Silence

I speak,
I speak louder than words ever will.

I am the surreal silence,
I belong to nature.

I am the deathly silence,
I belong to the dead.

I am the romantic silence,
I belong to lovers.

I am the poetic silence,
I belong to poets.

I am the painful silence,
I belong to the silenced.

I am the humanly silence.
Loud enough to be felt,
Mute enough to be heard.

Silence

 

Had silence been the answer,

Love would not have been badmouthed,
Friendship would not have been tagged a “business”.

Had silence been the answer,

I would have received the answers long back,
The questions would have ended long back.

I wish silence had been the answer,
Then love would not have lost its respect,
And friendships would still be smiling.

Break the silence and tell me,
Is that all you have as an answer?
Because silence is not an answer

The hidden identity

Curious, I pick up a book

The writer unknown to me

I enter someone else’s world

To explore the life they lived

To feel the love they lost

To embrace the joy they felt

To share the pain they hid

I begin to explore the world unknown.

The joyous ride begins

I meet and greet new people on the way

I read who they are

Their name known, their face unknown,

Yet in them I find a reality of my own.

Then comes the time to bid goodbye

By the time I close the last page,

I have found a friend,

Who is sitting seas away frome me

Neither whose face I know nor his name

All I know of him is what he writes.

 

A promise to the year ahead…

I’ll try not spending you crying over people,

I’ll try not spending you in crying over what’s wrong,

I’ll try spending you creating beautiful memories with those around me,

I’ll try spending you in being happy with those whom I have with me.

I’ll try not spending you in filling myself with sadness,

I’ll try not spending you cribbing over what I don’t have,

I’ll try spending you smiling and spreading smiles,

I’ll try spending you in making efforts to  achieve what I want to.

I’ll try not spending you in finding faults in others,

I’ll try not spending you in thinking and speaking bad for others,

I’ll try spending you in finding my own faults and rectifying them,

I’ll try spending you in forgiving so as to forget for for my mental peace.

Most importantly,

I’ll try not spending you in being other’s version of me, 

I’ll try spending you in being the best version of myself. 

 

I had a dream

I had a dream…
A dream filled with happiness
I had a dream…
A dream filled with togetherness
I had a dream…
That reality wasn’t real
I had a dream…
That time had stopped
I had a dream…
Of hands held and smiling faces
I had a dream…
Of me with you
I had a dream…
A dream about the future
I had a dream…
A dream filled with you

Pearls

Pearls of an ornament,
Once which were adorned with praise,
Praise for having added shine to their owner’s day,
Now lay scattered on the floor.
Their identity belonged to the ornament they had added shine to.
Now they lay on the floor,
And all that is talked about them is, “throw them in the bin”…
The pride of someone yesterday,
Lies in the bin today.
They don’t make noise,
They don’t cry,
They know that is the rule of this world…
They had done their job…
It’s time for them to be thrown away.
