nothing to hope,
You give your smile,
To convince me that all is well,
Oh baby! You are strong.
When my heart starts to bleed,
And it gets hard for me to breathe,
Then you hug me and kiss me to calm my mind,
I see the resilience in your eyes,
Oh baby! You are strong.
When it gets hard to take another step,
All I see are the walls and there is no way to escape,
You take my hand to go for a walk,
And show me a world beyond those walls,
Oh my baby! You are strong.

A Moment

A moment of perfection,
It was when I saw you giving instruction,
To someone who was in need,
I thought you did a good deed.
A moment of love and affection,
In those eyes I saw a beautiful connection,
Where I could see my whole life,
I knew that soul from other life.
A moment of euphoric sensation,
When you took the chance to ask me a question,
It felt like I was floating in the space,
And then I fell flat on my face.

I don’t know what love is…

I don't know what love is,
But I'm sure it's not breaking another's trust,
It's not comparing one to another,
It's not keeping secrets to self,
It's not hiding the truth from other,
It's not pointing out only the weaknesses,
It's not blaming the other for the disastrous event,
It's not being selfish and thinking just about yourself,
It's not humiliating the other infront of your friends,
It's not owning the other like a material,
It's not about age,sex, money,status,race or religion,
Now, I know what love is,
It's just the opposite of all the above said,
Love is love,
Nothing less or nothing more.

Is There A Way?

Is there a way to find out,
What is inside your heart?
Is it the feeling of happiness of loving someone?
Or a feeling of pride of owning someone?
Is there a way to find out,
What your intentions are?
Is it to bring out the best in someone?
Or to tarnish by spilling out the the secrets of your trusted ones?
Is there a way to find out,
Who you really are?
Is that the big smile on your face is honest?
Or just a lie to hide your poisonous mind which is dishonest?
Is there a way to find out,
While I'm standing on this crossroad,
To run towards you with all the love in my heart,
Or to run away as fast I can with my life in my hand?

My Little Sunshine….

When my life turns upside down,
When I feel all alone,
When none of the things feel right,
When everything in front of me is an upsetting sight,
I see you running towards me,
To wrap your arms around me,
Then you give me your soothing kiss on my cheeks,
Did I ever tell you this?
That you are my little sunshine,
You are my little sunshine...

Forever…..

Saw pure love in their eyes,
When they were gazing each other's eyes,
A half a century of life together,
Still they love to have moments together.
Finding a person to love is a blessing,
But to be loved in the same way needs more blessings,
Their love and care for each other made my heart warm,
When I saw him tucking her to keep her body warm.
When they said forever in their vows,
They meant each and every word of their vows,
To be there for each other is not overrated,
Forever is not at all overrated.
