This isn't a regular post. I'm just sharing my favourite poem. So I found this poem on Tumblr back in high school and I fell in love with it. I even by-hearted it. But once college started, I didn't even think about it. Recently I remembered it and I've been trying to remember it but I could only recall bits and pieces. Some words here and there and the vibe I felt.
Hey everyone! One of my friends, Shobhit Kushwaha, writes poetry and I thought why not feature one of his works over here! It's originally in Hindi, but we've tried to translate it as best as we can. Enjoy! तेरे लबों में एक अधूरी प्यास बाकी है.. (There is an incomplete thirst in your lips) तुझसे… Continue reading तेरे लबों में एक अधूरी प्यास बाकी है
Today, I have Fabio Descalzi guest posting! Head is blurred. Mind is knotty. Thought is tangled. Missed words? Never mind. Just prompts. Depth of thought. Meanders in your mind. Paths inside your head. Better now? Should be. May be. Just thoughts. Now I think better. Now I feel sober. Now I know. Any other grief? Not… Continue reading Deep Mind
1.. 2.. 3.. 4.. One word to question my life Why Two words, everyday, running in my mind No more I had three words to say when we met Leave me alone Four words when you wanted to be my friend I don't see why 5.. 6.. 7.. 8.. Some five words when I… Continue reading Counting beats
I see you standing over there; My heart soars like a vulture High above the ground inside me That keeps me down with gravity. I can feel my bones singing Like the beautiful nightingale, Pouring out notes in high pitch. You are only a few feet away from me now; The snow-capped mountains in… Continue reading Explosion of my earth
It is hard not to conceal my emotions When I was brought up With missionaries of no emotion. I do not realise when I am asked a question; That I have not offered an expression with my answer. It is not natural to me As it's supposed to be. I have been constantly hiding in… Continue reading Conceal
Here's a poem by this week's guest blogger Charley. Love does not change through the centuries. Always unrequited or more accurately the fear of mutual love of what to do after the professed love. Always though there’s an obstacle a couple’s love must overcome: political parental self-induced or other. Miraculously like a book or movie… Continue reading Happy ending love
Daily post prompt Longing: Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. Longing desperately For a connection She drifts in life No anchor to keep her down, Nothing important enough To settle down. Life isn't an easy path Ploughing through alone is hard. "Love," she thinks, she craves Seeing evidence in two people holding… Continue reading Longing
Daily prompt Divide: Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt. Separation of two things Presence of a concise line between them Divided. Two people once so close Now on two different sides Fractioned. From pleasant breakfast every morning To cringing at an encounter; Loving embraces To five feet space Two-sectioned. One misunderstanding from… Continue reading Divided.
I don't care About my job; I don't mind Leaving this place; It doesn't matter That you want to go across the country. All of it Mean nothing As long as you and I Are together To wake up in each other's arms To have breakfast together To have fights over small things To make… Continue reading Nothing else
If I ever had to write An ode to you It would tell the world How I truly see you Inside out I would write About your huge heart Incredible kindness Benign thoughtfulness And your unwavering support Patriotism and humanity Equally balanced in your spirit You make rest of the population Look lacking in feature… Continue reading Ode to you
Here in the late summer sun I lay looking at the sky Thinking of the infinite and beyond And stuck here in reality In all the years to come, Will I ever feel contentment In the skin I possess And the routine I follow Oh, endless sky, How do you manage to be… Continue reading Musings to the sky
Imagine a world Where you and I Have a destiny Not so tragic. Where we are not Separated by misconceptions And miscommunications. Haunted by death And suffering from grief. I imagined and imagined Convinced that after going through so much Us together Wont work anymore. And as I pulled back I lost you… Continue reading The next life
I asked him one day What if I said I couldn't take it Anymore Would you ask me to stay Or would you Let me leave He replied I am not the sun Who sets every night For the moon to rise I am the rock And you are my earth I… Continue reading Gravity binds
Years later When we all stand here again With our hearts bundled up Inside ourselves Sadness and fatigue in our eyes And experience In the wrinkles on our skin We will wonder About the childhood we had Filled with innocence and happiness When we still remained best of friends We will wonder Looking at each… Continue reading Days bygone
